I am here to tell you that my husband and I have recently finished reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad and I could hardly wait to share this post. (and YES, I know it has been around forever but I can't read everything at once!). Ok? — so back to Rich Dad, Poor Dad..
If you haven't read it, move it to the top of your list.
If you have read it, but haven't applied it – read it again.
Rich Dad, Poor Dad is a "make sense" book that offers excellent insight to the idea of leveraging yourself.
It will create a shift in thinking and I'm here to tell you that after reading that book, I realized that my insight on leveraging didn't go deep enough. It is easy to think about leveraging your assets when you own a business – you hire more employees and you create systems but how do you leverage assets if you have a job?
THAT is the question that author Robert Kiyosaki so eloquently answers. Interestingly enough, I consider myself fairly financially literate and had already subscribed to many of the principals he lays out in the book but what was missing for me was the clarity of WHY. I was fortunate enough to stumble on some things by accident but I am also very clear that had I operated with the financial intentionality of these principals even ten years ago, my family would definitely be completely living off of our investments by now….
Rather than risk getting too complex here, just do yourself a favor and buy this book! You should definitely read this book:
- Whether you make $20,000 a year or $200,000
- If you think you have NO "extra" money to invest
- If you would like to run your own life someday
- If you like dealing with finances but aren't sure where to start
You were born to be great.
YES, you can!
