Do Your Home Work If You Want To Be Rich

Robert Kiyosaki has written books which has caught my fancy. I had learnt basic financial intelligence from his widely celebrated best-selling title: Rich Dad, Poor Dad.
No. I don’t intend to say much about that book now. This one I want to talk about was released in 2001. I had seen the title on pages of specialized financial publications and heard about it on adverts.
I Eventually Got My Copy
Fortunately for me, I was able to raise the money to buy my personal copy in 2009. The lessons are as fresh as when it was first written in 2001. Think about words like ‘If you want to be rich, don’t go to school’. That is too radical for a juvenile mind to understand. What about this ‘If you want to be rich, do your home work’. Okay, if that one too is radical or difficult to understand what about this too ‘My banker don’t ask for my report card’. Then what does my banker ask for? He also went on to say ‘money does not make you rich’. Ooh! Then what makes one to be rich?
You may not have all the gist in this difficult to resist financial tips goldmine for anyone who desires true and winning financial success.
