This Week’s Title: Rich Dad Poor Dad: What The Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! by Robert T Kiyosaki
Recommended By: Alan Alpert, Smart Office Founder
Favorite Quote: “In school we learn that mistakes are bad, and we are punished for making them. Yet, if you look at the way humans are designed to learn, we learn by making mistakes. We learn to walk by falling down. If we never fell down, we would never walk.” – Robert T Kiyosaki
Why We Love It: The direct selling industry is all about starting something new. You should not expect to be great, but also don’t quit after getting your first no. The great leaders in direct selling all started where you may be now. They practiced, maybe failed but they got better the next time, slowly finding the way to walk. Smart Office not only helps you walk but we can help you “run” by providing responsive communication tools that will help you succeed.
Book Summary: In the 20th Anniversary Edition of this classic, Robert offers an update on what we’ve seen over the past 20 years related to money, investing, and the global economy. Sidebars throughout the book will take readers “fast forward” — from 1997 to today — as Robert assesses how the principles taught by his rich dad have stood the test of time.
In many ways, the messages of Rich Dad Poor Dad, messages that were criticized and challenged two decades ago, are more meaningful, relevant and important today than they were 20 years ago.
