I want to start off by saying the below quote to you...
Don't waste a good mistake... Learn from it.- Robert Kiyosaki
Today I want to talk about or rather tell you about this man Robert Kiyosaki. My boyfriend told me about him and he sounded like an interesting man so figured I could tell you guys about him as he is an inspiration for many.
Robert Kiyosaki is an American investor, businessman, self-help author, motivational speaker, financial literacy activist and financial commentator. He is well known for his Rich Dad Poor Dad series of motivational books and other material published under the Rich Dad brand. He has written over 15 books. He also operates his own blog, www.richdad.com, and maintains a monthly column on Yahoo Finance.
His business ventures include Mining, Real estate, Oil wells and natural gas, Solar company, Precious metals and coins and Financial market which is all his investments into different companies and projects.
The part that really got me motivated and left me in Awe of him, was when I read about all his failures and how he never gave up. He was bankrupt twice when he was just starting out. Both the companies were a success for a while and then went bankrupt. In his book You can Choose to be Rich, he says that after his bankruptcy he became homeless and was living with his then girlfriend at the back of an old Toyota for several months before starting their own business from the ground up. And now look where he is? Very successful and worth an increasing $80 million. All because he never gave up and wanted very badly to be successful.
I love how he gives financial advice and shares his journey. He tells it as it is and educates the youth and old on finance, something that is very important, he is an inspiration to me and many other people! It feels good to know that you can fail once, twice, three times and even more and still get where you want to be. You just have to work hard and have that determination and keep your eye on that long term goal and vision.
