Anyone who has been reading local personal finance blogs regularly in the last few years would have no doubt come across many accounts by bloggers about how they read a book titled "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" by Robert Kiyosaki and that changed the way they looked at money.
The book is about financial independence achieved through the ownership of income producing assets instead of working for a salary our entire life. Robert Kiyosaki is a natural story teller and the book is inspirational.
If you should be interested in getting a copy. There are great bargains at BetterWorldBooks:
Rich Dad, Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids about Money--That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! (Pre-owned copies available in good condition @ US$5.98 each)
Robert Kiyosaki also wrote another book which divides people into four distinct types:
E is for Employee
S is for Self-Employed or Specialist
B is for Big Business
I is for Investor
I would suggest this as a companion read to "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" as Robert tries to encourage readers to invest in financial education and to start investing for cash flow.
Rich Dad's Cashflow Quadrant: Rich Dad's Guide to Financial Freedom (Pre-owned copies available in very good condition @ US$6.98 each)
"It won’t happen overnight, and it will be hard work. But if you’re diligent, plan well, and execute your plan, you’ll be much better off in the future whether the markets are up or down." Robert Kiyosaki.
