“Knowledge is the new money…” -Robert Kiyosaki
I’ve mentioned this book in one of my previous posts, but I thought I’d make it an official “life changer book” recommendation.
When I began inquiring about business with my boss at the time, he told me that going into business was “different”. He told me that because I came from a working class background and upbringing. He knew that the business and investor class had a totally different mindset and perspectives on a various amount of things – from finances, life, what to purchase, to time, etc.
He was glad to see my ambition to one day open up a business. But, he knew he had to teach me a few things (it ended up being a lot of things). Thinking back, I am so thankful for what he has taught me and guided me through. Because a lot of the things that he opened up my eyes to are the very things that helped me to build a strong foundation for when I dove into the business world.
It all started with the book Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. Basically it’s a book about financial education and how majority of people don’t even have a clue about finances. Which is one of the reasons why people stay in the middle to poor working classes.
I loved this book because it did open up my eyes to how ignorant most people are about their money. As I think of where some of my friends are now and what they are doing, some of them make very high salaries, but they are always struggling for money!
