02 Apr RICH DAD POOR DAD
In Rich Dad Poor Dad, the #1 Personal Finance book of all time, Robert Kiyosaki shares the story of his two dads: his real father, whom he calls his ‘poor dad,’ and the father of his best friend, the man who became his mentor and his ‘rich dad.’ One man was well educated and an employee all his life, the other’s education was “street smarts” over traditional classroom education and he took the path of entrepreneurship…a road that led him to become one of the wealthiest men in Hawaii. Robert’s poor dad struggled financially all his life, and these two dads—these very different points of view of money, investing, and employment—shaped Robert’s thinking about money.
Robert has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people, around the world, think about money and investing and he has become a global advocate for financial education and the path to financial freedom. Rich Dad Poor Dad (and the Rich Dad series it spawned) has sold over 36 million copies in English and translated editions around the world. Source: Amazon.
There are many reasons why FITTEAM chose Rich Dad Poor Dad as our book of the month but one line in particular that stands out is: Rich Dad said, “A business needs both a spiritual and a business mission to be successful, especially at the beginning.”
Rich dad chose the words “spiritual” and “business.” He said, “Many people start a business only to make money. Just to make money is not a strong enough mission. Money alone does not provide enough fire, drive, or desire. The mission of a business should fill a need that the customers want. And if it fills that need, and fills it well, the business will begin to make money” – Robert Kiyosaki
At FITTEAM we understand this message and offer the opportunity to help people get “FIT” spiritually, emotionally, physically and financially, while finding their passion and improving their lives.
