215: Robert Kiyosaki on the Post-Pandemic Economy!
Robert Kiyosaki is the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, the best selling financial book of all time. He went on to publish several books including Cashflow Quadrant which fundamentally changed my life.
To say that Robert Kiyosaki has made an impact in the world is an understatement. He has helped to create a generation of entrepreneurs inspired by his writings. Many, including myself, discovered the very concept of entrepreneurship for the first time through his teachings.
Pretty impressive right? Imagine making such an impact on the world. It sure sounds like a life worth living to me. And you know what makes it all the more inspirational? He was 50 years old when he published Rich Dad Poor Dad!
Of course Robert was successful before Rich Dad Poor Dad. But he would be the first one to agree that the trajectory of his life really peaked after 50.
This pandemic has taken its toll on many of us. While thousands have died, the emotional casualties will never be truly appreciated and is reflected, in part, by the social unrest we are seeing across this country.
In that context, I am looking for something to be hopeful about today. To me, Robert Kiyosaki’s books were paradigm changing when I first read them. But now, as a 46 year old guy feeling a little blue, it’s his success later in life that has me feeling inspired.
The truth be told, I don’t agree with everything Robert says these days, but he is someone that has earned the right to be heard. As a guy who does not routinely engage in hero worship, he has also earned my eternal gratitude.
As such, it is my pleasure to present you with this week’s Wealth Formula Podcast featuring an interview with Robert Kiyosaki regarding the post-pandemic economy.
