Wealthy Dad, Poor Dad is an absolute juggernaut of a e-book–it’s been on the bestseller lists for so long as I bear in mind. I re-read this e-book yesterday. Man, there are some actually nice factors, like how wealthy individuals earn cash work for them and the way everybody else works for cash. The primary chapter is pure magic–learn it. Certainly one of my favourite quotes is from his Wealthy Dad:
Most individuals by no means examine the topic [money]. They go to work, get their paycheck, steadiness their checkbooks, and that’s it. On high of that, they marvel why they’ve cash issues. Few understand that it’s their lack of monetary training that’s the downside.
He takes a dim view of people that blindly make selections with out stopping to ask themselves why:
A buddy of mine in Hawaii is a superb artist. He makes a large sum of money. Someday his mom’s legal professional referred to as to inform him that she had left him $35,000. That is what was left of her property after the legal professional and the federal government took their shares. Instantly, he noticed a chance to extend his enterprise by utilizing a few of this cash to promote. Two months later, his first four-color, full-page advert appeared in an costly journal that focused the very wealthy. The advert ran for 3 months. He acquired no replies from the advert, and all of his inheritance is now gone. He now desires to sue the journal for misrepresentation.
This can be a widespread case of somebody who can construct an attractive hamburger, however is aware of little about enterprise. Once I requested him what he discovered, his solely reply was that “promoting salespeople are crooks.” I then requested if he can be keen to take a course in gross sales and a course in direct advertising. His reply, “I don’t have the time, and I don’t need to waste my cash.”
The e-book does a incredible job educating how to consider work and cash. Its early elements are among the finest I’ve learn.
