Retire Young Retire Rich

If you’re tired of the same old investment advice – such as ‘be patient’, ‘invest for the long term’, and ‘diversify’ – then this book is for you. Robert explains in detail the power of leverage: How to leverage your mind, your financial plans, your actions and, most importantly, your first steps to becoming fianancially free.

This is a powerful personal story about how Robert and Kim Kiyosaki started with nothing, and retired financially free in less than 10 years. If you do not plan on working hard all your life, this is the book for you.

From the introduction by Robert Kiyosaki:
My previous books were on the power of cash flow. Rich dad said, “Cashflow is the most important word in the world of money. The second most important word is leverage.” He also said, “Leverage is the reason some people become rich and others do not become rich.” Rich dad went on to explain that leverage was power and power can work in your favour or against you.
I am very happy to be finally bringing this book to you. This book will definitely explain why I believe all of us already have the power and potential to be very rich … and I do mean all of us, not just some of us.

Lost Property – The Crash of 1987 … and the aftershock

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. – George Santayana

The crash of 1987 still reverberates in the psyche of many investors. Those turbulent days influence investment decisions and actions today, but not everybody fully understands their impact.

It wasn’t just the sharemarket that was affected – the crisis in business and lender confidence pulled the booming property market off its tracks. Mortgagee auctions and forced sales, bankruptcies and prosecutions followed as many formerly respected business figures fell from grace – breaking the faith of investors all over the world.

Lost Property is a searingly honest insider’s account of the build-up and the let-down, with its brutal aftermath. Read this book to learn what happened during the boom and the crash, how they came about and why. Olly Newland’s first-hand narrative is full of insights and parallels which today’s investor would be wise to consider. Ignore these lessons at your peril!

Additional DescriptionMore Details

From the book jacket:

“Many people remember with a shudder the massive stockmarket crash around the world in 1987. In New Zealand, as in many countries, it came on the back of an unprecedented share and property boom when huge sums of money could be made for the asking.

One of the stars of the New Zealand scene was Olly Newland, founder of Landmark and wheeler-dealer supreme. Banks queued at his door to lend him money, the media for advice and comment, and he was in demand as a speaker to investor groups.

Then, beginning in New York, the market suddenly crashed.

Here, Olly Newland gives an insider’s view of the build-up and the let-down — and lays the blame firmly at the doors of the banks and the government. Readers may never trust either again.

In this special edition, released for the 20th anniversary of the 1987 crash, Olly Newland reflects on how much – and how little – has changed since then. He shares valuable insights into the crash, drawing lessons from his own and others’ experiences in those frenetic days. Lost Property offers practical, timeless advice about building wealth and ongoing income from investment.”

Also available while stocks last: Limited edition of 200 numbered copies personally signed by Olly Newland.
