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.
A clsssic book that is part of many, many people’s success stories — the ideas in this book, when applied, will literally change your financial future.
Best-selling author Robert Kiyosaki discusses what the rich teach their children about money – that the poor and middle class do not! For people who want to become masters of their money and create sustained wealth for themselves and their families. How to make your money work for you and how to work smarter not harder.
