OFF-TOPIC Rich Dad's latest scam?

I've been seeing adds for "Rich Dad's Boring Trading Method" in my news feed. Out of curiosity I clicked on one and was taken to an "advertorial" (what the hell?). In it Robert Kiyosaki claims that he wants to help you get rich investing - using his boring method. All you need to do is attend his Weekly Cash Flow Summit. I'm so disappointed in Mr. Kiyosaki. RDPD was the first entrepreneurial book I ever read. It opened my eyes to the possibility of a different life. After a few years of reading his books, playing his game (literally) and even attending one of his "free" seminars, I realized what MJ would later confirm. Mr. Kiyosaki was getting rich selling us how to get rich.

So while I will always credit Mr. Kiyosaki for opening my eyes to a different life, I can only shake my head in disappointment at his methods. He is filling a need - the need that so many feel in wanting to be rich. He is filling that need with ideas and methods of dubious possibility. And it would appear he is getting rich in the process.
What's your point? You are disappointed in him? But, here you are working toward your own goals. Maybe you already got what he was selling...
