    Looks like RK finally jumped on the bandwagon, only about 14 years too late...
    IMG_0438.jpg

    Somewhat of an inside joke started by someone who was in the know...

    Not sure who it was, maybe @SteveO or @biophase or @andviv remembers.

    There were a number of us at that meeting. I walked in just after the fireworks. Russ was the most offended as Kiyosaki was directing his wrath at him.

    He basically told us to get offline and build a real business.

    Kiyosaki's better off selling rehash than this....
    Is the solopreneur online biz still a trend to bandwagon on these days?

    Can someone actually give me some insight into why RK is so popular in the mainstream? I've never really understood much of what he talks about, and I only found about 1/2 of his original book interesting.

    I believe it was in TMF that MJ said “Did the Lamborghini come before or after the book?” and I've never understood how people in the mainstream think RK makes his money on what he preaches rather than selling the books. :/

    @MJ DeMarco. My memory was that your handle was Phx_MJ? Something like that? What was yours SteveO? Mine was biophase.

    It was in 2006.

    @bulango RK is popular because he is seen as the gateway for a lot of people into entrepreneurship.

    From my experience, many people seem to come across Rich Dad, Poor Dad and then Cashflow Quadrant as entry points into understanding that there are other avenues to wealth other than being an employee or a business owner who is basically a glorified employee.

    His book was the first that I read that helped me see the light, albeit a bit dimly as he never really shared his keys to success other than at a baseline level in my perspective.

    However, I am sure that there are many others out there who have benefitted from his books more than I have.

    Advertising and reach. I had to order fast lane RK has a book in the bookmobile that comes to the villages from the local library.

    So it is much cheaper and easier for the wannabes to get exposed. It is right in buines section.

    So, I was lucky because I never bought his book... I don't know why but I always felt not very confident about him.

    Finally the first book I bought (about how to create wealth) was Napoleon Hill "Think and Grow Rich" instead of Rich Dad...

    A single-person business? But what's that going to do to the Rich Dad MLM recruitment cycle at McDonald's? Surely Robert must be confused about what Rich Dad would have really wanted from us. If you don't have a five level deep downline, how can one person ever hope to make enough money to escape the rat race??

    If you've never before in your life tried to really think about how life and jobs are scripted by a few, to the disadvantage of the many, his books give you an opportunity to think about these things in the context of some entertaining and well-told stories. The stories lead on to principles and techniques for how to discard that indoctrination and get rich in your own way. The problem is that the techniques, principles, and techniques are mostly fiction. Where they're nonfiction, they're presented in a glib way that's not actionable. But with the entertainment of value of fiction posed as nonfiction, that makes you feel vindicated about how society is screwed up, all is forgiven...

    If you're going to have a mix of mostly made up stories and partially useful business philosophy, might as well go back to the classics...
