Robert Kiyosaki and Thomas Sowell wrote two very different books about money: “Rich Dad” and “Poor Dad.” Although they share some anger, they have very different ideas about how to earn money. Let’s explore some of the differences between the two. Rich Dad creates money first and spends it on things. Poor Dad has a different concept of money.
Rich Dad is a very educated man
If you’ve read Rich Dad, Poor Dad, you know that the rich have very different lifestyles than the poor. While they may have similar jobs, they don’t necessarily spend as much time working. They don’t have as much money, and they don’t have to do as much work to get what they want. If you want to know how to get the same lifestyle, you can follow the advice from the Rich Dad.
Robert worked in accounting, construction, sales, reservations, marketing, and more before joining Rich Dad’s team. After graduating from high school, he took a job at Xerox and began to learn how to sell. In less than six months, he was consistently in the top salesmen’s list. He commissioned as a 2nd Lt. in the U.S. Marine Corps and began investing his commissions in real estate assets.
Robert learned how to manage money from his rich dad’s real-world experiences. While working for his rich dad as a teenager, he learned that many people feel they don’t have enough money to change their lives. They may increase their incomes, but that doesn’t change their circumstances. Ultimately, it’s a matter of personal choice.
Poor Dad is a very angry man
A new generation of angry men are coming forward to change their bad habits. Instead of ignoring the consequences of their behavior, they seek help from a therapist or couples counselor. Some do so out of conscience or because their partners are threatening to leave them. Others seek help because they are worried about the impact their anger is having on their children and their family. In some cases, anger management is necessary to save the family and their marriage.
Kiyosaki was raised by two very important fathers. His biological father was highly intelligent, and believed in the power of hard work. Unfortunately, his career and his job tenure kept him trapped in the Rat Race. He was unable to achieve the lifestyle he desired. He was constantly preoccupied with salary raises, sick leaves, and company insurance.
They share anger with Robert Kiyosaki
Robert Kiyosaki’s “Poor Dad, Rich Dad” book has earned him much attention. He shares that his father, a public school superintendent in Hawaii, had become wealthy after a successful run for lieutenant governor in the 1970s. He grew up to be a successful businessman and entrepreneur, despite his humble background. In his youth, he wanted to be rich like his father and the rich kids he saw around him.
Robert Kiyosaki grew up in Hawaii, but he attended an elementary school with a high percentage of wealthy kids. Rich kids tended to have newer toys and were more likely to be invited to parties. Kiyosaki was told by his friends that he was too poor to attend their parties, and he has spent the last thirty years trying to prove himself worthy of being invited to parties.
Robert Kiyosaki grew up with two dads – his real father and his friend’s dad. He learned that you don’t need a lot of money to become rich. In fact, most people are stuck in jobs they hate and make too little. While many people are fortunate enough to be given a raise or two, it does not change their lives.
They have very different ideas on how to make money
The Rich Dad and the Poor Dad are very different in terms of their ideas of how to make money. Although both men have the same basic values, their methods of making money are very different. The Rich Dad focuses on saving money and not dipping into it to make ends meet. While the Poor Dad is more concerned with focusing on spending, the Rich Dad prioritizes making money before spending it.
The Rich Dad teaches his boys through real-world experiences. He taught his son Robert that money was important, and that working hard for less than you’re worth is not a good thing. When Robert realized he wasn’t being paid enough, he complained to Rich Dad. He explained that most people are stuck in jobs they don’t like and get paid too little for them.
Robert Kiyosaki is the author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad. The book is the best-selling personal finance book of all time. It explains how to make money, and dispels the myth that the rich were born rich.
