Robert T. Kiyosaki
Rich Dad Poor Dad is a book that has become a classic among the millennial generation. It advocates for financial independence, building wealth through assets, starting a business and increasing financial intelligence. The authors’ main goal is to help people achieve financial independence and financial literacy. The book is divided into four main parts: financial literacy, real estate investing, starting a business and increasing financial intelligence.
The book begins with a story about a 9-year-old Robert Kiyosaki. He was rejected by the rich kids at his public school and asked his teacher, who was a rich man, for advice. Robert, in turn, commiserated with his best friend Mike and conceived the idea to mint nickels and melt toothpaste tubes. Robert’s dad suggested they talk to their friend Mike’s father, who was already a wealthy businessman. The two men then set up a meeting and began their lessons.
Robert Kiyosaki grew up in Hawaii, where he attended an elementary school filled with wealthy kids. His friends were richer and their toys were newer than his. They wouldn’t invite him to their parties because they assumed he was poor. That was the beginning of his lifelong quest to prove himself worthy of being invited to parties.
Robert Kiyosaki’s father
Robert Kiyosaki’s father was not a businessman, but he did know a little something about making money. He told Kiyosaki that when he was young, his best friend Mike was very poor. So, when Mike wanted to make some money, his father suggested that he learn from Rich Dad. Rich Dad offered to teach Kiyosaki how to make money in return for some free work. Kiyosaki jumped at the chance. His dad taught him to work in a local supermarket. His father didn’t have an expensive house or a fancy car, but he knew a lot about how to make money.
Robert’s father was a real-life example of the importance of financial literacy. His father worked long hours for little pay, but it was enough to make him realize that there was something better. He even grew tired of working for not enough money, and complained about it to Rich Dad. He understood that most people are stuck in jobs that they hate, and they are paid too little for them.
Robert Kiyosaki’s friend’s father
In Rich Dad, Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki details his own personal story and reveals his friend’s father, Richard Kimi. Although Rich Dad is a fictional character, his story is based on real-life events. Kimi’s father passed away in 2009 and was never officially identified as Rich Dad, but he was the inspiration for Kiyosaki’s ideas.
Robert Kiyosaki grew up with two different fathers, one of whom had a Ph.D., and another who did not finish high school. One struggled financially as a kid, and the other one eventually became the richest man in Hawaii. Robert often compared the two fathers and realized that they both had financial struggles early in their lives.
According to Kiyosaki, Kimi’s dad was rich because he was a hotelier. His friend’s father had accumulated his fortune in the hotel industry and lived in Hawaii with his son. The two had a confidentiality agreement that prohibited them from disclosing their financial details.
Robert Kiyosaki’s real dad
Robert Kiyosaki is a fourth generation Japanese American. He started to dream about success at an early age. As a result, he started a few small businesses. Despite the obstacles he faced, Robert Kiyosaki was determined to succeed and became a successful businessman.
Robert Kiyosaki was born in Hawaii in 1957 and served in the Marine Corps in Vietnam. He also earned an Air Medal for his bravery in the war. After the Vietnam War, Robert joined a copy machine salesman at Xerox, and then he launched a business that was successful in selling nylon and Velcro.
However, Kiyosaki never revealed the identity of his real dad. The reason for this was that he wanted to maintain the confidentiality of his relationship with his real dad. It is believed that he and his real father had a strict confidentiality agreement.
