Best known as the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad- the #1 personal finance book of all time-Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. He is an entrepreneur, educator, and investor who believes the world needs more entrepreneurs who will create jobs. With perspectives on money and investing that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned an international reputation for straight talk, irreverence, and courage and has become a passionate and outspoken advocate for financial education. Robert and Kim Kiyosaki are founders of The Rich Dad Company, a financial education company, and creators of the CASHFLOW(R) games. In 2014, the company will leverage the global success of the Rich Dad games in the launch of a new and breakthrough offering in mobile and online gaming. Robert has been heralded as a visionary who has a gift for simplifying complex concepts-ideas related to money, investing, finance, and economics-and has shared his personal journey to financial freedom in ways that resonate with audiences of all ages and backgrounds. His core principles and messages-like your house is not an asset and invest for cash flow and savers are losers-have ignited a firestorm of criticism and ridicule...only to have played out on the world economic stage over the past decade in ways that were both unsettling and prophetic. His point of view is that old advice-go to college, get a good job, save money, get out of debt, invest for the long term, and diversify-has become obsolete advice in today's fast-paced Information Age. His Rich Dad philosophies and messages challenge the status quo. His teachings encourage people to become financially educated and to take an active role in investing for their future.
