I’m self-employed and I’ve tried myself at owning a business (at least at this point it’s “tried”). I’ve often wondered how did people get to become business owners or investors? What does it take? What are the real differences in mind sets?
I read “Rich Dad’s Cashflow Quadrant” right after reading “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” – the last one I read in the “Rich Dad’s Series”, so no worries, I won’t report on any more books from Robert T. Kiyosaki. It shows in really easy ways, how people that are in the different parts of the quadrant think and act.
It was a real eye opener to me (just like “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”). This book is not a how-to, just an overview that will help you understand weather you even want to operate in a different “quadrant”. Maybe you are self-employed and would like to own a business. Many “self-employees” don’t understand the difference between the two.
Here are a few excerpts from the first few pages of the book:
“Because my rich dad had explained the Quadrant to me, I was better able to see the small differences that grew into large differences when measured over the years a person spends working.”
“Changing quadrants is often a change at the core of who you are, how you think, and how you look at the world.”
If you are serious about becoming a business owner and gaining financial freedom, do yourself the favor and buy this book. You can get it at Amazon for under $13, if you buy it used, you can even get it for less than a $1. This book is definitely worth your time and money.
