This financial education stuff really works!

Insights from a Rich Dad student

Are you stuck in a rut and worried about your finances and retirement? I can relate. About a year ago, I felt the same way, and after reading the Rich Dad books, I learned that my financial IQ was pretty low. But instead of listening to negative family and friends, I decided to do something about it.

Fast-forward to today. My husband and I just closed on our first, two rental properties, and our money is starting to work for us! I was so excited that I told Kim Kiyosaki, and she asked me to share some insights about my experience with you so here it goes…

Increase your Financial Education.

After convincing my husband to join me, we started Rich Dad Coaching and studied real-estate investing whenever we could find the time. There was a lot of information to cover, but the more we learned, the more excited we got about our financial future.

Our Rich Dad Coach guided us through the process step-by-step, and in a few months, we put our team of attorneys, CPAs, bookkeepers, and real estate agents together and set up our official, real-estate-investing business. It was time to take action on what we’d been studying so we started looking at properties, running the numbers for cash flow and making offers.

It was frustrating at times, but we encouraged each other to keep moving forward. And a few weeks later, our patience and hard work paid off as our offers on two, different properties were accepted. When we attended the closings, and received the house keys, I was elated.

I Can’t Believe I’m a Real Estate Investor!

Just a little over a year ago, I was where many of you are now… wondering how to move ahead financially and prepare for retirement in today’s economy. My husband and I don’t have a lot of money or rich relatives, but with the Rich Dad information and support from the right team members, we are now on the right path to a secure, financial future.

Becoming a real-estate investor takes time, effort and a positive attitude, but it’s so exciting to learn new things that can actually change your life! And Kim and Robert Kiyosaki are exactly right. You can study so much, and then you just have to do it… so we are finally on our way.
