Even though I had earned a degree in marketing from the University of Hawaii, school taught me very little about money and personal finance—and virtually nothing about entrepreneurship and investing. I knew something was missing.
About that same time in 1984, I met my future husband and business partner, Robert Kiyosaki. Many of you know him as the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad. Right from the beginning, we started talking about dreams, business, and money. In fact, on our very first date, Robert asked me, “What do you want to do with your life?” Without hesitating, I replied, “Well, number one, I’d like to own my own business.” We hit it off immediately.
I started my first business in 1984 and, as our romance grew, Robert and I started building businesses together. That’s when my real education began.
Through my businesses and investments, I have discovered happiness. I did not find happiness just in the successes, but in the failures too. I found happiness in the knowledge I gained with every decision, action, and mistake I made. Every time I was knocked down, I reflected, learned from the mistake, and got back up. I learned independence and discovered that, no matter what happens, I can take care of myself. The knowledge I gained during that process instilled a freedom and happiness in my life and my spirit.
I discovered what truly makes me happy is the knowledge I learn while on this journey we call life. That may not be your definition of happiness, but what’s important is that you define happiness for yourself and then have the financial means to achieve and enjoy it.
