Financial Hero – Robert Kiyosaki

Why is ROBERT KIYOSAKI a Financial Hero?
Robert Kiyosaki became a Financial Hero of mine when I had given a copy of Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace, Revisited, to a summer engineering intern named Justin who was working at the manufacturing plant that I was at.  In turn, Justin gave me a copy of Robert Kiyosaki's book, The Cash Flow Quadrant.
I read the book and LOVED it!  I read this book within two days.  If you want to win financially, this book is a must-read.  What I loved most about The Cash Flow Quadrant is Robert's focus on your financial and overall mindset.  Do you have the mindset of an employee or a business owner?  Do you have the mindset of a professional or an investor?
Your approach to management of your money is crucial in creating wealth.  Thanks to Robert, the letters E, S, B, and I will never be looked at the same!
After I had read The Cash Flow Quadrant, I realized that Robert had previously written a book called Rich Dad, Poor Dad.  This book is just plain motivating!  Robert shares his story of growing up with a poor dad (his father) and a rich dad (his friend's dad).  He shares how his own father was highly educated, but was always broke.  Meanwhile, his friend's dad did not have all of the degrees, but was very wealthy.
Robert does emphasize the use of the bank's money to leverage the purchase of some properties which makes me a little uncomfortable, but that does not deter me from naming Robert Kiyosaki as a Financial Hero because Robert PLANS THOROUGHLY and has the heart of a teacher.
Robert, you are an official Financial Hero!  You force me to think differently.  I love that!
