investor, businessman, author, motivational speaker, and financial commentator who
became well-known in the recent years who has an estimated net worth of 80
million dollars! Want to know something interesting? “Oh?” He wasn’t raised in a
wealthy background. His family was like most people who work but didn’t
have the best financial education and Often struggled with money. So then, how did Robert become rich today?
Let’stake a look as he explains in one of his bestsellers called Rich Dad Poor Dad Robert Kiyosaki was born in Hilo Hawaii in April 1947 in 1957, at age nine years old, little Robert was attending the same

So one day, Robert asked his father who

Unfortunately, his dad didn’t know the
correct answer because he was a rich

The other said, how can I afford that?
Although both men had tremendous respect
