Happy New Week Lovelies!
Welcome to Memory Lane Mondays!
This is a weekly feature of unforgettable books I have read in times past which have not had the chance to be reviewed on this blog as I read them a long time ago. Lets’ call them my personal classics. I will be featuring a new favorite every week and I hope you will be interested to read and enjoy some as I have.
This week’s pick is….
‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’ by Robert Kiyosaki
I remember reading this book in 2001 or so and since then I have read it quite a number of times (you can see the evidence from my copy in the photo). It was my first introduction to financial education which made me to see money, spending and savings from a totally different perspective. I have gone on to read more books about personal finance and more but I will always remember this book as the gate that opened up my interest in financial education and encouraged me to start a small business.
I would still recommend this book to anyone who is new to personal finance as I still believe it is a good place to start.
Have you read this book?
This book will:
* Explode the myth that you need to earn a high income to become rich
* Challenge the belief that your house is an asset
* Show parents why they can’t rely on the school system to teach their kids about money
* Define once and for all an asset and a liability
* Teach you what to teach your kids about money so they will benefit in ways you did not
