It’s not by accident we keep running into the same people. These folks all have the same desire … to read between the lines and find the TRUTH about what’s really happening in the world. And they don’t jump to conclusions.
Robert Kiyosaki has helped us see both sides of the story for decades. This time around we chat with him about his views on the financial system, fake teachers, and the importance of real assets.
In this episode of The Real Estate Guys™ show you’ll hear from:
- Your very real host, Robert Helms
- His faking-it co-host, Russell Gray
- Best-selling financial author Robert Kiyosaki

Get a REAL education
We spoke with Robert Kiyosaki at Freedom Fest. “I come to learn,” he says.
Freedom Fest and similar events … like the New Orleans Investment Conference … are like a mental gym. “They challenge the way I think,” says Robert.
That’s one reason educational events are so important (like our Future of Money and Wealth video training series, which features talks by Robert and many more financial gurus).
REAL education is more than just listening to the salespeople. It’s getting outside your cocoon and seeking out new information.
Invest in your PASSION
One idea Robert thinks is really essential in the investing business is to invest in what you love and enjoy. “I do think real estate is the best,” says Robert … that’s why it has been his bread and butter for years.
But maybe avocadoes are your passion … in that case, perhaps you should consider investing in an avocado farm.
You should always do your due diligence and work with a good financial planner … but investing in your PASSION will always be more successful than investing in something you’re “meh” about.
REAL assets, REAL money, and REAL teachers
“We don’t have a prayer as long as we’re working for money,” says Robert. He believes investors should steer away from money … in favor of REAL assets.
Investors should also surround themselves with REAL professionals … those who’ve done their research and know what they’re talking about.
A lot of people are in trouble because they’re learning from FAKE teachers, says Robert … people who don’t have a real conception of cash flow.
Two other things investors should be aware of … FAKE money and FAKE assets.
Be wary of a monetary system that isn’t backed up (by gold, for example), and don’t rely on traditional assets, Robert advises.
If you’re doing everything “right” … working a 9-to-5 job, putting money in your 401k, investing in stocks … you’re being screwed by the system, says Robert.
SMART investors have to learn to work WITH the system.

REAL talk about our financial system
Central banks control paper money … and that’s dangerous, says Robert. He cites people like Jim Rogers, who believes we’re headed for the worst crash yet because we have an abundance of printed money and debt.
“Tragedy follows printing money,” says Robert.
But it doesn’t matter how bad the system is … what matters is the actions YOU take. We like to say BE the Fed … don’t BEAT the Fed.
That means figuring out how to make the most of our financial system … knowing the tax laws and figuring out how to make them work for you.
“The next collapse will look like something we’ve never seen before,” says Robert.
But investors don’t have to be scared … if they prepare for the inevitable BEFORE it happens.
We talked with Robert about digital currencies, like Bitcoin. “Gold and silver were here before us and will be here forever,” says Robert.
But investors need to look at real assets (like property and gold), cybercurrency, AND paper money when they’re investing … because they’re the three big components of our current monetary system.
Smart investors work to figure out what is real and lasting.
A REAL financial expert
Robert has been studying the financial system forever. He remembers the history of money and has watched the financial system change.
As we often say, “Those who fail to remember history are doomed to repeat it.”
You HAVE to understand financial fundamentals and the structure of our financial system before you can read the news and really SEE between the lines.
Like Robert says, a crash is highly likely … we can’t predict WHEN it will happen, but we CAN hedge against the eventuality of it.
Get educated … so you can stay on top of the wave when the tsunami comes.
