Brien Lundin on metals and money supply

Brien Lundin is our go-to expert on precious metals. He writes the Gold Newsletter and directs the New Orleans Investment Conference.

His predictions about the metals market have been spot on. We asked him how he keeps his thumb on the pulse. The short answer? “Experience,” says Brien.

Three decades of reading, researching, and making connections have given Brien enough information to come to the conclusion that, “Metals have settled into a fairly reliable long-term pattern.”

In fact, he says the future for metals is as close to inevitable as possible in the investing world.

High debt in the U.S. and other countries means their currencies will be depreciated, at least to some extent, and that means higher gold prices in the long term, says Brien.

With a predicted three or four rate hikes coming from the Fed in the next year, Brien predicts we’ll continue to have a weaker dollar for several years.

Why should real estate investors be interested in metals? Alternative investments like precious metals allow you to divorce yourself from the levers the government pulls to adjust the economy, says Brien.

Confused about the options? “Roll up your sleeves,” and dive in, says Brien.

Brien also had some words of advice … “Look around you to get the best investment advice.”

One way to do that? Attend the New Orleans Investment Conference. The conference is packed with people looking to learn. Off-mic conversations are part of the package!

Peter Schiff on the global economy and Puerto Rico

“It’s easier than people think to predict the future. The hard part is predicting the ‘when,’” says Peter.

Economists have been predicting a dollar crisis for a while, and Peter thinks we are in the beginning of that crisis … “The dollar is dropping like a stone against the Chinese yuan,” he says.

Why? According to Peter, it’s payback for monetary policy mistakes from the Fed that led to the major economic crises of the past few decades, including the dot-com bubble and the housing bubble.

“As the dollar is falling, prices are rising,” says Peter. Oil prices are up. Bond yields are rising, and that means interest rates are rising too. Peter predicts the combination of rising prices and high interest rates will be too much for the market to bear.

Crisis is coming, he says.

“What’s going to kill us is the government’s cure,” Peter adds. After the real estate bubble collapsed, the government attempted to pump up the market by slashing interest rates … and succeeding in completely re-inflating the bubble. That bubble will make the crisis worse, he says.

Peter has started his own investment fund through Euro Pacific Capital. He aims to help investors diversify out of the U.S. dollar.

Gold stocks have moved up, says Peter. “We are really poised now for major gain.”

And what about Puerto Rico? If you’ve been listening to the show, you’ll know Peter not only invests in Puerto Rico, but lives there too.

“It’s green again,” says Peter. There are some problems due to service providers who have left the island. But overall, “People think it’s worse than it is,” he says.

In fact, Peter thinks there’s more opportunity in Puerto Rico than before Hurricane Maria. Abandoned properties and foreclosures could be the perfect opportunity for investors to step in.

Chris Martenson and Adam Taggart on social capital and the Summit at Sea™

Chris Martenson and Adam Taggart, co-authors of the invaluable book Prosper!, chatted with us about some tangible steps to help YOU prosper.

Key among them is social capital.

“What are your strengths and weaknesses?” asks Adam. “Find people who have complementary skills and can fill in your weaknesses.”

“No one can really have a handle on everything,” Chris adds. In our rapidly changing world, he says it’s wonderful when you can recognize people as kindred spirits … and learn from many points of view.

One way to get around some kindred spirits is to attend our annual Investor Summit at Sea™. In fact, all of the guests in this episode will attend the Summit.

It’s more about context than content, Chris and Adam agree … and we’re sure the context of the Summit will be the environment of your investor dreams.

Robert Kiyosaki on humility and getting around smart folks

Robert Kiyosaki doesn’t believe in school. “The trouble with going to school is that you have to be an expert by yourself, and that keeps you small,” he says.

More important than money or school smarts? “A very smart team” that operates on the basis of mutual respect and trust.

Robert recommends hanging around people who DON’T think they’re the smartest people in the room. Humility is a great tool, he says.

“All coins have three sides. Most people think there’s only one side … theirs,” says Robert. “It’s impossible for a coin to only have one side. Intelligence equals standing on the edge and looking at both sides.”

Like F. Scott Fitzgerald once said, “The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.”

Robert recommends getting around other investors so you can get around a variety of ideas. He recommends the Summit … and you’ll be able to meet him if you come!

Plus, Robert’s wife Kim Kiyosaki will hold a special ladies-only session at the Summit. Robert encourages female investors and partners of investors to attend and learn about why they don’t need a man to get ahead.

Meet and mingle with smart people

No one knows where the future is headed with certainty … but there’s one thing all our smart investor friends are certain about, and that’s the importance of getting around the right people and assembling your team.

Want to reach out? The Investor Summit at Sea™ is the perfect first step.

Unable to attend the entire Summit? Consider joining us on land for the first two days. We’re holding a brand-new event, a conference we’re calling The Future of Money and Wealth.

Hoping to see you there!

08/02/15: Investing Inspiration and Enlightenment from Freedom Fest

Freedom is more than just an ideal.  It’s a powerful force which inspires super-human effort, creativity and sacrifice.

Freedom is what inspires many real estate investors to invest time and risk capital.  They want to be financially free.Freedom is one of mankind's most precious rights

In our 6th annual pilgrimage to Freedom Fest, we met several very interesting people…each of whom have a unique a real estate story to tell.

We’re quite sure their stories will inspire you!

Exercising their right to free speech in this enlightening episode:

  • The founding father of The Real Estate Guys™ radio show, host Robert Helms
  • His talent-free co-host, Russell Gray
  • Chinese immigrant to the U.S. and real estate investor, Lily Tang Williams
  • International farmland investor and entrepreneur, Craig Colley
  • Managing Director of the Competitiveness and Enterprise Cities Project, Shanker Singham
  • Venture capital and private equity entrepreneur, Erick Brimen
  • Real estate syndicator and long-time listener, Dr. Eric Tait

Freedom Fest bills itself as the world’s largest gathering of free minds.  After attending six years in a row, we’d have to agree.

And while we always enjoy landing interviews with big names like Steve Forbes, Grover Norquist and Donald Trump, sometimes the most interesting people we meet are far from household names.

The opening session at Freedom Fest featured a panel of people who were sharing their answer to the question:  Is the American Dream Still Alive?

One of the panelists was a fiery Chinese immigrant named Lily Tang Williams.

Lily got us so fired up, we decided we wanted to share her with you!

As you’ll hear, Lily is from mainland China.  And in spite of all the progress made in China, their people are far from free.

So Lily decided she wanted to leave China and come to America to pursue the American Dream.

Lily Tang Williams arrives in America from China in 1988She borrowed some money from relatives and landed in America.  She could barely speak English and had $100 of borrowed money in her pocket.

But she had a dream.

And as fate would have it, she picked up a copy of a little purple book called Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki.Rich Dad Poor Dad is a book about investing and business that has impacted the lives of millions of people around the world

Now Lily had more than a dream.  She had a plan.

She realized she could buy real estate using the lender’s money.

So she called up her friends in China and said, “Hey!  Let’s buy some U.S. real estate and become financially free!”

But her friends said no.

Undeterred, Lily and her husband did it anyway.

Today, they own several properties and Lily is a full time real estate investor.

No matter how many times we hear these stories (and we hear them a lot!)…we never get tired of them.  We can only imagine how Robert Kiyosaki feels.

Next on deck is Craig Colley.

Craig’s story is very different.

He ended up looking OUTSIDE the United States for opportunity and ended up in Nicaragua where he discovered the concept of investing in timber.

Craig found out that no matter what gyrations the financial markets are going through…booms, busts, panics, collapses, corruption or geo-political turmoil…

Trees just keep growing…about 6-8 percent per year.  Stop and think about that for a moment.  The asset is the tree and it grows…naturally….consistently…predictably.

Trees keep growing...pretty much no matter what's happening in the worldCombine this with a similarly predictable phenomenon…global population which just keeps growing too. And along with that growth comes a growing need for timber.  It’s the same thing we like about farmland in general.

When you’re investing for the long term, you can almost completely ignore all the daily drama of financial markets…and simply bank on trees and population to just keep growing.

When you consider the long term trend of currency devaluations around the world, investments in farmland which produce a durable, universally needed commodity like timber make sense as a long term, inflation hedged,  and relatively stable long term investment.

Eventually those trees get sold.  But you still have the land.  And guess what?  You can grow more trees!  That’s nothing to bark at.  Nice.  Sounds like a stupid pun we wood make.  We probably shouldn’t branch off into humor.  We better just leaf it alone.  We don’t want our audience to splinter.

Okay, on back to the broadcast…

Then we sat down with Shanker Singham and Erick Brimen.

Shanker is a big time braniac with a really cool English accent.  So not only is Shanker truly brilliant…but he SOUNDS super smart as well!

Shanker Sigham is the Managing Director of the Competitiveness and Enterprise Cities ProjectWe’d read off his resume, but we’d get carpal tunnel.

The main thing to know is that Shanker heads up something called the Competitiveness and Enterprise Cities Project though Babson College.

Babson College is one of the most prolific and respected entrepreneur schools in the world.

The Competitiveness and Enterprise Cities Project is all about coaching countries on how to attract people, business and capital by creating a welcoming environment called an Enterprise City.

It’s like an enterprise zone on steroids.

Think of the U.S. way back in the early days…a place with a stable set of laws which protected the freedom of enterprise and its fruits…rather than hindering it with obstacles and burdens.

Of course, it takes money to get things going.  And that’s where Erick Brimen comes in.

Erick raises capital from private investors to acquire the land.  And he does it when he knows the city is about to be approved by the government.  Very clever.

This is clearly inside information, but guess what?  As we always say…inside information is perfectly legal in real estate.  We love it.

Naturally, when the enterprise zoning is announced and business and capital start to arrive, the land appreciates substantially…and not based on inflation…but because of an actual increase in demand.

Awesome.

But what’s even better is the social aspect of this type of investing.

You can imagine the impact on the region in terms of creating opportunities for the local people.

It’s like when Walt Disney surreptitiously aggregated land in central Florida…and then built Disney World.Disney World changed the economy of Orlando Florida

Sure, he made millions.  He deserved to because he created massive value for the world.

But that “enterprise city” called Disney World created many thousands of jobs and all kinds of local businesses sprouted up around it.

The point is it’s not only possible…but preferable…to do well by doing good.

So when the entire Freedom Fest experience was over, we sat down with our good friend, long-time listener and alumni of our Secrets of Successful Syndication seminar…Dr. Eric Tait…and asked him to share his reflections in his very first Freedom Fest.

In short, Dr. Tait found…as we have over the years…that Freedom Fest is a great place to go to find a smorgasbord of people and ideas.  And while you might not agree with everything everyone says, your thinking and imagination are stimulated.

So listen in to this episode and allow yourself to be both inspired and enlightened!

Robert Kiyosaki Talks Second Chance – For Your Money, Your Life and Our World

Exclusive Robert Kiyosaki Second Chance Interview

Like him or not, Robert Kiyosaki has had an ENORMOUS impact on the world. Kiyosaki’s signature book, Rich Dad Poor Dad is the greatest selling personal finance book in the history of the world.

Over the years, we’ve become good friends with Mr. Kiyosaki.  He’s far more cerebral and complex than you might imagine.  In fact, he’s downright brilliant.  So yes, we’re fanboys.

In his latest book, Second Chance, Robert Kiyosaki reviews the past, analyzes the present and predicts the future.

And like Peter Schiff, Robert Kiyosaki is not afraid to go on the record with controversial predictions.  Check this out…

So when we heard that the Robert Kiyosaki Second Chance book was out, we jumped in our semi-private jet (the one we share with 145 other people and affectionately call “Southwest”) and landed in Scottsdale to sit down face to face with the Man himself…

In the Rich Dad Radio studios talking the past, present and future of the global economy and what it means to you:

  • Your very present host, Robert Helms
  • His past-his-prime co-host, Russell Gray
  • The best-selling financial author in the history of the world, Robert Kiyosaki

Robert Kiyosaki Second Chance book coverYou might be wondering if Robert Kiyosaki has anything left to say…after all, he’s written a gazillion books.  And if you’ve read any of them, you probably recognize some recurring themes.

So is Second Chance just really just a second chance for Kiyosaki to ring the cash register again with a souped up retread of Rich Dad Poor Dad?

Well….no.

First, Robert isn’t really money motivated.  Otherwise, he’d make us pay him a big fat fee when he appears at our events.  And he doesn’t.  He already has tons of money.

The Robert Kiyosaki we’ve gotten to know is mission minded.  He REALLY wants people to understand how to play the financial game in a practical way.  And he feels strongly that financial training is a HUGE missing part of the world’s educational systems.

Second Chance explains, with data (charts and graphs), where we (primarily the U.S., which has in turn infected…er, impacted…the world) came from;  where we are now…and then looks forward to where we’re headed.

The data is credible.  The picture it paints is disconcerting.  But if you care about your financial future, you need to look at it.Sometimes you need to look at the data...no matter how disturbing it is

For the unprepared, the future will be “messy”.

For those who can see what’s coming and organize their resources, and develop the skills, knowledge and relationships to prosper…the future has hope.

And the first step towards preparation is education.

So Kiyosaki gets into the mechanics of the financial system…how the educational and financial institutions have worked (conspired?) together to create paradigms which don’t empower prosperity for the average person; and then he predicts what he thinks will happen and why.

Then most importantly, Kiyosaki shares what anyone alert and brave enough can do to not just survive, but thrive, as major changes occur globally.

Is it alarming?  Yes.

Is it gloom and doom?  No.

The past provides case studies we can learn from to predict the future.

The present is what we have to create the future we want…but it must be based on the realities of what’s happening around us.Robert Kiyosaki Second chance author quote on the future

For example, global debt levels are astronomical.

Central banks worldwide are engaged in what James Rickards calls “Currency Wars“.

These policies have a direct impact on interest rates, job creation, food and energy prices, asset values (stocks, real estate, precious metals, etc.), and financial system stability (or better stated…instability).

Some will get rich.  Many will become poor.  BOTH very DIFFERENT outcomes will occur in the SAME set of circumstances.

How can that be?

One of the things we’ve most enjoyed learning from Robert Kiyosaki is a generalized principle he learned from futurist Bucky Fuller (whom Kiyosaki dedicated Second Chance to)…

Unity is plural and at a minimum, two.

Noodle on that for a moment.

In other words, to see the WHOLE, you must see ALL sides.  In the Robert Kiyosaki Second Chance book, he uses the analogy of a coin…saying there’s heads, there’s tails….and there’s the edge.  And only when you stand on the edge can you see the whole.To see things clearly, you need to see ALL sides

In the future, there will be winners and there will be losers.  Some will be prepared and profit.  Others will be unprepared and be impoverished.  Same world.  VERY different results.  You MUST decide which side you want to be on.  And no decision IS a decision.

None of us can stop the future.  The forces are too great.  But we can stand on the edge and see the opportunity in every problem.

So yes, Kiyosaki draws attention to the problems.  But he also shines the light of hope on the opportunities…and in this case, it starts with financial education…something that is readily available to anyone willing to seek it out.

That’s a good thing, because we all need a Second Chance.

11/18/12: Don’t Give Up, Give Back – Turning Your Passion Into Action

Do you ever get discouraged or wonder if there’s more to life than just making money and having a good time?

As the U.S. celebrates Thanksgiving and heads into an orgy of consumerism starting with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we thought it important to reflect on some of life’s higher purposes – at least as far as investing goes.

Behind the microphones for today’s inspirational episode:

  • Your higher powered host, Robert Helms
  • The turkey co-host, Russell Gray
  • The Godfather of Real Estate, Bob Helms
  • A not-so-ordinary investor with a purpose, Rita Khagram

We’re guessing you’ve never heard of Rita Khagram.  She isn’t famous or outrageously wealthy.  In fact, if you met her on the street you’d guess she’s just an ordinary woman working her way through life, which is true.  But then again, it’s only part of her remarkable story.

We first met Rita at a Rich Dad Advisor retreat.  Robert Kiyosaki asked her to share how the lessons of Rich Dad Poor Dad and the Cash Flow game had impacted Rita’s life.  When she finished telling the story, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.  It was THAT powerful.

But in addition to being inspirational, there were also some very practical lessons about business and investing.  So even if you’re not that into heart warming stories, you’ll like this interview because Rita shares valuable practical lessons she’s learned about both investing and building successful businesses.

And while she’s no Donald Trump (yet), Rita has acquired over 20 properties in just 3 years, while also building and expanding a successful optician business.  She credits much of her success to the practical financial education she received through Rich Dad.

But there’s much more to Rita’s story than just her real estate and business success.

Rita was born into a culture that didn’t empower women.  Undeterred, she set off to achieve success in business and prove to her father she was every bit as capable as a son.  However, she paid a big price for her ambition.

Rita’s business took her away from her then very young daughter, who grew to be resentful and rebellious.  By the time Rita found success in business, she discovered she was failing as a parent.  It was a profoundly painful realization.  But she didn’t hide or quit.

Instead, she redirected the same drive which compelled her to prove her worth to her father and focused it on reorganizing her life and winning back the heart of her daughter.  This is where Rita discovered the teachings of Robert Kiyosaki and Rich Dad.

Realizing that she needed to focus on building businesses and generating income without trading time for dollars, Rita sold her business and began the hard process of rebuilding.  And a critical oversight in tax planning meant she had to start over from next to nothing.

This time, however, she maintained her focus on her family.  By the time we met Rita at the Rich Dad retreat, her daughter (now a young woman) was at her side and the affection between the two was apparent.  Rita has succeeded beyond her financial statement!

But, there more to the story…

When you listen to Rita explain all of this, pay careful attention to what she decided to do when she was between finding she’d lost everything and getting back to work to rebuild it all.  Not only was it a brave decision which reflected the new commitment to balance in her life, but it turned out to be what brought her to yet another watershed moment in her development as an investor and entrepreneur.

Rita had a profound experience while traveling in India, which brought purpose to her investing beyond herself.  But rather than tell you that part of her story, we encourage you to listen to this episode and hear it directly from Rita.

Then afterwards, think about the blessings in your own life and how, when you might be tempted to give up, you can find a higher purpose to inspire you to keep moving forward in the face of all obstacles.

Trump, Kiyosaki and Robbins LIVE in San Jose, California April 10-12, 2012

See Donald Trump, Robert Kiyosaki and Anthony Robbins LIVE and IN PERSON April 10-12, 2012 in San Jose, California!

If you’re reading this, then we’re guessing you care deeply about your personal success. You probably want more than you have and are looking for great ideas to help take you to the next level. Congratulations! You’re in the right place.

In every generation there are people who become living legends, icons in their field and powerful brands that millions of people recognize and identify with.

In personal development and motivation, no one is more recognized than Anthony Robbins. Millions of people around the world including actors, athletes, captains of industry, powerful politicians and ordinary people of all types have turned to Anthony Robbins to make life-changing breakthroughs in their personal achievement.

Robert Kiyosaki has impacted the lives of tens of millions of people through his teachings on personal finance, investing and entrepreneurship. His signature book, Rich Dad Poor Dad has been translated into dozens of languages and is the best-selling financial book in history.

And of course, Donald Trump is one of the best known real estate and media personalities on the planet. He almost needs no introduction.

What do these amazing achievers have in common and how can they help you?

We can’t presume to speak for any of them (that’s why you should go hear what have to say for yourself), but based on our conversations with Robert Kiyosaki, reading several of each guy’s books, and having seen them all speak several times, we have some ideas.

First, they want to make a difference in the world. Just like Steve Jobs told John Sculley when he was recruiting him away from Pepsi to join Apple, their businesses are bigger than just making money. They want to change the world.

Next, they know the power of ideas. Each one, in their own way, talks about how super-achievers think. And that the difference between being average and being exceptional starts with what’s happening inside your head. Read any of their books and it becomes very clear that they all believe in the power of the mind.

We also think they understand the power of being there. All of these guys, and especially Trump, can reach millions of people through media for a lot less hassle than flying into San Jose to talk to a few thousand people in a conference center. And none of them need the speakers fees. It’s obviously important to them to be there live.

We know that when you get people in a room to hear a live presentation, it is so much more powerful than watching the TV or listening to the radio. That’s why, even though we’re radio guys, we still do live events. It’s harder for us, but it’s more impactful for the audience.

After all, what is the value of just one good idea? Especially when you hear it in an environment where it can really sink in. We can’t promise this event will change your life. But it might. One thing’s for sure. If you’re NOT there, then nothing they say will make a difference for you.

It’s why we make it a point to attend live events and encourage all of our listeners to do the same. We don’t know how many more opportunities you’ll have in your life to see any or all of these three living legends speak live, but they’ll be in San Jose in April. We’re going to be there and we encourage you to be there too!

DONALD TRUMP – ANTHONY ROBBINS – ROBERT KIYOSAKI
LIVE IN SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA – APRIL 10-12, 2012

11/6/11: Multi-Family Market Musings plus a Different Look at the Rat Race

Who in their right mind would buy over $300 million of real estate in the middle of a giant recession?

And if that isn’t crazy enough, who would think that people actually need and love the rat race?

In this eclectic episode of The Real Estate Guys™ radio show, we talk to two very thought provoking guys who look at the world a little differently than your average Joe.

Behind the microphones to bare their brains for all the world to hear:

  • Your thoughtful host, Robert Helms
  • Bestselling author, real estate entrepreneur and Rich Dad real estate advisor to Robert Kiyosaki, Ken McElroy
  • Former White House director of economic policy, author and speaker, Todd Buchholz

First up in these serial interviews is our pal, Ken McElroy.  We love Ken because he’s both the real deal and a regular guy.

Obviously, anyone who has the chops to acquire $300 million of real estate in the midst of the worst financial meltdown in decades is probably worth listening to.  We’re very grateful that he’s willing to let us come hang out in his office and record our conversations to share with you!

HINT:  Spending time with uber successful people is a really great idea – especially when they’re willing to share their wisdom.

So grab your note pad and listen in as Ken McElroy muses on the multi-family market – where it is, where it’s headed and what he’s doing in it.  And even if you’re not ready to be a multi-family mogul, you’re sure to pick up great ideas that you can apply to your own situation.

Next, we bring you a sit down interview with former White House director of economic policy, managing director of the Tiger hedge fund, co-producer of the Tony Award-winning Broadway hit Jersey Boys, author and speaker, Todd Buchholz.  Yeah, he’s a real couch potato.

How, you may ask, do we always manage to find these amazing guests?  Let’s just say we leave no stone unturned in our quest to bring you thought provoking and useful perspectives!

Now Todd’s topic really has nothing to do with real estate, but a lot to do with people and what motivates them to work.  So if you’re a person and you’re working by desire or necessity, this interview has some great thoughts for you.

Todd’s written a book called Rush – Why You Need and Love The Rat Race.  Now, while many people become real estate investors so they can “get out of the rat race”, Todd’s premise is that people actually thrive not on relaxing, but in working towards worthwhile goals.  We’re guessing he’s a type A, but it’s just a theory. 😉

We found the interview very interesting because his book speaks to the deepest needs and motivations of people to work.  Obviously, to be happy, people need to organize their activities and finances to provide the environment which fulfill their needs and motivations.  The big question then is, what do you really, REALLY want?

So, as we approach the end of another year (can you believe it?!?), it’s a great time to contemplate your motivations, goals, plans and activities.  We think this interview will help stimulate those contemplations.

And if you want to take the whole process (warning – upcoming shameless self-promotion) to a much deeper and practical level,  you’ll want to attend our upcoming goal setting workshop.

For now, enjoy these stimulating conversations with two very bright and accomplished guys.

10/16/11: Teach Your Children Well – The Rules of Money Have Changed

There’s no doubt that the economic world is very different today than just a few years ago.  Many, especially Americans, hope the changes are temporary and things will get to “normal” pretty soon.

But what if the changes aren’t temporary?  What is we’re living in a new economic reality?

And for the younger set, if the economic landscape really is different, then do the old road maps apply…or are there new rules of the road?

That’s a lot to think about!

So for help, we flew out to sunny Scottsdale, Arizona to visit with a guy that thinks about this kind of stuff all the time.  He is the most prolific financial author in history, whose message of financial education, entrepreneurism and alternative investing has resonated with many millions of people all over the globe.

In the Rich Dad studios for a special “on location” episode of The Real Estate Guys™ radio show:

  •  Your prolific host, Robert Helms
  • Your amateur-lific co-host, Russell Gray
  • Author, entrepreneur and investor, Robert Kiyosaki

We’re guessing that if you’re reading this blog, you’re pretty serious about your financial education.  And if you put your education into effective action, you’re probably going to accumulate a bunch of wealth over your life time.  Good for you!

But if you fast forward a little but further, you may find yourself with grown kids and grandkids – and maybe more than that.  Are you excited about leaving them all your wealth?  If so, do you also have a plan for leaving them your financial education too?

What?  You hadn’t really thought about that?  Well, that’s what we’re here for!  While you’re out working hard to earn money, make good investments and build wealth for your family for generations to come, we’re traveling around the world seeking the best and brightest minds.  When we find someone like Robert Kiyosaki, we grab a microphone and start pulling great ideas out of his head to make them available to you.

So listen in and find out what our special guest Robert Kiyosaki has to say about what the rich teach their children,and that the poor and middle class do not.  Enjoy!
