Rich Dad Poor Dad
« on: May 07, 2004, 02:18:29 am »
Rich Dad Poor Dad is a good book on the topic of personal finance...... it teaches people on how money can work for you... instead of people working for money.....easy to read and open up peoples mind on the subject of money

"a must read for millionaires"....JP Morgan

"A starting point for anyone looking to gain control over their financial future"....USA Today

Highly Recommended ....a Must Read for Entreprenuer!

I agree with the quotes above BUT it must also be emphasized that the book is also for the
non-entrepreneurs or the COMMON TAO.

There are lots of books in the market like  ....  9 Steps to Financial Freedom by N. Orman, etc.

The difficulty lies in the sense that these books are based on US financial climate. A reference material which gives the Pinoy Financial Environs would be fitting.

It is really good that we have references but our financial climate MUST be properly explained. And the point of view must be from a neutral party, NOT from an underwriter, broker, banker, etc. in order for it to be an UNBIASED proposal.

I've read Rich Dad Poor Dad, it's 2nd and third book.  They are all good.

I wonder if there's similar book but in Philippine setting...

"e-myth revisited" is good stuff... for people who has business and for those planning to start one....
"selling the invisible" i haven't read it yet

 "books for less" they sell used books with reasonable price and a good selection

i have a friend who owned a small bookstore in makati and he carries "rich dad poor dad" and "cashflow quadrant" paperback edition for only P379 brand new ... just in case if your looking for that book

the richdad financial literacy program i mention about before cost about $200 or less

hey elijah which part of the RDPD book impact you the most?

I do agree with MDRT. RDPD is really a great book to read. Currently I am reading Part II (Cashflow Quadrant). I find the series enlightening and inspiring to do.

I say, Why don't we invite the author, Robert Kiyosaki? He would be able (hopefully) to put RDPD in a Philippine context.

Cashflow 101
« Reply #9 on: May 17, 2004, 02:14:06 am »
Well, elijah... I recommend you to try the CASHFLOW 101 program. I attended the May 16 session and it tealy help me instilled the principals of Rich Dad Poor Dad in my mind. Hell, I dont mind to attend another session again. I met other aspired people like MDRT.

About having RK over here, thats too bad... If he gives a seminar here in the Philippines, he might have an audience that could fill the ARANETA COLISIUM. hehehe.

because of your posts I got really interested to read Rich dad Poor Dad
but medyo expensive yung hardbound, hut someone's selling me an audiobook worth P200
and an e-book for P75.
Will it be worth it to buy either of these or would it be much better if I'll have the actuall book?

do find a circle of friends that can lend you the book.  I got book 1 and 3 and borrow from a friend the book 2 which is cash flow, in return i lend him my books. Another borrow my book and when she got the cd of 1 & 2 she gave me a copy.  ;) i got them in CD now  :-X

We also play in the office. I will schedule the game and post here so those in Libis can join us.   E-mail me and i maybe very kind to give you copy.  who knows....  ::)

i would recommend the book instead...  you can find the book in national bookstore or power books... but they're normally out of stock...... i have a friend who has a small bookshop in makati ....just get the paperback edition of Rich dad Poor Dad.... less than P400 :)

I read both Kiyosaki book Rich Dad Poor Dad and Cashflow quadrant. Anyone who wants to be financially free should read these books to change their employment paradigm and start to go into business. I also attended Cashflow 101 early 2003,or was it 2002.  it was conducted by Mr Borromeo, he was one of the first in the Phils to attend Kiyosaki's talks in singapore. A good mentor to coach me in the game. Get out of the rat race now!!! :) goodluck
