If you have been listening to typical financial planners over the last three years, then you were one of the millions that lost nearly $10 trillion! I don't know about you, but I don't like to lose money.
Obviously the review written just ahead of mine was by a financial planner. Financial planners are just like brokers, that is, they cause you to become broker with their advice. The best financial planner you will ever have is the one who looks back at you in the mirror. If you give up your investments to financial planners, advisors, brokers etc. you will end up a financial loser.
Robert Kiyosaki has once again written an excellent book with advice that really works. What these "investment people" always neglect to mention is that Kiyosaki's advice has been right on all along. He predicted the crash of 2000 in his earlier book Rich Dad's Guide To Investing. What were investment advisors, financial planners and brokers telling everybody to do? That's right "buy and hold", (more like buy and pray that your investments will someday get back to where they were 3-4 years ago) "diversify" (put your eggs in many baskets and have many baskets of crushed eggs), "dollar cost average" (more like average down) and so on.
If you had listened to Kiyosaki as I did and many others, you would have been out of risky stocks and had your money in other equities that provided huge returns.
Ifyou are a serious investor, then I highly recommend this book along with Rich Dad's Guide To Investing and Rich Dad's Prophecy. Kiyosaki and his Rich Dad have been right so far and I would bet on him continuing to be right again.
Of course you could listen to a financial planner, advisor or broker and end up broker and perhaps join others and lose another $10 trillion.... again with their "professional" advice.
Good book RTK. Keep em coming.
