"The MC Companies combined core strengths create value and is the foundation
for the company we built. For us, a culture of partnership isn't something we
hang on the wall. It's something we actually live minute-by-minute when we
bring on a new property management contract, run the numbers on an
apartment community we're thinking about buying or map out the strategic
direction for our company in the coming year. It's our mutual respect, our
respective talents and our combined actions that come into play and create our
commitment to Sharing the Good Life with our families, friends, investors,
employees and our family of community residents.
An excellent example of the helpful financial audios produced by Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad company, Garrett Sutton's can-do lesson is an excellent lesson on how to rise above debt. He provides a largely sympathetic lesson on why people dig such holes for themselves and why creditors let them. The information is nicely condensed and includes illustrations that people at all intellectual levels will connect with. The writing and the matter-of-fact reading are proactive--he doesn't celebrate or condemn anyone's goofy money decisions. Know yourself, get your attitudes and behavior under control, and then use the author's formulas and action steps to wrestle your credit report, account by account, back into something respectable.

In the "Myths and Magic" chapter, McElroy suggests that million dollar, multi-unit properties "are within your reach" (p.5) and that "there is little you can do to increase the value of [a single] property." (p.6) McElroy does several things wrong here: first, he does not take into account those who wish to owner-occupy their investment properties. It also contradicts "Cashflow Quadrant" in which Kiyosaki suggests starting with a smaller multi-tenant unit can be a good way of learning the "ropes" of business. McElroy also uses his own example of how investors line up to make deals with him and his partners and how he owns 10 percent of a multi-million dollar project in which he put none of his own funds. This brings me to my second point, which is the other weakness of the "Myths and Magic" section, McElroy fails to elaborate on HOW to put investing teams together in order to acquire financing on these types of deals.Read more ›
