Robert Kiyosaki

An investor, businessman and best-selling author.

Robert Kiyosaki is an investor, businessman and best-selling author. His book, Rich Dad Poor Dad, reveals what the rich teach their kids about money that the poor and middle class do not.

The main reason people struggle financially is because they spent years in school but learned nothing about money. The result is people learn to work for money...but never learn how to have money work for them, says Robert.

Born and raised in Hawaii, Robert is fourth-generation Japanese-American. He comes from a prominent family of educators. His father was the head of education for the State of Hawaii. After high school, Robert was educated in New York. Upon graduation, he joined the U.S. Marine Corps and went to Vietnam as an officer and a helicopter gunship pilot.

Returning from war, Robert went to work for the Xerox Corporation and in 1977 started a company that brought to market the first nylon and Velcro surfer wallets, which grew into a mega-million dollar worldwide product.

In 1985 Robert founded an international education company that taught business and investing to tens of thousands of students throughout the world. Retiring at the age of 47, Robert continued with his love of investing.

It was during his retirement, he wrote Rich Dad Poor Dad, the #1 New York Times bestseller. Robert followed with Rich Dad's CASHFLOW Quadrant and Rich Dad's Guide to Investing - all 3 books have been on the top 10 best-seller lists simultaneously on The Wall Street Journal, USA Today and The New York Times. In January 2001 Robert launched Rich Dad's Rich Kid Smart Kid.

Concerned about the growing gap between the haves and have nots Robert created the patented board game CASHFLOW® 101 to teach individuals the same financial strategies his Rich Dad spent years teaching him...the same financial strategies that allowed Robert to retire at the age of 47.

Although Robert's business is real estate, trading and building businesses, his true passion is teaching. He is a highly acclaimed speaker on financial education and his work has inspired audiences worldwide.

Robert has appeared on Oprah and other top national TV and radio shows. Robert has a profound message for those wanting to improve their financial lives. That message is: With every dollar in your hand, you have the power to choose to be rich, poor or middle class.
