“I had two fathers. One was very rich, the other was very poor. The poor one got his college degree, finished his university and and got a doctor´s title. The rich one never finished grade 8. Both men were very successful in their careers and have worked very hard. One of them achieved a fair amount of wealth, while the other one was in financial trouble all the time. When they died, one left a fortune that his family could live from, while the other one left lots of bills”
Robert Kyosaki is an investor who grew up with two fathers: One encouraged him to go to school, get good grades, finish his university and get a good job. His other father encouraged him to go for what he wanted, study hard and learn from life and mistakes.
One said: Study hard to find a company that you can work in. The other one said: Study hard to find a company that you can buy. One saved every cent that he could get. The other one invested his savings. One thaught him to write an impressive CV to find a good job, the other one taught him to write a good businessplan to create jobs.
