    My Daddy taught me a very important thing when i was growing up.

    He told me that he wouldn't get in the way of anything i wanted to do (so long as it was legal off course [lol]).

    But he did say that the only thing he would veto was me working for people who were stupid, ignorant, obnoxious and poor.

    So when i got old enough to make my own decisions i decided to only seek to work for people who were smart, decent, descisive and rich.

    And i have been working around millionaires ever since.

    So don't send your kids out to work with morons. Whether they are mechanics, bankers or entrepreneurs - MATTERS NOT.

    What does matter is that they are working around millionaires.

    Seek out the smart guys with the money for your kids to start work for.

    Then use all their ideas to build your independent successful business.

    best,

    Rudy

    but being around smart, rich and focused people all the time, sets your mindset to theirs.
    you will learn a lot of stuff from them and it gives more motivation

    it will rub off on you. making you more likely to succeed and become a milionaire to.
    to become rich and succesfull you need a specific mindset and determination, without it, you`ll be lost!
    no matter how smart you are, or what great ideas you might have, without this you will never make it.

    Why the fuck does everyone have to mention "Rich dad, Poor dad" when there's a discussion about entrepreneurs or business or money??

    It's not like it has all the necessary knowledge or secret of how to get rich quick.
    It's a stupid basic book with information in it that i've learned at school when i was 15 years old.

    It's sooo anoying.

    rofl this one was funny , i agree with certain thing the op said , but rich people got some bad habit too, they can be selfish etc etc. Id say stay with the smart , not the bulb head , but the smart guy who dont show he is.

    Maybe you should try adding something of value to this thread and not whine about things that annoy you.

    Read: "How to Win Friends & Influence People" by Dale Carnegie for more ideas on this subject. :)

    My first question is...what the fuck's the difference? You clearly have a negative mindset, good luck!

    The book itself, I've never read it. Some day I may, as it is on my reading list. Frankly, if it's something that may help someone get into the right mindset...then it's a positive attribute to their development. With that said, I prefer the classics by Allen, Hill, Clason, Haanel, Holmes, ...etc.

    To the OP, great thread!

    I have read the Poor Dad / Rich Dad and its really only about how one Dad has a different perception of creating wealth than the other.

    Successful Dad concentrated on owning land, where, Less Successful Dad concentrated on being the best he could as a career man.

    Suffice to say, the successful Dad made more money and when the less successful Dad's career came to and end - so to did his income.

    In other words Dad A concentrated on creating wealth generating assets, where Dad B concentrated on earning a nice little income and paying the bills.

    Having said that, i do know of quite a few 7figure earning executives who are much wealthier than some of the property investors out there. lol

    And no, my experience doesn't come from this book.

    best,

    Rudy
