was born on April 8, 1947 in Hawaii. His father was an
educator who lived on a salary, and is the one referred to as
the 'poor dad' in Kiyosaki's books. As an employee and highly
educated, his father was limited by his salary and often
complained of not having enough money. The 'rich dad' was the
father of one of Robert Kiyosaki's friends. This dad was a
school drop-out, but a business owner. Although he wasn't
wealthy, he was able to afford the things he wanted. The
contrast between these two dads caught Kiyosaki's imagination
and taught him to not give up on his dreams or close his mind
to achieving financial freedom.
Robert Kiyosaki went on
to serve in the military during the Vietnam War and then
became a copy machine salesman after his discharge. In 1977,
Kiyosaki launched his first start-up company. Over the years
he tried various business ventures and invested in real estate.
By the time he was 47, he had become wealthy enough to retire.
His retirement was short lived however. After a few years, he
began his Cashflow Technologies company that went on to become
a huge success with the Cashflow and Rich Dad brands that made
Robert Kiyosaki a household name.
