Born into a prominent family of educators, Robert Kiyosaki has risen to world prominence as an investor, businessman, and author. First residing in Hawaii, this fourth-generation Japanese-American received his college education in New York. Post-graduation, he joined the Marines, served in Vietnam and experienced a harrowing trial by fire as a helicopter gunship pilot during his tour there. After a successful post-war experience in business, Robert founded an international education company that teaches business and investing.
His first maxim is that: "The main reason people struggle financially is because they spent years in school but learned nothing about money. They never make money work for them." With insights like these, Kiyosaki was able to retire at the age of 47 and write his most famous work Rich Dad, Poor Dad. Afterward he followed up with many other titles under the Rich Dad banner. It is with this still ongoing series of books that Kiyosaki hopes to deliver a strong message on how everyone can improve their financial lives. The message is simple: "With every dollar in your hand, you have the power to choose to be rich, poor or middle class."
