Rich Dad Poor Dad | Winston’s Words of Wisdom

Reading Time: 2 minutes

I overheard Richard watching some YouTube videos of Robert Kiyosaki the other night, and I must admit, I like his style!

So much so that I looked up his seminal book ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’.

I won’t spoil the read for you, but it is a really interesting look at your values around money, work, wealth and questioning what you are taught.

Being a dog, I have no need for money, so the whole subject fascinates me. If you start picking at that thread about what money actually is, what value does it hold and why do we buy into such a strange system, it can take you to some interesting places… A very much red pill/blue pill decision if you ask me.

People like Robert see things more like I do, I have no intention to being a slave to wage (but that said, will happily do whatever I am told for a sausage… we all have our weaknesses), and rarely go along with conventional wisdom. That’s the reason I learnt to read in the first place! Books like this really do make you question everything and to my humble mind, that can only ever be a good thing.

Happy reading.

Here’s a description from the Goodreads website.

Rich Dad Poor Dad is Robert’s story of growing up with two dads — his real father and the father of his best friend, his “rich dad” — and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing. The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you.
