Before You Quit Your Job
10 Real-Life Lessons Every Entrepreneur Should Know About Building a Multimillion-Dollar Business

by Robert T. Kiyosaki and Sharon L. Lechter
Narrated by Jim Ward and Deanna Hurst

      "Are people born entrepreneurs or are they trained to be entrepreneurs?" Kiyosaki asked his Rich Dad. "People can be trained to be either employees or entrepreneurs," Rich Dad replies. He continues to say, there are more employees than entrepreneurs because schools teach students to become employees, then gives a list of today's most popular entrepreneurs -- Edison, Ford, Gates, Dell, Turner - as entrepreneurs who did not finish school. This isn't to say education is a waste of time, but that our schools train, with the help of the parents, our youth to be employees instead of giving them the option between employee and entrepreneur. Rich Dad also tells his son employees seek security and entrepreneurs seek freedom. Rich Dad passes on his knowledge and positive outlook to Kiyosaki, who eventually earns his "freedom."

In turn, Robert Kiyosaki shares with us his Rich Dad's/Poor Dad's successes and failures along with his own experiences in the armed services and jobs that came later, selected to help gain his "freedom." One experience that stood out was his Rich Dad's advice to take a job as a salesman, so he did and hated it. Knowing the learning experience would benefit him later is what kept him going. (Who hasn't been there!)

Anyone looking for financial freedom should consider investing in the Rich Dad/Poor Dad series. The cost of the audio books is nothing compared to the priceless wisdom one will receive. Parents, it's never too late. Here is the perfect holiday gift.

Be sure to check out RICH DAD'S CLASSICS collection at Amazon, too. The audio book includes PDF of Reference Diagrams on CD 1
