Robert Kiyoski, the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, USA Today’s No. 1 Money Book and a runaway international bestseller, is also an investor, entrepreneur and educator. His revolutionary ideas about money and investment challenge conventional wisdom, changing the way millions of people invest, save and think about their money. Kiyosaki’s message to the world is that the “conventional advice” —get a good job, work hard, save money, get out of debt, invest long term, and diversify—is all flawed.

Rich Dad Poor Dad is the longest running bestseller on all four lists that report to Publisher’s Weekly: The New York Times, Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, and USA Today. It also held a top spot on the New York Times list for over five years running. The book has been translated into 45 languages and is available in 90 countries, having sold over 25 million copies worldwide. There are now 12 books in the Rich Dad series, including Rich Dad’s CASHFLOW Quadrant and Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing. Kiyosaki writes a column titled “Why the Rich are Getting Richer” for Yahoo! Finance and a column titled “Rich Returns” for Entrepreneur magazine.

Born and raised in Hawaii, Robert Kiyosaki is fourth-generation Japanese American. He graduated from college in New York, joining the Marine Corps as an officer and gunship pilot in the Vietnam War. He was awarded the Air Medal for bravery during his service. After the war he took a sales job at Xerox Corporation, and in 1977 he started a company that took the first nylon-and-Velcro “Surfer’s Wallet” to market. In 1985 he founded an international educational company, to teach business and investing to tens of thousands of students across the world.

Prior to writing Rich Dad Poor Dad, Kiyosaki created an educational board game called “CASHFLOW® 101” to help teach the financial and investment strategies of his rich father. There are now more than 1,600 CASHFLOW Clubs—game groups which are unaffiliated with the Rich Dad Company—throughout the world. In 1994, Kiyosaki sold his company and, through good investments, was able to retire at the age of 47.

Keynote Speech


Robert Kiyosaki, best known for his bestselling book Rich Dad Poor Dad, gives a 60-minute talk about how to be smarter with your finances.

He begins with an explanation of the reasoning behind writing Rich Dad Poor Dad. “Rich Dad Poor Dad is a true story, based on my two dads. My real dad was the head of education for the state of Hawai’i, very smart man. He was the boss and things like that, when I was in school. My Rich Dad was my best friend’s father, who was a man who didn’t finish school. He dropped out of school at age 13, but ultimately became one of the richest men in the state of Hawai’i. He was self-made, did it all on his own. So the book is a story of what two fathers tell their two sons about the subject of money.”

“We learn very little to nothing about the subject of money in school. Oftentimes what we learn about money is handed down from parent to child. Those are the ideas that we have, relative to the subject of money.”

    Rich Dad′s CASHFLOW Quadrant: Rich Dad′s Guide to Financial Freedom
    Are you tired of living paycheck to paycheck?

    In the world of money there are two mindsets, those that see scarcity and need security, and those who see abundance and thrive on financial adventure – the mindset of the employee or self-employed, and the mindset of the business owner or professional investor.

    In The CASHFLOW Quadrant, the sequel to Robert Kiyosaki’s smash hit, Rich Dad Poor Dad, you learn how the role you play in the world of money affects your ability to become financially free.

    There are four types of people who make up the world of business: employees, self-employed, business owners, and investors; but it’s only the business owners and the investors who can create great wealth by accelerating their cash flow through assets.

    A Wall Street Journal Bestseller, Rich Dad’s CASHFLOW Quadrant is perfect for employees or self-employed individuals interested in finding new ways to generate cash flow. If you’re already a business owner or real estate investor, this book also delivers tools for even greater success.
