Well, it’s been a long time since I blogged. Just as an FYI, it’s been busy with all of my projects, Gift Card is about to explode and has such a huge upside it’s mind-boggling. Adrienne put on a very successful financial education seminar in Vancouver on April 22, 2007. I’ve been learning lots about doing business, legal structures and methods to minimize tax, investment vehicles normally only available to the wealthy, and how to keep that wealth. Right now, I’d like to recommend a few books. First, read “Why We Want You to be Rich” by Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump. Second, read “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki. Third, read “Cash Flow Quadrant” by Robert Kiyosaki. Fourth, read “Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing” by Robert Kiyosaki. These books are available in almost any bookstore and should also be in your local library. Chances are good that you’ll borrow the book, read it, and then buy it for a reference. I can see the value in owning and rereading them. In particular, the “Guide to Investing” seems to have a wealth of information. I’ve read the other books and am about 1⁄4 through the “guide to investing”. This is all about learning how to think about wealth creation (business, investing etc), about what is possible, and how to build a personal strategy and plan to achieve that. Reading these books also legitimatized for me the message that Quest International “cbwealth.quest4u.cc” or “www.cbwealth.info” gives. That there are legitimate ways to get returns better than 10% (Kiyosaki talks about wealthy investors expecting to get between 50% and 500% yearly returns on their investments) and to protect your assets and minimize taxes. There are so many lessons in the book, and just listing them doesn’t do them justice.
