Robert Kiyosaki is a US citizen, born in Hawaii. He is said to have an estimated net worth of $80 million.
His first real job was at Xerox as a copier salesman. Later Mr Kiyosaki started working in Investments and then went on to write self-help books.
His first bestseller is 'Rich Dad, Poor Dad'. The book is an attempt to change the mindset of the average employee. Robert Kiyosaki talks about his "poor dad", his actual father, who was the Superintendent of the Hawaii State Department of Education but had very little real net worth, as well as his "rich dad" who was his best friend's father. According to Kiyosaki, his rich dad became very rich by investing his smaller earnings into income-producing investments, and became truly rich in so doing.
It’s not necessarily the business ventures or investments that have procured the majority of his wealth. It’s his mentality that has skyrocketed Robert Kiyosaki’s Net Worth to an all time high. The Rich Dad Poor Dad author's mentality has acted as the fuel which propels the vehicle (Business ventures and investments) to a resounding success story.
