Best known as the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad—the #1 personal finance book of all time—Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. He is an entrepreneur, educator, and investor who believes the world needs more entrepreneurs who will create jobs.
With perspectives on money and investing that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned an international reputation for straight talk, irreverence, and courage and has become a passionate and outspoken advocate for financial education.
Robert and Kim Kiyosaki, both authors, are founders of The Rich Dad Company, a financial education company, and creators of the CASHFLOW games.
Robert has been heralded as a visionary who has a gift for simplifying complex concepts—ideas related to money, investing, finance, and economics—and has shared his personal journey to financial freedom in ways that resonate with audiences of all ages and backgrounds. His core principles and messages—like “Your house is not an asset” and “Invest for cash flow” and ”savers are losers”—have ignited a firestorm of criticism and ridicule… only to have played out on the world economic stage over the past decade in ways that were both unsettling and prophetic.
His point of view is that ‘old’ advice—go to college, get a good job, save money, get out of debt, invest for the long term, and diversify—has become obsolete advice in today’s fast-paced Information Age. His Rich Dad philosophies and messages challenge the status quo and his teachings encourage people to take initiative to become financially educated and play an active role in investing for the future.
The author of 29 books, Robert has been a featured guest with media outlets in every corner of the world—from FOX News, CNN, the BBC, Real Vision, Yahoo! Finance, Al Jazeera, GBTV and PBS to Larry King Live, Oprah, Peoples Daily, Sydney Morning Herald, The Doctors, The Straits Times, Bloomberg, NPR, USA TODAY, and hundreds of others—and his books have topped international bestsellers lists for more than two decade. He continues to teach and inspire audiences around the world.
Robert’s newest books—Who Stole My Pension? (co-authored with former SEC attorney and pension-fraud whistleblower Edward Siedle) and FAKE: Fake Money, Fake Teachers, Fake Assets—are sobering reminders of the importance and power of real financial education. In 2021 the countdown to the 25th Anniversary of the 1997 release of Rich Dad Poor Dad will begin. That book and its messages, viewed around the world as a classic in the personal finance arena, have stood the test of time and continue to resonate with audiences of all ages around the world.
Robert has also co-authored two books with Donald Trump, prior to his successful bid for the White House and election as President of the United States.
