Author - Robert T. Kiyosaki
Rich Dad Poor Dad was the first book I read after I graduated college in 2011. It completely changed the way I viewed money. The crux of the American Middle Classes financial issues lies within their inability to define investing. If we can't define investing, how can we begin building long term wealth? Investing doesn't have to be risky. Its not an all or nothing process. But here is the game plan that everyone needs to thrive, buy more assets than liabilities. The skill lies within one's ability to discover assets and eliminate liabilities. Listen I am not your financial adviser, but I certainly recommend this book if you want to understand what it means to build wealth.

It helps me stay safe.

So that being said, it's clear that real estate still plays a major role in the foundation of our economy.
