Did Robert Kiyosaki Grow Up Rich or Poor?
Robert Kiyosaki grew up in Hawaii, where his dad worked as a college professor. His dad made decent money, but his family wasn’t by any means considered wealthy. They were definitely around middle working class, neither extremely rich nor poor by any means. However, the whole divide between the rich and the poor was something he experienced firsthand when he became a merchant ship worker and got to travel around the world. He experienced different countries around the world and got to see both extreme poverty and extreme riches, and everything in between. He was by no means rich until he started his motivational speaking career throughout the 1990s, and his experiences of the rich vs. the poor around the world were the basis of how he got started in these ventures.

Robert Kiyosaki’s Philosophy
Kiyosaki’s philosophy also emphasizes the importance of investing in assets that generate passive income, such as real estate, stocks, and businesses. He encourages people to focus on acquiring assets that produce cash flow, rather than accumulating liabilities, such as credit card debt and expensive cars.
Another key aspect of Kiyosaki’s philosophy is the idea of leveraging. He believes that individuals should use other people’s money, time, and expertise to achieve their financial goals. For example, he advocates for using leverage to invest in real estate, where an individual can use other people’s money (i.e. a bank loan) to purchase a property and generate rental income.
