What does Veeky Forums think about Robert Kiyosaki's "Rich Dad" company, books, and classes?

be me
typical juco dropout
read rich dad poor dad
read about 100 other personal finance books
take $500 or so seminar
pretty much intro to more expensive classes and trying hard to upsell
salesmancheckingin.jog
i try and see passed the bullshit but get sold but also,
poorfag
take advise on fixing credit and fixit debt to income ratio
mfw i save thousands a year in interest now

So, I'm about to be bad debt free and highly considering paying 5-6k each for 2 investment classes. Still undecided wich 2 but 1 will be real estate related.

So, anyone taken any of these classes or studied any materials from this company?

OP it sounds like you're dealing with some serious action paralysis. Are you working now?

I'm a full believer of doing plenty of reading and attending educational seminars but I feel like you're getting a full dicking from these marketing guys

There are hundreds of personal finance bloggers and related communities publishing all kinds of great content all for free and in higher quality. You most definitely don't need to pay exorbitant fees or leave your bedroom to build your financial knowledge.

http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/2012/01/13/the-shockingly-simple-math-behind-early-retirement/ is where most people start their journey
http://jlcollinsnh.com/stock-series/ is excellent for beginner investors

reddit communities with great sidebar links:

It baffles me how anybody would even consider paying for that bullshit.

It's a good intro to self help/not being a wage cuck your whole life. 4 hour work week is great also. Only people who feel otherwise are shit posting from their cubicles.

Well, i made a deal with my wife. Pay off bad debt then do wtf ever i want.

I've worked overtime since high school only to learn that hard work is for suckers and smart work is fun...

I should be on dissability and only have max 10-20 years of useful worklife left unless i want to sit at a desk.

Heavy equipment operator 50+ hours a week, + part time for a buddy. + trying to start a small business with near 0 capitol. +/- 70k between my wife and i.

We own 5 shit old model cars.

The bank actually owns hers.

I have a shitty rental house and feel bad for being a slumlord.

Most of our finances are ties up paying for past mistakes and outrageous hospital bills. But in april of 2018 or before. God willing the only bills i have are living expenses.

Trying to descide if investment classes and software / network of like minded people is worth the 12k or if i should down payment on a 3rd house that isn't a cuckshed.

And how long will it take you to pay off the houses?

Just give up now man, your idea of finances are fucked.

The reason this guy is so successful is because his book addresses toxic consumerism, i.e. putting money in income producing assets instead of having it sit or spent on bullshit.

Other than that, the book is a meme and there are many better ones. Of course, for most people who read these types of books it should be common knowledge.

I try to stay away from people who made a living marketing/writing books as their advice is just marketing their services and giving generalist advice that may make you feel good but not offer much guidance on how to actually get rich.

almost all the best knowledge is free. i know this sounds like some retarded platitude, but it really is the truth. the only professional course that i actually stand behind is the dale carnegie course. changed my life. take it if you can. they only run from 1-2k.

Not trollposting.

Unintentionally shitposting maybe.

All the personal finance stuff i study seem to be conflicting each other.

I'm not great with numbers but I do understand the if i can make $13k and have a good time then 12k is fine.

I just dont want to fuckup and loose my savings like i did when i started my last business.

Time is far more valuable than money. Do you enjoy working 70 hours a week?
Pay off debt
Sell at least 3 of your cars
Get a reliable non-shit vehicle
Sell your rental house
Take all the money from selling things and put it in the bank
Take your 12k and put that in the bank
Don't start any more businesses
Don't attempt investing

No offense, but I don't think you're savvy enough to attempt any of the financial ventures you're considering. If you're willing to fork out 12k for a fucking Rich Dad class maybe you should invest in furthering your education related to the "heavy equipment operator industry" that you are already in so that maybe one day you can get a position where you will sit at a desk.

How u figure? Paying off all my shit.

<debt free by april 2018 at this rste
mfw 32, own 2 houses, 5 cars, debt free...?

Or - in debt i can safely pay with job income if need be but also hopefully playing real estate tycoon on the side. And any and all monies from part time small business ventures are reinvest until catastrophic loss or lift off...

Well, I know I'm not the brightest and a bit of an autist.

Fortunately i've played the "everyone loves anon" card all my life. Have a wide range of very intelligent friends in varios fields. Small town with several larger ones nearby. Plethora of childhood friends i would trust with my life. But all of then want to be wagecucks until they die. That would be fine with me but the more i learn about our country's financial situation the more i am terribly affraid for all of us. I fear that all of my friends will save money and invest into a 401k until the next great recession/deoression. I refuse to stand by and just watch it happen.

I have quite a bit of knowledge in the oil and mining industries and access to litterally millions in low interest loans if i can start something small, build a trustworthy team, and make the numbers work.

I can and am starting businesses until one takes off and pouring my heart/soul/wallet into it and praying for the best.

I'd just rather have another source of income such as real estate or a seperste business should one cave some day. If my friends all choose to be wagecucks at least i can take care of some of them.

I have a lot more fun and learn more in classes and being around like minded people. I dont want v&. And I believe in paying a fair price for anything of value. If i spend 12k and lose my ass well then, lesson learned. If i spend 12k and make 13k then meh, had fun. May go back and take another. If I soend 12k and make several mill... whats the ROI on that? a bunch.

This is alot of risk you're planning to take on man, at least pay the debts off first and make sure you have a bit of a safety net for you+the wife(5-10k), you need to try to get in a better position before going on a venture like this. And read books related to the industry, take 12k on an investing class from Robert Kiwasaki is a load of shit. Take one from someone reputable in investing if you're going to take one

This is the classic "flake" deal presentation in the oil business. Usually offered to you by a landman or landwoman. They are so gullible.

If you have access to millions of dollars of loans, you should be getting PAID to produce businesses, not working for free.

@w8t4u
it only made me frustrated and bored. the writer clearly takes the reader for a fool.

there was not a shred of useful realization i gained from that shit book. but the frustration lead to learning some useful concrete stuff in the end.

if you take a look at the actual advice about how to get money is like this:
1) make an info product get passive income (like that fucking book that has no point whatsoever)
2) flip real estate (like it's so easy to do and any wagecuck can do it no capital required right?)
3) invest in penny stocks (which are a gamble high risk high volatility low volume, require both luck and expertise to even hope for some gains)

it's total garbage imo.
