Today I had the opportunity to attend the National Achievers Congress in Sydney for the second time this week for a presentation with Mr.Rich Dad, Poor Dad ‘Robert Kiyosaki’ and his wife ‘Kim Kiyosaki’. These two are a force to be reckoned with, Kim Kiyosaki owns over 3000 apartments herself, Robert Kiyosaki is the author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad which is the #1 Selling Finance book of all time with a Net Worth of half a Billion Dollars you’d say that this power couple know a thing or two about what it takes to be successful.
I kept a close ear to the presentation and wrote down some great notes that I will most definitely be taking on board in my own adventures of Entrepreneurship. Read on for some stand out lines that I was able to capture in this amazing 3 hours of my day here in Sydney, Australia.
