BookReview: Rich Dad's Before You Quit Your Job: 10 Real-Life Lessons Every Entrepreneur Should Know About Building a Multimillion-Dollar Business
by Robert T. Kiyosaki, Sharon L. Lechter, Warner Business Books, September 14, 2005, 0446696374
The 10 lessons are: A successful business is created before there is a business [be prepared]; Learn how to turn bad luck into good luck [learn to fail]; Know the difference between your job and your work [a business is many jobs]; Success reveals your failures [communications and teams]; The process is more important than the goal [cashflow is king]; The best answers are found in your heart...not your head [clear mission]; the scope of the mission determines the product [solve a problem]; Design a business that can do something that no other business can do [clear advantage]; Don't fight for the bargain basement [choose your customers]; Know when to quit [you gotta wanna].
Kiyosaki gives good advice. However, it is like many books on being an entrepreneur. If I didn't want to be an entrepreneur, and I read this book, it wouldn't have changed my mind. I want to be an entrepreneur, and Kiyosaki explains why I want to, which doesn't really tell me anything. The rest is standard business stuff, which is better presented in Jim Collins' books.
