Robert Kiyosaki was bornon 8 April 1947 in Hilo, Hawaii, United States, American, is Businessman, Motivational Speaker & Author. Robert Kiyosakiis a legendary figure who has changed the way how people look at money. An entrepreneur, investor, author and motivational speaker by profession, he audaciously is said to have commented that the reason why most of the people today are struggling financially is because despite years of formal education and training, they do not know anything about money. He is the author of the book, ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’, which ever since the time of its release, scaled to become the number one personal finance book of all time. The book draws a comparison between his biological dad who was educated but poor and fictitious dad who was a college dropout but the wealthiest man in Hawaii. Today, a stalwart in his own right, this tycoon entrepreneur however had the most humble beginning. Interestingly, the man who has become a multi-millionaire teaching people how to become rich was himself a failure at one point of time and had twice gone bankrupt with his business ventures. However, he did not succumb to the downfall and instead started teaching people how not to become poor and evade erroneous financial decisions.
