“ We are proud to say we reached our goal of acquiring passive income over expenses in our own personal lives. This was no easy task since we had LOTS of expenses and NO true assets. However, with the knowledge that the Rich Dad Team offers (which is massive), a little patience, persistence and "minding our business," we were able to achieve this in a few short years. ”

“ Eleven weeks ago, we signed up for Rich Dad Coaching. We wanted to exit the rat race. We wanted a better future for ourselves. We don’t have good credit. We don’t have a lot of money, but we now own our first investment property. This one good deal is worth a lifetime of work to us. ”
— Jason C.
“ It has been so much fun and brought us so much hope for the future. We have had some very tense moments, times of doubt but with the great coaching we have purchased rental properties, which are generating some real good positive cash flow. You have given us a whole new outlook on life and changed our context. We now have hope in the future. ”
— Bob and Donna M.
“ As a small child I had dreams that I was flying, flipping, and doing things that were impossible in a real life. I began to realize why the world I had been living in felt wrong to me. I began to realize that working hard is not smart, and that “lazy,” in the systematically productive sense, is what the rich are!
My goal is freedom, and I’m proud to call you my mentor and my teacher! ”
— Brian and Kristine B.
“ I am confident all I need to know is available through Rich Dad Coaching and the intellectual and emotional support and mentorship has been far beyond my expectations. I have participated in a so-called “real estate mentorship” before, and felt scammed it was a total waste of money. Rich Dad Coaching is the total opposite of my previous experience. Their coaches truly care about my success, and have the tools and patience to teach me this new way of being in relationship with money. ”
— Cheri P.
“ All the instructors and coaches have been amazing. They are extremely helpful and know how to teach the curriculum in a way that even I can understand.
I have developed leap and bounds from where I started, and I have you, and those that work for you, to thank. Hopefully the next time I’m writing you I will be saying thank you for changing my life and giving people like me an opportunity to become truly successful and financially free. ”
— Ryan B.
Kim and I had a lot of debt when we started our lives together. We estimate we had a total debt of about $400,000 and growing, as interest accrued. Much of this debt came from a business I lost early on in my career.
On top of that burden, we went through a horrific year in 1985 as we were building our next business. It is hard enough building a business when there is not much money coming in, but it was even harder with $400,000 of debt hanging around our necks. It was not a fun way to start a life together.
In 1984, we left Hawaii. Kim sold everything she had and I shut down my manufacturing business and we moved to California. We ran out of what little money we had in about three months. We found ourselves broke and, for a short period of time, homeless. It was the toughest time of our lives. To survive, we maxed out every credit card we could get our hands on, which meant debt was increasing again.
Fortunately, a friend let us live in an apartment in her garage as we rebuilt our lives. As those of you who have fallen behind know, it is hard to get ahead with debt hanging over your head. It was tough just buying a car, which we did at an extremely high interest rate. During this period of our lives, we worked at odd jobs just to cover our debts, to eat, and to keep a roof over our heads. We did this after we worked on our business. So, we know well what it’s like to be swimming in debt. We know what it’s like to struggle financially as well as endure the stress and anguish it causes.
On several occasions, we considered declaring bankruptcy, but we did not. We thought it best that we learn our lessons and pay back the money. For us, paying the money back was a wise decision because it made us stronger as a couple, smarter as investors and business people, and more confident about our future. By 1990, we were out of consumer debt and had paid back most of the $400,000 I owed my investors. Today we are richer, not just because we have a lot of money—but richer from the experience and the lessons we learned digging our way out of debt.
We got out of bad debt and you can too with our new Rich Dad QuickStart program.
