I recently saw this posted thanks to Art Jonak:
Beware of This Scam:
It’s a program where you work your tail off for someone else for 40 hours a week, for 40 years, get a $40 gold watch and then try to live on 40% of what you couldn’t live on while you were working 40 hours a week. (aka “a job”). It has been known to leave people Just Over Broke after participating for 40 or more years, yet millions of people fall for it everyday.
Rich Dad Scam #2: Get a Job
Robert Kiyosaki recently released his “8 Financial Scams Disguised As Wisdom” and one of the scams he talks about is “Get A Job”. In the article, he says “My rich dad understood that the sentiment, “Get a job,” was a scam. Rather than get a job, he made jobs. Rather than work for someone else, he worked for himself. Rather than pay high taxes, he used the tax code to get rich. The reason Get a Job is a Rich Dad Scam is because it makes you poorer, especially if you have a high paying job, because you pay the most in taxes.”
“A job is the highest risk profession you can have.” ~Tom Wheelwright, CPA & Rich Dad Advisor
School Didn’t Talk About Becoming An Entrepreneur
As I read the funny but true “Scam Alert” post, and studied Robert Kiyosaki’s article on the “8 Financial Scams”, I realized that everything they’re saying is true today. School = success is Rich Dad’s Scam #1. In America, we all “go to school” to “get a safe, secure, job”, however, in the 21st century, the job is far from being safe and secure.
“The future belongs to the risk takers, not the security seekers. The more you seek security, the less of it you will have, and the more you pursue opportunity, the more security you will achieve.” –Brian Tracy
Trust Your Intuition (“Gut” Feelings)
I started to feel this in 1995 as I spent all my time at my job, and neglected time with my son. I started to feel like I was doing the wrong thing, and if I didn’t make a change, I would lose my relationship with my son. I am so grateful I found a home business which taught me how to become an entrepreneur. It is truly the “Business of the 21st Century”, as Robert Kiyosaki says, and it teaches anyone who is willing to learn, and willing to work, how to become a global entrepreneur.
