Increase Your Financial IQ And Learn About Money

Global Financial IQWhat Is Your Financial IQ?

Do you know what your Financial IQ is?  I didn’t! 🙄  We took IQ (Intelligence Quotient) tests in school, however, we never took Financial IQ tests!  We didn’t get taught much about finances or money in school. 🙁

I was watching a Robert Kiyosaki seminar and he said “How much time do you spend studying money? If you want to increase the amount of money you make, you must increase your Financial IQ.”  Duh, Kellie 😯 I realized when he asked that question that I had spent only a little amount of time studying money and increasing my Financial IQ.  Robert Kiyosaki said “If you want to make a lot of money, you must spend a lot of time learning about money and how it works.” (paraphrasing his words)  Wow, that made so much sense to me!

The Financial Light Bulb Went On

Jim Rohn always said “Don’t ask that life get easier, ask that you get better“! A huge light bulb 😎  went on for me the day I heard Robert Kiyosaki ask that question.  I had studied nutrition and the physical body to be in great physical health; I had studied tons of personal growth to be a better person; I had studied spirituality to find I am a spiritual being having a human experience; I had studied business to become a better business person; I had studied communication skills to be a better communicator…..  However, I didn’t spend enough time to “master” money and raise my Financial IQ to the next level!!   😯

Learning About Money

One of my favorite financial gurus is Robert Kiyosaki, the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad.  I started to devour all of his books, CDs, DVD and seminars.  He taught me the New Rules Of Money and why being an employee would never lead to freedom.  He said you must learn to become a “B” (big business person) or an “I” (an investor) to truly have freedom.  Click on our blog posts on the New Rules of Money – Part I and Part II.

1971 Money Became A Currency For the USA

In 1971, Richard Nixon took us off the gold standard, which means the United States money was no longer backed by gold. Money was no longer money, we started creating a currency on paper.  Since 1971, the dollar has lost 95% of it’s value.   😯  Please watch Robert Kiyosaki’s video about the US currency.

Tony Robbins also created a video of with an “Economic Caution”.

Tony says “In every tragedy there is an opportunity.  Now is the time to figure out what the opportunities are and seize them.  This decade will be completely different than anything in history.”  And as Eric Hoffer said “In times of change the learners inherit the future, while the learned find themselves in a world that no longer exists“. We believe the greatest opportunities are available right now for those who are ready to learn and give it everything they got!  It is so much fun seeing the future! 😆

    Great message Kellie,
    Becoming “money” smart is one area I have yet to delve into as much as others. I’ve also heard that shifts are occurring which can have a huge impact on us financially. Good timing on this info!

    Aloha Val,
    I think most of us were not educated in money or finances much. I have been studying and am very interested in all the changes. It’s actually very fascinating! Thanks for your comments. Aloha 🙂

    So many times we leave our financial future to ‘the experts’ when in fact, no-one cares as much about our money as we do!

    And in this changing economy, what you don’t know can definitely hurt you.

    Thanks for the resources and the nudge, Kellie.
    I’m going to dig up my Kyosaki books and re-read them.

    Aloha Jacqui,
    You are so right on that point. I used to think I wasn’t smart enough to understand all the money talk and then I realized if I left it up to someone else, how much more do they know than I do? And you’re also correct on the caring part! It’s my responsibility to learn about money and finances. Thank goodness for Robert Kiyosaki! He talked a language I finally understood. Now it’s so interesting to me!
    Thank you for your great comments! Aloha 🙂

    hi kellie, i know you are a huge kiyosaki fan… i am definitely inspired to read more of his stuff after seeing how he’s impacted you!

    having a financial education is something that should be taught it school. i was taught to save save save… and as a result ended up with a pretty little sum when i was an adult but no knowledge on how to manage it. and as a result i mis-managed it, and can’t even tell you where it all went!

    thankfully in our MLM i’ve been exposed to people like you that have encouraged me to take ownership for my finances. but this is a great reminder that there’s much more to know!

    see ya kellie!

    Aloha Melissa,
    Yes, I am a huge Kiyosaki fan! He has been “right on” on all his predictions and what he says totally makes sense. Financial education is so important if we want to increase our income. Thanks for your comments! Aloha 🙂

    Hi Kellie,

    How are you ? 😉 its been a long while since I stopped by your blog. I’ve been re-reading some of my Robert Kiyosaki books as he also been such a great influence on me. I have also been neglecting my blog and decided to get back on track and my last post was also about Roberts views on Financial Intelligence, so I was pleasantly surprised to read your post, and could not agree with you more …thank goodness for Robert Kiyosaki lol! I am never disappointed when I stop by your blog as you never fail to impress and motivate me and you also seem to be on my wavelength so thank you Kellie 🙂 I’ll make sure I stop by more regularly, all the challenges and obstacles I’m facing lately, just make me more determined to not give in, and there is always something on your blog to lift my spirits, and to inspire and encourage me … Mahalo Kellie

  3. Robert Kiyosaki - New Rules Of Money For Home Based Network Marketing Business | Kellie Hosaka, Network Marketing Business Training For Residual Income Says:

    […] I was always encouraged to study personal development and to grow myself.  Jim Rohn always said “For Things To Change, I Have To Change. For Things To Get Better, I Had To Get Better.” I heard those words over and over….. One of the coaches who I have studied extensively in the Financial area is Robert Kiyosaki. He is the author of “Rich Dad, Poor Dad“.  He explains how there are 4 basic people in the world of business.  The Employee (E), the Small Business person (S), the Big Business person (B), and the Investor (I).  He taught me that the B & I’s were the ones who create jobs, therefore they are eligible for tax exemptions.  The E & S’s work hard for Earned Income which is taxed at the highest rate, verses the B & I’s work hard for Passive & Portfolio Income because it is either not taxed or is taxed at a very low rate.  Robert Kiyosaki taught me to become educated in Financial Literacy and to increase my Financial IQ.
