Happy Today!

It’s been a few weeks since the final posting of lessons learned from Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. This book was a great introduction to the value of the right assets, corporations, taxes and minding your own business. These were strategies highlighted for readers to become more effective in managing their business.

The book which would follow Rich Dad, Poor Dad needed for be a book that expounded on the financial literacy theme. But it also needed to fit within the times we are living in. Thus it would make it more relevant to the state of the world we are in.

Introducing a new title for the Read With Me. September’s reading will be Unshakable by Tony Robbins.
