Meet a Mompreneur!
This is Tammy Gruber – a great woman, an amazing mom, and a laser-focused business coach.   She just finished reading one of the best books on wealth and wealth creation ever written.  And now that she is a mompreneur – with a rock solid home-based business, she gets to apply what she is learning and finally jump out and win the money game.  I am so excited for Tammy and her family.  Here is a picture of Tammy and her son Daniel who happens to be one of the best BMX bike riders in his age group.

Enjoy this book review of Rich Dad/Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki.   Well done Tammy – keep up the good work!
Success to you!

Thanks, Drew!
So, if there is one book in the entire universe that everyone should read YESTERDAY, it’s Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert T Kiyosaki.  Not only should you read and re-read it a few times, it is your obligation as a parent, friend, sibling, etc… to share it with everyone you love.  As a parent, if you do not share this book with your children you may be setting them up for financial failure!!!  They will learn more about life and money in this book than they will learn in any school or college.  So how many of you are financially where you want to be on a scale of 1-10 ,10 being the highest?  Come on, be 100% honest here.  If you are in a JOB (just over broke), then you fit into the poor and middle class work-for-money category.  If you are at a 10 or above on your financial scale, then you are rich, and you have your money work for you!  Hmmmmm, could you have hit me over the head with that about 20 years ago????  Shoulda, coulda, woulda…. WILL!!!!  I guess the saying “When the teacher appears, the student is ready” applies here and now.
One A-HA moment from this book:  a JOB is really a short-term solution to a long-term problem.  Most continue working for two reasons:  self inflicted fear and ignorance.  Learn to USE your emotions to THINK, not THINK with your emotions.  Opportunities are ALWAYS in front of you.  Most people never see opportunities because they are too busy looking for money and security, ultimately at a mediocre level at best.  Unfortunately, they get what they think is money and security but they never see the opportunity that could land them MONEY and SECURITY!  The moment you see ONE opportunity you will see them for the rest of your life!
As Robert Kiyosaki states in his book “Rich people aquire assets. The poor people aquire liabilites, but think they are assets.”   HMMMMM… Use your emotions to THINK about that for a minute or two.
My biggest A-HA:  avoidance.  I have kept myself soooo busy trying to avoid the reality of fianancial issues.  Kiyosaki calls it the most common form of “laziness”.  Laziness by staying busy…. HMMMMM.  Not any more, baby!  My busy, lazy schedule is now busy – asset aquiring, liability reducing busy!!!!
Oh yeah, you HAVE TO have a bigger reason than your current reality.  If not, don’t waste your lazy, busy self.  Time to buy the book and READ IT!!!

The first thing that everyone is asked to do when they join a new company that is being built upon our network of people, is to ‘make a list’. Although it feels hard at first, it is really quite easy to make a list of family, friends and acquaintances from each of our circles of life in which we move and with whom we interact. The hard part is to not ‘make up the mind’ of these people for them; to not pre-judge them and take away an opportunity that they may actually be interested in.

I know a lot of people who, a few years back, were doing really well in the construction industry. Many of them were very busy and making great money. Not wealth money but they worked hard and were living a comfortable lifestyle. Most of them took great pride in proclaiming how busy they were. You see, in that industry, busy seems to be a symbol of how successful you are. Each time I'd run into a construction friend after not seeing them for months, I'd extend the normal salutation, "Hey, It's great to see you, how are you?" The response was always, "Phewww, BUSY!" Today, not so much...

As a small child you could flip instantly between laughter and tears. You’ve watched children do the same thing, jumping from tears to happiness. A toy, a bottle, or a video will distract them and, in an instant, they're happy. They know something you've forgotten. It's your best kept secret and you’ve hidden it so well, even you can’t find it! Take a deep breath while we journey back to your future to learn how to unleash your hidden power house and help fill your life with the abundance you so richly deserve.

    As the spouse of one and father of the other, I’ll let you guess who I’m talking about, this book has helped our lives deeper than just financialy. Financial issues are often a HUGE strain on relationships. You owe it to the relationships with yourself, your significant other and your family to read this book. C’mon, it’s one book – what’s the worst that can happen if you read it?
    There’s a good chance you’ll be passing it on to the rest of the family when you’ve finished – It’s that good!!!
