Cashflow Quadrant by Robert Kiyosaki (Rich Dad Poor Dad). “The only reason I built businesses was so I could invest in the investments of the rich. The only reason you build a business is so that your business can buy your assets. Without my businesses, I could not afford to invest in the investments of the rich.” –Rich Dad
The cashflow quadrant by Robert Kiyosaki is such an eye-opener. I have applied the lessons that I learned from this concept in my life. While this blog post focuses on the cashflow quadrant topic from Rich Dad Poor Dad, the complete overview of the general concepts from Rich Dad Poor Dad summary are included in another blog post!
The Components of the Cashflow Quadrant by Robert Kiyosaki
Different Quadrants, Different Paths
Poor Dad’s Advice: “Go to school, get good grades, and then find a safe secure job with benefits.” Poor dad values job security and he holds on to the retirement plan offered by the government.
Rich Dad’s Advice: “Learn to build businesses and invest through your businesses.” Rich dad believes in the power of businesses for it will buy your assets with tax benefits.
Emotional Differences of the Quadrants
People in different quadrants have different emotions. These differences are crucial for they are triggers/reasons as to why these people fall under their respective quadrants. For example, someone who values job security belongs in the E quadrant, and so on.
Difference in Investment Capabilities
There is a big difference between an employee buying an investment and an affluent business owner buying an investment. Not all investments are available for employees. Meanwhile, there are investments that are available only for affluent business owners—investments that have the least risk with the highest returns. That’s why rich dad says that there’s such thing as ‘investments for the rich’—these people are also known as accredited investors.
Hence, the ultimate goal is to move from the left side of the quadrant to the right.
