This book was my introduction to Robert Kiyosaki and one that I've read several times over. Here's why: Robert Kiyosaki doesn't say he's never been INVOLVED with networking, he has. What he says is he didn't make his fortune from network marketing. There's a big difference. Remember that when reading other reviews. Robert explains to the reader how his opinion of networkin ...more

This book is all about "networks." Think about it: Goodreads is a form of networking, FB, Twitter, etc. are forms of networking. The Business School can be summed up like this: the rich build networks; everyone else is trained to look for work.

این کتاب رو به علاقمند به حوزه ی کسب و کار خصوصا فعالان و علاقمندان به بازاریابی شبکه ای توصیه می کنم.
آقای کیوساکی در مقدمه کتاب هم ذکر کرده که انگیزه اش از نوشتن این کتاب پاسخ دادن به سوال خیلی هاست که درباره بازاریابی شبکه ای از ایشان می پرسیدند.

After finishing Kiyosaki's "Rich Dad Poor Dad" I was thrilled to discover this book, which is his professional opinion and take on the network marketing industry. I own a health and wellness consulting business, and partner with a company called Nikken, the world's largest research and development company of safe, highly effective natural health products - and I have come to realize that Nikken has very good reasons for organizing this company with a networking structure. Nikken is one of the qu ...more

Robert Kiyosaki has always advocated people to be financially free. In this book he shows one way of how - by joining a part time network marketing business.

This book gives the true spirit of Network Marketing. It is a must read for newcomers in this industry. It will help the newcomers to get out of the wrong concept people has about this industry. It will also help them to maintain a posture while talking to people and manage rejections efficiently.

I read this book in just 2 hours.
This is called fast pacing narration in the genre of management and finance.
It's a nice read, Robert, the author has written down many things that are useful in terms of your profession and the business you're going to do.
This book focuses on many topics, and it's a better one than that of RDPD by him.
Apart from this, it needs no more details review.

Definitely good advice on choosing a network marketing company to work with, and it made me rethink my own strategy for choosing one to get involved with.

A couple of days ago two of my friends from different NM companies introduced me to the idea of Network marketing. One of them was from Ebiz, the other from Sarso. The Sarso guy was much more open and informative, while the Ebiz guy was hardly revealing anything, but simply was giving their sales pitch to get me interested to attend their meeting.
Meanwhile, I started researching about Multilevel marketing aka Network Marketing and stumbled upon this book. While this book paints highly optimistic

Mình chưa đọc hết cuốn sách này nhưng mình nghĩ nó k phù hợp với mình, mình muốn đầu tư và có lẽ tập 5 sẽ giúp ích cho mình nhiều hơn. Tuy nhiên mình vẫn cho 4 sao vì những trang đầu cuốn sách có một sức hút kì diệu, nó đặt ra một câu hỏi: tại sao mọi người chỉ gắng học tập để ra có một công việc ổn định mà không nghĩ đến việc độc lập tài chính, làm những gì mình thích? Có lẽ trường học không dạy bạn những thứ này hoặc bạn không đủ dũng cảm để đương đầu với những thách thức trong cuộc sống. Mình ...more

Saya awalnya kurang tertarik baca bukunya Robert Kiyosaki. Selain karena cover bukunya yang jadul dan membosankan, pas diintip juga kata-katanya baku sangat. Tapi entah kenapa, saya tertarik baca bukunya gegara baca ebook self motivation tentang bisnis dari Tung Desem Waringin, dan disitu beliau beberapa kali menyebutkan nama Robert Kiyosaki plus memasukkan beberapa intisari bukunya.

Karena penasaran saya coba cari-cari bukunya di rak lemari, dan ternyata ada tiga. Rich Dad's Guide to Investing,

I have to honestly say that I found this book... enlightening, to say the least.

This book mainly talks about network marketing, any why it may or may not be for you. It talks about the power of utilizing networks (i.e. Metcalf's Law). Kiyosaki also mentions other ways one could get rich and compares them to network marketing.

As someone who has tried network marketing in the past (and failed), it gives me new appreciation for this kind of business. A lot of factors are needed when doing this kind

This had great ideas for people who want to create passive income. Even if you don't agree with every concept, it gives excellent advise on some of the how to's of thinking bigger than owning your own business.

str. 38- obogatiš lahko tako, da si cenen in pohlepen. Obogatiš lahko tudi tako, da si bogat in velikodušen. Metoda, ki jo izbereš, bo metoda, ki se najbolj ujema s ključnimi vrednotami, ki se nahajajo v tebi.

Str. 65- razlog, da večina ljudi nikoli ne najde bogate osebe v sebi, je zato, ker revna oseba še vedno misli, da je slabo delati napake.

Str. 103- najuspešnejši ljudje na svetu so največkrat zavrnjeni ljudje na svetu.

Title says it all, doesn't it? But you'd be suprised what the topic is. If you don't know anything about MLM then you need to investigate. It's one of the most ethical (because of its design), profitable types of businesses going. MLM's have really overcome some bad press and its going public. Lots of companies are using the method to promote. Big companies not just fly-by-night. One of the streams of income we have is an MLM called Usana, Inc. which creates some of the best health products goin ...more

A good and easy to read book. Really gives you a clearer beginners understanding on the industry that is network marketing and a good idea of what to expect as a start. However it fails to mention his own story on network marketing, which was a total failure. And also fails to actually help get started with a good foot if you happen to be interested in the idea.
It is just an informative book from someone outside the industry, which will open your eyes to the industry or let you know its legitima

I have really enjoyed reading this book.
Because i really value the opinion of Kiyosaki when it regards to building an asset for passive income,
and because he didn't achieved his wealth through this kind of business i hold his opinion as objective and unbribed.
So, if you have doubts about joining network marketing, or if you KNOW it doesn't suit you, but truly established this decision based on rumors and gut feelings. Do yourself a favor and read this book a head, and maybe you will discover

After "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" which I read a long time back, I was thrilled to get this book to read. One of the best books written on financial well being. The contents may look to be only for network marketing professionals, but dig a little bit deeper and the book starts to make sense for anyone who wants to be financially independent. One caution though, please have an open mind before you lay your hand on this book. This would be a life changing experience. I would highly recommend this book. ...more

Un bel libro su un tema - il network marketing - che, nella comune opinione, viene spesso percepito come una sorta di truffa stile "catena di Sant'Antonio".

Nel descrivere l'attività di network marketing, Kiyosaki traccia quelli che secondo lui (e anche secondo me) sono le caratteristiche di un buon imprenditore:
1) saper vendere
2) saper fare squadra, circondarsi di persone migliori di lui, almeno sotto il profilo delle conoscenze tecniche
3) capacità di leadership
4) aiutare, con i propri prodotti
