Robert Kiyosaki Cashflow Quandrant Concept
Employee and Self-Employed
When listening to Robert Kiyosaki he will point out how most people are employees and make high-taxed income without write-offs, but high tax brackets. It’s important to understand this because this is where most people are. He will later get into explaining self-employed and discussing how you get a few more write-offs, but if you listen to the Emyth by Michael Gerber, you will learn about how most self-employed are working in there business vs. on their business. This is a very important concept when it comes to how you spend, waste or invest your time daily. When you invest your time daily, you create important daily habits.
I am sharing the video above because I feel it’s very important for you to understand the ideas here that he discusses. You want to progress and evolve over the years through the quadrant. I see people who make decent income, but they are still employees, or self-employed working 70 hours a week. It would seem to me that the end goal is to have time and freedom, with the income being a bit more passive.
Business and Investing
Later you will learn about the parts in the quadrant on the right side, the passive income part where your money is working for you, your business is working for you, your time is working for you. It’s about the compounding of cashflow. You have to look through that lens, you have to not just chase people and money, but build habitual systems with a team so that your income is predictable from predictable analytics. It’s important to listen to other important books like the 4 hour work week, the emyth, the compound effect and the slight edge. These are a few of my favorite books on new paradigms, and including rich dad poor dad and cashflow quadrant that’s why I am blogging this post. Watching business grow based on pipelines, teams and systems is fun to watch. Watching that cashflow come in monthly and continue to grow.
This is why I focus on educating people to focus on building monthly cashflow, dependable income, get past paying the bills monthly, and move up the ladder to be able to enjoy life, and have time in life to be able learn about investing, networking, connecting with the right people and then looking for the right opportunities. I’ve invested years talking to many people about different business models, so I’ve learned a lot about what to do, but more so what not to do.
I’ve seen money come and go personally and with others. I saw people lose 100’s of homes. I should invested a lot more time building cashflow in real estate because that’s the foundation of it all. If it doesn’t have amazing cashflow, than why bother acquiring the property. Also cash on cash return is an interesting strategy. Your goal is to run cashflowing businesses, so that you’ll have enough cash to be able to buy more cashflowing businesses, or invest in notes or passive income. This is the beauty of compounding cashflow and focusing on this. What I like is I have been able to increase leads, and conversions and strategies with companies to compound the cashflow without it all being about money.
