Getting into personal finance.
First, I recall my mother in tears at the table because she was worried about paying the bills. Ia��ll never forget how that made me feel. The next trigger a�� as an educator and an advocate for financial educationa��cameA� becauseA� while I was a student , I could never get an answer to my question a�?Why arena��t we taught anything about money in school?a�?.
More on the dads in your book. A�A� A�The poor dad I refer to in the book is my father, a highly educated man who knew little about money. The rich dad, is my friend Mikea��s father, a man who had little formal education but became one of the richest men in Hawaii. It is the story of growing up with two strong, but opposing, points of view a�� about money and investing.
Money or happiness.
Both! A rich life is always about more than money. But I believe that you can have both. For me, a part of happiness is freedom to do what I want, wherever I want, and with whom I want. Money makes this freedom possible. And while it many not be the most important thing in the world, you cana��t argue with the fact that money affects almost every thing that is important in life: healthcare, education, relationships, andA� quality of life.
