When I was seventeen I was merrily going about my life training to have a white picket fence lifestyle with my 2.3 children. Then a friend of my father introduced me to a book called Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. Now I'm well aware that there is a lot of controversy surrounding Kiyosaki, and my Chartered Accountant friend would question some of his accounting principles. However, he did open my eyes to the need for financial education at an early age, and that book Rich Dad, Poor Dad was written in such a simple and easy to understand way that even a foolish, seventeen year old could read it and get started on the path to financial success. In honour of Richard and his book that changed my life, my first ever blog post on Finding North is a clip from a presentation Richard made on the need for financial education. If you enjoy it, check out other videos and books from Robert Kiyosaki, and also consider enjoying my Facebook and Twitter feeds.
