Key Quotes:

  •         “I grew up in an environment understanding the value of assets and expected that everybody else did too…”
  •         “Why not? Why not do something different? Why not take that path less traveled? And that’s still my philosophy today, and that’s, I think ties in with true entrepreneurs. Why not solve a problem or serve a need? Why not do something, someone else hasn’t done? And that’s really still my mantra today…”
  •         “I volunteered to help Robert [Kiyosaki] commercialize it because it agreed with my philosophy of investing your time and buying, building, creating assets, as opposed to chasing money, time for money…”
  •         “I said maybe we should write a brochure that explains the philosophy that people will then be convinced to spend the $200, and that’s when he asked me to become his partner, and we were equal partners in the company for 10 years, and we wrote 15 books together. But that little brochure that kind of started it all was named Rich Dad, Poor Dad…”
  •         “Sometimes you have to close one door for other doors of opportunity to open…”
  •         “Every night growing up, my dad would ask me, Sharon, have you added value to someone’s life today? and he’s been gone 16 years, but I still ask myself that every single night…”
  •         “[My parents] were a little surprised when I left public accounting, but they were never judgmental. They were always there to support me and basically their message to me growing up as you can do or be anything you want to, if you just put enough effort and energy into it…”
  •         “[Plan B] it’s really not attracting the negative. It’s actually creating an opportunity for maintaining the relationship, no matter what happens with the business…”
  •         “I knew I wanted something better. I knew I wanted to elevate myself, and I knew that I could not do that just simply by myself. I had to get the education. I had to meet the right people. I had to find the right mentor…”
  •         “When I start working with people, when I write books is to address that power of association and that fear and turn that fear into energy, into faith for yourself…”
  •         “Ask yourself, where do you need help? Passion, talent, association action, faith, and start focusing on how you can take that next level…”
  •         “You want to make sure you have the expertise, but you can own a business, not be in the business…”
  •         “When you find yourself worrying about something, just catch yourself and say, instead of focusing on what I don’t want to have happen, let’s focus on what I do want to have happen…”
