Is Rich Dad Poor Dad seminar a scam or a fraud? I know many Malaysians are a big fan of Robert Kiyosaki. In fact, come July 10th, 2012, this famous self-help author and motivational speaker Robert Toru Kiyosaki is coming to Malaysia again.
Coming back to the question, whether Rich Dad Poor Dad seminar a scam, why don’t you view these shocking three-part videos below. It is a seminar conducted by Robert Kiyosaki himself, but by a Kiyosaki-branded coach.
This expose news report by CBC’s Marketplace. Watch the aggressive ways of getting people to part their money to sign up for “advanced courses” that cost $12,000 to $45,000.
Personally, I also know there is one very popular seminar or workshop conducted in Kuala Lumpur, which also employs very aggressive or high pressure coaching tactics of getting attendees to sign up or push them to get more people to join the seminar. If you would to hesitate, they would use this usual what-is-holding-you-back ploy.
According to someone in Yahoo! Answers, he said that the seminars are tailored to get attendees to join expensive “courses” and he even mentioned that many of the so-called “satisfied customers” that testified how the courses made them rich were actually plants. He overheard them when he was on his way to the bathroom. These “paid customers” were talking among themselves in a room;saying the company paying them for testifying – even though they have never used the courses before.
Anyway, here are some quotes by Robert Kiyosaki:
“I have a problem with too much money. I can’t reinvest it fast enough, and because I reinvest it, more money comes in. Yes, the rich do get richer.”
“The poor, the unsuccessful, the unhappy, the unhealthy are the ones who use the word tomorrow the most”
“The only difference between a rich person and poor person is how they use their time”
“The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way.”
