Learning from The Rich Dad


The Rich Dad is in town and he wants to show you how to become rich like him. Robert Kiyosaki (the Rich Dad) is so rich he didn’t even have to come himself. Instead, his Rich Dada “Education Team” did all the teaching in a free two hour selling training session.

We showed up at the 12:30PM session because we knew it wouldn’t be as busy as the 6PM evening session. Richmond must have more retired people than I thought because the place was packed for an afternoon sessions. I’ve been to afternoon seminars for competing companies before and it was no where near this packed. Must be that Rich Dad branding (there’s a branding lesson you).

As expected, the training session is one big sales pitch for a three-day workshop on real estate investing. I can see why Rich Dad would be putting these workshops on now. With the amount sub prime loan defaults, now is as good time for the smart investors to go in and pick up all broken pieces.

The workshop cost $995 but if you sign up during the seminar, you can have it for only $495! Sounds like a good deal really. However, I still passed on it. The big thing I got out of the Rich Dad “training” session: You can make a lot of money putting on seminars!

Free Gift – How To Find Great Investments


As a thank you for sitting through a two hour sales pitches, everyone got a free Rich Dad audio CD on how to find great investments. They were lying on the table for anyone to grab so of course, I grabbed more than one. They told me one per person but then again, they also told me no pictures as well. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

If would like to grab my extra copy the Rich Dad’s audio CD so you can become rich, then reply to this post. I’ll pick a random winner Saturday. Good luck.

    I want to win that CD . . . i always catch half of his show on some random information . . . pretty interesting stuff to tell you the truth . . . i just want to see what all the hype’s about ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. My brother attended one of these same seminars in Phoenix, AZ yesterday! So these guys probably have multiple ‘teams’ of presenters putting these on nationwide.

      1. I just have a hard time believing that you really need to pay so much to get invaluable advice. All of this can easily be obtained online for free! The net is a wealth of free information

    2. Liviu Pantea says:

      I`d also like to win that CD since i`d never had the chance to see any of his presentations.

    3. Santosh P says:

      I want! I want! I want!!! So I am in ! I am in! I am in!

  2. Joey says:

    dont get the cd.. it’s stolen merchandise ๐Ÿ˜†

  3. Ohh! I’d love to win it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks John! ๐Ÿ™‚


  4. Yogesh says:

    If this isn’t another selling session then count me in!

  5. I will try it, you never know you just may pick something up out of it.

  6. Nick says:

    Doesn’t sound like the coolest prize ever given away on this site, but one of these days I’m going to win SOMETHING from John Chow dot Com!

    I want to be a rich commenter.

    Note to self: Adsense now offers direct deposit, build a widget that diverts adsense income directly into a stock investment account, which also makes buys/sells of pre-specified stocks when the amount in the account reaches a minimum level.

    Set it up so that it’s linked to a database that monitors how well others are doing in the market through their widgets. Have it make real time buy/sell orders to maximize revenue using data from this new web of widgets… No need to buy that uber expensive tracking software bankers use, a web of widgets would work too! John doe over there is making a killing this hour, align buy orders to mirror his for x amount of time.

    Call it.. I dunno.. the stock jock widget.

    put a rush on it! – so people don’t hurt themselves thinking they’re housing experts in 3 hours!

    /rant off. Instant knowledge isn’t instant, it’s earned through years of dedication, but I bet they didn’t tell you that right John?

    1. GemViper says:

      To be clear… that widget idea is a joke, it takes knowledge to make money in stocks too!

  9. Danny Tsang says:

    $500 seminar? Same info for $80 from some books, or a blog. But hey count me in I’ll take the CD for free :mrgreen:

  10. Steven says:

    Woot, count me in!

  11. I like him because he gets you thinking. Sure his books are basic but they have got a lot of people thinking about investing who probably never would have.

  12. Ahahahahaha.

    Con artists are great.

  13. Sucker says:

    I could go for a free CD. Although no matter what they gave me I’d be pissed if Robert K himself wasn’t there. I could get the generic advice anywhere, but I like him for his motivational speaking/writing.

  14. Add me to the list of potentials thanks John.

  15. tyler ford says:

    Love your posts. You Rock!

    I will take one if you have some left.

  16. PinoyTech says:

    Hey hey hey! I am in. The Rich Dad series is very popular book series in the Philippines. I would like to have a copy of that one.

  17. LoL, neat John, if they knew you they would know you can’t follow the rules ๐Ÿ˜›

  18. I’d love to be able to find a good real estate investment ever since my last fiasco. Count me in!

  19. 10KPortfolio says:

    I checked out one of the Rich Dad seminars at the convention center. He has good info but always a sales pitch. I wouldn’t mind being in the running for the audio cd.

  20. C.D. Allen says:

    Hi John,

    I’d really like to win that C.D. from ya!


  21. Manik says:

    Does these “Get Rich” lessons work? I always see those ads here and there. What I think is if somebody is motivated enough, with hard work and some luck they will reach the goal. It also takes some talent, not everybody posses that. On the other hand some people on the right track may need some inspiring words from people like him!

  22. Oh what the hell… I will take 2. Count me in. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  23. Chanya says:

    Please throw my name in the hat.

  24. I need to start people $1000 for listening to what I have to say.

  25. Blackysky says:

    I’m really curious to hear what’s on this cd ??? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  26. Bobby Rio says:

    I went to that same seminar in jersey a few months ago… it was such an obvious sales pitch yet the place was packed with people waiting at the back of the room to sign up.

    Ive read enough rich dad material to know their won’t be much new stuff said in course or cd. I do agree that soon will be a great time to invest..

    i should give boot camps on picking up women.

  27. Raj says:

    Couldn’t get thru any of your contests all these time, bad luck ๐Ÿ™ . Lemme try my luck this time ๐Ÿ˜€

  28. n1ch0la5 says:

    Random Comment. I’d like to check out the cd.

  29. Ben says:

    I have read or listened to most of Robert Kiyosaki’s books. He has some good thoughts on how to think of money but to be honest most of what he has to say is hype. I think you’d be better off buying the book The Wealthy Barber by David Chilton .

  30. Rick says:

    ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks for sharing!

  31. I’m replying to the post. If I win, will you actually send it out to me? I’m still waiting for my book. lol

    1. John Chow says:

      You should have gotten it by now. Email me if you still don’t have it.

  32. Oh cool post, I’ve read Rich Dad’s books and even played his Real estate computer games since 5 years ago or so. He’s a genius real estate guy.

    1. Etienne Teo says:

      same here , i have played his rat race game before and it was really great.

  33. I think these type of speakers provide great motivational energy, but whether they actually provide specific steps and concrete workable advice is questionable.

  34. Greg Stratz says:

    let me see if I get lucky.

  35. Sounds great! I wanna be rich :mrgreen:

  36. hi-tech-ti says:

    American is entering recession, and possibly revising its mortgage and property sectors, not good time to buy much apart from candy floss and mince pies. They had years of speculation!

    1. That’s true, my good real estate friend who’s been in the business for years is getting OUT of the real estate. He wants me to make him a new wiki. go figure. It must be real bad because he sells $10 million dollar penthouses in downtown San Francisco.

  37. Eric says:

    I love free stuff just a little more than I hate the Rich Dad, Poor Dad-Industrial Complex.

  38. Joshua says:

    I’ll take it!

  39. kelfy says:

    Hey John..give me the disc or you doomed. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  40. Al Young says:

    Maybe its good info, maybe not.
    If its free, I’ll take one

  41. lol, hope you don’t get in trouble

  42. Itยดs no more than two weeks ago, since I finished reading “Rich Dad Poor Dad”, and I was really happy with it! I started reading on the internet about the author, and it sure seems like everyone don’t findt the book to be as good as I did. Apparently the book is just a fiction story. My first thought was that this was a real story from his own life. Furthermore, he has been involved in som kind of mlm program, which easily upsets people as well. However, I found the book to be really mindopening, and worth the price. I am not sure I would pay $500 for a workshop, but it seems like a rather good deal…

  43. I’m in… though I suspect it will have just one thing repeated throughout the book… ๐Ÿ˜€

  44. Pam Hoffman says:

    I ALWAYS learn something from Robert Kiyosaki.
    I read “Prophecy” twice and I can still learn by reading it again, I’m sure!
    I would LOVE the extra CD John.
    I’ve even set up a Cashflow Club thru Robert’s site. If you are in South Orange County, CA, stop on by sometime!

  45. Tom says:

    Checked out a few of his books before and would like to experience how he uses audio CDs for pitching his seminars. Please count me in.

  46. Mike Huang says:

    John John John…you’re such an evil man. What if you hosted a seminar and other attendants took more than one of whatever you’re giving away? Wouldn’t feel too good wouldn’t it?

    Nah…just messing with ya. I would probably take more than one too and sell or give it away like you ๐Ÿ™‚

  50. Dustin Wallace says:

    I read his book, “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” about a week ago. I was so excited until I read this – http://www.johntreed.com/Kiyosaki.html

    Kiyosaki is a waste of your time and money!!!

    1. MoneyNing says:

      I hope you aren’t John Treed ๐Ÿ™‚ Nice try on the ad though, you will probably get some people to click on it..

    2. Dustin Wallace says:

      No, I’m not John T Reed. And I’m serious about this. You really should read this if you plan on reading or have read or have attended a seminar of Kiyosaki’s.

  51. Thibaut says:

    Don’t give it too me, John ๐Ÿ˜€

  53. sven says:

    name branding is king and seminars can earn some people a very nice living. There are just too many people out there who want to be told what they have to do in life to be successful.

  56. Michael Woo says:

    I think there are values to be gained there ? ๐Ÿ˜€ How was it good>? How bout the quality of the materials? ๐Ÿ™‚

    This reminds me of a workshop that I have attended called AsiaWorks, cost me loads but it brings value though..

  70. John says:

    “The big thing I got out of the Rich Dad โ€œtrainingโ€ session: You can make a lot of money putting on seminars!”

    Congratulations. That’s exactly what intelligent people should get out of these things. YOU are much better qualified to teach people how to make money than the “Rich Dads.” In a way, you do “make money by teaching people how to make money.” But at least you post useful information. You blog about blogging, but actually blog and use real examples of making money.
