Inspirational Corner: Meeting Robert

Fast Track as arrange with Robert Kiyosaki a Canadian book tour for Robert's new book "Why "A" students work for "C" students, and "B" students works for the government".

They where in Calgary last Wednesday on May 1st. Darren Weeks the founder of Fast Track, was up on stage and described how he came to meet Robert Kiyosaki and how Fast Track came to be, and how this book tour had been made possible. They planned the whole thing in only three weeks time.

Then Robert came on the stage. I really enjoyed hearing him speak. He as a way of not sugar coating everything that he says which is quite refreshing. He spoke of his days at school and of how he struggled. He spoke of his days in the war and how the ability to change saved the life of his battalion, when some others who did not make the necessary changes to their tactic did not fair so well.

He spoke of the future for the American economic system. He paints a pretty gloom picture, one he hopes he'll be proved wrong on.

He spoke a lot of how we learn from infancy on, and how, to give our kids an advantage, we should teach them about money between 0 - 12 years of age. The older we get the harder it will be.

Everyone who attended received his new book and got the chance to get it autographed.

I even shook his hand. Now I have to figure out how to shower without getting that hand wet.
