In 1997, Robert’s book Rich Dad, Poor Dad stunned listeners, stating, "Your house is not an asset." As howls of protest went up around the world, the book went on to become an international best seller. Today, we are all aware that a home can be a liability. Today, we all know a home can go up or down in value. Today, we all know a person can lose money investing in the stock market. Today, we all know our money can go down in value and even savers can be losers. This is why your financial intelligence is more important today than ever before. In a world of financial turbulence, your best asset is your financial IQ.

It is a cold, hard fact of business life that most startups fail. Even many of those entrepreneurs who ultimately succeed have stories of personal challenges, unsuccessful companies, and difficulties along the way. The founders of TechStars, a mentorship-driven startup accelerator, have worked with entrepreneurs and companies over the past twenty-five years, and have seen a number of the same issues come up again and again.

Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. With perspectives that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage. He is regarded worldwide as a passionate advocate for financial education. According to Kiyosaki, "The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money."
