In the tradition of their number-one blockbuster Why We Want You to Be Rich, the all-star team of best-selling authors Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki reunites to teach listeners what it takes to be successful and influential entrepreneurs in Midas Touch.

What makes some business owners wildly successful? What separates the entrepreneurs who build businesses from ones who just seem to create more work for themselves? How, exactly do the world’s most prominent business builders seem to hit home run after home run? The answer: They have the Midas Touch.

Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki believe the world needs more entrepreneurs. For the first time, two of the world’s most successful and influential entrepreneurs will share their own Midas Touch secrets. Secrets that will both inspire you to find and fulfill your passion as well as provide you with the hands-on guidance you need to be successful. Through their real life stories of success, failure, perseverance and purpose, you’ll discover how they do it and whether or not you have what it takes to drive your own entrepreneurial success.

Nothing New - But Great Motivational Speakers

Where does Midas Touch rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

If you've read the Rich Dad books then this book offers nothing new, but the hearing Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki talk about their ups and downs is very motivational for a young entrepreneur.
I now have Trump's acronym FOCUS (Follow One Course Until Successful) hanging above my desk and it is a constant reminder that keeps me on track throughout the day.

If all you want is good entrepreneurial advice, then there are better books out there. If you want some motivation to keep you going through the hard times then this book is great.

What other book might you compare Midas Touch to and why?

The Rich Dad series or any Brian Tracy book offers the same advice.

Which character – as performed by John Dossett and Skipp Sudduth – was your favorite?

I was particularly inspired by Robert's stories about the mistakes he made. I have made many of the same mistakes and his success motivates me to keep trying.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Never Say "Die".

I would relate this book to Rich Dad Poor Dad.

What does John Dossett and Skipp Sudduth bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

John Dossett and Skipp Sudduth provide fantastic narration.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Big League Success

Their are people who are successful at a grand level. Even picking a few nuggets from them will help towards your goals. These two guys are in the big leagues. The losses and struggles are beyond the basic day to day. It's predictive, preemptively calculated, and demonstrates incredible emotional control.

If the little things are weighing you down, there's no room in the big leagues for you. To me this book puts major success in perspective.

Highly recommend!
