That is our accountant's office, but is listed as our registered address; so not sure it is quite as busy as 470 companies in reality!

There are three key lessons from the RDPD series of books.
Assets & Liabilities
An Asset is something that puts money into your pocket, a Liability is something that takes money out of your pocket each month.
Understanding how to transition from "E" to "S" to "B" to "I" .
All other words in the books are a very long winded way of explaining and motivating you on what I've just summarised above. Don't get me wrong it's a great read.
Where I disagree with Kiyosaki is on "Good Debt vs Bad Debt" which is what you're alluding to with your original post.
Debt is debt.
I absolutely hate the way Kiyosaki is encouraging you to ask the question in the thread title "Can I invest in property with little money?"
You can't, it's dangerous.
The third good lesson he teaches is rather than saying "I can't afford it" he encourages you to ASK "HOW can I afford it??"
That's the key to building a successful investment portfolio.
Forget getting into Property with little money, focus on rectifying things so you DON'T have little money.
And that is where I part with Kiyosaki, the answer to that question is not what he suggests, but hard work, focus on career development or change, or start a business.
High paid job or business to CREATE wealth, Investment portfolio to STORE & GROW wealth.
Figure out how to bank 100 grand plus, as your starting pot THEN look at becoming an Investor.
I read it in late 90s and it changed my life but we don’t have Donald Trump as PM
Some of it still works with a company formation but even then it’s still taxed higher then personal BTL
Learn Change and Adapt ?????

Out of interest DL which part changed your life, what were the specific bullet points you actioned?
Basically the fact that there is good borrowing and bad borrowing
ie borrow mone for something that puts positive cash flow only
ie for a property
dont borrow for a car ect
Surely you didn't need Kiyosaki to teach you that?!
To be truthful yes it did teach me a lesson and I am not alone that’s why the book is a best seller
I lived in a beautiful country property with no mortgage and I went to visit my local bank manager and I started borrowing big time
I fully agree with your comments RDPB is not the best book out there and is a little narrow focus. Don’t get me wrong it is a good book, but to much focus on properties I think.
Great! I looked at his teaching from a different point!
Out of interest what points did you take from it?
