Her brand is Rich Woman, so how could I not have the incredible Kim Kiyosaki on Glambition Radio?
Kim says she knew early on in life that she wanted to be her own boss. Sitting in a cube working 9-to-5 was not her thing, and despite everyone’s advice to stay in that secure job (health insurance! free coffee and pens!), she took a risk, left corporate America, followed her entrepreneurial bliss, and became a very rich woman indeed… in more ways than one.
You’re likely familiar with her husband and business partner Robert Kiyosaki, who authored the groundbreaking Rich Dad, Poor Dad in 1997. (On the show I share how that book changed my life when in my 20s I picked it up in an airport bookstore.) But Kim is a feminine financial force in her own right. She’s written two bestsellers, Rich Woman and It’s Rising Time, and her passion for educating women around money and business is absolutely contagious.
Listen to her no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is interview now on this week’s Glambition Radio by clicking the play button at the top of this page.
Kim and Robert have been together 30 years now (she shares how they met on the show! Inquiring minds wanted to know ;)), and have built an empire based on educating people worldwide on financial freedom. It all started with creating a board game called “Cash Flow” to teach people how to become smart business owners and investors. Today’s they offer programs and training around the globe.
When doing my research on Kim, I found articles reporting the couple’s estimated net worth—generated from real estate, investments, and their training companies—ranging from $80 million to over $500 million. (That’s the Internet for you. Whichever the case, holy cow… this lady walks her talk, because she and Robert both started with nearly nothing when they met years ago. And this means you should listen to her advice! )
But she’s a rare breed, and that’s why she wants to help more women than ever live rich lives themselves.
Kim shared with me this staggering statistic: While women-owned businesses are the biggest growing sector in the world of entrepreneurship in the U.S., 68% of women-owned businesses make LESS than $25,000 a year! 🙁
Why? You’ll have to listen to our interview to find out why Kim thinks that is… and WHAT women should be doing right now to grow their businesses into profitable money-making machines for years to come.
On this week’s Glambition Radio, I asked Kim to share her top 3 success tips. Here’s a sneak preview for you, in her own words:
Tip #1: What is the problem you want to solve?
“Ask yourself: What is your plan? How big do you want to be? What do you want to create for yourself? How do you want to make a difference? The purpose of an entrepreneur is to solve problems.”
Tip #2: Choose your partners wisely
“You have got to be aligned in your mission and your values. No matter how many partners you have, you all have to have ‘skin in the game’. Really think about who you’re bringing into the fold, because this is like a marriage.”
Tip #3: Learn the language of money
“As a business owner, you can make a lot of money, but if you don’t know what to do with that money once you make it, it will be gone. I want to learn where to put my money, so that money makes me more money.”
I also LOVED that Kim and I saw eye-to-eye on the DEBT thing. Debt can be incredibly powerful when used smartly to change your life and build a business.
