I held a key position before leaving corporate life that exposed me to the financial genius of Robert Kiyosaki. Famous for his Rich Dad, Poor Dad book, Robert had signed an agreement with my employer (formerly Franklin Covey Coaching, now the Professional Education Institute). My role as Director of Innovation was to assist in transforming Robert’s intellectual property into coaching modules.
One of Kiyosaki’s models in particular still carries a heavy impact for me so I adapted it to share inside my coaching practice.
I recommend that the free agent thinker could greatly benefit from understanding this model and using it to re-wire our thinking from poor or middle-class financial thoughts, to rich thinking patterns.
One powerful way to do this is to watch the link directly below. Then play a round or two of the Cash Flow game.
Shifting out of limiting financial thought-patterns is exactly what happened recently at the Skinworks School of Advanced Skincare here in Salt Lake City. I had shared the model above with students during a business class and suggested they play the Cash Flow game as a follow-up.
A handful of instructors and students did just that. Investing in themselves by setting up the game on their day off, they teamed up and played Cash Flow in a Skinwork’s class rooms. I dropped in to see the action.
Here are several quick interviews that express better than I can how this game transformed their thinking.
Leah breaks out of the “Rat Race”!
Stephanie shares her story of breaking free using “small deals” and patience.
Joanna takes a huge risk to get out of the “Rat Race”.
Ashlee talks about how to get free of the “Rat Race”.
Charlotte explains how she used small deals and savings as a means to purchasing big investments.
Haleigh explains how she made a huge mind shift and increased her income. First she had to shift from thinking in terms of simply saving her money to making incremental, “Smart” investments that led her to financial freedom during the Cash Flow game.
