Robert Kiyosaki Personal History
Robert Kiyosaki is hawaiian, born to the Yonsei generation of Japanese Americans. His father Ralph H. Kiyosaki was a teacher and his mother Marjorie O. Kiyosaki was a nurse. He grew up with his parents and three siblings in Hilo, Hawaii. He graduated from Hilo High School in 1965. Following this the only supplied information about his life is from his own speeches.
His early career began essentially in the U.S. army. Firstly he attended the U.S. Naval Academy and then the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy where he graduated in 1969, with a BSc degree and the position of deck officer. He also left with a commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Marine Corps. Robert fought in the Vietnam War of 1972 as a helicopter gunship pilot, where he received an Air Medal. He was honorably discharged from the army in June 1974.
Following his stint in the army, Robert Kiyosaki completed a MBA qualification over two years in Hilo at the University of Hawaii, which saw the start of his career in business. Back in his personal life, he married Kim Kiyosaki in 1986 and has no children.
Robert Kiyosaki Professional Career
Following his MBA graduation, he attended the Erhard EST seminars, which reportedly ‘changed his life’. From this, in 1977 he started his first company. The brand Rippers was the first of its kind, this business brought nylon and velcro ‘surfer’ style wallets into the modern day. The company flourished through smart advertising and was featured in several top-rate publications, these include: Runner’s World, Gentleman’s Quarterly, Newsweek and Playboy. However due to changing times, this company eventually declared bankruptcy.
His second company manufactured a range of clothing, namely hats and t-shirts tailored the music genre of metal rock. Despite his best efforts, this company also went bankrupt. Following multiple failed attempts at business, Robert Kiyosaki helped founded the Excellerated Learning Institute. This educational establishment was built to teach individuals about investing, social responsibility and entrepreneurship. At the same time, he met Kim, his current wife who made a name for herself in real estate investing in Phoenix. This led Robert to sell his educational company in 1994.
During this time, the then amateur author published, If You Want to Be Rich and Happy, Don’t Go To School as his first book. This summed up the real estate business and its benefits when entering into the market at an early age.
Following this, Robert launched another financial education company which integrated his new approach to business and called it Cashflow Technologies. It was then, in 1997 that his most famous work Rich Dad, Poor Dad was published. The company still owns his Rich Dad series and Cashflow brands.
The success of his company and publications can largely be attributed to his interviews (e.g. with Forbes) and through his franchise network with Rich Dad seminars being held all over America.
