    161: Jaw-Dropping Interview with Robert Kiyosaki

    161: Jaw-Dropping Interview with Robert Kiyosaki

    I wasn’t going to publish this episode because I had some very mixed feelings about it. 
    In the end I went with my gut and decided to release it and let you decide what you think about it. 
    12 years ago I read Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki and it left a really big impression on me. I always dreamed of speaking to Robert and letting him know how inspired I was by his book and how it impacted me. 
    Well today my dream came true but it wasn’t what I expected. 
    Robert has some very strong views and it really came across in this episode. 
    I won’t say anything more as I want you the listener to have an unbiased opinion. 
    This is by far the most shockingly candid interview I have ever done. 
    For those of you with sensitive ears I must warn you that there is some strong language used. 
    I’d love to hear your feedback so please send me an email to daniel@gefenmediagroup.com 
    Or reach out to me on Facebook or LinkedIn. 
    Enjoy the show …
