Beyond his writing, Kiyosaki has also been involved in various business ventures. He has invested in real estate, which means buying and selling properties. He even launched the Rich Dad Company, which offers financial education materials and seminars, and has been involved in other entrepreneurial endeavors.
It’s worth noting that Kiyosaki’s financial advice and teachings have garnered both praise and criticism.
