Knowledge is the New Money
Robert I am a Firefighter by trade, investor at heart. As I talk about your book, and ask other what they think is going on, they clearly lack knowledge. I can say you have steered me towards knowledge and without it we are just a bunch of sheep. We vote in the incumbent because they "know what is going on," "It is a safe bet to vote for the incumbent." I can't praise your efforts to educate me, and America, enough. Knowledge is power, thanks for giving me some.
As I read your books and especially this one I see the average guy in myself. I might get a pension when I retire. I pour money into my 457, I don't think I need to tell you how that is going. I have RE investments. I have other business ventures going, all that require me to be involved. I am trying to move quadrants to the "I" quadrant but it is not something that happens overnight. I have been reading you books for 3 years and trying to migrate my efforts from TV and movies, to studying and developing my businesses. All the while feeling I am behind the curve. Thinking I will probably never be in the 10 percent, but hopefully my kids will.
I won't say I am a wolf, but I certainly am not a sheep.
