“The problem with having a job is that it gets in the way of being rich”

"The problem with having a job is that it gets in the way of being rich” is a saying that has been printed on an image. Robert Kiyosaki, author of the “Rich Dad” series of books and videos, said this since at least 2002.

The saying means have having a job—working for someone else just to pay the bills—often takes away time from someone’s real plans to get rich, such as opening a business and working for one’s self.


Wikipedia: Robert Kiyosaki
Robert Toru Kiyosaki (清崎 徹 Kiyosaki Tooru, born April 8, 1947) is an American businessman and author. Kiyosaki is the founder of the Rich Dad Company, a private financial education company that provides personal finance and business education to people through books and videos. The company’s main revenues come from franchisees of the Rich Dad seminars that are conducted by independent people using Kiyosaki’s brand name for a fee.

Third rule: Stop working for Corporate America if you want to get rich
British publisher Felix Dennis has an amusing new bestseller: “How to Get Rich: One of the World’s Greatest Entrepreneurs Shares His Secrets.” Next time you’re in a bookstore scan it over coffee and a muffin. His bottom line: “You’ll never get rich working for your boss!” Familiar? Yep. Same message as in Thomas Stanley’s “The Millionaire’s Mind” and Robert Kiyosaki’s “Rich Dad, Poor Dad.” Kiyosaki adds: “The problem with having a job is that it gets in the way of getting rich.”
