SEO Reputation Management at its best!

To start, I hardly ever write or contribute to threads (can count on one hand times I did), but this one is special.

I am a HUGE Robert Kiyosaki fan. I really think this man is legendary. I have re-read all his books several times and listened to his CDs time and time again.

When RD Education/Coaching came out, about 2 years ago, I thought it was a great opportunity to get some seminar training. Since I log into the Rich Dad site often, those ads targeted me in no time.

I went to the free seminar. It was somewhat informative. Nothing life changing. Since I take and attend various seminars, I am used to the selling and marketing pressure and strategies, so didn't make much of it. I came in expecting to pay for the next one, so the $500 wasn't really a surprise.

They let you bring in a friend, so I brought a friend of mine. We attended the 3-day course. The instructor covered a lot of ground but mostly in the sense of "there's much more to learn and you need to take this course". The instructor worked the audience into expanding their borrowing capacity, by priming us to make list of friends we can borrow money from, calling to expand credit card lines, even changing number of dependencies on the W2 form without telling anyone they will owe money in taxes at the end of the year.

There was a lot of pressure to take the next courses, which I believe started at $10,000 each.

At that time I was pretty much set on doing a course and trying it out, and I did have an extra $10,000 in the bank, so I registered with someone else together, paying each $5,000.

2 days later he got cold feet and canceled, so we both got our money back.

After that I lost interest in the "Education" part but I called to the "Coaching" part. That's where the story begins.

I got a call back and still remember - was on the phone for an hour with this guy, who was trying to persuade me to sign in, saying they have to review and see if they can accept me, that they don't take just anyone and bunch of other stuff.

So I registered and paid about $8K. It was the "Entrepreneur" course. I had a mentor where we had like 20 phone calls or so at a set schedule, an online component and a workbook.

There isn't much to say about it - it was very basic. Maybe worth $350 total in my opinion. My mentor was a nice guy, but I don't really know anything about him.

It really was not productive at all. The whole thing. I practically learned nothing. The worst part is what they call the resource line, a line they urge you to call where you get free advice from them. I called twice and it was always some young kid on the line, handing some neophyte advice.

I am not looking to blame anyone - it was my choice and at that time I really wanted to do something and take a seminar.

But I do think that they are scammy. Super scammy. From A to Z. From my understanding, they licensed RK name and ideas. I hope he is wise enough to take it away from them. People should not be pressured to borrow $10,000 on credit card to take a seminar. That is criminal.

There are 1001 ways to learn this stuff and find mentors and teachers. Some courses are really great. I've done some amazing ones. And some are just awful.

If you want my advice - stay away.

#1 UPDATE Employee ..inside information

Don't blame your trainer...

AUTHOR: Rich Dad Fan - ()

It is really too bad to hear about people that feel they didn't get their "money's worth" out of coaching. Coaching, just like having a personal trainer, is one of those things that you will get out of it what you put into it. Luckily I HAVE gone through Rich Dad Coaching myself and it changed my life. 5 years later I make more money than I have EVER made in my life. It wasn't immediately apparent as I wasn't able to implement many of the things I learned while going through the program due to issues with my oldest son. But since then I have implemented many things I learned and have made amazing strides. Luckily, being on the "inside" of Rich Dad Coaching I get to see the success stories from the students themselves. Does coaching work for everyone? NO!! only those who are ready for it. Just like you shouldn't get a personal trainer if you aren't ready to give up the Old Milwaukee beer and twinkees... and CERTAINLY don't blame your trainer. AND as far as the "resource line" coaches go, they are all amazing equally qualified coaches. Even though I am an employee of Rich Dad Coaching, I still had to pay the tuition... money WELL spent and would do it over and over. As Robert says... when you are passionate about learning how to do something... get a coach!! $6k WELL spent
