He was one of the presenters of a seminar I helped promote in the late 1980s. I never worked one of the ones he led, so didn’t meet him. The seminar, once known as “Money and You,” had four presenters, and the information was good. One tenet was to leverage to make money. One example was leveraging through books, media, and seminars. This was before he wrote “Rich Dad, Poor Dad,” and I think he did just that. While that book did help some of us who are entrepreneurs to work on multiple income streams, it also discouraged people from buying their own homes. The advice both hurt and helped me. Then, when I spent $300 to send my son to one of his intro seminars (which of course he did not attend), my son saw right through the hype and rah, rah, and left.
