Why Mentoring Matters

Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad and a multi-millionaire entrepreneur, says “My Rich Dad told me long ago, “If you’re the smartest person on your team, then your team is in trouble. That’s why I have my team of advisors. I count on them to bring a variety of talent and experience to the table whenever we look at a business venture.” 

Robert adds, “By surrounding yourself with a good team, you can directly affect the outcome of your financial success.”
