Dads, here’s a simple treat for you. For the family-oriented, responsible patriarch, and financially astute head of the family, what could be intellectually stimulating than a cup of coffee with the freshly-baked aroma of a chocolate cake prepared by Mom, and of course a good read! Have a break from the morning newspaper, the sports section, or from feasting your eyes from the latest model of cars today. Aside from these, what really interests Dads today? While women are engrossed on shopping, fashion, cooking, and eating without getting fat, it is agreeable that most guys revel on the money they make. It is of great pride for them to be called the good provider, someone who tends to the family, the one who puts food on the table and sends their children to school, one who delights their wives with their shopping spree and hey, hypocrisy aside, what is love when you can’t provide all of these things for your family? For a man’s ego, riches is almost a necessity. You have hankered for what the business tycoon in your neighborhood had, the wealth amassed by a multimillionaire on the headline of the newspaper today, and you’ve always looked up to someone who’s professional, who finished a bachelor’s degree, a master’s degree. They must be very intellectual, fluent English, American twang, logical mind, and all. But the good news is: to be rich, you don’t need to be a graduate from prominent schools or sorry to say, you don’t even need the diploma you’ve earned from school, let alone the medals and certificates. You just need to be wise, aggressive, and hard-working. I know this is silly but a lot of professionals ended up with a simple living and most people who didn’t finish college ended up with more businesses, more properties, and a fat bank account stashed for a rainy day. The book Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki further elaborates on how becoming rich does not depend upon the good grades we’ve earned from school. Our parents have always taught us to go to school, study hard, and get a job. But with wise thinking, good choices, and hard work, we can always thrive without the effort of attending nine-to-five jobs. This book will teach Dads how to invest and handle their finances wisely. Dads, isn’t it inspiring that there’s still a glimmer of hope and chance for being a good provider without winning the lottery? Afterall, being wise is something we didn’t learn from school.
