In this title, two entrepreneurial Icons share experiences and insights into creating and building successful businesses. What makes some business owners wildly successful? What separates the entrepreneurs who build businesses from ones who just seem to create more work for themselves? How, exactly do the world's most prominent business builders seem to hit home run after home run? The answer: They have the Midas Touch. Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki believe the world needs more entrepreneurs. For the first time, two of the world's most successful and influential entrepreneurs will share their own Midas Touch secrets. Secrets that will both inspire you to find and fulfill your passion as well as provide you with the hands-on guidance you need to be successful. Through their real life stories of success, failure, perseverance and purpose, you'll discover how they do it and whether or not you have what it takes to drive your own entrepreneurial success.
Magnate Trump and Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad) are the gold standard of the entrepreneurial spirit self-made, resilient, and charismatic. But they might also just be the saviors of the economy, as they argue in this follow-up to 2006's We Want You to Be Rich. They claim that our educational system is failing people by training them to be employees, not entrepreneurs: students make good grades by making the fewest mistakes, when they should be learning to take chances and bounce back from their failures. Trump and Kiyosaki's five-point plan to developing the "Midas Touch" the necessary skills to become a successful entrepreneur includes strength of character, focus, the power of a brand, =relationships, and the little things. They tell humanizing stories of both their successes Kiyosaki getting his start on Oprah and setbacks, as when he discovered he was unknowingly operating a sweatshop. This galvanizing narrative skews a bit toward mantra-like big ideas rather than executable steps, but is nonetheless an impassioned argument for business self-actualization.
