So, you’re feeling a little frustrated. You’ve done all the right things, like getting a college degree, but you’re still not getting ahead. It probably has a lot to do with the type of education you’re focusing on. Let me give you a couple tips so you can get ahead.

Lately, I’ve been talking to people more and more people about their frustrations. I know we all have a lot going on all around the globe, and people are stuck at home because of COVID-19. And even without that, we all have our own problems we’re trying to deal with. It’s frustrating when we’re unable to do all the things we want to do or spend time with our loved ones.


A lot of these troubles are grounded in education. Most of you know how much I love Robert Kiyosaki’s investment philosophies. I love reading his books, and I enjoy his philosophy, which he shares with the world. He’s the one who talks about the concept of three different types of education.

The first type is academic education. Back in the United States, when I was growing up, we called it reading, writing, and arithmetic, which is mathematics. This is our most basic kind of knowledge, which involves basic concepts. You need it as a foundation, but it’s not necessarily going to be what helps you move forward at a faster pace.


Don’t get me wrong! I have two college degrees, and I believe in higher education, but I’m also realizing that life is about much more than just the number of degrees you have to your name. That’s where we get into the second type of education, which is professional education. This is when you become more specialized in your knowledge. If you want to become a doctor, a lawyer, or a highly-paid consultant, you’ll need a more specialized education to achieve those goals.

But this doesn’t necessarily set you free, even after you have a professional education. That leads us to the third type, which is financial education. This is the kind that I talk about all the time, especially with the Cashflow 101 games, because once you get out of school, fewer people want to know about your degrees. They want to know how much money you make, how much money you owe, and if you’re able to repay a loan. The gap between people who have financial education is getting larger. And I’m not just talking about the rich and the poor, but about the people who understand budgets and finances and those who don’t.

Don’t get me wrong! I have two college degrees, and I believe in higher education, but I’m also realizing that life is about much more than just the number of degrees you have to your name.  – Tweet  

Having a good financial education is the foundation of your success. The people who have financial education won’t be left behind because they’ll know how to make money and keep it. This is why I’m so focused on making sure you understand all three types of education, not just the first two. So, please leave your feedback below and let me know if you’re on track with your financial education. We can figure it out together.
