How the principles explained in the book Rich Dad Poor Dad can be applied to the rental industry

We will be discussing the book Rich dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki and how the principles from the book relate to the rental industry.

This books gives great insight into how rich people think differently.

You might be thinking Why this book is called Rich dad poor dad

It’s because he gets financial advice from two different fathers. His own father was a teacher and not very rich but his friend, Mike's father was a rich business owner.

Robert discusses the lessons he learned from these 2 dads throughout the book.

The main takeaway from the book is that

business owners think differently from salaried individuals.
Business owners think about how to have money work for them. They invest in money making assets and ideas. On the other hand, salaried, poor people work for money and don’t think about how they can use extra money to generate income. Describing someone as poor is not a nice thing to do but the book uses that term to mainly describe someone that is not financially literate.

Business owners always look for ways to have money work for them. For example, They will hire someone with skills to perform tasks for them that creates money for him. Or they will buy assets that could be used to generate money. The rich dad had over 150 employees.

Poor people generally never think like that. They want to keep it safe. They find a job and agree upon a salary and do whatever their employee or boss tells them to do. Poor people don’t spend money on investments. Any extra money they might have they might spend it on unnecessary things like a fancy car or house or clothes.

The problem with this lifestyle is that it’s too dependent on the employer. If the employer goes bankrupt or you get fired you will have a lot of difficulties.

A rich person is actively looking to invest in things. They spend money on things that make money. The book calls these things assets. They are responsible for their own finances and don’t rely on an employer to give them a fixed salary.

One of the first things the boy did when they learned about the rich ways from the rich father was to open a library of comic books where kids in the neighborhood came to their house and read comic books. They were able to make a deal with a comic book delivery guy at their fathers store to keep old comic books. This way they were able to acquire a lot of comic books and provide something of value to the neighborhood kids. The kids would pay a small amount to read as many comic books as they could for 2 hours.

This lesson teaches ingenuity. If you look around for ideas and come up with something useful people will be willing to pay you for your ideas, assets, or service. This is different from the salaried individual mindset. The poor mindset doesn’t think about how to come up with money making ideas often. They just focus on following the boss's orders and getting their salaried paycheck.

We are going to see how the principles taught in the Rich dad poor dad book could be used in the rental industry.

When you buy a rental item as an asset you are using money to make money for you. That was the first lesson from the book. In the case of the rental industry you are a using money to buy a rental asset that will be used to generate rental income. People may want to rent something for only a short period of time. They may not want to pay full price for this asset if they need it for a small period of time. So you will be saving the customer a lot of money and they will appreciate this.

For example lets say You rentout gym equipment for $1,000 dollars. They customer wants to use the equipment for only a week. if the customer would buy those items without renting them it could be $10,000.
