pls. tell us anon. 1 what was the context for the above statements? arent these statements to encourage negative thoughts in a non-quixtar creature?

to leonidus,

The first statement about the jobs is questionable to a certain degree but the truth is that anyone with some common sense would rather do something more for himself than just work a job and thus, live an artificial income generating experience.
The last two statements are true 100% of the time.
Witness people who are 40s, 50s and 60s and hear most of them how they talk when the subject of retirement comes up because they barely have money to live on!
The last statement I read from a book called "Before you quit your job" by Robert Kiyosaki. There he says that 90% of all businesses fail within the first 5 years of operation and 9% fail within the first 10 years of operation so, it looks like 99% of them fail within the first 10 years. Robert Kiyosaki is a credible source, featured in books you can buy at Chapters in Canada and Barnes & Nobles in USA. Are you featured in these stores?!

to anon.,

good that you *almost* disagree with the 1st statement.

about the 2nd statement. how many people over 65 have you met in your life? do you think the sample is large enough to make this very strong generalization? do you have a credible source -- a scientific report published recently?

and then the 3rd statement. where does robert kiyosaki get that 90% figure from? i have yet to come across such a study. he might have quoted that number out of his personal experience, which cannot be quoted as a scientific study.

best regards.

Robert Kyiosaki is a business owner and as such he knows quite a bit about the subject not to mention that were he to write such libel in a public public, his credibility would be at stake. Yet he writes it and his credibility is as strong as ever!

Robert Kyiosaki eh! Go to book stores and you'll find books on communism, Scientology and what not. Just because some material is on book does not make it true.

Robert Kyiosaki was NOT a big seller, not by long shot until his books were start being distributed in IBO organizations in amway / quixtar. Go figure!

Regarding his credibility, what he says about house, asset vs. liability? And where he himself lives?

Btw, He is not an IBO, is he

Robert Kiyosaki's books still are on sale at Chapters (in Canada) and to my knowledge they constantly seem to replenish his titles. So no, Robert Kiyosaki is not a product of Quixtar/Amway propaganda; he is being promoted because he thinks, talks and acts business. You think, talk and act losership. Why a successful guy would open a blog, analyze business and yet call himself "Loser", that's something I will never understand and to tell you the truth, don't intend to either. Besides, what's your care about where he lives, if he is an IBO, if he is credible...? you already know he is not an IBO and I would not trade his credibility for a loser's credibility. You are just trying to trick healthy people's instincts into becoming what you are.

And what will I gain if they agree or disagree with me? Do I give a you-know-what?

RE: Loser: lookup sarcasm in dictionary.

"You are just trying to trick healthy people's instincts into becoming what you are."

wow, that was quite a strong statement, and much less a quote from a healthy normal person. maybe, anon. should refrain from personal attacks and use rational statements to justify the existence of a *noble* *once-in-a-lifetime opportunity* *business* like quixtar.

There is a secret to reading that is taught all over the world. Take key points in a paragraph, usually the first 2 lines, and you will be able to understand in its entirety, the paragraph. The rest is all filler. So whether or not someone feels that these staements are negative because they are out of context, just makes them that much more negative. That means the filler around these statements are for the sole purpose to "sell" or convince you that the statements are true and not negative. So basically, boil the comments down to the essentials, what you are left with is fact, in this case negativity. One wouldn't even need to get that deep into it, just look at how IBO's respond to any critic, "your a broke loser", "your a loser with a job" ect...subconsiously even the IBO recognizes that these are negative statements...hence the response lacking logic or thought.
