Kevin Biggar will Blow Your Mind…

Kevin is one of those  few people who will totally INSPIRE YOU to unleash your inner power. He embodies the meaning of personal power to defeat any limitation we think we have.

In a few words, Kevin is the one who made the impossible Possible!

I was fortunate enough to attend one of his conferences back in December. In fact, I wasn’t expecting to attend any conferences that day, but it is one of those things that just happen. I went there with zero expectations. To be honest, I didn’t even know who was the presenter and when I finally got there and heard the name, I still didn’t know who he was because…. I don’t watch any TV or News at all).

(Kevin if you’re reading this sorry about that but, it’s the truth :P)

As I was saying… I had no expectations for what was about to happen and perhaps that was one of the best things!

At first glance, Kevin looks like a typical Kiwi (New Zealander), tall athletic, nice blue eyes with a witty, professional look but at the same time, sort of … laid back. Giving his audience a sense of  “hey! he’s a normal guy like me!”. I can relate to that!

His presentation begun and as I was listening to what he had to say, watching his videos, laughing at his crack up personality and after having my mind blown away by his C-R-A-Z-Y stories. You realize that he is not just another KiwiJust as Sir Edmund Hillary who was ‘a former Bee-Keeper from Auckland, New Zealand and also the one who -alongside Tenzing Norgay -became the first climbers to conquer the summit of Mount Everest on May, 1953Kevin Biggar is also -on his own way- a Conqueror.

Once his presentation ended, I came out of the room feeling Empowered, Inspired, and knowing for a fact that I could conquer any of the goals I had. I just needed to re-evaluate my strategies and make them more efficient.

Kevin Biggar‘s presentation had a transformational affect on me. After his presentation, I approached him and asked him if I could interview him. Fortunately enough, Kevin agreed to our interview 🙂

So now I can share his story and excellent advice with YOU. ( Yes, You =) ).

See? I care about you my darling! The thing is, I KNOW that Kevin’s impressive stories can IMPACT you as much as it did me and his effect would be even more powerful if you attend some of his workshops.

Kevin Biggar will help you become better than what you already are and he will teach you how to set goals to Successfully ACHIEVE THEM in spite of how crazy you might think they seem to be!

Kevin will inspire you to UNLEASH Your Inner Power.

So… Who is Kevin Biggar?

From a professional man with an established career , holding a physics degree and a masters, transitioning then as a self-confessed couch potato, before he was transformed into a world record beating endurance athlete in 2003 winning a huge-endurance 5000 Km Trans-Atlantic Rowing Race.

Rowing for the first time in his life alongside a team partner, who he had only met 6 weeks before the race, they not only won, they set a New world record!

The pair then went on to achieve a much tougher challenge in 2007 – as the first ever kiwi team to complete an unsupported trek from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole – a 52 day, 1,200km journey on foot, each towing a 160 kilogram sled in temperatures as freezing as -40 degrees Celsius.

Kevin has written two books about his exploits, the award winning ‘Oarsome Adventures of a Fat Boy Rower’ and ‘Escape to the Pole’.

Alongside Jamie Fitzgerald, his rowing team partner,  they co host a TV Series ‘Intrepid NZ’ – recreating the adventures of pioneering NZ explorers.

Kevin will entertain you with his adventures, and share with us what he has learnt about facing challenges from rowing across the Atlantic Ocean and Trekking to from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole.

Check out a brief summary of my Interview with Kevin Biggar

Kevin, At what point did you decide to do something different? What was your why?

Kevin: I was going  through a quarter life crisis. I just turned 33 years old. I started to think about what I had and hadn’t achieve and what I was ever going to achieve. For the first time, it didn’t feel like I had all the time in the world to do everything and if I wanted to do something that I wanted to do, NOW was the time.

Would you mind sharing the story about your mum and your decision to take part of the Trans-Atlantic Rowing Race?

Mom decided that the only way we would get a result (an agreement) was to ask to her favourite TV show and they will decided if I should go or not. Since then I’ve met all of them and I’ve individually thank all the members.

I see your 5’000 Km trans-Atlantic rowing race as the race across the ocean of life.
At some point in our lives, there we are in front of this vast ocean of life not knowing WHAT to do or HOW to do things. Some people follow the regular path society imposes whereas others like, Us the entrepreneurs, choose to do something different, something that others may call “crazy” or   “unreasonable”. In your case, you had no previous experience rowing but you TOOK ACTION…. HOW did you map out your plan of action?

Kevin Biggar: Just to clarify, I had no experience rowing when I had the Idea of getting to row, but that was 2 years before the race. So by the time it started out I was very strong.

I think that one of the most important things when you step out to do things you don’t normally do is to find somebody who is doing what you think you are gonna do. For me was a really powerful moment when I met somebody else who had row across the ocean. I met a guy called Rob Hamill , he was a kiwi guy who had won the first Trans-Atlantic Rowing Race and when I met him I saw he  was just a normal person. If he was a normal person and he could row across the ocean then I am a normal person too so I should be able to row across the ocean too and suddenly it doesn’t seem like something extraordinary, but like something that if you plan a method you can achieve.

Whatever people is going to do or think of doing, there is always a little sub-culture, a little sub-tribe of who is doing those things. And once you meet them it suddenly becomes more straightforward of how realistic it is to take on this challenges.

Holy cow! if that shmuck could achieve things from sitting on his mom’s couch, well think of how much I can do from where I am starting now. (Kevin Biggar)

If you really want to take on something brave. It’s not about having no fear, it is not about being really tough. It’s just about having a simple method and breaking down the tasks into little steps and  building up the momentum on taking on the tasks.

The first  thing to do is to meet people who have done similar things to what you want to achieve and start talking to them and getting a plan.

Now I teach people on my workshops that if you want to take on anything, then it is just a question of learning the skills and backing yourself up.

It’s all about the mindset…

Kevin Biggar: I don’t think it’s all about the mindset. I think that to take on any big challenge, it’s all just about having a process where you set little milestones early on. You meet the right people and you gradually get drawn into it. If you set up a system where you make the process towards what you want to achieve more fun. There is a little bit of discipline and willpower involved, but I don’t think a system to success should  be based on been hugely staunch.

Anyone can achieve a huge amount!

The only reason why they don’t try is that they believe they are lacking a certain mysterious ‘X-factor’ that successful people have but in fact it’s not quite how it works. All they are missing are the skills that can be learnt. Like ‘how to keep persistent’ or ‘how to deal with cravings, etc.  These are things that can be taught and I teach this things myself on my workshops.

What were the biggest challenges that you encounter?

Kevin Biggar: The biggest challenge that I encountered was getting to the ‘start’ line. Also, possibly in both cases another challenge was raising the money and finding the sponsorship. That was the hardest part and that’s when you are knocking on a lot of doors, getting rejected day after day. You are putting in your own money to keep things at float and at any time you could quit and it wouldn’t be a big deal. But when you are in the race, or when you are walking up to the south pole it is much harder to quit. (…) Kevin then explains some of the challenges he and his partner Jamie faced during their rowing race and while trekking Antarctica.

Making an analogy between someone who has decided to make a career change and start  new business with you at your Rowing race across the Atlantic or,  with your trek across the South Pole in Antarctica. You didn’t start it just for the sake of doing something different, You did it to WIN. Was that your major goal?

Yes, in the south pole, our major goal was to trek  unsupported and unresupplied. We put all of our own food and fuel from the start. Yes, we did it to WIN.

The key thing for people starting their own businesses it is having a mentor. Someone who  knows what are the odds if something pops out.(…) Someone to ask you what your business plan is, what your marketing plan is right at the very start before you invest lots of time and money.(…) There is a lot to be said by someone who is just a couple of years further on the road than you and see what they’ve learnt from the systems that they’ve put in place. I am big fan of getting in a group of people who is doing similar things.

Once you were in your race and things got tough. How did you get the motivation to keep going?

There’s a motivation in keeping your environment set up in such a way that it helps you. When  you are on a boat and all you  can do is row and if you don’t get up to do your shift then your team mate doesn’t get in to sleep. Then, it’s not so hard to get up. We didn’t have any other options. (…)Your life becomes simple and that’s what I do now in terms of motivation.(…) I met  with someone who is in a complete different business than me and all we do is we hold each other accountable for the goals that we set or we are going to set (…)That is massively motivating for me because I don’t want to let this guy down.

Do you think you can compare your situation in the ocean as a life-threatening situation?

No, I felt safe… I felt safe up until the moment when I nearly died (laughs). I talked about that in the speech (…). Trekking to the south pole I felt more like we were gonna die. It was really easy for a little thing to snowball and  go wrong (…)

That reminds me of this  quote “When you want to succeed as hard as you want to breath, then you will succeed”

Kevin Biggar: Well that is exactly the kind of advice that I think is bad advice. I have rules of advice, I call them my laws of bullshit.

  1. If you hear something and the opposite is also true, then you know you are getting bad advice. (refer to audio for great examples)
  2. If the advice sounds correct but it requires me to be superhuman then that’s not good advice either. (refer to audio for great examples)


A Great tip that helped you keep yourself motivated…

Getting some coaches and a business mentor. The people who I took great attention of in the build-up  was my coach called Jon Ackland from Performance Lab and if anyone is thinking of doing an ultra-marathon adventure or some sort of extreme outdoor adventure then he would be a fantastic person to speak to because he understands performance and the athletic world. To get an hour with Jon is to get some very powerful lessons.

Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die Crucial Conversations Tools for Talking When Stakes are High The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don't Work and What to Do About it


What do you think is the one thing that prevents most entrepreneurs from taking action & What advice can you give them?

Fear of the consequences, fear of what can get wrong. That is certainly what almost stopped me from taking part of the transatlantic rowing race. (…) The key thing is to make certain that there is a safety net underneath you so make sure  that you are not risking everything – unless you are  the sort of person that can find that particularly motivation or you are particularly young-. If you are 21 then you could go broke, but if you are 35 with 2 kids then that is not so appealing.

It’s about looking at the risks wide-eyed and making sure you’ve got the wort case scenario sorted. So if the worst case happens then you should be able to survive it. (…)and definitely HAVING A PLAN, even if you change the plan later, it is much better to start off with a plan and then change the plan as a result of the information you learn. I’m guilty myself of living day to day in the business and not thinking about where I want to be in a year’s time and working backwards from there.


If you are looking to make a career change, to become an entrepreneur and start your own business, these are the main points I’ve gotten from Kevin Biggar’s advice.

      1. Surround yourself with people who have done similar things to what you want to achieve.
      2. Get yourself a Mentor  or a Coach, someone who has been where you are at and it is exactly where you want to be.
      3. Learn the skills and methods necessary to succeed in your area of choice.
      4. Have a PLAN of Action from the beginning, know where you are going to and be flexible to change/adapt that plan according to circumstances that serve your purpose.

With these 4 things in place, You can achieve whatever you want to achieve. Remember, It is not about trying hard but about trying Smart.

Ameli Antoinette – Sharing My Mission and Vision with You

So I’ve decided to be sharing my mission and vision with you. I have to admit that it took me a while to figure out my mission and vision.

No, actually, it took me a while to put my mission and vision into words so I could come up with a short phrase that is easy to understand… You know the Rule: Keep it Short and Sweet.

If you’re one of those whose got as much patience ad sylvester has with tweety, then here is the video for you to watch it

I’ve had a vision ever since I was 5 or 6, some people called it dreams, but my childhood dreams became my vision. As I grew up, I knew that my dreams, my vision was closely tied to my vision. Sometimes life puts into our way experiences that we think – I mean, we swear we won’t be able to overcome them!- It’s like chilling out at the beach on a beautiful summer morning, when all of a sudden you feel that the earth shakes -actually you don’t because you’re floating on the calming sea-water- but then you feel the current is taking you away from the shore and suddenly this MASSIVE, HUGE, IMMENSE WAVE (let’s call it a TSUNAMI) starts forming right in front of your beautiful bambi eyes.

When that happens you’ve got 2 options, The fearful-freak-out side of you wants to run away scooby-doo style hoping to find the highest point at the top of the closest mountain (yeah,right).

Whereas the other side, the rebellious one, wants to quickly find a board, jump on it and paddle towards that massive wave and SURF IT! Determined to break a Guinness record while it keeps telling you “We’ve got this baby!“(yeee-haw).

But then, you realize that instead of standing up staring at the tsunami thinking of what was best to do. You should have just take action first! because now…

Oh – no…

Oh – no…

Because now, you are underwater history.



So now that you’ve got an insight of what happens in my mind within 2 seconds of having to take tough decisions at a rush moment. Let’s get back to my… reality check and lessons learnt.

After being devoured and thrashed a thousand times from that -better yet, those– couple of tsunamis*. I saw my life playing as a movie while drowning (this bit is literally true).

*This tsunamis were called:

  • The “Passing Away”: My beloved and sweet Mom passing away very quickly during a crucial moment in my life when I only had time to be strong, move on and get my work done.
  • The “It’s time To Say Good-Bye”: A very bad and toxic split of a long relationship with the man whom -back then- I totally believed was the one I would spend the rest of my life with.
  • The “Career Change & Naysayers Carols”: After having pretty much zero time to be with my mom, I re-assesed my life and decided to make a career change. I always had the entrepreneurial bug within me. I wanted to have my own business so I decided it was time to Start my own business. Of course, I had no idea what to do and how to do it; my family and most of the people around me, but 3 people, were singing their nay-saying Carols , telling me I was NUTS for leaving my Medical career, my status and my home country (Yes I made a big move from Peru to NZ)
  • The “Oh Baby I’m Your 25 Crisis, nice to meet you”: I was 25 and my life was a total mess, everything was upside down, what I’ve had planned ever since I was 12 dissappeared in a blink of an eye, I was all alone. What the Heck was I going to Do??? Yes, believe it or not I was on my 24’s-25’s when ALL OF THIS BOMBS EXPLODED pretty much within a period of 3 months.


BUT Somehow, I managed to survive, I choked, I lost my memory but then when I woke up I was actually upside down hanging from a rock. Bruised, with some ribs broken and very confused I made my way back again. This is only a bit of what I have learnt…


  1. Life is not easy, but it’s not difficult either. It is our perception at the precise moment what defines what life really is. And it’s our Actions at that moment what determine what will happen to us in the future. In other words, where we are TODAY is somehow a result of a series of actions we have taken in the past.
  2. Life is not a colorful world, but it ain’t all black and white, baby.  Actually, the monochromatic tones will jump into it every now and then. It is only up to you to choose the right color combinations and create your own canvas, your own masterpiece.
  3. Your mind and your time are your biggest assets. In my opinion, material things are worthless if you don’t have the time, the freedom to enjoy it and the right people around you to share it with. So your TIME and your MIND are your biggest assets. Spend them wisely, invest them wisely. If you do you’ll have the freedom and the ability to generate the abundance that will complement the life you love. For you and the ones around you:)


So… what does THIS has to do with sharing my mission and vision with you?

It may seem more like I’m rambling, but the truth is. What I have just said above has everything to do with me managing my own business, loving my life and communicating my core with YOU

Some of my decisions took me through the tough road, some of them were lessons I HAD-TO learn, lessons that I needed to learn so I could become a better person to Serve You. To give you the value -I hope You need- to take charge of YOUR OWN LIFE!

My mission is to help you take inspired action so you take charge of your own life. Making a balance between your mind and your soul, to create a lifestyle and a business that you absolutely love.

If there is ONE thing I am ABSOLUTELY certain is that YOU create your own reality. And there is no one more responsible for anything that happens in your life but YOURSELF.

But that is something we’ll discuss on my next video, on my next post where I will give you the Tips and Advice to consider before Quitting your Job, so whether you want to start a new business, make a career change, travel the world, go on food tours then, stay tuned for my next post!

Advice #1 is: Embrace Your Situation :).

That’s all for today folks!

See you tomorrow!

The 17 keys to be successful in life and business

The 17 keys to be successful in life and business

How hard do you think it is to be successful in life and business?
better yet, do you really think is complicated to reach your goals?
What if I tell you that, it is not complex at all…

It might be challenging -yes- but if you do things on a certain way,
being successful in life and business can be easily achieved.

No, you do not have to google  “Hey google will I be successful in life?”
or leave it to astrology and search your daily horoscope on the magazines
(Yes, people DOES search for those terms)


It doesn’t matter if you’re a libra or a leo,
it doesn’t matter if you have just graduated college
or if you are a high school drop-out.

Unlike the status-quo wants you to believe, this factors might be
important but are not vital to determine your success in life and business.

Because the truth is: You have EVERYTHING within yourself
to be successful in life and business.

Now let’s get to the fruit & juice of this blogpost…

Amelí, what are the keys to success?

There are many factors involved and actually, when I think
about the ultimate tips to be successful in life and business
a lot of ideas and factors come to my mind.

But as promised I’ll give you now the 27 ultimate tips to reach your goals
and succeed not only in your life but also in your business.

So, the first 3 undeniable rules to success are:

Key to success #1 – Trust and Believe in Yourself

 All you need is within you now.

Do you realize that?

You have everything you need within yourself right now to be successful. Start today a journey of transformation, You have the chance to be successful in life and business to make your life completely different right now.

Believe in yourself - take back your power- wealthypreneurs

Key to success #2 – Learn to let go and move forward 

“Let today be the day you learn the grace of letting go and the power of moving on”
~Dr. Steve Maraboli

Let me be clear, it is not that there is something holding you back. But instead what you think it;s holding you back… most of the time the clouds in our minds don’t let us see things as they really are, and they are usually simpler than we think.
So relieve the load from the past, let go, keep moving forward and fill your book with new experiences :).

new chapter of your life wealthypreneurs let go

Keys to Success #3: Have a Vision, Be Unrealistic 

“Hold The vision, Trust the process”

Over the last posts we’ve been talking a bout this consistently. BELIEVE, have FAITH, and do whatever you need to do to make it happen.

Key to Success #4 – Dare to be Unrealistic

Or… think outside the box, Think BIG, set your goals base on what you really want. Because when you are
“realistic”you are basing your future based on past experiences. And if you create your future based on past experiences, you are not going to get anywhere. So Be Unrealisitic!. Ask yourself: “What do I really want?”

Key to Success #5 – Have a Plan, Get Directions.

It is vital to have a plan. You need to know where you are heading to and build your plan around it.

In here I’d like to quote Alice in Wonderland:

Chesshire Puss…Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?’
`That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,’ said the Cat.
`I don’t much care where–‘ said Alice.
`Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,’ said the Cat.

So, know where you are, know where you are heading to and head in that direction. The direction of achieving your goals and making your dreams come true.

Key to Success #6 – Set Goals

This is the same as knowing where you are going to.
Your goals are like the steps you need to take to get to your “Neverland”.
We have already spoke about the power of goal setting and its 8 golden rules, if you haven’t read it yet, go ahead and read it 🙂

Oh and btw, when you set your goals also consider these:

  1. K.I.S.S = Keep It Simple Stupid.
    Seriously, just keep it simple. So instead of overcomplicating things. Break up your main big goal into smaller tasks, this will ensure you follow them step by step.
  2. S.M.A.R.T.S. =
    Be Specific with your goals, be as detailed as possible as to what you want to achieve, write it down and use all of your senses when describing them.
    Measure your goals: that is why is important that your goals are also specific so you can measure when you have accomplished them.
    Achievable: Be aware that sometimes, we set ourselves up with huge goals that we feel out of our reach at that moment. So Yes, be Unrealistic with your goals, but at the same time draw a line and push yourself to the maximum limit only IF you are committed to do so. This is what I call, taking a calculated, smart risk.
    Right & Relevant: To me is all about being true to yourself, we are talking about your life here! so make sure that when you are setting up your goals, do looking at the things that YOU REALLY want to do, give yourself that gift and for a moment think only about yourself, forget about please other people point of view, or following other people suggestions that don’t resonate with you, even if what they say sounds logical or “right” according to society. Just Be Truth to YOURSELF and ask yourself:  What do I really want to do with my life? What do I really want? How achieving “this” goal is going to influence and improve my life? Be honest.
    Time-bound:  Make sure that you set a time frame as to the specific time when you want your goals to be achieved. You are the only one who can do this. Now, I recommend doing this after you have already mapped your plan. Consider the things around your life at the time, but ultimately is all about HOW BAD do you really want to achieve them? You and only you have the answer and you and only you have the power to succeed.
    Simple: As I said before, Keep it Simple stupid :)!

Key to Success #7 – Practice Successful Habits

Wherever you are right now is a result of the habits you have.
Developing good successful habits is key to achieve our goals and ultimately to have the life we want. For this you also need to have self-discipline. Wake up early, dedicate at least 30 min per day to read relevant books, listen to audios or study the information relevant to what you want to achieve. Practice healthy habits, take care of your health, exercise, etc…

Key to Success #8 – Establish your own ‘non-negotiable’ rules

Ok, the whole point of creating your own goals is because you really want to achieve them, your goals are so strong that they inspire you and motivate you to wake up every morning and work towards them they are also so strong that when things get a bit hard you will push through! So I want you to be honest with yourself right now, and the point of establishing your own ‘non- negotiable’rules is for example: When you know you want to do a post in your blog, or finish the research for your presentation, or studying for that big exam next week and some of your friends come and tell you to ‘take a break’, relax or just ‘leave it there’for a second you say NO, I want to finish this not because I”have-to” but because I want to. Now, I am not saying go neglect your life and forget you have a life. Not at all! All I’m saying is: Learn to say now and put your feet down in the break when necessary. Plus, it is always rewarding to do something fun after you know you’ve done something that is taking you closer to your goal :).

Key to Success #9 –  Be Flexible & Expect the Unexpected 

As I said previously in this post. Learn to BE FLEXIBLE. Review your current actions, see if they are working if not, be open to change and take new actions, be flexible with your rules as long as they take you CLOSER to your goal.

Key to Success #10 – Embrace Failure

You need to be willing to fail. There are moments when you are going to learn and in others you’ll learn.
Failing is part of the process, it is how you learn, how you improve and how you also implement new strategies.

Key to Success #11 –  Be Consistent & Comitted

Remember, CONSISTENCY is KEY. As long as your goals remain true to yourself, this step is actually easier.

Key to Success #12 – Find someone to be accountable with

Ask a friend, a partner, someone in your family if they can be accountable to you. Share with them how they can help you, tell them what you are trying to achieve and what are your rules. So if at any moment you feel like leaving something for later, or tempted to do other things. They will be there helping you to push through and reminding you why you should continue and do what you need to do:).

Key to Success #13 – Push your Limits & get out of your comfort zone

It’s not always going to be easy. But I’ll tell you what? It will always be rewarding. BE willing to push through, look for new ideas and get out of your comfort zone. That is the only way you’ll grow.

Key to Success #14 – Strive for Progress, not for perfection

If all of our lives and existence would be perfect everything will be freaking boring! So strive for progress, action beats inaction. You will improve and “perfectionate’as you go through but just DO!.

Key to Success #15 – Teach what you learn . Give something back

“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care” – John Maxwell

To have knowledge is not enough,  the best way to learn is by teaching others and sharing what you know. So if you want to learn more, give and share more. Great leaders always inspire not only with what they do but with what they teach.

Key to Success #16 – Be Grateful

I can’t emphasize enough the importance and relevancy of being grateful. Be grateful for who you are, for what you have, for what you are doing, for waking up every morning  because every day is an opportunity to do things better, to improve your life and the life of others. Be grateful for your friends, for the people around you – whether you love them or whether they are not connected to you- because everything my friend… EVERYTHING happens for a reason and as long as you are learning, you are growing. So be grateful 🙂

Key to Success #17 –  Take Massive Action

To truly succeed one must be an action taker. There is no point on knowing all of these principles if you don’t take action.
Results come from action. And it is your results that speak better than anything you say. So take ACTION! Your life is awaiting 🙂

Finally, remember that the only difference between Successful People and unsuccessful people is Discipline, Consistency and Taking Action!

Now that you know the 17 keys to be successful in life and business, all you need is the right mindset and the right tools!

77 ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’ quotes by Robert Kiyosaki.

Have you read Rich Dad, Poor Dad from Robert Kiyosaki?

The first time I read “RichDad, Poor Dad”, it was probably
between my 14 or 15’s I LOVE reading and this kind of
books were always part of our shelves thanks to mum.

Mum always ensure that we feed our minds with valuable
information besides what I learnt at school, I was a curious
little girl and she always allowed me to express myself
and respected my own –sometimes weird– opinions.

Oh mum, you always gave me the right foundation for my success.

I guess I was being a wealthypreneur without even knowing
what being a wealthypreneur meant back then.

Ok, let’s get back on track! :P… To be honest, it has already
been 12 years since I read it  for the first time and I couldn’t
remember much.

Since last year up until now I’ve listened to the “rich dad, poor dad”
audiobook probably about 10 times, and just recetly I decided
to buy the book again and read it. This time, in english.
(FYI, I’m from Peru so the first time I read it, it was in Spanish)

I started reading the book 2 days ago, and I don’t wanna finish it!
One of my rules is listen to an audio for about 1 hr and read for
about 1 hour. I usually do this right after my morning meditation,
as soon as I wake up. It is one of my rituals.

So yes, you might be saying… Ameli, you spend 2 hours reading
and listening to audios?… 2 HOURS??!!!
YES,  and I call this Investing in myself. I know that my mindset
and my time are my biggest asset so I choose to invest in them
to then, apply what I know not only in businesses, but also in
my life. Nowadays time for me is not a problem anymore as I am
a full time online entrepreneur so I can distribute my time as I please.
Of course, I get distracted sometimes!

Now before I say anything else, I’ll share with you some of
my favourite and …

Powerful quotes from “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”


“One dad would say: “The love for money is the root of all evil”. The other one, “The LACK of  money is the root of all evil”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“Learn  to Manage Risk”  (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“There is a difference between being poor and being broke. Broke is temporary, and poor is eternal”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“Take it or leave it.  I’ve got too much work to do to waste my time. If you can’t make up your mind decisively, then you;ll never learn to make money anyway. OPPORTUNITES COME AND GO. Being able to know when to make a quick decisions is an important skill” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#5  For when you blame your boss or someone else about situations in YOUR LIFE

“You’d Best Change your point of view. Stop blaming me, thinking I’m the problem. If you think I’m the problem, then you have to change me. If you realize that you ‘re the problem, then you can change yourself,  learn something and grow wiser. Most people want everyone else in the world to change but themselves. Let me tell you, it’s easier to change yourself than everyone else”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“The avoidance of money  is just as psychotic as being attached to money” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#7 For those moments when emotions like fear or anxiety seem to gain control…

“Emotions are what make us human. Make us real. The word ’emotion’ stands for energy in motion. Be truthful about your emotions, and use your mind and emotions in your favour, not against yourself. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“‘Will a job be the best solution to this fear (the fear of not having enough money) over the long run?’ In my opinion, the answer is ‘no’. Especially when you look over a person’s lifetime. A job is really a short-term solution to a long-term problem” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“I want to teach you to master the power of money. Not ne afraid of it. And they don’t teach you that in school. If you don’t learn it, you become a slave to money”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“Once a person stops searching for information and knowledge of one’s self, ignorance sets in. That struggle is a moment-to-moment decision- to learn to open or close one’s mind.” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“Unfortunately for many people, school is the end, not the beginning” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#12 Understanding assets and liabilities:

“Rich people acquire assets. The poor and middle class acquire liabilities they think are assets” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“An asset puts money in your pocket. A liability takes money from your pocket” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#14 Are you in a debt?, keeep this in mind…

“If you find yourself in a hole. Stop digging” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“Mind your own business. Financial struggle is often directly the result of people working all their life for someone else. Many people will have nothing at the end of their working days”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#16About Professions, Businesses and your Career….

“There is a big difference between your profession and your business. I often ask people “What is your business?” And they will say “Oh, I’m a banker”. Then, I ask them if they own the bank? And they usually respond “No, I work there” (…)  A problem with school is that you often become what you study (…) The mistale in becoming what you study is that too many people forget to mind their own business. They spend their lives minding someone else’s business and making that person rich” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).



“When I say mind your own business, I mean to build and keep your asset column strong”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“We all have tremendous potential and we all are blessed with gifts. Yet, the one thing that hold us back is some degree of self-doubt” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“In the real world outside of academics, something more than just grades is required (…) This factor, whatever it is labeled, ultimately decides one’s future more than school grades ” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“Often, in the real world is not the smart that get ahead, but the bold” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“I’d rather be welcoming change than dreading change”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“Land was wealth 300 years ago. So the person who owned the land owned the wealth. Then, it was factories and production, and America rose to dominance. TODAY, it is information. And the person who has the most timely information owns the wealth” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#23 For people who refuse to change…

“Old ideas are their biggest liability. It is a liability simply because they fail to realize that while that idea or way of doing something was an asset yesterday, yesterday is gone”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“Rich people are often creative and take calculated risks”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#25 – Reasons to increase your financial intelligence…

“Few people realize that luck is created. Just as money is. And if you want to be luckier and create money instead of working hard, then your financial intelligence is important. If you are the kind of person who is waiting for the “right” thing to happen, you might wait for a long time. It’s like waiting for all the traffic lights to be green for five miles before starting the trip”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“The single most powerful asset we all have is our mind. If it’s trained well, it can create enormour wealth (…) An untrained mind can also create extreme poverty that lasts lifetimes by teaching it to their families” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).



“So why develop your financial genius? Only you can answer that (…) I develop my financial IQ because I want to participate in the fastest game and the biggest game in the world. (…) That is why I invest in my financial intelligence, developing the most powerful asset I have. I want to be with people moving boldly forward. I do not want with those left behind.”  (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“Simple math and common sense is all that is needed to do well financially”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


“Great opportunities are not seen with your yes, they are seen with your mind. Most people never get wealthy because they are not trained financially to recognize opportunities right in front of them (…) To find an opportunity that everyone else has missed. You see with your mind what others miss with their eyes”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#29 – Taking the road to financial freedom…

“Always remember to have fun. This is only a game. Sometimes you win and sometimes you learn. But have fun. Most people never win because they are more afraid of losing. That is why I found school so silly. In school we learn that mistakes are bad, and we are punished for making them. Yet, if you look at the way humans are designed to learn, we learn by making mistakes. We learn to walk by falling down. If we never fell down, we would never walk. The same is true for learning to ride a bike. (…) The same is true for getting rich. Unfortunately, the main reason most people are not reach is because they are terrified of losing. Winners are not afraid of losing. But losers are. Failure is part of the process of success. People who avoid failure also avoid success” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).


  “It is what you know that is your greatest wealth. It is what you do not know that is your greatest risk. There is always risk, so learn to manage risk instead of avoid it.”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

 #31 – What is financial Intelligence?

 “Financial intelligence is a synergy of accounting, investing, marketing and law. Combine those four technical skills and making money with money is easier. “(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#32 – About a “JOB”

“Job is an acronym for Just Over Broke” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Workers work hard enough to not be fired, and owners pay just enough so that workers won’t quit” And if you look at the pay scales of most companies, again I would say there is a degree of truth in that statement” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


” The net results is that most workers never get ahead. They do what they’ve taught to do: “get a secure job.” Most workers focus on working for oay and benefits that reward them in the short term, but is often disastrous in the long run” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

 #35 – Before choosing your career path…

“Instead I recommend to young people to seek work for what they will learn, more than what they will earn. Look down the road at what skills they want to acqure before choosing a specific profession and before getting trapped in the “Rat Race”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

 #36 – What is the Rat Race??

“Once people are trapped in the lifelong process of billpaying, they become like those little hamsters running around in those little metal wheels. Their little furry legs are spinning furiously, the wheel is turning furiusly, but come tomorrow morning, they’ll still be in the same cage: great job”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#37 – So, what to do??

“When I speak to adults who want to earn more money, I always recommend the same thing (…) Often I recommend joining a network marketing company, also called multilevel marketing, if they ant to learn sales skills. Some of these companies have excellent training programs that help people get over their fear of failure and rejection, which are the main reasons people are unsuccesful. EDUCATION is more valuable than money, in the long run”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“The reason so many talented people are poor is because they focus on building a “better hamburguer” (using the example of McDonald’s) and know little to nothing about business systems” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“My poor dad said, “you need to know a lot about one specialty.” My rich dad said, “you need to learn a little about a lot of things”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Poor dad wanted me to specialize. That was his view on how to be paid more. Even after being told by the governor of Hawaii that he could no longer work in state government (…) He never understood that the more specialized you become, the more you are trapped and dependent on that specialty”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“The main management skills needed for success are: 1. The management of cashflow; 2, The management of systems (including yourself and time with family); 3. The management of people”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“It is communication skills such as writing, speaking and negotiating that are crucial to a life of success” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Rich dad encouraged Mike and me to know a little about a lot. He encouraged us to work with people smarter than we were and to bring smart people together to work as a team. Today it would be called a synergy of professional specialties”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“If you hate risk and worry…. start early”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“The greatest reason for lack of financial success was because most people played it too safe. “People are so afraid of losing that they lose” were my rich dad’s words” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Rich dad knew that failure would only make him stronger and smarter”  (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Failure inspires winners and failure defeat losers. It is the biggest secret of winners”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“The main reason that over 90 percent of the American publis struggles financially is because they play not to lose. They don’t play to win” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“If you have little money and you want to be rich, you must first be “focused”, not “balanced”. If you look at anyone successful, at the start they were not balanced. Balanced people go nowhere. They stay in one spot. To make progress, you must first go unbalanced. Just look at how you make progress walking” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“If you have any desire to be rich, you must focus. Put a lot of your eggs in a few baskets. Do not do what poor and middle-class people do: put thir few eggs in many baskets” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Staking the asset column is a high-attitude game.  It takes guts, patience and a great attitude toward failure. Losers aoid failing. And failure turns losers into winers”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“How do you beat laziness? The answer is a little greed. IT’s that radio station WII-FM, which stands for ‘What’s In It-For Me?’ A person needs to sit and ask, “What’s in it for me if I’m healthy, sexy and good looking?”or “what would my life be like if I never had to work again?” Without that little greed, the desire to have something better, progress is not made. Our world progresses because we all desire a better life (…) So whenever you find yourself avoiding something you knwo you should be doing, then the only thing to ask yourself is “What’s in it for me?”Be a little greedy. It’s the best cure for laziness. ” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Do what you feel in your heart to be right -for you’ll be criticized anyway.  You’ll b damned if you do, and damned if you don’t “- Eleanor Roosevelt. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Arrogance is ego plus ignorance. (…) When you know you are ignorant in a subject, start educating yourself by finding an expert in the field or find a book on the subject”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


 “Most people simply buy investments rather than first invest in learning about investing” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Arrogant or critical people are often people with low se lf-steem who are afraid of taking risks”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“I would say that one of the hardest things about wealth building is to be true to yourself and be willing to not go along with the crowd. (…) As we used to say as surfers: “There is always another way.”  People who hurry and catch a wave late usually are the ones who wipe out”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“You become what you study” In other words be careful about what you study and learn, because your mind is so powerful that you become what you put in your head”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Put into action what you learn”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“A lesson that I learned from my rich dad was that “the world push you around.” The world ushes people around not because other people are bullies, but because the individual lcks internal control and discipline. People who lack internal fortitude often become victims of those who have self-discipline”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#61 -Starting your own business?

“The three most important management skills to start your own business are: 1. Management of cashflow; 2. Management of people; 3. Management of personal time (…) The three matter in the way you live your life as an individual, or as part of a family, a business, a charitable organization, a city or a nation” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Use pressure to inspire your financial genious to come up with new ways of making more money and then  pay your bills. (…) The rich know that savings are only used to create more money, not to pay bills” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“The real skill is to manage and pay well the people who are smarter than you in some technical area.(…) Why? Because if, and I do mean IF, the people are professionals, their services should make you money. And the more money they make, the more money I make (…) That is financial intelligence”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


 “Too often today, we focus  to borrowing money to get the things we want instead of focusing on creating money. One is easier in the short term, but harder in the long term (…) Remember, the easy road often becomes hard, and the hard road often becomes easy”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“To be a master of money, you need to be smarter than it. Then money will do as it is told. It will obey you. Instead of being a slave to it, you will be the master of it. That is financial intelligence”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“If you want something, you FIRST need to give” (…) Whenever you feel ‘short’ or in “need” of something, give what you want first and it will come back in buckets”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“There are powers in this world that are much smarter than we are. You can get there on your own, but it’s easier with the help of powers to be. All you need to be is generous with what you have, and the powers will be generous to you” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Stop doing what you are doing. In other words, take a break and asses what is working and what is not working. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. Stop doing what is not working and look for something new to do”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Take responsibility for your finances or take orders all your life. You’re either a master of money or a slave to it” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Take Action! – Find someone who has done what you want to do, take classes and buy tapes (…) Action always beats inaction” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Profits are made when you buy, not when you sell”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Buy the pie and cut it in pieces (…) If you want to get richer, think bigger first”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Money is only an idea. If you want more money simply change your thinking. Every self-made person started small with an idea, then turned it into something big. It takes only a few dollars to start and grow into something big”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Education and wisdom about money are important. Start early. Buy a book. Go to a seminar. Practice. Start small” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“It’s what is in your head what determines what is in your hands. Money is only an idea. There is a great book Think and Grow Rich. The tittle is not work hard and grow rich. Learn to have money work hard for you and your life will be easier and happier.”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Today, don’t play it safe, play it smart”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)


“Awaken the financial genious that lies within you. Your genious is waiting to come out” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

After 4 days reading this book again, I’ve to admit I felt
a bit bumped when Robert said “Thank You for reading this book”
it is such a good book and there is so much great info that
I didn’t want to finish it. But, at the same time… There are more
books to read and knowledge to acquire.

As You might very well understand now, Your mindset is your biggest asset
fill it with the right information. But also, it’s not only about new information
and learning but also about TAKING ACTION towards the new things
you learn.

I hope you understand that “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” it is not about
real estateor the share market.  Robert gives this as his examples because
it is his business and his passion and he knows how to play the game of money.

Whatever your career is, and the path you have chosen – or ar about to choose-
make sure you add in some of the skills Robert mentions all along his book
and that I’ve tried to quote in this post.

Remember… TAKE ACTION towards the opportunites in front of you!

That is  what I did to get out of my “rat race”, and now I’m able to work
from home -or wherever I happen to be- from my computer, build my
empire. It is normal to feel confused at the beginning, it is normal to feel
fear and it is normal to fail. Failure is the way to success and as long
as you Learn, it is not failure. So TAKE ACTION, do it for yourself
for the life you deserve and for what you want to achieve. I share some of the
the education I’ve acquired about building my own business,
marketing, branding, selling on my private facebook group that you can access for free.
So you can learn some vital steps to Succeed in business!

A Quick Guide To Finding Your Purpose in Life in 5 Minutes

Have you ever asked yourself “What is my life purpose?”,
or “how do I find my purpose in life?”. I bet you have….

I have, and it has been a whole transition to finally
meet and understand my life purpose. It can be confusing
at times, specially when you really love helping people
but what you want to do does not align with what -at that
certain moment- you know. Does that make sense to you?

Let me explain: As a Medical Doctor, I LOVED taking care
of my patients, I am a nurturing person by nature BUT
by doing this I was leaving behind other areas of my life
like, my family. Specifically, my Mum.

Also, I was leaving behind my own freedom. Which to
me meant having the ability to travel and visit new places,
or just taking my mum out for dinner without worrying about
my schedules. Instead, I spent most of my time on my shifts,
day ant night, sometimes without even seeing my mum or
dedicating some time to myself. See, everything needs to be
in balance.

Eventually -if you know my story- my mother passed away
and everything happened very quickly. Within 21 days.
Sometimes life hits us HARD, but sometimes WE NEED
those hits to make us get out of our own “dope cycle”,
the “rat race” – you name it-.

So I decided to do something different, I didn’t know what
but I knew I Had to…. long story short and fast forwarding
I became an Online Entrepreneur. My business aligns
to my Life Purpose which is: Helping others transform
their lives, creating a life of Total Fulfillment.


It is actually very easy to find your life purpose, in fact,
it is easier than we think. But as adults we tend  to look
for the complicated and intricated things that we wind
up making everything unnecessarily complex.

Yes, it is good to examine your life and see how things
are going every certain time BUT, if you spend most of
your time examining your life, then you are not living!
And… what’s the point of that??

Life is meant to be LIVEDLife-is-meant-to-be-lived-wealthypreneurs.

A Quick Guide To Finding Your Purpose in Life in 5 Minutes

This is how you can know your life purpose in the next 5 minutes:

finding your life purpose in 5 minutes wealthypreneurs



Take some time and ask yourself:  Who am I? 


What do you LOVE to do? What is that ONE THING that
right now, when you think of it you feel empowered, motivated
and qualified to teach others.


In other words, Who are you trying to help?
What problem are you trying to solve?


Or… What Problem are YOU solving by teaching them
the things you know?
How does it benefit THEM  what you have to offer?
What is it that THEY WANT and you can help them achieve it?


What is the result of it? How do they change or transform as
a result of what You give them/teach them/offer them?
