Default Is "Rich Dad" real?

For many years, I read that Robert Kiyosaki's "Rich Dad" (in his "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" book) was fiction... made up... not real... and that Robert Kiyosaki was a liar...

That is, until I read about his real "rich dad."

Apparently, one of Robert Kiyosaki's best friends in high school (on the big island of Hawaii) was a guy named Alan Kimi. Alan's dad's name was Richard. Richard Kimi was Robert Kiyosaki's real "rich dad."

Richard Kimi died in 2009. After his dad passed away, Alan Kimi revealed that Robert Kiyosaki had learned a lot from his dad, and that his dad, Richard Kimi, was the guy Kiyosaki based his "rich dad" on.

Richard Kimi was a failure - just kidding! He was successful businessman and entrepreneur. His family had a surplus goods store, which, after World War II, was struggling.

Richard Kimi and his brothers took the unsold Army equipment from the surplus store and used it to build low-rent housing. From there, he ended up owning a series of successful hotels all over Hawaii. Richard Kimi also bought the Waikiki Biltmore Hotel, on Waikiki beach, which is now the site of the Hyatt Regency hotel.

You can find more info about Richard Kimi, the real "rich dad," here...

Now, I gotta get some golfing... I mean, get some work done!
