3 Tips for Crafting a Vision for Growth
As interviewed: Robert Kiyosaki, author Rich Dad, Poor Dad
For a small business looking beyond the horizon of today’s tight credit and sales
environment, what three tips would you share on crafting a vision for future growth?
1. Learn how to “print your own money” by creating an artifact—a tangible
asset like a book, game, product or service—that you can use to drive cash flow
and grow your business.
2. Understand and appreciate the power of leverage, whether it’s your banker’s
money, maximizing the asset value of an idea, or partnering with other
companies or organizations to leverage their expertise or core competencies.
3. Keep pushing and investing in PR and marketing, especially when other
businesses are cutting back. When the dust settles, you’ll have captured both
market share and confidence.
