Since launching The Rich Dad Company with her husband, Robert, in 1996, Kim realized there was a huge void for women when it came to financial education. As Kim says, “When it comes to money, what we women have been taught is to not take care of ourselves, but to depend upon a husband, family member or government for our financial well-being.”

“What we teach is not just about money, it’s about freedom; the freedom to live the life you want.”

When Kim (Meyer) Kiyosaki left her home in Oregon and moved to Hawaii to attend college, she had no idea that her move to the Islands would transform her life in every way... and set the course for a future that would transform the lives of millions. Like many college freshmen, she planned to go to school, graduate, get a job, work, and begin the steady climb to the top of some corporate ladder. That was the path she had been taught.

While working at an advertising agency in Honolulu, Kim discovered that she did not excel as an employee. She was actually fired not once, but twice. She also knew there had to be something more to life than going to work every day, getting a paycheck, and paying her bills. Her search began.

And this is her journey…

Kim wanted her own business, but she did not grow up around business owners. In 1984 she met her husband-to-be, Robert Kiyosaki. He and his friends were all entrepreneurs of various businesses. They all encouraged and supported her in becoming an entrepreneur. She had her first business that year. From there she and Robert went on to build several businesses, the most well-known and successful being The Rich Dad Company.

The first product of The Rich Dad Company that she and Robert created was the CASHFLOW® board game. They wanted to teach people about money and investing in a way that would be fun and entertaining. Kim’s vision is to have tens of thousands of CASHFLOW Clubs throughout the world, where people get together on a regular basis and teach one another the principles and real-world practices of financial education, investing, and financial freedom.


Kim began investing in 1989 with a small 2-bedroom, 1-bath rental house in Portland, Oregon. Real estate is her investment of choice. Today Kim is a professional investor and, using the same formula as her first rental property, she and Robert have thousands of rental properties, as well as hotels, golf courses, commercial properties, and other business investments.

The bottom line, says Kim, is that, “Rich Dad and Rich Woman are not just about being financially rich. We’re about being rich in all ways possible.”
