Robert Kiyosaki, Kim Kiyosaki, and Sharon Lechter have gone
on to create many other products and seminar programs under their Rich Dad
Company, a financial education company that offers many great services.
Hereís what he had to say about the help he received from
booking ads in Radio/TV Interview Report:
The interviews I received were an immense kick-start to
the success of my book Rich Dad Poor Dad. By
doing radio and TV interviews on a regular basis promoting my book, doors
throughout the publishing world opened to me. Your company gave me the initial
boost I needed to create momentum and sell my first 250,000 copies ó a
monumental task for any self publisher. To date, weíve sold more than 10 million
copies of Rich Dad Poor Dad worldwide. My book
is now available in 38 languages and 80 countries. Iíve been on the
New York Times bestseller list for more than two years. Warner Books is
now our publisher and the momentum continues to build. In a few weeks Iíll be
presenting another live seminar ó only this one will be at Madison Square Garden!
In 2006, Robert began Rich Publishing to publish his wife's
book, Rich Woman, as well as other books including Why We Want You to
Be Rich: Two MenóOne Message by himself and Donald Trump. Both books went on to be bestsellers.
