How To Invest With NO MONEY Down: Turn $0 Into Infinite Returns -Robert Kiyosaki (Millennial Money)


(upbeat music) – Hello, millennials and all generations. This is Millennial Money,
featuring Robert Kiyosaki. I’m your host, Alexandra Gonzalez. You know Robert as the best selling author of the number one personal
finance book of all time, “Rich Dad, Poor Dad.” But I’m happy to announce
that Robert just released his brand new book, “Fake: Fake Money, Fake
Teachers, Fake Assets.” You can get your copy
by following the link in the description below. This topic was highly
requested by you guys. So, due to popular demand,
in today’s Millennial Money, we’ll be covering how to invest with OPM or other people’s money. Here’s how Robert explains OPM. – It was a long time ago
– Yeah. – when I first started Millennial Money, and I made my usual wise-ass remark, “Only lazy people use their own money.” And that’s because I have spent much of my life raising capital. You know, today you have
crowdfunding and all that stuff, but the reason I had to
learn to raise money was because I had no money. And so, if you read “Rich Dad, Poor Dad,” in there my rich dad always said, “Never say I can’t afford it.” And it was my rich dad and many of my teachers
subsequent to that, that said, “Lazy people
always say I can’t afford it. “I don’t have the money. “That’s why they’re poor.” They have a poor mindset. So, instead of figuring
out how to raise money, it’s just really easy to be a loser, and I call them losers. It pisses them off because
we all have the power, if we wanted to, to not be poor if we learned how to raise money. So, I hear, you know, and
the reason I get upset, I still get hot like this. (Alexandra laughs) My poor dad, my PhD Father, he always said to me, he says, “You know, I’d be a rich man
if I didn’t have you kids.” And I said, “Well, you know, dad, “it’s not my fault you had kids.” You know, I mean, “You know, I just can’t afford
it because I have kids.” And the more he said
that, the angrier I got. So my rich dad, at age nine, he says, “Well, that’s
why your old man’s poor, “because he’s lazy. “He thinks his PhD is gonna carry him.” He says everybody can
say, “I don’t have money. “I can’t afford it.” He says, “That’s why he’s poor. “He’s lazy.” But my father kept going
back to school, you know, Stanford University,
Chicago, Northwestern; he never learned any of this stuff. They still don’t know it. Because most teachers want a
pay check, pension, and tenure. They want job security. So the mindset is different. And that’s what they teach the kids. – Next, Robert tells us
the number one phrase that keeps people poor. Now pause, I want you
to leave a comment below if you know what it is. Don’t cheat. – So the reason I say only
lazy people use their own money is because it takes much more
intelligence to raise capital. And so I’ve never been able,
ever since my rich dad, since a little boy, my
rich dad forbade me from ever saying I can’t afford it. He says figure out how you can afford it. “How can you do something?” Figure out how you can do something. So, over my lifetime, most
of the projects I’ve started, I’ve never had any money. I like not having money, because it forces me to
think; I get creative. I have to educate myself, I
have to talk to rich guys. “How’d you do this? “How’d you do that? “How you do that?” And what has happened to me, and I just turned 72, I’ve never needed money. Because if I need money, I
figure out how to raise it. So today you guys have
crowdfunding and all that. I mean, I don’t know what that stuff is. But it’s easy to say, “I can’t afford it.” All the poor people say,
“I can’t afford it.” All the poor people say,
“Well, let’s tax the rich.” All the poor people are saying, “Well, give me a free education,
free food, free schooling, “free manicures, free pedicures.” There’s laziness, my opinion. – One of my favorite
things that Robert teaches is how your mindset can
literally change everything. If you have an open mindset, you can really change your life. So Robert explains how his
mindset changed how he invests. – So, you know, over my lifetime, I’ve raised hundreds
of millions of dollars. And it’s because I didn’t
have money as a young person that I learned how to raise capital. And it’s really quite simple. You have to find an asset that’s worth more than me, you know. If they can’t invest in me,
because that’s called slavery, you know, by me, you know? So what I do is, when I started off, I write about it in “Fake,” I started off looking for this one little piece of real estate. I found an excuse, you know, this one bedroom, one bath
condominium on the beach in Maui. And I found an excuse for
people to give me the money. All I had to do is assure
them I’d pay them back. So my first deal was an
infinite return deal. I had no money in the deal
because it was 100% debt. It was an $18,000 condo. You can’t touch them
for that much any more, but the economy was bad. So I buy this $18,000 condo;
the guy wanted 10% down, you know? You don’t need higher math. 10% of 18,000 is how much, sports fans? 1800 dollars. I could’ve use my money, I had the money. But that would be too easy. – Robert tells us lazy
people use their own money. Let’s find out exactly
what he means by this. – Only lazy people use their own money and that’s what really pissed
off a lot of people out there. Go, “You calling me lazy?” I said, “Yes, I am.” Because you’re the same
type of person will say, “I can’t afford it. “I can’t do that.” That’s the problem. It’s up here; it’s a real
estate between this ear and that ear. “I can’t do that.” Most of my family say, “Oh,
yeah, I can’t afford it.” My father taught to say that;
my mother taught to say that. My rich dad said I should never say that. Let me ask you this question. You know, you work for
the Rich Dad company. How much of my money is in this company? – Zero. – Zero. Zero. – When using OPM, one
question I had for Robert was what happens if the deal goes wrong? He answers by telling the story of one of his biggest mistakes. – So, the biggest mistake. So, I was doing very well here. This was 1973, I started
buying my first deal. And that was an $18,000 deal. $1800 down, $25 a month. Cash flow.
– Cash flow. – I was infinite. And then I kept doing that,
I had a lot of property. And then I decided I go here. So my first business was a nylon and Velcro surfer wallet business. And it didn’t sell. So you know, everybody knows
what those wallets are today. But back then this is 1974 or five. Yeah, ’75. They didn’t know what the wallets were. So we’re going broke really fast. We bought 100,000 of
these wallets from Korea. We ship it to our
warehouse in Long Island, and we’re borrowing
money from our investors. So we raised about $600,000; I got this little goofy
wallet business up. So we’re in serious trouble. I owed my father about $200,000, my rich dad was laughing at me. We’re going broke so quickly. Because we couldn’t move the
wallets, a 100,000 of them. They were sitting on
this (murmurs) warehouse on Long Island. And nobody would buy them from us. So then the good thing about
stupidity, there it is, makes you smarter. So I started thinking;
we started thinking. Said what’s wrong? And I said, what was happening
in the world at that time, all the baby boomers are fat,
so they had to start running. So jogging was coming online, you know, and nobody jogged before. You know, so these guys are all jogging. And then we’re reading the paper; we’re sitting in Honolulu,
going broke fast. And we read the paper, this jogger went to Golden Gate Park in San Francisco and was jogging around the park. And what the jogger did was he had no place to put his car key. So what did they do? He puts it on the front tire of his car and goes for a jog around the parks; we’re reading this newspaper. And voila, when he comes back to his car, the car wasn’t there! – Oh, gosh. – So the guy says, “They stole my car!” – Oh, my goodness. – And so the question was, on the headline of the newspaper article, “What does a jogger do with their key?” And so we sat there, said,
“Oh, my God, a problem. “A problem.” So with that, I designed the shoe pocket and you can see this picture right here. It’s Playboy magazine. I mean, she’s nice looking
young model with nothing on but a shoe pocket. (Alexandra laughs) But anyway. So we’re going broke so fast by then. But when that picture hit Playboy, suddenly, we were geniuses. And everybody started
throwing their money at us. And all this product,
our wallets were selling; our shoe pockets were selling. Investors were happy. And the sales went through the roof. So we were extremely successful. So we went from risk,
stupid, smarter, successful. But the problem was how do
we finance our inventory? Because the demand was worldwide, and we couldn’t keep up with demand. So I borrowed another $100,000. And I went to my CPA, my CFO, Stanley. So I said, “Stanley, will this $100,000 “solve our inventory problem?” He goes, “Yes, it will.” So I gave Stanley the check. And he ran off with it. – Oh, my goodness. – I had no signed documentation; I turned it over to him. He said I owed him the money. So that was one of my first, you know, six figure, seven figure mistakes. – This is another question all of you flooded our
comments with on YouTube, and all of Robert’s social media. It’s: what advice do
you have for millennials just starting out? Watch what Robert says. – Well, number one is investing; invest in what you love. I love business. I love real estate. I mean, I really love it;
I own this building here. And I love gold and silver. So I invest in what I love. Most people say, you
know, do what you love, but I’d rather invest in what I love. But I love being an
entrepreneur, I love investing. It’s like Shark Tank to me. I’m always looking at new
businesses, new deals. It’s just a game like this. You know, when you look at
the financial statement, that’s like your scorecard. It’s like your golf scorecard
is your financial statement. But as you know, our schools teach us nothing about financial statements. – Finally, we wrap up
our discussion about OPM with Robert’s final words for those of you that use the phrase, “I can’t afford it” as an excuse not to invest. – But it goes back to
the original question: Why did I say only lazy
people use their own money? Because lazy people always
say, “I can’t afford it.” You know, “I can’t do it.” It’s easy to say that. And that’s why they’re poor. It’s harder to go raise a million dollars than to say, “I can’t afford it.” – All right, guys, that’s it for today. But before you go, I
wanted to let you know of the new show we’re
launching, Weird Money. And this is gonna be our host, Derek. – Howdy, guys, I’m Derek. I’m gonna be hosting Weird Money on the Rich Dad YouTube channel, and I look forward to
talking to all of you about the most bizarre and
out of this world parts of our financial institutions, the economy, jobs, all that sort of stuff. And thank you, Alex, for introducing me. – Thanks, I’m really
looking forward to it. And well, guys, don’t forget to subscribe and hit the notification
bell if you wanna be notified on this new show. Bye, guys, see you later. (upbeat music)

  1. Debt is your money though so you are always using your own money. Just depends how you view it. Also, just because someone says they can't afford it doesn't mean that they are saying the can never afford it. Just means at that moment in time they can't afford it. Just like right now i can't afford a super yacht. It doesn't mean i'm not always trying to think of ways to finally afford one.

  2. I rather use my money, do all the jobs, save money and start the business, working hard to save the money, thats difficult, getting in debt is easy Robert. Also 9 out of 10 business fail, so why get in debt when the odds are against you. That is not smart, it could be smarter to get in debt only if the business is working and you need to buy assets to make you company more competitive. Still debt is dumb, you dont have to be to creative to ask for a loan.

  3. This guy had a rich dad but had no money lol having no money to him is probably having 20k in the bank lol there are people who don't even have $500 to invest it takes years to grow money with little money

  4. Ive learned something valuable from Robert that i never did in school. If you want to work for someone, this is not for you, but If you want to be your own boss, Read or watch all his video, guys. The answers are there.

  5. so instead of saying i can't afford it, how can and what are some ways to get per say 500k loan for something i want to invest in and start up?? any suggestions?

  6. Have seen his many videos but never understand anything,no one give hundred thousand now a days not sure what this guy did in his past life but I'm sure he is making money now from you tube

  7. so you are fucking telling me that you get a loan for $18000 on a property that generates $25 a month in cash flow and thats considered a good idea? how long is it going to take you to pay off that $18000 (oh wait interest also…). thats gonna take over 60 years

  8. Every video seems to have the same story. There is nothing new said. I wonder how he is able to repeat himself so much and not getting bored.

  9. I love this! And by the way? I remember when those velcro wallets first came out? We thought they were silly but it turns out that leather makes a lot of fellas break out in rash on their patooties. Velcro wallets would breathe. To this day, my husband only carries a velcro wallet.

  10. Contact heather_frx on Instagram or mail her on [email protected]

    need help about forex investment , Bitcoin hacking, bitcoin mining ,PayPal hack, credit score fix, credit card hack ,bank account,western union hack,money gram, instagram verification, facebook and many more..

  11. He bought a condo using his own money and he was making 25 bucks a month. So his first move to become rich was lazy and how do u make $25 a month just by purchasing a condo ….I'm pretty sure he leased it

  12. He is repeating same $25 story in every video…it was THEN…what about NOW, things are different , how to buy property when banks won't give you money if you don't make enough money to make downpayment ?!!!! His story are getting old !

  13. She works for Rich Dad Company? So is she a slave? Because he's not going to pay her because she will think like an employee 🤣🤣🤣

  14. People who don't understand Robert when he means poor dad rich dad. Poor dad is everyone who is not rich (wait for it) including middle class and millionaires who don't know how to budget or use good debt but uses bad debt. Infinite return means not using your money but still have loans that is bringing you money. His father who borrowed the 200K, had the wrong mentality of a poor thinker. Lets say his father had 400k in the bank or somewhere not safe. He is not having his money work for him instead he works for money. It is the mater of making money work for you, not you working for the money.

  15. WTF is really this? :O You call people lazy only because they are not smart enough to use other people's misery for their own comfort. If someone is killing you then are you lazy because someone could be victorious over you.
    The food you are eating and warm in the house that you use is produced by the people whom you call lazy. Someone must work but cheating the system so you will not break the paragraphs from the law is what you call normal. This should all be banned so no one would be able to make other people's life hell and thinking that much good about themselves! You earn a lot but deserve nothing than dislike only.

  16. The no.1 phrase that keeps 99.9% of people poor is "I can't do that". What they need to say is "How can I do that?", "What does it take?" or "Why should I do that?".

  17. "You are poor because you can't afford it"…. "That's the mindset of a poor person". It's like telling a person that you don't have money because you don't want money. I read a few of Robert's books, I went to his seminar and it's telling you the same thing in all of his books, it's all about the "mindset". He makes money from his books that tell you absolutely nothing about finance. People are curious about it, buy it and that's how you produce cash flow. He is a really good salesman… that's about it.

  18. The problem is …he said he borrowed 200k us dollars in the 1970s…usd1 dollar in 1970 is usd6.6 dollars avg in year 2020…it will be 1.2 million us dollars in year 2020 today…many dad's don't have that money to borrow their kids …and I bet the bank won't borrow you that amount either when u have nothing or even if you had a PhD …so this is absolutely misleading….

  19. Hard to say you don't need any money. You need some money to put up but use mostly other people's money mainly banks. Your cap rate is really affected if you don't have 10% to out down.

  20. I got this credit repair team who helped me build my LLC Credit profile account because early last year I was looking to build a very strong business credit profile. They raised score 668 to 850 ‪in three weeks‬, added 5 primaries & 3 AU’s. My business ‘ALL SPORTS AND PROMOTIONS LLC credit profile is now an excellent one. Thanks to them and you can keep in touch with him on (908) 509-6596

  21. I had my credit greatly loaded with late payment and charged off account. I understood the damage I had done to my credit and that’s why I contacted …(908) 509-6596…..He analyzed my credit and then replied me after two hours because he was so busy attending to someone else I was pleased with the progress when I checked my report after two weeks so you can also work with him and he will help you out ⁉🔅

  22. Respect your credit score and respect your creditors.I only have three credit cards I use daily to continue to build credit. Mark David specialist has definitely heightened my score immensely. Thank you for a great program. Best funds I have ever spent. Contact him via his email above or you text him directly on 9085096596..

  23. uh what is this infinite loop? are you borrowing with zero perfect or something, or from a rich dad that doesn't charge interest..? banks wont loan me money to start a real estate business, and for the little amoutn they do loan me, the interest rates are high, and my money out > money in from rent

  24. What is the best product or brand to understanding see some improvements in your life especially financially? I read plenty of great reviews on the net about how exactly Mofedest Miracle will help you discover see some improvements in your life especially financially. Has anybody tried using this popular law of attraction system that designed by famous motivator?

  25. In 2020, so many financial experts are saying that global debt is so great that the system will soon have to crash. There is talk of inflation and hyperinflation. Many good investors say that masses of debt can only be solved through currency reform or war. Now let's rule out war. If monetary reform were to come, how would debts and assets be offset against the new currency? Let's assume that 1000 of today's currency would then equal 1 of the new currency. In contrast to debt: 1000 of today's currency would equal 10 of the new currency. Suppose I am financing a property for 200,000 with debt today. So after the predicted currency reform I would not have 200 debts but 2000. How would the experts at Rich Dad assess this situation? Thx and greetings.

  26. Lol im suprised Millennials support Robert. He has STRICT Conservative values. Wanting free equals LAZINESS. #Bernie 😂

  27. So when your accountant stole your money……how did you pay back your investors? By claiming Bankruptcy and screwing them over…….then starting over with another suckers money

  28. Robert did not answer how to make money, just how he did it. Basically he bought a home with noe money, (luck), then rented it out, to cover running cost, then sold it with profit. Then he hit the jackpot again, with the key pocket in shoes.

    I would not listen to this guy, because it does not work for average people. I might sound negative, but I am a realist.
    Belive me, the world is different than 1970. Today everyone know about the tricks how to make money, like they did in 1970. When everybody trying to buy cheap homes, to flip or keep for long run, the prices will go up. This is what is happening in Europe, and most likely in USA as well. Many people trying to make extra money, and the competition is hard. The one with most money get the homes.

    I am no rich guy, but have read a lot about business. I would recommend the following:
    1. Save some money to invest.
    2. Learn about stocks, and invest. Be ware you can loose money fast, but if you spread the risk, it will be more change to succeed.
    3. If you want to start a business, find out what you want to do. It is money in any business, just be good at something.
    4. You can start a business, and still invest in stocks. Multiple source of income.
    5. Get som network going. Talk to people. Go to entrepreneur meetings where investors are also.
    6. Start a business, with a rich guy/investor.
    7. In my opinion, nobody gets rich with no help. So get help, get to know people with money, people that want to invest in or with you.
    8. Keep the money in the company, do not use the money. You can subtract most things, so you do not pay tax, and then you grow your business.
    9. When the business is earning money, normally it takes 3-5 years, keep the money in the business to reinvest and grow.
    10. Your business, can invest in other businesses/services, or even co-working. Let say you own a carpenters company. You make good money. Now you can cooperate with a plumber company, or even buy it after a few years. Adding value.

  29. I've watched several of his videos trying to get some good info but just hear alot of nothing. They're just commercials to buy his program.

  30. I learned nothing from this video… with 0 money u have just your imaginations in your head and 0 results. If l am in dept and fail how l am going to pay them back? Or should l ask for more debt to other people?

  31. 2:00
    My dad said the same thing to me and my siblings when we were kids.
    "I'd be rich if it wasn't for you kids." Well? who's fault was that to not wear a condom?

  32. Borrowing money in South Africa is as easy as levitation these days. So no option here to get rich off debt. We are forced to be lazy and work for our money 😂
