It has been almost 6 months since I left the day to day responsibilities of The Rich Dad Company. As many know, I started my mortgage company but I didn’t totally disconnect from Rich Dad, I have been an advanced Trainer for Rich Dad Education. I do this 1-2 weekends a month, as I have always loved to teach. In fact, when leaving the Rich Dad Company, Robert and Kim gave me their blessing to teach Rich Dad as they always believed that my gift was that of being a teacher.
Unfortunately, due to circumstances outside of my control, some have the notion that it is no longer ‘politically correct’ for me to be a teacher at Rich Dad Education. Hence a power surge, one that the management of Rich Dad Education has gracefully fought off. I truly appreciate their belief that management decisions (i.e. termination) should be made based on performance challenges and not based on political party lines.
Since I can be at cause or at effect of everything, I have a choice in how I handle this. Do I cry foul and play the victim and allow this drama to continue in my life and others (RDE management), or do I take this and use it to create new opportunities. That was when the thought of a power surge came to mind. Just like a power surge protector, over time that surge protector will wear down…that is not the primary challenge. Just un-plug and plug into another source of power. What a concept.
So that is what I did, I used this opportunity to find a new class room where I can hone my teaching/speaking skills. While the cause of the power surge may think they won or something like that, there is no impact to all their power surges if there is nothing plugged in.
