What the CASHFLOW® Game Teaches You
In the CASHFLOW® game, you learn to invest for both cashflow and capital gains because that is what investors do and speculators do not. It teaches you to take risks, make some mistakes and learn from them with play money. Robert suggests playing this game once a month for 12 months to embed the principles and learnings from the game.
We run our game on the north side of Brisbane, Australia on the 3rd Sunday of the month from 2pm-4:30pm. There is no fee to play the game. You can register by connecting with us on Facebook at Lets Play Cashflow – Brisbane or just fill in the form at the bottom of this page and I’ll send you the details.
Why play this game?
This is what Robert says about the importance of improving your financial IQ.
“How well we do in life depends upon how well we handle our money problems, and that depends directly upon our financial IQ. The higher our financial IQ, the better able we are to handle our financial problems. The good news is that we grow richer by solving our money problems.
“So many people come up to me and say, “Tell me what to do,” or “Give me the answer.” My rich dad said, “The only place where there are right answers is in school.” What he meant by this is that many people come out of school looking for the right answers to life. Many people come out of school waiting for someone to tell them what to do. It is these people who subscribe to “You should get a safe secure job, work hard, save money, get out of debt, and invest for the long term in a well-diversified portfolio of mutual funds.” Like sheep, these people blindly follow the shepherd believing the shepherd has the right answers.
“Henry Ford once said, “Thinking is the hardest work there is. That is why so few people engage in it.” If you are going to be an entrepreneur or an active investor, you will need to think… not follow. Thinking and solving money problems requires financial IQ. The good news is, the more problems you solve, the higher your financial IQ. And the higher your financial IQ, the richer you become.
“The purpose of this game is not to give you answers. It is not to tell you what to invest in. Money is a gigantic subject with so many ways to become wealthy. The purpose of this game is to first, inspire you to learn more and think more clearly about money. Secondly, this game is to empower you to find the right answers for you, knowing that what is right today may not be right tomorrow. As you know, things change as you change.”
