The Rich Dad, Poor Dad Year End Christmas Holiday Giveway. Thank You 22Readers! (Technorati) Technorati | (Del.icio.us) Del.icio.us | (Digg) Digg | (Blinklist) Blinklist | (Comment) Comments (15)

As 2006 comes to a close, we here at 22Dollars.com want to take this opportunity to thank all our readers for making the site what it is today. We have received countless emails from readers scattered near and far expressing their kind words with respect to the site. We hope you enjoy the site and continue to read and find different ways to save and make money in 2007.

As a token of our appreciation, we wanted to give something back to our readers. What we settled on this year for the 22Dollars Holiday Bonus gift was one of the most inspiring and influential books I have ever read on the differences in the way each social-economic class approaches business, money and life. The book is titled Rich Dad, Poor Dad written by Robert T. Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter. A book about what the rich teach their kids about money that the poor and middle class do not. A BRAND NEW copy of Rich Dad, Poor Dad will be given away to one lucky reader of 22Dollars to be drawn at random this coming Friday (Dec. 22nd).

The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money. The result is that people learn to work for money...but never to have money work for them.

Rich Dad, Poor Dad was the book that helped me to think outside the box at a very young age and eventually lead to the foundation of BlueEye Design Co. (the company which I founded a couple years ago). Today BlueEye is larger than ever and continues to grow at an alarming pace and I have this book to thank for helping me see what they do not teach you about money in school. It is striking how much this book related to me and my life on a personal level. Every chapter I could directly relate to myself and virtually everyone that I know.

Now it is our turn to give this gift to one of our readers. A BRAND NEW copy of Rich Dad, Poor Dad will be given away. The winner will be notified this Friday via email and this updated post so be sure to check back then.

Learn to exercise your brain financially. Do not say to yourself "I can not afford that", but rather ask yourself the question "How can I afford that"?

You need only leave a comment (below) to be included in our Friday raffle drawing for the book and I encourage everyone interested to participate. 22Dollars will cover all the costs associated with getting the book to you - so don't worry, it's totally FREE and our way of saying thank you for a great 2006 and passing along this great financial resource.

UPDATE (Dec. 21, 2006): Just a reminder that today is your last chance to get into the drawing for Rich Dad, Poor Dad. Our servers were down for some time yesterday and we apologize for anyone trying to comment then who had difficulties.

UPDATE (Dec. 22, 2006): The winner of the Rich Dad, Poor Dad raffle was drawn at 9:00am EST this morning and we would like to extend our congratulations to Paul Stamatiou! We hope everyone has a great holiday and prosperous new year! Here's to 2007 - Cheers!

Sounds interesting. I'm in.

Count me in as well. I'm trying to increase my business savvy in case I ever pursue one of the ideas I've been thinking about, in the form of a startup.

Paul, I would highly recommend this book in your case. The first 50 pages changed the way I thought about business and work (for the better I hope).

What would you think if someone told you the worst advice you could ever give your kids is to "go to school, study hard, get a degree and then you will find a stable, high paying job". I found it just fascinating.

Count me in. This has been on my reading list for a while, but I've not gotten around to it - the reading list is a busy place. :)

Dec. 18, 2006

I'm in. Been reading and reviewing a lot of business books on my blog right now, and I'll probably add this one to the list.

Christian, your review on Trump's new book (How to Get Rich) saved me money ;-) Thanks!

Sounds like an interesting read and one that sheds some light on how our past (upbringing) molds our future (in this case, our investment decisions).

I'm always looking for perspective on what shaped my financial habits.

I'm in.

The book is awesome, I read it years ago when still in middle school and it really helped learning what rich peoples mindsets are. You need to think outside of the box, the one you are so used to and taught in school.
