Robert Kiyosaki in his book, “Rich Dad’s Increase Your Financial IQ” wrote about protecting your money.  Most of us would think of this topic as asset protection.  Maybe estate planning or corporate structures, etc.  Instead Robert wrote about all the parties who can’t wait to get their hands in your pockets.Robert’s “Rich Dad” taught him that the thieves to a farmer are “bunnies, birds, and bugs.”  The farmer needs to ...
