If there is a great learning game or tool that I would introduce to people to learn about financial education, it would definitely be Cashflow 101. Rich Dad’s Cashflow 101 is a financial education board game that teaches you financial literacy. I really had so much fun learning playing the game with others that I felt that it has been one of my best investments in purchasing the board game.
The game teaches you similar lessons in ones personal financial real life experience such as accumulating wealth such as investing in real estate, business, stocks, gold, mutual funds, handling debts and managing your expenses. The wonderful objective of the game is to simply accumulate passive income(income generated from your investments in areas such as real estate and business)such that it will be more than your total expenses. Once you have reach this stage in the game, it will enable you to get out of the rat race in the game and you can be considered as financially free in the game.
When I first played the game, it took me more that two hours if I remembered vividly to understand the game. As I understand more about the game, it creates great excitement when I played the game. I realized that my financial education knowledge increases as I played the game more. I began understand the significance terms in our personal finances such as assets, liabilities, doing small and big deals, ROI and so much more great education in the game. In developing a home business, the game enabled individuals like me to understand the importance of starting small but dream big to reach your goals.
The factor that I like most about Cashflow 101is I am able to play and learn together about financial education through this game. Just like any game, you will strategize differently to get out of the rat race as soon as possible to financially free in the game. Similarly, in running a home business, the game enables one to think and strategize the plan to develop the business further.
Aside from handling my personal financing in the game, I learn another fantastic learning lesson from the game. It is the art of handling and coping with your emotional intelligence in the game. When you play with 5 or more players, you are able to learn from each other emotions in the game. It seemed surreal to me at time. I learn that in business and personal finance, one has to handle his emotions well when dealing with investments.
In the game, I realized that the responsibility in the decision making in my investments lies in me. I am responsible for where I will be in the game. It made me realized that handling emotions well is certainly important in running not only a home business but other factors in life too. The beautiful part of such great financial board game, it enabled one to make mistakes in the game and learn to be more effective in dealing with real life situations thereafter.
