Cate’s Top Recent Books
I’m an avid reader/book listener. I’m sharing a few books that shifted my thinking this year. Our brains want to expand with the expanding universe. One of the biggest expansions came from the not just reading a few of the Rich Dad, Poor Dad books, but also playing Cashflow by Robert T. Kiyosaki. I love how by Kiyosaki gamified his life’s learning around financial freedom in a boardgame.
2017 was a big year for us. Winston finished building our house. We moved in. We realized his design was spectacular to live in, as well as being super energy efficient. With the help of playing Cashflow I plan on helping Winston develop another business in Work/Home designs.
White Hot Truth was sent to me by Danielle LaPorte’s team before our interview. In reading White Hot Truth I realized how evolved our spiritual evolutionaries have become. How out of the box we are. How many of us there are, and how we truly are a driving force in humanity’s awakening… and that we can do it, be it, with all the style we desire to muster.
These are a few of my highlights of books in 2017:

Rich Dad’s Increase Your Financial IQ: Get Smarter with Your Money
Many of our global economic problems started in 1971…when President Richard Nixon took the U.S. off the gold standard. Throughout history, when a government went off the gold standard, an age of turbulence began.
In 1997, Robert’s book Rich Dad Poor Dad stunned readers stating, “Your house is not an asset.” As howls of protest went up around the world, the book went on to become an international bestseller and the #1 personal finance book of all time.
Rich Dad Poor Dad is not a book on real estate. It is a book about the importance of financial education. Rich Dad Poor Dad was written to prepare you and your loved ones for the financial turbulence Robert’s rich dad saw coming.
In 2007, as homes declined in value or were lost to foreclosure, millions of homeowners painfully discovered the wisdom of words of Robert’s rich dad. Today we are all aware that a home can be a liability. Today we know a home can go up or down in value. Today, we all know a person can lose money investing in the stock market. Today we all know our money can go down in value and that even savers can be losers.
This is why financial intelligence is more important today than ever before. In a world of financial turbulence, your best asset is financial IQ.
Rich Dad’s Cashflow Quadrant: Rich Dad’s Guide to Financial Freedom
Rich Dad’s CASHFLOW Quadrant is a guide to financial freedom. It’s the second book in the Rich Dad Series and reveals how some people work less, earn more, pay less in taxes, and learn to become financially free.
CASHFLOW Quadrant was written for those who are ready to move beyond job security and enter the world of financial freedom. It’s for those who want to make significant changes in their lives and take control of their financial future.
Robert believes that the reason most people struggle financially is because they’ve been spent years in school but were never been taught about money. Robert’s rich dad taught him that this lack of financial education is why so many people work so hard all their lives for money… instead of learning how to make money work for them.
This book will change the way you think about jobs, careers, and owning your own business and inspire you to learn the rules of money that the rich use to build and grow their wealth.
The Ego is the Enemy
The instant Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and international bestseller
“While the history books are filled with tales of obsessive visionary geniuses who remade the world in their image with sheer, almost irrational force, I’ve found that history is also made by individuals who fought their egos at every turn, who eschewed the spotlight, and who put their higher goals above their desire for recognition.” —from the prologue
Many of us insist the main impediment to a full, successful life is the outside world. In fact, the most common enemy lies within: our ego. Early in our careers, it impedes learning and the cultivation of talent. With success, it can blind us to our faults and sow future problems. In failure, it magnifies each blow and makes recovery more difficult. At every stage, ego holds us back.
Ego Is the Enemy draws on a vast array of stories and examples, from literature to philosophy to history. We meet fascinating figures such as George Marshall, Jackie Robinson, Katharine Graham, Bill Belichick, and Eleanor Roosevelt, who all reached the highest levels of power and success by conquering their own egos. Their strategies and tactics can be ours as well.
In an era that glorifies social media, reality TV, and other forms of shameless self-promotion, the battle against ego must be fought on many fronts. Armed with the lessons in this book, as Holiday writes, “you will be less invested in the story you tell about your own specialness, and as a result, you will be liberated to accomplish the world-changing work you’ve set out to achieve.”
