He then goes on to describe the different forms of entities you can form to operate under, and clearly explains the pros and cons behind each one. Some are really no different than operating under your own name. Garrett labels these 'bad entities' and steers you clear of them. The remaining 'good entities' are explained, with many examples, so you can find one that fits your particular situation. There is no 'one size fits all', as the examples will make quite clear.
Asset protection, tax benefits, estate planning, succession planning, these are all covered in enough detail to be useful, but not so much that your eyes glaze over. This book is no replacement for an attorney's advice, or a CPA's, and Garrett is also very clear on this. It will, however, give you a leg up so when you do talk to your own advisor(s), they will not need to explain every little concept to you, and if you get billed by the hour, then this book will save you many hours.
Highly recommended, and a credit to the Rich Dad Advisor series.
I've been a Rich Dad books reader and Kiyosaki mentioned Sutton a few times as part of his advisory team. When I saw that he released this book, I knew I had to have it for my personal library. And it didn't disappoint. Still one of my favorite books along with the latter release, Run Your Own Corporation.
If you're even thinking of starting a business, this is the book to read. And once you decide to start, I highly recommend the companion book, "Run Your Own Corpoation."
I like the author's writing style very much; exact and precise.
This is a must buy book.
