So I was at my favorite Starbucks the other day down here in South Beach, Miami doing some work as I often do a few days a week. Being a Home Business Owner is great but sometimes you just need to get out of the home office once and awhile to mix things up a bit. Not to mention, Starbucks resembles a virtual office environment more and more these days. Entrepreneurs on lap tops drinking coffee everywhere you turn.

Anyways, I couldn't help but over hear what appeared to be a "job" team meeting going on that was led by the office manager for this particular company. She was literally reading a set of rules and procedures to these folks about what they could and could not do in the office that sounded more like a 2nd grade orientation than a meeting amongst grown employees. I was actually pretty shocked.

So I couldn't help but think about 2 things:

1. How thankful I am to be a full time, self employed Home Business Owner and Entrepreneur that does not have to abide by those rules ;) and...

2. The famous Cash Flow Quadrant.

If you're not familiar with the Cash Flow Quadrant you really need to be. This revolutionary concept was created by best selling author, financial expert and multi-millionaire Entrepreneur Robert Kiyosaki and has allowed him to go on to sell 20 million books world wide as a result.

In a nut shell...

The Cash Flow Quadrant is made up of 4 different types of people who make up the world of business - ALL 4 with completely different types of core values. If you haven't seen it, it looks like this:

E for Employees (the folks at Starbucks)

S for Small Business Owners or Home Business Owners (You)

B for Big Business Owners (Donald Trump)

I for Investors (Hopefully You)

Kiyosaki says there is "a whole new set of rules out there for those who want to be rich." Rules many are still not aware of, believe it or not.

Chances are the folks at Starbucks who were having those rules and procedures read to them have no idea that the S, the B or the I Quadrants are even available to them.

So of all the business models Robert Kiyosaki supports within the Cash Flow Quadrant, the "Direct Sales" Business Model is his favorite and he calls it the perfect business model of the 21st Century. He says: "Its not money that makes you rich, its business skills" and this is the industry where those skills are taught from the ground up, without the big price tag.

Kiyosaki also mentions the importance of control. If you're not actively building a business you have very little control. This is an incredibly important point and one that should not be taken lightly.

Because remember, "its not money that makes you rich, its business skills" and many of those skills can be taught in the Direct Sales industry.
