Robert Kiyosaki

Check out the Principles of “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” (link).

The most interesting thing I learnt in one of these wonderful videos is that active income (going to a job) can make you pay 50% of the income in taxes, while the tax levied on passive income (income from a business) can be legally brought down to 0%!

Another thing I learnt is the "Cone of Learning” devised by Edgar Dale. Here are a few links you can take a look at the cone of learning, and learn more about it.
