How Bellum Tan became Rich Dad Asia

Rich Dad Asia

Have you ever wondered how Bellum Tan became Rich Dad Asia™? Here is his fascinating story:

Bellum Tan started up as a turnkey contractor in marine and offshore engineering. He had always been entrepreneurial since he was nine. When he was young, he stayed in a kampong, or small village. His family owned about four acres of land and planted many fruit trees, such as rambutan, jackfruit, mango, etc. Often after school, together with his cousins, Bellum would pluck the fruits from the tree, put them in a basket, and roam around the kampong to sell them.

After college, Bellum gave himself five years to work for others as an Employee (E) to learn the trade. While working for others, he was very helpful and volunteered his service to other departments, as he wanted to learn the business as much as he could. Soon, he started his first company, a part-time business. Then success begat success and he became a successful contractor. He was already rich by the time he attended his first seminar with Robert Kiyosaki in 1992.

Life-Changing question

At that seminar, Robert asked the audience one question that Bellum said changed his life: What is the true job of an entrepreneur?

Bellum realized that working hard is not enough. He had built a business by working 18 hours a day. He practically had no time for anything else. And when there’s a problem, he had to go and fix it himself. Like a typical entrepreneur, Bellum did everything himself because no one else can do it better than he could. As he said, it seemed that instead of his employees working for him, he was actually working for his employees. He was, in essence, Self-Employed (S).

In that seminar, Bellum learned that a true business owner should be able to leave his business for several months and come back and still find it running well. The secret to business is systems. Developing systems for all aspects of running the business is the main job of an entrepreneur. This way, he can hire and train employees who can run his business by following those systems.

Becoming a B and I

Today, Bellum’s companies are being operated by his staff. Now, he has more time to run other businesses. In fact, his peers are always surprised he has all the time in the world to have long lunches with them while they hurry off to go back to their office. By understanding and applying Rich Dad principles, Bellum became a true Business Owner (B). With over 30 years experience in operating a group of companies, Bellum has successfully applied Rich Dad to attain financial, time, and location freedom.

Since meeting Robert in 1992, Bellum has since then practiced everything he learned by actively investing in real estate in the early ’90s and has gone into investing with Robert and his team in providing seed funding for a few companies that have successfully gone public, including mining companies. Now, Bellum is classified as a Level-5 Investor as defined in Robert’s book “CASHFLOW® Quadrant”, making him a true Investor (I).

He has honed his investment skills through businesses, real estate, and venture capital funding. So Bellum has successfully moved from the E (Employed) and S (Self-Employed) quadrants to the B (Business Owner) and I (Investor) quadrants.

Ambassador in Asia

In 2002, Robert surprised Bellum by inviting him to become his Rich Dad Ambassador in Asia. Robert initiated that Bellum and his wife Doreen should start RichDad Training (S.E.A) Pte Ltd. Of course Bellum agreed. To him, being the first to be acknowledged by Robert out of the hundreds of thousands of people he has met in Asia to pass on the philosophy of Rich Dad was a great honor. Bellum saw that there was a real need for people in the region to be better educated financially. Cashflow Technologies and Robert appointed and authorized Bellum to conduct CASHFLOW® seminars and workshops in Asia teaching the Rich Dad concept.

Soon, Bellum became so adept at running Robert’s famous  CASHFLOW® 101 board game and seminar that he even created  ”The Singapore Strategy”. He shared this strategy with the Rich Dad organization in Phoenix, Arizona, where he surprised everyone during the “Strategic Conference Seminar” with the millions of dollars created as a result.

CASHFLOW® 101 was created for people starting off from the left of the CASHFLOW® Quadrant: the “E” and “S” side (Employee and Self-Employed). However, Robert Kiyosaki classified Bellum Tan’s strategy as coming from “B” and “I” side of the Quadrant (Business and Investor). In doing so, Bellum brought participants of CASHFLOW® 101 to a higher level, and taught them how to invest from the right side of the quadrant, the side of the rich.

Very often I am being ask!

Bellum Tan

Very often I am being ask . How do I start to invest. Do I start with real estate or do I start with the stock markets. If I don’t have the money how am I going to get started.

” Pay attention to the investment areas that you find most interesting. It’s crucial you choose the asset that best suits your personality, values and lifestyle. After all, being an investor is a lifelong activity so you want to find something that you’ll actually like to study ” Quote Kim Kiyosaki.

Once one of Robert Kiyosaki Rich Dad point this out to Kim Kiyosaki when they were thinking to produce their Cashflow Game and they don’t have the money to do

so. Frank Cerie told Kim ” Only LAZY people use their own money to start their business.

A true enterpreur don’t use their own money to get started. That promt KIm and Robert to raise the fund to kick of the production of Cashflow Game in Bali.

THE RICH DAD

The author, Robert Kiyosaki, wrote that it was when he was nine years old that he started realizing that his rich dad made much more sense than his poor dad. It was from rich dad that the author learned not to say, “I can’t afford it”, but instead to ask, “how can I afford it?” He explains this principle by relating an incident when he and his best friend Mike went to work for Mike’s father. Rich dad paid them very low wages deliberately so that would stir anger and a sense of injustice in them and eventually for them to realize that in order to get ahead, one must work for himself and not for others. For example, in that part of the book when the author complains to rich dad that he can hardly afford to buy anything with the wages he is paid, rich dad tells him that he shouldn’t dwell on the fact that his wages are low, but instead ask “how can I make more money” because this stimulates the brain to take action. His rich dad says that when someone says, “I can’t afford it”, his brain stops working. It therefore kills initiative and promotes passivity.

The author adds that while his poor dad invested time and effort in education, he did not have any knowledge on investing. His rich dad, by contrast, was very skilled in the investment game because that’s all he did. The attitude of his rich dad about money was manifested in the saying “the lack of money is the root of all evil” (his poor dad, on the other hand, believed that the love of money is the root of all evil).

According to the author, rich dad also nurtured the idea that taxes punished producers and rewarded the non-producers. He was the type who encouraged money talk at the dinner table and was portrayed by the author as someone who learned to manage risk, instead of not taking risks.

THE POOR DAD

The author, Robert Kiyosaki, compares his poor dad to the millions of fathers who encourage their sons to do well in school so they could get a good job with a good company. Poor dad believed in the traditional principles of working hard, saving money, and not buying material things that one cannot afford. He believed that having a good job with a solid company is what one should aspire for; hence he expresses disappointment when his son leaves the employ of a large, reputable corporation.

Poor dad looks to education as the passport to success. He held a doctorate degree, went to Ivy League universities, but was always struggling financially. He believed he would never be a rich man and the author points out that this became a self-fulfilling prophecy. Poor dad was more interested in a good education than the subject of money. The author wrote that his poor dad would always say things like, “I’m not interested in money” or “money doesn’t matter.”

The author points out that poor dad was preoccupied with things like job tenure and security, Social Security, vacation and sick leaves, company insurance and salary raises and promotions. The author felt that his poor dad was more interested in these factors rather than on the job itself. This is what the author calls being trapped in the Rat Race. His poor dad worked hard incessantly but somehow never made it ahead financially. Poor dad’s approach to the subject of money was based on working hard to have enough money to pay the bills (in contrast to rich dad’s approach to make one’s money work for him).
