BUCKHANNON – Cha-ching! A Cashflow Club is coming to the Buckhannon community within the next several weeks.
Beginning Feb. 16, the Cashflow Club will meet every Sunday at 4 p.m. in the West Virginia Wesleyan College Library and is open to anyone who wants to learn more about business and finances.
Agustin Rossi, currently in the master’s in business administration program at West Virginia Wesleyan College, graduated with a business administration degree in May 2019 and wanted to start the club as a way to teach people in the area how to invest their money in a way that benefits them the most.
Rossi, who hopes to start his own business in the future, was first exposed to the game by his father at home in Argentina.
“Cashflow is a board game that teaches people how to invest, and it teaches about finances and accounting and I think it’s important for people to know what to do with their money and have a chance to invest it,” Rossi said.
Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, created the Cashflow board game in 1996. Since then, Cashflow Clubs have been popping up around the world. According to Meetup, there are currently 63 groups in the U.S., and there are 3,500 clubs worldwide, according to richdad.com.
“[Kiyosaki] explains the education system is not the best because they teach us how to be employees or serve employers, but they never teach us how to be business owners or investors,” Rossi said.
The game gives players the mindset and vocabulary they would use in finance, accounting and investing. The first part of the game, Cashflow 101, is for beginners, while second section, Cashflow 202, is for more advanced players.
