Duane Harden just doesn’t teach you theory but rather you learn through his very own life hands-on experiences that come along with building a strong portfolio of successful businesses, including residential and commercial real estate, a restaurant, a music company, and many more. He began with no financial education, but he was determined and inspired. Today he leads a Cash Flow Club where he mentors entrepreneurs on how to start and grow their business so they, too, can become financially free.
His latest book is 5 Easy Steps to Financial Freedom: Do What You Love & Get Rich Doing It.

If you hate your job and feel stuck in life, and believe that your skills, education, or lack of finances prevent you from taking a chance on something new, then you need to read 5 Easy Steps to Financial Freedom: Do What You Love & Get Rich Doing It by Duane Harden.
Conversationally written, and peppered with humorous drawings, helpful worksheets, and key tips, 5 Easy Steps to Financial Freedom: Do What You Love & Get Rich Doing It shows you to do nothing short of changing your life. Harden helps you figure out what your passions are and how to turn them into profitable businesses. When you love what you do, he says, it isn’t work and any business then becomes a real pleasure. Because attitude is everything, Harden demonstrates how to say yes to opportunity, yes to financial freedom and no to the naysayers who would pull you down while trying to elevate themselves (he calls this a crab pot mentality). Practice the Law of Attraction, he advises, by putting up vision boards around you that have photographs of the things you want in your life. If you imagine yourself rich and happy and doing what you love, you attract those things to you. Plus, you are more likely to go out and do the concrete things you need to do to make that life a reality.
Harden doesn’t just advise. He practices what he preaches. His 90-day action plan comes from Harden’s own reading, attending seminars, completing home-study courses, and pursuing a variety of his very own life experiences, including purchasing numerous real-estate properties. His “Life Assignments” can help you to begin to think and act differently. His “Keys” point out truths about learning to live a wealthier life style. Rich people are not afraid to take chances, he says, and those chances always pay off.
From putting your financial house in order to discovering what really makes you tick, 5 Easy Steps to Financial Freedom will change your life and make you wealthy while doing it.

Q: What was your most favorite chapter to write and why?
“Chapter 6: Crabs in a Pot” as I found a humorous way to talk about people and their opinions of you and what you’re doing in life.
Q: Why did you feel you had to write this book?
“Give and it shall be given unto you!” is one of the “Keys To Life” I teach and is the inspiration for writing “5 Easy Steps To Financial Freedom: Do What You Love & Get Rich Doing It.”
In 2003, I formed a Rich Dad, Poor Dad Cash Flow Club in Manhattan. I must be honest I formed this group purely for selfish reasons. I reached a point in my real estate investing career where I began to doubt my talents. I wanted to surround myself with positive like-minded people that would be a sounding board for my ideas. Today, that group has grown to over 600 registered members. We meet once a month to reenergize ourselves to go back out into the world to pursue our dreams. I volunteer as the leader of this group. Our mission is to learn and share techniques we can use in business, real estate investing and the market. These are the core concepts you learn from reading the Rich Dad book by Robert Kiyosaki. It’s free to be a member of the group and all that we ask is that what you learn you share with someone else. Pay it forward.
I realized early on the wealth principle of giving back. As the leader of the cash flow club, I’ve experienced the impact that our group has had on its members and our community. We’re changing the World one bank account at a time. I then thought what if there was a way that our teachings could impact more than just my neighborhood. During one of my summer vacations in Ibiza, Spain I completed writing my book with the intention that everyone can chose to have financial freedom in his or her life. Again, another key I teach is “live in the world of abundance and not scarcity”. I know there is plenty of wealth to go around and I’m not afraid of spreading it. My book assist the reader in unlocking God given talents and figuring out how to turn passions into profits. I would leave this earth a happy man knowing I was part of the catalyst that rids our society of poverty.
Q: Now, some fun questions – What deep dark secret would you like to share with us?
I’m the laziest guy you would ever want to meet.
Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Morocco as I find the culture very interesting.
Q: Are you a morning person or a night person?
Q: Are there any members in your family who also like to write?
Q: As a child, were you a dreamer?
That’s what lazy people do, we day dream. J
Q: Last but not least, the magic genie has granted you one wish. What would that be?
To get rid of poverty in our society.
Q: Thank you so much for this interview! Do you have any final words?
Let what you do be for others. When they get it … you get it and the planet shifts in the right direction.
