El Segundo, CA (PRWEB) January 02, 2013
In its second annual "12 Days of Finance" poll to find readers' choice for their favorite personal finance expert, Go Banking Rates announces that Robert Kiyosaki has come in first place.
After 31 days of voting, and an intense battle for the #1 spot between Kiyosaki and Dave Ramsey, Go Banking Rates readers ultimately chose Kiyosaki as the Most Popular Finance Expert of 2012.
Robert Kiyosaki, synonymous with the "Rich Dad" empire, once again boasts the most loyal and expansive following among the 12 experts chosen to participate, which also included Suze Orman, Dave Ramsey, David Bach, Ramit Sethi, Clark Howard, J.D. Roth, Jean Chatsky, Philip Taylor, Farnoosh Torabi, Ric Edelman, and Liz Weston. Claiming more than half the votes, Robert Kiyosaki was the clear winner.
Kiyosaki’s advice is unconventional and often incites a passionate response, whether in agreement or opposition. Further, in a time of continued unemployment and market downturn, Americans are abandoning the conventional avenues to achieving wealth and embracing Kiyosaki’s fearless, entrepreneurial approach. The unorthodox nature of the Rich Dad ideology just may be the key to its popularity, and the reason why Kiyosaki has won the 12 Days of Finance poll two years in a row.

Go Banking Rates pitted Kiyosaki against 11 other world-renowned personal finance experts, including Suze Orman, Dave Ramsey and Clark Howard, to determine who readers consider to be the most important voice in the finance world. Readers voted each day in December for their favorite finance expert.
After taking the 2011 title, Robert Kiyosaki became an expert contributor to Go Banking Rates, lending advice and a unique financial perspective to Go Banking Rates readers. In his articles, he shares financial teachings that emphasize financial freedom through investment, entrepreneurship and financial literacy.
