However you want to incorporate that into the paper is fine.

Teacher requested us to read “Rich Dad, Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money by Robert T. Kiyosaki. I don’t have time to read this book while working and dealing with my other classes. The paper is NOT a book report. He wants us to apply concepts from the book to create a personal wealth plan for my life. We are to NOT summarize the book into the paper. I don’t care how the paper is written because you won’t know my life wealth plan goals. I’m currently paying for my college tuition; full time, working part time government job making $24 currently. I have $40k saved currently. My goal is to graduate, find a full time job in maybe the aerospace industry and be able to make enough to live comfortably and invest in some properties and be able to travel and have a family. However you want to incorporate that into the paper is fine. If you have questions please let me know. Thank you!
