From this article about Trump's get-rich-quick books:
In both Why We Want You to Be Rich and Midas Touch, Trump and Kiyosaki discourage their readers from taking jobs and "working hard" for money when they can become entrepreneurs and investors.
"When Donald and I think about working hard," Kiyosaki writes in Why We Want You to Be Rich, "while we both work hard individually, we mostly think about other people working hard for us to help make us rich."
Kiyosaki uses the acronym "OPT," or "other people’s time," to describe this method of getting rich. Likewise, Kiyosaki and Trump employ "OPM," or "other people’s money," in reference to taking out loans for investments, recommending their readers take on "good debt" in pursuit of becoming rich. They encourage readers to invest in real estate, oil companies, and gold and silver mines, while discouraging investment in any and all mutual funds.
