Has it been that long?  I apologize for my long absence to my small, yet loyal, following.  I have a feeling that over the past few months a lot more Accidental Entrepreneurs have emerged.  With the economy slowly reviving, I hear the stories and feel the pain of my fellow future entrepreneurs.  I was doing quite well, then hit a wall…just like many of you, I felt the air, and the energy knocked out of me.

This past weekend, I attended Rich Dad, Poor Dad’s Get Smarter With Your Money conference/seminar.  Robert Kiyosaki, his wife Kim and his team of advisers spoke on investing in commodities (gold/silver, oil/gas), real estate (commercial, apartments, short sales, foreclosures), options trading, and creating a financial plan.  They also spoke extensively on the importance of having a good accountant, attorney and tax consultant, as well as specialists in the area you want to go, such as a Realtor specializing in short sales.

Apologies for the delay…I didn’t realize I’d been off the grid for a whole month!  I have a good reason, though — I’ve been very busy shaping up my little company and taking it to the next level.  Various opportunities require various forms of ID.  Most of it is free and easy, but it took awhile to figure it out, find it and fill it out.  Even though not everyone needs all of this information all of the time, I advise all of my fellow Accidental Entrepreneurs to take the time now and put it all in place – just in case.  Here’s what I’ve learned:
