Today's episode is an intro to the self-directed IRA. Did you know you can buy cryptocurrencies within an IRA and get tax-free gains on the growth? Or other alternative investments, like cattle, race horses or precious metals.
Log onto E*Trade and try to buy investment real estate within your IRA. You can't do it. And that's why you need to self-direct.
Jordan Sheppherd has helped hundreds of people set up self-directed IRAs and solo 401(k) plans. He's an expert in this stuff and he's a really cool dude.
Self-direction is an amazing opportunity that I believe all self-employed people should take advantage of. But don't take my word for it; check out this episode and find out for yourself.
Disclosure: I hired Jordan to set up my solo 401(k) a few years back, and it was the single most important decision I've made in my retirement planning process.
