Main Points:

  • The IRS allows you to invest in assets outside the stock market. Things like real estate, private equity, precious metals, and private lending.
  • You can have complete control of your retirement funds. You are not obligated to use a financial planner, or hope that Wall Street will secure your retirement.
  • The IRS gave us an amazing gift. The gift of Tax Free investing via a Roth IRA and Roth 401K
  • The Solo 401K is an outstanding vehicle for people wanting to use leverage in their real estate investing
  • Mentorship and education is vital to your success. Find a self-directed IRA custodian that will serve that role
  • Self-Directed IRAs and Solo 401K plans are very versatile. They can take title to assets, they can partner, they can borrow, and they can lend.
  • The IRS has rules about investing with retirement funds. Know the rules, and follow the rules. You don’t want to commit a prohibited transaction
