Running on Empty? | By: Jeffery Watson

It happened again. I just finished a conversation with a business professional, and the subject of our individual professional pursuits came up. When this individual learned that I work with people who choose to self-direct their retirement accounts, he was very interested. He shared with me the struggles he has had even being able to fund his retirement account because the economic troubles from the real estate recession left him making four mortgage payments at the same time.

It is a conversation that has been repeated over and over again. Baby boomers are figuratively “running on empty” into their retirement years and are beginning to realize just how unprepared they are. What do I mean by “running on empty”? I mean they have no plan, no strategy and no investments in their retirement accounts. The balance in the typical baby boomer’s account, if said account exists, is near zero. The amount of money they are setting aside monthly to go toward their retirement is near zero. Their long-term, strategic retirement plans on which they are actively and aggressively working are nonexistent.

If, by some chance, you or someone you know is “running on empty” towards retirement and WANT to do something about it, then you owe it to yourself or that person to check out the Self-Directed IRA Training.

During the training, there will be information about how another investor has done a deal with as little as $300 that is yielding a tremendous rate of return.

This IRA event will be unlike any other for many reasons. The content will be focused around a series of practical deals in which various types of self-directed accounts can be involved – IRAs, 401(k)s, HSAs, and CESAs. The education will include information on buying real estate with a self-directed account, lending money from a self-directed account, obtaining options, and doing partial note sales.

Join me at the August 8 General Meeting for an introduction, and then on Saturday, August 19, for a one-day NON-SELLING Advanced Training Intensive on Investing With Self-Directed IRAs.
