A good quote says, "the only person who will take care of the older you someday is the younger you today." When we are young, we frequently put off thinking about retirement and prefer to worry about it later. However, our strength will not forever serve us well. Nevertheless, if we desire our future to be more promising, we must thoughtfully prepare for it. 

 

Moreover, a self-directed IRA is a recommended type of individual retirement account that allows you to save for retirement with assets that are off-limits for conventional IRAs. Thus, we must seek a more profound knowledge of it since many individuals who don't utilize self-directed IRAs are unaware of it. We must also surround ourselves with like-minded people who are willing to share their failures and successes.  Their journey can teach us vicariously to learn and grow in life, knowledge, and skills. As our guest speaker says, "financial literacy is not taught in schools, but our future depends on understanding it."

Key Takeaways:

"So, to get tax protection, you have to follow certain rules and avoid the prohibited transaction." – Kaaren Hall

 

"Your IRA isn't going to lend money to your spouse, so they can open a business because that's a disallowed person receiving a present benefit from your retirement account." – Kaaren Hall

 

"Don't just pick any asset. You have to understand the assets and risks." – Kaaren Hall

 

"With more freedom, there's more risk." – Kaaren Hall
