Here’s The NEW WAY To Unlock The Explosive Power Hidden In Your IRA And 401(k) Money To Build A Better Future.
…Even if you have no idea what investments
you should buy in these weird times!
This letter is about a completely different approach to taking control of your IRA and 401(k) money that eliminates the need to “pick the winning horse” in our unpredictable economy, eliminates the need to spend hundreds of hours “due diligence-ing” investment deals, eliminates the need to make things complicated and messy, and quite frankly …just may work better than anything you’ve ever seen.
“Is It IMMORAL To Access Your Money So Easily?”
I almost fell out of my chair when he asked me that.
The guy was an executive for a Self-Directed IRA custodian company and his job was to sell horribly limiting custodian accounts to naive investors who didn’t know any better.
We were talking shop and after a great deal of prodding from him, I’d finally showed him under the hood of the my IRA/401k system that he was sent to investigate.
This system had already “unlocked” hundreds of millions of dollars of people’s IRA/401k money, and the cost of using it was peanuts compared to what he was charging his poor clients.
Here he was charging millions of dollars every year to investors who rarely (if ever) saw the kind of IRA/401k results they hoped for …and my little homespun creation had rendered his entire corporation (and dozens just like it) completely obsolete.
He was shocked, flabbergasted, skeptical, and desperate to know more.
It Started With A Discovery
I Made Eight Years Ago
I was 24 years old, and was looking at early retirement because I’d just finished selling all my investment properties I’d worked hard to acquire. I saw the real estate bubble burst coming and took action to avoid getting slaughtered.
I was in a great place financially, but the road that got me there was completely crazy!
Peeking behind the curtain of the investment industry showed me just how crazy and full of liars it really was. They thrived on an uninformed public.
I found out that most people don’t even know what an IRA is capable of doing… not the financial planners, bankers, real estate agents, gold brokers, or even the IRA custodians.
They were all so busy focusing on their own success, nobody ever bothered to piece all their information together and ask “how can this benefit the investor?”
You’ll never believe how much this can cost you—and how much money you can save and put right into your pocket by kicking out the greedy sharks currently frenzy-feeding on your IRA and 401(k) accounts out back—while a salesman in a suit out front distracts you with glossy brochures, statements, reports, charts, news channels and ANYTHING to keep you from peeking around back to see what’s really happening to your 401k/IRAs.
“Um, sir, you can’t go
through that door.”
Well I say, c’mon let’s have a look.
First off, I’ve got to point out that the giant, nasty lie plaguing almost all IRA/401k money.
“Invest with us. We’ll beat the market.”
That’s the idea behind the family of mutual funds any particular IRA or 401k is tied down to.
By buying a mutual fund you’re buying into the hopes that the fund manager will have stock-picking abilities better than yours. The only problem…
A whopping 96% of actively managed mutual funds fail to beat the market over any sustained period of time!
There are 7,707 different mutual funds in the U.S., compared to only 4,900 individual stocks.
And 96% of them fail to match or beat the market over any extended period of time.
“The market” really means a stock index, or collection of stocks like the S&P 500.
Just HOW MUCH Are
They Taking From You?
Check this out…
Over a 20 year period, 1993 through 2013, the S&P 500 stock index returned an average annual return of 9.28%. But the average mutual fund investor made just over 2.54%, according to Dalbar, one of the leading research firms.
An 80% Difference!
In real life, this can mean the difference between retiring well and struggling to survive.
Plus, get this…
The average cost of owning a mutual fund is 3.17% per year!
That’s 2000% higher fees than what index funds have, and they’re charging it for worse performance!
Fees add up too. If you invest $100,000 over a period of 30 years, assuming a 8% return, yields vastly different results:
With 1% annual fee: $761,225
With 2% annual fee: $574,349
With 3% annual fee: $432,194
By paying excessive fees, up to 50% or more of your nest egg is being taken from you.
“Get Me OUT Of Here!”
It’s enough to drive you mad… which spawns a whole industry of alternative investments.
These are people who will sell you real estate deals, physical gold and silver, private lending contracts, hedge funds, and a whole array of investments that you can buy with your IRA/401k money—IF you setup an account with a Self-Directed IRA Custodian.
…That’s a company that gives you a different type of IRA where they will administer the money transfers for many alternative investments.
For example, they can handle your IRA money buying an investment property, such as a house that gets rented out, and the rent gets paid to your IRA.
Which brings me to….
The Dirty Secret of The
Self-Directed IRA Custodians
These corporations exist primarily on web sites with back offices of paper pushers in cubicles and a few cushy corner executive offices.
Behind all their fancy web pictures of actors, working hard acting like happy retirees—ironic—is the truth that 9 out of 10 Self-Directed IRA investors are blocked from having the success they desire.
You read that right. Nine out of ten Self-Directed IRA investors fall flat on their face doing exactly what they thought would be better than staying in the shark-infested “Standard IRA/401k”.
Let’s take a…
Peek Inside What A SDIRA
Investment Deal Is REALLY Like
Chuck was fed up with Wall Street and knew he didn’t want 50-80% of his retirement money to be stolen by sharks.
So he searched on Google for “Self Directed IRA” and picked the company that seemed the best. It was a SDIRA custodian company that had been in business for 20 years.
It seemed pretty straightforward.
He opened his account and transferred his money into it.
Now all he needed to do what pick an investment and fill out of form to instruct the custodian to do the investment with his IRA money.
Chuck chose real estate, but the lessons you’re about to learn are the same no matter what your investment of choice.
Chuck found a house he could buy and rent out for an estimated 10% profit per year. Score!
It was listed for $168,000 and he just needed to buy it for $150,000 for it to be a good investment deal.
Next, he filled out the form telling his SDIRA Custodian to sign the contract to make an offer on the house and issue the “earnest money” deposit check. He offered $140,000.
Within a couple of days, his realtor called saying “Alright Chuck, we’ve got a counter-offer from the seller. $167,000.”
Listing Price: $168,000
Chuck’s Offer: $140,000
Seller’s Counter-Offer: $167,000
Ouch. If you’ve ever invested in real estate, this sounds familiar. Usually securing a deal involves a little dance of back and forth counter-offers before price and terms are agreed upon.
In this case, the seller was saying “I’m not budging.” But Chuck wasn’t about to give up. He knew the negotiation game and had played it well before.
The way Chuck figured it, the house needed some work to get it into better shape and he needed the seller to either A) lower the price to meet him at his desired $150,000 point, or B) replace the carpet, paint the house, and a few other repairs as part of the deal, prior to closing on it and trading the money for the title.
Because “Plan A” didn’t seem to be working, Chuck moved on to “Plan B.”
So he had his realtor draft up a counter-offer for $160,000 with a paragraph saying the seller would do the mentioned repairs prior to closing the deal.
A few days later, Chuck’s realtor called with, “Bad news. Your IRA Custodian won’t sign the counter-offer.”
“Why the heck not?”
“I don’t know. It just sounds like I’m talking to a secretary in a cubicle over there. They’re just reading a script from an employee manual and won’t let me talk to the real decision maker.”
That’s Right… You’re NOT The Decision
Maker With A Self-Directed IRA Custodian
“What a fraud!” thought Chuck.
He called his IRA Custodian to figure out what was going on.
“Why won’t you sign the counter-offer?”
“We’re not comfortable with the complexity of the terms of the contract you want us to sign.”
“WHAT?! Agreements to repairs are commonplace.”
But it was no use. They weren’t budging.
Little did he know, there was something lurking in the file cabinet 800 miles away at the SDIRA Custodian office.
A Terrible Disappointment
…That’s what countless investors get when they try to use their SDIRA.
In Chuck’s case, it was a flat out denial to do a transaction that just wasn’t “vanilla” enough. Or maybe it was because they just weren’t willing to handle all the counter-offers that were needed for Chuck to get a good deal.
This same outcome—future-smashing disappointment—comes in an endless variety of bitter flavors when dealing with a Self-Directed IRA Custodian company.
Sometimes it’s a denial to do the investment, at THEIR discretion. 98% of these are completely legal transactions that the custodian just vaguely says “We’re not comfortable with it.”
Sometimes it’s a lack of speed, where getting a response from the SDIRA Custodian is taking weeks and the deal contract expires. The seller just wants to move on to find a buyer that can close quickly.
Sometimes the Custodian loses or misappropriates your IRA money.
That’s what happened to Sherry.
“Sorry, Your Money
Sherry had already overcome the hurdles of getting an investment deal lined up and her IRA Custodian already signed the contracts.
All she was waiting on was for the IRA Custodian to wire her IRA money to the “closing table” so the attorneys could finish it.
Instead of the wire, she got a phone call that went like this:
"Sherry, we've got a problem."
"What is it?"
"Your IRA money was accidentally wired to the closing table of another client's deal."
"@#[email protected]#%! WHAAAT?!"
"We're very sorry. This rarely happens, but we made a mistake."
"What can we do about it?"
"We're going to sort it out. Just hang tight for a little bit."
Because it was such a hot investment deal, the contract said there was a $500 “pier diem” fee per day for delaying the closing.
Days went by. Then weeks.
30 days later, her IRA owed the seller $15,000 in “delayed closing” fees and ultimately still lost the deal.
That was the most painful thing. From this $350,000 investment deal, Sherry stood to double her money and make $350,000 of profit.
Instead of being up $350,000, she ended up down $15,000. Her Custodian cost her $365,000 between lost profits and hard fees..
Highly lucrative deals are rare, but when they are found the seller’s not going to wait around weeks for an IRA Custodian to finish chasing its tail.
It Ain’t So Pretty Behind
The Custodian Curtain
In thousands of my consultations, Self-Directed IRA investors would complain:
- “My custodian takes forever to process my requested transactions”
- “My custodian isn’t allowing the investment I want to do, even though it’s 100% legal”
- “My custodian charges me too much money”
- “Why am I paying to have yet another company limiting my IRA?”
These kinds of complaints are valid and certainly frustrating.
Imagine yourself faced with paperwork for a safe and lucrative investment and you can’t sign it directly and your custodian refuses to sign it.
That’s every day business for a SDIRA custodian company. Their business model is so mired down by paranoid attorneys who won’t let them let their customers experience the true power of an IRA. They’re afraid of law suits.
And they should be…
Self-Directed IRA Custodians
Get Sued All The Time
An with each passing year, they get more and more restrictive and their accountholders get less and less power and control over their own IRA money.
It’s infuriating, and I’ve had my share of emails and phone calls from investors letting off steam about how inadequate their Self-Directed IRA Custodian account is, and how they’re even questioning whether any of their effort was worth it.
Delight At The
End Of The Tunnel
After hearing those stories, you’re probably not too impressed by the prospect of investing with a Self-Directed IRA.
But that’s because they were doing it wrong.
Some investors get discouraged with the myriad of ways a Self-Directed IRA Custodian can stomp on their dreams—and they give up.
Don’t do that!
Use these stories to magnify the importance of getting on the right path. And then they ask…
What About The
Self-Directed IRA LLC
or “Checkbook IRA”?
The IRA LLC was a big innovation. In fact, signs said we’d cracked the code.
Attorney Debra Buchanan and I pioneered that thing back in the early 2000s. The IRA LLC was a massive improvement upon the Self-Directed IRA.
Debra was pouring through the microfiche in Washington D.C. one day working on a case and stumbled upon an old government ruling from the 80s.
After digging deeper, she discovered that by forming an LLC (Limited Liability Company) and adding it on top of a Self-Directed IRA, the IRA investor can manage his money directly.
“Checkbook Privileges,” as in “goodbye annoying SDIRA Custodian.”
We had to make sure this was legal, so Deb and I spent a lot of time on the phone and taking trips in person to Washington D.C. to make sure this passes muster with the regulators.
Fortunately, it all checked out, and the custodians were furious.
The Power Of The Checkbook
Investors like Chuck and Sherry—and hoards of others—moved on to setup an IRA LLC to legally get “checkbook privileges” over their own IRA money.
Want to close a deal quickly? Sure.
Want to buy assets at auction? Go for it.
Want to buy any legally-allowable investment without getting stonewalled by some paranoid decision maker blocking you from your own IRA money? Do it.
What a giant leap for investor freedom and control!
But there are costs and limitations you should know about.
FACT: The IRA LLC Is Complicated
Most investors who get to this point just pay a “facilitator” firm, often made of up attorneys originally taught by me or my students, who will then do everything to setup this IRA LLC for them and make it as easy as possible.
They end up getting a notebook full of documents in the mail, but even if all the documents have already been prepared and filed appropriately, the complexity of the approach doesn’t go away.
There can still be:
- Extra tax returns
- Extra taxes
- “Franchise fees” to state governments
- Fees, fee increases, policy changes, and interference from the IRA custodian
Take Brad, for example.
He setup an IRA LLC. Now they call it an IRA LLC because…
IRA + LLC = IRA LLC
…there are two parts. One, the IRA, which is still a Self-Directed IRA Custodian account.
And two, the LLC, which is an “entity” you control.
The IRA money goes into the Self-Directed IRA Custodian account and then you instruct them to forward it on to the LLC.
Then You’re Home Free
At least in theory.
In practice, Brad did everything right.
He even went to an IRA LLC facilitator that had attorneys on staff and set everything up for him.
He got his notebook in the mail and opened a checking account at his favorite local bank.
Within about 6 weeks, his IRA money was nestled conveniently in that checking account and he was the only signor on the checks.
Nobody at the bank, or even the SDIRA Custodian company 800 miles away, could interfere with his ability to make smart investments.
So Brad bought a couple of rental properties, some gold coins, a few other investments he felt good about.
Then came the letter. It essentially said…
It's your Custodian masters here.
We've been thinking about your IRA LLC and we don't like it. We got sued a few times since you opened your account, and so have all the other companies.
So we've decided you have to get rid of the LLC.
Sorry about the attorney's fees, and the big headaches of needing to re-title all your new IRA assets back into our name.
If we don't like any of the assets, we won't accept them and you'll have to pay huge taxes on them.
Please wrap this up by our deadline or we'll distribute your entire IRA to you and force you to liquidate your IRA to hand half of it over to the government in income taxes, while bumping up your tax bracket to the highest one.
Your Custodian Masters
And honestly, it’s not the SDIRA Custodian’s fault. They are getting sued all the time, and it’s almost always frivolous. The SDIRA Custodians are doing the right thing for their shareholders.
But you aren’t their shareholder.
It’s a flaw in the Custodian SYSTEM.
Before I explain what that flaw is and how to flush it out for good, there’s something else you need to know about taxes.
Please Pay $13,984,291!
Meet Bill: An investor who, like many, decided to make a change with his investments. In his case, he decided to invest in real estate to see if he could make good profits and have more control over his future.
Bill couldn’t have executed his plan any more perfectly on the real estate front. He built a portfolio of rental properties that paid his IRA over $30,000 per month in cash flow.
It was a big accomplishment, and he was happy with his progress… until the first tax bill came.
To Bill’s astonishment, his $30,000 per month in real estate income was racking up huge unexpected taxes.
His first year’s tax bill was $156,758!
What’s more, Bill’s plan was to continue to invest and compound his returns.
Doing so would turn his $4,000,000 nest egg into $26,909,999 over the next 20 years:
But, the surprise tax he had to pay every year mean he was compounding his investment returns much less. To the tune off…
This Single Surprise Tax
Cost Him $13,984,291!
You read that right.
Investment returns aren’t the only thing that compound. The cost of a brutal 39.6% tax compounds too.
And if you have a smaller IRA than Bill does, it doesn’t make any difference.
The cost of this double taxation for Bill was 51.97% of his money and that’s before even figuring the SECOND round of taxes he’ll pay when withdrawing the money out of his IRA in retirement.
Losing half your money to a simple mistake is horrendously costly no matter what the size of your investment.
By now, two things should be painfully obvious. First,
There’s So Much POTENTIAL
To Take Charge Of Your
Money, Destiny, and Future
The stakes are high. It’s your future. You’ve worked hard for your money and its yours.
Or is it?
Clearly with the shark-infested Standard IRA, much of your money is taken from you through high fees and reduced performance.
With both the Self-Directed IRA and IRA LLC, true freedom is so close within reach you can almost taste it and touch it.
But the REAL stories of what SDIRA investors are experiencing reveal the brutal reality that it’s a real mine field out there.
Custodians, facilitators, and investment promoters… all doing their best to make everything SOUND good, with disappointing results.
There’s a reason all these investors are encountering one obstacle after another, putting themselves through a gauntlet of stress and worries.
What You Don’t Know
WILL Hurt You
The most fascinating thing about all this is that there’s an invisible underlying element, wrapping its tentacles around your hopes and dreams everywhere you look to put your IRA money.
It doesn’t matter what IRA Custodian you use, where you go to setup an LLC, or what you invest in.
What matters is who holds the power. And the power is in…
The Secret Document
That UNLOCKS The Power
All of these tales of SDIRA woe involves different kinds of accounts, LLCs, multiple custodians, multiple IRAs, Roths, etc.
Bu with one thing in common…. all withholding the one document that can set you free.
This document entitles its holder to control the IRA, set its limitations, control its choices, control its fees, and basically run the show.
It’s a real document. There are over 100 million Americans have these accounts—and there’s a document behind each account, so taboo and powerful, nobody even talks about this.
It’s called the “plan document” and if you want to solve this puzzle, repeat after me:
“He Who Holds The Plan
Document Controls The IRA”
This is the big secret sauce that unlocks the full power of the IRA/401k. But instead of sauce, it’s a document.
If this master document is in your file cabinet, you’re a “free agent” and the world is your playground as a smart investor.
Let this document be locked away in some cushy corner office of a Self-Directed IRA Custodian executive, and say goodbye to your dreams.
Have a look at the placement of the document within the shark-infested Standard IRA:
You can easily give up 50-80% of your money through fees over time with a shark-infested Standard IRA.
It’s because the plan document in on THEIR side.
That document LOCKS IN their high-fee-getting scheme, limiting you to their family of funds that line their pockets with your stolen future.
The plan document says who handles the money, who presents what investment options (or lack thereof), who administers the account, etc, etc, with all of these roles getting a piece of YOUR money.
It’s obviously a disgustingly bad deal, and that’s why so many investors turn to the Self-Directed IRA Custodian account that looks like this:
Notice how the plan document is still nestled conveniently on the other side? That’s so you’re locked in to what THEIR plan document says.
It’s basically a monopoly, and swapping a Standard IRA for a Self-Directed IRA is just like changing the facade—but it’s still a monopoly, and the full power of the IRA/401k is still locked away out of your reach.
That’s what Bill discovered: his Self-Directed IRA could never give him the option to legally opt out of double taxation on his real estate.
That’s just one of the many problems that comes with your IRA plan document being out of your reach, under their power. They’ll use it to enrich themselves, at your expense, every single time.
Now let’s look at…
And it’s related approach…
These are attempts to get that elusive “free agent” status where all the monopolies, restrictions, and limitations are replaced by true freedom.
…But it just doesn’t work every time, and it’s all because the plan document is still on the wrong side. Remember, “He who holds the plan document controls the IRA.”
If putting one plan document out of your reach causes problems, putting more plan documents out of your reach isn’t going to solve them.
- Einstein, A Smart Guy
We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.
The Double Taxation, Custodian LLC Recall, Complexities, State Filings, and myriad of other problems don’t go away by multiplying them.
At this point, there should be a question burning through you by now…
“How Do I Get The Plan
Document In MY Hands?”
This is where things get refreshingly simple and for a good reason.
The one and only way to get your IRA plan document in your hot little hands is to setup a special type of IRA.
In fact it’s called a “Solo 401(k)” because of a legal technicality. But make no mistake, it’s an IRA.
It’s more of an IRA than any other IRA—setup by you, for you, giving you complete control in a way none of the other approaches can deliver on. Why?
…You guessed it: The plan document is on YOUR side:
Who would have ever imagined putting a document in your filing cabinet could make such a big difference on the control you have over your money and future?
Having the plan document on your side means that ANY element of your IRA is up to your choice and control.
Want to change physical gold storage facilities? You have the power.
Want to change who you use for stocks, bonds, and index funds? You have the power.
Want to invest offshore? You have the power.
And you can do all of this WITHOUT breaking or even bending any rules. This freedom comes from UNLOCKING that plan document and putting it on your side.
In fact, when you have the plan document you aren’t even required to hire any of the custodians who want to charge you money to take away your control.
Have a look for yourself at what’s possible:
The beauty of it is…
You Can UNLOCK Your IRA/401k NOW
Because the Solo 401k isn’t just an “alternative investment” IRA, or just a “Gold IRA”, or just a “Mutual Fund IRA”… it doesn’t matter who you are or what type of investing you want to do.
You can UNLOCK your IRA/401k money now.
You don’t have to wait until you find an alternative asset. Heck you don’t have to find an alternative asset ever to make the Solo 401k payoff big for you.
It could be worth millions to you because of one feature alone…
Invest In An UNLOCKED
Now let’s talk about Wall Street’s biggest secret.
That shark-infested, mutual-fund-laden, high-fee, ripoff “Standard” IRA is locked up in a limited “family” of funds and investment choices designed to enrich the administrators, custodians, and brokers involved in monopolizing on your IRA money.
But when you use your own Solo 401k,
it’s not THEIR IRA—it’s YOURS.
Let me explain because this could be worth millions of dollars to you and your retirement…
Most investors are so suffocated by bad IRAs because the plan document is setup automatically without your input. That’s how they get all the limitations (about forcing their family of high-fee mutual funds, disallowing alternative investments) in there.
The key to UNLOCK your IRA money is to go from the old way:
Step 1: Open Your Account
Step 2: Invest Among the Options Made Available To You
…which by the way is the same process whether you have a Standard IRA or Self-Directed IRA…
Instead, to fully unlock your IRA money, you make one simple change:
Step 1: Setup Your Plan Document INDEPENDENTLY
Step 2: Open Any Accounts You Want
Step 3: Invest Among Any Option Out There
In other words, you just separate out the creation of the plan document and the opening of accounts.
The plan document setup is INDEPENDENT of the brokerage account.
In fact, you can open a REAL brokerage account that gives you access:
- Nearly-zero-cost index funds that outperform mutual funds with 95% less fees
- Stock options (puts, calls)
- Margin accounts
- Bear funds (make money with the stock market goes down)
- All available publicly traded stocks and bonds
Why This Is Important
Many would-be Smart Investors are stopped in their tracks by uncertainty…
- What should I invest in?
- Should I really get out of the stock market?
- What do I do until I find a suitable alternative asset investment deal?
- Am I really cut out to make decisions on alternative assets?
- Do I have what it takes?
You see, they feel like they need to be switching from “Team Wall Street” to “Team Alternative Assets” and it causes them to freeze up in doubt, or even reduce their own power and choices.
With a Solo 401k, fully UNLOCKED, there’s no choice to make: you get it all.
In fact, you can start with the simplest, easiest investment strategy ever: buy index funds that outperform your old IRA/401k, and reclaim the 50-80% of your money that you were losing due to be robbed through fees.
Anyone can do that.
If you never progress any further than that, you can at least recapture 50-80% of your money with the uber-basic index fund strategy. Huge payoff.
And whenever you’re ready, you can…
Use Your Permanent Checkbook
Privileges To Capture Lucrative
Deals Not Available In Public Markets
We’re talking REAL checkbook privileges that no Custodian can take away from you.
The next time a big crash blindsides mainstream investors and everybody is running and screaming, you can be scooping up assets for pennies on the dollar.
Houses, raw land, apartment buildings, factories, private businesses.
In fact, screaming deals are to be found every day in the USA. If you keep your eyes peeled.
Turn On Your
Reticular Activating System
Have you ever decided you might want to buy a certain car, and then noticed that kind of car all over the roads?
That happened with me a few years ago when I thought I’d get a Jeep. Not only did I start seeing Jeeps everywhere I went, the drivers were even waving at me!
It was almost like the universe was saying “Hey, Jeff, we’re waiting for you in the Jeep Super Fun Times Club!”
This doesn’t happen with only cars. It happens with everything.
This phenomenon comes from a part of your brain called the Reticular Activating System, and it seeks out any information that solves a problem you’re brain is working on, deep in the back “unconscious” parts.
And once you get Permanent Checkbook Privileges over your IRA/401k money, your Reticular Activating System is turned on for lucrative alternative investments.
It’s quite weird actually.
I get reports all the time from investors who happen to “stumble upon” an incredible investment deal just days after setting up their Solo 401k.
Take Judy for instance…
Judy Found Free Money
Judy lives in an area where major natural gas discoveries were being made, and she’s a realtor.
Judy set up a Solo 401k and proceeded to buy several homes on acreage around town.
She started with around $200,000 and bought a couple houses with that.
Now, get this… Judy then sold the homes for the exact price she had just paid for them… but retained the mineral rights.
You probably see where this is going.
Mineral rights are the ownership of the minerals, including natural gas, that are in the land.
So she would just:
- Buy a house with land
- Sell the house, retain the mineral rights in her Solo 401k
After a year or so, she’s piled up quite a few mineral rights to properties all over town.
Then when the big energy companies came to extract the natural gas, Judy sold or leased her mineral rights out to those energy companies.
…And put over $1 million profit into her Solo 401k, tax-deferred.
I’ve got countless stories just like it, but the key is to setup your Solo 401k now, regardless of whether you think you’ll want to invest in alternative asset deals.
It just won’t happen if you don’t position yourself for it.
But the truth is…
You Don’t Need A Big Score For
The Solo 401k To Better Your Future
You just need to get out of the shark-infested Standard IRA that’s skimming most your retirement profits and leaving you with the crumbs.
Stop being the victim and unleash your freedom.
If you start with a small commitment to unlock your IRA/401k money and get it into index funds, you’ll cut out the sharks and reclaim what’s rightfully yours.
So with that in mind, let me show you the key that unlocks the door to the Solo 401k…
How To Automatically
Qualify For The Solo 401k
Most “Solo 401k Facilitators” are quick to try to “disqualify” you from a Solo 401k because they’d rather setup an IRA LLC for you.
IRA LLCs are more complex, require more ongoing work and fees. So most facilitators would rather get the higher fees for an IRA LLC over time.
To me, that’s just stupid.
If you can qualify for the Solo 401k, and it’s better for your future, I want you to have it.
I’d prefer putting around in my backyard on the golf course over getting a bunch of IRA LLC fees from you. Let’s both earn and enjoy peace of mind, don’t you think?
Employers Prohibited: If you a own a business that employs other people FULL-TIME who get a W2 paycheck, the Solo 401k isn't available to you. (If that's you, don't worry, there's something similar to a Solo 401k that works for you, just email us to request info).
For everyone else…
What’s All The Solo 401k
Qualifying Fuss About?
You need some sort of “qualifying business activity” that holds the potential to pay you some extra money on the side.
Fortunately, with my Solo 401k System you automatically get a referral link to share Solo 401k education with other people. If any of those people setup their own Solo 401k (good for them!), you’ll get a referral fee.
And that my friend, gives you “qualifying business activity” without any business costs, burdens or obligations.
All you have to do is share the link with a few people every year. It could be a yearly email to friends and family.
And to qualify to setup your Solo 401k today, all you need to do is decide now that you’ll share your referral link in the future. Keep it simple, okay?
Heck, the Solo 401k is so powerful, we noticed years ago, most of our clients were doing this on their own anyways. So giving you a referral link just made sense.
Now that you’ve decided to qualify, I should probably tell you…
My Retirement = Your Gain
As you know I retired in my 20s from real estate investing.
But all this excitement and consulting I did in the world of Self-Directed IRAs brought me out of retirement.
I ended up building the premier “Solo 401k facilitation” company in Denver, CO.
That means we mastered the process of setting up a Solo 401k. The documents, the accounts, support tutorials and guides… the whole process start to finish.
And because I created the first “fully unlocked” Solo 401k offering, my team and I have the most experience with all of this.
But I did one thing VERY different.
This is because I noticed something at all the other custodians and facilitation companies. Everything was being done like it was still 1970.
Data entry. Document drafting. Everything.
It was like stumbling into a car factory run entirely by human labor without computers, or even electricity!
And for these custodians and facilitators to grow, they had to grow their staff… more cubicles, more phone lines, more office space. It’s the business owner’s dream.
But Really A Nightmare
I also got to see the other side of that too. The custodians’ and faciliators’ customers (people like you) were very frustrated. All that manual data entry meant waiting for delays and infuriating errors for investors.
On the business side, my belief is that humans were not meant to sit under fluorescent lights and shuffle papers around and take data from one place and type it into another.
ESPECIALLY now that we’re in the computer age and it’s all unnecessary.
Stick with me here for a moment and you’ll see how this affects you in a big way…
With all the SDIRA custodians and IRA LLC facilitators using dinosaur-era technology and having to hire lots of expensive staff and office space… they also had to pass on that expense to the customer (on top of the errors, delays, and generally low quality customer service).
I decided to do things differently
I invested hundreds of thousands of dollars into software that systematized the Solo 401k setup process, and it creates the plan document in—get this—7 seconds from our end.
That means that once a new Solo 401k client got us their info, the Solo 401k plan documents were drafted in under 7 seconds, with 0% errors, at the push of a button.
What this meant is that my little facilitation company in Denver, with less than 20 employees, could handle more clients than the other companies with 300 employees.
It was a lot of fun
We took an old industry model, cut out the fat, and ended up with a smaller business that could handle more clients.
All because of a piece of software that did a better job than 300 employees could do, and it worked 24/7/365.
But I shut it down in 2011, and for a good reason—a handful of other Solo 401k facilitation companies hit the market.
And my soon-to-be wife, Rachel, wanted to travel around the world. And that’s exactly what we did.
I downsized my staff and operation to support existing clients, and went jet setting.
My wife and I went to Arizona, California, Switzerland, summer in Sweden (where the sun doesn’t want to go down), Holland, another summer in the mountains of British Columbia (where people seem to be outnumbered by grizzly bears and mountain lions), Mexico, Brazil…
…And then we finally settled back into the amazing U.S.A. as Colorado-Arizona-Snow-Birds.
It was a lovely 15-month journey.
The Plan Went Haywire
We returned to an enormous pile of voicemails and emails that had been accumulating since I got out of the “Solo 401k facilitation” business.
Apparently, there was enough QUANTITY of Solo 401k facilitators after we left.
But not enough QUALITY. Just a bunch of copycats trying to pretend they knew the Solo 401k business as well as we do.
I wanted to help, and after 15 months of clearing my head (hint: surfing helps for that!), I had…
My Crazy Idea
In my facilitation business, we built our custom software to do all the work. To be candid, when a new client signed up and gave us a $2500 to setup their Solo 401k, our software did all the heavy lifting.
The profit margin was pretty close to 100%. That was my “return on investment” for having the software built, and it made me feel better about sinking hundreds of thousands of dollars into the software!
A great business model for me. I tell you all this so you’ll understand how I’m in position to help you in a different way that you can’t find anywhere else.
Back to after I came back from Brazil… I’d already shut down the facilitation business, but I was still getting contacted by people begging for me to setup their Solo 401k.
So I had a crazy idea…
“What if we cut out the middleman?”
A strange question to ask because in the facilitation business, WE were the middleman.
People were essentially paying us $2500 to press a button on our keyboard, and the software would do the rest.
I’d say that’s a pretty classic example of a “middleman” business.
“What if we gave investors direct access to the Solo 401k software?
I did some math an realized we could do this:
- Without any setup fee at all
- Without any contracts or long-term commitments at all
- Without any annual maintenance fee
- Without any LLC setup or fees or government filings
So I did an experiment.
The Results Spoke for Themselves
At this point we had a very long waiting list of people who wanted OUR Solo 401k.
For those on the list, it was kind of like a choice between being coached in martial arts from either Bruce Lee… or a fat slob spouting theory from his potato-chip sprinkled couch.
In the world of Self-Directed IRAs, and the best kind of them—the Solo 401k—plenty of investors knew I was the “Bruce Lee.”
So, I took the first 100 off the waiting list, told them what I’ve just told you, and gave them direct access to the Solo 401k software.
They LOVED It
It was simple, quick, easy to use.
Heck, by the time they got their hot little hands on it, we had already used it thousands of times over the last 7 years—starting the first year Solo 401k plans were legally available.
It wasn’t like the software was “untested.”
It had created more fully unlocked Solo 401k plans than any other facilitator.
While it may have been a prototype 7 years ago, it’s a well-oiled machine now.
And those first 100 investors who got access to it were absolutely thrilled.
All of them setup their Solo 401k plans immediately, got their plan documents in their own hands, filed them in their own filing cabinets, and have never looked back since.
“I wish I would have been able to access this YEARS ago” became the mantra we heard from them.
ESPECIALLY the ones who setup Self-Directed IRA accounts at other custodians, or even facilitators.
Many of them had a “Solo 401k” setup by another facilitator that was unusable—usually due to a mistake stemming from lack of experience.
A lot of other facilitators are attorneys who are smart about the law, but personally inexperienced with Self-Directed investing… or at least “under-experienced” compared to me.
The Experiment Was A Success
Every investor found the software easy to use.
Every investor setup his/her plan documents.
Every investor transferred his/her money into the Solo 401k without taxes or penalties.
And every investor was able to painlessly get to the fun part—alternative investments.
Some of them didn’t know what kind of alternative investments they wanted, and even just parked their money into the index funds that they were previously denied access to in their “Standard IRA.”

You can do this instantly with the “checkbook privileges” granted by your Solo 401k.

You’re restricted from investing with family and from “conflict of interest” or “self dealing” transactions, but these are simple to steer clear of and I’m going to give you a full report (no charge) of how to avoid these.
(Optional) Shelter Massive Self-Employment

How much? You can shelter up to $115,000 per year into your Solo 401k.

But with that said, please realize…
This IS VERY Limited AND You’ll Never Have The Opportunity To Get It This Cheap Again, Period.

On the supply side, the reason I’m limiting this to 100 spots is because I’m preparing to launch this to the public soon, and I’d like to get some feedback from you and the others before we launch publicly.
As far as demand goes…
Look, I’ll just point out the facts:
- We haven’t been setting up Solo 401k plans in over THREE YEARS. I’ve been retired and my core full-time staff have been staying on top of some of my other projects.
- My subscriber list is 35,000 strong and they’re very responsive.
- This is the first Solo 401k promotion I’ve done since 2011, and people are coming out of the woodwork.
- The Solo 401k was recently written about in Forbes, in Tony Robbins new book, and featured on several TV programs, and interest in this has been growing even faster than before.
So to say there’s some pent up demand would be an understatement.
But here’s something to consider …all these subscribers were expecting this Solo 401k special promotion to have the usual $2500 price tag that it had before.
So the giant bargain is just going to fuel demand that much more.
I guess what I’m saying is if you want to unleash the full power of your IRA/401k money to build YOUR better future, you need to sign up now …before the 100 spots are taken.
