Do you need a new, Next Economy Nest Egg?

He’s CEO of Directed IRA & Directed Trust Company, a partner at KKOS Lawyers, a national speaker, top ranked podcast host, best-selling author of The Self-Directed IRA Handbook (over 25,000 copies sold), and a real estate investor. He has been cited, referenced, or quoted by The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, The Guardian, Yahoo Finance, and Entrepreneur.

We will also share updates and next steps around our organizing work to mobilize hundreds of individuals and small businesses to harness retirement savings to re-invest in next economy solutions. We hope you'll join us, and build a truly "Next Economy" nest egg!
