Jim will teach you how to use your Roth IRA to buy real estate tax free, how to lend money on real estate deals, how to borrow money from private lenders using their IRA and much more. Jim will dispel these common myths and mysteries about self-directed IRAs and retirement plans:

- The common answer is “no”. We will show you how to turn that into a “yes”.

- Can you partner?
- Learn how to partner with yourself and others
- Using your self-directed IRA to create current income legally
