Why I Only Invest In Collateralized Assets

Wall Street investments aren’t backed by meaningful collateral.

A stock might be worth a fortune one day, and nothing the next. Mutual funds, stocks, bonds…

It’s all just paper.



20 years ago, that’s all I knew to do. I opened a 401k for my dental office because I felt guilty.

Everyone else was doing it. I should be doing it too… right?

5 years later, I was sick and tired of the paperwork, legal administration, compliance requirements, and liability. (Did you know that you can be held liable for losses your employees experience in your company 401k? Scary thought…)

I finally shut the plan down.

I took the funds and rolled them over (without tax) to a traditional IRA. From there I could transition them to a Self Directed Roth IRA.

I was once again in control of my money.

I could own investments backed by real collateral. I was no longer at the mercy of the stock market’s whimsical valuation fluttering.

My employees could do the same thing, or they could just take the money, pay the tax, and do what they wanted with it.

To my surprise, the employees of my practice embraced the transition.

They weren’t nearly as attached to the 401k model as I might have thought.

It was one of the smartest decisions I could have made.


Why don’t others take advantage of the same path to freedom?

It’s simple:

Control comes with responsibility.

You have to commit to learning how to invest your own money.

You can’t abdicate that responsibility to Wall Street, or a financial planner.

It might seem scary, but the truth is: sending your hard-earned money to a suit on Wall Street and hoping he’ll outwit the market for you wasn’t a winning strategy to begin with.

Today, I only invest in paper that’s secured by a specific asset collateral like property or businesses.

It took me 30 years to blaze this new path through the retirement wilderness.

Today, members of our mastermind community are taking the same path in a mere 5-7 years.

You can do it too. You’re closer than you think.

To your Freedom!!
