We live in an age of information overload. That overload hurts us the most when dealing with our money and investments. One topic in particular tends to be more misunderstood than most: IRAs and similar accounts. With over 17 trillion dollars in America currently invested in IRAs, 401(k)s and other similar accounts, it’s disconcerting to see how misinformed many people are about these types of accounts.
Following the fun storytelling format he began with The Five Crossroads, Eric’s new book follows the adventures of a brand new couple through thirteen misconceptions people have about IRAs (and their truths). Join Ryan and Katie Johnson as they follow the mysterious Guide on a walk back through history, meet a few familiar characters, and learn how to take back control of their IRA money.
