Welcome to Reflections and Resources for the Resource-full

I will be writing every now and again when I come across resources that I think will be useful to those who have more than enough financially who live here in the Pioneer Valley. I will also let you know about events that I may be convening or ones that others are organizing that might be of interest to you.

Self-Directed IRA Clinic in Northampton

One meeting is coming up on July 9th – Invest. Here. Now is holding a clinic for people who want to take steps toward setting up a self-directed IRA so that they can invest in local organizations such as Common Capital, Equity Trust and Cooperative Fund for New England for example.

Invest. Here. Now. has held information sessions but this one meeting is designed for you personally to move from point A to point B so that you can have the support you need to figure out whether you want to do this, where you might choose, figure out what forms you need to fill out to make a transfer, etc.

We will be meeting in Solidago Foundation’s boardroom with access to Wi-Fi so be sure to bring your laptop if you decide to come. Scott Reed and I will be there – we are not experts but each of us has set up a self-directed IRA (with different companies) so at least we can help you take the first steps.

The meeting July 9th, 5:30 – 7:00 on the 3rd floor of Thornes Market in Northampton, Solidago Foundation’s Board room. If you are interested in coming please do register at http://invest-here-now.org/ We are also asking people to bring finger food snacks to share.
