6 Places to Open a Roth IRA (And Why You Should)

Few things are more boring than investing for retirement.

You're taking money that you could spend today, and putting it into an account that you can't touch for 30+ years..


However.. it's a necessity.

Unless you plan on working forever, you'll have to invest at least a little bit of money throughout your life.

Now, there are so many different kinds of investment accounts out there which is why today, we're only focusing on one of them:

The Roth IRA​

Why the Roth?

Because it's one of the easiest accounts to open and it's also one of the most impactful.

A Roth IRA lets you invest money that has already been taxed and once you reach age 59 1/2, you can have that money completely tax free.​

For example: If you put in $500 to a Roth IRA today and it grew to $1 million, you could withdraw that entire $1 million and not have to pay taxes on any of it.

Pretty cool, right?

Okay.. maybe it's not "cool", but it's impactful.​If you haven't opened a Roth IRA yet, these are a few places I recommend:​
