The 6 Stages of Financial Freedom

When searching for ways to become free of worrying about money, it is important to know where you stand today. Sometimes the hardest part about taking control of your finances is starting in the first place.

I know it may sound crazy, but one of my favorite investors lives by the motto of “being greedy when others are fearful, and being fearful when others are greedy,” and right now there is an abundance of fear around every corner.

So what I have done here is put together a list of the similarities and differences between a Roth IRA vs Traditional IRA, the advantages and disadvantages of both of them, and which one I would recommend you get started with as a long term investor.
