Learning from Others: Case Studies to Educate and Inspire

By Equity Trust Staff0 Comments
Self-directed IRA investors know as long as you adhere to the IRS rules, the possibilities for investment options can seem endless.  The abundance of choice can be exciting… and maybe more than a little overwhelming.  Education and inspiration can be helpful to get you started, keep motivated, or give you new ideas to consider.

Equity Trust offers a wide variety of educational resources as well as myEQUITY, the online community where clients can share experience and learn from each other.  Webinars, digital downloads, and other tools are regularly distributed and archived to help you cultivate your knowledge or find inspiration.  

Still, there is something uniquely encouraging about hearing the successes achieved by real people.  The diversity of these client case studies demonstrates creativity, hard work, and due diligence coming together to build retirement savings – and possibly change lives.  As noted American author, Wilferd A. Peterson stated, “Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground.”
