Special IRA Education with Kaaren Hall, President of uDirect IRA Services
Despite being in the midst of a recession and mortgage market collapse, Kaaren Hall founded and made a resounding success of uDirect IRA Services. The single mom discovered a strategic way to put her 20+ years in mortgage banking, real estate and property management to use. The solution was an untapped market for both her skills and for investors – self-directed IRAs.
Because self-directed IRAs can have a dramatic impact on retirees’ quality of life, Hall brings her full passion to educating Americans about the little-known investment vehicle. She has educated tens-of-thousands of investors and professionals on how to build wealth by taking control of self-directed IRAs. She says, "Financial literacy is not taught in schools, but our future depends on understanding it. Only about 4% of U.S. investors have a self-directed IRA. Why? Because most investors and many advisors simply aren’t aware of it."
Prior to her years at Bank of America, Indymac Bank and Hall’s own mortgage brokerage experience, she was an on-air news and traffic reporter and radio host. Now Hall broadcasts how to invest IRAs in real estate, land, startups and more. She takes pleasure in demystifying the subject via webinars, YouTube videos, live events, social media and her free weekly newsletter.
Through uDirect IRA, she has guided thousands of Americans through the process of diversifying their investments using self-directed IRAs. Learn more about Hall and her thriving company at uDirectIRA.com.

Meet Author Rebecca Rice and Discover her “Living Benefits” Strategy
At age 37 Rebecca Rice suddenly became single with three small children. Without any source of income, Rebecca faced food scarcity and homelessness. “I know what it’s like to be without,” Rebecca said. “I made it my goal to never let that happen again.”
She started working—and worked hard! She learned and advanced to the point where she started her own business. Along the way, she kept that passion for financial security for herself and for her clients. “I was drawn to financial services because it’s such a concrete, specific way to prepare for the difficulties life throws at you,” Rebecca said. For 24 years she read and studied books, journals, newsletters, and the leading trends to best help her clients secure their financial future.
In 2003 Rebecca discovered Nelson Nash’s book, Be Your Own Banker. She stayed up all night reading it. It just didn’t seem possible. So she asked her CPA to read it. He had never heard of the strategy either. Together they tried to punch holes in the theory behind Nash’s book. They ran the numbers. They ran the numbers again. And it worked! When her CPA called and said he wanted to set up four accounts for his family, she knew they were on to an amazing secret. How could she not have known about this incredible wealth-building strategy before now?
Rebecca fully used this “Living Benefits” strategy. She tried it herself and found success. She used it more and more. To date she is fully vested in this strategy and has the comfort, control, and peace that financial security brings. As of 2014, Rebecca has written over 3,000 uniquely designed policies. She’s gained certification in the knowledge and application of “Living Benefits” strategies. She’s used the “Living Benefits” for herself and her clients in every way possible. She stands as the go-to expert for the “Living Benefits” strategy.
