Want to get a better understanding of how to earn money inside an IRA?
Think about candy bar wrappers, envelopes or even garages. Why? Because
like each of these things, it's what's on the inside that counts.
Despite the fact that we can lose money doing it, we continue to invest
for our long-term goals. Why? Because we know we’ve got no real chance
of accumulating the kind of money we’ll need to retire some day if we
don’t. In other words, we’ve each decided that for us investing is not
an option; it’s a necessity. And that may be the case for you, too.
Sitting on cash? You’re not alone. It’s everywhere -- in IRAs,
retirement plans, bank and investment accounts. Heck, we’d even be so
bold as to speculate that there are more than a few mattresses out there
hiding their share of currency.
