The Chief Business Development Officer for New Direction IRA, Clay Malcolm joins me on today’s podcast. I have been doing business with New Direction for many years and have nothing but great things to say about them.
Clay and I discuss what IRA (Individual Retirement Accounts) accounts are and how an investor can use them as an income source. We explore the process and the benefits that an IRA offers investors. Clay explains what New Direction’s role is in the IRA agreement and how his company makes the experience as painless as possible.
