Bear Markets and What to Focus On

One of the Most Misunderstood Benefits of the #RothIRA

One of the most misunderstood benefits of the Roth IRA, in short, is FLEXIBILITY.

What do I mean by flexibility. Well, in particular, most people either don’t know or are misinformed about when you can take money out of their Roth IRA free of penalties or taxes.
