[07:08] “The financial services industry as a whole has failed you, and that's because most instances, in financial services, you're not going to be informed about a self-directed IRA to invest in real estate.”
[28:51] “By eliminating the variable of taxation, you increase your annual yield…If your transactions are structured properly, and you're working through the process, and you're doing your due diligence, you could potentially get to your retirement goals and your financial goals by leveraging that component.”
