I am the founder of Self-Directed Investor (SDI) Society and the publisher of Self-Directed Investor magazine. .I'm also the host of Self-Directed Investor Talk, the leading podcast on self-directed investing. My wife, Carole Ellis, and I founded SDI Society to serve the educational needs of self-directed investors interested in investing in alternative assets since there are very few resources out there for this creative, independent population.
SDI Society is a multimedia educational platform designed to support all investors interested in self-directing their own retirement accounts into both conventional and "alternative" assets, such as real estate, precious metals, private loans, and many other options. We are neither custodians nor administrators nor lawyers (although I do teach continuing education for the California State Bar Association on the topic of self-directed investing!) and, as a result, are able to fully dedicate ourselves and our resoures to being advocates and educators for the self-directed investor, making SDI Society wholly unique in this space.
