Choice is a new self-directed IRA product that I'm really excited about. If you are listening to this, you are likely part of the 7.1 million bitcoin owners who have retirement accounts with dollars in them, but not bitcoin. I was in that situation too. Now you can actually buy real Bitcoin in your retirement account. I'm talking about owning your private keys and using tax-advantaged dollars to do it too. Absolute game changer. https://www.retirewithchoice.com/pomp
=======================
You don’t have to be a hedge fund guru to know that markets can rise and fall quickly - remember Dogecoin? Sometimes, the most attractive growth can be found in some of the oldest of places.

Despite being hundreds of years old, the art market is poised for tremendous market capitalization growth. Deloitte projects the total wealth held in art and collectibles to expand from $1.7 trillion to $2.7 trillion by 2026. I largely attribute this to the rise of securitized assets, opening the doors to the art market for all. Founded in 2017, Masterworks dot IO is the leading platform for blue-chip art investing with over 185,000 registered users. They have purchased over $180 million in art from artists like Banksy, Basquiat and KAWS. I’m a huge fan of Masterworks dot IO and have spoken with founder Scott Lynn twice now on the pod - so go back and give those episodes a listen!
