Real Life Experience of Selling One Business & Starting Another w John Stoj
John Stoj is likely the only Investment Advisor you've ever met who has managed both $3.5 billion and a sushi kitchen. John’scareer in finance began on a Wall Street trading floor over twenty-five years ago, with stops at investment & commercial banks, money managers, and even his own hedge fund, and this has uniquely prepared him to see the financial services industry for what it is: flush with companies and professionals far more focused on their own best interests than their customers'.
John believes sincerely that, done well and delivered fairly, good financial advice is more valuable than its cost and worth buying. Unfortunately, through his experience, he knows that banks, broker-dealers, insurance companies, etc. do not have their customers’ best interests in mind – they have theirs in mind.
On top of that, John brings to the table experience opening, running, and selling a small foodservice business. Nothing breaks you out from the shackles of Wall Street than small business owners on Main Street.
John enjoys sharing his stories and advice from Wall Street, small business ownership, and (did we mention?) what it’s like to be married to an extremely successful doctor.

Should We Invest In IRA When We Are Already Investing In Our Businesses w Terry White
Tersh talks with Terry White, President & CEO of Sunwest Trust. He has been working in the real estate & investment world for 35+ years, and he’s got the expertise to prove it. After graduating with a degree in Accounting and working as a controller for a local title company, Terry launched a small escrow company, which quickly gained a reputation for being honest, hardworking, and fair. In 2003, Terry took his success a step further and formed Sunwest Trust, Inc. Headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Sunwest Trust, Inc. was founded on the principle of offering clients real-world solutions to all of their self-directed IRA and escrow management needs. Today, Sunwest Trust, together with Sunwest Escrow, serves its clients as both escrow agents and IRA custodians for Individual Retirement Accounts.
Terry has led Sunwest Trust with one goal: to provide outstanding service to each and every client by listening to them and learning exactly what they want. His passion lies in educating investors to build their own self-directed IRA’s, customized to fit their needs and financial goals. When he’s not in the office, Terry enjoys fly fishing, biking, traveling with his wife, and spending time in Colorado.

Check out this summary of Terry's book titled "When All You Have Is A Hammer...: An Informational Guide To Self-Directed IRAs":
“If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.” Bernard Baruch, American Businessman
As a young man, Terry White worked as a framer for his dad’s construction company. He used a big, heavy framing ax to pound 16-penny nails into 2 x 4s. An astute observer, he noticed that the finish carpenters on the site used a delicate, little hammer for their work of installing woodwork, window sills, and molding. The tool Terry used for his work was not the right tool for the job of a finish carpenter, nor did he have the skill to become a finish carpenter; he recognized that and took the lesson with him into adulthood.
With that story in mind, Terry chose the title for this book to position the Self-Directed IRA as another tool you may use to achieve your retirement goals. It is his opinion that Self-Directed IRAs are not for everyone; but for the right person, a Self-Directed IRA may be just the right tool for the job.
Self-Directed IRAs are great tools if you have the knowledge and skills about that in which you are investing, or want to acquire the knowledge and skills about that in which you want to invest; or are able to hire someone with the knowledge and skills about that in which you want to invest. Terry wrote this book as an informational guide for those who may be interested in Self-Directed IRAs. Readers will gain a broad overview of what owners of Self-Directed IRAs may expect and some of the investments they may purchase.
