How'd that go for you?

I needed a lot from my team but I didn't ask until 830. They fabulously delivered.

Pretty good! Not that many emails and starting at 7 tomorrow to knock out what I have to deliver.

Self-directed IRAs. So many questions! Have any of you ever tried a self directed IRA? I’m thinking about it in relation to investing in a company (to the tune of 150-200k) or possibly purchasing a vacation property as an investment in a location we’d like to retire (if I did that, could we use it to vacation personally occasionally in the meantime? Even if we needed to pay the IRA for the rental?) Thoughts? Warnings?

my pup has a partial ACL tear, sadly we do not have insurance and have to pay $5k out of pocket, i have heard of the credit we can take out and pay within a 2 year period but was wondering if anyone knew of any way to cut the price down? or of any other non surgical routes and avoid surgery. (we have already waited a couple of months to see if it would heal and no luck, also have been giving her extra vitamins, no more outside play, etc)
