Bryan Ellis

My name is Bryan Ellis.  I am publisher of Self-Directed Investor Magazine and of Accredited IQ Magazine.  I'm also host of Self Directed Investor Talk, which has been downloaded far more than 1,000,000 times and I'm told is America's #1 podcast and for affluent self-directed investors. I'm also something of an expert in capital raising, self-directed IRA's, solo 401k's and 1031 exchanges. Along with the vast amount of my work on this site, you can find more of my writing in some cool places like TheStreet.com, Entrepreneur.com, ThinkRealty and Forbes.  I have the distinction of being a non-lawyer whose knowledge of the law surrounding self-directed IRA's is so strong that I teach legal education courses to licensed attorneys through CEB, the legal continuing education division of the University of California.  I live in metro Atlanta, Georgia with my wife and business partner Carole Ellis whose skill as a writer, editor and researcher are second to none. I also have 4 children ranging in age from 6 to 23.
