Greetings, OOfahShill, and welcome. You asked:

I recently became self employed (by choice) =) I need to start investing for the future. Where do I start. I dont think I want an annuity. Are there any other options for me besides an IRA or Roth IRA?

As a Self-employed person, you may use a SEP, SIMPLE or Keogh plan. You will find a brief description of all three in my Foolish Retirement Plan Primer at http://www.fool.com/Retirement/RetirementPlanPrimer.htm. You should also download and read IRS Publication 560 (Retirement Plans for Small Business) available at http://www.irs.ustreas.gov/forms_pubs/pubs.html. You have more options than you think.

Regard..Pixy
