As a self-employed individual I am very interested in making contributions to a Roth IRA and know about the $2,000 limit.

I hope that you also know about the Keogh plan. Properly set up, it will allow you to defer taxes on 20% (nominal 25%, but a real 20%) of your Schedule C profit. This is in addition to the Roth, and is usually more money.
