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 You should also download and read IRS Publication 560 (Retirement Plans for Small Business) available at You have more options than you think.
