About Your Roth IRA

Our Family - Britt, Jen, Samantha, and Tommy

Welcome to Your Roth IRA - a reference website bringing you accurate, up-to-date information on Roth IRAs.

I'm Britt, and together with my wife Jen and our two children (Samantha and Tommy), we created this site to help people just like ourselves.

When Samantha was born, we grew frustrated trying to find the financial planning information we needed. So in January 2009, we decided to create a one-stop reference source for Roth IRA information.

The result is this site, Your Roth IRA.

Now, more than ever, a real need exists for people to take a common sense approach to personal investment decisions. Our goal with this site is to provide you with the most acccurate and up-to-date information possible, so you can make informed decisions regarding your own retirement savings.

Don't just take your financial advisor's word for it. Instead, remember this insightful quote by Warren Buffett, one of history's greatest investors...

"Wall Street is the only place that people ride to work in a Rolls Royce to get advice from those who take the subway."

The lesson? You are responsible for your own retirement planning. So we encourage you to take the time to read through this site and learn how.

About Our Family

Ironically, Jen and I grew up in very close proximity, attending the same elementary, middle, and high schools (she was one year behind me). Our lives paralleled each other in so many ways, but we never met until mutual friends introduced us years after we graduated high school.

How close were we? Just to give you an idea, here's a couple of visual examples. Below are our one year baby pictures, taken by the same photographer in the same chair!

And here we are with Mickey Mouse, the same summer at Disney World - both in Mickey's dressing room!

So after years and years of passing by and just missing each other, Jen and I finally met in 2003. A few months later, while eating take-out Chinese, Jen opened her fortune cookie and recieved the following fortune:

Your destiny lies before you, choose wisely

Immediately afterward, I opened my fortune cookie, and got this one:

Among the lucky, you are the chosen one

Needless to say, Jen chose wisely, and in June 2006, we got married:

Samantha Arrives

A couple of years later, our beautiful daughter Samantha came along...


Not long after Samantha was born, we decided to create Your Roth IRA in order to deliver the financial information we had sought, but couldn't find on the Internet, and also to generate additional income for our family.

In the early days, Samantha slept next to me on the couch as I worked on the site. (Now, she helps us work on it... In fact, she just helped me scan some of the pictures on this page!)

As each year has passed, Your Roth IRA has grown in terms of traffic, income, and the blessings it has bestowed upon our family.

Our Family Grows Again

Less than three years after we first launched the site, Samantha became a big sister when her little brother Tommy came along:

Today, our family lives in southeastern Virginia. By day, I work in the marketing field, while Jen is a work-at-home mom taking care of Samantha (3 years old) and Tommy (6 months old).

But it wasn't always this way.

When Samantha was born we both worked, and while we both wanted Jen to be able to stay home with our baby, it just wasn't financially possible - at least until we found Site Build It! (SBI). Now, we're living out our dreams. Read about how we did it and how you can to.
