"My wife & I recently moved to the United States (from East Asia) with our one-year old. I was earning $150K per year, and my wife is a homemaker. MYRA guided us through the basic financial instruments in the US, and provided us with a realistic and achievable strategy to fund not only our retirement, but also save for our child’s education (529 plan)"

New York, NY

"We can save $100K+ in federal and state taxes?!? That was my reaction, when MYRA educated my wife & I on the use of an IRS Section 121 exemption – which allows us to receive a tax exemption on up to $500,000 of the gain on the sale of our primary residence. That’s real value!

Jersey City, NJ

"MYRA takes a more holistic, total wealth approach that prioritizes all my goals—beyond just retirement—and helps ensure that they are achieved. I’m a young 30-something start-up employee. I’ve always dreamed of pursuing an MBA. MYRA understood me, and helped me to create an education savings strategy that got me closer to my goal."

Atlanta, Ga

"I like to work hard and play hard. However, as a business owner, I’m mostly working hard but don’t have the time to play hard. I hope to retire early, and play hard in retirement. I was re-investing all my income into the business, and forgetting to take care of my future. MYRA helped me set up a SEP IRA, to sock away 20% of income. Hello early retirement…"

Philadelphia, PA

"Baby #2 was on the way, and our house was getting smaller. We loved our home, and did not want to sell. But we did not have a substantial down payment for a 2nd home. Until MYRA advised us on a Cash-Out refinance. We pulled out some equity from our 1st home, enough to get a substantial down payment on our 2nd home. We now own both homes, and rent the 1st home for extra income."

San Diego, CA

"I wanted to increase my 401(K) contribution from 0% to 4% of my base pay, but my company failed to implement my request. MYRA directed me to an IRS guideline which mandated my employer contribute 25% of the missed contribution + matching contributions + lost investment returns. That's a $10,000 savings for me."
