    Initially, you are better off starting with an individual K plan. With a SEP, you will be limited to an overall percentage of your income. With a 401k, you can effectively put away a greater percentage of you income after you put in your employee portion, your employer match and a profit share component.

    Thanks baloga! thats the route I am going down on... I wonder how scottrade is vis-a-vis some one like Vanguard. Of course, I expect that I will possibly do a lot of self-management with scottrade, but i am totally game for it. Thanks for your ideas.
