IRA or 401K for the Self employed

i have a single memember LLC and really need to look at saving for retirement. i am almost 27 and had a 401k at one point but withdrew it to start the business i currently run. it was through principle and my previous employer.

can anyone offer advice on the "best" way to start saving for retirement once again.

i am currently only saving through a normal savings account, but its not specifically for retirement.

bank, credit union, brokerage?

Sharebuilder.com is a decent option.

Recently bought by Capital One if that influences your choice.

Usually the best choice, unless you have a bunch of employees that have been with you 3 or more years. Do a Roth too if you qualify.

American Funds, Fidelity, Vanguard.

I personally would choose American Funds or Vanguard. They have the lowest expenses for the most part on the funds.

No employees. Just me.

My wife has retirement through her employer which is pretty good. We are about to have a baby so I really need to lock down some sort of retirement savings.

I'm going to check out y'all's recommendations. Thanks.

Just open a SEP at a brokerage firm. I would not be held captured to a fund family like American funds.
