Can I fund a new business by rolling over money from an existing IRA to my new corporation's 401(k)?
Is it wise and legal to buy a small new business by rolling over money from an existng IRA account into a newly established 401(k) sponsored by my new business? The new 401(k) would buy stock in my new business (a C-Corp--or should it be an S?) and that would fund my business.

The simplest solution is most often the most elegant one, and 401(k) rules as to how the plan gets established are very complex. You should definitely speak with a financial advisor or other retirement-plan specialist to make sure you don’t run afoul of the rules.
