The longer you hold off on this, the more challenging it will be to make up lost ground and obtain your retirement goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, just 52% of pre-retirees ask for the help of a financial advisor or financial planner. The survey also found that those who do use professional help have stronger financial results than pre-retirees who do not. It’s wise to obtain help from a smart financial advisor.
Many people start with basic questions like: (1) How much money do I need to be able to retire? (2) What’s the real difference between a IRA and 401k? (3) How much should I save for retirement? (4) What’s the story on alternative investments? (5) ROTH IRA vs 401(k), which is better? The list of questions goes on and on. Finance and investing can be very complex and mind blowing sometimes.

Financial Planning Custer City
Our first goal in financial planning and helping you reach your financial goals is to first get a baseline of where you are today financially. Are you on track to achieve your financial and retirement goals? Lots of people have no idea at all. As we know for sure, before you can get to where you wish to go, you first need to determine where you are at this time.
With our plan and with keeping things easy, we have created a series of our own, custom retirement calculators like; a retirement savings calculator, a retirement planning calculator and various retirement planning tools that are quick and easy to use, yet very effective. Our simple retirement calculators are completely free to use and they are online, so you can go online and use them at any time it is convenient with you and your schedule.
Many of our clients use these frequently running various “what it” scenarios to see how little edits in their financial planning can impact their net results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you begin with could not be any simpler to use. You simply type in your age, the age you desire to retire, the amount you currently have saved for retirement now, how much you contribute on an annual basis, your desired yearly income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently realizing on your portfolio and the rate of return that you wish you will achieve during your retirement years. It’s that simple. Now you just click the calculate button.
The results of your inputs pull up right away. It will clearly show you if you are on track to reach your retirement goals or not, and if not, it will tell you exactly how far away you are in funds, years and percentages. If you’re not on goal, it will even show you the 4 key areas that you can make changes to to make sure you reach your goals. Based on your findings you can go back and key in some different combinations of amounts and keep going back and forth and see if you can reasonably make adjustments to obtain your investment goals.
It’s really quite fun to do. For most people it’s a real shocker. Discovering where you are right now and being honest about your current situation is half the battle.
Note: We work with a lot of high net worth investors who love using our strategies to grow their funds and protect themselves from rising tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their money private and off the grid. However, quite a few of our clients consider themselves to be mostly average.
If you are not on track to obtain your financial goals, please don’t be discouraged. Today 61% of Americans fear running out of money during retirement more than they fear death itself! Our goal and our job is to work with you and help you get your finances on track and help you create a lifetime, tax-free retirement income that will last as long as you live.

As financial planners, usually our next step is to help protect you from spending more than you should on taxes and also protect you from what we think will be, future tax rate increases. Did you know that the dollars most Americans spend on taxes is the single biggest financial expenditure of their life? Lots of people have no idea, yet it is true for most of us. The average American spends more on taxes than they do on any other expense.
That’s why it is so important for us to focus on this major expenditure and reduce your taxes as much as possible. We believe that our primary financial plan that we happen to call The Barefoot Retirement Plan is the single best way to protect yourself and save on taxes that’s legally allowed in this great country of ours. It really is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our program works.
You contribute after taxed dollars to the plan. Yes, unlike your IRA and 401(k) (which are called qualified plans) where you put in pre-taxed dollars, our program requires you to pay the tax on the funds before you put them in. On the surface this may not look as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please keep reading. We will clearly demonstrate how our plan will out perform these other plans, bar none!
You funds then grow tax differed within your account. If you need your funds for any reason at all like sickness, an unexpected expense, an unexpected opportunity or investment, college savings or anything at all, you can simply take your money out at any time. We will show you how you will be able to access your money at any time with no penalties, no fees and no taxes.
Then, when you retire, 100% of your retirement funds that you pull out to live on are completely and totally free of taxes. This is such a big thing. At the time this is being written, Bernie Sanders is running for President. He is advocating a 92% top Federal marginal tax rate. Yikes! Plus last week the US debt just surpassed the 19 Trillion mark. (If you look at our National Debt Clock, it will amaze you.) It only took us 13 months to go from 18 trillion to 19 trillion. With the way things are going these days, most experts believe that our future tax rates will have no option but to rise sharply.
By setting up a Barefoot Retirement Plan you can totally protect yourself from needing to pay any taxes on the funds you pull out. This one benefit alone can make or break most people’s retirement plan.
Retirement Planning Custer City
The next task we take in our retirement planning is to get you protected from market losses. Second to taxes, market losses are the next big cause that can ruin your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you planned to. Many investors lost upwards of 50% of their money in the Dot Com crash of 2000. Then, just as soon as most of them were just getting back to where they were before the last crash, we had the mortgage/housing market crash of 2007/2008 and many investors lost another 40% to 50% of everything.
Millions of hard working Americans were just getting ready to begin retirement. When the crash occurred and they lost about half of everything they had spent a lifetime creating, it was devastating. That is why the team at Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros works so hard every day. We want to get our clients 100% protected from market losses and crashes, and yes, it actually is possible.
With our one-of-a-kind plan you are 100% guaranteed not to lose a single cent due to market downturns, losses or crashes. I cannot even begin to express to you how much peace of mind this provides to our clients. Imagine how much easier you could sleep at night knowing that you were completely guaranteed not to lose a dollar in market declines. This one feature of the plan can make the difference between you having the retirement of your dreams or being devastated.
When you get our plan set up, when the market goes up, we lock in your gains each year. When the market goes down, you lose nothing and all of your previous gains are locked in and protected from losses. Our unique plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Custer City
We also assist our clients with wealth management to insure they reach their investing and financial goals. One of the powerful benefits of our unique and patented flagship plan that we offer is that our program gives you the option, if you want to use it, to leverage your returns and actually earn 2 different returns, on the same money, at the same time. Yes, we know the first time people hear this, it sounds too good to be true and may even question if it is legal. We promise you this is squeaky clean and as legal as legal gets.
Until recently plans like ours have primarily been used by wealthy families, politicians and giant corporations. Believe me, they certainly know the best ways to protect their wealth from taxes and losses. That’s why they use these plans so widely. Now these plans are more available to the average person and not just the wealthy.
Here is a high level look at how the leveraging option could work. Many clients choose our blended index account that has a zero percent floor and a 17% cap. So if the value of the indexes’ tracked goes up twenty percent in a given year, you earn 17% on your funds, and your gains are always locked in. Or, if the value of the indexes goes down 20%, you maintain your zero percent floor and experience no losses at all.
You then have the option to borrow the majority of the funds from your account. (You have to do this correctly and we’ll show you how), and you can then invest those funds into ANYTHING in the world that you wish. You don’t have to seek permission from anyone to do this. You are not limited to a list of investment options. You get to choose to put your funds into anything you want or need to, no problem.
Let’s use an example. Say you have $100,000 in your Barefoot Retirement account. That 100k earns between 0% to seventeen percent each year. Then you decide to borrow $80,000 from the account and put it into a profitable real estate deal you found. Since you borrowed the funds from your account and did not take them out, your account value remains $100,000 and you continue to earn the 0% to seventeen percent on the entire 100k account value.
Additionally you earn whatever return you get on your 80k that you put into your real estate investment. So you are actually earning 2 different returns on the same money at the same time. This is a powerful strategy and can have a very positive impact on your total returns.
We could go on and on about all of the many benefits of this powerful plan but we are limited in space here. The best way to get more information on this program is to give us a call. We’re happy to speak with you and answer any of your questions. More importantly we are happy to schedule a free 15 minute phone consultation with you to best determine if this could be a good fit for you and if so, we can run some numbers and show you exactly what a Barefoot Retirement Plan would look like for you.
I encourage you to take action now. You know how things pop up and our attention can be lost in a moment. This is far too important to leave to chance. Don’t wait. You have nothing to lose. Give us a call right now and at least take the first step towards what could be the best move of your life. We’re looking forward to talking with you.
