As you know, we only get this one chance in life and one chance to get this right. Life goes by much too fast. If we try and go it alone and come in short of where we ought to be, it’s often challenging to make up for lost funds. The longer you put this off, the harder it will be to produce better returns and obtain your retirement goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, just 52% of people ask for the help of a financial advisor or financial planner. Forbes also found that pre-retirees who do obtain professional help have more successful financial gains than individuals who do not. It’s smart to seek help from a experienced financial advisor.
Lots of people start with basic questions like: (1) How much do I need to retire? (2) How much to save for retirement? (3) How much should I save for retirement? (4) What’s the story on alternative investments? (5) 401k vs ROTH IRA, which is better? The list of questions goes on and on. Money and investing can be very complex and mind blowing sometimes.
We focus on providing simple, proven and very effective financial strategies to help clients reach your financial and retirement goals.

Financial Planning Elmore City
Our first step in financial planning and helping you succeed financially is to first get a starting point of where you are today financially. Are you on track to exceed your financial and retirement goals? Many people have no idea in the world. As we know for sure, before you can get to where you need to go, you first need to discover where you are at this time.
In our alignment with keeping things simple, we have produced a series of our own, custom retirement calculators like; a retirement savings calculator, a retirement planning calculator and various retirement planning tools that are simple and easy to use, yet very effective. Our simple retirement calculators are 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 them very often running various “what it” scenarios to see how minor tweaks in their financial planning can impact their net results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you start with could not be any easier to use. You simply type in your age, the age you want to retire, the amount you currently have saved for retirement now, how much you add to on an annual basis, your desired yearly income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently earning on your portfolio and the rate of return that you estimate you will achieve during your retirement years. That’s all there is. Now you simply click the calculate button.
The results of your numbers pull up immediately. It will tell you if you are on track to obtain your retirement goals or not, and if not, it will tell you exactly how far off you are in funds, years and percentages. If you are not on goal, the retirement calculator will even show you the 4 critical areas that you can change to make sure you reach your goals. Based on the findings you can go back and plug in some different combinations of numbers and keep going back and forth and find out if you can reasonably make adjustments to obtain your retirement goals.
It’s really quite fun to do. For most people it’s a real eye-opener. Knowing where you are right now and being honest about your current standings is half the battle.
Note: We work with many high net worth individuals who love using our strategies to grow their net worth and protect themselves from rising tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their investments private and off the Government radar. However, most of our clients consider themselves to be financially average.
If you are not on track to reach 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 objective 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 do.
Elmore City Financial Planners
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 believe will be, future tax rate increases. Did you know that the dollars most Americans spend on taxes is the single largest financial expenditure of their life? Lots of people have no clue, 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 most important for us to focus on this major expense and reduce your taxes as much as possible. We believe that our flagship financial plan that we happen to call The Barefoot Retirement Plan is the single most effective way to protect yourself and save on taxes that’s legally allowed in this fantastic country of ours. It truly is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our program works.
You put in post taxed dollars to the program. Yes, unlike your IRA and 401(k) (which are called qualified plans) where you contribute pre-taxed dollars, our plan requires you to pay the tax on the money before you invest it. On the surface this may not seem as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please trust us. We will clearly show you how our program will beat the pants off of these other plans, without a doubt!
You funds then grow tax differed within your account. If you need the funds for any reason at all like an illness, an unexpected expense, an unexpected opportunity or investment, college or anything under the sun, you can simply take your funds out at any time. We will show you exactly how you will be able to take out your money at any time with zero penalties, no fees and no taxes.
Then, when you retire, ALL of your retirement funds that you pull out to live on are completely and totally free of taxes. This is so powerful. At the time this is being written, Bernie Sanders is running for President. He is suggesting a 92% top Federal marginal tax rate. Wow! 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 choice but to rise sharply.
By setting up a Barefoot Retirement Plan you can 100% protect yourself from having to pay any taxes on the funds you pull out. This one benefit alone can make or break most people’s retirement dreams.
Retirement Planning Elmore City
The next task we take in successful retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the stock market. Second to taxes, stock market losses are the next big thing that can crush 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 many of them were just getting back to where they were before the last crash, we had the next market crash of 2007/2008 and many investors lost another 40% to 50% of their portfolios.
Millions of hard working Americans were just getting ready to retire. When the crash happened 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 work to get our clients 100% protected from stock market losses and crashes, and yes, it really is possible.
With our unique plan you are completely guaranteed not to lose a single cent due to market downturns, losses or crashes. I cannot even begin to tell you how much peace of mind this provides to our clients. Imagine how much nicer you could sleep at night knowing that you were 100% guaranteed not to lose a penny in market declines. This one feature of the plan can make the difference between you having the retirement of your dreams or being wiped out.
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. This plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Elmore City
We also assist our clients with wealth management to insure they reach their investing and financial goals. One of the amazing benefits of our unique and patented flagship plan that we offer is that it gives you the option, if you wish 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 assure you this is squeaky clean and as legal as legal gets.
Until recently plans like ours have mainly been used by wealthy families, politicians and huge corporations. Believe me, they do know the best ways to protect their funds 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 option that has a 0% 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 account, and your gains are always locked in. Or, if the value of the indexes goes down 20%, you maintain your 0% floor and suffer 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 that money into ANYTHING under the sun that you wish. You don’t have to ask permission from anyone to do this. You are not limited to a list of investment options. You get to choose to put your money 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 17% on the entire 100k account value.
Additionally you earn whatever return you get on your $80,000 that you put into your real estate deal. So you are actually earning two 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 patented 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 talk 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 could 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.
