Are you seeking a financial advisor to help with your financial planning and retirement planning? If so, you’ve come to the best place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are experienced financial advisors. First of all, congratulations on being smart enough to look for professional help in this very important area of your life.
As you already know, we only get one chance in life and one chance to do this right. Life goes by far 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 ground. The longer you delay, the more difficult it will be to produce better returns and reach your financial goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, only 52% of people seek out the assistance of a financial advisor or financial planner. Forbes also discovered that pre-retirees who do look for professional help have more profitable financial returns than individuals who do not. It’s good to obtain help from a knowledgeable financial advisor.
Most 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 an IRA vs 401k? (3) How much will I need to retire? (4) What alternative investments can I invest in? (5) What can I do to insure I never lose money? The list of questions goes on and on. Finance and investing can be very complex and mind boggling sometimes.
We specialize in providing simple, proven and very effective financial strategies to help you reach your financial and retirement goals. After all, we have learned if a solution it too complicated to grasp, it will be too difficult to use and review and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we always keep things simple.
Financial Planning Enid
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 obtain your financial and retirement goals? Scores of people have no idea what-so-ever. As we know for sure, before you can get to where you want to go, you first need to determine where you are at this time.
With our plan and with keeping things simple, we have developed 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 completely free to use and they are online, so you can access and use them at any time it is convenient with you and your schedule.
Many of our clients use them frequently running various “what it” calculations to see how small shifts in their financial planning can impact their overall 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 want to retire, the amount you currently have saved for retirement now, how much you put in on an annual basis, your desired yearly income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently earning on your retirement and the rate of return that you wish you will achieve during your retirement years. That’s all there is. Now you simply click the calculate button.
The results of your inputs pull up immediately. It will tell 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 four key areas that you can change to make sure you obtain your goals. Based on those 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 changes to reach your investment goals.
It’s really quite fun to do. For most people it’s a real shocker. Knowing where you are now and being honest about your current standings is half the battle.
Note: We work with quite a few high net worth clients who love using our strategies to grow their accounts and protect themselves from soaring tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their accounts private and off the Government grid. However, many of our clients consider themselves to be financially average.
If you are not on track to obtain your investment 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 last.
Enid Financial Planners
As financial planners, often our next step is to help protect you from spending more than you need to on taxes and also protect you from what we believe will be, future tax rate increases. Did you know that the amount most Americans spend on taxes is the single biggest 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 so important for us to focus on this major expenditure and reduce your taxes as much as you can. We believe that our main financial plan that we happen to call The Barefoot Retirement Plan is the single most successful way to protect yourself and save on taxes that is legally allowed in this great country of ours. It really is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our plan works.
You invest after taxed dollars to The Barefoot Retirement Plan. Yes, unlike your IRA and 401(k) (which are called qualified plans) where you invest 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 seem as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please keep an open mind. We will clearly show you how our plan will significantly out perform 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 emergency, an unexpected expense, an unexpected opportunity or investment, university savings or anything under the sun, you can simply take your funds out at any time. We will show you how you will be able to get your funds 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 proposing 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 at this time, most experts believe that the future tax rates will have no option but to rise sharply.
By setting up a Barefoot Retirement Plan you can completely protect yourself from needing to pay any taxes on the money you pull out. This one benefit alone can make or break most people’s retirement plans.
Retirement Planning Enid
The next action we take in successful retirement planning is to get you protected from market losses. Next to taxes, market losses are the next big thing that can crush your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you needed to. Large numbers of investors lost upwards of 50% of their money in the Dot Com crash of 2000. Then, just as soon as many 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 their money.
Millions of hard working Americans were just getting ready to begin retirement. When the crash occurred and they lost almost 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 strive to get our clients 100% protected from market losses and crashes, and yes, it actually 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 brings to our clients. Imagine how much easier you could sleep at night knowing that you were completely guaranteed not to lose a cent in stock market declines. This one feature of The Barefoot Retirement 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, you lock in your gains each year. When the market goes down, you lose nothing and your previous gains are locked in and protected from losses. Our unique plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Enid
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 program that we offer is that our plan gives you the option, if you choose to use it, to leverage your returns and actually earn 2 different returns, on the exact same money, at the same time. Yes, we know the first time you 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 huge corporations. Believe me, they 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 plan that has a 0% floor and a 17% cap. So if the value of the indexes’ tracked goes up 20% 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 have no losses at all.
You then have the option to borrow the majority of the money 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 planet 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 can choose to put your funds into anything you want or need to, no problem.
Let’s use an example. Say you have 100k in your Barefoot Retirement account. That 100k earns between 0% to 17% each year. Then you decide to borrow $80,000 from the account and put it into a great real estate deal you found. Since you borrowed the funds from your account and did not take them out, your account value remains 100k and you continue to earn the 0% to seventeen percent on the entire $100,000 account value.
Additionally you earn whatever return you get on your $80,000 that you put into your real estate investment. So you are affectively earning 2 different returns on the same funds 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 plan 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 might 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.
