Fort Cobb Financial Advisor – Financial Planning & Retirement Planning Pros 405-418-6266
Financial Advisor Fort Cobb
Are you looking for a financial advisor to assist with your financial planning and retirement planning? If so, you’ve come to the right place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are experienced financial advisors. First of all, congrats on being brilliant enough to look for professional help in this really important part of your life.
As you already know, we only get one chance in life and one chance to get this right. Life goes by far too fast. If we attempt to go it alone and fall short of where we ought to be, it’s often hard to make up for lost funds. The longer you put this off, the more difficult it will be to come back and achieve your portfolio goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, only 52% of people look to get the assistance of a financial advisor or financial planner. The survey also discovered that people who do ask for professional help have more profitable financial gains than pre-retirees who do not. It’s really smart to ask for help from a smart financial advisor.
Lots of 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’s the story on alternative investments? (5) ROTH IRA vs 401(k), 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. After all, we know if a solution it too complicated to understand, it will be too difficult to implement and watch and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we like to keep things simple.

Our first goal in financial planning and helping you reach your financial goals is to first get a benchmark 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 understand, before you can get to where you need to go, you first need to find out where you are right now.
With our plan and with keeping things easy, 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 totally free to use and they are online, so you can log in and use them at any time it is convenient with you and your schedule.
Many of our clients use these all the time running various “what it” concepts to see how little shifts in their financial planning can impact their total results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you use could not be any simpler to use. You simply enter 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 annual income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently realizing on your retirement and the rate of return that you wish you will achieve during your retirement years. It’s that simple. You then just 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 are not on track, the calculator will even show you the four main areas that you can change to make sure you obtain your goals. Based on those findings you can go back and key in some different combinations of amounts and keep going back and forth and find out if you can reasonably make edits to reach your investment goals.
It’s really quite fun to do. For most people it’s a real eye-opener. Finding out where you are now and being honest about your current situation is half the battle.
Note: We work with a lot of high net worth people who love using our plans to grow their portfolios and protect themselves from soaring tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their funds 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 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 live.

As financial planners, usually 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 expense of their life? Most people have no idea, yet it is true for most of us. The average American spends more on taxes than they do on their mortgage payments, car payments and college for their kids, etc.
That’s why it is most important to focus on this major expense and reduce your taxes as much as possible. We believe that our top 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 really is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our plan works.
You invest post taxed dollars to the program. Yes, unlike an 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 money before you contribute it. 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 program will significantly out perform these other plans, bar none!
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 savings or anything at all, you can simply take your funds out at any time. We will show you 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, 100% of your retirement funds that you pull out to live on are completely and totally free of taxes. This is such a powerful thing. At the time this is being written, Bernie Sanders is running for President. He is wanting 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 blow you away.) 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 completely protect yourself from having 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 Fort Cobb
The next action we take in successful retirement planning is to get you protected from market losses. Second to taxes, stock market losses are the next big thing that can destroy your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you planned to. Many investors lost upwards of 50% of their accounts 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 retirement accounts.
Millions of hard working Americans were just getting ready to retire. When the crash triggered and they lost almost half of everything they had spent a lifetime working for, 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 actually is possible.
With our unique plan you are completely guaranteed not to lose a single penny due to market downturns, losses or crashes. I cannot even begin to tell you how much peace of mind this gives 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 all of your previous gains are locked in and protected from losses. This plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Fort Cobb
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 the 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 funds, at the same time. Yes, we know the first time most people hear this, it sounds too good to be true and may even question if it is legal. We promise you it 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 rich.
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 seventeen percent cap. So if the value of the indexes’ tracked goes up twenty percent in a given year, you earn 17% on your money, and your gains are always locked in. Or, if the value of the indexes goes down twenty percent, 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 get permission from anyone to do this. You are not limited to a list of investment options. You can choose to put your money 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 sweet 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 zero percent to 17% on the entire 100k account value.
Additionally you earn whatever return you get on your 80k that you put into your real estate deal. So you are actually earning two 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 may 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.
