They also revealed that those who do seek out professional help have more profitable financial performance than individuals who do not. It’s wise to find help from a knowledgeable financial advisor.
Many people start with basic questions like: (1) How much savings do I need to retire? (2) How much to save for retirement? (3) How much do I need to save for retirement?

Financial Planning Helena
Our first goal in financial planning and helping you reach your financial goals is to first get a starting point of where you are today financially. Are you on track to exceed your financial and retirement goals? Lots of people have no idea at all. As we understand, before you can get to where you wish to go, you first need to find out 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 super 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” calculations to see how small changes in their financial planning can impact their total results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you use could not be any easier to use. You simply key in your age, the age you would like 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 earning on your retirement and the rate of return that you believe you will achieve during your retirement years. It’s that easy. Then you simply click the calculate button.
The results of your numbers pull up right away. It will show you if you are on track to reach your retirement goals or not, and if not, it will show you exactly how far off you are in funds, years and percentages. If you are not on goal, the calculator will even show you the 4 critical areas that you can change to help 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 find out if you can reasonably make edits to obtain your investment 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 finances is half the battle.
Note: We work with a lot of high net worth clients who love using our strategies to grow their net worth and protect themselves from soaring tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their investments private and off the radar. However, lots 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 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 last.

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 biggest financial expenditure of their life? Most people have no clue, yet it is true for most of us. The average American spends more on taxes than they do on on any other single expenditure.
That’s why it is most important for us to focus on this major cost and reduce your taxes as much as possible. We believe that our best financial program that we happen to call The Barefoot Retirement Plan is the single best way to protect yourself and save on taxes that is legally allowed in this great country of ours. It truly is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our plan works.
You contribute after taxed dollars to the plan. Yes, unlike an IRA and 401(k) (which are called qualified plans) where you invest pre-taxed dollars, our plan requires you to pay the tax on the money before you put them in. On the surface this may not seem as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please stay tuned. We will clearly demonstrate 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, college savings or anything under the sun, 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 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 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 shock you.) It only took us 13 months to go from 18 trillion to 19 trillion. With the way things are going now, most experts believe that our future tax rates will have no option but to rise significantly.
By setting up a Barefoot Retirement Plan you can completely 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 plan.
Retirement Planning Helena
The next task we take in our retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the market. Next to taxes, stock market losses are the next big event that can destroy your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you needed to. Far too many investors lost upwards of 50% of their accounts in the Dot Com crash of 2000. Then, just 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 their money.
Millions of hard working Americans were just getting ready to retire. When the crash occurred and they lost just 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 strive to get our clients 100% protected from stock market losses and crashes, and yes, it actually is possible.
With our unique plan you are totally 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 brings to our clients. Imagine how much nicer you could sleep at night knowing that you were guaranteed not to lose a dollar 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 not.
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 Helena
We also assist our clients with wealth management to insure they reach their investing and financial goals. One of the strong benefits of our unique and patented flagship plan 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 same money, 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 this is squeaky clean and as legal as legal gets.
Until recently plans like ours have mostly been used by wealthy families, politicians and giant corporations. Believe me, they 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 of our clients choose our blended index option that has a 0% floor and a seventeen percent cap. So if the value of the indexes’ tracked goes up 20% 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 0% floor and suffer 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 world 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 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 $100,000 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 $100,000 and you continue to earn the zero percent 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 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 amazing 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 hesitate. 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.
