Financial Advisor Konawa
Are you seeking a financial advisor to help with your financial planning and retirement planning? If that’s right, you’ve arrived at the best place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are knowledgeable financial advisors. First off, congrats on being smart enough to seek professional help in this very important area of your life.
As you know, we only get this one chance at life and one chance to do this right. Life goes by far too fast. If we attempt to go it alone and fall short of where we need to be, it’s often hard to make up for lost funds. The longer you delay, the harder it will be to fight your way back and achieve your financial goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, only 52% of pre-retirees ask for the assistance of a financial advisor or financial planner. The survey also found that individuals who do look for professional help have more profitable financial returns than pre-retirees who do not. It’s wise to seek help from a good 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 Individual Retirement Account and an 401k? (3) How much do I need to save for retirement? (4) What alternative investments can I invest in? (5) 401k vs ROTH IRA, which is better? The list of questions goes on and on. Finances 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 realize if a solution it too difficult to grasp, it will be too challenging to set up and review and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we know to keep things simple.

Our first goal in financial planning and helping you succeed financially is to first get a baseline of where you are today financially. Are you on track to achieve your financial and retirement goals? Scores of people have no idea at all. As we understand, before you can get to where you want 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 super 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.
Lots of our clients use these very often running various “what it” calculations to see how little shifts in their financial planning can impact their overall results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you begin with 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 contribute on an annual basis, your desired annual income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently earning on your portfolio and the rate of return that you wish you will achieve during your retirement years. That’s all there is. Now you just click the calculate button.
The results of your inputs pull up instantly. It will tell you if you are on track to achieve your retirement goals or not, and if not, it will show you exactly how far away you are in funds, years and percentages. If you’re not on goal, the retirement calculator will even show you the four main areas that you can change to insure 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 edits to obtain your investment goals.
It’s really very fun to do. For most people it’s a real eye-opener. Discovering where you are right now and being honest about your current situation is half the battle.
Note: We work with quite a few high net worth people who love using our plans to grow their accounts and protect themselves from soaring tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their funds private and off the radar. However, quite a few of our clients consider themselves to be mostly 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 do.

As financial planners, most often 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 largest financial expenditure of their life? Many people have no idea, yet it is true for most of us. The average American spends more on taxes than they do on on any other expenditure
That’s why it is most important to focus on this major cost and reduce your taxes as much as possible. We believe that our main 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 great country of ours. It truly is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our plan works.
You invest post taxed dollars to the plan. Yes, unlike your 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 funds 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 show you how our plan will blow away these other plans, without a doubt!
You funds then grow tax differed within your account. If you need your funds for any reason at all like an illness, 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 exactly how you will be able to get your money at any time you wish 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 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 shock 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 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 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 Konawa
The next step we take in successful retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the stock market. Second to taxes, market losses are the next big issue that can crush your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you planned to. Large numbers of 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 next 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 almost half of everything they had spent a lifetime building up, 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 100% guaranteed not to lose a single dime 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 better you could sleep at night knowing that you were completely guaranteed not to lose a penny in market declines. This one feature by itself can make the difference between you having the retirement of your dreams or not.
When you get our plan set up, when the stock 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 Konawa
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 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 same funds, 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 it 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 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 the blended index plan that has a zero percent 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 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 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 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 zero percent to 17% each year. Then you decide to borrow 80k 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 0% 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 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 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 might 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.
