Many people start with basic questions like: (1) How much do I need to retire? (2) How much money do you need to retire? (3) How much should I save for retirement?

Financial Planning Mountain View
Our first step in financial planning and helping you succeed financially is to first get a benchmark of where you are today financially. Are you on track to exceed your financial and retirement goals? Scores of people have no idea at all. As we know, before you can get to where you wish to go, you first need to find out 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 quick and easy to use, yet very effective. Our simple retirement calculators are totally 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.
Lots of our clients use these frequently running various “what it” scenarios to see how small shifts in their financial planning can impact their total results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you start with could not be any easier to use. You simply plug in your age, the age you desire to retire, the amount you currently have saved for retirement now, how much you add to on an annual basis, your desired annual income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently earning on your accounts and the rate of return that you think you will achieve during your retirement years. That’s all there is. Then you just click the calculate button.
The results of your inputs pull up right away. 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 off you are in funds, years and percentages. If you’re not on track, the retirement calculator will even show you the four main areas that you can make changes to to make sure you reach your goals. Based on your findings you can go back and plug in some different combinations of numbers and keep going back and forth and see if you can reasonably make changes to obtain your financial goals.
It’s really very fun to do. For most people it’s a real shocker. Discovering where you are right now and being honest about your current standings is half the battle.
Note: We work with a lot of high net worth people who love using our strategies to grow their net worth and protect themselves from rising tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their money private and off the Government radar. However, lots of our clients consider themselves to be pretty average.
If you are not on track to achieve 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.
Mountain View Financial Planners
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 think will be, future tax rate increases. Did you know that the amount most Americans spend on taxes is the single largest financial expenditure of their life time? Most 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 expenditure and reduce your taxes as much as possible. We believe that our primary financial program that we happen to call The Barefoot Retirement Plan is the single best 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 program works.
You put in post taxed dollars to our 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 contribute it. On the surface this may not seem as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please trust us. We will clearly demonstrate how our program will out perform 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 emergency, an unexpected expense, an unexpected opportunity or investment, university savings or anything at all, you can simply take your money out at any time. We will show you how you will be able to get your funds 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 such a big thing. At the time this is being written, Bernie Sanders is running for President. He is suggesting a 92% top Federal marginal tax rate. Yikes! 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 now, most experts believe that our future tax rates will have no choice but to rise significantly.
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 hopes and dreams.
Retirement Planning Mountain View
The next action we take in successful retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the market. Next to taxes, stock market losses are the next big thing that can ruin your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you planned to. Large numbers of investors lost upwards of 50% of their funds 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 just about 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 strive to get our clients 100% protected from market losses and crashes, and yes, it actually is possible.
With our one-of-a-kind plan you are 100% guaranteed not to lose a single dollar 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 better you could sleep at night knowing that you were completely guaranteed not to lose a dime 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 devastated.
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 your previous gains are locked in and protected from losses. Our unique plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Mountain View
We also assist our clients with wealth management to insure they reach their investment and financial goals. One of the amazing benefits of our unique and patented flagship program that we offer is that our program gives you the option, if you wish 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 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 huge corporations. Believe me, they certainly 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 main stream and not just the wealthy.
Here is a high level look at how the leveraging option could work. Many of our clients choose the 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 seventeen percent on your account, and your gains are always locked in. Or, if the value of the indexes goes down twenty percent, you maintain your zero percent floor and have 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 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 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 $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 100k 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 2 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 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 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.
