Financial Advisor Paoli
Are you trying to find a financial advisor to assist with your financial planning and retirement planning? If that’s right, you’ve come to the perfect place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are experienced financial advisors. First of all, congrats on being smart enough to search for professional help in this most important area of your life.
As you know, we only get this one chance in life and one chance to do this right. Life goes by way too fast. If we decide to go it alone and fall short of where we need to be, it’s often challenging to make up for lost ground. The longer you wait, the more challenging it will be to catch up and achieve your retirement goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, only 52% of pre-retirees look to get the assistance of a financial advisor or financial planner. They also revealed that those who do ask for professional help have more successful financial results than those who do not. It’s smart to obtain help from a good financial advisor.
Lots of people start with basic questions like: (1) How much do I need to retire? (2) What’s the real difference between a IRA and 401k? (3) How much should I save for retirement? (4) What about alternative investments? (5) Do I need life insurance? The list of questions goes on and on. Finance and investing can be very complex and mind blowing sometimes.
We are known for 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 complicated to grasp, it will be too difficult to implement and review and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we keep things simple.

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? Most people have no idea in the world. As we understand, before you can get to where you want to go, you first need to discover where you are right now.
In our alignment 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 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 them very often running various “what it” scenarios to see how small changes in their financial planning can impact their end results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you begin with could not be any easier to use. You simply plug in your age, the age you would like to retire, the amount you currently have saved for retirement now, how much you invest on an annual basis, your desired annual income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently realizing on your accounts and the rate of return that you think you will achieve during your retirement years. That’s it. Now you simply click the calculate button.
The results of your inputs pull up right away. It will show you if you are on track to achieve 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 critical areas that you can make changes to to make sure you reach your goals. Based on those findings you can go back and plug in some different combinations of amounts and keep going back and forth and discover if you can reasonably make changes to achieve your financial goals.
It’s really very fun to do. For most people it’s a real shocker. Knowing where you are right now and being honest about your current finances is half the battle.
Note: We work with quite a few 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 investments private and off the Government radar. However, most of our clients consider themselves to be pretty average.
If you are not on track to achieve 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 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, 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 largest financial cost of their life? Many 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 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’s legally allowed in this fantastic country of ours. It truly is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our plan works.
You invest after taxed dollars to our plan. 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 funds before you put them in. On the surface this may not seem as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please keep reading. We will clearly demonstrate how our program will beat the pants off of 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, college or anything under the sun, you can simply take your money out at any time. We will show you exactly how you will be able to access your money at any time with no 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 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. Yikes! 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 the 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 funds you pull out. This one benefit alone can make or break most people’s retirement plans.

The next task we take in successful retirement planning is to get you protected from market losses. Second to taxes, stock market losses are the next big event that can crush your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you needed to. Many investors lost upwards of 50% of their money 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 their portfolios.
Millions of hard working Americans were just getting ready to begin retirement. When the crash happened and they lost almost half of everything they had spent a lifetime building up, it was devastating. That is why our team at Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros works so hard every day. We work to get our clients 100% protected from market losses and crashes, and yes, it really is possible.
With our patented plan you are completely 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 provides to our clients. Imagine how much easier 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 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 Paoli
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 program gives you the option, if you want 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 you hear this, it sounds too good to be true and may even question if it is legal. We assure you it is squeaky clean and as legal as legal gets.
Until recently plans like ours have mainly been used by wealthy families, politicians and giant corporations. Believe me, they certainly know the best ways to protect their money 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 clients choose our blended index option 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 seventeen percent 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 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 world that you wish. You don’t have to seek 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 $100,000 in your Barefoot Retirement account. That $100,000 earns between zero percent to seventeen percent 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 deal. So you are actually earning two 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 powerful 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 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 put this off. 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.
