Piedmont Financial Advisor – Financial Planning & Retirement Planning Pros 405-418-6266
Financial Advisor Piedmont
Are you trying to find a financial advisor to help with your financial planning and retirement planning? If so, you’ve come to the perfect place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are top notch financial advisors. First off, congratulations on being brilliant enough to seek out professional help in this critically important part of your life.
As you already know, we only get this one chance in life and one chance to get this right. Life goes by far too fast. If we try and 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 delay, the more difficult it will be to produce better returns and reach your retirement goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, just 52% of investors look to get the assistance of a financial advisor or financial planner. They also revealed that pre-retirees who do ask for professional help have better financial gains than investors who do not. It’s really smart to obtain help from a smart financial advisor.
Lots of people start with basic questions like: (1) How much do I need to retire? (2) How much to save for retirement? (3) How much should I save for retirement? (4) What about alternative investments? (5) ROTH IRA vs 401(k), 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 people reach your financial and retirement goals. After all, we have learned if a solution it too complex 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 keep things simple.
Financial Planning Piedmont
Our first goal 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 achieve your financial and retirement goals? Most people have no idea in the world. As we know, before you can get to where you want to go, you first need to learn where you are at this time.
With our plan and with keeping things simple, we have created 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 on and use them at any time it is convenient with you and your schedule.
Many of our clients use them all the time running various “what it” scenarios to see how little changes in their financial planning can impact their net results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you begin with could not be any easier to use. You simply enter 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 getting on your portfolio and the rate of return that you believe you will achieve during your retirement years. That’s all there is. Then you simply click the calculate button.
The results of your numbers pull up immediately. It will tell you if you are on track to obtain 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 track, the calculator will even show you the four main areas that you can change to be sure you reach your goals. Based on your findings you can go back and type in some different combinations of numbers and keep going back and forth and discover 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. Discovering where you are now and being honest about your current finances is half the battle.
Note: We work with quite a few high net worth investors who love using our plans to grow their funds and protect themselves from soaring tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their accounts private and off the radar. However, lots 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 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 live.

As financial planners, often 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 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 on any other expenditure
That’s why it is most important for us to focus on this major cost and reduce your taxes as much as you can. We believe that our best financial plan that we happen to call The Barefoot Retirement Plan is the single most powerful 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 post taxed dollars to The Barefoot Retirement 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 invest 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 demonstrate how our plan 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 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 funds at any time with no 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 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. Wow! Plus last week the US debt just surpassed the 19 Trillion mark. (If you look at our National Debt Clock, it will amaze 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 choice 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 Piedmont
The next action we take in successful retirement planning is to get you protected from market losses. Second to taxes, market losses are the next big thing that can destroy your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you hoped to. Large numbers of 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 portfolios.
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 creating, it was devastating. That is why the team at Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros works so hard every day. We want to get our clients 100% protected from stock market losses and crashes, and yes, it really is possible.
With our unique 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 brings to our clients. Imagine how much easier you could sleep at night knowing that you were guaranteed not to lose a dollar in stock market declines. This one feature by itself can make the difference between you having the retirement of your dreams or being devastated.
When you get our plan set up, when the stock 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. Our unique plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Piedmont
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 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 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 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 investor 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 seventeen percent cap. So if the value of the indexes’ tracked goes up 20% in a given year, you earn seventeen percent on your money, 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 that money into ANYTHING under the sun 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 100k earns between zero percent to seventeen percent each year. Then you decide to borrow 80k from the account and put it into a profitable 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 seventeen percent on the entire 100k account value.
Additionally you earn whatever return you get on your 80k that you put into your real estate investment. 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 powerful 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 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.
