Financial Advisor Pocasset
Are you trying to find a financial advisor to assist with your financial planning and retirement planning? If that’s right, you’ve arrived at the perfect place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are experienced financial advisors. First of all, congratulations on being smart enough to search for professional help in this most important area of your life.
As you already know, we only get one chance in life and one chance to make 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 results. The longer you hold off on this, the more difficult it will be to catch up and achieve your financial goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, only 52% of investors look to get the help of a financial advisor or financial planner. They also discovered that pre-retirees who do look for professional help have better financial performance than individuals who do not. It’s wise to ask for help from a smart financial advisor.
Lots of 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? (4) Do I need alternative investments? (5) What can I do to insure I never lose money? The list of questions goes on and on. Money and investing can be very complex and mind boggling sometimes.
We pride ourselves on providing simple, proven and very effective financial strategies to help our clients reach your financial and retirement goals. After all, we realize if a solution it too complicated to grasp, it will be too challenging to implement 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 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? Scores of people have no idea what-so-ever. As we know for sure, before you can get to where you want 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 quick and easy to use, yet very effective. Our simple retirement calculators are 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” ideas to see how minor edits 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 want 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 retirement and the rate of return that you wish you will achieve during your retirement years. It’s that easy. Now 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 tell you exactly how far away you are in funds, years and percentages. If you’re not on track, it will even show you the 4 main areas that you can make changes to to make sure you obtain your goals. Based on those findings you can go back and enter in some different combinations of numbers and keep going back and forth and find out if you can reasonably make edits to reach your investment goals.
It’s really much 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 many 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 funds private and off the grid. However, many of our clients consider themselves to be financially average.
If you are not on track to obtain your 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, 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 biggest financial expense of their life? Lots of 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 so important for us to focus on this major expense 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 most effective way to protect yourself and save on taxes that’s legally allowed in this great country of ours. It really is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our program works.
You put in post taxed dollars to our plan. Yes, unlike an IRA and 401(k) (which are called qualified plans) where you contribute pre-taxed dollars, our program 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 keep reading. We will clearly demonstrate how our program 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 sickness, 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 take out 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 so powerful. At the time this is being written, Bernie Sanders is running for President. He is proposing 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 our future tax rates will have no option but to rise significantly.
By setting up a Barefoot Retirement Plan you can 100% 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 dreams.

The next step we take in our retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the market. Second to taxes, market losses are the next big cause 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 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 retirement accounts.
Millions of hard working Americans were just getting ready to enter into retirement. When the crash triggered 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 really is possible.
With our one-of-a-kind plan you are 100% guaranteed not to lose a single penny 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 totally guaranteed not to lose a cent in stock market declines. This one feature of the 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 all of your previous gains are locked in and protected from losses. Our unique plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Pocasset
We also assist our clients with wealth management to insure they reach their investing and financial goals. One of the powerful 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 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 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 mega 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 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 the blended index option that has a 0% floor and a seventeen percent cap. So if the value of the indexes’ tracked goes up twenty percent 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 20%, 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 that money into ANYTHING in the world that you wish. You don’t have to get permission from anyone to do this. You are not limited to a list of investment options. You can 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 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 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 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 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.
