Financial Advisor Shady Grove
Are you seeking a financial advisor to help with your financial planning and retirement planning? If so, you’ve found the best place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are experienced financial advisors. First off, congratulations on being wise enough to seek professional help in this most important part of your life.
As you already know, we only get one chance at life and one chance to get this right. Life goes by way 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 ground. The longer you put this off, the harder it will be to make up lost ground and obtain your retirement goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, just 52% of investors look to get the help of a financial advisor or financial planner. They also discovered that investors who do seek out professional help have more profitable financial results than those who do not. It’s smart to get help from a good financial advisor.
Most people start with basic questions like: (1) How much money do I need to retire? (2) How much money do you need to retire? (3) How much should I save for retirement? (4) What’s the story on alternative investments? (5) How can I save on taxes? The list of questions goes on and on. Finances and investing can be very complex and mind blowing sometimes.
We specialize in providing simple, proven and very effective financial strategies to help you reach your financial and retirement goals. After all, we have learned if a solution it too complex to grasp, it will be too complicated to set up and watch and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we know to keep things simple.
Financial Planning Shady Grove
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 exceed your financial and retirement goals? Lots of people have no idea what-so-ever. As we know, before you can get to where you wish to go, you first need to learn where you are right now.
With our plan and with keeping things easy, 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 really easy to use, yet very effective. Our simple retirement calculators are totally 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” scenarios 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 simpler to use. You simply type in your age, the age you wish to retire, the amount you currently have saved for retirement now, how much you contribute on an annual basis, your desired yearly income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently earning on your retirement and the rate of return that you estimate you will achieve during your retirement years. It’s that simple. Now you simply click the calculate button.
The results of your inputs pull up immediately. It will show 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 goal, the calculator will even show you the 4 critical areas that you can change to help you obtain your goals. Based on those findings you can go back and key in some different combinations of amounts and keep going back and forth to see if you can reasonably make edits to achieve your goals.
It’s really much fun to do. For most people it’s a real eye-opener. Knowing where you are now and being honest about your current situation is half the battle.
Note: We work with a lot of high net worth people who love using our plans to grow their funds and protect themselves from rising tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their investments private and off the radar. However, lots of our clients consider themselves to be pretty 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 last.

As financial planners, usually 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 amount most Americans spend on taxes is the single biggest financial cost 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 single expenditure.
That’s why it is so important to focus on this major expense and reduce your taxes as much as you can. We believe that our main 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’s legally allowed in this fantastic country of ours. It really is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our plan works.
You contribute post taxed dollars to the plan. Yes, unlike an IRA and 401(k) (which are called qualified plans) where you invest pre-taxed dollars, our program requires you to pay the tax on the money before you put them in. On the surface this may not look as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please stay tuned. We will clearly demonstrate how our program will significantly out perform these other plans, bar none!
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 at all, you can simply take your funds out at any time. We will show you exactly how you will be able to take out 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 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 at this time, 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 money you pull out. This one benefit alone can make or break most people’s retirement plans.
Retirement Planning Shady Grove
The next action we take in successful retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the stock market. Next to taxes, market losses are the next big cause that can end your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you wanted to. Many investors lost upwards of 50% of their accounts in the Dot Com crash of 2000. Then, just 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 triggered and they lost almost half of everything they had spent a lifetime creating, 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 stock market losses and crashes, and yes, it actually is possible.
With our unique plan you are totally guaranteed not to lose a single cent due to market downturns, losses or crashes. I cannot even begin to tell you how much peace of mind this makes possible to our clients. Imagine how much nicer you could sleep at night knowing that you were 100% guaranteed not to lose a dime in stock market declines. This one feature of our 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 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. Our plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Shady Grove
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 plan that we offer is that it gives you the option, if you choose to use it, to leverage your returns and actually earn 2 different returns, on the exact 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 promise you this is squeaky clean and as legal as legal gets.
Until recently plans like ours have mostly been used by wealthy families, politicians and mega corporations. Believe me, they do 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 main stream and not just the rich.
Here is a high level look at how the leveraging option could work. Many of our 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 zero percent 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 get 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 100k earns between 0% to seventeen percent each year. Then you decide to borrow 80k from the account and put it into a great 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 17% on the entire $100,000 account value.
Additionally you earn whatever return you get on your 80k that you put into your real estate deal. So you are actually 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 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 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.
