Financial Advisor Shidler
Are you looking for a financial advisor to assist with your financial planning and retirement planning? If that’s right, you’ve come to the right place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are experienced financial advisors. First of all, congratulations on being brilliant enough to look for professional help in this very important area of your life.
As you already know, we only get this one chance at life and one chance to make this right. Life goes by much too fast. If we decide to go it alone and come in short of where we should be, it’s often difficult to make up for lost funds. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to come back and reach your retirement goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, only 52% of investors seek out the assistance of a financial advisor or financial planner. They also revealed that those who do seek out professional help have more successful financial gains than those who do not. It’s wise to ask for help from a smart financial advisor.
Most people start with basic questions like: (1) How much money do I need to be able to retire? (2) How much to save for retirement? (3) How much should I save for retirement? (4) What alternative investments can I invest in? (5) Do I need life insurance? The list of questions goes on and on. Money 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 know if a solution it too difficult 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 always 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 reach your financial and retirement goals? Lots of people have no idea at all. As we know, before you can get to where you want to go, you first need to determine where you are at this time.
In our alignment with keeping things easy, 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 user friendly 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.
Lots of our clients use them very often running various “what it” scenarios to see how minor tweaks in their financial planning can impact their overall results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you use could not be any easier to use. You simply enter in your age, the age you wish to retire, the amount you currently have saved for retirement now, how much you invest on an annual basis, your desired yearly income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently earning on your investments and the rate of return that you estimate you will achieve during your retirement years. That’s all there is. You then just click the calculate button.
The results of your numbers pull up right away. It will tell you if you are on track to reach 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 retirement calculator will even show you the four main areas that you can make changes to 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 reach your retirement goals.
It’s really quite fun to do. For most people it’s a real shocker. Discovering where you are now and being honest about your current standings is half the battle.
Note: We work with a lot of high net worth clients who love using our strategies to grow their portfolios and protect themselves from rising tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their money private and off the grid. However, most of our clients consider themselves to be mostly 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.
Shidler Financial Planners
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 think will be, future tax rate increases. Did you know that the dollars most Americans spend on taxes is the single biggest 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 single expenditure.
That’s why it is most important for us to focus on this major cost and reduce your taxes as much as possible. We believe that our primary financial plan 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 program works.
You invest post taxed dollars to the plan. Yes, unlike an IRA and 401(k) (which are called qualified plans) where you contribute pre-taxed dollars, our plan requires you to pay the tax on the funds before you put them in. On the surface this may not appear as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please stay tuned. We will clearly demonstrate how our program will blow away 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 emergency, an unexpected expense, an unexpected opportunity or investment, college or anything at all, you can simply take your money out at any time. We will show you exactly how you will be able to get your money at any time with zero 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 powerful thing. At the time this is being written, Bernie Sanders is running for President. He is proposing 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 shock you.) It only took us 13 months to go from 18 trillion to 19 trillion. With the way things are going these days, most experts believe that the future tax rates will have no choice 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.
Retirement Planning Shidler
The next task 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 issue that can destroy your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you planned to. Many investors lost upwards of 50% of their money in the Dot Com crash of 2000. Then, just as soon as most 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 occurred and they lost about half of everything they had spent a lifetime working for, 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 market losses and crashes, and yes, it actually is possible.
With our one-of-a-kind plan you are totally guaranteed not to lose a single dollar due to market downturns, losses or crashes. I cannot even begin to tell you how much peace of mind this gives to our clients. Imagine how much better you could sleep at night knowing that you were guaranteed not to lose a dime in market declines. This one feature of the plan can make the difference between you having the retirement of your dreams or being wiped out.
When you get our plan set up, when the market goes up, you 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 Shidler
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 plan 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 guarantee 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 do 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 rich.
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 zero percent floor and a 17% cap. So if the value of the indexes’ tracked goes up 20% in a given year, you earn 17% on your funds, and your gains are always locked in. Or, if the value of the indexes goes down twenty percent, you maintain your 0% 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 seek 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 $100,000 in your Barefoot Retirement account. That $100,000 earns between 0% 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 0% to seventeen percent on the entire 100k 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 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.
