We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are experienced financial advisors. First of all, congrats on being brilliant enough to look for professional help in this really important part of your life.
As you already know, we only get one chance in life and one chance to make this right. Life goes by far too fast. If we attempt to go it alone and fall short of where we ought to be, it’s often hard to make up for lost results. The longer you hold off on this, the more challenging it will be to fight your way back and reach your retirement 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 found that those who do secure professional help have stronger financial gains than individuals who do not. It’s smart to ask for help from a good financial advisor.
Most people start with basic questions like: (1) How much money do I need to retire? (2) What’s the real difference between an Individual Retirement Account and an 401k? (3) How much should I save for retirement? (4) What alternative investments can I invest in? (5) SEP IRA vs ROTH IRA, which is better? The list of questions goes on and on. Money and investing can be very complex and mind blowing sometimes.
We focus on providing simple, proven and very effective financial strategies to help clients reach your financial and retirement goals. After all, we have learned if a solution it too difficult 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 like to keep things simple.
Financial Planning Tupelo
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 achieve your financial and retirement goals? Many people have no idea what-so-ever. As we know for sure, before you can get to where you need to go, you first need to discover where you are right now.
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 completely 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.
Many of our clients use these very often running various “what it” scenarios to see how minor tweaks in their financial planning can impact their end results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you start with could not be any simpler to use. You simply key in your age, the age you wish to retire, the amount you currently have saved for retirement now, how much you put in on an annual basis, your desired yearly income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently realizing on your accounts and the rate of return that you believe you will achieve during your retirement years. That’s it. Now you simply click the calculate button.
The results of your inputs pull up immediately. It will tell 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 track, the retirement calculator will even show you the 4 key areas that you can change to be sure you reach your goals. Based on the 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 achieve your retirement goals.
It’s really much fun to do. For most people it’s a real eye-opener. Discovering where you are right now and being honest about your current situation is half the battle.
Note: We work with many high net worth investors who love using our strategies to grow their net worth and protect themselves from soaring tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their accounts private and off the grid. However, quite a few of our clients consider themselves to be pretty average.
If you are not on track to achieve 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 do.

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 cost of their life? Most people have no idea, 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 expenditure 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 amazing country of ours. It truly is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our plan works.
You contribute post taxed dollars to our plan. Yes, unlike your IRA and 401(k) (which are called qualified plans) where you put in pre-taxed dollars, our plan requires you to pay the tax on the funds before you contribute it. On the surface this may not appear as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please keep an open mind. We will clearly show you how our program will 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 an illness, an unexpected expense, an unexpected opportunity or investment, college savings or anything at all, you can simply take your funds out at any time. We will show you how you will be able to access your money at any time 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 big thing. At the time this is being written, Bernie Sanders is running for President. He is wanting 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 blow you away.) 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 totally protect yourself from needing 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 Tupelo
The next action we take in our retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the market. Next to taxes, market losses are the next big event that can end your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you hoped to. Lots of 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 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 working for, 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 patented plan you are completely 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 better you could sleep at night knowing that you were completely guaranteed not to lose a dime in stock 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 all of your previous gains are locked in and protected from losses. Our plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Tupelo
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 two different returns, on the same funds, at the same time. Yes, we know the first time 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 mostly been used by wealthy families, politicians and giant corporations. Believe me, they certainly 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 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 account that has a 0% floor and a 17% cap. So if the value of the indexes’ tracked goes up twenty percent 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 twenty percent, you maintain your 0% floor and experience 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 in the planet 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 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 0% to seventeen percent each year. Then you decide to borrow 80k 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 $100,000 account value.
Additionally you earn whatever return you get on your 80k that you put into your real estate investment. 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 unique 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 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.
