They also revealed that people who do obtain professional help have better financial gains than individuals who do not. It’s wise to seek help from a experienced financial advisor.
Lots of people start with basic questions like: (1) How much money do I need to be able to retire? (2) How much money do you need to retire? (3) How much do I need to save for retirement? (4) Do I need alternative investments? (5) Do I need life insurance? The list of questions goes on and on. Money and investing can be very complex and mind boggling sometimes.

Our first goal in financial planning and helping you succeed financially is to first get a baseline of where you are today financially. Are you on track to obtain your financial and retirement goals? Many people have no idea what-so-ever. As we know, 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 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 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 them all the time running various “what it” ideas to see how little changes 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 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 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 think you will achieve during your retirement years. It’s that simple. Then you just click the calculate button.
The results of your inputs pull up instantly. It will show you if you are on track to reach your retirement goals or not, and if not, it will tell 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 four main areas that you can change to insure you obtain your goals. Based on your findings you can go back and key in some different combinations of amounts and keep going back and forth and find out if you can reasonably make edits to obtain your goals.
It’s really quite 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 a lot of high net worth clients who love using our plans to grow their net worth and protect themselves from rising tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their investments 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 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 objective 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.
Union City Financial Planners
As financial planners, most 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 dollars most Americans spend on taxes is the single largest financial expense of their life? Many people have no idea, yet it is true for most of us. The average American spends more on taxes than they do on their mortgage payments, car payments and college for their kids, etc.
That’s why it is most important for us to focus on this major expenditure and reduce your taxes as much as you can. We believe that our best financial program 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 really is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how it works.
You contribute after taxed dollars to The Barefoot Retirement Plan. Yes, unlike an 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 money before you invest it. On the surface this may not look as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please keep an open mind. 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 the funds for any reason at all like an illness, 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 access your funds 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 powerful thing. At the time this is being written, Bernie Sanders is running for President. He is advocating 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 now, 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 completely 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 plan.

The next step we take in our retirement planning is to get you protected from market losses. Second to taxes, stock market losses are the next big thing that can ruin your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you needed to. Many investors lost upwards of 50% of their funds 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 retirement accounts.
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 working for, it was devastating. That is why the 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 truly is possible.
With our one-of-a-kind plan you are 100% 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 nicer you could sleep at night knowing that you were completely guaranteed not to lose a penny 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 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 plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Union City
We also assist our clients with wealth management to insure they reach their investment and financial goals. One of the powerful benefits of our unique and patented flagship program that we offer is that the plan gives you the option, if you choose to use it, to leverage your returns and actually earn two different returns, on the exact 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 huge corporations. Believe me, they certainly 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 clients choose our blended index plan that has a 0% 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 account, and your gains are always locked in. Or, if the value of the indexes goes down twenty percent, 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 under the sun 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 get to 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 $100,000 earns between 0% to 17% 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 0% 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 two 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 amazing 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.
