Wapanucka Financial Planning & Retirement Planning – Financial Advisor 405-418-6266
Financial Advisor Wapanucka
Are you searching for a financial advisor to assist with your financial planning and retirement planning? If so, you’ve arrived at the best place. 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 very important area of your life.
As you know, we only get this one chance in life and one chance to make this right. Life goes by way too fast. If we try and go it alone and come in short of where we need to be, it’s often challenging to make up for lost results. The longer you put this off, the more challenging it will be to produce better returns and achieve your retirement goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, only 52% of investors seek out the help of a financial advisor or financial planner. Forbes also found that people who do seek professional help have more successful financial returns than pre-retirees who do not. It’s good 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) What’s the real difference between an Individual Retirement Account and an 401k? (3) How much should I save for retirement? (4) What’s the story on alternative investments? (5) SEP IRA vs ROTH IRA, which is better? 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 people reach your financial and retirement goals. After all, we realize if a solution it too complicated to grasp, it will be too difficult to use and review and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we know to keep things simple.

Our first step in financial planning and helping you reach your financial goals is to first get a benchmark of where you are today financially. Are you on track to achieve your financial and retirement goals? Most people have no idea at all. As we understand, 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 simple, 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 super 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.
Lots of our clients use them all the time running various “what it” scenarios to see how minor edits 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 key 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 getting on your accounts and the rate of return that you hope you will achieve during your retirement years. That’s it. Now you just click the calculate button.
The results of your inputs pull up instantly. It will tell you if you are on track to achieve 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 goal, the calculator will even show you the four main areas that you can change to help you obtain your goals. Based on those findings you can go back and enter in some different combinations of amounts and keep going back and forth and find out if you can reasonably make adjustments to obtain your goals.
It’s really much fun to do. For most people it’s a real shocker. Discovering 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 clients who love using our strategies to grow their funds and protect themselves from rising tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their investments private and off the grid. However, most of our clients consider themselves to be mostly average.
If you are not on track to reach 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 need to 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 largest financial cost of their life time? 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 any other expense.
That’s why it is so important for us to focus on this major cost and reduce your taxes as much as possible. We believe that our main financial plan 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 fantastic country of ours. It really is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how it works.
You put in after taxed dollars to The Barefoot Retirement Plan. Yes, unlike an IRA and 401(k) (which are called qualified plans) where you invest 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 seem as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please trust us. We will clearly demonstrate how our program will out perform 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, college 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 access your money at any time with no 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 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. Wow! Plus last week the US debt just surpassed the 19 Trillion mark. (If you look at our National Debt Clock, it will amaze 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 significantly.
By setting up a Barefoot Retirement Plan you can completely protect yourself from needing to pay any taxes on the funds you pull out. This one benefit alone can make or break most people’s retirement plan.
Retirement Planning Wapanucka
The next action 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 thing that can end your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you hoped to. Many investors lost upwards of 50% of their money 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 next 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 about 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 market losses and crashes, and yes, it truly is possible.
With our one-of-a-kind plan you are totally guaranteed not to lose a single dime 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 guaranteed not to lose a cent 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 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 unique plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Wapanucka
We also assist our clients with wealth management to insure they reach their investment and financial goals. One of the strong benefits of our unique and patented flagship plan that we offer is that it gives you the option, if you want to use it, to leverage your returns and actually earn two different returns, on the exact same money, at the same time. Yes, we know the first time you hear this, it sounds too good to be true and may even question if it is legal. We promise you it is squeaky clean and as legal as legal gets.
Until recently plans like ours have primarily been used by wealthy families, politicians and mega corporations. Believe me, they 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 zero percent floor and a seventeen percent cap. So if the value of the indexes’ tracked goes up twenty percent in a given year, you earn seventeen percent 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 those funds into ANYTHING in the planet that you wish. You don’t have to ask 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 $100,000 in your Barefoot Retirement account. That $100,000 earns between zero percent to 17% each year. Then you decide to borrow 80k from the account and put it into a profitable 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 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 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 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.
