Weatherford Financial Planning & Retirement Planning – Financial Advisor 405-418-6266
Financial Advisor Weatherford
Are you looking for a financial advisor to help with your financial planning and retirement planning? If so, you’ve come to the right place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are experienced financial advisors. First of all, congrats on being wise enough to look for professional help in this critically important area of your life.
As you are aware, we only get this one chance at life and one chance to get this right. Life goes by far too fast. If we attempt to go it alone and come in short of where we need to be, it’s often challenging to make up for lost ground. The longer you hold off on this, the more challenging it will be to make up lost ground and achieve your retirement goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, just 52% of Americans seek out the help of a financial advisor or financial planner. The survey also found that individuals who do look for professional help have more successful financial returns than those who do not. It’s really smart to find help from a good financial advisor.
Many people start with basic questions like: (1) How much money do I need to be able to retire? (2) What’s the real difference between an IRA vs 401k? (3) How much will I need to retire? (4) What about alternative investments? (5) 401k vs ROTH IRA, which is better? The list of questions goes on and on. Finance and investing can be very complex and mind blowing sometimes.
We pride ourselves on providing simple, proven and very effective financial strategies to help clients reach your financial and retirement goals. After all, we know if a solution it too complicated to understand, it will be too complicated to put in place and watch and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we like to keep things simple.
Financial Planning Weatherford
Our first step 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? Most people have no idea at all. As we know for sure, before you can get to where you wish to go, you first need to determine 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 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.
Lots of our clients use them very often running various “what it” ideas to see how minor shifts in their financial planning can impact their end results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you start with could not be any easier to use. You simply plug in your age, the age you desire 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 getting on your retirement and the rate of return that you wish you will achieve during your retirement years. It’s that simple. Next you simply click the calculate button.
The results of your numbers pull up immediately. It will tell 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 calculator will even show you the 4 key areas that you can change to insure you reach your goals. Based on your findings you can go back and plug in some different combinations of amounts and keep going back and forth and see if you can reasonably make adjustments to reach your financial goals.
It’s really very fun to do. For most people it’s a real eye-opener. Discovering where you are now and being honest about your current finances is half the battle.
Note: We work with quite a few high net worth clients who love using our strategies to grow their funds and protect themselves from soaring tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their investments private and off the Government radar. 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 last.
Weatherford Financial Planners
As financial planners, most often 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 biggest financial cost of their life? 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 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 successful way to protect yourself and save on taxes that is legally allowed in this fantastic country of ours. It really is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our plan works.
You put in post taxed dollars to the plan. Yes, unlike your 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 money before you contribute it. 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 beat the pants off of 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 emergency, an unexpected expense, an unexpected opportunity or investment, college savings or anything under the sun, you can simply take your money out at any time. We will show you exactly how you will be able to get your funds at any time you wish 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 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. Yikes! 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 these days, most experts believe that the future tax rates will have no option but to rise significantly.
By setting up a Barefoot Retirement Plan you can 100% protect yourself from having to pay any taxes on the funds you pull out. This one benefit alone can make or break most people’s retirement dreams.
Retirement Planning Weatherford
The next task we take in successful retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the market. Second to taxes, market losses are the next big issue that can destroy your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you wanted to. Lots of investors lost upwards of 50% of their accounts 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 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 retire. When the crash occurred and they lost about half of everything they had spent a lifetime building up, 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 dime 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 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 not.
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 your previous gains are locked in and protected from losses. Our unique plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Weatherford
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 our program gives you the option, if you wish 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 this 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 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 person and not just the wealthy.
Here is a high level look at how the leveraging option could work. Many clients choose the blended index plan 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 money, 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 suffer 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 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 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 100k 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 seventeen percent on the entire 100k 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 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 powerful 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 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 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.
