Financial Advisor Wetumka
Are you seeking a financial advisor to help with your financial planning and retirement planning? If that’s right, you’ve found the most perfect place. We are Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros and we are experienced financial advisors. First off, congrats on being smart enough to search for professional help in this super important area of your life.
As you are aware, we only get this one chance in life and one chance to do this right. Life goes by much 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 make up lost ground and achieve your financial goals. According to a recent Forbes survey, only 52% of people seek out the help of a financial advisor or financial planner. Forbes also revealed that investors who do ask for professional help have more profitable financial gains than investors who do not. It’s smart to get help from a knowledgeable financial advisor.
Lots of 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 do I need to save for retirement? (4) What about alternative investments? (5) 401k 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 specialize in 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 complex to understand, it will be too challenging to set up and review and thus will not be acted upon in the first place. That’s why we know to keep things simple.

Our first goal 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 reach your financial and retirement goals? Many people have no idea in the world. As we understand, before you can get to where you wish to go, you first need to discover where you are right now.
In our alignment 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 user friendly to use, yet very effective. Our simple retirement calculators are completely 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.
Many of our clients use these frequently running various “what it” scenarios to see how small changes in their financial planning can impact their net results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you begin 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 contribute 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 think you will achieve during your retirement years. It’s that simple. Then you simply click the calculate button.
The results of your numbers 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 away you are in funds, years and percentages. If you’re not on track, it will even show you the 4 critical areas that you can make changes to to help you obtain your goals. Based on your 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 changes to achieve your goals.
It’s really much fun to do. For most people it’s a real shocker. Knowing where you are right now and being honest about your current situation is half the battle.
Note: We work with quite a few high net worth clients who love using our plans to grow their funds and protect themselves from soaring tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their accounts 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 obtain 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 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.

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 amount most Americans spend on taxes is the single biggest financial expense of their life time? Many 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 expenditure
That’s why it is so important for us to focus on this major cost and reduce your taxes as much as you can. We believe that our top financial program 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 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 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 show you how our program will out perform these other plans, without a doubt!
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 savings 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 get your funds at any time you wish with no 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 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. Yikes! 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 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 dreams.

The next action we take in successful retirement planning is to get you protected from market losses. Second to taxes, market losses are the next big issue that can end your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you needed to. Many investors lost upwards of 50% of their money 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 triggered and they lost just about half of everything they had spent a lifetime creating, 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 actually is possible.
With our one-of-a-kind plan you are completely guaranteed not to lose a single penny due to market downturns, losses or crashes. I cannot even begin to express to you how much peace of mind this makes possible to our clients. Imagine how much deeper you could sleep at night knowing that you were totally guaranteed not to lose a dime in market declines. This one feature of our 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, 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 unique plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Wetumka
We also assist our clients with wealth management to insure they reach their investing and financial goals. One of the strong benefits of our unique and patented flagship program 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 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 guarantee you this is squeaky clean and as legal as legal gets.
Until recently plans like ours have mainly been used by wealthy families, politicians and giant corporations. Believe me, they do know the best ways to protect their money 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 rich.
Here is a high level look at how the leveraging option could work. Many clients choose the blended index account that has a 0% floor and a seventeen percent cap. So if the value of the indexes’ tracked goes up twenty percent 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 20%, you maintain your 0% floor and experience 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 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 100k earns between zero percent to 17% 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 zero percent 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 deal. So you are actually earning two 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 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 could 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 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.
