• "If, in your thinking, you rely entirely on others, often through purchase of professional advice, whenever outside a small territory of your own, you will suffer much calamity."

    “To a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail!”

    Mark Twain

    Financial Calculator

    Learn to use the financial calculator the way a maestro uses a baton and it may be the only tool you will ever need!

    The old school says, “A good carpenter doesn’t choose his tools”.  Learning a few tools really well by developing skill in a narrowly defined area often delivers the highest return.

    The new school says if a little of something is good, then more is even better!  A fully loaded toolbox will make sure you have tools for many different jobs.  With a little understanding and lots to choose from, it could be similar to going into a gunfight with a butter knife – someone could get hurt!

    You work hard for your money, play it safe – measure twice and cut once.  If you want to be sure, feel free to reach out to myTalisman™ for a well seasoned and complimentary second opinion.
