Welcome to the first edition of “Tilly Tells All” — a short writing with straight-forward financial lessons.

Each lesson will only be about half a page and will take you half the time to learn something new and informative! Each post will have a direct link straight to our inbox — feel free to ask us any questions or provide any suggestions at any time.

Half as long also comes from a scene from my favorite movie, “A River Runs Through It” when Norman gets writing lessons from his father, a Presbyterian minister. His father “believed that the art of writing, lay in thrift.” Tilly earnestly agrees!

Here is a sneak peek of topics that Tilly will be discussing in the coming weeks:

  • What’s the Difference Between a Financial Advisor and Broker?
  • Why a “Personal Relationship” With Your Advisor is Overrated
  • Why People Rarely Buy Stocks Anymore — But Really Should Be
