Advice for Dancing Angels

Price of this car with these features…got it

Mutual funds that invest in precious metals…yep, right here

Copies of the most recent requirement for permitting this process…all three volumes are downloaded

Ask a question, find an answer.   When you want to find the name of the girl who played Zuzu in “It’s a Wonderful Life” (it was Karolyn Grimes), you have it in seconds.  Is it cement or concrete? (cement is actually an ingredient of concrete) “What am I supposed to do with all this Paella?” (It’s fine reheated).

We are swimming in a sea of information. We are bombarded by “news,” and if you like data, you can find data…lots of data!

But information and data are not advice.

Telling me that the regulation requires me to do something isn’t advice; it’s information.  Showing me the data or test results are meaningless, what does it mean to me?

Valuable providers of advice don’t regurgitate, they assimilate the information and consider you, your company, your goals, what you are trying to achieve and then advise you.

You might be able to find out how many angels can dance on the head of a pin – but the real question is, should they consider this endeavor in the first place?

Distinguish yourself – be an advisor.
