The Big Ticks: Top Stories For Professional Advisers This Week

July 2, 2016

By Tony Vidler CFP  CLU  ChFC

Information, ideas, tips…the articles for professional advisers which I spotted this week that generate fresh thinking or a deeper understanding of issues are provided here as a quick readers digest for professionals who are looking ahead.


These are the highlights from the week that you should stop and read, as they are the best I’ve seen recently.


There is so much good information for professional services made available each week, much of which I share, that it is very easy to forget to pause and reflect.  Each week I select the best handful and give them Tony’s BIG Ticks as being the ones that made me pause and reflect, or think further.  They are sometimes thought-provoking, perhaps insightful, maybe a great sales or marketing idea or sometimes just incredibly topical.
