Help People, Work Your Mind & Warm Your Heart

We often have clients ask us to share what we’re hearing from others in terms of how they’re reaching out, staying active and helping others.  The ways in which our clients, their friends, families, neighbors and loved ones give back is seemingly endless, but when an opportunity comes up that aligns with our mission of improving people’s lives through better understanding of their personal finances, we can’t help but pass it along. For the last several years, one client in particular has found a unique way of giving back through the AARP Foundation.  One… [read more]

Happy New Year!

“Going down this checklist, it’s evident that the factors that have been most positive over the past couple of years are diminishing or highly uncertain. And the rest, although they may be beneficial in the very short run, don’t hold much promise for next year as a whole.” “As you go into (the year), walk softly and carry a big cash balance.” Wait, a TAAG blog about the future of the market? Not exactly. The primary purpose of this e-mail is to wish our clients and other readers a very safe and Happy New Year… [read more]

We wanted the new logo to have a clean, modern take on our initials – TAAG. We’ve always referred to ourselves internally as TAAG and discovered that many clients refer to us that way as well.

In my exit interview, my well-intentioned boss told me I was crazy to try to start my own business as a 28 year-old female in a conservative town.  He offered to hold my job for me until I came [read more]
