Knowing where to tap

A story I thought you might find entertaining:

After years of faithful service, the ship engine failed… and no one could figure out what was wrong with it. The company brought in all their new, brightest, most educated engineers.


Finally, one of the executives broke down and brought in a man with 40 yrs. on the job. He wasn’t nuthin’ to look at. Matter of fact, he didn’t even have a formal eucation.

But, he looked over the engine, top to bottom. He nodded…a lot of “uh huh”s and “ahhhh, yes.”

After what seemed to be eternity…he reached into his bag of tools and pulled out a small, cheap, hammer. He tapped something very gently.

It was a miracle.

The engine started to groan and creak. Smoke sputtered….belts turned…pistons pumped…the thing lurched back to life.

About 7 days later, the company got a bill in the mail for $10,000.


The CEO clutched his heart…

“What in the…”

He immediately called up the man who had fixed his engine…

“I got your bill in the mail. It’s outrageous!” He yelled, “Why…you hardly did anything at all. Send us an itemized bill for everything.”

So…the man did as he was told.

He sent out the invoice. It read:

Tapping with a hammer: $5.

Knowing where to tap: $9,995.

Why do I mention this?

Well, it’s like this. There are lots of people you can do business with. You can save money in a bank. You can hire an investment advisor.

The products you find out there are, more or less, the same.

What’s different?

Knowing where to tap.
