Over the last three weeks, I have been at events with Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger and Bill Gates. In case you are keeping score, that’s a combined $309 billion net worth between the four of them. Jeff, Bill and Warren are ranked 1, 2 and 3 on the list of the richest people in the world, according to Forbes magazine.
To say I was honored and blessed to be in the room with Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffet, Charlie Munger and Bill Gates is an understatement.
Also, to think I just happened to stroll into these rooms is an understatement. I worked my ass off to afford tickets to the events and to be a shareholder in the companies where they reside.
Yes, I’m a shareholder in Berkshire Hathaway, Amazon and Microsoft. Most people don’t know this about me, but I’ve been investing in stocks for over 15 years. My portfolio is quite impressive and I’ve never taken a year over year loss. I’m damn good at buying stocks; I just don’t teach how to do it. I’m not one of “those guys.”
I attended a meeting with Jeff Bezos three weeks ago at SMU in Dallas, Texas. I took my 6-year-old old son Jax to meet the world’s richest man. It was amazing to hear how Bezos thinks about doing business. His “2 pizza rule” really opened my mind on how to stay small when you have over 600,000 employees worldwide.
The following weekend, I flew on a private jet with five friends/clients to Omaha, Nebraska to the annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholder meeting. I was in a stadium with 20,000+ other people who own the stock. They are the Super Bowl of the financial world. Warren and Charlie did a 6-hour Q&A session with the press and shareholders. Bill Gates was there as well and he was elected to be a board member of Berkshire.
Being around all that wealth really changed my perspective. In this video, you’ll hear some of my biggest takeaways as I walk the streets of Omaha and share my thoughts. After you watch the video, you’ll want to make more sales, and the key to making more sales is getting more leads.
