Startup & Life Tips From Warren Buffet

Startup & Life Tips From Warren Buffet | Executive Coaching & Mentoring | Scoop.it

There are reasons other than sheer brillance Warren Buffet has way more money than most. He lives by a strict code and these tips share some of that code. Great #startup and life tips. 

My favorites are learning to spend only AFTER saving (hard lesson that one) and the tip about honesty being expensive so don't expect it from "cheap people". I suspect Warren means "cheap" in much more than the monetary sense.  


Via Martin (Marty) Smith
Jeremy Barton's insight:

Simple and obvious. I guess that is why Warren Buffet has got what he has got.

If you own jewelry and have no use for it, you can donate to charity and enjoy a fair market tax deduction. Jewelry donations range from broken gold necklaces and jewelry missing gemstones to very rare and hard to come by fine or estate jewelry. You will receive the absolute maximum tax deduction for your generous jewelry donation. http://www.collectibleswithcauses.org/

How to Kill Dead Space and Achieve More in Business

Daniel Watson's curator insight, April 27, 11:36 PM

 

We all know that work expands to fill the time available in which to complete it. The difference between the actual time physically taken to complete a task, and the lapsed time between beginning and completing the task, is what is known as dead space. If you can kill the dead space, you will achieve far more in your business life, and this article highlights three steps to take to become personally more productive.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, April 28, 11:38 PM
Dead space is a silent but deadly killer of initiative and success in business and life. Umberto Eco the expert on semiotics referred to Dead Space when he used the word Interstices. The idea is to fill up the empty spaces in our lives by doing something constructive. Take for example the time it takes for your friend to ascend to your flat using the elevator while you wait for him at the top. That is an interstice that you can fill up by writing something. If we were to remove the empty space from the whole universe, then theortically at least, the whole universe can be compressed to the size of an orange!

As a small business owner you are probably very good at implementing a range of tactics in your quest to acquire more customers or clients.

Antonio Ormachea's curator insight, April 1, 12:32 PM

 

As a business owner you will always have a lot on your plate, and if you are like most business owners, you will pride yourself on your ability to multitask in order to get everything done. Research has long shown that multitasking is actually a very inefficient way in which to operate, yet business owners tend to take little notice of such research findings. Perhaps, if you were conscious of what multitasking is doing to your brain, you might review your modus operandi, and focus on monotasking instead. This article should be a wake up call for every business owner who sees multitasking as a virtue.

11 tactiques à utiliser, dans l'ordre ou le désordre... avec évidemment une stratégie dûment réfléchie en amont !!!

Brandon Steven Wichita's curator insight, November 24, 2015 11:56 PM


Not every small business owner is blessed with an abundance of knowledge in respect to what does and does not work in the context of marketing the products or services of a small business. It is also true that whilst an abundance of advice is readily available to help small business owners, not all of it is readily accessible in one spot, nor is it always valid. Rarely does a good single collection of small business marketing strategies such as the one in this article surface for open free access. Recommended reading for any business owner needing to improve their marketing outcomes.
