Billionaire Warren Buffett: This is the ‘one easy way’ to increase your worth by ‘at least’ 50 percent
Legendary investor and billionaire Warren Buffett (currently worth more than $86 billion) has a tip for young people: (I might humbly add – everyone in industry, business or a non-profit).
Focus on learning how to write and speak clearly.
“The one easy way to become worth 50 percent more than you are now — at least — is to hone your communication skills — both written and verbal,” says Buffett recently.
“If you can’t communicate, it’s like winking at a girl in the dark — nothing happens.”
You can have all the brainpower in the world, but you have to be able to transmit it,” Buffett continues.
Learning how to speak clearly and succinctly in front of others is no longer considered a rare gift or talent, it is now considered to be imperative in any field or interview situation.
As Mr. Buffet says, “What use is the knowledge without the ability to transfer it to others in your organization or in a sales situation?”
Authority and stage presence can be learned – I have said it many times – it is a skill like guitar or golf – it is a learned skills and not luck.
Of course, you need to bring the information but, if you have a fear of public speaking, I encourage you to hire a speech writer or public speaking coach to move your skills from good to great.
A New Year is upon us – we need to learn new skills to keep us empowered and employable.
