The Wisdom of Warren Buffett, Part 5
Editor’s Note: Like most of you, we’ve got big ideas and aspirations for 2010; and yet, we don’t always have all the answers. So we’ve asked an oracle among Bros, Danny Brocean, to offer up one small nugget of Bro wisdom each day — a fortune cookie of insight, if you will. We hope you find them just as useful as we do.
This week we devote the entire sleeve of Fortune Cookies to the legendary investor, Warren Buffett. Warren loves to instruct and share his wisdom. Listen to virtually anything that comes out of his mouth, it’s folksy but so illuminating.
“It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.” Bros, hear me on this point, your reputation is everything. You ain’t fooling anyone. Can you be counted on?
