After years of following a rigorous reading program and training himself with critical thinking exercises, it’s an understatement to say that Warren Buffett has a major understanding of business. Profits are all the proof that Warren Buffett needs. This holding company – Berkshire Hathaway – has amassed a market capitalization of more than $300 billion. And personally, Buffett is currently worth upwards of $68 billion, and that’s not even counting all of the money he has given away philanthropically.
When Warren Buffett offers career advice, people should listen. In a series put out by Fortune in which CEOs offer advice, the Oracle of Omaha told the young women specifically how to advance their careers. But we feel that this line of thinking can apply to anyone. “You do the same thing a male will do,” said Buffett. “You follow your passions. You find something you love.”
Logically, by doing this, you’ll bring a great deal of energy to your work and excel more than anyone else. “The truth is, so few people really jump on their jobs, you really will stand out more than you think,” said Buffett. “You will get noticed if you really go for it.” Similarly, Warren Buffett’s advice is in parallel with the advice that comedian Steve Martin tells people looking to break into show business: “Be so good they can’t ignore you.”
