Worth over $75Billion and considered to be one of the world’s most successful investors, Warren Buffet was asked what his advice is for being successful in 2017.

His answer was to say that Xmas cards should not just be for Xmas but should be for the whole year.

You see, Buffet writes a letter or a handwritten note most days which typically includes a line of gratitude, or a few words of praise.

Buffet says that whether its business or pleasure, ultimately everything is personal.

And it’s the businesses and people who endear themselves to others, that are the ones which will endure.

Mike Flint – Buffet’s personal airline pilot – says that Buffet loves deep conversations and is more interested in hearing about your childhood, what makes you mad, what makes you laugh and what makes you cry than talking all things investment.

As Buffet says, "Trust grows not from reason, but from the heart. How people feel has more binding power than how they think. Besides, life is so much fun when you’re trusted and worthy of trust."

So don’t just communicate, connect.



  • It’s so cold outside I saw a politician with his hands in his own pockets.
  • I’m seriously contemplating marrying me ex-wife. I hope she won’t realize that I’m just after my own money.
  • I grew up in a rough part to town.
    The local yobs used to cover me in chocolate and cream then put a cherry on my head.
    Life was tough in the gateau.

And finally, thank you so much for letting me into your Inbox this year.

I’m truly humbled and grateful that my musings are worthy of your attention.

See you on 7th Jan.

Have a very,


Live big & love deep.
