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 Christmas cards should not just be for Christmas but should be for the whole year.
Buffet writes a letter or a handwritten note almost everyday 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.
To relate it back to real estate – next time you are flipping areal estate deal, be more personal and see the difference it makes.
Panic sellers feel much more comfortable once you connect with them on a personal level.“Hand written notes add a lot more value, respect and trust” says Navtaj Chandhoke, founder of Professional real estate investors group (PREIG) Canada.
It is the businesses and people who endear themselves to others, that are the ones which will endure.
Mike Flint, Warren Buffet’s personal airline pilot says that Buffet loves to have deep conversations and is more interested in hearing about your childhood, what makes you mad, what makes you laugh and what makes you cry rather 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. Warren Buffet’s advice for 2017.
