"It's better to hang out with people better than you. Pick out associates whose behavior is better than yours and you'll drift in that direction." Warren Buffett, the Oracle of Omaha, has said some of the wisest things anyone has, and the quote above is just one of them. A group of Fisher students applied this first-hand when we had the enviable opportunity to hang out with Warren Buffett himself!
I recently headed to Omaha, Nebraska as part of the annual Warren Buffett trip. Every year the Fisher College MBA program gets to send a couple dozen students to meet with the Oracle of Omaha, and I was randomly selected to go on the trip. I knew the trip was going to be amazing, but Mr. Buffett exceeded all my expectations. We flew out Thursday afternoon and spent the night in Omaha. In usual Thursday night fashion, we went out for a couple of hours, which was great since I got to meet some of the first years and working professionals that I hadn’t spent much time with yet.
