The ground breaking event of Warren Buffet on Levo League’s office hours was phenomenal.
Everyone twitted up a storm, including myself, as we tried to catch the words of wisdom passed down by this Oracle.
I loved the concept of #officehours at Levo League. These valuable hours provided everyone who signed up as part of the network of Gen Y young professionals, the chance to ask for mentor advice. Despite the time differences in London vs. New York City or Omaha (in this instance at Warren’s home), I was able to get out of the Spring sunshine and tucked myself in front of the laptop to tune in. So far, I have had the chance to ask questions to the likes of Sheryl Sandberg, and Sally Krawcheck, despite their busy schedules. It made me feel empowered to know that I have such a strong network of individuals to request advice, overcome challenges and elevate my career.
Today, from Warren, some key quotes I think deserved to be documented amongst many others are the following:
“Women have every potential that men do.”
“I love painting my canvas, you are lucky in life to find your passion.”
I love this one – “You want to have the right heroes.”
If you would like to elevate your career and be inspired by fellow amazing GenYers and mentors, read about Levo League here and join. If anyone is in London and would like to attend events, please drop me a tweet @lauriewang2
