Forget Warren Buffett and Bill Gates — Your Dream Business Mentor Is Already on Your Speed Dial.

If you’re like me, in my search to find the right coach, I dream about enlisting someone at the top of their field – the Stedman Graham or Steve Jobs of our profession. Conventional wisdom suggests that if you want to get good at something, you need to learn from the best. But does this always hold true?

This week I visited with management expert Roger Connors, perhaps most known as the best-selling co-author of The Oz Principle and several other workplace accountability books. Most recently he’s heading up a new organization called Zero to Ten and his newest book, Get a Coach | Be a Coach, will be available soon.

Warren Buffett phoned Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson with a stimulus idea when the financial crisis erupted. It may have saved the US economy

U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson (L) shares a laugh with financier Warren Buffett, Chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, at the Conference on U.S. Capital Market Competitiveness in Washington March 13, 2007.

  • Warren Buffett phoned Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson at the height of the 2008 financial crisis with a suggestion that likely saved the US economy from an even deeper recession.
  • The famed investor and Berkshire Hathaway CEO proposed the government plow capital directly into banks instead of only buying their distressed assets.
  • Paulson quickly gathered the bosses of the nation’s biggest banks and convinced them to accept billions of dollars in investment.
  • The Treasury demanded preferred stock paying chunky dividends, as well as stock warrants in return, emulating Buffett’s bailout of Goldman Sachs in September 2008.
  • Former President George W. Bush called it “probably the greatest financial bailout ever” and said it “probably saved a depression.”

Forget gold and Bitcoin. I’d follow Warren Buffett and buy cheap shares to get rich

The idea of buying cheap shares may seem less appealing after the stock market crash. It highlighted the volatility that can be present in the stock market over short time periods. It also showed that paper losses that can be incurred by any investor.

However, over the long run, purchasing undervalued companies could be a profitable move. It’s a strategy that’s been used to great effect by Warren Buffett. The billionaire investor has used market downturns to his advantage over many years.

As such, avoiding popular assets such as Bitcoin and gold to buy bargain stocks may be a sound move, despite heightened short-term risks.

The appeal of cheap shares

Cheap shares can sometimes be priced at low levels because they offer disappointing investment outlooks. For example, they may have high debt levels or a weak strategy that’s in need of major change.

However, in some cases, undervalued stocks can

Forget your State Pension worries! I’d listen to Warren Buffett and buy cheap UK shares

Buying cheap UK shares to build a retirement nest egg may not sound like a worthwhile move at the present time. Risks such as Brexit and coronavirus could cause a further stock market crash later this year.

However, by following billionaire investor Warren Buffett’s lead and purchasing undervalued shares, you could build a surprisingly large nest egg. In doing so, you may reduce your reliance on what continues to be a relatively inadequate State Pension.

Buying cheap UK shares after a stock market crash

Following the stock market crash, there are a wide range of cheap UK shares available to buy. Purchasing them now could mean you benefit from their long-term growth potential. Especially since an economic recovery is likely to take place in the coming years.

Buffett has used a similar approach for many decades. His aim has consistently been to buy high-quality businesses when they are suffering from

Want to make a million? I’d tune in to Warren Buffett and buy cheap UK shares right now

Over the last couple of weeks, many stocks became cheaper because of another pullback in the markets. And times like this are perfect for hunting out cheap UK shares.

In his long investing career, multi-billionaire investor Warren Buffett made much of his money buying shares in good-quality businesses, something that can be seen from his annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholder letters. But he always had an eye on valuation. So, when the markets were weak and uncertainty filled the air, he was often found making some of his most lucrative stock purchases.

What is a cheap UK share?

Volatility returned to the stock market last week after what has been an amazing rally since the spring lows.  And some have branded that long uptrend a ‘lockout’ rally. Why? because disbelieving investors often stand on the sidelines waiting for the ‘inevitable’ correction before buying. But the correction never seems to arrive. Shares
