The team at White House Marketing sets a high standard for themselves. It is our ambition to provide the best, most effective experiential advertising campaigns to be found anywhere in Arizona and beyond. This is a lofty goal, and sometimes we look to the accomplishments of great people for some inspiration. One of the people we look to for encouragement is Warren Buffett.
Nicknamed the Oracle of Omaha for his seemingly magical ability to predict market trends, Mr Buffett has a net worth of over $60 billion. He is still the active leader of Berkshire Hathaway, the investment company he started almost 40 years ago, and when he finally retires his responsibilities will have to be split between two people. Yet, despite all his amazing wealth and success, Mr. Buffett still lives in the same house he bought back in the ‘50s for a little over $30,000.
Despite his wealth, Mr. Buffett is famous for openly admitting how tax laws unfairly favour the rich. He has often been in the news for his candid admissions on how little he pays in taxes (proportionally) compared to far less wealthy people than himself. President Obama is working toward the passage of the Buffet Rule, which would lay a minimum 30% income tax on anyone earning over $1 million a year. Mr. Buffett is also an incredibly generous philanthropist, recently pledging to donate the bulk of his wealth to charity after his death.
Warren Buffett is a billionaire with heart, and a worthy source of inspiration for White House Marketing.
