Three things I Learned from Warren Buffett


Here’s a latest post by Bill Gates, yes the former founder of Microsoft and

Co-chair of the  Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

He shares 3 things he learned from Warren Buffett and I think it applies to

I.M business as well.

His first point in investing is to find an economic moat in business.

Similarly, in an online business, what is the economic moat you

can build to  differentiate you from the others.

ForMyFirstMagicButton, our moat is to  provide quality content that

can help solopreneurs and those just getting started online

to build their own business.

We will have a membership site started and that is in the pipeline

To succeed, you need to be ProActive


To Succeed in Online Marketing or any other area, you’ve got to be Proactive.


In another 48 hours, I will be leaving Hong Kong and going back home to Singapore.

Well, Hong Kong is a truly inspiring city for me. The people are hard working, they work long and hard and of course very tourist friendly as most shops open till late and some are open for 24 hours.

There was a particular incident that stuck me and I felt I needed to share with you here.

“To succeed, you’ve got to be proactive!”

I was enjoying my dinner at Stanley one weekday evening. There weren’t many people there that night due to the races.Yes, Wednesday is Race day in Hong Kong and most people would be at the races.

This old man was an employees of one of the restaurants, he is one of the most proactive person when it comes to soliciting for business for his restaurant.

Here’s a picture of him working, you see him promoting his business in a very pro active manner. He approaches almost everyone who passes him and tries to get them into his restaurant.

This is the kind of action, you need to take if you ever want to succeed in your online business.

You need to think of ways to reach out to your customers, to reach out to them and let the, know of the solutions you have that can help them. Let your content be their solutions.

Its time to succeed online instead of fiddling around. Be proactive.

We were there for a couple of hours, the dinner was great and great value as it comes with wine, beer or other beverage all for only US$22 with a salad, main course and wine.So, the next time you are in Stanley, Hong Kong, be sure to check out this place.

Because he was so upbeat and proactive, we were secretly ‘rooting’ for him and happy each time, he filled a table.
