The Berkshire Hathaway chairperson shared how he took a public speaking course worth $ 100 that changed his life. He said, “Up until about the age of 20… just the thought of [public speaking] made me physically ill.

After graduating from Columbia Business School, Warren Buffett moved back to his hometown in Ohama where he saw an ad for a $100 public speaking course. At the time, he thought that spending the money in a course would make him accountable and also force him to get over his fear of public speaking. 

Warren Buffett went on to complete the course after which he sought out a teaching job at the University of Omaha to ensure his skills stayed sharp. 

He said, “I knew if I did not speak in front of people quickly, I would lapse back to where I’d started… I just kept doing it… The impact that the class had on my life was huge.”
