Lead by Doing ...Some More
I ran across this post by Rich Tehrani, from VoIP who wrote about a letter that Warren Buffet had sent to to an associate that had written a positive review of GEICO.

Of course Warren Buffet has had unparalleled success in investing. Much has been written about his success as an investor.

What I found interesting about this letter is that even America's second-richest man is out stumping for his investment.  The billionaire, who owns GEICOs parent, was willing to take the time to show his appreciation for a positive comment about his company.  That is leadership by doing. I guess you never know who is watching, reading or listening. Buffet knows.

And as if things aren’t going well enough for Mr. Buffet, a few days ago a federal judge ordered the Internal Revenue Service to pay him more than $23 million in taxes and interest.

Hi, Hal. Thanks for stopping by my site and giving me the opportunity to discover yours. Mr. Buffet would be too modest to say it, so I have to: When you're that good, they just can't hold you down.

I couldn't agree more. If an investor emulates even 10% of Buffet's qualities, then he/she will be a complete success.

You have, however, given me a new perspective on Buffet, that is, the value he places on being a leader. I think that aspect of his aproach to business ensures he's more successful than his peers.

Thanks for the post and the link.
