Warren Buffett has once again offered up a lunch with him in a charity auction to benefit The Glide Foundation. The bidding, which ends later on tonight, is currently near $1.6 million. This bid will surely increase, but it remains shy of the record setting bid of $3,456,789 in 2012.
According to the article, “Buffett has said the lunches generally last at least three hours and cover a variety of topics. The only topic off-limits is what Buffett plans to invest in next.” People seem eager to do this considering this annual auction lot has raised nearly $18 million over the last 15 years.
I am curious who domain investors would want to have lunch with if they could choose anyone in the business of domain investing. I am not going to run a poll with pre-selected options, so it would be great for you to share the person with whom you would want to have a 3 hour lunch meeting. Perhaps this is something that could be arranged in the future.
It would be difficult for me to choose one person right now. There are quite a few people who are very successful who haven’t necessarily shared their secrets publicly and don’t hit the conference speaking circuit. I would probably want to choose someone who doesn’t attend many conferences and isn’t regularly available for a phone call or meeting. On the other hand, there are quite a few people in the business who have successfully built industry leading companies and are often making news. I will give it some thought and share my choice later on today.
