For one day only, financial guru Warren Buffett
will be taking on a new role, jewelry salesperson. The Berkshire Hathaway will be behind the counter at Borsheims in Omaha, Nebraska
during Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholders' Weekend. You can buy your jewelry directly from Mr. Buffett on Sunday afternoon, May 1 at the Borhsheims store
. Borsheims is a Berkshire Hathaway company. In a release, Borsheims President & CEO Susan Jacques said, "We are thrilled and flattered that Warren wants to come and sell at our store. I'm sure he'll be a record-setting salesman within a few minutes of being on the sales floor!" Given the fact that his charity lunches go for millions, I'm guessing there will be a line out the door.
As the video below explains, the Buffett family in Omaha goes back for generations explaining why, although he has the means to live anywhere in the world, Warren Buffett has always chosen to remain close to home. Buffett's success as one of the world's top financial minds has turned the annual shareholder's weekend for Berkshire Hathaway into a well-attended event bringing the world to Omaha each year. It has become the Super Bowl of shareholder meetings with major media and thousands of shareholders in attendance.
