    How To Jumpstart Your Career Like Warren Buffett and Steven Spielberg

    Steven Spielberg and Warren Buffett are inarguably at the top of their respective fields. As a film director, Spielberg redefined the genre and pioneered the New Hollywood era of film.

The career paths of these men could not be more different, but their beginnings are surprisingly similar. Spielberg and Buffett showed great tenacity and creativity at the beginnings of their careers, and it's what set them on the right career path to become the titans they are today. If you want to know how to jumpstart your career, the stories of these two men provide ample inspiration.
