Warren Buffett offered students $100,000 each

In a speech to students at Columbia Business School, the legendary investor offered the students money by saying, "Right now, I would pay a hundred-thousand dollars for 10 percent of the future earnings of any of you. So, if anyone wants to see me after this is over. If that's true, you're a million dollar asset right now, right? If ten percent of you is worth a hundred-thousand?

Then he explains the importance of good communication skills and talking effectively. And raises his offer to $150,000 per student by saying,  "If you improve your value 50 percent by having better communication skills, it's another 500-thousand dollars in terms of capital value. See me after the class and I'll pay you 150-thousand."
