Famed investor Warren Buffett auctions off a lunch with himself for charity every year; most recently the winning bidder paid just over $3 million. But it’s really more than just a lunch.

In this week’s digest, Spier shares some of Buffett’s wisdom, advice that has helped him manage money for himself and his clients, and just might help you as well. Then, check out other lessons on the importance of being disciplined, as an investor and a person, with money and life decisions you make.
