They’re the world’s most influential power couple…(show picture of Jay Z and Beyonce). Ok second most.
Bill and Melinda Gates have given away nearly $40 billion dollars to charity…and quite literally changed the world. On CBS Sunday Morning, Bill and Melinda gave away some of their secrets behind that relationship. Here are a few takeaways.
One: partnership. Melinda says, “It’s absolutely a partnership of equals. It’s important to both of us that the world understands that we are running this place together. This is our joint values being played out in the world.”
Two. Don’t plan, just focus on what’s important. Melinda said, marrying Bill “wasn’t part of my life plan! I came out and interviewed with Microsoft. And I just thought, ‘Oh my gosh. I have to work at this company. They are changing the world.’”
Finally, Three. Say yes to first dates even if they’re asked in a parking lot. Bill told CBS “I met her at a New York City sales meeting. And then it was only a week or so after that, that I went up to her in the parking lot and asked if she wanted to go out.”
Very classy Bill…very classy.
