Trader Paul Tudor Jones' Business Advice: Take a Journalism Class

Trader Paul Tudor Jones advices anyone who wants to succeed in business to take a journalism class, so they can improve memos and reports.

Jones says writing as a newspaper journalist does can help someone become a better problem-solver because it requires synthesizing a complex problem. Writing clearly to a peer can help an employee get to the heart of a problem and find a solution faster.

"Today, in business, time is money," said Jones. "When you've got hundreds of decisions to make every week—dozens every day—being able to see, think and understand what the issue is in the first couple of paragraphs is actually paramount to being efficient at what you do."
