Interesting Aspects of Life by Warren Buffet

There was a one hour interview on CNBC with Warren Buffet,
the secondrichest man who has donated $31 billion to charity.
Here are some very interesting aspects of his life:

1. He bought his first share at age 11 and he now regrets that he
started too late!

2. He bought a small farm at age 14 with savings from delivering newspapers.

3. He still lives in the same small 3-bedroom house in mid-town Omaha ,
that he bought after he got married 50 years ago. He says that he has
everything he needs in that house. His house does not have a wall or a fence.

4. He drives his own car everywhere and does not have a driver or
security people around him.

5. He never travels by private jet, although he owns the world’s largest
private jet company.

6. His company, Berkshire Hathaway, owns 63 companies.
He writes only one letter each year to the CEOs of these companies,
giving them goals for the year. He never holds meetings or calls them
on a regular basis. He has given his CEO’s only two rules.
Rule number 1: do not lose any of your share holder’s money.
Rule number 2: Do not forget rule number 1.

7. He does not socialize with the high society crowd. His past time
after he gets home is to make himself some pop corn and watch Television.

8. Bill Gates, the world’s richest man met him for the first time only 5 years ago.
Bill Gates did not think he had anything in common with Warren Buffet. So he
had scheduled his meeting only for half hour. But when Gates met him, the
meeting lasted for ten hours and Bill Gates became a devotee of Warren Buffet.

9. Warren Buffet does not carry a cell phone, nor has a computer on

His advice to young people: “Stay away from credit cards and invest in yourself and Remember:

A. Money doesn’t create man but it is the man who created money.

B. Live your life as simple as you are.

C. Don’t do what others say, just listen them, but do what you feel good.

D. Don’t go on brand name; just wear those things in which u feel comfortable.

E. Don’t waste your money on unnecessary things; just spend on them who really in need rather.

F. After all it’s your life then why give chance to others to rule our life.

    Are all of these really true? If so, then Warren Buffett is my hero. Here’s an interesting article that you can connect to #8: http://www.newsvisual.com/newsvisual/2007/09/corporate-ties-.html

    Gates is probably a devotee because Buffett offered his charity foundation $30 billion, and it looks like some of their company ties is what led to that decision
