Howard was a businessman, investor and served as the Republican United States representative for the States of Nebraska.

A simple idea of investing led Warren, a self-made billionaire

Warren is a self-made billionaire who made his fortune applying the philosophy of investing that he acquired from Benjamin Graham while studying at Columbia Business School and later working under him as a system analyst in his firm.  

He was a business enthusiast from an early age. 

He started his small business at the tender age of six by purchasing a six-pack of Coke for 25 cents and selling each can for a nickel, selling magazines from door to door, and later using the saved money in purchasing pinball machines that he placed in a local business.  

He made his first million from his partnership firm at 32, which he later sold. 

From 1962, he began buying the shares of Berkshire Hathaway until he got control of the company. 

He became a textile company Berkshire Hathaway's CEO

Since the company's growth was not satisfactory, he kept it as a holding company and started acquiring shares from high-quality companies, which resulted in high profits. 

Gradually, he began investing more and more.

A complicated relationship of his wife with her kids
