Some people say money isn’t everything. We’re guessing that those people don’t have many things to worry about. Still, the question remains. If rich people are just like us, then why are they rich and we’re not? What did they do so differently to make it to where they are today? Let’s take a look at the top three riches people in the world and find out!
3. Warren Buffett
Warren Buffett is the third richest person in the world and is valued at over 72 billion dollars. To say the least, he is the working chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway and is an esteemed, self-made man. By age 15, he was actively making over $175 a month in stocks alone. The was back in the 1940s. By today’s standards, he was making almost $2,000 a month after inflation.
In his teens, Buffett and a friend bought a pinball machine and placed it in a barbershop in their town. Shortly after, he and his friend made enough to buy more pinball machines and place them in more shops. This quick thinking and industrious nature is what led him to open his own company and investment firm. Buffett is now worth billions and is a testament to the concept that anyone could be rich if they put their mind to it. Buffett also gives advice regularly and his go to advice is the following: “Big opportunities in life have to be seized. We don’t do very many things, but when we get the chance to do something tha’s right and big we’ve got to do it.”
