“When I Was 25″ by Warren Buffett

Recs

March 26, 2012 – Comments (5) | RELATED TICKERS: BRK-A , BRK-B

Warren Buffett writes an article of his early years after getting out of college and working for his hero Benjamin Graham. He is later offered a job as a partner but Warren declines and decides to go back to Omaha. In Omaha he says he had no particular plans not even a plan to get a job and that by coincidence he starts an investment fund when some friends called for tips.

A good article and it includes some pictures of young Warren, his father and Benjamin Graham.

 Enjoy
