So you want to be the next Warren Buffet? How's your writing?

I read this 6 pages long article thanks to a reader (temperament) who told me about it when I wrote my last post on Talent. I think it's an excellent read and while it answers a few questions of my own, it also made me have more questions. Especially the part when it is all set in stone by the time you turn 12.

    1. I'm not advocating Buffet although he does impress me on a few counts. Agreed that in investing it could be different strokes for different folks as long as the ultimate goal is reached aka making $$$

    A very good one and massive learning from it.
