Before Fame

Buffett showed an interest in business and investing from an early age. He was inspired by a book he borrowed from the Omaha Public Library at the age of seven, One Thousand Ways to Make $ 1000. Much of Buffett’s early childhood years were driven by entrepreneurial ventures. In one of his first business ventures, Buffett was selling chewing gum, bottles of Coca-Cola, and weekly magazines door to door. He worked in his grandfather’s grocery store. While still in high school, his income included delivering newspapers, golf balls and stamps, and car detailing.
