Warren Buffett is one of those amazing CEOs, who is down-to-earth, well-respected, and not always known to the masses. Indeed, he owns some of the most recognizable companies in North America like Dairy Queen and Fruit of the Loom, but many people, in fact, do not know this. They do not readily recall his personal name, nor the name of his company, Berkshire Hathaway. That is probably the most special thing about Buffett, what makes him endearing to the general public. He is a billionaire icon in the business world, but to people around him, he is an everyday person doing his job.
When Warren Buffett started his investing career, he would read 600, 750, or 1,000 pages a day. Even now, he still spends about 80% of his day in reading.
“Look, my job is essentially just corralling more and more and more facts and information, and occasionally seeing whether that leads to some action. We don’t read other people’s opinions, We want to get the facts, and then think.” he once said in an interview.
