On Thursday, Warren Buffett, who was named the most successful American entrepreneur of all time by Fortune magazine, announced that he would not be retiring from his role as chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway.
He is the only man in history to have run the company that he founded for over 100 years.
This is a big deal for Berkshire Hathaways shareholders and the wider economy, because Buffett is the most important person to run the world’s largest company.
He’s one of the most powerful people on the planet, and he’s been at this for over a century.
The man who built a wall is now a legend, and that’s what this story means.
The Wall St Journal has been publishing a series of columns that have explored the lives of some of the greatest people of the 20th century, from the founder of a chemical company to the creator of the first jet airliner.
But the most enduring legacy of Warren Buffet’s career is the man he is.
That’s because he was the man who made Wall Street what it is today.
He was the pioneer of a new business model that led to today’s high-frequency trading (HFT) business.
And his legacy is what drove his success in finance, investing, and other industries, as well.
The Warren Buffett story is not unique.
The greatest success stories of the past century are not defined by their achievements in the fields of technology, business, or finance.
It is the story of a single entrepreneur who went from the depths of poverty to a wealthy and powerful man in the 21st century.
What makes Buffett such an enduring icon of our era is that he is still doing something that has never been done before: making Wall Street the most innovative, fast-growing, and successful business in the world.
But, that’s not to say he’s not an innovator.
He knows how to build, and his teams work tirelessly to develop, the products and services of all kinds of businesses and industries.
He pioneered the new technology of online ordering, and it’s not a new technology.
But it is a way for people who can’t or won’t go to a store to find things for themselves.
And Buffett knows how it can create enormous value for customers and investors by providing them with high-quality goods and services at competitive prices.
This success story of the 21-century business world is a tale that’s been told by a lot of people.
Some of them have had the privilege of hearing it firsthand, and others have watched the stories unfold over the past 50 years.
The story of Warren is one of them.
He came from humble beginnings to become one of America’s richest men, a role that was largely created for him by his father, Charles, who had a knack for finding and acquiring people who could help him.
It was Charles who gave his son a name, and when Warren began to work at a local hardware store, he was called “Big Charles.”
He loved the work, and so he took it to the next level.
As he built his business, Warren would do things that were impossible to do when he was just starting out.
He would take a young clerk out for lunch, get him an espresso and a coffee, and then get him a cup of coffee and a glass of milk.
That meant the company was growing.
Warren would bring his friends and colleagues together, and the customers were coming in.
His business was going from strength to strength.
He became one of Wall Street’s most successful men and then a billionaire.
Today, he’s the most influential investor in the country, the second-richest person on earth, and a major player in the global economy.
Warren Buffett is a fascinating man, and you’ll find his story fascinating in this book.
It’s the story that has been told in every generation of investors.
