Thanks to the well-educated mind of Warren Buffett, the realm of the financial and stock exchange world would never be the same. Born Warren Edward Buffett in Omaha, Nebraska on August 30th, 1930; seemingly, he was making calculations and financial transactions from birth. Before graduating from Woodrow Wilson High School, at age13, he was already running his first small business; and before that he understood the value of the time and effort it took to make a buck while selling various items door to door. He made his first financial investment at age 11, even then he was paying attention and learning lessons that would stick with him throughout his life. Warren Buffett attended the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, where he studied for two years, later transferring to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln graduating from there with a Bachelor of Science in business administration. When he caught wind that his favorite financial author, Benjamin Graham, was a teacher at the Columbia Business School, he enrolled there, earning his Master of science in economics. Warren Buffett finished out his education in fine fashion by also attending the New York Institute of Finance. What's more important than his impeccable ability to deal well with finances, is his utmost humility and down to earth personality. He is known for being a shrewd, but decent, business man. Patient, determined, and he has a desire to help others know the ins and ours of finance. A quote from Warren Buffett, "Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago."
