He is one of the most successful and very interesting multi-Billionaire this century has to offer. Decorated with triumph one after the other, he defied the expectations of how a normal rich man does and lives the opposite instead. He keeps himself humble, friendly, and simple.

1. He bought his first share at age 11 and he now regrets that he started too late!
2. He bought a small farm at age 14 with savings from delivering newspapers
3. He still lives in the same small 3-bedroom house in mid-town Omaha, that he bought after he got married 50 years ago. He says that he has everything he needs in that house. His house does not have a wall or a fence.
