Start investing young

Warren’s interest in money and markets started at an early age. 

At the young age of 11, Buffett purchased three shares of Cities Service at $38 a share for himself and his older sister. The shares fell as low as $27 and then bounced to $40 where he sold it. Eventually those shares were worth as much as $200. The experience taught him one of the basic lessons of investing: patience is a virtue.
