This Q&A with Warren Buffett is packed with gems like the following:
Money has no utility to me anymore as I am very happy with what I have but it has enormous utility to others in the world. More possessions to me would actually be a liability than an asset.
I don’t know Mr. Buffett but I am friends with a well-adjusted member of his demographic.
Last spring, I asked my wealthy friend if I could store a bike in the garage of his 22,000 sq ft house and he shared…
You know, I already have way too much stuff in there. So best if you keep it at your place.
For what it’s worth, my pal’s garage is less full that my own!
What’s going on here?
Another story… last year, I was helping a friend put together a financing for his business. The money was raised and I was invited to a lunch with the key investor. The investor is about twenty year older than me. He’s a fascinating guy with a son that’s in private equity. We had a lot in common, including enjoying health and wellness.
Over the course of the lunch, I learned he had a house locally, a cabin in the mountains, an ocean-going yacht and a winter home in the Southern Hemisphere. In 2005, I was trying to create his life situation for myself!
So what’s it like?
He said with a laugh…
We travel the world repairing things.
