Put your money into index funds

You can start with index funds. In 2020, during Buffett’s annual meeting, he remarked that, based on his perspective, the best thing to do was having the S&P 500 index funds. This came as a surprise because he himself didn’t build his empire on index funds (he started with buying the shares of individual companies). But to validate his advice, he revealed that his trustee had invested 90% of his wife’s inheritance into index funds on his directions.

Don’t invest all your money

You probably think that you need a lot of money for you to be as wealthy as Warren Buffett, right? Well yes, you do need money, but not all of it should be used up in investing. In 2014, Buffet said that at least $20 billion is set aside from his wealth as an emergency fund for his company. You should also have an emergency fund if you want to stay in investments for the long term.

Seek knowledge

Lao Tzu once said – those who know, don’t predict, and those who predict, don’t know. As a novice in investing, you may think the field is based on predictions, but that’s not entirely true. You have to learn about the market and its drive. You have to learn how to be a good and disciplined investor. In 2007, Buffett said that he would read every investment book in the Omaha public library when he was ten. Learning arms you to take up any challenge.
