To Buffet, “if you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die.” This is a very simple lesson that requires a great deal of intelligence and diligence. Warren’s advice is simply that you should invest what you have in the most profitable business that will yield consistent dividends for you.

Do not spend all that you have on luxuries that you can do without. Instead, you should spend money on necessities. And the needs you should consider are the things that add value to you and can drive you to innovation.

These are simple but profound tips that can significantly influence your financial status. With them, you can be rest assured your money problems will be solved in no time.
