The Decision That Changed Warren Buffett's Life

Warren Buffett started investing when he was only 11 years old, but he didn't begin to master his craft until he met Ben Graham, the father of value investing. Much of Buffett's early investing was based on strategies he learned from Ben Graham. However, looking at Buffett's recent track record today, much of his investment process has changed and been influenced by Charlie Munger and Phil Fisher.

In the following video, Motley Fool analysts Matt Koppenheffer and David Hanson discuss the lessons they learned from Warren Buffett while attending the annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholder meeting in Omaha, Nebraska. During the meeting, Warren Buffett and his business partner, Charlie Munger, took questions from shareholders for nearly 6 hours and provide their thoughts on everything from investing, corporate governance, and personal success. The discussion regarding the influence of Munger vs. Graham took center stage on several different occasions. Matt and David discuss why Buffett needed to switch to a more encompassing view of the investment world in order to be successful managing a massive conglomerate.
