There are two kinds of people: the ones that you want to look up to and the ones you do not. Some of the rich influential people are born wealthy while others work hard for what they have. We are living in a world were money is everything, therefore, if you have money you have power. Some use this power for good while others take advantage to keep gaining power. As an example we are going to se how to powerful men grew up, built their empire, and gave back to the community. In this case, we are going to be looking on how Warren Buffett uses his power for good and Donald Trump takes advantage of it. .
We can tell many things about a person by the way they grew up. Both Warren Buffet and Donald Trump were lucky enough to be raised in an economically stable family and obtained a high education by attending college. However, they both took different paths. Warren Buffet started saving money at a very young age. At 14, he started delivering newspaper and by high school he was the only student who owned a tenant farm and earned more money than his teachers. Therefore, we can see that Buffett showed a great talent and interest for business in investments (Maslin 2008). On the other hand, Donald Trump worked only during the summers and for his father's company. This shows that he did not experience looking for jobs, it was given to him by his father. During this time, he found a love for business in the field of construction and project developments. .
Warren Buffet and Donald Trump have managed to build very successful empires; both being recognized in the list of the wealthiest men in the United States. They're business men that gain popularity with their respective actions, whether they are good or bad. Buffett managed his money correctly and was named the wealthiest man alive. Therefore, he invested his money and handled his company very wisely. Warren Buffett's empire was built slowly, but consistently; it was like a rolling snowball ("Warren Edward" 2015).
