I’m not sure if any of you follow Warren Buffett but I do. If you do, you’ll learn a lot about how he operates his companies and his patience to wait for as long as it takes to get what he wants at the price he wants to pay. In fact, he waited years 15 years to buy Wrigley before Wrigley’s biggest competitor Mars stepped in. I heard this story years ago and since way back when, I used to chew Wrigley’s gum. I loved the commercial for Wrigley’ gum.
At that time he also owned Dairy Queen and See’s candy.
