Entrepreneur Matt Argall Takes Investment Advice From Warren Buffet

MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 09/04/14 -- Warren Buffett's decision to back Burger King's inversion transaction to buy Canada's Tim Hortons doughnut chain has made the headlines on newspapers around the world lately. While other companies escape the country and outsource their production and their investments to circumvent corporate taxes in the United States, Buffett is doing just the opposite. His decision might seem risky to a layman, but experienced investors, such as Florida-based entrepreneur Matt Argall, know that the first impression of financial deals can be deceitful. "Warren Buffett once revealed a simple investment rule," Argall explains. "He said 'Be Willing To Be Different.' And with his investment in a U.S.-based company he proves that he is trusting his own advice." So far Buffett's plan seems to add up: Burger King shares rose by about 19% after Buffett's decision was made public.

Numerous smart investments have made Warren Buffett a wealthy man; in 2008 he even topped the annual Forbes' list of the richest men in the world. Buffett discovered his business talent at a young age, selling chewing gum and magazines door to door in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska. Buffett filed his first tax return when he was only 14 years old and launched a successful pinball machine enterprise with a high school friend soon after. Today, Warren Buffett is worth around 55 billion dollars and his investment firm, Berkshire Hathaway, owns several notable American companies, such as GEICO, Fruit of the Loom, Dairy Queen, Helzberg Diamonds, and half of Heinz.

For Matt Argall, this is a good reason to turn to Warren Buffett for investment advice. Some of Buffett's tips have indeed become helpful guidelines to his business decisions on a daily basis, Argall reveals. One of those tips is "Be fearful when others are greedy, and be greedy when others are fearful," a piece of advice Argall always has in the back of his head when he does his due diligence on potential investment or business ideas. Driven by his passion for innovative developments, especially in the field of technology, Argall sometimes finds himself hesitating, at least a little bit. "Investments in new inventions are exciting," says Argall. "But at the same time they bring along a certain risk and responsibility in case things don't work out as planned." Thanks to his experience and business instincts, however, Argall can look back on a career full of fruitful decisions. And like Buffett, he is not planning on quitting any time soon.

Another Buffett quote that Matt Argall takes to heart is "Know What Success Really Means." "Of course making money and achieving profitable deals is important," says Argall. "But money is not everything. The more successful you become, the higher your social responsibility is." And Argall does his best to live up to that responsibility. For years he has been one of the main sponsors of Pascal's Pals, a local organization that helps families whose children have to stay in the hospital. And on an international level, Argall has been supporting victims of the earthquake in Haiti as well as startup businesses in developing countries.
