The 56 years old Peter is an Emmy award-winning musician who has been active in the industry for more than 30 years. Peter started his musical career in early 1980’s in San Fransisco, living in a small apartment. Then, he used most of his funds expanding his recording equipment, and most of his time playing piano, writing tunes and experimenting with electronic sounds.
Later, he gave a classified ad in San Francisco Chronicle, offering to record all comers in his studio. Finally, in 1981, his neighbor introduced Peter to his animator son-in-law, who was working on creating a 10-second logo ad for a newly started cable channel, now known as MTV. Peter then worked for the project and the rest is history.
Inheritance and Musical Career
Indeed, Peter has successfully set his own path despite being the son of a multi-billionaire. At the age of 19, he just received $90,000 inheritance from his billionaire father. His father Warren was against spoiling the kids. Peter used the money to sustain his music career when he dropped out from the Stanford University.
When I turned 19, I received my inheritance—proceeds from the sale of a farm, which my father converted into Berkshire Hathaway stock. At the time I received them, the shares were worth roughly $90,000. It was understood that I should expect nothing more.
So—what to do with the money? I was a student at Stanford University; there were no strings attached. Fortunately, I’d had the advantage of seeing my older siblings burn through most of their cash; I didn’t want to follow down that path. At the other extreme, I might have done absolutely nothing with that stock—just left it in an account and forgotten about it. If I’d picked that option, my shares would now be worth around $72 million. But I didn’t make that choice, and I don’t regret it for a second. People think I’m either lying or crazy when I say this, but it happens to be true, because I used my nest egg to buy something more valuable than money: I used it to buy time.
