The authoritative biography of Warren Buffett was aptly named: Snowball. When a snowball starts at the top of the mountain, it can easily fit in your hand. It takes lots of rolling time to double in size, as its lightness makes it hard to pick up more snow. But there is a tipping point, at which the snowball reaches a critical mass, and when combined with gravity, the object doubles, triples, and quadruples in size as it picks up momentum. The snowball becomes an entirely different animal, functioning by its own set of rules.
The exact same can be said for how some — but certainly not all — billionaires make their money work for them. The 1% of investors play by a very different set of rules than us Main Street folks trying to save for retirement. Once they have reached a point at which their financial future is secure, they can take far more — not less — calculated risk with their wealth. And this is a tactic us non-billionaires can learn some lessons from.

It can get even more obscure, like Petmed Express Inc. (NASDAQ:PETS), the online pet pharmacy that’s certainly not a household name for most people and certainly not investors.
