2001: After the first business is pretty much stable, started another business venture which failed, but from which he learnt tons of stuff.
2002: Started his journey in the investing world. About 2 years later, he found “The Intelligent Investor” and Value Investing
2003: Left the trading business in his wife’s care to manage his father’s new P.E.T bottle-plant.
