Special Free Report From The Motley Fool

With growing children and aging parents, I think about building wealth and retirement all the time.

Recently, though, I heard one particular story that grabbed my attention – and completely changed an outlook that I had years ago.

You see, I recently heard about one American who made his fortune later in life.

His name is Stewart Horejsi and he turned a modest $10,600 investment into an $8,016,867 fortune.

See, Horejsi piggybacked on the success of a man who rewrote the rules of investing.

And not too long ago, a team of Motley Fool analysts scored a front-row seat to hear this man speak. His name is Warren Buffett — the billionaire investor.

Like Horejsi, Buffett amassed his wealth later in life too. In fact, as Buffett blew out the candles on his 50th birthday cake, he had 1% of his current fortune.

Think about it: At an age when most Americans give up hope, Buffett was just getting started on the remaining 99% of his fortune!

50 years old!

So you can imagine how excited they were to find themselves in the same room as Warren Buffett himself.

Buffett fielded questions from those in the room for nearly 6 hours!

The catch was: No one was allowed to record any of it. No audio. No video.

They tried to write down every single word Buffett uttered. Over 10,000 words! I reckon their hands ached.

But boy was I glad they did! Buffett shared many of his master strategies, ones our team believes would-be early retirees can use to build wealth later in life. Even if they need to catch up. And even if the TSX gets clobbered again.

I want to share those strategies and tips with you today — so you can learn strategies like the ones Buffett and Horejsi used to amass their fortunes later in life.
