Let me introduce myself. My name is Wouter (25 years old) from Holland. After reading the Intelligent Fanatics books I decided to join this community.
I am very delighted that so many people share the same passion for business and investing as me. I want to thank the editors of this community for the great content and stories you guys have posted.
I found the Intelligent Fanatics books after it was shared on Twitter by none other than Chris Mayer. The author of 100 baggers. One of my favorite books on long term investing, high ROIC and owner-operator led companies.
After starting a company (Inhuren.com) in Holland at the age of 19 I als started to very fanatically reading about businesspeople and investors. After reading the Roger Lowenstein book ‘‘The Making of an American Capitalist’’ in 2013 I decided I wanted to be an investor.
Very early on I found out that by studying other investors and businesspeople I became a much better businessman myself. The fundamentals and lessons I learn are applied to my business. Actually managing a business gives you a lot of understanding about other businesses as well.
Recently I finished reading Bad Blood, The Smartest guys in the room and Saudi America. Which I all very much enjoyed.
Because of this community I decided to dive deeper into the Indian economy and Indian companies. An education I will continue for the foreseeable future…
