He works as a songwriter, musician, actor, author, and businessman. Apart from music, he owns a couple of restaurants in the US. Earlier he even had a minority stake in two baseball teams.

Buffett has authored a couple of best sellers which include “A Pirate Looks at Fifty”, “Where Is Joe Merchant?” and “Tales from Margaritaville”.
