Hey there, investing is definitely a way to make money if you know the right niche to put the money in and do your research from company history and values.
Out of the names you mentioned, Warren Buffet is definitely the biggest name to me. I believe when he was younger he did trade stocks and to succeed he followed a strict formula and did his research extremely well. He did start up his own company which continued to grow extremely big and thats where most of his fortune flows from now.
Investing also requires patience and great observation. If you want to become someone with fortunes as great as those big names I certainly believe that a lot of hard work and dedication will have to go in to see big results.
