Repeat after me “half a billion dollars!”
That is like Bill Gates kind-of-money. What would I (or anyone else) do with all that money? Hmmm, let me count the ways….
Of course, I would love to pay off my home mortgage and that of all my family members.
Of course, I would love to finally buy that beach front home to spend our summers in.
Of course, I would set aside money for college tuition for both my children and for all my nieces and nephews.
Of course, I would plan vacations to destinations all around the world for me and 50 of my nearest and dearest.
Of course, I would set aside a portion of the money for a rainy day and establish trust funds for the children.
And that is where I draw a blank. What else would I do with half a billion dollars?
Oh yes, of course I would buy clothes and shoes and shoes and some more shoes. And maybe, just maybe, I would give up my position at the office and dedicate myself to writing full-time!
And then what?
Oh yes, I think I know what I will do. Once I have full filled all of the items above, I will donate the remaining amount to charity and give $100,000 away in increments of $1000 to anyone who leaves me a comment on this post. In other words, the first 100 people to comment will receive $1000. In your comment, please indicate what you would do with your $1000. And one entry per person please 🙂
Hey…you never know.
