questionnaires of a Lifetime: March 2012
So…. The question is this. What would you do if You had a Million Dollars, lets say tax free!)
This is my answer:So I was fascinated by Your question over dinner about what I would do if I had a million bucks! I have taken time to reflect on the answer.
First and foremost, yes, I would take at least half, possibly even $600,000 and do the safe investment that pays me every single month the dividends. This way I would never lose the original capital and would have it to retire on in the future. I heard you could bank a fre grand every month just with the interest on this kind of cash!
Second, if I did happen to have a Mortgage, which I do not, I would pay off any outstanding bills. Maybe that stupid lawsuit that only has 6 months to pay off. Pre-pay my property taxes in advance, renovate my house to get it ready to rent out, but my bills are not that bad! That would be another $1,000 a month to live on and maybe more! Zillow says more like 12 to $1300 for Rental price on my current Tullis Palace and Estate! This would be a good chunk of change!
Third would be the new Dream house on a Lake. I would prefer to pay cash if possible, so the actual price would have to be known before I could figure out how to spend the rest.
Fourth. I would simply have to give something back to a charity, or cause I believe in. Maybe helping animals, or something to do with Music and the Arts. I do not know how much, but it would be tax deductible, and make me feel good.
Fifth. I would consider some kind of Business Adventure. Use some of the Capitol perhaps to buy a Tavern, or start a small Pawn Shop, or Cool shop of some kind. Maybe even a Laundromat or some kind of coin operated arcade. I would have to investigate the possibilities!
Somewhere along the way a VACATION would be in there. Some place warm, but I would need to find a friendly travel companion first. I would take loads of pictures for Facebook, videos and more, but be only gone about 10 days at a time. I have never been to Hawaii, and always wanted to go to Italy! But not as a solo traveller again. No way!
Plus I would be more willing to go to more concerts, and dinners, and things that are a “Luxury” now, since would be in the green with no worries and a dream house , and loving it! So hat would you do if you had the same opportunity?
Fun question really! I have had a good time with it!
