What Would You Do With a Million, a Hundred Million, or Even A Billion Dollars?

The Universe has aligned me with quite a bit of money today! It all started when I asked the Million Dollar Question over at CustomersAreAlways....

Then I came across Liz Strauss's $100 Million in Ideas...where Liz points out What Would You Do With a Billion Dollars? Incidentally, I tagged Liz to answer my Million Dollar Question even before I read her post, so I know that we're definitely on the same wavelength ;)

Actually, I have to back and say that it probably started yesterday when I came across an old notebook where I wrote down last spring:

"Goals With the $1 Million"

1. Buy an RV to travel all across the U.S.
2. Buy a condo (somewhere less expensive than San Diego!)
3. Buy a hybrid car
4. Give to charity
5. Buy an apartment complex
6. Payoff Credit (I don't use the "D" word, remember?)
7. Take a trip to Amsterdam
8. Give $100,000 to my dad to help with his mortgage
9. Buy a home in Rancho Santa Fe

What would you do with a million, a hundred million, or even a billion dollars? It's a great exercise in expanding your wealth quotient!

HI Maria,
The synchronicity must be the answer because the tag passed right over my head, I'm so steeped in work . . . If I had a lot of money, I'd make sure that all of my family and friends were comfortable and that the only paper in my life was paper I choose to keep.

I'd work on ideas in a place with a fabulous sound system where I could walk and dance while I thought and talked. . . . I'd have a foundation to fund educational causes -- brought by kids who had ideas that the foundation went out and found. FOUNDation.

I visit my friends around the world on a regular basis and just once I'd sleep in a king-size bed on a flying airplane. :)

Liz,

Great thoughts here..FOUNDation - I like that!

I never even knew that king-sized beds existed on airplanes ;) I'll have to try that also.
