What if I Sold?

2. March 2009 03:20 by Scott in   //  Tags: , ,   //   Comments (9)

Lets say, Lets say you sold your company or start up tomorrow and never had to work or worry about money again.  Putting it at a nice round number of $10 mil ($10,000,000).  What would you do next?  Where would you go?  Are you happy with what you have right now?  I contemplated this idea that if I did have that kind of money after just selling my business, I wouldn't try to blow it. Though I would do a few things like pay off my bills of course which would be such a small sampling of that money.  So what would I do next?

  • I would leave everything behind and go travel for a year.  Get away from everything and just live.
  • I would keep in shape with my new Erg (rowing machine)
  • I would stop setting the alarm clock.
  • I would stop saying I have to work.
  • I would spend more time with my lovely girl friend.
  • I would throw deadlines out the window.
  • I would study up on things. Learn another language that I never had time for while I traveled.
  • Start a charitable foundation that allowed me to improve the world by small increments.
  • Invest in developing nations, give people in third world countries micro loans.
  • Invest in an incubator for other start ups.
  • Live somewhere long enough to learn their language.  Tuscany always sounded nice.
  • Get my teaching certificate and teach kids how to create software in high school, NOT college.
  • Tutor kids.
  • Spend some time in quiet reflection.  Take a few months to clear my mind and gather my thoughts on self worth.
Last, but definitely not least.
  • I would do it again.
  • Create a hacker house for the like minded.
  • Once is luck, but twice is a skill.

Thanks for letting me share.  What are your ideas?  I would love to hear them and see what you would do.  I hopefully one day will have something like this. Lets see what I can do.  

It is possible to make $10 Mil. Just stop telling your self someday.

Remember that:

  1. You make your own choices, and there is always tradeoffs.  Start trading something else for creating a startup.
  2. Stop telling your self someday.  It can easily turn into never.  Don't wait for the stars to align to get it done, just do it now.
