    One thing I've always wanted to do was help homeless people and people that want to be helped who are down on their luck. I think if I were rich, I'd donate a bunch of money to people with shelters and help people who want to work get jobs.

    Also, I'd probably buy a lambo and a medium sized house (I don't like huge houses... they're scary). And... go to the raceways for cars.

    What would you do?

    I would firstly invest a large porportion into sound businesses, or set up a few recession proof businesses, enjoy life, have a wife and kids, play golf..

    Also by my dream house which would have to be custom built.
    I want a 4 or 5 story one, with a large swimming pool in the basement, and have a large section of the floors of each story taken out, so like you can dive off the 5th story, through the house , into the pool. Also have some slides in it. That would rock.

    Also lambo...! My favourite car make.

    I'd set up foundations in developing countries to help entrepreneurs and would-be entrepreneurs, and try to instill some sense of community philanthropy in the process. Teach a man to fish...

    If I ever become a multi-millionaire, I'm going to give you the money to build that house under the condition that I can hang out there whenever I want.

    As for myself though? I'd put $1m away into a nice savings account - I'd get a modest house (3-4 bedroom, 2 story, outside the city), and a fibre optic broadband line. This shouldn't cost more than around $300-400k. Might even just put this on a 10 year mortgage.

    The only majorly expensive thing I'd keep would be my car - probably an Aston Martin DB9. I'd also keep a Hayabusa/SV1000s on standby for whenever there's a touch of good weather.

    I'd then spend the rest of money playing the game - gambling, investing, starting up new businesses, and travelling. It ain't about the money my man, it's just about playing the game :)

    slay it (slave hard at work, and then get rich)
    play it (play the game,enjoy life , travel/gamble/fuck hundreds of bitches cause tiger woods is no longer your competition in that area, and play by your rules, not the worlds)
    and lay it (when your dead 6 feet in the ground, the only thing you are burried with is a smile on your face. You write in your will to have everything you bought in your life to be donated to some charities or burned for the fun of it)

    slay it , play it, and lay it my friends.

    To be honest, right now I'd save most of it.

    Maybe spend a small amount on going out, concerts, etc but likely no big purchases except maybe a nice big monitor + new computer possibly.

    Saving is the best option.

    In the long term I'd end up travelling and living life to the fullest.

    wtf is this lambo fetish here?! lol
    if you want to buy a sports car buy a koenigsegg/mclaren f1, if you want to buy a car that suits you buy a maserati/aston martin but not a fuckin lambo which is already in every street corner of your city, anybody who owns a lambo and doesn't have at least 5 ferraris in the garage, he's not considering rich at all at least in my eye, he lives well, but nothing more...

    btw what's the definition of rich?

    oh, and everybody with lambo fetish, have you heard of the newest horrific lambo story, driver and passenger died in a crash on a demo drive:

    A foundation is always good instead of just giving the money to the poor. One could set up foundations all over the country to help families in need.

    I would first Give to charity, Churches, Foundation's, To those needy person who barely are making monthly ends, I would then start a scholarship drive for students who are looking to further expand their education. I would then build orphanages in poor develop countries and help the homeless.

    Secondly i would then start to acquire Assets: apartments , real estate, purchase franchises, Purchase computer repair, software development companies, I would then open different dealership, Construction , tire repair , auto repair, plumbing companies. I would then open different clothing stores, restaurant chains, night clubs, gym's. After opening and acquiring those different things my money would then start to pay for my liabilities and expense's

    Then using the money i am making from my Assets i would first purchase a Lamborghini black on black, a Maserati, and maybe a Ferrari or a Mclaren. 2 story home, 4 -5 room's, swimming pool, I would then purchase apartments in New York, La, Miami, Paris, London, I would also purchase a home in the Caribbean, For the rest i would just rinse and repeat the first and second points.

    If I was like Bill Gates or Warren Buffet rich, I'd start a charity-investment firm and be a DIRECT contributor in most cases.

    Figure the firm deal with 10 billion dollars, they see an average 9% on the market return. I would take 4.5% and reinvest it in the firm, and take the other 4.5% and help various needs. Starting with the most basic need: Food, or how to grow crops.

    The charity-investment firm would have compounding interest on the reinvestment and only get bigger year after year, while still helping people.

    Donate about 10% to charity, have a nice and comfortable lifestyle doing whatever I feel like with the other 90%.
