WHAT WOULD I DO WITH $1,000,000?

I know!

You would say something like?

I would quit my job, travel the world, pay my bills and become “debt free”, invest, save, buy a new car the list is ever so endless!

But! If you think. Life for us would be better? Think again!

I know millionaires! Who squander their riches!

I still believe! We! Or us poor folk! Have it better than they do!

I knew a rich family that! before the husband died. His wife was very nice, kind to me. After he died! She (How you say?) practiced  “economics”! Tighter than tight! with the money!

I think it’s the?

Upbringing, educational background, finding a job/career that pays well, the right place, raising a family, etc..

Upbringing! Let’s face it! Our parents do not really know. The how to’s! In raising kids. So! what do they do? “Carbon copy” what their parents did. Not good. Some parents were brought up in a “violent” families, some were not.

Educational background! It depends on the type/kind/quality of education one gets. Education varies from city to city, Government to Government, teacher to teacher.

Does? any of those things have anything to do with becoming a millionaire? YES! & NO! I believe in a way that! Upbringing does make a difference. It’s the way a child is brought up, How it is raised so on. It does become a factor.

Think about this!

Even if you did win or come into $1,000,000! Keep in mind! The “TAXES!” After the taxes! What do you really have? Not as much as when you started.

A million dollars! Does not cure or solve anything!

REMEMBER YOU 1ST. PAYCHECK?

My mom worked for a millionaire family that once owned a print shop. At this place! You had to know someone in order to get in. Because of my mom. I got in via the President of the company. (NO! I DID NOT DO AK!)

I worked in the shipping/receiving department. The boss was an old school guy. He took an immediate disliking to me. Can’t say I did not either!

When I got my first paycheck! It was for $65.52 after taxes and all. When I got home. My mom had her hand out and said: “Give me $20.00 for the board!” Shocked but I did. Then she said to me: “Let’s go to the drive-in!” “I always wanted to go to the drive-in!” We did!

I got paid on Thursday’s. The interesting thing was! By Friday came around. I was broke. But! Mom always had money for me the rest of next week for me.  We had our usual places. Dinner, movie, beverage store, home.  A few years later. I bought an Electra 225! Crapy spray paint job! But! It was mine! I went places as I did when I was a teen on my bike.

Then! I made the most blunderous mistake of my life! I got married! 35 years later! I am on my own! And happy about it!

There is no feeling when! You get your very first paycheck!
