Betting on the lottery …


Ill Liquidity candidly (yet, I am sure, at least a little tongue-in-cheek) shares his plan to make $7 million:

That’s the problem with most retirement plans. I figure I’ll be lucky to still want to be able to do the things I want to do now if I can make it to retirement. That’s why I, and everyone else, would like to have a 7million7year plan of my own. Right now it’s betting on the lottery.

Coincidentally, on the same day that I settled on one of my development sites (it was the $3 mill. one) I was offered a lottery ticket by a vendor … I declined, to which he said “it’s only $7 and you can win $15 mill.”

If anybody can afford $7 it’s me … yet, $15 mill. would offer a huge benefit to me, too … my blog would become $21 mill in 9 years, for example 😉

However, I still politely declined and the look on his face was one of clear non-belief i.e. “who in their right mind would turn down $15 mill. for $7”.

You see, most people’s only plan to make $7 mill. is “betting on the lottery” …

… but, that’s NEVER been my plan.

I wonder if that’s one reason why I’m rich today?

  1. Maybe I could be like that mathmatician who bought the machines that print the tickets and then hire people min wage to print most all of the tickets, thus putting the odds seriously in my favour? What if I only buy one ticket? The answer, surprisingly, is that betting on the lottery can be a winning strategy, it just takes a long, long, long, time to pay off. And you have to be rich enough that you don’t even care if you win.
    So, I agree, what I consider my “right vehicle” may be ride like a tiger woods Escalade, I can’t seem to find a better solution except working for a living. But I do have this great idea for a man bra, I think I’ll call it the manzier. I hope the dragons like it!

    @ Ill Liquidity – I think you just solved you problem of “how to get my Number into your Bank Account” 😉
