Question of the Week #248

You meet someone at a party and absolutely know that if you talk to him, he’ll make you tens of millions of dollars, but after 2 years you’ll go bankrupt and have to scramble to get back on your feet. Would you start the conversation? Assume that if you do, your knowledge of what’s in store for you will vanish.

No, I’d avoid that conversation. I’m sure I’m much better off not knowing what it’s like to be that wealthy than to get a taste of it temporarily only to drop back to less than what I have now. No, thank you.

Short answer from me this week, but what would you do in that situation? Let me know down in the comments!

  1. YES! yes, I would. If before you ever walk up to this person you Know that everything changes after 2 years, but also knowing that you won’t remember that fact once you do talk to them….here let me explain♡☆♡ I have 7 children and my middle daughter we all call “the mess” or the problem child”.

    For 2 years, I would FORCE her into rehab. If someone gave you 2 years to save your child’s life, then you better believe I would take it.

    To hell with my own needs, I can and have survived being broke and homeless. And how many wealthy people declare bankruptcy while still having a bunch of money. Obviously going bankrupt is not quite the same today as it was 50+ years ago when my dad went bankrupt.
