GENUINE is talking about winning the 350 million dollar lottery. He asked about 5 things people would do with the money (after donating to charities etc.).

Here was my answer:

5 things to do with 350 million dollars

  1. Pay off our house, my parent’s house, my in-laws’ houses and buy my sister a house in Paris (where she lives) and set them all up for life.
  2. Buy a house out in the middle of the Uinita Mountains with lots of gorgeous land for us (my husband would be soooo happy!)
  3. Get a plane and learn to fly it so I could commute to the city to teach Suzuki violin lessons (Or just pay others to fly it – but it would be fun to fly it myself too).
  4. Help develop my sister’s website project la passerelle. And buy art from her site…
  5. Buy a Stradivarius Violin and play chamber music with my friends (buy them their choice of instruments too)…Buy chamber music scores.

So what would you do? 5 things you would do with 350 million dollars assuming you have already donated a lot of the money to your favorite charities and you’ve invested well so it won’t go away…

  1. 1. Spend as much money as would be necessary to take my children on a trip around South America, including the Andes, the Cape, the Amazon, and everything in between — SAFELY. 🙂 Might take a lot of money.

    2. Buy a nice big house with a music room and a giant gorgeous spectacular piano to put in it.

    3. Found a school and recruit suitable teachers with irresistible salaries. Send my children there.

    4. Buy an established but floundering small press and have fun choosing and promoting books.

    5. Buy a 45 foot sailboat and get my husband to sail us around the world for a year or two. 🙂 🙂
