      Don't be a dreamer planning on how to spend your future wealth. Create the income first - and then decide how to spend it. Works better that way.

        Funny you say that. Most sensible people would say that BUT...

        In a one of Gary Bencivenga's bullets or pieces of marketing advice entlitled "The 3 Greatest Copywriting lessons", he said that visualising what it would be like when you've made it or visualising the ideal that you want before you get it, is a very important part in the road to achieving it.

        The more you imagine and the more detailed you can make that picture, the better it is, as it acts as a motivator.

        "Doing this will inspire you to live out your vision."

        I've heard this same advice echoed by other very successful people.

            I like the idea of visualising the results before hand. In fact before Jim Carrey became famous he wrote himself a cheque for a very large sum of money even though he didn't have it at the time. Apparently that motivated him to get to where he is now.

            My above post was actually in reference to this reply to your post:

    1. Start a dog farm in Texas. Make them wear sunglasses and funny hats.

    2. Spend time in forums with a very disturbing quote in my signature line.

    The bartender says: "We don't serve faster-than-light particles here."

    ...A tachyon enters a bar.

    Gamble

    drink irresponsibly.

    feel up random women at strip clubs

    Hide from the wife.

    Then sober up....and sit down and work out a way to ramp things up to $20,000 a month.

    Probably with more media buys, bigger email lists, more JV's, and especially more affiliates and adding products to the sales funnel and stuff.

    Then when all is said and done, go back to the gambling and drinking irresponsibly thing again, cause I bloody earnt it. LOL

    I second the dog farm idea - Let's JV!




    And on the serious side, I'd go with what Kay said.

    I would first put some money in the bank into a decent account like an IRA.
    I would then also put some money into a bank account for our son.
    I would also put some aside for my wife and I to enjoy a bit of it.
    I would give my mom and dad some money to help them out during their rough moments.
    I would reinvest a portion of it to try to upscale it to 12k a month, then 15k, rinse & repeat.
    I would buy a chunk of food and give it to a homeless shelter
    I would give some to a children's charity or elderly charity of some sort (or cancer charity especially after losing an aunt, an uncle, and a close friend to it and seeing others who continue to suffer from it)
    I would give some to a small but reputable church (I gotta give some back to God if I'm ever lucky enough to be blessed with making 10k or more a month every month!)

    I would put some aside til I made enough 10k or more months and then get us a bigger house, a new car (fearing my old little 2001 Saturn will kick the bucket sooner or later), and other things.

    No particular order but things I would love to do with money if I had it.

    I would look for a way to invest it in new businesses or to make my current business grow while spending the rest on me and my family.

    Myself...I would get out of debt and then once that was done. I would begin finding charities to help and do mystery santa every christmas and maybe a mystery bunny for easter and mystery leprechaun for st patty's day....I think you get the idea.

    Oh, I forgot to say...ramp up to $20,000/mo.

    I would use it to pay the bills, then split the remainder between reinvestment and saving for a Mercedes (my end-of-the-year goal).

    You can get one a few years old (07-09) for $50K, or $89k retail new; I'd get one a couple of years old to save a few decades. God, they look beautiful.

      Would reinvest into my business to up the output so that it reaches a point where I dont need to think about what to do when I have 10K free, that can be used any way I deem appropriate.

    I'd take 5K and invest it back into my business and I'd take the other 5K and move out of my parent's house. I hate living living with them and my dad likes to make rude comments about how my business is going to fail and how he's going to have to support me until he dies. Once I get my business up to 15K a month, I'll pay my parents back for letting me stay with them for so long.

      I would be very careful on how I used it though. If you have a large sum of money to use for your business it's easy to go overboard and waste it. You need to make sure your using your dollars as most effectively as you can. You need to have a well thought out plan and strategy.

      Basically get the most value out of your dollar.
      Exactly. Most people who spend large sums of cash on their business find that it's gone before they make anything in return.

    I would recommend to diversify into real estate. Offline profits are just as important, if not more important than online profits.

    You invest it. Put money in FX, buy and sell a few businesses, use the capital to build and grow other online businesses...then begin investing profits from those ventures into passive income streams..IE...income producing real estate.
