Default Totally not balloon related question...blue room.
Here's the question...


WOULD YOU WORK FOR 37,000 A YEAR JOB FOR 15 TO 20 YEARS IF YOU COULD BE YOUR OWN BOSS. AND YOUR BONUS AFTER 15-20 YEARS IS GUARANTEED 60,000 A YEAR INCOME UNTIL YOU DIE. AND YOU LEAVE YOUR CHILDREN 1,000,000 MILLION DOLLARS OR MORE.

Would you take that job? That's the question.

I don't have children, but yes I would. If I was trying to support a family, that would be rough.

Nah, I'm already earning significantly more than that and should be able to comfortably retire early, and will not be having children due to my own preferences.

This being a theoretical question, it would depend on what youŽd need to do in the job.

Being your own boss can be nice, but also can bring lots of risks with it. Like... if you have your own small buisiness set up, and you rely on customer orders. What if the customers wonŽt buy as much things as you have to offer? Just thinking...

Thanks Galdo. Acutally, thanks to those that replied.

Im really close to 50. And I took that bet. I live very simply. I live off about 37,000 a year.

And I own a company worth about 850,000. I can't touch that company, or earn real income from it until I'm 55. Or whatever the retirement laws are in 2045.

The company earns more than I do at this point. And I can't touch any of it. Company money just keep rolling it over into the company.

It was an honest non fetish related question I wanted to ask here. Where I get the truth.
