It is many people´s dream to make a load of cash from the internet without doing anything, and to be free of 9-5 drudgery. Most people quickly realize that this is not the case, that basically making money on the internet is like running your own business, with the same amount of work and commitment involved. But after the first few years of struggle, pulling your hair out with frustration, making mistakes, making bad decisions and learning from them, you eventually start getting things right. The money starts coming, and that freedom you dreamed about when you first started suddenly becomes a reality. Now what?
The sensible thing to do would be to reinvest and continue to grow your business, but there is no point doing it at all if you are not going to enjoy the fruits of you labour, so I am going to take a lighthearted break and look at what I will get with all my cash.
Bloody great big posh villa in Spain
I live in Barcelona, and need to be closeby for regular business meetings, so I would buy this luxury villa for sale in Spain, located about an hour by car outside of Barcelona. It has an enormous 571m2 house, set in 69,000 m2 of land. The bedrooms all have en-suite bathrooms with jacuzzis in them, there is a big old swimming pool, a 4 car garage for all my posh motors I am going to buy and loads of land. Best of all, it is self sufficient and environmentally friendly, with its own underground water supply, and a windmill to generate electricity. And there is a huge office overlooking a terrace where I can do my internet work from. Bargain at 3.3 million Euros.
Big posh cars to put in garage of afformentioned luxury villa
I always wanted one of these Jaguar Xk8s in British racing green ever since the baddy in James bond drove one: they still look beautiful after 15 years and are sure to be a classic, with a big fat 4 litre v8 engine. In British racing green. Its not new or particularly expensive, but it is classy. At least I think so.
Other cars I would buy are the mercedes SLS AMG, and probably a Volvo Diesel estate for doing the shopping with the missus.
And perhaps some quad-bikes and go-karts and stuff.
A bouncy castle
So as not to be a predictable rich sod, I would get a big bouncy castle to put in my massive garden. This I would jump on every morning to remind me not to take life too seriously. Until I invariably sprain my foot, which always seemed to happen when I went on one of these as a kid.
I would also get a very expensive hobby, such as hot-air ballooning. I love the idea of floating leisurely above the trees, not knowing where I will end up. For added amusement, I would get myself one of those balloons in the shape of something ridiculous, such as this jesus hot air balloon. No offense to anyone.
Employ someone to play practical jokes on sales people
I would employ somebody full time to answer my telephone, and everytime someone calls wanting me to change my internet service providor, electricity provider or mobile phone provider, say OK. As every company calls at least once a week, they will all get terribly confused by the constant switching backwards and forwards between the companies. For the rest of the time, I would get my employee to mail random people with 20€ bills, just because I would be extremely delighted if someone did that to me.
