You are given $100,000, all of your debt is forgiven, and living expenses are all taken care of for two years. How do you turn that into generational wealth?

  1. Take that hundred Gs and two years covered, and get a finance degree. Go to one of the big consulting firms, and work 80 hour weeks for the next ten years, while you continue to live like a broke college student. Now do another 15 years. At some point during this, have a kid. Now you’ll have millions in the bank, and a kid to leave it to.

  2. Invest:

    1) in real estate, can be rented generating revenue which will compound or on which I can live in removing that expense;

    2) in your education. Although education is not equal to greater income it does open doors raising the ceiling and increasing future revenue;

    3) opening my own company. Most often is the initial investment that is the hardest as in the beginning it won’t generate much revenue. This can be sold or inherited.

  3. Get married, have a child, hire a prostitute and an assassin using $20,000, kill my self, have the prostitute sleep with my kid as soon as they’re 18, and then the assassin kills them as soon as the kid is born. Easy 2 generations of wealth

  4. For me the living expenses for 2 years are worth as much as the $100k, so that doubles the money I’d have at the end of the 2 years already. Presumably “all your debt is forgiven” also includes my mortgage, so thats my house paid off which is a huge portion of my expenses forever paid off after that.

    Its not enough to make any changes in the immediate term, but this would give a huge head start in how fast investing would go. By the time I die my mortgage plan alone is already planned to be just over 7 figures and I only invest a few hundred a month. This would allow me to invest my full mortgage payment each month, over tripling the investment.

    Just storing in a savings account the money I’d be putting towards mortgage for 25 years would end me up with several hundred thousand in the bank. Investing that in an index fund along with the $100k, maxing out my ISAs and mortgage payments each year, my retirement fund would be so large when I die my kids would never have to work. Time is a super powerful thing, and this just gives you a 20 year head start thanks to the house.

  5. Use the money to pay the premiums on a massive life insurance policy, then wait 2 years and kill myself. Life insurance typically pays out on suicide, but only after 2 years. Really the only guaranteed way to turn $100K into massive wealth.
