$50 billion, huh? I'll just assume it's $50B after all taxes and fees lol. Since I check my accounts online, I'd probably 1st call the main offices
to make sure it was legit. Then I'd go to the nearest branch and make sure everything was still legit. If so, I'd spend a few days to spread
$49,950,000,000 of it among many different investment accounts (from mutual funds & annuities to large blocks of govt bonds from highly rated
countries). This would help me diversify my risks and guarantee that I could maintain that wealth just from the interest & dividends.
Now that the boring stuff is out of the way, I'd ask that branch what the largest amount is that they can cash out in a single instance. I know that
some banks will actually send you the money w/a Brinks truck if the amount is large enough. So let's assume I could withdraw $1 million in person and
get another $49 million in cash delivered. (I'm starting with those relatively low amounts for a reason).
Out of that first $1 million, I'd put $50,000 aside for myself since I don't need a lot of money to travel/live/enjoy life. Then I'd pay off the debts
of all of my immediate family members. If there was any money left over, I'd use the remaining money to do the same for close friends & friends of the
family. If there was still money left from that first $1 million, it would be allocated equally to everyone I just mentioned. The point would be to
"free" my loved ones & inner circles from the stress of debts.
Now for the $49 million delivered in cash. I'd have it delivered on maybe the 6th or 7th day. The reason for this delay is because I'd put out an
emergency beacon to 490 of my extended family, trustworthy co-workers, semi-friends, high school & college friends, etc (this would include the people
from the previous paragraph). I'd pay for their plane tickets and lodging, and rent out a convention center or the such. When everyone got there, I'd
make it short and sweet. I'd tell them that I hit a lottery of sorts & had a grand plan
to take over the world, muahahahaha!
up a multinational empire. But the catch is that I'd need a lot of talented, professional, and loyal people to help me because I can't do it all by
Then I'd make the offer of a $100,000 account over one year to anyone who joined with me. I'd lay out the plan and all of the job positions that I'd
need filled. Some of that $100,000 would go towards company transportation, paid certification trainings, etc, while some would also go to fund any of
their own entrepreneurship goals (with me being an investor). The goal would be to get all of the groundwork covered quickly and then start multiple
small businesses, political action committees, lobbying firms, and a subsidiary for every one of my life goals (as in, small startups dedicated to
ending global slavery, world hunger, renewable energy projects in African nations, etc). But the alternative goals would be to see who I could really
trust & to help jump start the lives of the ones who'd answered my calls, even if they later abandoned me.
As the months passed & we opened small offices in various states & provinces, I'd start selecting the most trustworthy & ambitious members to join my
executive council. These members would slowly learn about the real extent of my wealth & the various other
countries and industries that I'd been investing in since the first paragraph. They'd learn that my growing public empire of small businesses
literally only represented 0.1% of my wealth, and that they were needed for a much bigger purpose: to become global powerbrokers in their own distinct
As they proved their worth in their respective fields, I'd give them more & more financial backing. I'd pay their way into elite clubs and circles, so
they could hobnob with the world's other powerbrokers. I'd even back their political ambitions, mainly just to raise their ability to influence their
specific fields. And of course, most of the public wouldn't even know of me because I prefer simple clothes, simple foods, simple traveling, etc. And
even if I was spotted in public w/one of powerful underlings, I'd probably just assume the role of a bag boy, personal masseuse, or something lame
like that. mauahahaha!
I'd invest most of the money, then use $50 million to help friends, family, and trusted acquaintances from my past. I'd mainly be helping them jump
start their careers, but I'd also back the ambitions of the ones who proved to be both loyal & competent. My end goal would be to have a close-knit
network of powerful allies and underlings that would help me achieve my lofty global ambitions.
