I have decided to explore ideas that could make me a billionaire.
Once I have become one and sorted out my personal affairs, then I would treat myself...nothing too fancy though.
I don't need a posh car or huge mansion, but I would really like a yacht. Again nothing too fancy. It doesn't even need to float. I will just plant it into the plot I will buy next to a river.
You see although I think I could sail it downwind, in the past whenever I have tried to sail, even just on a windsurfer, I could not seem to 'tack' into the wind to get back. I just could not get the logic of it and was left trying to paddle back to shore, or having to wait until someone came out to assist me.
Some may argue that that has been done before. Ja but no but Amazon.com would obviously have to restrict their trade to those living in the area of that river. Okay perhaps after negotiations we will let them have the whole of Brazil.
My Nile.com would handle North Africa and Arabia.
As I expand I will have Ganges.com which will allow me to access the most heavily populated river basin in the world in India.
But my main prize will be to get Yangtze.com. Then I will be able to sell to the whole of the Chinese online shopping market.
I may skip Mississippi.com as people will struggle to spell it.
Okay before that I would also have to make sure that everyone can read and have cheap access to computers and bandwidth.
Hang on before that even, I would have to also use some of my billions to ensure that they feel secure in their homes, have proper healthcare and have jobs so that they and their families have enough money to buy food.
By the way, ensuring potential customers have enough to eat is really important. As we all know, you can't really shop on or offline on a empty stomach!
I really will have my work cut out for me when I become a billionaire. Perhaps I should start off a bit smaller by just registering 'little-stream-that-runs-past-our-flat.com' and take it from there.
