What would you do with a million dollars?

This is an execellent question, people want money because they feel that  isn’t enough what they have, but the point is: What are you going to do after you get the money?

If really probably that if you don’t have a plan of what to do with a million dollars you can lose it in a couple of years – or months! – so the best advice is to put it in the bank in case you don’t know what to do with it.

Other advice is to invest it, you can put the money in the bank and after that to ask for a loan in the bank and invest that money in a profitable business, before thinking in expensing think in investing, if not you can lose your money.

Have you ever lied about your age? Why?

I have never lied about my age, the point is that people normally don’t believe me when I say my age. I’m 25 years old, but people use to say that I’m really mature for my age and also say that my voice is really grave for somebody from my age.

I remember when I was a teenager, like 16 or 17, people used to say that I looked like 22 or 23, they almost never believe that I had the aged that I said, nowadays I’m 25 and married, I think people now use to believe me.

And what about you, Have you ever lied about your age? Why?

Could you live without the internet for a week? For a month?

This is an excellent question. Nowadays the internet is part of our lives, even the cars have Wi-Fi so is very easy to be on-line. For me is not easy, I use the internet more than twelve hours a day, I even work on internet, so is not easy for, but two weeks ago I decided not to use the internet for one week – I’m Christian – so in that week I Prayed, rode the Bible and Worship more than I normally do – because I chose that week for having a deeper relationship with The Lord.

Now is common to be on-line almost the whole day, and there are so much devices that let you to be connected, with the Social Networks is even more difficult not to be connected from ours PCs, Laptops,  Netbooks, Smart Phones, etc.

Now I ask you: Could you live without the internet for a week? For a month?

I would like to know your answer.
