Everyone at my school is really rich, and they all get to do all these extravagant things that I've always wanted to do,

Everyone at my school is really rich, and they all get to do all these extravagant things that I've always wanted to do, but I'll never be able to do because my family is poor. It makes me really sad. What do I do? Why be sad? Be ambitious . I went to a rich kid school where I was one of the poorer ...

What’s the better option for investing in real estate, buying a rental or flipping?

Buying property with little or no money down is easy. You make your money buying right. I mean below market. This is easy 1) If you look at a lot of deals 2) pick up ugly ducklings & beautify them. Flipping? Not so easy. It means selling at a profit after closing costs, attorney fees, planning p...

Why don’t some schizophrenics want a relationship?

Why can’t some schizophrenics maintain relationships? One of my 5 wives was a schizo. What was the attraction? She was good looking & sexy. Seemed normal at first. This was 40 years ago! Getting free of her was a long and expensive process. She seemed to want a relationship and financial support...

If I give you a million dollars and you can only spend that on a selfless cause, how would you spend that money and why?

Charity begins at home: I have at least 1,000 poor relatives in my extended family in the Philippines. So I would set up a trust or foundation type of arrangement, & probably run it myself. I’d give the most capable kids financial support to get through high school, college and professional scho...

Is it selfish to be tight with my money?

“A penny saved is a penny earned.” As in many things, there is no right and wrong. Is it selfish to be a vegetarian? The answer to your question is that being careful or squandering money is a matter of personal preference. A guy I knew vaguely was in court once — in one of those inevitable divorce ...

Is 7 million dollars a year enough to feed a family of 5?

Is 7 million (USA$) dollars a year enough to feed a family of 5? Yes, it’s enough even if their diet is nothing but gold dust and diamonds. Ask a silly question and you get a silly answer. See my other answers on QUORA or Peter Taradash <http://petertaradash.com/> for more serious answers to real qu...

What is the most valuable routine of a high net worth individual?

One thing I have noticed is that good business people are never “too busy” to make a deal or serve a customer. Yesterday, I was standing outside the door of a furniture store about 5 minutes before the scheduled closing time. A guy rushed up. An employee (surely not the owner???) was locking up and ...

Can Quora kick people out because they use a "pen name?"

Maybe they can with USA writers, but under European Union laws, anyone who writes anything on an internet site has the absolute right to use any pen name he/she pleases. I can give exact citations of the law, if requested. Exceptions: No using famous people’s names whether alive or dead unless it ha...
