1. Who would you call? It's a toss-up between my accountant and a lawyer (probably George, for a referral).
2. What is the first thing you buy for yourself?
A specific piece of real estate, the lots my father owned (and my brother inherited and sold), which I would buy NOW if I could figure out how to afford an extra $1000 a month for the next 30 years.
3. What is the first thing you would buy for someone else?
I'd have to do triage, and determine which friends most need a rent payment or two, or food money, or whatever. And it wouldn't be just a single person...
4. Do you give any away?
A LOT of it. Big donations, as opposed to small donations, to the charities I already give money. Also, see answer to 3.
5. Invest any? Is real estate an investment? The lots wouldn't count, but I've toyed with the idea of something like a rental property somewhere, because I've always loved property ownership ("land's the only thing that matters, because land's the only thing that lasts..."). But how much would be left after 2, 3, and 4 above?
