I am wondering if anyone has any ideas as to what they would do (business-wise) if they had the money to do it. What business would you strive for that would bring back what you put in? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated and new ideas are always fun to share!
I would purchase a large portion of land adjacent to the Great Lakes and open a bottling plant, taking the water for free and charging 8$ a gallon to customers who originally owned the water. What? Nestle already did that? Oh, well then... I guess I would experiment with a concept for super-long range automobiles (150+mpg) through true vapor-gas technology depressed by companies like Shell while also building potential concepts of a perpetual motion motor.

I would love to invest in a company that would hack into politicians computer systems and reveal all of their emails, internet viewing, phone calls and bank statements...just for fun I would post it for all to see.
I'd buy a house on some waterfront property (ocean or river) and have a few small cottages built for people to vacation in. We've been staying in the same place in the Florida Keys for years and the people who own it and live there seem to be doing great. It would probably be in the St. Augustine area which is near me.

I would say Realestate would be a good bet, but its a 5 - 10 year wait on return but will probably double your investment. Now is the time to do it before its starts climbing back up again.. And Gold is always a good investment..
If I had big money I would buy a huge yacht and charter it out. Some of the bigger one's 150+ feet bring in 100-200k a week. Pretty decent return for a $25 million dollar yacht. Plus I could go in and have a blast myself.
Another plan would be to invest in fast food restaurant chains. They are ALWAYS going to make money, period! Cant go wrong with owning a couple dozen McDonalds.
