you guys are all wrong..it's fraud. whether its large scale like mortgage fraud, or even stealing lines of credit from extremely large companies, or it's a maddoff style ponzi, it's fraud boys. (relatively) low-risk, and high yield

The only plaintiff's attorney I've ever met had to leave the deposition early because his pilot and jet were waiting on him. I'd say that's a pretty good sign.

 

None of the partners at my law firm own jets...

If you do not have or do not desire to develop marketable skills, then you are clearly a budding politician. Anything else, including crime, would take some amount of skill and work.

I woulld bet he does not own the jet. Probably rents a jet/crew by the hour. Fractional ownership is popular for companies for there executives and most likely the case.

The answer is clearly "management consultant". There is essentially no risk involved, and you essentially get paid big dollars to give people advice that you figuratively pulled out your ass, or is obvious.

+1 but the road to get a gig is obnoxious and high pressure.

Well, you could sell your organs. Then invest the money in the stock market.

I would suggest having very rich, guilt-ridden parents. If you are starting from scratch, even the most dishonorable professions will require a fair amount of effort to make top dollar.

Yeah, you'll need to put in effort somewhere along the line.

 

My advice is to bust your ass building up some sort of business that you can eventually automate once you're seeing consistent profits. That takes most of the labor out of your hands after you get off the ground.

  • leverage that by 100 million by borrowing from the Fed Res. at negative, 1%, or 0% interest
  • invest the 110 million
  • take a 15% plus 500,000 "administrative fee."

You think it's just that easy? Who the hell would loan 10M without a plan, good idea, good investment to a stranger? Not even relatives who has money will loan you this kind of cash. And if he don't have the brains he can't make any of this. There is no way to be rich if you don't work hard.

 

Unless you don't apply for the Kardashians (and trust me behind all those tv-screens, they work hard)
