If Money Were No Object, Where Would You Work?

Jason English

Every Friday, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. Last month, Jon Wertheim of Sports Illustrated wrote about former Ameritrade CEO Joe Moglia, a mega millionaire who is currently working as an unpaid assistant coach for the University of Nebraska's football team. If money were no object—let's say, like Moglia, you made $21 million in 2008 and probably had hundreds of millions more in the bank—where would you work?

2. Tell us about a time you were in on the ground floor for something that became crazy popular—an artist, a technology, a designer, a business or stock, etc. Once the masses came around, did that dampen your enthusiasm?

3. If someone were coming to your current town for one day and wanted to get the full local experience, what would you tell them to do? (I realize not everyone loves where they live, so the full local experience doesn't have to be positive.)

4. Every few months I ask the same question and you always have great suggestions. What are you currently reading?

5. Forgive me for getting all market research-y, but I was hoping you could answer one extra question this week. Where did you first hear about mental_floss? Just curious. Have a great weekend!
