ADS Chat 010: What Would You Do with $100 Million in the Bank? Sister Chat with Charleigh Rocks
23 May 2018

Today’s BIG question: what would you do if you had $100M in the bank? (Of course, after all your debt is paid, you bought every ridiculous material thing you can, etc. – what does your day-to-day life look like after all of that?). Challenge for you: SHARE this video – we’re giving away a copy of the book that inspired this question – The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss (which we LOVE!!). Share this by Friday and YOU could win one of two books. The others are for those who share on YouTube (an entirely different convo over there). Cheers and thanks for chiming in! (PS – cheers to Nicole whose business – Charleigh Rocks – is now 3 years old (yaaay!!) and also happy bday to our dad!!) xoxo
