    Would you risk it all?

    Howdy Everyone,

    Would you bet your entire last years income for a 1/10 chance to multiple it by 100x?

    Would you risk it all?

    Thanks for Reading,

    Tera

    Re: Would you risk it all?

    Hey there Tera!

    I would not risk it all! I am a practical decision maker and 1/10 is not good enough odds for me to risk it. I would probably do it if it were 1/2 odds, but nothing more than that! I would just be terrible to lose a years income so the risk isn't worth it. I might also consider it if it were a weeks income for 1/10 odds but a year is too much.

    Have a great day!

    Hi Tera Ricshon,

    I would do it because I do not have much to lose right now compared to if I were older and had to pay my own bills or had kids.

    If I were rich, I probably would take the risk still because I would have the skills, knowledge, wisdom, and network to support me if I lose it all. I am confident I would win. :)

    Cheers!

    Hi Tera,

    I'm not that risky!

    The other night I went to a Kodak film screening and before the show they had everyone play heads or tails. Everyone who played put in $10 and they flipped a coin several times. Every time they flipped the coin it weeded out more and more folks playing. And in the end, a women brought home a few hundred bucks!!

    I wasn't even risky enough to play heads or tails for 10 bucks. And it was a 50% chance of winning. No way you'd catch me betting thousands for a tenth of a chance.

    Great question!!

    Hey Tera!

    Eek no way! I wish I was the type of person who could easily do these types of risky things, but I can't risk losing my entire salary for one year.

    Thanks!

    Tera,

    I would not take the risk! 1/10 for me seems very low, even for such a high reward. I would rather work and earn the money than take it by chance! I have never been one for gambling or risking, especially money because I am very conservative with finances. Intriguing post!

    Thanks for reading!

    Re: Would you risk it all?

    Uh, no. I've worked too hard to lose it all in a crap shoot. If I had little to lose, then yes but no, doesn't seem like a good bet. Don't do it if you were contemplating it. All or nothing? Nooooo.

    Re: Would you risk it all?

    Lol nah not at all. That's like basically going gambling with a huge buttload amount of money lol. I think I'm good. I like to be in control of my finances and because it's already so hard to earn every buck I don't want to just lose it all in a split of second by risking it like this x) It sounds tempting though not going to lie. But my chances of winning would have to be higher than just 10% to convince me to risk it all XD

    Have a good one!

    Re: Would you risk it all?

    Hey Tera!

    I ABSOLUTELY WILL!!!LOL...Seeing as I just started a part time job last November I wouldn't be risking a whole lot, so I can safely say YES...Take it all!!! Now if I worked an entire year I would be like everyone else and say NO! I'm not a gambler with hard earned money, but I would spend a $1 or 2 to play the Lotto.

    Have a great day!

    -Thankful
