What is Money?
According to LanreOlusola
Money is NOT CASH. Money is VALUE!
Real money is invisible. It is the output of a productive mind.
Money is an exchange for solving problems.
What problems were you born to solve?
Who has a problem you’re created to solve?
Where are they?
How best can you their problems?
The more problem you solve, the more money you attract.
Find that thing you’re super passionate about, develop your talents, add value to people’s lives and deliberately use it to create value for yourself.

Maybe take a business course in Harvard.

Wonderfull Abuah ●Trip my folks.

Samuel Oluwadamilare I want to empower youths with opportunities
Nancy Alika If money wasn’t an issue i wld build schools with state of the art instructional materials, well paid teachers, broad curriculum (our school curriculum doesn’t teach our kids to be entrepreneurs, how to make money, biz owners for instance). I wld also build fitness centers to help people stay healthy and maintain good lifestyles.
Anthony Egbujua If money was not a problem, I will attend Harvard Business school from the comfort of my home/office. I will become John Maxwell certified coach, trainer and communicator by August 2016. I will become the bigest farmer of African origin to export food to majority of sub-sahara African countries.

Chidimma Chime If money was not an issue….I will travel around the world
John Olayisade I will freely direct my most of my energies to supporting/championing causes that help people live meaningful and purposeful lives.
Ayo Oyewumi This is a why question actually masked as a what. Little wonder it’s gaining so much traction. I’ll do the most sensible thing. Create more traction around my purpose. Build educational systems that transcend the whole universe. Build a universal school..!
Joseph Ifeoluwa NewmanI would quit my company and head over to a remote village as a missionary
Nnenna Ewa I will build the largest Productivity Institute
Olufukeji Ejimi Adegbeye1. I’d build private financial markets trading floors in all 36 states of Nigeria where people interested in learning how to trade the financial markets ( FX, Bonds, Commodities & Global Equities) can come and learn by watching professional traders & investors trade the markets everyday. It will also serve as a venue where passive investors can come and hire independent analysts and traders to consult for their personal portfolios. This will rapidly accelerate the financial intelligence learning curve of young, upwardly mobile Nigerians. I will then franchise these floors across Africa.
2. I’d build a farm and cattle/equestrian ranch by the lakeside in Jos where terminally ill patients and their family members can come and spend their last days in a serene environment, eat organic & healthy food, listen to the word of God and journal their lives. Each patient will plant a garden and nurture it. There will be lovely parks and nurses to help them. I’ll do this in honor of my late mother who died of cancer.
3. I’d invest massively in the establishment of agricultural and mining/extraction as well as technology incubator hubs to kickstart the export of Nigerian agricultural commodities and precious mineral resources.
I’ll need about $5million USD to start these projects and I should be completely invested in it in about 9 years time
As for me: I would take my mum round the world
