If you only had $10 left to your name, what would you spend it on?
Would you splurge on a guilty pleasure, make a sensible investment to try and grow the money, or spend it on a loved one?
These are just some of the things seven Australian executives said they would do with their last ten bucks.
Here are some of the other things they would spent the cash on.
Janine Allis, founder of Boost Juice and Retail Zoo
“I am very practical so I would spend my last $10 on flour, eggs and milk. So that I can make scones or bread to make the $10 go as far as I could. Or chocolate covered liquorice.”
Libby Roy VP and MD of PayPal Australia
“As an eternal optimist I would head for the casino with my last $10, put in black and cross my fingers that it came up trumps.”
Shelly Park, chief executive of the Australian Red Cross Blood Service
“Sharing a coffee with my family (there’s a few of us so we would have to share coffees).”
Stephen Cornelissen, CEO of Mercy Health Group
“I would take a train into the Melbourne CBD and walk along the Yarra River. I find there is no better way to clear your head, reflect and refresh.”
John Karagounis, CEO of The CEO Circle
“I would spend my last $10 calling those closest to me.”
Michael Derin, CEO of Azure Group
“Invest in a crowd-funded start up.”
Chris Dutton, CEO of The CEO Magazine
“If I had achieved everything I wanted to in life, I’d put it on England to win the World Cup at football (not soccer). You never know when a miracle will happen.”
The executives listed are judges in the upcoming The Executive of the Year Awards, hosted by The CEO Magazine. Applications for the awards close on Friday, July 14 2017. See below here for more information.
