Back in the day, I had to really work exploiting the under-privileged – quite often past 6 O’Clock! And for what? Just for an opportunity to buy my own private jet, yacht, Ferrari or my own barrel of Jack Daniel’s …
But now, you don’t even need to own your own island to be appear rich. You can live like a king with fractional ownership.
For a percentage of what you would pay to buy, why not just own a portion of it? Depending on the item and the program, you get a set number of hours/days of usage or you buy points to spread around … and in most cases, you get to switch around cars, jets, yachts, etc …
Who doesn’t need to get away … by sea?
By land but only very, very fast?
But it isn’t just the obvious things … for instance, that Van Gogh you bought for $90 million, after 3 months, who isn’t bored of it? Why not just fractionally own Art?
Of course, you can alsways take over a Maserati lease from some schlub who just lost his shirt when he shorted APPL.
Of course, I don’t need all that to live the perfect life, after all, I have this now.
