Imagine winning an island resort and running it. The US$49 for the explorer pack gets you not only a chance to win on 26-July, but also an image by Matt Shepherd. As they say, the more you buy the more your chances of winning!
But what exactly is the deal to win the resort?
You will win not one, but two businesses. The resort with 16 rooms comes with a range of facilities. Then there is the scuba diving business. To top that off, the winners will have US$10,000 in the businesses’ bank account.Sort of like the working capital that you’d need to keep the restaurant stocked up or the equipment maintained etc…
Sounds easy right? Just buy the raffle ticket.
For one, you’ll need to have a foreign investment permit from the Federated States of Micronesia before the ownership can be transferred to you. You probably need to find out more about taxes and dues too, as a foreign business owner. But the promise is one of being able to run the resort with able hands already on deck for the last 15 years! Sounds too good to be true? Is this a very elaborate scam?
Guess what? The resort is the result of hard work by a pair of YOLOing couple from more than 20 years ago! That proves without a doubt that what the Millenials appear to be searching for is nothing new! It has always been in the blood of the young to yearn for something out of the ordinary.
History may not repeat, but they surely seem to rhyme.
