December 12 1980, IPO of Apple ...


You wouldn't even need to go back that far....just set the time machine back to the mid 90's when Apple was close to bankruptcy when you could get shares for under $10 bucks.

I'd go back in time just a few months ago to win the billion dollar powerball jackpot. Then I'd be me, right now, with a billion dollars.

1998. Tell my mom to go get a hysterectomy immediately so she doesn’t get the ovarian cancer that eventually kills her in a few years. Invest everything I have in 4Kids when Pokemon was becoming a craze, sell when the stock price hits 90 or so, then wait for the dot com bust and invest in Amazon and Apple. Continue life as normal while keeping in mind when to invest in various companies over the years to give myself a comfortable financial future so I can pick and choose what I want to do professionally without needing to stress about keeping a steady paycheck at all times. Of course, I don’t have kids so going back that far in time doesn’t affect me as it would many other people who probably don’t want to risk losing them. As a bonus, I’d get to enjoy the Kobe’s Laker championship runs all over again.

February 1996.

The following 10 years were pretty much a mess. Gladly take those back as a mulligan.

Ted, I do believe you've cracked the code here.

1981. A big transitional year for me. Got dumped. Broke up the band. Traveled the country for 3 months. Came back and went to work in an office on Wilshire Blvd. Met my future wife...

Come to think of it, maybe not.
