I am brazikian monkey and for the last days I've been thinking about what I am going to do with my bonus. I'm already in my third year working but have changed jobs in the last two, so this will be my first real bonus.
For my country, I will earn something about 30 - 40 K and i realized that if I just invest my bonus not using at least a part of it for something, I would not feel I had really earned it.
I don't want a new car.
For what I get on fixed salary I am already able to do some nice travels during my vacations.
I can just buy some stuff but there is anything big in my plans right now.
I may keep it to help me on mba but as I will already get a big lending to pay that will last 20 years, I don't se much sense.
I could use as a part for buying a house, but is not one my priorities right now.
So, what do you normally do with bonuses? What do u think I should do with mine?
I am thinking about using about 20% of it to start some service for community and use a part of it to help me in mba preparation (booms, consultants, etc).
Investing in a business is discarded too.
