What would you do with $10,000?

Hi
Hope everyone is doing well.

The question pertains to the most optimal use of initial funds for a start-up on Day 1.

Finally able to focus some on a new start-up I believe has merit. Obviously, this idea will take more than the $10K to get started but looking for different technical perspectives on the optimal way to start. Consider the money initial seed funding as it were.

Ideally I would like to have a beta/demo/video something to show other (thus making it real) so they can begin to see the vision for themselves. 

Would you start with wireframing? Use something like justinmind.com

Having someone do the wireframing, what would be a reasonable range of hourly charge for someone domestically? (Even though I have used overseas outsourcing, I believe it to be best utilized for specific functions)

Better off starting with a completely non-technical video? (My limited intelligence has pretty much guaranteed that I will not be breaking new ground technically lol)

Really looking for some insightful perspective to consider as well as any recommendations. 

In case it is space dependent, consider it  music-social space.

Thanks for any feedback.
Rich
