What I would do if I won the lottery
The Power ball is 430 million so far. It will go higher. Have you or will you buy a ticket(s)? Is your workplace pooling money to buy tickets? I'm not sure I will even buy tickets? There is more to the story.
The real story is, what's important to you? What I am getting at isn't what we would do if we won the lottery, but really, If we were able to help others, would we and how?
Yes, I would spend money on myself. Pay off my debt. Invest in real estate some how.? I would pick a charity that is dear to me. I would establish a foundation to manage the majority of the funds to help charities and to also grow what I have available. The best comparison I could use is like in the bible, when Jesus fed thousands with a few fish and loaves of bread. Make sense?
