    If you ever won the lotto...

    What would you do with it? I am talking about one of those outrageous lottos the 400 million jackpots. I know I would pay off a whole lot of things first and foremost. Then give immediate family and friends money. From there I would get a house and continue my schooling. Not sure I would buy one of those obscenely huge mansions that celebrities have. I see no reason to have a house that big. Not unless you are renting them out like a hotel.

    First two things I would do: Change my phone number and hire a quality financial advisor. Then I would finish school, pay off student debt, buy a modest house, pay off my parents' mortgage, and invest the vast majority of it.

    I would give half of it away, first and foremost. A quarter to my family and a quarter to churches/charities that I believe in.

    With my half, I would buy several ranches around the world to hunt, fish, and farm. Then, I would buy a very large yacht to travel the world. I would also attend the Cordon Bleu culinary school, get a JD, an MD, as well as a PhD in Economics. I would also do whatever my wife dreamed of doing, I would spoil her rotten!

    Exactly, I see no reason to change the way I live my life just because I won the lottery.

    Well ... This would be the plan:




    But, it'd most likely end up like this:

    1) Win the next game.
    2) See goal #1

    Pay off my student loans and car payments. Then bank the lot of it and invest some of it. I would then go travel the world with my girlfriend for a year and figure out what to do with the rest of it when I get back.
