The Mega Millions jackpot soared to $636 million on Tuesday amid a frenzy of ticket purchases, a jump that pushed the prize closer to the $656 million U.S. record set last year. The drawing is tonight, what would you do with all that money if you won?
There have been all kinds of television shows about the ‘curse of big lottery winners,’ or how ‘winning the lottery ruined my life,’ so winning the Mega-Millions could be a blessing or a curse! I recently saw a show where they chronicled lottery winners whose lives were changed dramatically for the BETTER after they won! Most of those folks sought advice from financial experts BEFORE they even cashed the check, and did not really go hog-wild spending all the new-found money either. One guy invested all his money, and has been living and GIVING millions of dollars away each year, using just the interest alone! He still has the entire amount that he initially won in the bank, almost 10 years AFTER his big win!
What’s the first thing you would buy if you won that money?
