What would you do if you won a lottery of $10 million dollars? I know what I would do. The first thing I would do is give everyone in my family (my brothers and sisters and nices and nephews and my mom) a share of it. I would make sure that none of them have a mortage anymore and they could take it easier. Then I would give my two kids $1 million dollars each. Then I would give my husband $1 million dollars and divorce him. Then I would move to Calgary and buy myself a very nice home and have my 24 year old daughter live with me, if she wanted to. Then I would travel. I would go all over the world and see everything, up to now, that I have only dreamt of. I would never work again and I think not have to work the internet anymore to make money. So please share, what would you do with all that money?

I would first put pay for all four of my childrens college scholarships up to a masters degree. I would then have my dream home built from the ground up on 25 acres of land I would own high up in the hills. Then I would do some traveling but honestly I would have to work doing something. I would go crazy if I didn't have something to do every day. Yes, I know will all that money I could find plenty to do but I really would keep at least a part time job.

I would give some of them to my parents, as a share of it. and save some for my own. the rest ... I will seek for any charities that really distribute donations to those who are in need, especially for the kids all around the world that want to go to school but their parents couldn't afford it.

First I would give 100,000 dollars to 10 of my friends... Second I would finance my personal rock band and create a few musical albums, for creative reasons not financial... Third I would travel and read as many novels, watch as many films, and enjoy as many days, as I possibly can... Also, I would purchase court side tickets to the lakers and take my little brother so that he can see his favorite player Kobe Bryant...

After I recovered from my heart attack ~ I would give my mom, dad, and brother each some money. I would send some money to my hubby's dad. Then I would put some in trust funds for my kids. Probably a million in each (have 2 kids), would buy myself a nice home and then travel the world. I would put some in the bank as well to collect the interest. I am not lucky enough to win $100 though so I dont have to worry about winning anything bigger, but its sure nice to dream :)

What would I do if I won a lottery of $ 10 million dollars? Well, first I would pay off all my debts. Tell the credit card companies to kiss my butt, lol. I would then go out and buy my nephew a lot better car than the one he has now along with my niece. Then I would take my daughter's and my sister's little girl on a major shopping spree and have fun doing it. My parents doesn't really have any debts, and my dad would kick my butt if I gave him money, so I would have to find away to give him the money he leant me these past years. That way I don't have to worry about him being mad at me, lol. I would make sure that my husband's parents are taken care of, that his parents wouldn't have to work again unless they wanted to. I would put the rest in a money making account, so it would build over the years so my kids could go to the college of there choice, and my husband and I could retire and not have to worry about anything.

What would I do if I won a lottery of $10 million dollars? Hmm..that's a pretty big enough money, huh?(LOL!)well, first is am gonna give $1 million each to my dad, mom, my brother and my sister so that gives me $6M left. I'd give $2 million to charities here in my country. $2M will be for my worthy investments. The remaining $2M?I'd buy a house and lot and I will spend time to travel around the world with loved-ones.

After taxes, I'd probably take the $5 million (or less) and pay off my bills and my immediate family's. I'd take the rest of the 4+M and invest 2 million in retirement funds. The rest, I'd start a couple of foundations to take care of people--investments that wouldn't lose principal but let the interest administer to children who needs education and love in order to succeed. Maybe start an orphanage for children whose parents don't really want them so they can have a loving family...staffed by people who really love children and can devote themselves to them, with schooling and nurturing so they don't follow in their parents' footsteps. Food banks with administrators who really believe in the cause and won't waste the funds. Things like that. Of course, that would keep me busy watching over them and supervising at a no-salary position. The best thing about it would be that I could do some good, be independent and be able to tell the court that I don't want my ex's spousal support and never have to have anything to do with him ever again. So, I guess my philanthropy would ultimately be selfish.

I would first pay off my bills. Buy my dream home and a new car. I would then pay off all the bills that my mom has or any of my sisters and probably give them some money. I would give some to my church and some other charities. Save some for my future children and their education and my retirement. Probably put it in CDs or a money market account. Travel a little bit. And start up a real estate business...I would make sure that I have enough for the taxes.

I would give some to each of my brothers and sister. I would set up a trust fund for each of my two children. I would buy a nice house and take a exotic vacation with my husband and boys. I would get a financial advisor and let them figure out how I could live off the interest. Then I would explore opening a business for myself doing something I love.

I think it's easy to think what I am going to do if I win big amount. First, I will take my family to have a great feast together. I think our culture is to enjoy nice food. Besides, I will buy nice gifts for them. I will also deposit some money for future. And the rest may be invested and hopefully I can earn more from it.

I would keep some of it and invest the rest. From the amount I keep, my family would get some, and because 10 million will not last forever, I will get into one of the online programs like Reverse Funnel System or EDC Road map to Riches. I would also travel to a few places such as Japan, and maybe I would go to Egypt to see the Sphinx and Pyramids.

Yes, this is always a fun game! I'd pay off our mortgage for sure! I'd get a new car. Mine is a 1989 model. I'd pay off my 2 kids' debts and give our son some money for the grandkids' schooling. I'd give a lot to church or my friends, The Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ...a community of nuns who have been my friends since 1990 and who pray for me and my family all of the time. Then, I could quit my job if I wanted and do whatever I wanted to do. Hmmm...I've always worked. Don't know exactly what I would do if I wasn't working! LOL

$10 million? Well, definitely I'd buy myself a big house by the ocean that has always been my dream. What I would love to do is to be able to have a big Mylot convention pay for all my dear friends to meet up in a central place, fly them over and have one week of partying, celebrating and fun! I would love to see some of my sisters on Mylot we'd have a ball! There would be a massive cake in the shape of a wolf and everyone would have to dress up in fur (fake fur don't worry animal lovers!) A big swimming pool because I'm a water baby at heart and hopefully where we can all sit outside and watch the beautiful sunset. That would be my wish.
