I'd put most of it in the bank and live off the interest it makes. So yeah I'd help myself first.

First of all I'll donate some of that money to charity. Then I will invest 50 percent of that money. I will prefer stock market or the bank account. And ret of the money I will spend for my self and for my family. I will buy a big apartment. It would be better if I have a "Dodge Viper" in my garage. Aaahh...!! What will be the life.

If you got rich today I wouldn't recommend putting money into the stock market. You never know what might crash next.

Thanx Nuclearrabit for your kind suggession. I am a risk taker in that stock. I have a big amount invested in the stock market. My journey in the stock market is not sweet all the time. but I have earned much money from the stock. money is like a sweet. If someone tastes this sweet, then he is never statisfied with it and wants more and more.

I want to say I would help others but we all know if I said that it would be a lie, the money of course would help myself as well along with struggling family members and a charity as well. I would not spend it all or give it all away, after all I have to plan for my future as well right?

I would pay off my house and get a new car but other than that I would use my money normally. I would give more to charities and help people I knew were in need too.So I guess I would be doing both.

I personally do not believe that money is the most important thing in the world. That being said, if I told you that it would not be nice to have a lot of money, I would be lying to you. I am a 34 year old man with a boy of 2 years, and a girl of 5 years. My wife and I have been married for 9 years. I believe that in order to earn your riches it helps to have doors. I am a believer of the saying, its not what you know its who you know. Lets face it, some people have more opportunities than others. This is where the door theory comes in. For example, my dad is 70 years old, a Veteran, and has worked very hard for other people all his life. He still works a full time job to make ends meet. Although he has met a lot of people in his 70 year life span, including a few millionaires. He has never asked anyone for monetary help. He does not believe that anyone owes him anything, and they don,t. No one except for me, that is. Many fathers use their relationships to open doors for their children , but my dad is not one of them. He would never ask anyone for anything. He is truly a great man! Who deserves much more than he has! If I won the lottery, or came into riches some other way. I would make a better life for my family, including my dad. If I was rich enough to do so, I would help many others also!

I don't have any debts and everything that I might want to buy if I had more money only comes to about a couple of thousand dollars, so I don't need it for myself. I'd help my son DIL pay off their debts, invest in my sister's business, and start an eductional foundation. If there was anything left, I'd put it in some kind of safe investment.

I would pay off all my debt, then put the rest in the bank. I would use some of what was left to go visit my family for about a month though...

I'd probably give 15% to charity 60% to my family 5% to church and 20% for myself. It depends though how much rich you're gonna get because if you reach about a million dollars then this one applies but then again it would vary with regards to the price. I'd probably also try and get myself a business and I'd probably drop college. I really would like to get rich. Who wouldn't? My priority for the money is my family, Charity and me. That's actually how I plan it but, I would give money to church also or to my old school to help the adopted community. Before asking us though, what would you do??

Hi, I would use the money to start my internet business. I have a lot of ideas to make money from internet but I am lack of money. So, if I have the chance, I will make sure my dream come true. Then, I will donate some money to help those poor people.

i would buy myself a nice house and set aside a sum of money for my son's future. that is more important than anything else. other than that, i do not think any spending would results in increase in net assets aprt from buying properties. that why people who get rich easily is likely to lose it as quickly as well.
