If I Won the Lottery...Here's What I Would Do

A few friends and I discussed a hypothetical, just for fun, about winning the lottery and what we would do with the money. If I won, I start two businesses. I would invest in art, and become a painter again like I once was. It would be for fun mainly because I know that art doesn't sell that well anymore. I would invest in houses that need repairs, remodel them and resell them or put them up for rent. I would start a daycare with an on-call emergency child care line. I would save money for my daughter, just in case...and I would donate the rest to charity, help a few people get on their feet and give the opportunity of a chance to make a change in their lives. If you ever won the lottery what would you do with the money?

First I'd find a little bit of financial security, followed by starting my own business, and last but not last I think I want to help other people.

That sounds nice! What kind of business would you want to start?

@AnnaAutopsy I'd either be a natural bath and body, or allergen free food, not sure yet. Only because I've been down the line of not being able to eat something or use something like a lotion because they had some kind of allergens in it.

@polyxena That is really interesting, not a lot of people really think about things like that.

I will definitely put up businesses. We have a vacant lot near our town hall and I've been wanting a convenience store on that for a long time. Also franchise some food cart businesses. Put some money in banks, give some to charity, get nice insurance plans for my family. Travel with my family around the world. Get a new house and lot and a new car.

I suppose philanthropic endeavors would be a good way to spend it as well as becoming entrepreneurial but if I won, I would pay back all those that have helped me and let mom enjoy life FULLY again, without having to worry if the next paycheck(s) will cover everything
