If you were given 10 million dollars of cash, let say at the age of 15, would that be enough for a lifetime? What is your opinion? How will you spend the money?

Ten million dollars would be way more than I would need. Simply putting the majority of it in simple money market accounts would earn enough interest per year that I would never have to worry. Even if I went out and blew a bunch on stupid things it would be more than enough. When I think about how much I make now I am pretty sure I am not even going to make 1/3 of that in my lifetime, before taxes.

10 million is more than enough to live a nice life if handled properly with a variety of investments and intelligent usage. That said, I would likely still work on things I like to do, make some extra money and use a few million for fun.

Heck if its handled right 1 tenth that would be enough. With 10 mil I'd pay off my house buy a new car, buy my moms house put my kids through college. Go back to college myself. Put the rest in trust funds for my kids.
