I’d get it all in cash, put the money in a briefcase, then go to an unsavory strip club where I would then advertise that I had a honkin’ great load of cash in my briefcase and see which stripper would go home with me.
And then I would act surprised when her boyfriend shows up, beats me up, and they both run off with my money.
pay student loans/ vehicle loan off
give my parents a comfortable amount of money
travel a bit
invest…in something. ha.
give money to help build a new boxing club : ours is pretty old,andrundown: it leaks when it rains
help out friends/family
Sell my house and buy land where I would create my husbands dream business of owning a karting track in combination with my dream of eventualy having a club on the same property, club house, pool, tennis courts, maybe a driving range? I like the idea of having an inn for people to spend the weekend. We would have corporate events, birthday parties. Associationa and clubs such as Porsche Club of America, Mercedes, and BMW could have events there. The money would not cover building everything at once, but it would get us started on the land, track, and main garage.
I would put it all in a 501c foundation, meaning other people could make tax exempt contributions, then hire my entire family to work for the foundation by reading grant requests and choosing worthy recipients. With careful management, this could provide several generations of family members with guaranteed jobs.
Well, we’d pay off our home loan, maybe get a new car, buy a couple of random thingies that we need for the house, put some aside for our next holiday away, and maybe buy another house to rent out, and probably put some aside which we’ll use to open another business. ($1million is a lot more money in South Africa! Hehe…..)
everyone says pay off debts. classic. After i paid off mine I would…buy alot of booze..and if i managed not to blow the rest on things like the worlds largest paperclip collection, A house..out in the woods, away..you know what i mean?.. and save enough money to have groceries and stuff delivered to me. And that’s it..I’d grow old, my only friend the grocery guy, stare at the computer screen till i get cataracs..then use my new brail keyboard to download audio books.
