    Default Powerball 475 Million – Dream come true or curse?

    Powerball 475 Million – Dream come true or curse?

    I think I would be so stressed out trying to manage that amount of money.

    I don’t know where I would turn to for advice because I would be suspicious of everyone’s motives.

    I know I am being silly but if I won that amount of money, I wouldn’t have a clue what to do with it other than giving away a substantial amount to family and friends.

    I wouldn't manage it. I'd pay somebody to deal with that stress.

    Agreed, One or two million would be plenty.

    Financial Planner and a good lawyer. I wouldn't claim it publicly and would wait a few months till I had my team claim it

    Pay the Taxes and then put it in the bank. The poor would be poor again in 2 years.

    For active duty personell, would you stay in and be quiet about your money, or get out? I would try to stay in if I could. I would love to have that (ret.) in my resume.

    I would've tried to stay in on for the fact that getting out and doing nothing can be boring.

    I'd stay in since I am so close to 20 anyways. Far as that much money, I read too many stories where family, friends, old acquaintences start suing you for EVERYTHING and for every reason. So yea, get the team together (financial wizard, lawyer) and get all your ducks in a row...try to remain as anonymous as possible and then just enjoy life. I would just make it so after retirmement, I'd disappear from the world.

    You would have to get out with that much money. Would you really put up with getting sent to Korea for a year if you had that much money? No way. Get out and spend the rest of your days traveling all over the world. As long as you aren't an idiot, you could live like a king for the rest of your life without even having to invest any of it.

    Definitely what he said. I have a ton of uncles who are pieces of shit that wouldn't think twice about trying to scam me. I would just pack up and move to Iceland. Never to be heard from again.
