#1 Id hook my family up right away..Then tell them they are on thier own for cash. Maybe $5mil per household.
#2 Pay off my debt
(1 and 2 would take about 30 minutes)
#3 Quit my job, but I would give two weeks notice. I really want my bosses, and my bosses bosses, and thier bosses bosses, to see me walking around
with a huge smile on my face for a few weeks. Id make sure to park my brand new Range Rover Sport in thier parking spots a few times by
#4 I would have one hell of a shopping weekend with my family. Nothing big just yet, just some personal items we have always wanted. I.e. nice
watch, jewelry for my wife, clothes, etc.
#5 Build a new home. Nothing stupid, just something nice and roomy with a huge yard. Id make it look like a "normal" home, but it would be built
like fort knox. Want my family safe...
#6 Then I would start splurging on the big stuff. Few more cars (3-4), 25' Whaler Outrage rigged for fishing, Nice top of the line home theater and
play room, couple of tricked out Voodoo Omens (if you dont know what those are, then it wont matter what they are), nice furnishings for the house,
full workshop ready to build anything, etc. Basically just spoil the heck out of ourselves for a frick'in change! Work too damn hard for not a
whole lot right now, we deserve it...
#7 Even though we are insanely rich, Id still put away some college money and a retirement fund. You never know...
#8 Find some CONSERVATIVE investements that have a low yield but are very, very safe. After all, I would already be rich as sin, just want to make
enough to not touch my principal and live comfortably on the interest. Wouldnt be very tough with that kind of scratch...no need for risky stuff.
#9 I would set up an organization and fund. Hire a small group of people who would SECRETLY identify poor families with kids who want to go to
college but cannot afford it. Set up some criteria and such of course. And then without the student or family having any idea in advance, arrange to
have 100% of all tuition and expenses paid for that student, full ride. Even living expenses, they are on thier own for beer money and cover charges
#10 Randomly and anonymously go into restaurants and pick up the entire tab for a couple of hours.
#11 Have fun and live happily ever after.
