Willy Wonka’s $300 million dollar golden ticket

What would you do with $300 million dollars?  I cannot believe how big the Mega Millions jackpot has ballooned to.  That’s a lot of clams.

It’s hard to even fathom that amount.

Now what?!

Lottery winners famously go broke because they didn’t earn the windfall.  If they have bad financial habits, they will still have them.  Those poor habits will be multiplied by about three hundred million percent.

So I ask again, what would you do?

    I would get a lawyer, give a cut to my immediate family (no more after that) and then take a nice long vacation. It’s hard to imagine.

    Once again I didn’t win. Looks like I’ll keep blogging. 🙂

    I used to wish I’d WIN the lottery. Then one day I decided I would rather BE the lottery. Amazing how my life has changed since then. If you wanna win, you gotta play. Now I play every day! P.S I like the way Reiter Thinks.

    I only play for entertainment purposes… once it gets over $200 million I figure I’ll drop $10. So I play it only a few times a year. I don’t look at it any different than buying raffle tickets at a state fair. I don’t have much chance to win but what the heck.

    I am my own lottery. It’s just going to take more time and effort to build. But in the end I’ll appreciate my success more. Glad you like the blog. (I adjusted the publish time to 9:30am so you should see it soon.)
