Step 1. Give up work

Step 2. Give loved ones a bit

Step 3. Buy a cottage in the countryside or near the seaside (with my boyfriend)

Money freaks me out more than a little bit. I would not deal well with a sudden influx of a large amount of money. Nope.

First off, save $2.4 million for college, $4 for starting my own country, and the rest for paying bills, buying a car, taxes, etc.

my dream, if to live my life out on my own, would be to buy an a-frame cabin in a mountain town community and live out the rest of my life there studying in tranquility alongside a traditional siamese cat in nature. the base floor area would be made into a japanese inspired mini dojo, the main floor would be where the front door, kitchen, bath and small study were, and the loft would my sleep area until too old to use stairs... but if anything like my grandpa upon reaching that age, my study chair would just become my bed. as for the rest of the money, it’d just be put aside for groceries, supplies, replacing worn clothing, cab rides, cellphone bills, utilities, insurances, taxes, home maintenance, and unexpected things like home repairs, veterinary, medical, dental bills, and possibly the hiring of help of an aid in old age... that, and the costs for handling my cremation and ashes upon death.

I'd donate eight million to worthy charities in hopes of making the world a better place.

The other two million I'd blow on booze and whores!

1. Try to return it, if it was lost or stolen.
2. Give 10% each to my church, elementary, and high school.
3. Pay taxes on the $10million.
4. Pay off my student loans.
5. Repay my parents and sister for supporting me financially recently.
6. Pay for someone to teach me how to become independent.
7. Invest the rest of it.

I couldn't possibly spend all that money.
I would donate some of it to build low income housing for homeless people.

It would be a terrible curse. I'm glad this isn't happening.

1. Build a relatively small soundproof concrete bunker like house into the side of a hill or cliff. Since I would probably lose my subsidized housing. I would budget about a million dollars or less for the land and construction of the house.

2. I would invest the rest of the money, and live off the interest. Which would probably still be a lot more then I need. So I would give away the extra to anyone who truly needed it. I would not give any of it to ripoff charities.

I'd use some to pay for my college education, help my mom fix up our house, buy my dad a house and help him with his dream business, and buy my aunt a new car. With the rest, I would donate it to the Humane Association and ASPCA to help animals.

A good chunk of it (at least $5 million) would be donated to charity. Probably St. Jude, Shriners Hospitals, and/or Children's Miracle Network.
Another 20-25% ($2-2.5 million) would be saved.
This would leave around $2,500,000. This would be used to buy a home (preferably something with a lot of open land), a couple of new cars (one for me, the other for relatives), an RV, clothes, furniture, etc. I would also buy a cabin somewhere in the mountains for the occasional summertime visit. I would also help my grandmother out with renovating her house, buying her a new truck for her farm, etc.

Well, the IRS would probably be expecting like $4m of it, so I guess talking to a tax lawyer or accountant would be step 1!

After that, pay off my debts, buy a new car and a decent house. I don't need anything fancy, but both my car and where I live are both pretty run down. Buy some new stuff & go on a couple overseas vacations. I could do all that for $500k.

My fiance & I have our own business, and while I love it and wouldn't want to close it and just lie on the beach all day, I'd hire more help so we could both work a lot less and have less stress.

Then, I'd invest a few million so I'd have money to live on the rest of my life & retire on.

After all that, I'd still have a couple million left. I'd donate that to some different causes and charities.

Q) What would you do with $10 million?

A) I'd have it converted into Pounds Sterling, then I'd spend the lot.
