Not much. That’s really not much money, you know. Probably invest half of it. I would purchase property and build an independant laboratory. I would buy materials to invent with. With the money I have, I could patent other ideas I have, and make even more money! 10 million… well I’d need more money for my dreams so from there, start flipping real estate… land and houses, apartment buildings and condos… and if all goes as planned eventually be able to build hotels, and hopefully celebrities will buy a hotel of their own and each hotel have it’s own owner’s touch to it… after the hotel makes back it’s money, all profits are donated to help certain communities and charities… main foyer could be timeline photos of the people helped by staying in the hotel. I’d definately wanna stay in a hotel like that, not only am I helping others, I’m staying in a wicked hotel furnished by my favorite celeb… definately stay in the Villa 🙂 Of course some of that money I’d blow of the get go, may have to wait a bit for some things though depending on how far I’d jump into that real estate as stated above… I’d wipe out the debt of myself and loved ones, buy myself and loved ones a house/car (should be pretty reasonably-priced for the houses there getting into real estate and all), nice house on the lake, fire pit outside, nice yard, out of the city somewhere I can jump on my 4-wheeler and go visit a neighbour, a garage of course for my beautiful 1970 mach 1 mustang i’d be purchasing or convincing my father to rebuild it for me whichever’s easier, toys!!! (ski-doo, 4-wheeler, motorcycle, maybe a boat or ski-doo), at least one good vacation definately, Australia. I am female and all, so I guess I should go clothes shopping or something… meh I’ll just pay a friend with their own shopping spree who knows my style to do it for me, I hate shopping. Can’t forget about donating to my workplace(a not-for-profit organization, healthcare-related) which is a good cause in itself. And one more just for me, train my ass off and go outdoor rock-climbing on a crazy mountain 🙂 Talk about big dreams lol And not really investing any if real-estate isn’t concidered investing 🙂 I’d also quit my part-time job and stop selling make-up products on the side, I’d like to still keep my full-time job but may think about dropping down to part-time or casual… take a LOA or something as I would assume I’d be fairly busy with other things… wow wouldn’t that be something, I feel strange enough because I’m on my 7th day of vacation from all jobs, a real vacation out of my province, yup definately’d be taking some time off and dropping a couple jobs 😀 Fix up my grandparents old Farmyard. Restore an old tractor with my dad. Go mudding with my buddies. Drink a hell of a lot of beer. Live the rest of my life with no worries. 🙂 Give it to God, help my wife get her dream started for a home for pregnant teens who want a better life.
