After calling the necessary professionals (lawyers, accountants.) I would make sure the kids in my life had an education, and take it from there.

When the dust settles, spend money changing lives, including animal lives.  I would throw enough money at Candice A. Donofrio to convince her to run my no kill shelter foundation to save animal lives.  I would love the opportunity to do "little" things for anyone who needs a little help - single parent, bald tires?  Pay for new tires.  Spread it around as much as possible and help, even in small ways, as well as in the big ways.

I don't believe money can create problems.  

I believe people and situations can create money problems.

It's all about proper planning.

pay off my debt and that of my immediate family.  Then I'd give some extended family some help and set up a few charities.  I'd immediately work toward getting some veterans off the street and employed and medical help. I'd also give some to a few friends.

Help as many family and friends as possible. Give to some smaller charities that are in need of funds, that could do so much more for the community with a generous donation. Selfish buys-Finish our outdoor living space at our lake house to the point its way over the top! Probably buy my husband a fun car....or island? And go shopping, in Paris!

I would stop selling real estate to others and only work for me, managing my money and my investments. I would give a lot of it away to my charitable interests and go searching for other good causes to support. I would set up trust funds for my kids and grandchildren.

I'd take it over the maximum number of years and will it to my family.  They will be covered for life.  Personally, travel, buy thoroughbred race horses, give to charity, buy a boat or two, let my wife spend freely, invest in real estate and stocks, find new ventures.

We all think BIG when is comes to money right? We think security for ourselves.. Our families.. and every one we love.. Let me give you the outcome.. in the form of a question.. Do you currently take care of everyone you know.. ( I do ).. Do you have some kind of plan when all those people find out that you are well to do? (because you will need one). Do you know how to manage an income over 500k (most of you do) so what happened to the money? Okay. Okay.. now decide.. (worse case... everyone in your entire life comes to  you for money) it will happen.. (You  already made the decision that you will not support family and friends that wont take effort to support themselves)  but it's still happening.... what now.. ? What do you Active Rainers DO.. I need to know. What do you do?
