Around the office my coworkers and I have been dreaming about what we would do if we won the Powerball. The only thing we all agreed on is that we would keep it hush until we met with a financial advisor and lawyer.
One of my coworkers would take the money and buy a nice house in San Fran. We figured this house alone would take up about half of his winnings, haha. Another coworker said he would give $100 million to his brother and then give his mom a black AMEX card. He said he wouldn’t give her cash because she would just donate it all to the Catholic church ;).
Create a Financial Safety Net
I would definitely take $100 million and make sure it went into safe investments. I’m hopeful that I would never need to touch that $100 million and in my will I would donate it to various charitable organizations.
Save All the Cats
I would immediately donate so much money to animal nonprofits. You don’t have to tell me that there are plenty of humans on this earth that need the money. Adam reminds me of that every single time I make a donation to a charity for animals. I would donate plenty of money to organizations that provide assistance for humans, but I would also try to save all the cats.
Buy My Dream House on A1A in Fort Lauderdale
I love living in Fort Lauderdale, so much so that I wouldn’t even think about moving. I would just immediately build my dream house right on the beach. I would have big glass windows so that I could look out at the water any time I want.
Have Personal Aid Stations Setup Every Weekend
I would also hire people to create small aid stations along my normal long-run route every weekend. These small aid stations would be available for any of the local runners (and also the homeless). I know this is a bit crazy but let’s not forget I would be rich enough to make crazy decisions like this!
Travel the World on a Private Jet
Immediately after I get my affairs in order, and while my dream house is being built, I would buy a private jet and travel the entire world.
I would take a private jet for comfort, but also so that Cecil could have his own seat and litterbox on the plane.
Hire a Cat Nanny
Speaking of litterboxes I would never clean one again. I would hire someone who is responsible for scooping Cecil’s litter each time he goes. I think he would like that …and once again I would be rich enough to do crazy things. I would pay this person well and offer benefits too because anyone helping me take care of Cecil is a VIP.
Buy an Apartment in London and Paris
I love these two cities so much and I would definitely want a permanent residence in each. I would rent the spaces out through AirBNB at reasonable prices so that other people could benefit!
I would donate the money made through AirBNB to the local homeless community.
Start a Nonprofit (or Two)
After I got settled into my new life I am sure I would get the itch to do marketing again. I would start a nonprofit and be involved in the daily marketing activities. I am not entirely sure what kind of nonprofit it would be since there are already wonderful organizations I could just donate to when it comes to things like sex trafficking, access to clean water and human & animal rights.
Go to the Superbowl!
I would definitely live out all of my sports fantasies by buying the best seats for the Superbowl, sitting courtside at all of the big Miami Heat games and being in the front row for every NXT Takeover show.
Create a Free Race Weekend for the Run Blog Community & Fly Everyone In
Finally, I would create a free race weekend in someplace cool (we’d have to vote on the location) and then I’d fly everyone in!
I would make all race pictures free and I would have a ton of photographers on the course :).
What’s one thing you would do if you won the Powerball?
