Windfall TV Show – What Would You Do With Millions?

Posted by techie on July 11, 2006

I’ve been watching the TV show Windfall(http://www.nbc.com/Windfall/money_tracker/) lately and have really found the list of stories quite interesting. However, I think they’ve all taken the wrong course with their money. They are all acting like complete fools.

I’ll tell you what I’d do. I’d put the first $5 million in a very solid investment. I’d take the rest except for $1 million and put it in a higher risk set of investments. The last $1 million I would use to purchase a home and a few toys. From that point on I would not allow myself to spend anything except the interest earned by that money. I would continue doing my current IT job because I love what I do. I would stop working the 8-5 and definitely stop the grind of doing it every day. However, I would still do IT consulting so that I could do what I enjoy and help other people enjoy the benefits of IT. Any other money I made and interest would be enough for me to play to my hearts content while still being satisfied doing a fulfilling job.

Now, where’s my millions?
