Inherited a fortune. Now what?


We all know those Nigerian scam emails. Well, lets just say one of them is not a scam, and you receive it, and you do inherit a fortune from a person that has no relatives and has randomly picked you

In what direction would your life go from that point?

- Pay my debts.
- Buy a 'certified' second hand car to replace the one I have now.
- Buy a 'reasonable' home at a decent price.
- Invest the rest.

... then life goes on as normal - minus taxes.

hmmm, where would my life go? The next thing I would do is probably wake up and brush my teeth.

Second best is perfect because there's still that goal to reach for...and less stress because people can't say "Hrmm...THIS is the best?!?".

Cocaine and hookers. God, what a life!



Seriously though, I already have plans for funds of that size as is. "Inheriting" it would simply mean I get to bypass meeting with venture capitalists.
