    The first thing you'd do with 1 million dollars?

    Hey CNET,

    If I had 1 million dollars the first thing I'd do is pay off all my debts. I'm not a fan of owning money to anyone so if I had the chance to clean up my debt quickly I'd do just that.

    What would you do with 1 million dollars?

    Re: The first thing you'd do with 1 million dollars?

    If I had a million dollars the first thing I would do would be to hire a financial planner. I'm decent with figures but I can't wrap my head about that sort of money and the new rules that would apply to me for drastically changing income brackets. I would like professional advice to make my money work for me and enable me to help my family (particularly my parents, who are getting older and live in a house that requires quite a bit of upkeep!).

    Re: The first thing you'd do with 1 million dollars?

    Hello Cam,

    The first thing I would do with a million dollars is pay my tithes!! After giving the first of my increase then I would pay off ALL of my debt, then my parents debts. I would love to be debt free and also see the joy of people around me benefiting from the blessings that have been given to me :)

    Re: The first thing you'd do with 1 million dollars?

    Good morning Cam!

    If I had a million dollars, first thing I do is jump up and down, and scream like a crazy person, probably cry, lol then get a lawyer.

    Re: The first thing you'd do with 1 million dollars?

    Hello Cam!

    I absolutely love MamaBear's response. After I jumped up and down, called my boss and told them I QUIT, changed my phone number and my last name, deleted all of my social media pages (except for CNET of course). I'd find a financial advisor and a company to invest in.

    Thanks for the fun question.

    Hi cam!! I would probably have a stroke...but I would love to buy a bakery for my mom so she can bake her magic!! I would send my parents to an island so they can pick out a spot or place to have a house there. My brother...I would set him up with whatever he wanted!! As for myself I would love to travel!! I would also give some to my local shelter for all those kittys and dogs!! lol

    Re: The first thing you'd do with 1 million dollars?

    Hi Cam,

    First thing I'd do with a million dollars is pay off debt and buy my dream house in a location that I love.

    Thanks,

    I hope it isn't taxed, because that would lower it down a bit, ha ha! I would use that money to pay off the house, and then divide the rest. One half is used as a security net in tough times, and the other will be used as a nest egg.

    Re: The first thing you'd do with 1 million dollars?

    Hi cam,

    It’s funny how many people wish to pay of debts, I guess it’s something we all struggle with. As for me, I would first of all pay my tithes. Next I would also pay my debts and parents debts. Then I would get a lawyer/ Financial advisor to help manage the remaining amount of money. But before all that I would make sure no one but my mom and dad found out. I feel like money tends to disappear quicker when too many people know you have it.

    Re: The first thing you'd do with 1 million dollars?

    Winning a million dollars sounds like a lot of money. Well, it is to most of us! But, after taxes, it will be a lot less than we actually started with. My first inclination would be to set aside money for college for me and my brother and money to cover my parents debts. After that I think a wise choice would be to consult with a financial planner to learn how to invest the remaining money.

    Great question!

    Re: The first thing you'd do with 1 million dollars?

    Hey Cam,

    That would be the best day ever to win a million dollars!!!

    I would also pay off my debts. I regret owing the money that I owe. I hate having debt!

    Then, I'd buy a super nice RV to live in with my family, and we'd travel. I would buy a few project houses to flip over time.

    Thanks for the forum! May everyone on here have financial success today!

    Re: The first thing you'd do with 1 million dollars?

    Hey!

    I would buy a house for sure. I live in a very small house with a lot of people so it's so hard for us to get around.

    Thanks
    Have a nice day!

    Re: The first thing you'd do with 1 million dollars?

    Hey,

    The first thing I would do with a million dollars is first set some money aside for my tuition. That’s probably the most important thing. Then I probably would pay off some bills. After doing all that, I will then buy me a super luxurious condo and I definitely will upgrade my car to a G wagon. I would save the rest of the money.

    Hi Cam,

    Good question! The first thing I’d probably do is give a sizeable portion to charity or my church.
    Another idea I had is to invest in real estate, buying some apartments so that I’d earn more money, then I could give more. A million seems like a lot, but it could easily fade, so investing it seems like a good idea.

    I really liked some of your guys responses, especially the people who would quit their job, jump up and down, cry, and other stuff!

    Have a good one!

    Re: The first thing you'd do with 1 million dollars?

    Hey Cam,

    Yep, I am with you the first thing I would do is pay off debt ( after thanking the Good Lord Above for my good fortune)! I do not like being in debt it adds too much stress to life!!!

    Have a great day!!!

    Thanks for the forum,

    Re: The first thing you'd do with 1 million dollars?

    Hiya Cam,

    What about the left over cash? I'm hoping you don't owe a million in debts *crosses fingers*

    I would do the same, then invest in real estate so the million would keep on paying :)

    Hello Everyone!


    What would be the first thing I'd do with 1 million dollars? Well, the irresponsible Kayjoe would go on a shopping spree in Paris. However, the responsible Kayjoe would pay off debt. Lets toss a coin and see what happens! :)))

    Hi Cam,

    I would start off by tithing, then I would move on to my debts. Once those are out of the way, I would fix my car so that I wouldn't have any issues with it for awhile. Then I would put a couple hundred thousand into a retirement fund of some sort. Lastly, I would save up for a wedding and a house so that I don't have to worry about saving up for them later. The one million would be a huge relief financially, but it's just wishful thinking unfortunately.

    Re: The first thing you'd do with 1 million dollars?

    Hello aspiring millionaires!


    If I had a million dollars I would save half in numerous banks with high interest rate. Invest 250,000 and then spend 250,000. That is of course if Uncle Sam already got his cut!


    With love (and hopefully money one day) shayla,
