Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.

Let's say some woman you talked to just won a million dollars but said no to the money. Why is that? What made the woman change her mind about the money? What would you do differently?


Enjoy!!!

Fame and fortune are full of shit, not to mention the celebrity status will be too much for her to handle.

Also, look up more on the lottery winners. She's not going to go through that shit.

If she already enjoys a fulfilling life 1 million smackaroos won't contribute that much more to the quality of it. Granted, poverty sucks but a million smackeroos will not assuage your soul if there is nothing within to begin with.

Personal experience: I inherited a lot of $$$ 20 years ago in 1 fell swoop when 1 of my parents passed on. Positive: I didn't have to do servile work any more if I so chose. This I did, immediately after her funeral.

Downside: Moved from a paid for home for a larger one which had more space, more accompanying acreage, more debt, assumed more risk. As a single individual everyone I dated from this point forward....did they like/love me for me or was it my capital assets?

Responsibilities accelerate exponentially: CFP, tax accountant, complicated 1/4-ly tax estimates (state & federal), LLC?, incorporate? I haven't been able to do my taxes by myself since that inheritance. Annually, instead of paying no dollars to file my taxes pre-inheritance I have to pony up $1200 via a CPA so the IRS and MoDoR will avoid noticing my existence and pester, chase bigger taxable fish. Any changes I make in my trusts, CRT will invite a tax audit. I never had this problem when I was poor.

Damn government keeps changing the tax laws, rules. More money generates more headache. Too bad anarchy isn't the end all be all tax simplification solution I want it to be. Boo hoo.

Everyone I knew before my status changed worked for a living. Everyone I knew after my status changed worked for a living. I saw less of them over time. It's an ideal situation if you wish to become a NEET, but not if you're slightly handicapped socially to begin with as no one you once knew before the windfall has any time for you anymore.
