There is a small chance you could win…so what if you do?
Tonight is the big one… the Mega Millions jackpot is at $1.6 billion.
Of course, you’re going to win this thing — so here are some tips to make sure you’re ready:
Sign the ticket — If you haven’t signed the ticket and it blows out of your hand, you will go from being a big winner to being a BIG BIG loser.
Play nice — If you are in a work pool with a bunch of co-workers, you’re going to have to trust them to split up the winnings. You don’t want them to have any reason to back out of the deal.
Be quiet — Last thing you want to do is post it on FB or social media! Your life is about to change and you’re heading into uncharted territory. Say NOTHING! Wait as long as possible.
Hire a lawyer and a financial planner — The decisions you make now will have a huge impact on your life moving forward. Therefore, don’t make any decisions until you have a lawyer and financial planner to help you navigate things.
