The Great PCS Book Giveaway #5

The last book in the Great PCS Book Giveaway is one of my favorite personal finance books:  Die Broke by Stephen Pollan and Mark Levine.  Pollan and Levine helped me develop my money attitudes, specifically creating a career path that provides pleasure as well as income and developing income streams that will remain throughout our lives.

I liked this book so much that I bought a second copy to loan to friends, and now I’m sharing it with you.  Rules are the same:  you must answer the question in the comments, and it will be open for five days (until noon on Monday, June 14th.)

Today’s question:  If you won a million dollars (after taxes), what would you do with it?

I know what I would do:  I’d give away 10%, save 10% in something traditional and relatively conservative, I’d spend 10% on some fun, and I would use the rest to work towards my dream of vacationing with my family and living on the water somewhere.

    I will give my church 10%, and I always wanted to do something for the homeless(build a homeless shelter) and help elderly peoples on a fixed income. Then I would invest some in my childrens and grandchildren future. Help family members that is struggling. Then enjoy the rest.

  • I would pay bills, put at least half away for retirement, put a little back for each kid, buy a few of the things we’ve always wanted (boat or motorcycles) and use the rest for a large downpayment on our dream house. Any that is left goes to savings/retirement.

  • The winner is: Naomi! The random generator chose #1. I will email you tomorrow to get your mailing address. I hope that you like this book as much as I like it.
