Of course i will not stopping to work, because i like to working and i love my job. Naturally, i would work less hours each day. First of all, with a similar sum, i would take a lot of gifts for my family and all my best friends. Afterwards, i would plan a wonderful travels around the world in which places where i can enjoy relax, nature and culture.
Would be great also plan a great week in a prestigious SPA where you can make a lot of massage and thermal treatments combine with a great dinner each evening with a wonderful panorama upfront the eyes.
I would also give the same gift to my best friends.
I would also give a sum to charity.
one million dollars could be the first step to make a second one. Stock market are much volatily and you need to take care because risk is very high, or it depend on many times you want to build your wealth.
I think real estate investment, stock market and private equity investment in a mid and long time could be the best ways to make a good wealth.
You can also diverisify your asset portfolio to limit the risk and put your money safe.
If I had a million dollars I'd probably invest most of it in the stock market, and then take the rest and invest in local businesses and other projects to try to turn my 1 million into 2 million.
Honestly, I don't think one million dollars is worth that much nowadays. Many apartments are more expensive than that.
I'd probably use a small amount of it to travel and just save what was left. Brazillian economy is not in a great moment right now. :/
