"Part of the money would go to purchasing property. Purchase five or six older homes and rent them. Another portion would go setting up four trust funds and give my financial advisor the job of investing that money. The balance would go to purchasing stock on the market to see how I can actually do with real money." -- Tom, Seven Hills, Ohio
