This Is How Mark Cuban Thinks You Should Spend The Powerball Jackpot
Hopefully, the winner is smart enough to secure a financial advisor and put the money to good use because most people wouldn't know how to even begin managing bank accounts that gloriously full. Hell, most people can't even make their paychecks last two weeks (or is that just me?).
Fortunately, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is here to help.
The billionaire, who famously went from flat broke to mega-rich in a matter of years, provided The Dallas Morning News with several tips to help the jackpot winner get the most bang for his or her (billions of) buck(s).
Cuban said hire a tax attorney, don't invest unless you know what you're doing and don't give handouts to all your friends and family (unless they really need them).
He also suggested opting out of the lump-sum option to avoid blowing all the winnings at once, and he advised the winner to remember that money -- even buttloads of it -- won't buy happiness.
