I'd like to get back to the Reservation and start some kind of Tech business for Tribe members.

Give them a chance to get in to the technical field; be it Art Design, Programming, Web Design, Career Development, etc.

That is awesome, I would even start a scholarship.

    Oh yes. I want to give like 40-60% of the JP back somehow. Jobs and scholarships!

    Wow that's awesome! So if you were to win a cool $1,000,000, the state and federal taxes (depending on state), would set you back around

    $400,000. Then with your remaining $600,00 you would be giving back $240,000 - $360,00 (40-60%) to job's and scholarships. That would be

    leaving you with a net of between $240,00 - $360,000. Very generous! We need more people like you.  Hyper

      I think everyone that wins creates jobs for others in one way or another (unless of course he/she stuffs their winnings under a mattress). Whether it be the house they get built, the car/s they buy, spending money always spurrs job growth. So I think to some degree, EVERYONE should be clicking yes. As far as directly employing people, that answer for me would be yes as well. I would invest in distressed houses and hire people to help me fix them up. Being a carpenter myself, this is a no-brainer for me. I also would like to open a restaraunt, of the dave&busters mold, and start up a green energy company selling & installing solar panels, wind turbines, etc...

        If I won a really big jackpot

         

        I would buy some land and go get all the permits and everything you need to do to build a housing addition.

         

        Then hire all the people you build a house from carpenters to plumber and everyone in between,

         

        The guideline I would use for someone to move in would be the following

         

         

        Steady job [at least 2years on the job]

         

        I would then look at the credit scores but, if the credit is not real good does not mean the will not get a home

         

        If the credit report shows that they are current with all the regular bills like car payments ulitlites, etc.

         

        But they had some kind of unexpected medical bill that was turn over to collections and drop their credit score they would still be able to buy a home

         I would charge 2% interest rate and they would pay their mortgage to my company [something like pay here buy here concept]

         

         

        The reason why the interest rate is low, it will that allow more people whose   income   is lower  to   buy a home

        Then I would still have an income coming in to do other things to help out people

         

        Of course there would be a lot of other legal thing I would have to do so I would have to hire a real estate lawyer

         

         

        That is just one of my ideas

            I said no.  But I am going to help my family out and help my local chapter of the food bank out.  I would also like to help my fire department out with new equipment and the sheriffs department.  Since I have a mental illness I would give to my mental health department too.-weshar75

                    sorry to hear about your illness,on the plus side i'd say your thinking is very clear.

                        Good responses everyone.

                        I'd like to say that, yes, it's true Business ventures can fail and educating one's self is very important to ward off failure, however, being a lottery winner (jackpot most likely) is not a prerequisite to failing in a business venture.

                          I would open a soup kitchen ,and a food pantry,and help the poor with basic needs.Once I meet people that use what I offer,I would find ways to better there lives,like education,jobs, and transportation to jobs and doctor appointments.

                          Along the way find new investors to keep this program going.

                              Probably not with intent as I am retired and would like to enjoy my retirement!   However, I would certainly fund businesses for my children.  Therefore, indirectly I suppose the wealth I recieve would create jobs.  I imagine being very philanthropic in addition to enjoying life to the fullest.  Certainly a scholarship.  I would also get great pleasure from contributing secretly to the causes that I find worthy.  Also, this I found on a televised  program of lottery winners:  a winner regularly buys tickets and gives them out with the stipulation that they share in the winnings.  What a nice addition to the tip for the waitress who just gave you the excellent service that is definitely lacking  today?  I was a waitress back in my college days and a good one too!  A good tip was always appreciated.
