Show All Comments

First off I would pay off my student loa... oh wait. Lol.

1. Phish tickets to whatever shows I can make it to.

2. House. Nothing crazy over the top, but something you can afford.

3. Ford Explorer. No reason to waste a ton of money on something that is going to depreciate so rapidly in value.

4. Investments putting dollars to work instead of letting them hang out by the pool.

Ford Explorer Land Rover 

Might as well go to those shows in style.

On a lease from a dealer connected to the team that you probably won’t pay for anyway.  Ensures constant new model years so you don’t look poor.

3. Swap out the Explorer for a 4runner. The latter has much better resale value.

Just did a quick tax estimate for what $22m would pay in federal/state/local taxes by living in CA.

He would get to keep 48%, before agent fees.

So that $22m is down to about $10m, right from the start.

A son and daughter and they’re ready to move out?  Man, life comes at you fast when you’re Nick Bosa and you have $22m. 

1.  The house. 

2.  The everyday vehicle. I have no idea what driving around San Francisco is like, but I’m partial to a double cab.

3.  The fun vehicle, most likely German. Fit would be a determining factor.

After my top three I would amass quite the guitar collection. One of which would be David Gilmour’s red strat going to auction June 20th.

The black strat too probably.

Logged in just to vote for this.  Next would be tickets to Gilmour's next, which I doubt will ever happen.

HS

Sadly yep. The fact that he is auctioning off his guitar/instrument collection does not look good for future touring. Wish I could go see the collection at Christie's. I can't even imagine standing in these rooms so close to history.

Interesting that he's auctioning them all for charity. Good for him. 

Fender already has a deal with him, so they'll make him whatever he wants.

Yeah, I don't know, nothing too crazy - beef up the investments, resources towards higher education for the lad, probably a new car.

Maybe spruce up the Premium Lounge...hire up a regular cleaning service there.

Fun mental exercise to start the week.

Before I start making purchases, I'd take about 25% of that for a few causes and organizations that I support. Then I'd take about half and find someone I can trust to use that money to make more money so that I never run out. Then with the remaining 25% I would buy a new house with some land, guns, and probably a month long vacation to somewhere warm.

2. I'd go to rogue and buy everything my little heart desired

3. I'd buy a place to put all that rogue shit in. Something nice but not to crazy over the top.

Man, that's too much money to have to really consider what to do with.

1. 50% of that is going into a mutual fund, trust fund, or something similar. Let that money work for me to build some generational wealth.

2. 25% is going to charity or to worthy causes

3. Remaining money I’m gonna by myself some things. New equipment for the farm, upgraded shops, a real nice bass boat for me, helping out the parents and siblings, maybe buy a couple more farms.

1 - 10% given out to church and charity
2 - new house. let's be honest, I want a pool, home theater, a maid, and a chef in this budget as well
3 - invest

I'm only "smart" with my money to a certain extent. I'm a huge believer in enjoying life and not hoarding money for a future that's not guaranteed.  I don't have a huge desire to retire early, either, so I'm not too worried about that.

HS
MaineStrength's picture

I'd find a comfortable place to live, although I'm not sure I'd buy right off the bat.  I might rent for a bit first.  Then, I'd buy a car.  Then, I'd hire a financial advisor and invest for retirement that make that money work for you.

Strength equipment is expensive & guarantees you nothing. A strong will is free & will give you everything you need.

That was truly my first thought to post that, but I settled on the $80K Dodge, the $10K gun, and the $8 million dollar house.

Your idea would happen once you had the Dodge and the house. Bozeman is where Montana State U is. Hell, it's Montana, the rifle would probably help with that too.

Since the signing should be in San Francisco, I would take those involved and buy a round of drinks at the Top of the Mark.

Next. since most pro athletes are like politicians and think that tipping is a city in China, I would not have to pay for food, lodging, or transportation so I would buy an unassuming Lincoln pick-up truck. 

Now that all my earthly needs have been taken care of the next expenditure would be investments.

Pay off all debt, then buy enough stocks where I can easily live off the dividends alone for the rest of my life. 2nd and 3rd contracts will be where I get my toys. (though the amount of stocks I need to live off the dividends are a lot less than I'm guessing Nick will need)

Maybe a truck for projects (who am I kidding, I would just have other people do that stuff so it would definitely be a gaming set up)

1) I'd use part for down payment of a building in an upcoming metro area, and renovate it to host various events such as trade shows, campaigns, job fairs, art shows.  Hopefully make bank.

2) Add to my current portfolio.

3) Payoff car and upgrade to a Tesla model. Payoff the credit card but don't need 22 mil to do it fortunately. Leave mortgage as is.

4) Probably plan a trip to Hawaii or Monaco.

5) Buy tickets to every OSU game and fly up first class to Cbus.

After settling all debts and taking out taxes.

1) Buying a nice house, 5 bed/4.5 bath variety with a big back yard for the dogs. Definitely upgrading the kitchen, building a work shed, nice garage, solar/backup generators, the works.

2) Buy two or three rental properties, fix them up, rent them out.

3) Take a nice two or three week vacation to Greece, Italy and Spain. Stay in some nice Air B&Bs, but nothing over-the-top.

All told, I would probably budget 2.5-3.5 million for the "first three buys". Anything left I keep in a checking account for the daily life. Give my mom 2 million so she can live comfortably.

The balance is going into index funds.
