Book Description

If you won $88 million in the lottery, would you share with just your immediate family or would you share with your extended family as well? (Extended meaning aunts, uncles, and first cousins). In this book I asked over 100 people of all ethnic backgrounds this question and found that the answers and feedback I got may hold the key to why so many lottery winners seem to have bad luck after winning. So much bad luck that many believe there is a curse attached to winning the lottery. Even though I have never won the lottery I feel that my 20 years of observing the horror stories of lottery winners has given me an insight as to why this may be occruing. Some issues covered in the book will help evaluate some human behaviors as it is related to financial education, family dynamics, relationships, and most importantly, emotions.

About the Author

My Name is Michael and I have two children, a 20 year old son, Devon and a 7 year old daughter, Mya. I got remarried in 2013 and have no children by my new wife. I’ve been in the military so I know want discipline and determination involves. I’ve owned and helped run several small businesses and have sat and brainstormed with very wealthy people. I am not afraid to get my hands dirty and I am not afraid to get up and discuss a partnership with a corporate CEO. I am an avid reader; I especially love subjects on finance, history, ancient technology, health, and human nature. I am a very observant person and I can see patterns in everything people do and say. I’ve eaten dinner with some of the wealthiest people in the world and I have also been homeless. I believe having an opportunity to sit with wealth and then also experience homelessness has molded me into a better person and will make me a better writer one day.
