Best Practices for Financial Windfall Planning

For holistic wealth management, you need to:

  • Avoid making hasty decisions that, in most cases, are driven by emotions
  • Have a team of professionals, including a financial planner, CPA or tax advisor, estate planning attorney, or any other relevant experts depending on the kind and size of the windfall
  • Have clear goals and rank them based on priority.
  • Define a strategy that will help you pay off debts – or at least pay them down
  • No matter your age, make sure you develop a retirement plan that significantly increases your nest egg
  • Keep your day job to preserve your windfall for longer. If you genuinely do not enjoy your day job, you can look into an alternative money-generating career.
  • Make informed investment decisions that protect your newfound wealth
