Put the money in a safe place and live off the interest for a few years. Then decide, after careful planning and research of the marketplace, what you want to invest in long-term.
I hear so many stories about people coming into life-changing amounts of cash and losing it all. I recently seen an interview with T. Boone Pickens where he is quoted as saying something along the lines of “A fool with a plan is better than a genious with no plan”. Make sure you have a plan, this money will change your life. It is up to YOU whether it will be for better or worse.
Good Luck to You
