“A fool and his money are soon parted” (Unknown) people who are lucky enough to become suddenly rich will only ruin their life in the long run, either by winning a lottery, having a successful investment, or just claiming an inheritance, with these categories there are same effects: bothering charities, filing for bankruptcy within next five years, and unlasting happiness.

It is all about being ready, having a good plan to what to do with the money and long term coaching by financial advisors of how to spend money by not going insane with it. “Not every dream is a money dream.” (Sudden?
