Winning the Lottery Every Day

| March 29, 2024

Can you imagine winning $1.13 billion (before taxes)? If you've seen the headlines, you know this isn't a hypothetical for one lucky resident of New Jersey.1

I have no doubt the winner will feel like (over) a billion bucks if they claim their winnings. Wouldn't you? I know I would after beating the 1-in-302,575,350 odds of winning.

Now, don't get me wrong, I think it can be both exciting and fun to play the lottery. But building your financial future on a solid, strategic foundation can feel like winning the lottery daily—especially when all your hard work pays off.
