>"Although I’m young I’ve had a crash course this week in financial management and I feel so fortunate to have this incredible wealth and team behind me," he said in the release. "I intend to take care of my family, have some fun along the way and cement a path for financial success so that I can leave a legacy far into the future."
Really hope this kid deletes every form of social media, changes his number and lives a life far away from his friends and family.
"Said he plans to relocate from the Tampa Bay area"
Solid choice, it would be the first thing I would do.
The only friends he will ever know are the ones he already has.
goddamn, a 20 yo? Usually it's people in their 60s. This dude is either going to have an amazing life...or one of the worst in history.
*2 days later* Florida man dies after ingesting 450M worth of Colombian cocaine with strippers
Contrary to most comments - I think he's actually got his head in the right place. The article and his statements make it seem like he hired the right folks and is doing it the right way:
From the article:
* Has a "Team" around him (probably a law firm, accountants, etc)
* Lawyers now speak on his behalf
* He's moving out of Tampa for good
* Seems like the only two people he told before Florida published his life, were his Brother and Father.
I think he'll be fine. Rare to find someone so young doing all the right stuff. This was a pleasure to read and great to see that this young man seems like a wholesome fellow. I mean, he met with his father and brother and had a cup of coffee after winning. That's just fantastic!
I think this is the first time I've seen Florida Man mentioned in a headline that doesn't end in something like, "sells children to witch doctor" or "drinks 50 gallons of milk". Good for him.
I went to high school with this kid. Actually one of my good friends. He has a good heart and I’m sure the money won’t change that. I just hope the best for him at this point.
Ya’ll so salty in this thread. I for one will readily admit I’m jealous as fuck. I’d be happy with .5% of that lmao.
This is my friend Shane from high school, unbelievable...
His actions/statements sound like he read up on that thread about what to do if you win the lottery that was posted on here about 1-2 weeks ago! He basically followed the advice on there. Must be a Redditor.
Time to lurk in r/personalfinance and see if he shows up
