Suppose you win the lottery...

My bored young mind just came up with a random thought. Suppose you won at least a million in the lottery, and had all of the money to spend it on anything you want that would be considered a business expense. What would you get?

I think of this alot

A: Get top of the line Excavating equiptment and start excavating. I would love to do it expecally if I had really good equiptment.

B: Put a down payment on a nice golf course. 1 mill isn't enough to pay it off but with that much down it without any stress it wouldn't be to hard to get it going.

C: Finish college, invest in really nice landscaping equiptment, Trucks, plows maybe a small excavator and a power box.

The golf course is my favorit, my life long goal is to own a golf course.
