    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 would sell my lawn accounts and start a more profitable business....perhaps building houses. Of course I would pay off the lazer and keep it :)

    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.
