I recently wrote a column for Forbes titled “Don’t Make These 6 Common Sudden Wealth Mistakes.” Here are the six common sudden wealth mistakes:
1. Making unnecessary decisions.
2. Spending money.
3. Promising anything or making commitments.
4. Sharing news with others.
6. Self-medicating with alcohol/drugs.
You can read a full description of each by going to the Forbes column: Don’t Make These 6 Common Sudden Wealth Mistakes
