According to Mark Cuban, here's what you should keep in mind after hitting the jackpot.

  • 1

    Hire a tax attorney

    If the Powerball sign can't handle the $1.5 billion jackpot, odds are you won't be able to either. Hire someone who knows the ins and outs of financial law and can advise you on the appropriate actions to take.

    Take the payments over time

    Avoid the lump-sum payment. You don't want to blow all your money in a short amount of time.

    You can't buy happiness

    Just because money can make life a little easier, doesn't mean you'll be happier. Find your purpose in life and if the money helps you do it...YOU'RE GOLDEN!

    Just say no

    "Friends" will come out of the woodwork, but keep it simple and just respectfully decline their request for money. You know who needs help, but seek advice from your tax attorney before making any decisions.

    "Remember this, no one needs $1 million for anything. No one needs $100,000 for anything. Anyone who asks is not your friend."

    Don't invest

    If you weren't already investing, don't try it out just because you came into a substantial amount of money. $930 million before taxes is more than enough to live comfortably.
