Say you have a business and someone is offering you $10 million to buy it off.

How should one set up their finances to live comfortably off this money.
How much should be passive investments and how much to start a new business?

If you're selling a business you already know how much to put away for starting a new business.

I would have a financial consultant or an accountant advise me.

33% I think, but with that amount of money, you should consult a financial advisor!

Unless you live in Florida take taxes into account.
It can be as high as 3 million.

How big is your family, where do you live, what are your yearly expenses?

I’m jealous… I was feeling lucky that I sold my business for $25,000!
I’m happy for you whoever you are…

You should obviously speak with a financial advisor.
Do you want to invest in another business?

So far it’s all in theory, and wondering if it’s worth to sell etc. this will depend on how we can set ourselves up financially.

Numbers are approximate, and there are partners….

$10 mil is your share?

What are your take home profits yearly, currently?

Definitely want to work on another business, while also investing passively.
I also think we need to make sure first year of living expenses are accounted for….

Not fully our share, but a big part is, and the investment would be done as partners.

That’s interesting.

Obviously things depend on how much your share is (large part can mean 75% or 99% or even 50% which are all drastically different) as well as what your post tax share is.
Your best bet is to speak with a financial advisor. Is there a reason why you haven’t yet?

It should be with Mazal!

My DH recently sold his business for more than that BH. He spent hours and money well spent meeting with accountants and financial advisors. It's the best money we spent.
We both met with the financial advisor. We gave him a complete picture of our family dynamics, our expenses, and our goals for the future. He came up with a plan which allows DH to dabble in other business ventures while keeping a steady "income" for our family.
This is not something you ask random women on the internet.
Do your research and meet with more than 1 advisor. The initial consultations should be free or inexpensive.
There are lots of factors to consider here and financial advisors literally do this all day.
B'hatzlacha! Its very exciting!

A close family member just sold his business for a bit more than that B'H. He DOES live in Florida and the tax's still came out to around 3 million. In CA taxes can be up to 50%. Just something to be aware of. But this is something that needs to be in the hands of a skilled financial advisor, not imamother. I know a family who sold their business for around 10 mill and are now destitute. Financial Advisor ASAP.

well, a bunch of random women have given you some good advice - get professional advice!

Even if you paid no taxes, and it was all yours, at the rate you are living the money would run out in twenty years. And you probably have a lot of weddings etc in the future. Plus, inflation.

There are so many factors, do either of you want to carry on working/running a business, do you own your house, do you have a retirement fund, are you saving money each year out of the $500000...

Of course, this is enough money to retire on, (or do like Naftai Bennet and go into politics) but possibly not at the standard of living you might want or are used to.
