With a jackpot estimated to be $201 million, entering the Mega Millions lottery just might be the most entertainment you can buy for a buck. But don't order that yacht just yet: your odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number is 1 in 175,711,536. With odds of approximately 1 in 750,000 you are about 234 times more likely of being struck by lightning.
But that's not going to keep people from dreaming. Available in 43 and 44 jurisdictions, respectively, Mega Millions and Powerball combine to form a nearly national lottery. Only 6 states participate in neither.
And on March 18, 2011, a lot of dreamers will be watching those dancing balls.
If you don't take it too seriously, entering lotteries can be be fun, and, on average, 35% of ticket sales do go to support government services in the member state. But if you really want to be a financial success, down-to-earth planning and action is the ticket. You know that – that's why you're a small business owner in the first place.
An excellent way to increase the odds of growing a successful business is opening one or more virtual offices.
