I am about to receive a considerable(for me, anyway) amount of money- about $100k- and really have no idea what to do with it to make it grow even larger.
Of course I want to pay off credit card debt($6k), and student loans($40k). I would also like to set aside an 'Emergency Fund,' donate to one or two causes I support, and travel(not extravagently, just see everything this world has to offer).
What do I do with the rest, say about $40k? I'm a freelancer, so some sort of financial security is important to me. Also, I'm VERY interested in safe(is there such a thing?) ways to make this small wealth grow into larger sums.
ETA: I am young, just graduated college. I have no desires to ever own a home, or any other large, time and money consuming item. And it's not that I want to necessarily do anything with the money. I just want it to grow so that I can stabilize and brighten my future, I just don't know how to do that.
