HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

It only takes six numbers to change someone’s life forever. But what should you do if you actually win?

“The first step is to meet with an attorney, meet with a CPA, with a financial adviser and put together a plan," Financial Adviser Aaron Ladner

Ladner also spoke about what it takes to keep the money before spending it all.

“We align people’s goals with their investment strategy and the risk that they have. So it’s important to sit down with a financial adviser and go over the goals that you have for you and your family and things that are important to you,” Ladner said. 

According to the Mega Millions website, you have a 1 and 250 million chance of winning the jackpot.
