Sweepstakes Winner Natalie Bostelman featured in AOL WalletPop Interview
Have you ever thought about the steps you would need to take if you suddenly found yourself winning a significant amount of money? I know I did back in 2008 when I won a $1 Million SuperPrize from Publishers Clearing House!
A few weeks ago, I was asked to participate in an interview with AOL’s WalletPop, a site dedicated to consumer finance. They asked about my financial situation before and after the Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes prize windfall. I told them how we were in debt and really needed the money to pay off bills. My husband and I were juggling jobs and barely getting by in our trailer home before the day the PCH Prize Patrol showed up to change all that.
With our winnings we built a new home and planned our financial recovery carefully. In the interview I provided a few tips on how to handle such a windfall if it were to come your way.
The story also includes profiles of other people who came into financial windfalls and how their stories turned out. These stories, as well as my own sweepstakes winner story, are part of an introduction to the premiere of TLC’s series, The Lottery Changed My Life. The on-air date of the television show featuring my PCH sweepstakes prize win will be this Sunday, August 15th at 10 pm. Hope you like it!
