I'm an administrative assistant and my boss is working my last nerves. So much so I don't even want to be an Admin or Exec. Asst. So my current job I would quit, but I woudl use the winning money to return to school and become a nurse so I can help people. But my current job I would quit and not look back!!!

I'd work in the foundation I started, helping to turn peoples misery around. But that wouldn't be work, that would be my passion!

I enjoy doing what I do although I guess people call it work...
I would continue to go to school.. I would continue to teach. I would probably open up a private school to keep crazy parents from interrupting my day.
As for the parttime jobs.. I would find something else to do with my time.. lol

If I quit "work" after I won a 100+ million jackpot, I think I woud get bored pretty soon. I would instead study further and try to obtain a job which I would enjoy. Also, making sure you retain your new found wealth for years to come is a job in itself.
I would definitely go back to school to take a couple of finance classes and maybe accounting. Even if I dont manage my wealth, I would atleast know what my financial planner is talking about and decide if his decisions are in my interest.
But just knowing that I have a 35+ million (after tax) cushion to fall back onto would certainly help me excel in whatever I do in the future; there would be no more financial stress.
Nothing "twisted" about your response. I totally agree, especially the part about "understanding what the financial planner is talking about".
Maybe you should forward your email to Terrell owens!

I would work on bettering the world (that is, when I'm not skinnydipping with Playboy bunnies hehe), not bettering my boss.

I have often thought of the aspect, that if I had won a substanial sum of money ...what I would do... or invest in, what really piques my interest and buy a business accordlingly.For me it's cars and living on the water....sooo I would build and open a business to work both areas, but would also hire the right personnel that I could just pack up and leave to go where ever I would like and for as long as I like....the car thing is somewhat different than what I do now...but I could do things with them that I have always wanted to do ..show them and then sell them.....but as for an actual job.....you have gotta be out of you r$$)&_%##@**@ mind.....LOL....but of course dreaming is a mind set of its own....whatever your dream, just don't let someone screw it up for you when it does happen....lol....whats that Aerosmith song...oh yeah...DREAM ON.....LOL
Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me: I may not follow.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Depends on the job and whether they would allow you to stay. Public school teachers, for instance, are encouraged to quit immediately by the school system for liability reasons. If you offend one of the kids, the parents could sue you and the school system. A lot of jobs are like that. Your exposure to a lawsuit would make a normal workday impossible, even if you like your job. Kind of sad . . .

I don't work now why would I work after winning 100 million. Oops, I take that back I'd work hard at spending it and having fun.
Time is a wonderful teacher, but it kills all its students.
A man must consider what a rich realm he leaves when he becomes a conformist.
