I wouldn't!! We own our business there is no point in "quiting" or walking away we have responsibilities.

So would you expand the business???

I have a day job and ONLY work to get money.  I enjoy the job/work but not the company I work for.  I would give them fair notice, and then give them a small book about how they are runing the company wrong.

      I would wait until I got the check before I did anything.  There would be nothing worse than quitting, then finding out there

      was a mistake or error of some kind and you didn't win after all...  And then having to ask for your job back.  No Nod

        I work for a really good comapny, so I would give my two week notice they have been good to me.

        Your colleagues would beg you so much that you would not go back the second day. Its not easy

        Personally I'd buy the company I work for and fire my boss. Then I would wait until he found another job then I would buy that one too and fire him again lol nah I'd just quit the minute I confirm/verify the big win.

        That money's gone fo ever
