       @cash4ninja..I would not quit just then. I would get my financial house in order first and then I will put in a two weeks notice.

      1 Million dollars wouldn't be enough for me to quit my job.

        Nooo I wouldnt quit for 1 million dollars...I'd love to come to work after I won that amount, because I'd just be working for my retirement and savings then...I have at least a good half set aside for the nest egg, pay off the house, buy 2 good running cars, go on a couple good vacations, get new furniture and a couple flat screen tvs, then work out the rest of my 25 yrs and retire happy

          I think one million (post taxes) would not do it for me. If I could get 2 million net, I'd give it a shot at saying goodbye to the day job and just do my own art career.

            This sound like a plan for me I also would continue working  until I age 55 but I would quit my job no questions and notice given if I Hit It Big !! for 2 Million!!

            One day I will Hit BIG!!

                   @ThemBonez, I would work for myself. After they take out the taxes, you should have at least 400,000. I would finance my own business. I would not quit my job until my business was successful.

                  $1M after taxes ends up being close to $0.6M. So the answer is no. I would however look to find a less stressful job because the rent would be paid off. Maybe work at a funeral home muhahaha, I can't believe I said that lol

                  That money's gone fo ever

                    I would quit my current job, but I wouldn't quit working. I would start my own business doing what I would like to do and work at a much slower, less stressful pace.

                          I would give my notice, however, stay working until the end of the year.  From that point, I would buy a 10-20 unit multi family building and run that full time.  I live in a great area where the cost of living isn't crazy and I don't have a desire to own a mansion.

                            Not for $1 million. Perhaps that would be fine if one was going off the grid and wanted to live in a house identical to Ted Kaczynski's, a  million is plenty.

                              Nope. Not old enough. It would just accelerate the retirement planning.

                              $600-700k is enough own a house outright, add to my retirement, take care of kids' college, and go on a pair of reasonable vacations... Pretty much breaking even. Would be great to be there and then use my income for focus on an earlier retirement.
