  1. i’d do something fullfilling which truly is fun for me.

    like creating a home for homeless animals and look up after them.

    i guess you could say thats also work, but it doesn’t generate any income. doesn’t have to anyway, assuming i get 50 mil…

  2. Yeah. That’s plenty to live a upper middle class life on while also having plenty left for a Roth IRA and other investments to have really excellent growth. The biggest hassle would be getting around taxes

  3. I would never work for anyone else ever again. I would invest more into my hobbies and monetize them, and I’d donate most, if not all, of the profit I earn from it.

  4. I would quit at $1.2M NW as it is my FIRE goal.

    I would not quit working for myself, but I would quit taking orders from others and do what I wanted to do for myself and still keep a regular 8 hr work day and plan it, etc, but work on personal projects all the time and travel a lot more.

    Fingers crossed for 2032 but with 2022, its more like 2034 now :/

  5. I need to do something to keep the money going, I wouldn’t want to spend it all recklessly and having a lot of free time means having more expenses too. And I’m actually ok with working a few hours everyday (like 4 hours).

    So I’d hire someone to help me manage my money. Maybe start some businesess and manage some of them myself, or just being the owner and getting some revenue every month, I don’t care.

  6. 50 million dollars would allow you to own your time where you aren’t working to live. You can quit working in the sense of working a day job. Although, you can keep “working” by doing things that you enjoy and love.
