If you were to win a lottery. Let's say it's something like the Powerball, and the prize is AT LEAST $20,000,000. Could be more, and all payable up front or over time (your choice).
Would you continue working as a recruiter, or retire and pursue other interests?
I'm not gonna lie, with that amount of money I would retire and travel.....Ireland here I come!!!
Color me gone, i would move to the front range of the rockies, start a horse rescue...well , wait i would probably hang on to about five of my best clients that i enjoy working for. Ya gotta have something to do inside when the snows hit the front range.
I would take some and invest it our current company to make sure they stay viable, just because my owner has treated me like a partner and I would want to return something extra to him..! Then, buy a house on the ocean ( satisfy my wife), a house in the mountains (satisfy me). Take care of some family members, help out a couple of local charities near and dear to my heart here in NH, then take long vacation and then go back to my company and help them continue with business development part time..At least that's what I think I would do, today.. Oh, one last thing, visit Sandra on her horse farm ( which she will have since she is such a force in the industry) and go skiing!!!
I'd set aside lump sums for college funds, marriages of kids, retirement fund etc. Travel. Come back and continue working as a recruiter but now at MY own pace ;-)
Its a fun job!!! Especially when the stress is off.
