Not exactly. I'd work on a few things. I'd get bored. Would probably spend maybe 28-30 hours a week working. Mixing up time volunteering on a non-profit board. Maybe 2. I'd setup an angel investment fund. And then I'd do a similar job to what I have now but focus on strategy and mentor someone to do it, consulting companies on best practices on my space. And I'd spend some time as a personal shopper.

I am self employed and like what I do. I would keep doing it, but take more time off. I am an advocate for rural Maine as it says by my handle. A state legislator actually gave me my handle. One asked the other one, "Who IS that guy?" He said, "That is the Northern Maine land man. He knows all the land use laws and what they do to people."

That was back around 1975. I liked it and adopted his description. I own 25 acres of old growth forest. I would buy up some more land, but not to deny anybody the enjoyment of their own property. Northern Maine is under attack by the environmental industry. It has been referred to as rural cleansing. They don't want us here and do everything they can to eliminate economic opportunity.

I would open some manufacturing plants like Moosehead Furniture to provide economic opportunity. They would soon become employee owned. Then the cycle would repeat. Maine natives could return with their families and find work. The plants would be profitable and would expand. Certain state agencies would do all they could to prevent this. With backup funds they could be fought in the courts.

I would quit my job only if I didn't die from the heart attack that winning that much money would cause

Why be a personal shopper when you can be your OWN shopper with a BILLION dollar budget?!
