For those of you that have received (or will receive) material liquidity ($250K+), what do you plan to do with it? Start a new company? Venture investing? Etc?

    I like my job, so Iโ€™ll keep doing that until I donโ€™t want to anymore.

    If we do enter a bad market, I will have financial stability and be able to wait it out without relying on liquidating my equity to pay the bills.

    I am interested in angel investing, but there is so much competition in that space right now that I think returns may be higher elsewhere.

    I plan to gradually sell my stock and move things to a relatively conservative portfolio. Iโ€™m going to leave more in company stock than an advisor would probably tell me to, but I understand this company and itโ€™s prospects better than I understand any other company and am happy to take that risk.
