That depends on how often you want to get a million. Per year? You'd probably be looking at executive jobs - Chief Operations Officer, Chief Financial Officer or Chief Executive Officer - for a very large company. That kind of job is likely to take you 3o-50 years to get to. Or perhaps a lawyer (but who'd want to be one of those?)
But if you are thinking about working 40 hours a week for that kind of money, forget it. To be paid like that, your job must be your life. A better route, if you simply want to become financially independent, would be to work towards your goal from a different angle.
You'll need to start by saving money and gain what's called "capital." Then you must invest that capital in something smart, like a great deal on some property, or starting a killer business. If you're smart and you stay energized you could be making a million a year in about a decade instead of 50 years.
Remember this phrase: "Wealth is not about how much you make, it's about how much you keep." It means that a wise person makes the best use of what they have, always turning it into more, rather than expecting others to give them anything.
