I would probably still work - I would be bored otherwise.

No, I would not continue to work. Since I would be in a position that I am no longer financially straped I would not need the money from a job. I would let my job go, and and make it available for someone else who may need employment. I would then be in the position to volunteer my services in order to keep me busy. I would volunteer at children's hospitals and also do volunteer work for animal shelters. I would have the freedom to do what I want when I want. And I would help my family out as much as I could.

I have though about that if I ever won millions in the lottery would I still work or would I just stay home. I think I would get bored staying home all the time I think I would keep my part time job. I have a wonderful job I work in the childwatch of my local YMCA I supervise children while their parents work out it can really be a fun job kids can be really funny they are great at making you laugh with some of the make belive things they come up with.

Yes. I would still work. I am a very independent person and so just having things handed to me would make me feel worthless. I dont even plan on retiring ever unless I was unable to work and was forced to.

I thought when we retired that in a short time I would want to go back to work, and certainly there have been opportunities to do that, but I was wrong. I am just loving not being tethered to someone else's clock. It is not that I don't like students. I will always feel like a teacher inside. But I just have no desire to deal with the bureaucracy.

No. I will travel around the world, stay in places for as long as I want without ever having to worry about going back to a specific place. If I don't get to travel and I still have that money, then I will find some kind of work. I think I'll get bored and miserable if I can't find some kind of meaning in life.

hi friend. i would still work. the money that i may have will be easily spent. so if its not invested proper, it will be gone in just a blink of an eye. i will work to make that money grow and i will be able to have it inherit my my children and help many less fortunate people.
