If you won a lottery would you still be working on your job?

I was wondering how many people would leave their job, if ever they won a jackpot on lottery. Would you still be working with your job, if you won a lottery jackpot? Or would you transfer and find the job that you want?

If i won the lottery i would still continue working, well right now i dont have a job, but if i had a job when i win the lottery i think i would continue, though maybe i would ask for a parttime job instead. Simpply to get out of the house and see people, again it would depend if it would be worth working (based on taxes) I would start up the company of my mind, and start hirering employees, so eventually my money will increase and that would be a good investment, in that sense i would also still be working.

Ahh yes if i won the lottery i think i would also spend a little on a nice veacation somewhere, just to have a few weeks for me to enjoy life together with my boyfriend. Actually i got a free 1/5th lot to our lottery here in the Netherlands through a sale somewhere, so on the 10th of february i will know if i won :) If i win the main prize i think i should be ensured like 1mill EUR... That should be enough to manage with for some time ;)

ah, you're working at home. It could be nice, since you have all your time. Unlike when you're working with people. Although it could boring as you stay at home for whole day. By the way did you bet a lottery? A vacation could be great. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Hi careguarden! I don't join lottery. But if ever I will and will get the jackpot, I'll make my own business (es) and make money out of it. I will also give some of it to the poor or even in charity. I think I will not work anymore too.
