What would you do if you won the lottery?

Would you still go to work and earn money online? Would the money change you or would you keep all the same friends and have the same values?

Who will not like the money. I just embrace it and get out of all the dirty works I am doing for a meagre some and lead my life in a more meaningful and peaceful way.

Absolutely. I would like to get away from where I currently work and focus on my ambitions and travel more.

I would not work anymore, or at least not where i am now. It would probably change me, that seems inevitable.

It would be nice to be able to choose a job without thinking about the salary at all. I would do some charity work part time as a volunteer, but also save some time to enjoy the money :)

I would first give money to my children or put some away for their future. I would then give some to my dad. Then I would give money to my church. After that I would pay off my house and start remodling it. That way I would know no matter what I would always have a roof over my head. I am sure I would invest some then. I think then at that point I would open up a store here in town because we really need one because we have to go to another town to buy anything. We have some run down buildings in town so I figure I could get rid of those and put the store there that way the town would look better too. I wouldn't change who I spent time with and I wouldn't change my values. I guess I know that some people get their money and go through it so fast that they end up poor again. I would hope by spending the money like I said it would set me up to continue to make money and never have to worry about having a home.

I would buy a house. Then quit my Job and do something that I like doing like drawing and writing, and if I make money off of it then great. Then I would invest the rest of it to be sure I never have to work again. I would change some of course, but for me it wouldn't be as drastic as most young people would. I have no need of jewelry or anything flashy. Of course I would want a decently nice car, a nice but modest house, and good furniture. My clothes would probably be a little better and I would have more electronic gadgets to be sure. I would definitely keep my same friends because if you weren't my friend before the money then what good are you?
