    If you won the jackpot, would you still do your dream job?

    If you were to win $350 million and you were working a job you loved, would you quit? If you haven't achieved your dream job, would you continue onward toward your dream?

    My answer is without a doubt yes. If it's a job I love, then it wouldn't be just about the money. I'd be loving it. Now, I'm not sure if I'd work full time or maybe I would.

    If you have $350 million, would you want to sit at home all day every day?

    I wouldn't "work" another day in my life. I'd do anything and everything that I enjoy. If that means opening a gaming business, an arcade, etc., I wouldn't consider that "work". I'd buy psu.com

    My dream job would be to work in film, mainly acting. I'd love to be a part of something inspirational and be part of promoting it and so on once the project was complete. So on that basis, if I am to be realistic, I'd look to work, but I'd probably be more relaxed about it because I'd have financial backing, but I would still pursue work within the field.

    I'd go to my everyday job, keep working and plaster print-outs of my bank account all over the workplace.

    I don't really know what my dream job is so can't answer that part.

    I wouldn't do anything that I didn't want to do. No more dead end jobs for me. It's possible that I would start someting of my own after a while, but never work for someone else again.

    I would set up my own electrical installation business.
    Doing it right and not using $#@!e quality components. The amount of firms I worked for that used $#@! quality switches, sockets, fixtures and fuse boards is unbelievable.

    If I won that much money I would...

    -Disappear the day I was given that amount of cash.
    -Change my identity so that "friends" don't try to find me.
    -Buy a house somewhere beautiful and close to the beach.
    -Drag my mother with me and force her into retirement
    -Study game design, business and open my own video game studio. I will start small of course.
    -Donate most of it to people in need and heck buy all my favorite PSU members PS4's

    I wouldn't work the first year but then I would open a business. Not working for the rest of my life sounds amazing but in reality, it'll be boring.

    My dream job would be game reviewer. No. I wouldn't quit. I'd go from full time to part time.

    Absolutely. In fact, it might get me a lot closer to my dream job than now. I wouldn't have to work for 10 years to get to the top of the hierarchy chain of command. And I'd still earn money too. Mo money mo power.

    it might sound weird but I'd really like to build/manufacture guitars and I would most likely stay at that job even if I won the lottery. I wouldn't keep all that money anyway, I'd split it with my family, give some to charities and treat my friends to a load of things.

    oh and buy a fat off house and build a car collection, some classics and some super cars.

    You go get yourself a Lancia Stratos Rally and an old Bentley.
    And the Lexus LFA Nürburgring edition. Love that car!

    I would never work again. I wouldn't sit at home, either. With that kind of money, I would rarely have a dull moment. There are a lot of places to see and people to meet.

    I doubt it. I'd invest the money so they last for the rest of my life and I'd mostly work voluntarily helping people.

    Absolutely. But my dream job is to race cars, so I'd have the means to do it.

    And I'd have a brand new Jag to practice with.

    I'm not working for anyone when I have 350 mill in the bank. I'd start my own business after getting some schooling in business. Or maybe start my own adult movie site in which I would star in all the movies. Anything as long as there's no one over me.

    I'd finish school. Pay off debts. And pretty much continue life. lol

    It would just be less stressful.
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    I think winning that much money would allow me to get into my dream job in the first place. I'd love to get into motor sports, race touring cars, GT, whatever. If I was already doing that and won the money, hell yes I'd keep doing it.
