I would. Quit my 9-5, start a consulting business and work for myself.

I'd open my own business such as an art gallery and work there, and start my own property management firm. If those didn't work out I've always wanted to be a Park Ranger, but the salary is a turn-off. I wouldn't have to worry about that though.

I would do project that would still amount to "work", but they'd be my own, so it would be very fulfilling. I might take part of it, and create a charitable foundation with it. 10 mill is a lot to just sit on, but then again, some of that should go toward retirement and old age, too.

I would definitely quit the 9 to 5.


Me and the hubs could live very comfortably for the rest of our lives. Would I volunteer my time for something? Yes, probably.

I would work part-time to keep discipline. When people suddenly inherit a huge amount of wealth, they tend to go off the deep end and sometimes even end up broke. Sadly it will never happen to me, unless someone wants to give me millions of dollars in which case don't be shy, please feel free to contact me ASAP

No. There are people who desperately need a job so I wouldn't want to take one that someone else could use.

Sure, I'd still work!

I still want to see how far I can go in my career. I'd still want to be part of a group health plan to control my own expenditure for healthcare. You have to RESPECT that kind of money when you get it.

If I lived in a state where I could be anonymous, I'd live in the same house. If I could not remain anonymous, I might have to rent some place for awhile until my name wasn't so popular, and then buy a home under an LLC shell.

But overall, I'd be happier just holding onto the money, knowing I've got it. My anxiety would probably reduce, I'd still pay off my debt gradually and maintain some sort of credit to have a score.

I wouldn't change much!
