I would go crazy too with nothing to do!  I would work, probably as a travel photographer.  If I were a billionaire, I would also probably start a charity too : )  I’m looking forward to hearing others’ responses!

I wouldn’t stay at my current job, and I would probably take off about 6 months, but after that I don’t think I could stand just staying home.  I would want to work somewhere because I enjoy it.

I would be able to have my dream horse farm. I’d want to train horses.

I’d also want to do some charity/volunteer work, most likely horse related as well as a fair bit of travel.

If I was a billionaire with access to the cash, then I’d make volunteer work my full-time job.

Millionare – I’d probably work still.  Somewhere more fun, however.

Billionare?!? Hell to the no.  I’d travel.  Relax.  Paint.  Play with my dog.  I would not be one of those people who would get bored.

Hell NO! At least not for the first few years. I’d travel, work on myself (get a personal trainer so I can look like J. Lo), party all the time, and enjoy the part of NYC I’ve never been able to. Maybe I’d get bored and want to work, but I think I’d do something fluffy without much commitment so I could jet off whenever I wanted to!

If I had earned a billion+ dollars, I imagine I’d be the type of person who HAD to work!

I love my current job and would probably stay here for 6 – 12 months while I ramped someone to replace me. After that, I think I’d try to get involved working in management of alternative education. I have a real passion for new and different methods of education (Kahn Academy, Montessori, Homeschooling/co-op resources, etc) and would love to have the resources to both be very financially comfortable and put a lot of time/money/attention into that.

It’s a very political type of “volunteer” work and has a lot of money roadblocks, so if money was no issue, that would be a huge factor in being able to accomplish a lot in that area.

HELL no! If I were a billionaire I’m sure I’d have plenty of things to do to fill my time like shop, travel, roll around in Benjamins, etc. In all seriousness though, I’d volunteer my time with causes that I care about. Maybe do some mission work. I’d definitely keep busy but working a 9-5 wouldn’t be in the cards for me.

I would do charity/volunteer work, and I would still work to earn a bit of money and have something to do. I think I’d open a cupcake shop! I would love to do that now but there’s no market for it in my area πŸ™ If I was a billionaire it wouldn’t matter haaha, I could just do what I loved

@redheadem:  I’d probably get a personal trainer and personal chef as well. 

Although if I were riding horses for hours a day every day I might not really need the personal trainer.

If I were a billionaire, I’d be busy doing animal rescue.

Hell no. I’d call this place immediately and be like: “PEACE YA’LL”.

Then I would proceed to do what makes me happy, along with volunteering/giving money and time to organizations that mean a lot to me. Or start my own.

Either way, I would never step a toe in this building again!
