If money were not an issue (you had all you could ever want), would you keep on the same job/career path you are on now?

The majority of the team I'm on at work play the lottery as a group. We joke that the two or three who don't play will be the only ones left when we win because the rest of us will be gone. When I first started in this industry (with a different employer) I worked with some very sharp people and learned quite a bit. I actually looked forward to going to work every morning.
Now I look forward to retirement.

I went with "other", because I have multiple jobs, and here's the breakdown on those:

Office job - I really dislike this job. It's easy, but that makes it boring. It's for a company I don't like, and it's really just to keep the bills paid. If I didn't need it, I'd quit. If my other jobs take off enough, I'll quit. Until then, I stick it out.

Renaissance Faire/Craft Shop - I would not mind doing this full-time, enough that I can support myself, or just for fun, if money were no issue.

Camming/Selling Content - THIS is the job I love. Because of the office job, and family living with me, I can't do it as often as I want to, but it's fun, it's empowering, and I would do nothing else if I could. It's my extra money, but I would love for this to be my main job with faire on the side.

I DETEST my current job!! retail management? UGH. I would love to get out and do something else, something that's actually doing some good in the world would be nice - but barring that, something that pays better! haha!

Oddly - I would keep doing what I'm doing, that is nothing! I'm one of the 1.7 million who lost unemployment benefits on Dec 29th.

It sure would be a lot more fun with even a little more money!

I'm already doing what I want to do - returned to college just for the fun of learning.

I would be working towards being a Sex Educator, researching, writing articles, and planning workshops 24/7.

Do you mean if we had all the money we could ever want and NOT HAVE TO WORK ? Or do you mean we could afford to learn a different career ?

I have 2 jobs. I would quit one of them and just do my massage therapy job but would only do it part time. I think it is healthy to have a job or volunteer position to do regularly. I know I would become unhappy if I didn't have something meaningful to go do each day

This is a hard one. I work with the elderly, something that I find very rewarding and I love my job but I absolutely can not stand the management. They run the place with profit in mind, which does actually have a negative impact on the care the residents receive which beyond pisses me off.

I would do photography. It takes a lot of money to get started and keep afloat till it takes off so that is not in the cards for me right now.

I would continue restoring the motorcycles, hotshotting log loads and would expand into website design and more involved site ownership. I would stop all work with my sign business!!!

Instead of working I would be a stay at home mom, I think.

You don't hear that much anymore. It's nice to hear, actually.

It usually is. Money simply opens doors to more options.

I'd go back to school and get a masters in Creative Writing.

If I had all the money I could ever want....? I like my job, but I'm pretty sure that I'd retire or at least reduce my hours significantly.

This is a great question...I think if I had all the money I'd ever need/want I'd probably forget my current plan on opening up an online shop once we move and go get myself some college degrees to become a veterinarian.
I wouldn't want to not be doing...something, I'd start to feel a bit useless, y'know?

I do not work due to health issues. What I would do if I had a job and had all the money I needed is stay with the job provided I loved it, or else, I'd just pursue every interest I have!

That includes tons of arts and crafts; buy and learn more musical instruments; organic gardening improvements; prepping and self-sufficiency improvements; travel; and the best of all, learning! I would take classes in everything, forever! Yes, I would be a perpetual student and intern, but not have to bother with grades or making a living off what I learn! I'd learn about everything I wanted and in depth...ah, heaven!
