Has anyone won a lottery that is life changing? Did you quit work completely or did you take up a lax job to keep busy and earn modestly.

I didn’t win the lottery but my my family is comfortable. I still work because I like what I do. If I ever get bored might go back to school and try something else. Having that kind of freedom makes any job chill.

Not me, but watching David Bromstead’s show gets me thinking about it. I’d like to say I’d keep working and stay in the same house. But a new kitchen and master bath would make me very happy. I like my job. I’m exhausted. But I enjoy it generally.

I have thought about it. For me, I’d quit my job and travel alone for a year to understand what I’ll do next in my new life.

I won the DV lottery back in 2002. Of course, that only make me work forever.

Greencard 🤭 I'm a winner too!

If you won, you should hire a competent investment and tax expert. Continue mck job and make it a lax job. Just coast. If they fire you, you still have the FU money

No but in all honesty I’d probably just focus on day trading and pick up some contract consulting work just to have the chance of going to offices, interacting with people, etc.

I won the lottery getting a job when I graduated college in '03. People forget that right after the bubble burst, everyone closed up shop in recruiting. Made me look good after that on my resume.

I recently left a pretty good summer internship to take a full time job and I regret it. I have been losing sleep over it all summer.

Despite getting interviews at good companies, nothing is making me feel better about this situation. I don’t know how to handle the thoughts racing in my mind.

Secured 750 (Q:49, V:42) in GMAT. Targeting to apply for EMBA in 1-2 years. 9 YOE. Current role: Senior Manager. Target universities: M7, INSEAD and LBS. Question is, for GMAT exam I just focused on Q & V part, and skipped IR & AWA part (IR: 1 & AWA: 3). Now does it make sense to reattempt with a focus on other parts and risk 750 scores, or you think it’s not needed, as for EMBA’s GMAT score is not the only deciding factor and 750 score is enough for most universities irrespective of IR & AWA.
