AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Americans long to do something they love for a living. According to a poll conducted by YouGov, and commissioned by Volusion, the only ecommerce platform on the market built specifically for the needs of small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), 67% of Americans say if they won the lottery, they would still work if they could do something about which they're passionate. Nearly eight in 10 (79%) millennials would do the same. It also seems American workers have their head in the clouds, especially while on the clock; 60% of full-timers say that have spent time at work daydreaming about a job or career they'd rather pursue.
This survey was conducted online within the United States by YouGov on behalf ofVolusionfrom Oct. 4-8 among 2,655 respondents age 18 and up.
"Today's workforce is focused and determined, but that drive may not be tied to their current job – the majority of Americans spend time at work thinking about something else they'd rather pursue," said Kevin Sproles, CEO and founder of Volusion. "We've all heard if you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life and these findings show that many people agree. Most workers long to start a career or side business they're passionate about, to the point that they'd do so even if they won the lottery."
