Nine years ago, Tirabassi, of Hamilton, Ontario Canada, cashed in her winning Powerball ticket and collected $10,569,000.10.

There’s a saying that goes: “Idle hands are the devil’s workshop.” That old adage explains why so many wealthy people volunteer to work for free.

Instant millionaires find out all too quickly that money does not bring happiness or hope — and without hope life is meaningless.
