A few tips from the world’s richest woman!

The world’s richest woman, Gina Rinehart, the Australian mining tycoon made her money the “old-fashioned way” – she inherited it. Nonetheless, she has some words of advice for less fortunate folks:

“If you’re jealous of those with more money, don’t just sit there and complain,” she said in a magazine piece. “Do something to make more money yourself — spend less time drinking or smoking and socialising, and more time working.”

Sure… that’ll do it! 😉

Ms. Rinehart’s family iron ore prospecting fortune of $30.1 billion makes her the richest woman on earth and the richest Australian of either sex.

Don’t be discouraged! You, too, can be very wealthy! 😉

“There is no monopoly on becoming a millionaire,” she said by way of encouragement.

“Become one of those people who work hard, invest and build, and at the same time create employment and opportunities for others.”

“Piece of cake….” 😉

So… why are people poor?

Rinehart blamed “socialist,” anti-business government policies and urged officials in Australia to lower the minimum wage and cut taxes!

The article in the Los Angeles Times has a photo of Ms. Rinehart.

I, for one, am really glad to hear her ideas. Sometimes, the U.S.-centric nature of news coverage in this country leads us to believe that such irrational views are unique to rich Americans.

It is good to know that, apparently, many rich folks all over the world are similarly afflicted. 😉
