Want to be a millionaire? In 2012, Australian mining tycoon Gina Rinehart was officially declared the richest woman in the world, boasting assets of more than $26 billion. Not long after, Rinehart took heat for an article she wrote for the Australian Resources and Investment Magazine, where she suggested that those who wanted what she had should “spend less time drinking or smoking and socializing and more time working.”
“If you’re jealous of those with more money, don’t just sit there and complain. Do something to make more money yourself…”
Obviously, she didn’t run that article through a PR consultant before she submitted it.
