It's not often you see a self-made millionaire doing a lowly perceived job... Yet, one woman, Yu Youzhen, who is worth around $1.5 million US dollars in China... works as a street cleaner, where she gets paid just over $50 a week...

Why does she do this?

The reason she does it is to teach her kids the value of hard work!

I happen to know that this is a real problem that many self-made wealthy people have. They often have trouble teaching their children the value of hard work - and this worries them...

Yu Youzhen certainly has a unique solution...!

(She made her money in property development.)

Here are a couple articles and a video about Yu Youzhen...

Best wishes,


P.S. In my eyes, all jobs are respectable...
