Yu Youzhen, Chinese Millionaire, Works As Street Cleaner To Set Good Example For Her Children.

I commend this mom for teaching them the value of community and staying grounded. Since 1998, 53 year old Chinese real estate mogul Yu Youzhen wakes up everyday at 3 am to sweep the roadway for $228 month. Why does she do it you ask? To set a good example for her kids. Not too many millionaires would be willing to do this unless court ordered. “I want to be a role model for my son and daughter. I don’t want to sit around idly and eat away my fortune,” Yu told local newspaper Wuhan Evening News, according to the SCMP. Yu refuses to give up her contract job because she believes that “Work is not just about the salary, it makes one focused,” Yu told the Wuhan Evening News, according to the Telegraph. “Laziness gives rise to all sorts of bad habits.” Don’t worry though her two kids have salary jobs, but she has given them an ultimatum that she will relinquish her real estate to the government, if her children don’t continue to work, local media note. Kudos to this mom for setting a good example for all kids everywhere. More parents should take a page out her book you might be surprised at the result.
