A very hardworking 54-year-old Chinese mother of two named Yu Youzhen has a truly remarkable outlook on life. She is a millionaire who has a substantial fortune as well as real estate properties but refuses to quit her daily job as a street sweeper.
She has been a street sweeper for the past 14 years and is really proud of her responsibility at keeping the environment clean. Her motivation for not indulging herself by using the money to live a luxurious life is that she does not want to set a bad example for her children who are both employed as well.
Back in 1998 Yu Youzhen received a government compensation after the government acquired the land she owned. Youzhen received 21 apartments which are now estimated at a total of $1.5 million. She could be considered a real estate tycoon with such amount of property in her possession.
Although she could just retire and do nothing for the rest of her life, the 54-year-old mother is admirably diligent and believes that laziness gives rise to all kinds of dreadful habits.
