Wealthiest person in Australia, and likely the wealthiest woman in the world.

"If you're jealous of those with more money, don't just sit there and complain. Do something to make more money yourself -- spend less time drinking or smoking and socialising, and more time working... You can't get rich without working hard, taking risks, investing and reinvesting your profits."[1]

Other ways to get rich: Inherit a mining fortune from your father.

[1] Gina Rinehart, "Let's Get Back to Our Roots", Australian Resources and Investment, September 2012. Rinehart's article -- in which she also called for lowering Australia's minimum wage -- attracted immediate global derision. Australia's Treasury Secretary Wayne Swan called it "an insult to the millions of Australian workers who go to work and slog it out to feed the kids and pay the bills."
