Thanks to reader H E for sending me the link from the IPA announcing Mrs Rinehart's award.
I've just had a look at the website and the lovely photo of Mrs Rinehart and I wanted to add my own congratulations and thanks to Gina for her work.
Gina Rinehart is reported to have inherited about $70million when her father the late Lang Hancock passed away.
For so many people, that would have been the end of their working life. Feet up, invested at a safe 5% per annum, $3.5M income every year - cruise the world, support charities, have a ball.
But not Mrs Rinehart. She has invested, re-invested, taken risks, employed people and built wonderful businesses.
I am in awe of her resilience and continued faith in doing business in Australia. Thank God for people like Mrs Rinehart.
