The CEO of appliance company Winning Group John Winning has lashed out at millennials’ poor work ethic and “crazy” expectations, despite being a millennial himself.
John, who took over the company from his dad after his grandfather created it over a century ago, seems to consider himself an expert on hard work, despite being incredibly privileged.
It appears Mr Winning doesn’t quite realise that life is a lot easier when your family owns a multi-million dollar company.
John has achieved a number of great things in his 35 years of life, including starting discount white goods website Appliances Online.
To put it in his own words, he “knew nothing about technology, management or even retail” before taking on the leadership role.
According to Millennial Career, more than half of millennials would prefer to make $30,000 at a job they love, than work a job they hate for $100,000.
It’s not impossible to be successful or “self-made” if you weren’t brought up with a CEO father, but it’ll definitely take a lot more work. »
