The norm might be considered a chap I know who failed completely at school, lived in a really bad estate in Rochdale, left with no qualifications..... and yes he's probably a millionaire I'd say - drives an Aston anyway.
So, he's achieved such wealth purely through legitimate means, and by being a decent and fair employer?
In my experience, such 'self made millionaires' have rarely got there by just 'hard work' alone. It certainly helps if you're a nasty bastard ready to shit on someone else if it profits you. And have a good working knowledge of how to pay as little tax as possible, exploit every loophole etc.
I know a bloke who is significantly wealthy. On the surface, he's a decent, pillar of society hard working grafter etc etc. A devout Christian, 'does a lot of work for charity (that he doesn't like to talk about mate) etc.
Truth is, that he's a ruthless single-minded **** who has scammed, conned and fiddled his way to 'success'. He draws a 'salary' of just a few thousand a year, from his company (based offshore, surprise surprise), and regularly boasts of how he pays just 10% tax. And he made most of his fortune through public service contract work. IE, from taxpayers.
Oh, and he's a Labour voter.
I'm glad I don't work for him.
