What does that mean?
That means you made your own money, your own group, your own business, you, you and you. You can credit your success to you, not the other way around.
For example, The Church of Scientology, LRH was a self made man, he put this religion and church on the map.
David Miscavige was just at the right place, right time when he died and took over. David Miscavige uses this church, this religion, LRH's research and then takes credit for it. If something goes wrong, then shifts the blame onto the founder, no responsibility or accountability for his actions.
Self made men, all take responsibility and accountability for their actions. And that's a turn on. Power, Responsibility and Control. Or KRC, Knowledge, Responsibility and Control
