According to the Cambridge dictionary, “self-made” stands for “rich and successful as a result of your own work and not because of family money”. So, a self-made person is someone who has become rich all by himself. They start with an at least zero bank balance and then find their way to billions.

I now want to focus on giving back to people and doing things that I’m passionate about.”
Kylie further said that she doesn’t question her being called a self-made billionaire in spite of what her critics say.
