The internet is in flames with Forbes Magazine’s major faus pas in describing Kylie Jenner a “self-made” billionaire.
Forbes deserves a tongue-lashing at least for perpetuating the decidedly FALSE myth that someone with a wealthy background can even come close to being “self-made”.
NO ONE in this modern age can claim that title.
Everyone on the planet is benefitting from so many contributions from other humans, nature and All That Is, trying to claim self-made status is arrogance at best, stupid at worse.

There’s a saying that goes: “show me a successful person and I’ll show you a turtle on a fence post”.

Forbes and anyone claiming self-made status needs to go back and rethink their perspectives.
No one is Self-made anymore. It’s likely no one ever was.
