I don't believe in "self-made"

Have you ever heard of a billionaire entrepreneur who started and ran a company all by her/him self?

A friend of mine called me up this week and said "Ash I was thinking maybe you should just start targeting more of the self-made billionaires to get on your show." I asked, "what do you mean by 'self-made?'" My friend couldn't define what that meant. What my friend meant to say was quite the opposite: A billionaire who wouldn't have been able to get where they are without the people that joined their company/organization, their journey, and their ultimate vision.

It got me thinking.
