What does it mean to be self-made? It's not just about having money, but financial empowerment is where it begins. It means getting out of survival mode, in which you are one problem away from catastrophe. It means changing your mind-set from instant gratification to goal orientation. It means being able to sleep at night without worry. It means being rich in every way: rich in money, rich in family, rich in love, rich in time - abundant!
