    self-made man

    In terms of "self-made man", are these all possible? Is the last one proper using a to-infinitive?
    ======================================
    But it was impressive to success for himself by advertise.
    * But it was quite impressive that he made his fortune by his own efforts in the advertising field.
    * But it was quite impressive that he succeeded on his own in the advertising field.
