How He Managed to Be a Millionaire at The Age of 24: He also Bought a Ferrari at 25

At the age of 23, Sandile Shezi is one of the youngest millionaires in South Africa.

From his early beginnings selling muffins in high school (something he was laughed at for), to trading in all the money that was supposed to be for his education, Shezi has made a big move that has turned him into a businessman and millionaire.
Shezi took a risky move and became the youngest millionaire in South Africa, namely: Forex trading, an over-the-counter market in which the currencies of the world are traded. He was raised by both parents (teachers) and is from an ‘average Joe’ family.

Forex Trading, Making Money On The Internet

“Inside every rich man is a poor kid that followed his dreams,” he says on his Facebook account
He grew up in the same Durban township as his role model Sandile Zungu. Zungu, who is the executive chairman of Zungu Investments Company Limited, did a program in global leadership at the prestigious Harvard university. “If he can do it, why can’t I?” Shezi said during an interview with CCTV Africa.

“It is not a lot of young people who can make it out of this township and do well for themselves.”

According to a News24 interview, Shezi mentioned that after selling muffins he started selling clothes, which he says taught him a lot about business and handling rejection, as it was a door-to-door sales. He decided to drop out of university during his third year to trade full time, without his parents knowing. He mentions that his parents at the time were disappointed with him for dropping out, but he did it to pursue his dreams, and now they remain fully supportive of him.

“People always say Sandile you are such an inspiration, who inspires you? [My answer] Poverty…”

Look at his cars:

He is now the co-owner and founder of the Global Forex Institute which aims at providing affordable, effective Forex training that works, to the masses. Global Forex Institute empowers the mass on doing the same thing that he did and educating them about Forex.
