Sandile Shezi is a typical young adult in his 20’s like many of his contemporaries, but unlike his friends he is a self-made millionaire and businessman primarily dealing in Forex trading.

Shezi has been such a hit that he is pretty much the “poster boy” for South African young self made millionaires, and has become a motivational speaker, globetrotter and somewhat a celebrity.

His company won the African Forex Expo Award for being the best forex training provider in 2014.

Sandile’s meteoric rise to the top…

From humble beginnings of selling muffins at age 12 and clothes he decided to take a risky yet bold move which saw him use the school money that was meant for his university fees and started trading without his parent’s knowledge.

Although he quit school he later acquired a national diploma in Public Relations, Advertising and Applied Communications at the Durban University of Technology, and a Global Leadership Program from Harvard.

What makes his story inspiring is the big gamble Sandile took, especially considering that it was his parent’s money meant for his school fees that he was using to invest in a venture that didn’t guarantee returns.

He has become somewhat an expert is the trading of high-risk forex trading and his company has created a name for itself as one which provides affordable and effective forex trading that is accessible to the masses of South Africa.
