Sandile Shezi is SA’s Youngest Self-made Millionaire

sandile shezi

Sandile Shezi is a typical young adult in his twenties, like many of his peers, but unlike his colleagues, he is a self-made millionaire and a businessman mainly involved in Forex trading.

Shezi was such a success that he was pretty much the “poster child” of South African young self-made millionaires, and he became a motivating speaker, a globetrotter, and a little bit of 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 the modest beginnings of selling muffins and clothing at 12 years of age, he decided to take a risky and daring step that saw him use the school money that was intended for his university fees and began trading without his parent’s knowledge.

While he left school, he later received a national diploma in Public Relations, Advertising and Strategic Communications from Durban University of Technology and a Global Leadership Program from Harvard.

What inspires in his story is the huge gamble Sandile took, particularly given that it was his parent’s money for his school fees that he used to invest in a venture that didn’t guarantee returns.

He has become quite an expert in trading high-risk forex trading, and his business has built a name for itself as one that offers reliable and successful forex trading that is open to the masses of South Africa.
