Self-made African multi-millionaire @ 23

At the age of 12, Sandile Shezi was hawking muffins at school and in the ghetto of South Africa. Today at 23 he is a respected self-made millionaire, chief executive and founder of Global Forex Institute.

Global Forex Institute provides affordable and effective foreign exchange training to the masses in South Africa. His company is one of South Africa’s most successful forex traders as well as in forex training.

Sandile took a calculated gamble that paid off handsomely as a young boy, when he used all his school tuition fees for that year to trade on the foreign exchange market.

According to his company’s website, “Most of the training and mentoring provided is free of charge. Global Forex Institute is the only company in South Africa that provides Forex Training not for income but to help curb unemployment. Global Forex Institute makes their money from trading and their results are on the website for everyone to see. The training that Global Forex Institute does is part of the community work and their way of giving something back. Students can link their accounts to the Global Forex Fund and earn while they learn. With over 2000 clients trained Global Forex Institute is truly Africa’s leading Forex training provider.”

In 2014, during one of his numerous pep talk to students, Shezi said, “The road to financial freedom is not easy. You have to want to succeed as much as you want to succeed. “Thinking ahead and investing are the other paramount ingredients for success in business and life.”

He plays tennis and golf with his fellow business associates and friends during his spare time. Shezi said both games keep him entertained and focused.
