Get inspired: Meet 23-year-old millionaire Sandile Shezi

I know we all wish that we could be millionaires in our 20s, but could you actually visualize yourself making that happen? If you can, what steps would you take?


For 23-year-old Sandile Shezi, this dream is a reality. After deciding to drop out of college to pursue his passion of trading currencies, he quickly rose to the top of his industry and beat his initial goal of becoming a millionaire by the time he was 30-years-old.

The business that he created is called Global Forex Trading Institute. 

Here is a brief overview of what they offer:

Global Forex Institute was established by Sandile Shezi and George van der Riet to bring affordable, effective Forex training that works, to the masses. In fact most of the training and mentoring provided is done so 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.

Prior to reading about Sandile’s story, I had absolutely no idea what Forex trading was. Here is a brief synopsis about the industry (Click HERE for more)

Forex, also known as foreign exchange, FX or currency trading, is a decentralized global market where all the world’s currencies trade. The forex market is the largest, most liquid market in the world with an average daily trading volume exceeding $5 trillion. There is no central exchange as it trades over the counter. Forex trading allows you to buy and sell currencies, similar to stock trading except you can do it 24 hours a day, five days a week, you have access to margin trading, and you gain exposure to international markets.


Sandile’s story just goes to show that if you put all of your effort, and time into making your dreams into a reality, that it will happen for you. And, it may even exceed your expectations!
