Background story:

Shezi has had the heart of an entrepreneur since a young age. His first business venture was selling muffins at high school, for which he was laughed at and ridiculed. He sold the muffins for pocket money and this got him started on a long journey in the business world. The young man’s yearning for more lead him to make what many people would consider a foolish decision.

He began trading during his first few years of college. He traded his tuition fees for foreign exchange. He dropped out during his third year (without his parents knowing) to focus on trading full time. This is not the kind of risks that parents frown on, but somehow, Sandile’s mischief paid off in grand style.

He later admitted that this was a very big risk and that he will never advice young people to try what he did then in his naivety, but fortunately for him, his gamble paid off big time, and he quickly saw enormous success in the forex market, which immediately catapulted him from nowhere, to a net worth of roughly $2.3 million dollars at the age of 23.

To appease his parents, he returned back to school and finished his program, and also did a program in global leadership at the prestigious Harvard University.

He now focuses on forex trading full time as the CEO and co-founder of the Global Forex Institute. The Global Forex Institute was designed by Shezi and George van der Riet to provide others with affordable and effective Forex training. Shezi hopes to extend the same opportunities that have been given to him to others.

Sandile Shezi has made it clear that his company was not set up for the sole reason of making money. Thus, he trains students in the firm for free. He says this is his way of giving back as demanded under Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR). He says this will also help to reduce the unemployment rates in his environment.

Surprisingly, the young fan of financial freedom studied nothing in business management. Sandile self-educated himself on forex trading via the internet.

He is addressed as one of the high risk forex traders in South Africa.

In 2014 his company won the African Forex Expo award for being the best training and education provider. Sandile’s forex firm has trained over 2000 people, all for free.

Sandile Shezi is a motivational speaker as well. He has featured in several educational forums. He is famous for using the expression,
“Why work for money when money can work for you!”

In his spare time, the young millionaire loves to play golf and tennis with business colleagues.
