- Kgopotso Mmutlane went from living a small shack to buying a double story home
- At the age on just 23, he already established himself as a millionaire
- But, his journey was not easy and he lost a lot of money along the way
We all love reading success stories, especially when it is about someone who came from nothing and made something of themselves.
An example of such a story is 23-year-old Kgopotso Mmutlane, a young man who came from humble beginnings and managed to turn himself into a millionaire.
Mmutlane was born in a small village outside Burgersfort Town in the Limpopo province. He added his family was very poor and they lived in a small shack.
“I was born in a poor family. I grew up in a very warm Christian family where we were all staying in a small shack with both parents.”, he said.
However, he added his dad always provided and not one night did he go to sleep hungry- but, seeing other people live in beautiful homes while his family stayed in a shack motivated him to succeed in life.
At first, he secretly pursued a music career, performing as a DJ- which earned him the nickname “DJ Coach Tsekeleke”.
According to the young entrepreneur, he hid his music career from his parents because they were worried something would happen to him on the streets or in the clubs.
The Citizen reported he then turned his focus to Forex trading after a friend, Merika Mphogo, introduced him to it in 2016, while he was still a pupil at Leolo High School.
According to Mmutlane, he went to research Forex trading after his conversation with Mphogo, where he saw an opportunity to make a lot of money.
Today, he is one of South Africa’s youngest self-made millionaires- all thanks to Forex trading.
But, his journey was not without its challenges. In the first stages of trading, Mmutlane lost R15 000, the money he would have used to study further.
He realized Forex Trading was a lot harder than people ‘sold’ it to be, and he needed the necessary knowledge and mentorship to succeed in it.
With the right keys to succeed, Mmutlane gave it another shot and he has not looked back since. Briefly.co.za learned he then went on to start up his own company, Forex Broker Killer Institution- which helps others achieve their dreams.
