No he didn’t win the lottery!
Robert Mfune, a college student from Southampton spent his days working long shifts at McDonalds at the age of 16, before realising that there was some serious money to be made in binary trading.
Fed up with minimum wage, Robert took the bull by the horns and began to learn the ins and outs of the industry and in little over a year, he started trading aged just 17!
Robert was so successful in his mission to prosper, that during his first year of trading, he managed to make a pretty substantial wodge of cash and buy his first car – a Bentley Continental GT for £190K!!
Speaking about his car he said: ‘When I was 18, I got a Bentley but when I was 19 I decided to get it wrapped in a gold body kit. I was going to get a different car every year but I thought why not just change my Bentley.
‘I sent it to Kream Developments who gave it a custom body kit and wrapped it in gold. No-one has got this, it’s the only one in the country.’
In true entrepreneur style, he’s kept his eyes open for other business opportunities and has gone on to invest money in coffee shops and property, as well as developing an overseas property portfolio in his home country of South Africa.
It’s clear that Robert has the right attitude and believes that anything is possible and is willing to take ballsy risks to help achieve his goals. He adds ‘It’s just like going to uni with the fees you pay and loans you take out, if you’re going to make it big you’ve got to suffer for a few years.’
So your supersize lesson for success this week…. is to look out for opportunities that have the potential to change your life and your business!
