25 Year old Entrepreneur Lesiba Mothupi is Impacting Millions
Today we’d like to introduce you to Lesiba .
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
I grew up in Lephalale which is a small town in the province of Limpopo in South Africa , growing up I had to go through racism and discrimination which played a major part in me developing great self confidence.
I decided that I will not be promoting any actions that can cause pain to myself and anyone involved which led me to start skateboarding at the age of 12.
While I got into skating I needed money to sustain my career and at the time my family and I were going through a tough time which led us to live in a garage for over a year. I then developed a strong urge to make money young.
I started my very first business which was selling sweets in school , since then I fell in-love with entrepreneurship and all the obstacles it came with. By the time I was 18 I decided to not go any further with my education but to instead invest more into personal development and find ways to make money while doing so.
Searching for ways to make money on the internet I cam across the world on currency trading and since then I knew I wanted to be a trader , But what happened was that I had to enroll in multiple seminars , watch hundreds of youtube videos and even go as deep as purchasing mentorship programs just so I am able to increase my knowledge learning about day trading.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
Growing up we did not really have much so it was very tough of me to even have the initial funds to help me start my business , When you come from the bottom you do not even have resources or tools to go after your dreams but I did not let that happen.
At the age 16 I got involved in activities that could have led me to jail at the time and I was so active in the streets. I faced so many challenges of seeing myself lose friends and closed ones at a young age.
Going into business I had to sacrifice so many hours using public wifi and so many days locked myself up in the room to focus on acquiring knowledge which led me to cut of most of my friends at the time and as-well change my habits, going from a low level of education to reading a books daily and consistently working on improving myself.
I remember when I had what seemed like my first success , I had dedicated over 12 months into collecting data from the markets and created a portfolio whereby I showed my performance to potential investors at the time. I had two friends that believed in me and my mom maxed out her credit card and helped me with $200. To some its very little money but it meant so much to me at the time to have someone believe in me.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
I have been actively trading the markets for the past 6 years and I take each challenge as a lesson for improvement , while trading I developed a passion for teaching and education which I needed to find something to help me go through tough times because if you just chasing the money , there will not be any fulfilment in what you can achieve. I decided sharing my knowledge on YouTube and today have over tens of millions of views and over 240k YouTube subscribers.
I saw a strong need of more educators and helping more people know about trading in general which lead to me to start an academy named Forex Chasers which aims to help individuals master the day trading , I also focus on growing successful traders so they are able to teach their knowledge to those that seek to learn.
I have been fortunate enough to use some of the capital I gained from the markets to create my own side hustle which I have an apparel company and as well recently got into real estate by purchasing land.
Using trading as my main vehicle of raising funds I was able to generate over a million dollars online from mu businesses collectively and I still learn on ways I can improve and grow others.
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
The most important thing one can do is to believe in themselves , I mean no one would believe in you if you yourself do not believe in yourself. Little Lesiba Mothupi believed that I deserve to be in the position I am now in even when I was still in school and would talk about how I would be successful at a young age.
If your mind can think it and your heart can feel it , It means that it can surely come into reality only if you apply consistency in what you do and never agree to failure as failure is just another reason of why you should try something different.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Success means abundance , Having that freedom to be able to do anything at your time and as-well doing anything you desire without having the mindset of lack , limitation or scarcity.
What’s next for you?
We are going day by day and I am growing my team to 50 mentors by July 2023 in the Forex Chasers academy just so we can reach more people and continue impacting masses. I just got started in public speaking and will be doing more of these just so I can reach anyone both online and offline.
with the land I just purchased over 5 Hectares in size I am looking into turning that into either a lodge or something that will add value to the community and as-well create jobs.
I am growing my YouTube channel with more high quality content that will help viewers be able to learn as much as possible for my videos.
