He reasoned that if he attempted to rewrite his exams, he would probably fail again. His lack of education was a blessing, turning him into a daring investor, who was willing to venture into business and take the risk. True to his word, he invested the cash into a cellphone business, which began to flourish. And from there onwards, he never looked back.
