In 1999, I had messed up my investment portfolio in shares.

I was stuck in share bazaar and was also losing funds. So I turned to my father for advice.

I asked him what I should do.

He simply said: 'Jua kissi ka na hua' (Gambling doesn't work for anyone).

That day I sold off all my shares and never looked back.

From that day, I continued to rise.
