For DJL Dato Jonathan Lim, though, success was not always guaranteed. He came from a typical home with normal means and a thoroughly normal upbringing. From there, he was fortunate enough to be able to study hard to make it through school and college. It is from there that his story truly starts.
Becoming a Millionaire
The road to the first million dollars was a hard one for DJL Jonathan Lim. While he was studying, he happened to get involved with online trading.
