Simon Nixon found university education of accounting boring and dropped out. But today, he is one of the top millionaires of the UK. He is the man who founded MoneySuperMarket in 1993 while still pursuing his university education. He is not the son of a millionaire, an is one of the very few people who have gathered so much wealth and success before the age of 40. Simon is a Ferrari lover, but likes to keep his personal life away from media.
Simon got enrolled into an accountancy course in Nottingham University, but he dropped out without completing it. In an interview, he said ‘I hated it. It was boring’. Realizing the lack of a way to evaluate and compare mortgage deals, he made up his mind to launch a business where users could do price comparison. He setup a magazine that listed best-buy tables, and sent them out for free. As it got popular, he stared charging £11 for a fortnightly subscription. Within a couple of years, he had started earning £10,000 each month.
