You didn't say why you didn't finish either course. One may work hard, but if the course doesn't suit your interests and abilities, you may fail. But when you say didn't finish, that sounds like just giving up.
Maybe it'd be a good idea for you to arrange to see a suitable psychologist ( not all do this ) who can give you a wide range of tests of your intersts and various abilities, and advise you on what you might be really good at ( and it might not be the fields you have chosen so far ).
You may also need help ( UNISA ought to provide study counsellors ) to learn to learn, to get back into the habits of studying, which one soon forgets after leaving school.
Maybe the bad headaches when you try to read are because of tension, and your worrying too much about the course. A psychologist or counsellor could also help you to learn to relax when you need to, and this will also aid your studies.
Dont rush off to start your own business - that's in no way an easier option, and many people fail at that too, and it can be much more expensive. Unless one has real talents in a specific field of business, AND real experience gained while working for someone else, people very rarely make a success out of starting their own business.
