    Three things come to mind, listed with the most likely first:

    1. He does very well in school.
    2. He is very successful with the ladies.
    3. He is a carpenter.

    Maybe some wider context would help. That's something we usually request from posters, as single sentences might be ambiguous or meaningless.
