Boniface Ogunti was a young entrepreneur who refused to let anything get his way. At 16, he was already working hard to make sure that he had money to get by. At 17 and 18 he was making thousands of dollars. He decided to come to America to pursue his dreams further and become an entrepreneur.
“My name is Boniface Ogunti. I started in business at a young age 16 year old. When I was 16 years old, I used to airbrush sneakers for people in my town and then when I was 17 to 18 years old, I also started a recording studio with $2,000 of the money I made from airbrushing shoes and then when I was 18 years old I got into sales selling tv service door to door and in big box retailers. When I was 19 years old, I was also selling car insurance and when I was selling car insurancers someone told me about selling products online. I got into selling products online. That’s how I started my online store and the first year running my online store, I made $2.5 million dollars using Facebook ads. I came to the United States of America because there was a war in my country in West Africa Liberia. When I moved to the United States, I left my mom in Africa and I was living with my grandma. I went to high school like everyone else, but I dropped out to start my online business. I saw my mom on my 24th birthday on february 18, 2020. I was born February 18 1996.” Boniface recounts.
Boniface now runs an e-commerce business as well as a shipping business. He has had many challenges in his path that have prevented him from doing his best. Boniface conquered them all, but the most crucial part of him getting through the obstacles was finding a good mentor to help lead him through the tough parts of the business.
“I run an e-com business and also a shipping/ transportation business in my country, West Africa Liberia and also a consulting business education every people how to escape their 9 to 5 job. My biggest challenges were the resources that I needed, as in a mentor who already went through the ups and downs and learning from them. When I was starting, I tried to figure it out on my own and it was hard; it wasn’t until I met my first mentor. Having a mentor is the key to shortcut your success. Everyone needs a mentor.” Boniface explains.
The other important aspect to Boniface’s success was having a good mindset. This is the key to many successful businesses. You must have an entrepreneurial mindset in order to get far in the business world. This is because the business world is not like the normal nine to five and takes a different approach.
“Mindset is everything in starting a business, Business is a mirror whatever you do will always reflect in your business. People don’t have business problems, they have life problems that reflect in their business.” Boniface states.
Boniface’s next projects involve a lot of hard work in his home country. He is not slowing down despite the difficulties in the world right now. He is motivated by his desire to help his home country.
“For my next project this year, I’m investing in Africa. I’m building a luxury home in West Africa Liberia and building a middle income home for the people. I want to make an impact in my country.” Boniface says.
