Learning Skills As He Goes: Anthony Agyeman Learned His Many Entrepreneurial Talents As He Began New Businesses

Anthony Agyeman is a businessman born in Boston and raised in Texas. From a very young age, he felt that school was not for him. He always thought that there is much more to life than having a degree. For many people, this is the case. In our school systems, there is a lot of emphasis on continuing school and going to college, but that is not the right path for everyone.
I was born in Boston, in Massachusetts, but after moving because my mother was moving for work, I ended up growing up in Houston, Texas. While in high school I knew that school was not for me. I knew there’s a lot more to life and business than going to school and getting a degree.” Anthony says.
Anthony has a great entrepreneurial mindset, something innate that has helped him to be as successful as he is today. As a teenager, that entrepreneurial spirit led him to travel all over the United States doing competitive games while running Community Cinema Channel on YouTube, which helped him earn extra money. Although he was living these experiences, something inside him wanted to experience what it felt like to have a full-time job.
I still wanted to experience what it would be like to have a real job, so I worked in several places to see if I liked it. I worked at Olive Garden as a busser, I worked at Domino’s as a delivery man, and I even did some labor jobs.” Anthony explains.
For Anthony, these experiences were not the most pleasant as he was not building on his dream, but on someone else’s. He knew that working for someone else under someone else’s terms was not for him. He wanted to be his own boss and move away from having a normal nine to five job.
I hated having to listen to someone else and having to eat at a certain time and I couldn’t do certain things I wanted to do and honestly at the end of the day I knew I wasn’t building on my dreams, but was helping someone else with their dreams and business, and I would rather put that same work and effort into my own dreams and business.” Anthony states.
Finally, after Anthony finished school he and some friends managed to create a clothing brand company that, soon after, was receiving more than 500 orders a week thanks to the help of influential people. This was the perfect kind of job for Anthony because he knew he loved to create and was excited to be his own boss.
We created the clothing brand called ‘Murderous Clothing’ and in two weeks the company was receiving more than 500 orders a week. I thought that the best way to market the clothes to a large group of people is to get influential people into the clothes. I got people like Lil Pump, Ronnie Banks, JC & Kian, ACE Family, and a lot more on my clothes who then promoted to their audience, which brought a lot of customers to the business.” Anthony recounts.
After the clothing brand, Anthony decided to make money online. To do that, he learned everything he could from watching videos on Youtube. He learned the skills of dropshipping, which he mastered very quickly. In addition, he was able to expand his business proficiency in his original clothes selling business.
After finishing the business I was looking for ways to make money online and that’s when I stumbled on marketing and dropshipping. So I started getting into dropshipping because I already had a good gist of it and now I didn’t have to touch the product. I watched a lot of YouTube videos to try to learn as much information as possible about dropshipping and then I created my own dropshipping business.” Anthony added.
With the help of a mentor, Anthony’s business “took off” to such an extent that seeing his business prosper he decided to start helping other people make their businesses prosper as well, so he started a digital marketing agency. He had been able to easily craft a massive amount of success for himself, so he thought why not make another business out of it?
While doing all this I had empathy and thought instead of doing this for myself, why not help other businesses drive traffic to their businesses and bring them more customers? So I started a Digital Marketing Agency and started making ads on Facebook, Google, and YouTube for these businesses and bringing traffic to their platforms. After running the agency for a year, I was finally able to take it to a 6-figure agency, which was a very good achievement for me.” Anthony shares.
As Anthony continues to grow and innovate, he now owns a six figure marketing agency called “Marketing Wizards”, an ATM business called “Pure ATMs”, an upcoming brand called “VeganGummies”, and an education business called “OnlineMoney.” To find out more about Anthony Agyeman, follow him on Instagram and Twitter
