Liberian-born, US-based business magnate, Boniface Ogunti has been widely reported to have made over $2.5 million dollars at the young age of 21. He is also reported to be worth in the excess of $36 million dollars. And all he does is run Facebook ads for eCommerce.
Boniface failed at 7 ventures before he finally experienced success. Boniface admits that if he could change anything about his past he would not have started all of those foolish business endeavors that ultimately ended in failure. He blames desperation for the doomed business ventures that drained his resources, wasted his time, and hijacked his focus.
In a recent interview while sharing the story of his business journey which was dotted with uncertainties, Ogunti revealed number of times he failed before good fortune smiled on him.
“I started in business at a young age of 16 years. 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. 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 insurance someone told me about selling products online. I failed at 7 business ventures before I found my path,” Ogunti said.
“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,” he adds.
Today, Boniface is the founder of the Advanced Client Acquisition™ Certification Program – a global movement of men and women from over 127+ countries who help entrepreneurs master the art of advertising. Together, he and his students have generated tens of millions of dollars in sales across dozens of industries.
Outside of his Advanced Client Acquisition™ community, Boniface is seen by many as a thought-leader in the personal development / business world. His YouTube channel is growing to become one of the top channels in the business category with hundreds of videos. He has a large following with over 2.5 million + fans across his social media fan pages – growing by thousands every day.
From the age of 13, Boniface grew up watching Michael Jordan movies and started playing basketball. Boniface said seeing Michael Jordan fly in the air made him realize he had greatness within him.
One quote Boniface like from Michael was “I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.
Boniface said that, that’s the story of his life because anytime he failed at something he didn’t look at it as a good or bad situation. He looked at it as an event because if the situation was bad it helped him identify what he wanted so he can easily make a change.
