New Orleans – the city where fun and wonder are the norms, and where art and culture abound. One of the jewels in the crown of the Louisiana state, the city remains saturated in the festivities the entire year. With its distinctive music, Creole cuisine, unique dialects, and annual celebrations and festivals, New Orleans reflects all these things that might be buried under the sands of time in other parts of the world.
But the city’s salient features don’t only include its artistic and cultural appearance. Elliott Forman, a proud Orleanian and entrepreneur, is a significant name hailing from New Orleans that cannot and must not be forgotten while mentioning the city.
When Elliott reached adolescence and started observing the hustle and bustle of life around him, he became curious to participate. Growing up, he developed astonishing communication and speaking skills that would’ve been sufficient to make him one of the youngest sales professionals. However, he opted for the US Navy to start his professional career and serve the country by protecting its waters.
After serving his time on fleets and being at the helm more often than not, this US-Navy veteran joined consumer and business sales and worked there for a substantial period. But after giving many of his years to sales, Elliott realized he was going nowhere and was rather stuck in the ‘crippling confines of a sales job.’ That’s when he planned to develop a business of his own where he could help other businesses in finance and other areas and help them reach their full potential.
“I know how it feels; I could never reach my full potential. But when I did… it was an amazing, powerful feeling,” says Elliott, adding that now he is helping others reach their full potential and feel what he felt.
Elliott created many businesses and grew them exponentially. Some even achieved million-dollar status and earned him a fortune. However, he sold profit-making businesses once they matured and moved on to grow the next one. This astounding streak continued until Elliott founded Bonita Payments – a merchant processing company that offers capital to startups and small businesses looking to expand their current business.
Bonita Payments is currently one of the most thriving businesses in the industry and a source of survival for many small businesses. It provides business-friendly and cost-effective funding programs to mid to small-sized businesses in order to help them sustain themselves in testing times. The company, in effect, is serving the dream of its founder, and after closely observing its seven years in the business, one can say it has done an awe-inspiring job.
The interesting fact about Elliott Forman is his passion isn’t bound to grow businesses and help others grow theirs; the man is deep into literature and often resorts to books to find some solace in the magic of words and transiently escape tumultuous life. And if you are a fan of 80’s music, he might strike you as a living library of old music.
Elliott has been a professional boxer as well and knows the art of striking, blocking, and striking back at the perfect time – probably the reason behind his triumph in the business landscape. The fact that many of his businesses swelled with success instantly makes us believe so. Let us know what you think!
