MyNiceTie Founder

Ben Buie | 5/16/13

MyNiceTie started after a friend gave me $7,000 so I could fly to Korea and buy 1,000 ties. I ended up getting them for half off and bought 2,000. I landed several wholesaling partnerships and built a website.

I learned a ton about digital marketing and designed a marketing strategy that has resulted in 18 million YouTube views. The strategy also includes helping people through micro-finance. MyNiceTie loans 20% of all necktie sales to struggling people all over the world. As of 2013, it has helped 380 entrepreneurs in 38 countries.
