Welcome to the show today and I am ever excited for this episode. Today, we welcome the co-founder of Empire Flippers, Justin Cooke to the show! I have known about Justin and his company for some time now and I’ve had the opportunity to watch Empire Flippers grow over the past few years. Currently, Justin and his team have sold over $35,000,000 in online businesses. They are listed on Inc. Magazine’s Top 500 businesses for the past two years and brokered around 1,800 businesses.
Throughout this episode, Justin gets into the specifics of buying and selling websites and why you might want to consider looking at these types of opportunities. Later in the show, Justin shares about the process of building a 7-figure location independent business and some of the challenges of keeping it a location independent.
“Don’t settle for what you think the business needs to be, build the business you want to have.” Justin Cooke
