Mike Cowper is the owner of Return on Investments, a high-volume wholesale business in the Greater Detroit Area. He describes his success in real estate to be primarily due to his experience working in sales for five years. In September 2014, he stumbled across a free real estate mentorship group and signed up. After learning and gaining massive interest in the industry, Mike’s determination helped him close his first deal by November of that same year.

Mike joins me today to share how his business has been doing since his last appearance on Flip Talk. He describes the experience he’s accumulated, the changes he applied to his company, and how their goals changed as they grew. He explains the importance of sticking to your core competency and why you shouldn’t try to be something you know you’re not capable of. Mike also shares advice for those who may want to try something new, either for their business or personal development. 

“I’m good at being a leader and a mentor, but I’m not a manager. I recognize it’s not my core competency.” – Mike Cowper
