Doing Less and Making More

Michael Green believes that the key to success in the house flipping industry is being open to investing in personal growth and seeing the potential in something that’s a little broken-down and rough around the edges, even if others may have given up on it. This includes seeing the potential in oneself. After discovering the self-development journey, Michael has scaled two houses flipping businesses and flipped over 1100 houses in the last ten years to achieve success that he never believed was possible.

Today Michael finds the most rewarding part of his career to be helping others make profound changes from the inside out and to achieve financial freedom.
