Welcome to the kick off episode of the Freedom Flipping Podcast!
I initially thought this could be a Bootstrap Duel Podcast style show with my buddy Vic Dorfman from speedkills.io (who I use to host and manage this site) but we decided it would be best for my to go solo.
If me being solo offends you then just be grateful I didn’t call it Pateycast (was damn close ha)! I’m sure Vic will be a regular and recurring guest however.
So on this episode we have an awesome guest, Justin Cooke, co-founder and CMO of empireflippers.com which is a marketplace for buying and selling online businesses which I’ve used before when sold my small ecommerce business.
