Flippin’ Online Empires for Fun and Profit with Justin Cooke


Justin Cooke didn’t plan on starting Empire Flippers when he headed for the Philippines in 2010, but when the business he worked for started falling apart–and he pictured having to go back to the US, pull his stuff out of storage and start over again there–he got serious.

Today Empire Flippers is matching online business sellers with buyers, and helping them through the process of making the exchange. For many it’s a much better option than traditional investments, and can afford them the freedom to live the lives of their dreams!
