Realtor and serial entrepreneur Kevin Cooper shares the wisdom he's gained from growing up in the 80s, serving in the military and his life as a businessman.

He was taught not to back down from a fight as a young man and has taken that lesson to heart. It served him well in the military where he served in combat during Desert Storm. It also served him well in a career change that required a deep dive into engineering and new skills. When faced with a challenge he stands his ground and achieves his objective. Listen to the life experiences that built this strong man.

Favorite song: What's Going On by Marvin Gaye.

Favorite words: "If you can't fly, then run, if you can't run, then walk, if you can't walk, then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving." - Martin Luther King Jr.
