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.
