Exploring Life & Business with Jakobe Hopkins of Hopkins Building Group

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jakobe Hopkins.

Hi Jakobe, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I was introduced to construction and Realestate by my mentor Gary Johnson; he took me under his wing when I was just 17 years of age. He showed me the ropes of acquiring property and making a profit off of each one. He also motivated me and pushed me to be a better person and businessman!

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a smooth road?
The road to greatness is uncharted and very unpredictable. In business, I’ve been judged because of my age, past failures & so much more. But that was when I learned that greatness was in my DNA. What others said and thought about me didn’t matter to me.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
