- The Flipping Ninja -

Hey! I'm AJ.

But you might know me better as 'The Flipping Ninja' due to my passion for this craft. If you're new here, let me take you on a journey—a journey of evolution, transformation, and empowerment.

From the peaceful landscapes of Wisconsin, I moved to Minnesota, where the heart of 'The Flipping Ninja' truly began to beat. It was here, amidst its vibrant energy, that I mastered the art of flipping and transformed it into a thriving venture. My adventures then took me to the dynamic streets of Los Angeles, the breathtaking heights of Colorado, the bustling streets of New York, and now, I'm embracing the nomadic lifestyle in the picturesque terrains of Thailand. Each place has its own story, but Minnesota remains the epicenter of my flipping legacy.

But who am I beyond the flips, the strategies, and the entrepreneurial ventures? I'm a curious soul, a nature lover, a technologist, and a lifelong learner. I’ve always been an avid reader, and I believe that continuous learning has been a cornerstone of my journey. 

Learning, evolving, and occasionally, experimenting with an epic 70s pornstache. Greetings from Thailand!

Every flipper's journey is guided by principles. Here's one of mine:

Flipping Ninja Tenet #3

Insatiable curiosity combined with massive action is a superpower you can take to the bank.

This tenet has been a cornerstone of my journey. It's not just about knowing; it's about doing. Behavioral change. Every successful flip, every lesson learned, stems from this principle.

My journey has been anything but ordinary, and it definitely wasn't always smooth. I faced challenges and made mistakes, but every step taught me something new. And it's this very journey that has shaped the ethos of The Flipping Ninja.

Humble Beginnings

Picture this: A regular guy in his early 20s, living an ordinary life in an apartment in Minnesota, working the typical 9 to 5 grind. That was me. I was always on the lookout for ways to make some extra cash, to break free from the monotony.

When your kitten gives you the 'paw of approval' for your next big idea.

Throwback to simpler times: Just me, my Minnesota apartment, and my trusty sidekick. :P

The Transformative Power of Flipping

Then came the world of flipping.

It all started with a Yamaha keyboard.

A simple transaction that not only earned me a profit but also ignited a passion.

Bought this keyboard for $100, enjoyed its melodies for a year, and then, on a whim, sold it for $120. That small profit sparked a realization: there was potential in flipping. From that moment, I was hooked.

Balancing Work, Life, and Flipping Profits

Starting with an extra $500 a month—which, believe me, is an achievable feat for almost anyone as I quicky discovered—I soon saw my earnings skyrocket to $2,500, all while juggling a full-time job and an active social life.

A Glimpse Into My Early Flipping Days:

9 to 5 grind in the AM...

Post-work thrift store runs...

Profitable post-work flips...

And a Vikings game to cap off the evening.

Who said you can't do it all?

But flipping wasn't just about the money. It was about the freedom, the empowerment, and the endless possibilities it brought into my life. It was the strategy and the art of the flip that captivated me. 

Month after month, I saw my earnings grow, not just supplementing my income but reshaping my lifestyle.

Beyond the Sale: 

The Life-Changing Impact of Flipping

I bought my first house using the profits from flipping, upgraded home appliances, and even indulged in luxury cars. And it didn’t stop there. I funded exotic vacations, and even turned my house into a rental property.

One flip led to another...

Honest Reflection: It's easy to see the shine and miss the grind. While I'm proud of these accomplishments, it's the journey, the hustle, and the lessons learned that I value the most. Flipping isn't just about the end game; it's about the game itself.

Adaptable, Flexible, Timeless: A Skill for Every Life Stage

Very quickly I realized: this wasn't just a side hustle; it was a way of life, adaptable to any stage of my journey. The flexibility of flipping as a side hustle, a full-time gig, or even as a retirement hobby was a strong selling point and that's why I stuck with it. It’s a skill that, once mastered, can be used in various life stages and situations, and I loved that I could turn it on or off anytime.

Every Evolution Has A Story

The Evolution & The Hiatus

After reaching a point of financial freedom, I embraced the opportunity to live life on my terms.

I took a hiatus, moved to the beautiful landscapes of Thailand, and immersed myself in new experiences. While many believed I had hung up my flipping shoes for good after my message on 10-22-22, they were in for a surprise. Because, in the world of The Flipping Ninja, a true Ninja never truly disappears; he evolves. And so, one year later, I made my return on 10-23-23, not just as a flipper, but as an innovator.

A true Ninja never truly disappears; he evolves.
