Chris Groves might be as close as you get to the definition of “self-made”. Growing up in a small town in Wisconsin, he had little opportunity around him to grow into the entrepreneur he is today. He had no help, guidance, not even a single dime loaned to him to get where he is today. Instead, he has relied on his own hard work, self-discipline, and time management skills to be as successful to the level he wanted. Now, he’s proud to be only in his early 30s and running the fastest growing mortgage company in the United States.
As the owner and CEO and Groves Capital, Chris certainly has his hands full. Groves Capital is a residential and commercial lending company in close to 20 states. They are proud to be a team of 185 loan officers and 65 processors.
Chris was no stranger to real estate when he decided to take the plunge into starting his own business. After working in the industry for many years, he began to notice a change in the field – it was moving online. With things turning virtual, Chris knew he had to respond to the evolving industry if he wanted to succeed.
Despite his incredible success, Chris admits that there are a lot of obstacles on the path ahead. Namely, and especially for a new business, Chris reveals that reputation is a key element that is difficult to achieve.
To make it through the hardships, Chris focuses on his mindset to keep his head clear and motivated. Well-known for his ability to put a positive spin on any situation, Chris wholeheartedly believes that a positive attitude is the key to success.
With the proper mindset, Chris believes that new entrepreneurs will be able to make the sacrifice needed to start their own business. After all, success is tied to individual work ethic.
When Chris was young, his father told him that he was proud to give him a good work ethic. With that, he didn’t need a strong family name or a family loan. The irony is now, the Groves name does mean something with the company Chris has built around it.
