Today we’d like to introduce you to Mike Timmons.
Hi Mike, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
My name is Mike Timmons and many know me as “Mr. Tiny.”
I am a resident of Rockwall and have been blessed to be successful in sales at various companies for the majority of my career.
With my given sales records and past experience a good friend introduced the idea of bringing me into their Real Estate agency.
However, I also saw the potential of the tiny home market with the continued rise of traditional housing prices as well as the growing interest in financial freedom and decided to pursue this alternative.
These two points paired with the extremely high quality of housing that the company (Recreational Resort Cottages) provides, I knew the growth would be tremendous.
With this, I took on the role as the Sales and Marketing Manager for the company and with the growing influence of social media over the past years, we chose to begin a YouTube channel to showcase the possibilities of living big while going tiny.
I chose to take on the nickname “Mr. Tiny” seeing how anytime anyone thinks of tiny homes, I wanted my name to be the first thought that comes to mind.
It also helps as a play on words that I am not necessarily the tiniest individual standing at 6ft 1 and 225lbs while consistently working out six days a week.
The popularity of the one of a kind homes paired with my personality and well-known catchphrases our YouTube Channel: Recreational Resort Cottages has received over 20 million views worldwide and has amassed a following of 175,000 subscribers and counting.
To this point, I have received interest from several networks and filming agencies regarding the pursuit as a host for upcoming tv shows, talk shows and series.
I do see this as a possibility in the future, but as of the moment I intend to continue growing my current following organically so when the time arises, there will be no doubt the world will be ready for what I have to offer.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has not been a smooth road and I have overcome several obstacles along my journey to this point.
However, I do not dwell on what was and tend to focus on what will be.
I have always been a very determined and ambitious individual ever since I can remember and intend to live by the motto the world gives you what you give it.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
In my career I am proud that I can help people obtain their goals on being debt-free and not being locked into the traditional 30 year mortgage.
I am focused on and feel what sets me apart in the industry I reside in is my enthusiasm for what I do, paired with the effort I put into presenting myself from everything regarding the way I speak down to the way I dress.
Most tiny homes salesman have the “hipster” or “good ole boy” vibe as well as mentality and present themselves as such with an extremely laid back approach with t-shirts, shorts and flip flops.
I choose to provide my clients with more of a luxury experience while letting them know I take what I do very seriously by presenting myself in tailored suits, fresh hair cut and hard bottom shoes every time they encounter me.
Can you tell us more about what you were like growing up?
Growing up, I was very blessed to be well known and liked.
I was voted class favorite and most athletic all four years of high school.
I participated in football, basketball, baseball and track from five years old through high school which led to me receiving a scholarship to a Division 1 university for football.
While in high school, I was discovered as a male model for Abercrombie & Fitch which led into more campaigns and commercials with Under Armour, Nike and Hibbett Sports to name a few.
I played sports during the week and traveled for modeling on weekends.
However, football was always my first love so I pursued my scholarship and discontinued the modeling gigs after graduation.
In college, I majored in business administration with a minor in marketing.
I played two years of college football until receiving a career-ending shoulder injury which at the time was a “blessing in disguise” and from there I began my journey into the utilization of my degree in business and marketing which we can now see how that played out.
