Episode Summary

Michael Glauser describes himself as an entrepreneur anthropologist. He is an entrepreneur, an educator, and the author of Main Street Entrepreneur. In the book, he traveled 4,000 miles on his bicycle to interview entrepreneurs all throughout the United States. He says one of the things that helped him keep going was by changing his mindset from ‘how are you feeling?’ to ‘how are you thinking?’ That question alone gives him inspiration and the will to carry on.
