Len Glassman jokingly describes himself as a recovering attorney. He explains that after 4 years of law school and 12 years in practice he just wasn’t happy. Unfortunately (but actually, very fortunately) he was laid off from his job as an officer at a hospital. Right then he decided he never wanted to have another job where someone else was in control of his future.
The very next say he ran into an old friend who was a serial entrepreneur. She and her husband were about to start up a fitness training center and invited him to come work with them. He loved it, learned a ton, and eventually bought the business from them. He ran that business for years and expanded it to having 15 trainers.
In this episode Len opens up about how fitness not only saved his physical health but also his mental health. We have a fun discussing about the best way to build a business and some of the challenges of being an entrepreneur.
Before we wrap up Len provides us with a few exercises we can do to relieve the stress of sitting for long periods of time. Best of all the only equipment we need is a wall. Join us!

When I asked what costume he wanted to wear Len made the logical choice of fitness gear. Most of my fitness gear is pretty well used, lol, but I finally found a set that was color coordinated and without holes.
Follow the show on Instagram @moneyheartshow to see more pics of my costumes from each episode. I also include my guest’s costume when they choose to wear one.
