IAM067 – Social Entrepreneur Helps Bring Change to Workspace Members & the Less Fortunate

Podcast Interview with Mike Thakur of The Work Lodge

Originally from the U.K., we're not sure if it was brisket or J.R. Ewing that brought him here, but he got to Texas just as fast as he could. Retail, B2B, Non-Profits and Hostage Negotiation, Mike's background isn't quite as varied as the hairstyles he wears (he's bald) and sure, he's a little workaholic, probably eats too much curry & mixes beer with Sprite (it's called a ‘Shandy' people), but he eats, sleeps, and dreams about how we can change lives, for the Members (and their businesses) as well as the less fortunate in society.
