Just How Do Successful Entrepreneurs Think with Jason Feifer

Early this morning I got to welcome Jason Feifer the Editor in Chief of Entrepreneur Magazine to Iowa. He was in the Des Moines Metro to headline a breakfast meeting with the Greater Des Moines Partnership and then off for CI-Week with our friend Tony Paustian of DMACC-West. His topic this morning was "How Do Successful Entrepreneurs Think". Before he took the mic he sat down behind our mic and talked about change. More to the point the history we have in refusing to accept change be it a bicycle (not kidding) or recordings of music. In addition he chatted a bit about his new book he wrote with his wife, Jennifer Miller, "Mr. Nice Guy".  Click through for more.
