Retired Green Beret & CEO of Fieldcraft Survival Discusses How To Be Prepared In The Worst Case Scenarios

From pretending to be a soldier at a young age to becoming a Special Forces soldier to becoming an entrepreneur. That’s this week’s Team Never Quit Podcast guest, former US Army Special Forces Green Beret, Mike Glover. With deployments to fourteen combat theaters, Mike worked in the US Army for over 18 years, serving as a weapons specialist, assaulter, sniper, recon specialist, team sergeant, joint terminal air controller (JTAC), and operations SGM.
Mike is the founder and CEO of Fieldcraft Survival, and host of the Fieldcraft Survival Podcast on iTunes, and Soundcloud. He is an avid outdoorsman, traveler, and hunter. He teaches survival and disaster preparedness and provides equipment solutions based on his experience in special operations. As an expert at counter-terrorism, Mike says that survival isn’t just technical ability; it is the encompassing of everything he has learned throughout his career: mindset, technical skills, and equipment.

In this episode you will hear:
• Common sense is not so common anymore. If more people paid attention to having a little more common sense, most of the things you see go wrong is because of the lack of it. (2:03)
• I joined the Army at the age of 17 and started my journey. (6:05)
• I was never the disciplinary unless it came to standards. If you wanted flexibility, you had to meet the baseline. (28:37)
• My military certainly taught me how to have and develop hard skills – technical skills. The overwhelming majority of me surviving had nothing to do with hard skills, but had everything to do with planning, preparation, attention to detail, culture, physical fitness, health and wellness, as a collective. (32:38)
• You have to understand how to operate and be resilient every single day. (33:29)
• Resilience, by far, is the hardest thing to teach. (34:36)
• Resilience is the act of getting up after you’ve been beat down. (37:39)
• “You’re going to rise to the occasion” is a misnomer. You’re going to fall to your level of training. (40:58)
• My company is called Fieldcraft Survival. (43:00)
• VSO – Village Stabilization Operations. You wanna have access to placement? Well, get into the environment where people live, train and educate them, empower them, and that place will be better. (50:03)
• One of the reasons me and Marcus were successful in our military careers is because we had an institution – a culture that was willing to listen to subject matter experts, and we took that information and applied it to our lives. (54:20)
