54 episodes

A Business Owner and a Psychologist get together each week to discuss and debate the idea behind throwing your entire life into the pursuit of that which you love the most. We often chat with Outliers who are pursuing the work they love as their primary source of income. This includes sales professionals, athletes, business owners and entrepreneurs.

We peel back the layers of the onion to find out who they really are, how they see the business world at large and why they chose this pursuit (when they really could have done a million other things).

New episodes dropping weekly!
