Mike Reid interviews leaders, entrepreneurs and ambitious people on the dichotomies they face in their business and life. A dichotomy means a division or contrast between two things that feel opposed. Mike is seeking to bring awareness to two sides of his guest's business, life or personality. Perhaps it’s their desire for building a high performance, high octane business contrasted against their desire for the freedom and lifestyle that comes with the ‘simple life’. Maybe it’s feeling torn between their commitments to their family and their commitment to their business. The dichotomy podcast explores how we can better master these dichotomies as entrepreneurs, so we can lead a more extraordinary and contented life.
