Bushy Martin on the dichotomies of life, with Mike Reid

There are age old eternal, internal struggles that we all know too well.


  • The head and the heart
  • External appearances versus internal feelings – the struggle between what you should do and what you want to do
  • Having it all now versus waiting for more later – that conflict between instant and delayed gratification
  • Work and life balance (if that is even a thing)
  • Doing what you have to do instead of what you want to do

But what can you do about it? How can you change or improve your life?

Well to explore this a bit further, this episode is going to be something a bit different.

Bushy recently had a great chat as a guest on Mike Reid’s Dichotomy podcast that covered many of these subjects and the solutions to life’s challenges that have worked so well for Bushy and his wife, Sonya.

Mike’s a great interviewer and he really got Bushy to open up on failures, feelings, reflections, insights and beliefs and revealing some vulnerable things that haven’t been heard before.

Mike interviews leaders, entrepreneurs and ambitious people on the dichotomies they face in their business and life – and how they resolve them.

Mike’s definition of a dichotomy is a division or contrast between two things that feel opposed.

Mike is seeking to bring awareness to the two sides of our personality, our work and our lives.

His Dichotomy podcast explores how we can better master these dichotomies so we can lead a more extraordinary and contented life.

Mike’s a Director of DENT Global and currently driver of their Canadian expansion – DENT helps the founders of service businesses to stand out, scale up and build businesses that make a positive impact in the world.
