10 Questions with Mike Reid

By Good Read Magazine Editors

This '10 Questions' are answered by our contributor and Editor-in-Chief Mike Reid. When he’s not reading articles by our contributors and guest contributors, he’s working with Cat Janiga Jewelry, working with brands, answering other people’s questions on He Said She Said and thinking about his next project or company. He might be a robot. Let’s see if any of his answers are in binary. 

1. What inspires you?

Mike Reid: People working towards their dreams and passions. There’s just a certain kind of energy when you speak to someone driving towards a goal that’s amazing. 

2. What do you think about when you’re alone in your car/shower?

MR: How to solve a challenge with Good Read Magazine, Cat Janiga Jewellery, the next venture I'll be doing soon, or how long I can stand in the glory of warm water before I'm a bad person for not conserving water. 

3. What’s your favourite ’90s jam?

MR: Ma$e, Feel So Good. Who doesn’t feel good while doing the Harlem Shake (The real, Bad Boy Entertainment Harlem Shake).

4. What were you like in high school?

MR: Pretty much the same as I am now. I love to laugh and I do way too many things at a time. I think I was voted the most outgoing person in my graduating yearbook. Which was surprising ‘cause I never thought of myself as such.

5. What’s the last thing you watched on TV and why did you choose to watch it?

MR: Angel. The Lady never got into Buffy and Angel when she was in high school. I've been re-watching it, she's being introduced to it. The shows hold up, she loves them now. Josh Whedon is the best. #TeamSpike.

6. What should everyone try at least once in her life?

MR: Do something amazing that they're afraid of. They'll be pleasantly surprised.
