Introducing “A Healthy Dose”
Today, I am excited to announce the first of many podcasts that I am doing with my good friend and colleague, Trevor Price, of Oxeon. Those who know Trevor and me, know that we like to have fun (we hope that comes through in these podcasts) and we love the industry (healthcare) in which we work.
Those who know us really well also know that we have very different tastes in music but amazingly we both like Neil Diamond. Odd, we know. But true. And among many of Neil’s great hits, we both share a favorite Neil Song. It’s titled “Forever in Blue Jeans” and you will hear it prominently played throughout our podcast.
But it don’t sing and dance
And it don’t walk . . .
And if you pardon me
I’d like to say
We’ll do okay
Forever in blue jeans
I love this song because it speaks to the truly important things in life. Yes, I am investor. Yes, Trevor runs a healthcare growth services firm. Yes making money for our limited partners, our employees, and our companies is our job. But none of this happens without the amazing entrepreneurs and executives we get to work with every day who are building companies that are literally changing people’s lives. These are the people who make our jobs so much fun and so rewarding — who make it sing and dance and walk.
And so these are the people we want to focus on and highlight in our podcast. We want to share their life stories, discuss how they got into the wonderful world of healthcare, and dig deep into their challenges and their successes. Building a successful company in healthcare ain’t easy. And so we hope the podcast provides a healthy dose of reality as to the goods, the bads, and the uglies of what it takes to build a successful company.
“A Healthy Dose” is also about the industry we work in and love — healthcare. The podcast will dig into important issues, trends, and innovations affecting healthcare both now and into the future. In fact, we recorded our very first podcast just last week at the industry’s largest conference — the JP Morgan healthcare conference — a gathering of thousands of healthcare leaders and entrepreneurs. At the conference, we gathered three of those leaders (a leading entrepreneur, VC, and journalist) to discuss what was hot and what was not at the conference, what 2016 will be remembered for in healthcare, and what the future holds for the industry.
Like all the podcasts to come, we hope this one is informative and entertaining to you the listener. If you have any suggestions for content we should cover or ways we should improve the podcast, we want to hear from you so please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
And with that, we hope you enjoy the maiden voyage of “A Healthy Dose” . . .
