Conversation matters

Over the course of launching and running ScaleDown, I was fortunate to build a great community of colleagues and friends in health innovation. Some were fellow entrepreneurs, some work at huge cache brand organizations. They provided wise counsel, belly laughs and a shoulder to cry on.

Over the last six or so months, one of the most joyful things I’ve done at work is help bring some of those people together for conversations through the To Health With It podcast.

My co-host, Brad Lawson, is one of the people I met in that ScaleDown journey and then had the pleasure of working with on a day to day basis for a little over a year. Brad has been in the health and wellness industry for 20 years working with small start-ups and huge corporations. He’s also one of the people I know most dedicated to his personal health. If you want to talk Orange Theory splat points, Brad is your guy.

Brad and I have been fortunate to talk to a range of delightful and interesting players in health and healthcare. The conversations are on some pretty serious topics – pain management, cancer, national health policies. But we also have some pretty good laughs.

In the harried lives that we lead, we can forget the value of a great conversation. I’ve been fortunate to have some great ones – and we have some more great ones still to air.
