I met Taylor in Philadelphia, at a networking event organized through SoMeDocs. In our early days, we used to call them “SoMeDocs Engage,” and we’d have physicians from major cities across the US meet on random weeknights to just schmooze. It was a well-needed activity we didn’t do enough of, as doctors, and I was prepared to light that fire.
Taylor was there, among attendees of that night’s meetup, wearing a smile that’s become signature. For me, it was a a-ha moment to see it, because he had named his podcast ‘The Happy Doc’. I now knew why.
Over the years, I’ve valued the work Taylor has created, watching him put foot to pedal where it came to bringing ideas to fruition. We’ve teamed up for this podcasting series, and are excited to see Taylor become an active coach in SoMeDocs’ new podcasting services, helping professionals build the foundation to their own podcasts. It’s the natural ‘next step’ in the growth of our venture.
So voila, that’s a bit of background into how this series was born.
