From a Taoist last week to a hard-charging entrepreneur this week. This week's guest is a former tennis opponent of mine who is now running his own healthcare technology company out of Boston. Jared Taylor was the first person from his family to graduate college and did so in a remarkable 2.5 years. Always an intensely driven and hard-working person, he held 3 jobs at once (1 full time, 2 part time) before taking the leap into full on entrepreneurship. Today, he’s the Founder and CEO of Blochealth, a cutting edge healthcare technology company looking to positively change the industry by unlocking healthcare professional data and making it shareable.
