Social media, content, PR, sales consultant @ Healthy Startups
I can't quite believe that in November 2013 Healthy Startups turned 3! Here I am, here we are, years after this first post. 2013 was the biggest year yet for traffic to Healthy Startups - and there were many more 'pay offs' from the effort that I have put in to the site: I finally got paid to work with, and consult to, healthcare startups and I was invited to speak at conferences and to attend conferences that I otherwise would never have gone to.
In 2013 my biggest 'ROI' from Healthy Startups was the awesome opportunity to network with, support and learn from entrepreneurs and innovators all across the world who share one dream - to change healthcare for the better.
Let's work together to make 2014 awesome!
Here are the 10 most popular posts on Healthy Startups in 2013

A great example of how a platform like Healthy Startups can help to promote the awesome work of innovators in healthcare.
A homage to sci fi and a look at why imitation is sometimes better than innovation.

It's about time I put all that 'spin doctoring' to good use!
A post that could be about the perils of ePatients or a homage to the intellectual giants in our health systems.
Does a small medical practice really need to be active on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter... Do they really need a social media strategy?

1. Startups: Do 1 thing
This seemed like a throw away post. It took me a handful of minutes to write, yet it is the most read post on the site. Is it the headline? You tell me.
I'm excited to continue on this journey in 2014. Please let me know which topics, trends or ideas you think I should explore on the site in 2014. Also, let me know if you would like to contribute to the site in 2014. I can't pay for guest posts, but I can give you access to a world wide audience that is engaged, passionate and excited about the potential to change healthcare in 2014 and beyond.
Thanks so much for all your support!
