 Stories with a Purpose

Welcome to the show everyone. I hope you are all well.
My guest today is the host of the popular podcast Stories with a Purpose.
He’s the founder of the Smart Patient Academy and the author of Smart Patient Smart Money.
He was diagnosed with stage three colon cancer at age 42. He faced the most challenging waves of confusion, fear, and chaos of his life. He says he was clearly not ready to be pounded by the disease, or the unforgiving healthcare system.
The irony is that he is an expert in the health insurance field. You would think that if anybody could navigate the system well, it would have been him, but this was not the case.
So,  four years later when he was diagnosed with an unrelated but life-threatening brain tumor, he decided to take control of the process. He learned how to make the system work for him and that made a world of difference in his outcome and the quality of his life.
