Dr. Greg Jacobson: Juggling Life and Being Both an Emergency Physician and a Startup CEO
Joining me for Episode #31 of “the My Favorite Mistake” podcast is Dr. Greg Jacobson, an emergency medicine physician and the CEO/co-founder of KaiNexus, a technology and software company. In the interest of full disclosure, I will mention that I have worked with KaiNexus, in various capacities, since 2011 and I have an ownership stake in the company.
That said, Greg is one of the most interesting people you'll ever meet. Many startup CEOs launch their company at night while working their day job. Greg started KaiNexus during the days while working some nights as an E.R. doc.
In today's episode, Greg (always the overachiever) shares FIVE favorite mistakes from his career:
- Not reading more
- Not figuring out work/life balance
- Struggling with the diffusion of CEO attention as the company grows
- Not being appreciative enough
- Not doing his own due diligence
We'll talk about all of that, the importance of creating a culture of continuous improvement in a company, and much more. I think you'll enjoy the conversation, as I did.
