    Celebrating 2 years in podcasting!

    I’m celebrating 2 full years in podcasting today (January 21, 2022). If you’re new to the show, WELCOME!  This is a great episode to start with!  In this episode, I share a little bit about me,  some history about this podcast (when and why I started it, who it’s for, and what I want listeners to do with the information), some of the struggles I’ve worked through in the first two years of the podcast, and what’s coming up as I begin my third year in podcasting.

    Highlights from the episode
    I am a pharmacist, voice actor, podcast host, wife, mom of 2 teenaged boys, and a volunteer. 
    Why did I start a podcast?  I started The Pharmacist’s Voice Podcast for three reasons: Dr. Erin L. Albert suggested I look into starting a podcast; the podcast works as a branding tool; and the podcast helps me network.
    Who is my intended audience?  Pharmacists, pharmacy students, pharmacy technicians, and voice actors in the medical space. 
    What do I want you to do with the information in this podcast?  The number one thing I want you to do is BE INSPIRED TO USE YOUR VOICE!  That means, I want you to feel inspired to use your expertise/your passion for something that you feel is worthwhile.  Please note that I am not the voice of the pharmacy profession.  This podcast is not about me trying to position myself as the voice of the pharmacy profession.  I want to inspire people to use their voices.
    The 4 main things I struggle with are carrying the conversation all by myself on solo shows (because I’m a reactor, not a generator), finding time to podcast, audio engineering, and voice issues, like muscle tension dysphonia and losing my voice after a cold.  
    Coming up in 2022, I will continue to publish one episode/week.  There will be solo shows and interview shows.  I plan to do more series, and I hope to participate in NaPodPoMo.

    Highlights from the interview
    How did Maria get started in writing?  
    While a community pharmacist, she created patient-friendly resources.  Then, she became a part-time freelance medical writer.  As her writing career progressed, she became a full-time writer.
    Advice Maria gives pharmacists she speaks to who are interested in medical writing:  
    Don’t underestimate the experience you already have.  As a pharmacist, you already have a great foundation for your ability to write. 
    Her favorite topic to write about is mental health.  She likes making an impact on others.  
    Maria shared her experience with freelance writing websites.  It was an entry point at one time that led to more clients and word-of-mouth referrals.  
    Maria has experience creating CME (continuing medical education) on a range of topics, including hypertension, diabetes, lifestyle modification, osteoporosis, breast cancer screening, and mental health resilience.  Her content can be found on websites, in presentations, and on social media.  
    Many US Veterans suffer from loneliness.  It is important to acknowledge Veterans in public, ask how they are doing, and thank them for their service.  My Dad (Kim’s Dad) is a combat Veteran.  See the images of Veterans wearing special hats in the show notes (blogpost) for episode 131 on thepharmacistsvoice.com/podcast.

    The story of 1+1=4.  A story about nail holes in a fence. I compare the pharmacy profession to Camelot.  Sir Galahad might end up saving the pharmacy profession (not someone practicing now). “Knowledge of any value can’t be given.  It must be sought and earned.”  - Rick Riordan, The Serpent’s Shadow (Kane Chronicles Series Book 3) I compare Amazon Pharmacy to a natural disaster (like a tornado) and everyone else in the pharmacy profession to survivors who band together to survive and thrive.   Pharmacists sometimes act like someone has the answer and they’re withholding it. Advice:  get it right.  Don’t try to be right. You don’t have a right to the cards you believe you should have been dealt.  You have an obligation to play the heck out of the ones you’re holding. Nobody is coming to save you.  Get up.  Be your own hero, and be your patient’s guide.   Find people you trust, and listen to them.  1 + 1 = 4 when you work together.  I internalized this equation as a parent of a child with autism even thought I heard the story when I was I kid.     Subscribe to or Follow The Pharmacist’s Voice Podcast!

    Highlights from the interview
    As a writer in a public health setting early in her career, Megan learned how to massage information to make it more digestible and actionable for the general public.  
    Information impacts behavior.  Misinformation has an impact on the health of communities.  Relevant and accurate information helps people live healthier lives. 
    We talked about Megan’s writing style as a health content writer.  Writing style can take time to develop.  You will learn what comes easily or is difficult through practice.  You must practice to figure it out. 
    It’s harder to write a piece that’s not in your area of expertise.  It’s “a heavier lift.”  You need to find your niche so it’s easy to write.  It’s hard to scale a business writing for clients who aren’t a good match for your skills.  Find a lane you feel comfortable in and that feels natural to you so you can maximize your expertise and your impact in that lane.  
    Megan shared two stories about how feedback on her writing influenced her.  Feedback can help a writer find the right clients.  
    Who are Megan’s ideal clients?  Either digital health companies or innovative health companies, especially those who have either primarily black audiences or have a segment of their audience who is black.  Megan likes working with clients who are specific about their audience and the types of actions or behaviors they are trying to stimulate.  
    There’s always room for a new perspective in the writing community.  All of our perspectives are different.  There are people out there who share your perspective and will be maximally impacted because they share your perspective.  You will perform your best when you are writing for an audience you can relate to or that you’re passionate about or have expertise in.  
    Megan is a Health Content Writing Coach.  Her program is called Health Pro

    Highlights from the interview
    Brittany was on maternity leave at the time we recorded our interview.  We chatted about motherhood.
    Brittany uses her voice as a medical writer.  She has her own style.  Her work is fair, balanced, and unbiased. When crafting a piece, she keeps the audience and the goal of the piece in mind.
    Medical content can be boring, so it needs to be short, engaging, and understandable.  Brittany and her team tailor to busy medical professionals.  
    According to Brittany, medical writing is a three billion dollar industry.  It includes topics such as medicine, regulatory matters, continuing medical education (CME), consumer-facing education, blogs, and more.  Because there are many opportunities to carve out a niche, each writer can use his/her zone of genius to be successful.  
    Banner Medical has 3 focus areas:
    CME (They are experts in developing needs assessments.) Blogging/consumer health space Scientific, academic space Brittany uses her voice to advocate for the profession of pharmacy.  She is on the Board for the Illinois Pharmacists Association.  She feels it’s important to give back and help the profession.  
    Brittany loves her team of pharmacist writers.  She started as a freelance medical writer in 2015.  Now, Banner Medical has more than 20 pharmacist writers.  She plans to hire more writers soon.  The business is growing fast, and there is a good diversity of writing styles among her team members.   
    As an entrepreneur, she had to get comfortable making tough decisions and spotting what is working and what’s not working.  She decides what works and what doesn’t.
    Brittany has two online courses
    Medical Writing Jumpstart (NEW in 2022 for pharmacists who want to explore medical writing but aren’t sure if it’s for them.  Shorter, less expensive course.  ) Medical Writing Mastery (Longer, more expensive course) Brittany advocates for women.  She feels that is it important for women pharmacists to support and uplift one another.  She recommends women pharmacists join Chara Reid-Reed’s Pharmacist Women Facebook Group. 
    We talked about how having a baby will change things.  Brittany will lean more on her team, delegate tasks, set boundaries, and work through it.
    There are no guarantees in entrepreneurship.  Entrepreneurs are risk-takers, and they work through things when they don’t go the way you want them to go.  Highlight reels don’t show the difficult times.  Surround yourself with people who can help you figure stuff out.  There’s blood, sweat, and
