The Art of Living Well Podcast®

May 6, 2020

You are going to be so inspired by today’s conversation with Jeff Dachis. 

Jeff is the CEO and Founder of One Drop, a simple, powerful and convenient mobile platform for managing diabetes and chronic health conditions, which was born from his own experience. His desire to bring the quantified self movement, internet of things, big data and mobile computing to people with diabetes in a simple, fully integrated solution led him to create the One Drop platform - which won “Best Design” at the LAUNCH 2015 Festival, and has received a Good Design award, the oldest and the most prestigious Global Awards Program for Design Excellence and Design Innovation.

Jeff is a digital visionary and a serial entrepreneur. Considered one of the early pioneers in the development of the World Wide Web, Jeff was involved in the creation of the first banner ad, the creation of the first web animation, and has digital work exhibited as part of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.

Jeff is also the Co-Founder, former CEO and Chairman of Razorfish (acquired by Publicis), the world’s largest digital marketing solutions firm, and a company he bootstrapped from his East Village apartment and led it through its successful $55MM IPO.  Now 25 years later, the Company is over 20,000 employees in 100 cities on 5 continents and generates $2 billion in annual sales.

Jeff is a Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year winner (NYC 2001) and finalist (Austin 2012); he is also the 2016 recipient of NYU Steinhardt’s Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award.

In today's conversation we hear about Jeff's personal journey with type 1 diabetes and how that led him to dream-up and create the company One Drop.  We learn how the One Drop app and the glucose meter work together to empower people to engage in self-care and manage their diabetes.  One Drop's gorgeous device is so cool looking it makes customers feel like a "Diabadass." All the products and services they offer are directed to help those with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Jeff shares with us everything you need to know about the subscription packages, including how affordable and useful the glucose monitor and related information is to help improve the customer's quality of life.

We also discuss today's state of healthcare and the worldwide diabetes problem. 

One Drop offers so much support including access to 24/7, 365 days per year health coaching and accountability when you subscribe. They also ship your test strips right to your door.

One Drop is also offering their services direct to employers and they have rolled out coaching programs for treating hypertension, high cholesterol, weight-loss and prediabetes, in addition to type 1 and type 2 diabetes. 

We wrap up our conversation talking about the healthcare industry as a whole and then finally on mindset and Jeff's incredibly positive attitude that has really paved the way for where he is today.
