Betsy Weaver, Ed.D., CEO, Prisident & Founder, UbiCare

1. Why Boston?
I grew up in the suburbs. I wanted my family to grow up in a heterogeneous city and Jamaica Plain is perfect.

2. What's the one word to describe how people will feel after leaving your New Co session?

Inspired ... I hope!

3. On a scale of 1 to 10, how weird are you and why?

Probably a 6. I'm a visionary ”the good, the bad and the ugly of it." 

4. What movie, no matter how many times you've seen it, do you have to watch when it's on?

Most recently, Spy with Melissa McCarthy. 

5. In the past few months, what is the smallest change you made that had the biggest positive result?    
Repeating the following every day: "Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference." Also, remembering that the key to good business is to treat others the way I want to be treated.

6. If you could have a beer with anyone (dead or alive) who would it be?    
These three people (followed by links to their talks that you should watch): 

Scott Galloway 

Sally Kohn 

Karen Armstrong

7. What did you miss in the interview for the worst hire you ever made?    
I was too impressed with credentials and not with what they could prove they'd already accomplished.

8. If you were a box of cereal, what would you be and why?
Oatmeal with fruit and nuts healthy, high protein and low calorie. 

9. If there was a movie produced about your life, who would play you and why?    
Bette Midler. She's smart, sassy and a good business woman. 

10. What book do you think everyone on your team should read?    
Rework by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson

About UbiCare: We work in healthcare because we care. We joined forces with forward-thinking hospitals and partners to evoke “patient engagement” long before it was the buzzword it is now. We form meaningful, long-term relationships between hospitals and patients because it's the right way to care for people. It's the kind of care we want as patients, and the kind we want for everyone. Our end goal is Making Us All Better – and we live by this mission.
