Sometimes taking a risk pays off. Wendy Mayer, VP, Worldwide Innovation at Pfizer, said the biggest risk she took in her career happened when she got the opportunity to work in a different part of the organization. That was a much better choice than taking the safe career route.

Mayer also had advice for anyone starting a company: be confident.

“No one is going to believe you if you don’t believe in yourself,” she said.

I am the editor in chief at MedCityNews.com. I started writing and editing in the print world and joined a dotcom right before the 2000 crash. I was at TechRepublic/CNET/BNET for 7 years. Health was more interesting to me than the latest version of Windows, so I left for a startup tracking prescription drug news. A year later, MedTrackAlert was acquired by HealthCentral, so I shifted to audience research. The fun of daily news and interviewing smart people brought me to MedCity News in February 2012.
