Real Estate Investing For Health

Are the homes we live in making us sick?

Can we do something about it?

Can we as Entrepreneurs invest in real estate that offers a healthy return on investment?

Soby Tadjalli, MPH, a former collegiate and professional soccer player, started out with a career in public health. After working at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, ICF, and the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors, he decided to pivot, combining his passion for health and wellbeing with real estate!

Soby has previously shared his personal story, highlighting his family’s experience with health and the reasons for the move into real estate. The original interview is available here.

In this week’s episode, Soby shares insights for all Entrepreneurs looking for a healthy return on investment when it comes to property, highlighting why investing in health is critical to your bottom line.

Soby featured on day 63 of my 90-day challenge for new Health Entrepreneurs. As you’ll see with the episodes so far, I’ve had 2 goals with this challenge:

  • The first relates to my personal experience with mental health. When I experienced burn out as a physician, I did some research to learn the strategies that help us feel and perform better, so we can thrive in our work and relationships. That’s why I’m teaching the tools and strategies I’ve found, to help all Entrepreneurs excel and be more resilient.

Learn from Soby here:

You and I are both after the same thing, better health & wellbeing. As an Entrepreneur, you may have seen or felt problems with your personal experience of healthcare. Given your mindset, expertise, and skillset, you now want to do something about it. You may be worried that you have no prior knowledge or credentials within the health sector.

As The Entrepreneur’s Doctor, I specialise in supporting you to translate your unique knowledge, skills, experience, and mindset, into innovative solutions that promote health and wellbeing. I do that by prescribing a dose of Startup Therapy, empowering you to self-assess, diagnose, treat, and better yet, prevent issues facing your health startup or business.

I’m Behrooz, a Harvard & Oxford trained preventive medicine / public health doctor, with over 20 years of international experience across direct patient care, wider public health service, policy, industry, media, research, education and training. I’ve supported and mentored Entrepreneurs from non-health backgrounds to enter and navigate the health sector.

While the future of health and care may be digital and enabled by healthtech, most entrepreneurs are merely focusing on the symptoms affecting healthcare. I can help you dive deeper to tackle the underlying causes affecting health and wellbeing, highlighting strategies and opportunities for real impact.

Sadly though, many Entrepreneurs and Startups fail, often due to problems securing investment, gaining adoption, and poor product-market fit. Sometimes, what limits the scalability and sustainability of the business is the physical and mental health of the Entrepreneur him/herself.

That’s why I’ve created some free resources to help get you off to a flying start. Learn more at
