Today I’ll be talking with Andy Billman, who has made it his goal to help entrepreneurs understand how to take their obstacles, recalibrate their minds, and use their businesses and their lives to help change others.
Andy is here to talk about the ups and downs of his career, professional milestones & stories, and to share his expertise on how to sell your company. What do buyers look for? What would make a company look good in the eyes of a potential buyer?
He also wants to share his experience of facing death, so we can understand the importance of reflecting on what’s important for you, your life, and your business.
A Note About the Podcast:
I’ve realized that--more than “life after business”--this podcast is about being intentional and growing your business so you can have more options and more freedom in your journey. So my question is, if the name of the podcast changes from “Life After Business” to “Intentional Growth: How to Grow the Value of Your Business with an End in Mind”, would that throw you for a loop? The topics and content would still be the same, the only difference would be the title.

“I just kinda smiled and said, ‘Well, my mom always told me I was special.’” - Andy, about having rare brain cancer.
“I share my story with complete strangers because I hope that I can make an impact in whatever they are going through.” - Andy
“Life is finite. People are also people. How do we integrate business and humans and the long game of life into one journey that we enjoy and that makes and impact on others.” - Ryan
Life is finite and you have the ability to realize that. One of the most useful life tips I’ve incorporated into my life was from Benjamin Franklin (when I read his biography). He explained that ? of his thoughts were on the fact that life is finite in order to calibrate the things that he dealt with.
