Dan Andrews Part II ~ Host of the Tropical MBA Podcast and Co-Founder of the Dynamite Circle

~ Current Series ~
100 Interviews with 100 Location-Independent
Entrepreneurs that have over $1,000,000 in Annual Revenue

 

Hello listeners we are so happy to have you here today, and I am so happy to give you a brief intro into a good friend and guest of the show Dan Andrews. Dan is the co-founder of one of the largest location independent communities called the Dynamite Circle.  The Dynamite Circle or DC as we call it is a private group of location independent entrepreneurs. The organization also hosts two key events each year called DCBKK and DCAustin. Both amazing conferences I would recommend checking out. Dan is also the co-founder of a business that became the #1 supplier for valet podium stands in the US.  

 

We brought Dan on the show today to discuss life post the sell of his business. He recently wrote a book titled ‘Before the Exit | Thought Experiments for Entrepreneurs’ where he takes the readers through a process of asking questions that are really important if you are going to exit or sell your business. Hindsight is 20/20 and he has a very interesting perspective on many reasons why he would not have sold his business knowing what he knows now.

 

“We thought, we have these five or six challenges with our business. It’s worth a lot. Why not just sell it?  Then those challenges will go away, and then they’ll be replaced by money!” Dan Andrews

 

03:06: What Would You Tell Your Younger Self About Exiting Your Business?

11:34: What are Dan’s and Chris’ Numbers?

17:59: Dan On the Insatiable Desire for More

22:05: How to See the Important Things Before You Sell

24:25: Being Better at Life Post Exit

28:24: Dan’s Dream Podcast Guest

 

 

 

 

“Our businesses give is an idea-generating machine. A group of people on hand, whose job it is, to take your vision and turn them into cashflows.” Dan Andrews

Welcome to the show ladies and gentlemen we are glad you are here with us today because we have another exciting guest we want to introduce. Liam Martin is joining us today! Liam is the founder of two 7-figure location independent businesses, staff.com, timedoctor.com. He is also the founder of the Running Remote conference that is held in Bali.

 

Liam hopped on the show with us and gave so much valuable content that we divided the interview into two podcast episodes, the second episode will be published next! On the show today, Liam discusses what it was like building two 7-figure businesses simultaneously with remote teams. We then start chatting about Liam's goal of getting on 120 podcasts in 120 days. Being that created 100 podcasts in 100 days we got into a great discussion about tactics we both used to make this happen. Later in the show, we discuss how Liam used these podcasts to build his conference. Make sure to check out this episode!

“I’m content, but contentment doesn’t necessarily mean I’m happy. Happiness is eating a pizza. Contentment is going to the gym to stay healthy, and that doesn’t include eating a pizza!” Liam Martin

Ep.287 ~ Review of Baby Bathwater Institute

Ep.287 ~ Review of Baby Bathwater Institute

June 17, 2018

An island in Croatia with the CTO of Kyvio, Steven van der Peijl and a couple hundred 7-figure entrepreneurs! This is our review of Baby Bathwater Island Croatia

Hey listeners, welcome back to the show!  Do you know what a benchmark is? A benchmark is one of those times in your life that you know that you know that you know life completely changes after that moment. Today’s podcast is about one of those moments. Last week, I just got back from my first Baby Bathwater Institute event on an island in Croatia.  A small group of us attended including a good friend Steven the CTO of Kyvio.  We were both absolutely blown away by the experience, so much that we had to hop on the podcast and create a follow-up episode for the event.  If you are thinking about checking out Baby Bathwater make sure you tune it. I think we can help you make up your mind!

 

“It kind of feels like we were playing Mario Bros. and we went a random tube in Level 2 and ended up in Level 10!”  Steven quoting Idahosa Ness

 

02:10: What is Baby Bathwater Island and Why Are We Talking About It?

08:40: How to Immediately Apply What You Learn at a Conference?

13:35: Arriving on the Island
