Ep.295 ~ Should You Exit a 7-Figure Location Independent Business ~ Dan Andrews Part I

~ 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
