BUSINESS ADVISOR AND HOST OF “THE BUSINESS LIFE” PODCAST
ABOUT ANDREW HEIM
I appreciate you taking the time to get to know me a little bit better!
As a business advisor, my sole mission is to help make meaningful changes in people’s businesses so that they feel confident about their long-term trajectory.
This passion began while working for my family’s third-generation business. I learned the value of serving others and what it takes to run a business well. I decided to take my own leap into the world of entrepreneurship by starting and running a successful IT consulting firm in Manhattan, KS for six years. Starting out by knocking on businesses doors to offer help with their IT needs, I quickly grew to hundreds of customers.
In 2015, I had the opportunity to transition out of my IT business and into business advising. Just as with my first company, my focus is on serving my clients in an extraordinary fashion. My greatest reward is to see the progress and growth inside of the businesses that I advise and work with. I ultimately feel like a “partner” with my clients, ensuring that their business becomes simpler, easier to manage and more profitable.
In early 2018 I launched “The Business Life” podcast where I explore the lifestyles, routines and strategies of successful business professionals. Podcasting has not only given me another outlet to share my passion for business, but has also allowed me to gain access into the lives of some of the best professionals across a wide variety of industries. You can find “The Business Life” podcast on all your devices, including Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher and Spotify.
THE PERSONAL SIDE
Outside of business, I like to be active; in other words, I have a hard time sitting still. I enjoy being outdoors, golfing, tennis, hunting, camping or just enjoying nature. I can easily get lost in yard work or tinkering with projects around the house as well. If I am stuck inside, I love to cook and watch sports, especially my alma mater, Kansas State.
If I can convince my wife to ignore the winters, my dream would be live in a cabin somewhere along Lake Michigan in Michigan. We recently explored the beautiful nature that part of the country has to offer and fell in love with it. For now, though, we’re very content to call Kansas City our home.
My wife, Lauren and I have been married since 2012. She’s also an entrepreneur with her business, Lauren Heim Studio, where she focuses on the art of modern hand lettering and helping inspire others to have a creative lifestyle. No matter what we’re doing, it’s likely our Wheaten Terrier, Bear, is right alongside us too. His favorite things are running in open spaces, sticking his face in the snow and going through drive-thrus that offer doggie treats.
I’m also a member of the Overland Park South Rotary Club, after having been in the Manhattan Rotary Club for several years, as well as members of Prince of Peace Church in Olathe and a member of The Knights of Columbus.
