All of life is a struggle, you just have to deal with it the best way you can. Cancer is debilitating. The diagnosis and treatment become your whole life. It’s impossible to come back from major injuries to live a good life. Tough situations are scary and cause a person to shut down.

Tough situations can become a catalyst for growth and renewed relationships. It is possible to remain positive regardless of your circumstances. Roadblocks are opportunities to develop different paths to our desired outcomes. We can change our entire perspective with a simple YES!

What if you …
  • Showed people how to walk through their struggles without losing hope?
  • Could encourage others when they are dealing with seemingly insurmountable obstacles?
… inspired people to live their best life no matter their current situation?

Andy Billman believes in the power of saying, YES! Over his lifetime, he’s faced a variety of obstacles that he reframed into opportunities he could learn and grow from. His most recent YES! was to a stage-three malignant brain cancer diagnosis in 2018. Faced with this mountainous challenge, Andy’s past, present, and future crystallized into a sense of clarity that most people do not achieve in a lifetime. 

Andy is the author of Setbacks into Comebacks: Say YES! to Overcoming Challenges and Embracing Opportunities. His mission is to help people find hope and take action by saying YES! to winning at the game of life, especially in times when it feels easier to give in, withdraw, and sleep away the pain, fear, and overwhelm. Instead of saying, “It’s over,” Andy says, “It’s the beginning. Life is what you make of each moment.” Through his writing, speaking, and coaching, Andy helps individuals identify what is most important to them,

find the courage to say YES! and then choose to live fully with the people who matter most.

Former President of Worthington Cylinders, a $1.1 billion global manufacturing leader, Andrew J. Billman now focuses on investments at Tri-W Group, a private family investment group. Andy earned his bachelor’s degree in business from Miami University where he played football, was a team captain, and a three-year letterman.

Andy defines himself as a husband, father, football player, speaker, leadership coach and trainer, and author with a passion to help others realize they don’t have to experience cancer in order to find clarity and true happiness in life. He loves spending time with his wife, Jodi, and their four children Ellie, Ryan, Emily, and Owen, along with their spouses and growing bundle of grandchildren.
