My mission is to teach you how to be successful in all areas of your life - financial, health, romantic, and everything in between.
If there's one thing I've learned from working with dozens of clients, it's this...
You cannot succeed without helping others achieve.
I've built both of my current businesses on this premise, and I live it every day. Being of service to others makes me feel incredibly fulfilled and happy. That's why I share so much of what I know for free (on the podcast and the blog).
Who is Bill Widmer, Really?
AND WHAT MAKES HIM QUALIFIED TO TEACH ME ABOUT BUSINESS OR LIFE?
I'm a self-taught entrepreneur in my mid-20's with over 5 years in business. Like so many others, I could not continue working for someone else for meager pay and zero purpose.
If you've ever worked a job you absolutely hated, you know exactly what I mean. A bad job can suck the soul right out of you. In 2013, I quit my last "normal" job at Starbucks and opened my first business—selling promotional products.
In fact, here's my first ever logo...
Not the prettiest thing ever, but not bad! Can you tell I like orange and blue?
Since then, with the help of my fiance and business partner Kayla (who you'll soon hear about), I've opened over half a dozen more businesses.
CLIENTS WE'VE WORKED WITH
I've also written over 1,000 articles for over 50 publications. You can say I'm a bit obsessed with writing!

How My Story Transpired
WE LIVED IN AN RV, TEAM WIDMER BEGAN, AND AN IDEA WAS BORN
Right out of college, Kayla and I couldn't decide where we wanted to live. So we sold everything and lived in an RV. Why not, right?
We spent six months going up and down the east coast, starting in Maine and ending up in Georgia. It's during this time we started The Wandering RV—originally to document our travels, but it grew to be much more.
It became my SEO guinea pig.
We were already seeing SEO success with our clients. Why not use it to make money from our own business?
Six months after starting, we ranked #2 on Google for our first keyword, "RV Space Saving Ideas". Fast forward to today and we're ranking for over 36,000 keywords for a total of over 4,000 daily organic pageviews.
Also during this time, we decided to bring Kayla into both businesses as a full-on partner. Up to this point, she'd been helping me a lot by working multiple jobs, taking on some of our client work, and editing my articles.
Team Widmer was born.
That beautiful woman suddenly became even more important to me. I didn't think that was possible! (That amazing resort behind us is where we're getting married, by the way!)
During our time on the road, I had a thought—I should make a podcast. It's been a recurring thought for years. But I didn't, and life went on.
From Then to Now
& LAUNCHING THE PODCAST
Here we are, 2 years after wrapping up our time in an RV. Kayla and I got engaged last year and I finally felt the time is right to launch that podcast I've always dreamed about.
I engaged to her at the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park at 5 AM. We were the first to see the sunrise in the entire US, and it was magical.
But that was back in June of 2018. Five months later—in later November—I was feeling pretty down on myself. The businesses were going well, but I was bored of everything. I didn't have a passion project to pour my creative energy into.
Kayla and I were talking, and she told me I should finally start a podcast.
The thought had been sitting in the back of my mind, waiting for me to grab it by the horns and dive in. Something switched on inside me that day. I knew I was born to do this.
I had already conquered writing—I'm an author of several eBooks and thousands of articles that get over a million collective readers per month. It was time for a new content medium.
The Better Life, Better Business podcast hit the shelves on January 1st, 2019.
I took the podcast from idea to launch in just over 30 days by following the guidance of Pat Flynn's Power-up Podcasting course, Stephen Woessner's Profitable Podcasting book, and Lewis Howes' Podcasting course on CreativeLive.
It wasn't easy. But it wasn't that hard, either. Passion & purpose guided my hand.
Why I Do What I Do
IT'S NOT ABOUT MONEY OR TO SHOW OFF
My family (including my yet-to-be-born children) guide almost everything I do. My relationship with Kayla is one of my highest priorities. The best part of my work is that it allows me to plan my life around my family, not around business.
As you read my blog and listen to BLBB, you'll also learn that:
I BELIEVE IN LIFE-LONG LEARNING
I read and journal every single day. Lewis Howes is one of my biggest inspirations. I plan to be on his podcast one day!
I'VE SPENT OVER $40,000 ON ONLINE COURSES
I also have a Bachelor's in Marketing from Penn State—the courses had a much better ROI.
I LOVE FITNESS
My goal in 2019 is to reach 175 lbs of muscle (I'm at 160 right now) and bench at least 225 lbs...
And no, it wasn't always that way.
OUR CAT LUNA
Kayla found the little guy on your right in a box on the side of the road when he was just a kitten. Can you believe he was the run of the litter?!
I'M A MASSIVE VIDEO GAME NERD
World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy...
I could go on. Kayla and I both love video games.
