Take the High Road with Andy Heller | Episode 115
Show Notes

Joining us today to talk about the book his own divorce journey inspired, is Andy Heller, a real-life “Eric Wolf” who’s reached the other side and aims to help others through the process. Andy is a successful businessman with two real estate books under his belt, and who had neither the need nor intention to write another book. That was until his own divorce illuminated the need for a one-stop self-help book for those navigating divorce.

In this episode, we hear what inspired Andy to write Take the High Road: Divorce with Compassion for Yourself and Your Family, and how it differs from other divorce-centric self-help books. We discuss the common mistakes people make when negotiating a divorce, the value of therapy for both you and your children, and why you should consider getting a co-parenting counselor on board. Tune in to hear Andy’s pre and post-divorce tips, as well as how best to communicate with a former spouse, particularly in an adversarial relationship.
