What’s up! We’re Jill & Josh Stanton. And we’re the chief Screw’ers around these parts.
Wait. That didn’t sound right.
What we mean is we’re the duo (and happily married couple) behind Screw The Nine to Five, where we help ambitious entrepreneurs (like YOU) create the life of their dreams by building their own online business.
Today, our life is a lot like a dream...
We have a multi 6-figure business that we run while traveling all over the world (hello, Thailand, Vietnam, China, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, Costa Rica and Canada)— and loved every moment of it. But this wasn’t always our reality.
Before we were traveling the world, helping others bust free from their cubicles, we were working our butts off to nail our ideal business. Fun fact: our very first business together was a sweet, little skincare website which we started in 2012.
It wasn’t until our wedding week in 2012, while enjoying beautiful Costa Rica, that we realized: we could help others experience the same level of success and freedom that we had created for ourselves. And just like that: Screw The Nine To Five was born. Pretty adorable wedding night story, right?
With all of our excitement and commitment to Screw The Nine to Five, we dove right on in, head first...
To be honest, we didn’t really know where to start, or what to focus on first (if anything!). So we just worked like mad, trying it all, teaching everything we knew to aspiring entrepreneurs.
Did this way of doing things get the job done? Yes.
Was it a lot more crazy than it needed to be? Also: yes.
Before long, we were living in Thailand, and we became part of an awesome community of entrepreneurs called The DC. This community gave us the opportunity to be surrounded by some truly rad humans - people who really “got” what we were trying to do, and were also equally committed to personal and professional growth.
It was then that we realized how crucial it was to our success to have a supportive, understanding community to help us navigate our business growth.
