For this episode of the podcast, I talk to Jill Stanton, co-founder of Screw the Nine to Five. Currently living in Vancouver (but originally from Toronto), her and her husband started an mega-successful online business because at the end of they day, they wanted to be able to screw their 9 to 5 jobs and live life on their terms.
That’s why I was so drawn to Jill’s story. She was able to finally find her passion, start a business and essentially become completely location independent. She was even able to live in Thailand for a number of years, needing only her laptop to keep her business going. But as you’ll learn in her interview, it wasn’t that easy to get off the ground. Her and her husband started a number of different businesses before finding one that clicked.
We talk more about the ups and downs of being an entrepreneur, what you should consider financially before screwing your 9 to 5, and how to not let anyone tell you what you can and can’t do as your career.
