Jill Stanton of Screw the 9 to 5 is my guest this week on the podcast. Sheâ€™s a true force to be reckoned with in the online lifestyle entrepreneur space, and Iâ€™m really excited to be speaking with her about how she has created a lively, exciting brand and community thatâ€™s built from an authentic and interesting space. Having started in 2012 with an affiliate skincare site, and changed and shifted the focus and approach of her business, Jill and her now husband Josh, have grown their business into a full time gig with a team. And now, with their new son, Kai here, they are looking at how they shift their business again to include time and space for a child.
Jill and I have a very fun, fast paced discussion about how she has evolved her online business over the past 6 years. She started in the beauty and skincare business, and met her husband Josh who was using social media to support venues while he was a bartender. The two joined forces, and took their collective knowledge to create the business â€œScrew the 9 to 5,â€ which started as a dream on a beach in Thailand.
