018 | Jill Stanton Says Don't Believe the Hype - Overnight Business Success Doesn't Exist

This week we have Jill Stanton, who is the co-founder, along with her husband Josh, of Screw the Nine to Five. A place where unsatisfied webpreneurs learn how to eliminate the overwhelm, focus on the right tasks and build their businesses strategically.

Jill began her entrepreneurial journey back in 2006 (over 10 years ago), creating a web TV show, before web TV was really a thing. Jill and her partner poured their blood sweat and tears into the creation of this show, they had 150 episodes and really believed they were ready to start taking on sponsors. However, it didn’t quite work out that way. Jill shares the whole story!

I know it may be hard to believe, but you are not alone when it comes experiencing major business failures. Almost ALL entrepreneurs have at least one BIG story about something they launched that went completely wrong. Jill tells us her most devastating NO in this episode.

It might be hard to imagine, but almost every business, even those that seem to come out of nowhere, were not an overnight success. Every business has a (long) story!

It’s not all doom and gloom, though. Jill shares all she’s learned through her TEN YEARS in business. Trust me there’s some good stuff in here, you definitely don’t want to miss this episode!
