[TSE 103] Travel and Build a Business as a Couple with Jill and Josh Stanton

Posted on / by Natalie Sisson / in Podcast / 4 comments

103 QuoteTraveling and building a business is my jam (obviously!) and I have loved every minute of going on this journey independently. Building my brand solo has allowed me to go where I want, when I want and focus as much on my business as I choose. To be honest, I’m always impressed when I meet couples who are in business together and have to coordinate their love life and work life.

As we entrepreneurs know, building a business can be stressful, but how about adding this stress to a relationship? Many of my listeners have reached out asking what it’s like to go on this journey from a couples perspective so I went right to the source to find out!

Jill and Josh Stanton are the faces behind Screw the Nine to Five. They got their start in business together creating a string of affiliate websites that gave them passive income, and then went on to develop a personal brand to help others screw their 9-5 essentially the same way they did. Did I mention that they do all this while traveling the world?

What you’ll learn in this podcast:

  • Why Jill and Josh are big fans of affiliate marketing as an initial online business model
  • The idea that came to them on their wedding week and the evolution of their brand and business
  • What they mean by “wake up and break up” – the tip that allows them to live, work and travel together all the time
  • The difference between building an affiliate network vs. being an affiliate
  • Why they decided to take on the responsibility of building a personal brand rather than coasting on passive income
