How many Mondays have you woken up with that sinking feeling in your stomach?

You know what I'm talking about...

That feeling you get each morning when you know you have to go to a job you hate. That feeling you try to numb by telling yourself “At least I have a paycheck coming in.” Ugh.

Enough is enough.

When did it become okay to just “live for the weekend”? Or two weeks of vacation...per year? Bleh! You deserve better than that.
You deserve a life that lights you up inside. A life you feel proud of. A life where you call the shots. A life where you jump out of bed with an enthusiasm that makes others kinda want to gag. We can help you create that life...minus the gagging.

Think that sounds too good to be true? It's not.

Welcome to Screw the Nine to Five!

What is the Screw?

Screw the Nine to Five ain't your average “lifestyle business” blog. You won't find us preaching on taking your “passion” and turning it into profits. I mean, sure, it's nice to have a passion and be able to monetize it. But honestly? Most of the time people struggle to identify what they truly feel passionate about. Which usually leaves them feeling paralyzed and full of self-doubt. And that feeling sucks.

Instead, we believe you can take what you know from your 9-to-5 job and transform it into an online business you feel proud of. Don't believe us? Take our 1 minute quiz and learn how to transform your day job into an online business.

Or you can sit back, relax, grab a glass of something (preferably alcoholic) and let us talk about ourselves in a totally non-third person way. Because those kinda bios make us cringe.

Or if you’re feeling fired up, skip down to get started already »

Take our 1 minute quiz and discover how to transform your 9-to-5 job into an online business.

TAKE THE QUIZ

Whattup, yo!

Okay we realize that “Whattup, yo” is probably not how you're supposed to kick off a fancy schmancy bio, but really? We ain't fancy. In fact, we're anything but. We swear. We tell inappropriate jokes. And we believe that business shouldn't be boring; it should be a fucking blast! So with that being said...

We're Josh and Jill Stanton and we're the chief Screwers around these parts.


Wait. That doesn't sound right. What we mean is we are the co-founders of Screw the Nine to Five – our little slice of the internet where anyone with a penchant for living life on their own terms can come and connect with other rebellious rule-breakers.

So how did we even get started with the Screw? Funny enough we came up with the idea on our wedding week. Yeah. The ONE week where you probably shouldn't be working.

However, we're a coupla crazy people who eat, breathe and sleep online business so what else were we going to do? Relax?

Playah please. You see, back in late 2011 we decided to test out what it would be like to build a business together. So we started a small affiliate site to see what would happen. Fast-forward many months of hard work, caffeinated late nights and over 30 websites later and we were able to build our business up to making over $10,000 a month—allowing us to live and work anywhere we wanted.

Was it easy? Helllllll no. There were a lot of face palm moments, angry typing, demonstrative hand gestures and some heavy swearing (obviously!) throughout that first year. But you know what? It was SO worth it, and we wouldn't trade one minute of it. Because now we not only have the ability to do whatever the heck we want, wherever the hell we want, whenever the eff we want, but we have the knowledge and skill to help YOU do it too.

So what have we done since building this business of ours?


JANUARY 2012

On a snowy, gloomy day in Toronto while feeling disenchanted with our separate businesses and searching for a change, we decided to go into business together and create our first affiliate site. This little skincare site would eventually become one of our biggest money-makers for the first 2 years of our business, but at the beginning it felt like a pure struggle.

DECEMBER 2012

In December, after nearly 3 years of being together we headed down to Costa Rica and got hitched!

It was one hell of a bash—complete with a late-night pool party that had everyone in the pool with their clothes on— and hands-down the happiest day of our lives so far...

Jill and Josh move to Thailand

JANUARY 2013

Once we had made it official, we decided it was time to strike out on our own and make building our business a priority. So we left everyone and everything we knew and loved behind and moved over to Thailand!

This was also the birthplace of Screw the Nine to Five and we created our first version of the Screw on this very patio.

JUNE 2013

That move paid off for us in BIG ways and within 6 months of moving to South East Asia and working on our business full-time we welcomed—with open arms, huge smiles and a big sigh of relief!—our first $10,000 month!

APRIL 2014

Finally, after 2 years of running affiliate sites we decided to start teaching what we knew on the Screw and created a premium training program.

Lifestyle Affiliate was born in April 2014 and became our first successful program that teaches our exact system for creating small niche websites that make money while running on autopilot.

Screw U is born

SEPTEMBER 2014

As our business started to grow we noticed our audience starting to evolve from those who wanted to make passive income online to those who wanted to create a viable business online that not only meant something to them...but truly helped people. We listened and in September decided to create our flagship program, Screw U!

Since that moment we haven’t looked back and are fortunate to have helped loads of 9-to-5’ers take what they know from their day job and transform that into profitable online businesses.
