What’s Up! We’re Jill & Josh Stanton

We help people escape the 9-to-5.

Before starting the screw, we were running other online business together since 2007. We first started out building content sites in over 30 different niches that earned money by reviewing and recommending high quality products.

In other words, we've been around long enough to know what “Geocities” means. Since then, we've focused our efforts on developing this community and support people in their efforts to leave their jobs behind and build a business that matches their desired lifestyle.

Our brands have been featured on Forbes, Entrepreneur, Inc and Business Insider. We've also had the honor to share our insights on popular podcasts like The Online Marketing Made Easy Podcast by Amy Porterfield, The Chalene Show by Chalene Johnson, Entrepreneurs On Fire by John Lee Dumas The Chris Harder Show and many other top rated podcasts.

You can follow us on Instagram or YouTube plus listen to our podcast on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

How Our Work Will Benefit You

We're an advocate of only doing the things that get results as quickly as possible. Which means we won't be telling you waste your time on meaningless strategies or complicated business models.

In other words we find real strategies that are working today and explain them in a way that is easy to apply to your business.

We focus on topics like…

  • What type of business is best for YOU
  • How to promote and sell your offers
  • How to build a customer list vs a list of freebie seekers
  • How to create offers that convert
  • How to use paid advertising to scale your business
  • How to optimize your lifestyle for maximum success
  • And much more

Most of all, we show you practical way to introduce these strategies into your existing business.

Many of the topics we write about aren't our own. They are ideas we discover and build upon after researching and testing in our own business and with our private clients. Because the market is always changing, we look for what is working the best right now or proven principles that have stood the test of time.

We consider it our job to find the best ideas and explain them in a way that is actionable and easy to implement into your own business.

We believe that one persons ideas are not the answer. Instead, by looking at what the entire industry is doing, we can pull together all the best ideas and sift through them to find the best solutions.

We don't claim to have all the answers and we still have a lot to learn, but we're happy to share what we've discovered so far. Our ideas aren't the only way to think about building a business, but it's how we think about it. Hopefully you'll find it helpful as well.

What Is Working The Best For Us Right Now?

Right now we're helping a lot of people take their knowledge and experience and turn it into an education/coaching business and the opportunity is MASSIVE in 2023.

We find that most coaches, spend far too much time building a free audience (AKA: email list, social media followers) and not enough time building a customer list.

Secondly, there's way too much emphasis on getting new clients and not enough on developing offers that produce incredible results for the people you serve.

That's why we created a crash course called “The Paid Launch Formula“, which is designed to show you how to run a low-cost, multi-day virtual event like a workshop or a bootcamp to attract more of your best clients and convert them into your BIG offers where you can truly transform their lives.
