Screw The Nine to Five

Before we moved to Thailand, Josh and I felt like the only couple on this crazy rollercoaster ride of entrepreneurship. After landing in Chiang Mai, it didn't take us long to realize there were so many other amazing couples out there going through the same ups and downs as us.

One of those couples happened to be the every so British and proper Jenny and Lewis Smith.

Now, we met this twosome at our co-working space and what's so cool about them is that they started their business journey at the exact same time as us.

After honeymooning in Thailand they decided to kick those 9 to 5's to the curb and dig their heels into the world of app development. With a few successful apps on the market now (and even more in the works), there's no question that they've found their calling!

It's a wicked feeling!

Question: When you're feeling a little sick, a little "meh", a little off, do you Google your symptoms? Make an appointment with your doctor? Wallow in your own sorrow? All of the above

I have to admit, I've been known to put off doctor visits for months because it just feels like too much of a hassle to actually get my act together and go to the doctor.

I know, it's sad. And I'm lazy.

Well, what if I told you that you could hop online and book an appointment with a naturopathic doctor, get some clarity around what's going on with your body, and never have to leave your home!?

I assume you would do what I did when I heard about our guests today: Aggressively fist-pump.

Which is why we're so jazzed to have Shannon and Alexis on the show today to talk about how they took their brick and mortar businesses online, transformed their life, and are now jet-setting around the world while helping people look and feel healthier.

Think doctors belong in over-air-conditioned offices that smell like disinfectant and wear oversized white coats? Think again.

Ohhhhhh chiiiilllld I'm excited for this one! Why? Because I'm pretty damn sure that when we all start our first online business we stress over some of the most insignificant things that really don't make a difference to your eventual success.

But, of course it's hard to know that when you're first starting out.

Trust me, I speak from experience here! When we were first starting out I stressed over logos, website themes, and other useless shit that doesn't really matter in the long run.

So we decided to get real with alllll y'all and lay down some of the most common things you think you need when first starting a business, but don't!
