Screw The Nine To Five

Ahhhh haters. I've had my fair share of them! From relentless bullying by a pack of stone-cold bitches all throughout high school to being called greedy pigs on the Screw, I've seen (and heard) it all. And it can really make you feel like shit....if you let it. What's more is that I'm sure it will continue to happen the more we focus on building the Screw to its fullest potential. And I'm cool with it. In fact, I expect it. Which is why I also have a few tricks up my sleeve for dealing with it. So let us break 'em down for you in today's episode.

Be honest with me for a sec... Have you ever wanted something so bad you have found yourself over-thinking it and killing it with incessant analyzing?

Whether it's in your personal life, your day job, your friendship group, your love life or your decision to start an online business, analyzing something to death only does one thing for us... It stops us dead in our tracks and paralyzes us with stress and self-doubt to the point that we find ourselves unable to move forward.

Have you ever felt that way? I know I have definitely been there. And it wasn't until it was pointed out to me *cough* many MANY times that I decided I needed to do something about it.

Well, that was back in my late 20's and I am STILL trying to hone my anti-perfectionist skills. The struggle is real, y'all! Which is why we wanted to share some of the strategies we've put into play in our business to help us to keep moving forward...regardless of whether something is perfect or not.

Ready to choose something legit and it? Sorry. I had to try and rhyme there. Well then just click play on our fancy little podcast player and learn how to stop overthinking and just take some freakin' action!

When you're first starting out and dipping your toes in the webpreneurial waters it can be downright difficult to know where you should be focusing your efforts.

Should you blog? Start a podcast? Get social and start "networking"?*gag* Pitch for guest posts? Participate in telesummits?

Oh, wait, I know! Host live webinars!! It's never-ending and if we're being honest here, it can leave you feeling, well, a little overwhelmed. Amiright? Because here's the thing... When we're first starting out we don't want to waste our time on what MIGHT work. We just want to focus on what DOES work. Lawwwd do I know how that feels.

In fact, for the first 2 years or so of our business I felt like Josh and I bounced around from idea to idea, trying almost anything someone told us we should try. Because we didn't really know better...and we just wanted something to click. Fast forward a few years and I feel like we have gotten crystal clear on what works best for us right now. The top 3? Podcasting, webinars and live events.

Especially live events. Not just because we've been able to meet some amazing friends, but because we've learned SO much as a result of putting ourselves out there, forking over the cash and showing up in "student mode" to try and take in as much as we possibly can.

In fact, in the last year alone we've hit 7 events, and what's happened as a result of them has been truly earth-shattering for our business and our own personal development.

Think live events are an unnecessary expense? Think again! And then click the play button at the top of the page and let us breakdown our 3 reasons why you NEED to attend a live event if you want to succeed in this game we call online entrepreneurship.

Well well well... Look who decided to show up again around these parts! *pssst* It's us...just in case the sarcasm was lost over the interwebs.

Yes, we've been a tad MIA this past month...and we sort of fell off the radar. But, we have a really good reason...

Because for the past month we have been drowning! Drowning in work and projects and priorities and conferences and masterminds and finding a place to it's been a bit full-on over here at Chez Stanton. And if I'm being honest, because we had such much going on we had to take a step back from the podcast to allow ourselves to catch up and get our heads above water again.

The good news? We're BACK IN ACTION, BABY! And what's more is we stumbled upon quite possibly the greatest productivity hack on the damn planet while trying to power through and get an almost-impossible amount of work completed in an impossibly short amount of time.

So we thought we would share the time management love with you and help YOU get more done than you ever thought you could get done in a short amount of time. Ready to put your productivity into over-drive and smash a bunch of projects? Y

ou know what to do...
