Screw The Nine To Five

Personal brands.

You see 'em everywhere online and we've all got a few favourites that we follow religiously.

(Come on, admit it!)

But have you ever asked yourself what it takes to build a really successful personal brand?

You know, the kinda personal brand that truly stands out amongst all the noise online AND isn't a flash in the pan success?

Well, that's exactly what Chris Ducker is dedicated to teaching entrepreneurs to build and today he's on the show breaking down the four things every online personal brand needs to focus on!

Wanna know what they are?

There's a certain kinda freedom that comes when you're business works FOR YOU, instead of the other way around.

I mean, imagine not having to worry about when the next sale is coming in!

Imaging not having to stress if you'll be able to pay your expenses AND YOURSELF this month!

And imagine having an automated system in place that allows you to put your list building on auto-pilot and wow your audience (with training so good they will think they paid for it) while you travel the world.

This isn't a pipe dream.

This is Elise Darma's (one of our beloved Screw U members) life.

And today she's on the podcast to share her best secrets for creating an automated webinar that converts so well it's completely changed her business and life!

Think automated webinars are dead?

Think again.

Eeeeek! I'm not gonna lie, Scroupies…

I've been a tad nervous for this episode to air.


Because this week Josh and I are baring it all and talking about 3 things we got really wrong in our business.

And by 3, I mean 4 because I added in another one as we were shooting. *wince*

It's not always easy admitting this kinda stuff, but we're big believers in keeping it transparent and sharing what REALLY goes on behind the scenes.

Even if it makes me want to pour a tall glass of gin.

Instead of doing that though, I'll just zip it and let you dive in.

Hands up if you want to make more (hell, ANY) passive income in your business!

I mean, who doesn’t!

After all, “passive income” is the thing online business dreams are made of!

And yet, there are so many entrepreneurs who just aren’t taking advantage of the plethora (yes, PLETHORA) of opportunities they have to generate that sweet, sweet passive income without always having to sell, sell, sell…and then sell some more.

If that’s you I think you’re gonna dig this episode!


Because this week Josh and I are jamming on 3 easy-to-implement passive income strategies really successful online businesses use and how you can get started with them.

Ready to ramp up that revenue?

You know what to do.

Ahhhh "having it all". 

It’s the dream, isn’t it?

To have everything you’ve ever wanted and have it all feel balanced and in the flow.

*happy sigh*

For so long I wondered if this was actually possible.

I mean, I had friends who had it all, but when it came to ME having it all I would always think to myself “nah, maybe one day”.

Such destructive thinking.

Fast-forward to today and I truly feel like I finally “have it all”.

What’s more is I didn’t make any monumental changes in my life.

We didn’t all of a sudden come into a huge windfall of cash.

We just made one simple change.

Wanna know what it was? 

Hit play. 

I'm just gonna come out and say it, Scroupies…

You're probably losing money in your business right now and you don't even know it!

*insert stunned emoji*

And while that is legit one of the last things we entrepreneurs want to hear, it's important to examine the revenue generating opportunities we may be missing out on.

After all, we all work so hard for the revenue we do make that when you realize you’re actually losing cash (or missing out on having more of it) it kinda stings, am I right? 

Well, allow us to help you fix that!

I'm not gonna lie, I'm excited for today's episode!

*confetti toss*


Because today we are chatting with one of our fellow Screw U members, Michael Kelly about what it really takes to build a successful SAAS (a.k.a. software as a service) business in under 2 years.

What's more is Michael is sharing how he's done it alongside his wife, Erin (without wanting to kill each other), their toddler and while travelling across the country in an RV.

Yeah, seriously.

If you've ever considered branching out of the online courses, membership sites and coaching world and doing something different, I think you're gonna want to scroll on up the page and give this bad boy a listen!

Obvious statement alert: It is noisy AF in the online business world.

From marketers dominating your newsfeed with big, bold promises to your inbox overflowing with the latest launch of the month, it can feel daunting (and let's be real, a tad overwhelming) trying to figure out how you and your business can stand out and make a splash.

That is, unless you have someone like Bushra Azhar in your corner.


Because this woman is a motha effin' genius when it comes to positioning your offers in a way that makes people trip over themselves running to get their credit cards to buy your stuff.


And in this episode Bushra is breaking down how to create “raging UTI” worthy offers people can't stop thinking about.

I know. We’ve been talking aaaaaa LOT about Facebook Groups.

But we have a good reason!

You see, when it comes to building a rabid audience of believers, we truly believe (based on our experience over the last 3 years) there is no better way to do that than with a FB Group.

And yet, when it comes to running a group (and marketing inside it), there are some pretty common mistakes we see group owners making.

So we wanted to use this episode to call out these common mistakes and give you some strategies to fix ‘em so you can amp up your group game.

When it comes to building an audience of believers and marketing your business online, there is one strategy we are die-hard believers in.

What is it?

Facebook Groups.

And while, yes, we know FB Groups aren't for everyone, they can be absolutely monumental to the growth of your business.

Which is why we wanted to use this episode to jam on why we believe starting a free Facebook Group for your brand should be one of your biggest priorities in your business if you want to build a loyal audience of lifers.

Craving that kind of connection with your audience and a dedicated marketing channel for your business, that doesn't feel like a "marketing channel"?

I'm not gonna lie, if there is one thing I love it's shining a spotlight on tenacious (and creative) entrepreneurs who never give up no matter how hard the journey may get.

I mean, let's keep it real: This world of entrepreneurship can be challenging (to say the least) and I always find it encouraging and inspiring to hear how other entrepreneurs have persevered through the ups and downs.

And today is no exception.

Because in this episode we're bringing our homie (and fellow Screw U member), Michael Kilpatrick onto the show to talk about how he transitioned his sustainable farming business into a lucrative online brand.

Okay, I’mma just come out and say it: I was a tiiiinnny bit unsure of what to expect when going to record this episode.

After all, Derek Halpern is known as one hell of an outspoken entrepreneur who ain’t afraid to say how he really feels.

And yet, he’s a wildly-successful and whip-smart entrepreneur full of stories and insights that will keep you entertained for hours!

What’s more is he’s joining me on the podcast this week and sharing 5 of his biggest life lessons for success.

I’m not gonna lie, this is easily one of my favourite conversations I’ve had in a while as it’s packed with valuable takeaways, entertaining stories and of course, some signature Halpern sassiness.

Well, it happened, Scroupies...

Our little guy, Kai officially made his debut 6-ish weeks ago and we’ve been soaking up all the baby sounds, snuggles and sweet, sweet sleep we possibly can!

I’m not gonna lie, this guy has flipped our lives upside down in the best possible way!

What’s more is he’s inspired some pretty big shifts in our business in such a short amount of time.

Shifts that were kinda unexpected, and yet at the same time, oh-so-welcomed.

So we thought we would pull back the curtain and share ‘em with you guys to see if you can relate to any of them.

Ready to dive in?

Hit play!

Imagine this: You have a passion for creating healthy food and products for your friends, family and loved ones…and when they try it, they actually like it!

So much so, you decide to see if others feel the same and you start hitting local markets…

And much to your surprise a company like WHOLE FOODS starts to notice what you've created.

I mean, it sounds like every creative's, baker's and maker's dream, doesn't it?

Until the sexy Whole Foods deal doesn't really turn out to be what you expected and you're sitting there scratching your head, wondering what is next.

Do you make something new?

Do you power through and chalk it all up to the entrepreneurial journey?

Do you *gasp* go back to a J.O.B?

That's exactly the situation Kirsty found herself in a few years back.

So, what does her business and life look like now…even without the Whole Foods deal?

Dive into this episode and see if you can relate to what Kirsty went through!

So by now you've likely heard us rave and rave (and rave!) about the power of Facebook Groups for your business and how to use them strategically to propel yours forward.

I mean, we've talked about it hereherehereherehere annnnnnnnd here!

So yeah, we're kinda big believers in the power of free communities and what it can do for a brand.

(In case you couldn't tell. *wink*)

But, what if you're the kinda Scroupie who doesn't want to run your own group…but still want to use them to grow your business?

If that sounds more like your entrepreneurial jam then I think you're gonna dig this episode.

There comes a time in your business (probably sooner than later) where you're going to realize that you can't do it all by yourself.

I mean, let's keep it real: As your business starts to grow, there is going to be a bigger demand on your time.

And, well, it's damn near impossible to do it all on your own.

Hell, you shouldn't even think of doing it all on your own.

But when should you really start building a team, what roles should you be hiring for and how do you go about finding the right people?

In today's episode we're dishing on our experience building a team (which btw has been the most challenging thing we've ever done in our business) and making recommendations on who to hire for your team and WHEN to hire them.

From under $100k to over $500k we're covering the key positions we believe are necessary for most personality driven businesses.

Wanna know what that looks like?

You've done it.

You've decided to go all in and make the transition from reluctant 9-to-5'er to an ambitious entrepreneur ready to take on the world and make your dreams a reality.

*high five*

Have you stopped to think about what that transition will look like though?

What I mean is, now that you've made the decision to go all in, what does your daily routine look like?

What measures should you put in place to ensure things don't go down hill?

How can you start bringing in some cash asap?

And who do you need to BE in order to build a sustainable business online?

That's exactly what we're jamming on in today's episode.

Itching to make the leap into full-time entrepreneurship?

You know what to do.

Imagine this, Scroupies...

You've been grinding it out in your business for what feels like eons, but you're not really getting anywhere.

There's barely any traffic coming in...

Your list isn't growing...

And worst of all, that bank balance of yours feels like it's dwindling.

Hello, stressful!

And so you make the tough call so many of us dread making: You decide you need to go back to the 9-to-5 to make ends meet.

Cue the feelings of defeat.

The thoughts of "who did I think I was anyways?".

This is it, Scroupies!

The third and final part to our organic visibility episode series...and we're rounding it out with the uber sexy topic of SEO.

Show Notes:

Ohhh ahhhh!

I know. It may not sound like the sexiest of topics, but you know what it is?

Powerful AF.


Because people. search. Google. A lot.

And if you know how to show up on Page 1, you can claim a huge chunk of free search traffic that is targeted and use it to fuel your business.

But how the eff do you do that and is SEO really "dying" like some people claim?

So, remember how last week we talked about all things visibility?

And we started sharing our process for finding, pitching and landing guest posts to boost the exposure for your business?

Show Notes:

Well, this week we're going to build upon that bad boy and dive into one of our favourite visibility strategies...

Podcast interviews!

Because while guest posts are awe.some. for building attention, your list and links to your site that can feel a tad tedious.

Podcast interviews however are more time-friendly AND they allow new audiences to feel like they are getting to "know" you faster.

How do you find the right shows to pitch and how can you avoid the dreaded pitch slap?

Visibility and attention.

Do you get enough of it for your business?

If you're listening to this episode, I'm guessing not.

Which is totally normal, btw!

In fact, we recently polled our free FB group and found out that nearly 70% of the people who participated in that poll were struggling to get the kind of traffic, visibility and attention they wanted to their site.

Show Notes:

And we get it.

I mean, damn, it's noisy online these days.

What's more is if you don't know how to land features, guest posts and interviews (and make the most of them for your business) it can be hard to stand out online and get the word out there on you and your business.

Which is exactly why we wanted to devote a series of episodes to all things visibility and attention.

Because let's face it: Attention is THE currency online, and if you don't know how to get it you may be left in the dust.

And we don't want that.

So in this episode we're kicking off the series with a strategy we used to not only get the word out there on the Screw in the early days, but it's how we built our first business as well!

What is it?

Guest posting. And more specifically, how to go about guest posting strategically.

Want some of that in your business?

Confession: We have an inappropriate amount of love for the Scroupies (in case you couldn't tell) and absolutely l.o.v.e shining a spotlight on them and all the cool things they're making happen in their business.

Show Notes:

Which is why we're kicking off a monthly Scroupie Spotlight on the podcast featuring some seriously rad entrepreneurs from inside Screw U!

Because straight up? We have some smart AF members and it's about time you got to know (and learn from) 'em.

And we're gonna kick it all of with Kaylyn Parker!

She screwed her 9-to-5 in mortgage sales last year after going all-in on her social media management business and in this episode she's sharing how she did it.

Be honest with me for a sec: Do you have a crystal-clear vision for your business?

Do you know how you want to grow it?

What your business looks like in 1 year, 3 years, hell, 5 years from now?

Do you know where you want to take it?

Show Notes:

If I'm being completely candid, this is something Josh and I ignored for soooo-ooohhhh many years with the Screw.

And I'm betting it hurt our growth without us even realizing it.

That is until now.

Because now? Now we have a vision for the Screw that spans the next 3 years and serves as our guiding light for the direction of our company.

So how did we create this vision and how can YOU create one for your business?

It's what we all want, isn't it?

To work less in our business, yet make more than we ever have?

I mean, that pretty much sounds like "the dream", doesn't it?

But how do you actually do it?

Show Notes:

Like, how can you go from over-worked in the trenches to a leader who has more time, mental whitespace and money in their business...without losing your mind in the process?

That's exactly what our buddy Dave Ruel is jamming on with Josh in today's episode.

Because it IS possible and in this episode we're going to be diving deep into the principles of efficiency and creating more space so you can breathe easier and actually enjoy this business you've built. *happy sigh*

Wanna know how the eff to do that?


Well, things are gettin' really real over here at Screw HQ and we're in countdown mode until our little baby boy arrives in t-minus 4 weeks! *pops champagne bottles* <-- JK I'm still pregnant

And since we are first time parents (and really aren't sure what kind of chaos to expect), we've been prepping our business behind the scenes for his arrival for nearly 2 months straight now!

So what measures have we put in place to ensure our business runs as smooth as possible AND we have the time to take a step back and enjoy some blissful baby time?

Real talk: Have you ever struggled to attract success into your life?

What I mean is, if you look at your life as it is today, would you consider yourself "successful"?

If you're thinking "mmmm not exactly" then today's episode is a must-listen if you want to change the story for 2018.


Because in today's episode Josh is sitting down with Jim Fortin for one of the best conversations around changing your ingrained (and let's keep it real: slightly self-sabotaging) beliefs so you can create a life you feel excited to wake up to.

Best of all, this change can start to happen today.

First though, you gotta listen to the episode. *wink*

Show Notes:

Confession: I used to seriously struggle with creating consistent content for social media.

I mean, there's just so much to do and so many platforms you "should" be on that it used to overwhelm the hell out of me.

And then I met Jasmine Star.

Have you met this chick yet?

She is one of the best social media content creators I've seen in a while and her batching game is on. freakin'. point.

So when I heard her talk about her process for creating a MONTH'S worth of social media content in a day, I knew I had to bring her on the show.

Because let's keep it real: Sometimes social media content creation can feel like a chore!

And it's about time we all got a system in place that allowed us to show up and shine on social without having to rack our brains for witty things to say.

Itching to get your hands on a simple process that allows you to create more in less time?

Click. Dat. Play button, baby!

Show Notes:

Facebook Live. Instagram Live. YouTube Live. Periscope. <-- is that even still a thing?

Whichever platform you use, there is one thing that is abundantly clear: Livestreaming is here, and it ain't goin' anywhere anytime soon.

Show Notes:

And while the idea of broadcasting live on the internet can make some webpreneurs break out in a cold sweat, it is quickly becoming one of the best and most direct ways to talk TO (not AT) your audience in real-time.

If you believe in building connection with your brand (this is totally our jam, btw) and you want to learn how to do this effectively with livestreaming AND use your broadcasts to convert viewers into customers, you're gonna want to stop what you're doing and give this bad boy a listen.

Because in this episode we are bringing Luria Petrucci onto the show and talking about how to use livestreaming strategically so that every broadcast you do is purposeful, engaging and benefits your business.

Sound like your jam?

You know what to do.

A little 2 years ago I made a big, bold claim that Facebook pages were dead to me and I was going all in on Facebook groups.

And man, did I go all in.

From creating my group from the ground up and growing it to over 44,000 entrepreneurs in less than 2 years, I was all. about. groups.

Ohhhhh man it can be a source of frustration, can’t it?

I mean, reach is down.

It’s noisy in the newsfeed.

Show Notes: 

And there is a hardcore belief that you have to “pay to play” just to make Facebook work for you and your business.

But is that really the case?

In this episode, we’re diving into the Facebook Trifecta and how to play Facebook’s game so that you not only get rewarded with reach, but your message gets in front of the people who need it and you build an organic audience of believers.

If you’ve ever struggled to figure this out and are “winging it” and hoping for the best, this episode is for you.


Because we’re giving you a straightforward system you can put into play today to find where your dream customers are hanging out so you can stop wasting time and get in front of them asap.

Have you ever looked up after months and months of working on your business and wonder why it’s not working yet?

Why you’re not really building traffic?

Show Notes: 

Why your email list isn’t really growing?

And why the actual f*ck you’re not making money yet when everyone told you it was supposed to be “easy”?

Dude. We get it.

We’ve been there.

And we’ve struggled to build momentum and get results in our businesses.

Which is why we know how freakin’ crucial this episode is to dive into.


Because in this episode we’re talking about how to validate your business idea (whether you’ve started or not) so you know if it can actually make bank online or if you should cut your losses and find a new idea.

Let’s talk about inner critics, shall we, Scroupies?

I mean, if we’re keeping it real, we all have one.

And sometimes it can feel deafeningly loud.

From wondering whether you’ll really be able to do this whole online business thing…

To stressing over putting yourself out there into the cyber-world…

To wondering what your friends and family, hell, the entire internet (!) will think if it doesn’t work out…

Inner critics can be a real beyatch.

Which is why I wanted to shake things up today and call in some mindset reinforcements.

What am I talking about?

The Screw Shrink (Heather Gray), of course!

And if you’re thinking “what the eff is a Screw Shrink?”, don’t sweat. We break it down in this episode AND Heather and I deep-dive into some of the most common fears a lot of us entrepreneurs (and wantrepreneurs) have when deciding to put themselves out there and really go for their dreams.

If you’ve ever felt alone in this journey and wondering if anyone else has ever struggled with the sometimes paralyzing fears and anxieties, give that play button a click.

Yuck! Feeling strapped for cash is probably one of the most stressful feelings, isn’t it Scroupies?

I mean, when you feel tight financially it’s damn near impossible to NOT think of it.

I remember back in early 2015 things felt suuuuper uncertain financially for Josh and I and I legit could not stop obsessing over it.

From wondering how we’d pay rent to wondering what it meant for the future our business, I stressed (and ugly-cried) a lot that month.

And honestly, I don’t want you to feel that way.

Because it’s the worst.

After all, when you’re first starting your business (and the money isn’t really rollin’ yet), it can be challenging to find the cash to continue to invest in your business.

Which is why we shot this episode.

What is it?

A sweet little money-savin’ hack Josh created that will help you save $100 which you can use to start and grow your business!

*fist pump*
