A Bit About Jill Stanton
Jill Stanton is one half of Screw The Nine To Five and the founder of Millionaire Girls Club. Keep an eye on this one because she's launching a brand new podcast in a few days themed around a lot of what we talked about in today's interview.
She has been building businesses with her husband since 2012 and they've done some amazing work but the truth is even Jill has dealt with some of the doubts that the rest of us have. You know that icky feeling when we compare ourselves to others?
Well, it's time to kick that to the curb because it is getting you nowhere…fast. Jill was doing that with her own husband. She wasn't as structured as him or logical, etc., and she allowed that comparison to rob her of the amazing gifts she does have.
And now that she's finally turned that messaging around, Jill is totally crushing it, and we can't wait for you to do the same.
It's all about keeping a growth mindset. Which is so, so hard. We're conditioned to fear growth, but amazing things happen when we actually decide to step into it. And you are so deserving of that greatness!
That First 100k
So you're here because you want to know how to make that first 100k. What's the secret? The strategy? The formula?
Well, it's pretty simple, actually. And it all starts with your mindset. That conditioning we were just talking about. Yeah, it goes wayyy back to how we even conceptualize money. Maybe, you grew up thinking that making money is somehow evil or wrong. That all wealthy people are just greedy monsters.
I want you to think about how that may hold you back. I know you're not an evil person looking to bleed people dry. So let's start by understanding that money is a tool. We completely assign its value, not the other way around.
To make that first dollar, you have to BELIEVE you can do it. The same goes for that first hundred and thousand and so on.
The Three Steps You Need to Take
#1: Radical Responsibility
Jill Stanton strongly believes that this is one of the most influential and common traits in successful entrepreneurs. You are responsible for your experiences in life. You get to decide how you show up. You are in charge of your response.
When you fully understand this concept, then you'll realize that you are the only one holding you back. You'll finally see how much power you have in your own life.
And I know changing your belief system is no easy feat. To get started, it's important to build your awareness muscle of acknowledging your current beliefs. It can be uncomfortable to create this kind of awareness.
#2: Thought Stacking
Have you ever compared yourself to another entrepreneur online? Maybe for you, that looks like she's younger than me, or I should be further ahead by now.
Or she makes it look so easy. Or she looks better than me. She's smarter than me. She has a bigger team, she comes from a better background, she makes more money, she has a bigger audience. Honestly, the list is ENDLESS!
It's the place where you just keep thinking negative thoughts over and over, and it starts to build so much momentum that it feels like you're spiraling. Jill calls this thought-stacking. That first negative thought builds on another, and the vicious cycle continues.
It's the reason that thinking positively can be so difficult because we've trained ourselves to do the opposite. Negative thoughts are just so much more impactful than positive ones. So the key here isn't to just try to think more positively but instead limit negative thoughts.
Catch those thoughts and acknowledge them for what they are! They don't serve you. Release them!
Catch, Cancel, and Correct!
#3: I Am Statements
Don't just start lying to yourself. Your brain won't believe it. Instead of jumping into just telling yourself that you're a millionaire, tell yourself that you are getting better at handling finances. Or that you are on your way to experiencing wealth.
