WELCOME! I’M DAN HOLLOWAY, I STARTED MY FIRST BUSINESS, SCRAP THE 9 TO 5 IN SEPTEMBER 2016

When I first started the company I was trying to start my own online business. My intention was purely to escape my corporate career which was sucking all the joy from my life. But once I achieved that freedom it grew into so much more. I wanted to make a difference to other peoples lives by helping them achieve the same freedom I’d found.

Now, my company’s mission is to empower 1 million people who believe that their lives are worth more than working for someone else in the corporate rat race, to realise that dream and make it their reality.

WORLD TRAVELLING ADVENTURES

In September 2017 I packed my bags for 15 months of almost solid traveling and adventuring. Continuing to build Scrap the 9 to 5 (and my second and third companies) from my laptop in coffee shops and co-working offices around the world.

Coming towards the end of 2018, whilst travelling around Asia, I started asking some bigger questions. Questions like “what’s my purpose?”, “what’s the legacy I’m going to leave behind?”, “will the world be a better place because I was here?” and so on…

Going into 2019 I started to get crystal clear about exactly what I could give back to the world. How I could truly empower others the achieve their best life.

LIFE MASTERY

I realised that the people who tend to successfully achieve their ultimate best life, are generally the ones who have been able to create time, financial and geographical freedom first – especially if they’ve done it doing something that they love.

People are truly free to flourish when they’re empowered, in control of their own lives and connected with like-minded people. It’s a lot harder to become totally awesome in all other areas of life if you’re trapped in an unfulfilling career trading time for money working for someone else…

A BIT ABOUT MY OTHER COMPANIES

A BIT ABOUT MY OTHER COMPANIES

After starting Scrap the 9 to 5 I created my second company, a small web design agency using exactly the same skillset and experience I’d gained along the way.

I started it purely so that my younger brother, Jason, could run it, freeing him from his crap unfulfilling job and allowing him to pursue his passions.

Now he works with my first company (Scrap the 9 to 5) as a mentor, technical assistant and team support specialist. Building websites now and then as well. Here’s us a little younger than we are now…

The third company (which is still a work in progress) connects and supports successful entrepreneurs to start tackling larger issues, heavily focused around positive impact and sustainability.

This environment gave way for the fourth company, which is an eco-friendly, plastic-free, non-harmful chemical, vegan-friendly bamboo cosmetics company.

Our first major prototype will be coming to market soon. Again, I built this company using the skills I learned from SFM and Stuart Ross.
