Hey, thanks for tuning in to another Partner Spotlight interview at OutsourceSchool.
My name is Connor Gillivan. I’m the CMO and an Owner of Outsource School.
We’re on a mission to help 10,000+ business owners master hiring virtual assistants and freelancers, and industry partnerships is a big way that we’re able to make it happen.
We’re all about creating win-win partnerships where we are able to grow with other companies in the eCommerce, agency, SAAS, and online space.
In this exclusive interview, we interview Jason Duncan from The Real Jason Duncan.
Meet The Real Jason Duncan – a best-selling author, TEDx speaker, podcaster, speaker, and coach on a mission to help 100,000 entrepreneurs find true success and balance.
With over a decade of experience as the founder of one of America’s fastest-growing privately held companies, Jason knows what it takes to build a profitable business in under 10 hours a week.
Jason‘s proven method, #ExitWithoutExiting, is all about breaking free from the daily grind of business operations so that you can focus on what truly matters in life. Through his mastermind program, The Exiter Club, his internationally-syndicated podcast, The Root of All Success, and his book “Exit Without Exiting,” Jason shares his wealth of knowledge and experience to help others achieve their own success.
But Jason‘s mission goes beyond just helping entrepreneurs succeed. He’s committed to helping 10,000 people escape poverty and mediocrity through entrepreneurship. To further this mission, he plans to start a nonprofit organization with the help of his mastermind group.
Jason is a family man based in Nashville, Tennessee, who loves spending time with his high school sweetheart and their two grown children. In his free time, you’ll find him riding motorcycles and camping.
His dedication to empowering others and his wealth of knowledge and experience make him a valuable asset to the entrepreneurial community.
Connor: Hey Jason, thanks for taking the time to chat with us here. We love getting to know our partners better so that our community can benefit from what our partners are offering and doing in the industry. To get started, can you give us a high level overview of The Real Jason Duncan and how it got started?
Jason: I am The Real Jason Duncan. I’m a renowned entrepreneur, best-selling author, 2x TEDx speaker, and podcaster, who is dedicated to helping fellow business owners achieve balance and success–no matter how they define it.
I believe that anyone can run a profitable business in under 10 hours a week, and I’ve made it my mission to show others how. Specifically, I want to see 100,000 entrepreneurs set free from the ironic prison of entrepreneurship.
I am the founder of one of America’s fastest-growing privately held companies. I started as an unemployed schoolteacher but managed to launch my own thriving business in 2010.
Today, I share my wealth of knowledge and experience through my mastermind program, The Exiter Club, my private coaching services, my podcast (The Root of All Success), and my international best-selling book “Exit Without Exiting.”
My proven method, #ExitWithoutExiting, is all about breaking free from the daily grind of business operations, so you can focus on what really matters in life. But I’m not just in it for myself; I have the vision to see 10,000 people escape poverty and mediocrity through entrepreneurship. To further this mission, I plan to start a nonprofit organization with the help of my mastermind group.
Connor: Love that! Can you dive a bit more into the business management products and services you offer? I’m sure our audience would love to know exactly what problems you could solve for them.
Jason: First and foremost, I have The Exiter Club, an exclusive mastermind meticulously crafted for male entrepreneurs who aspire to embrace what we call “the exit lifestyle.” Through this elite program, participants gain invaluable insights and strategies to liberate themselves from the day-to-day operations of their businesses.
I guide them towards creating generational wealth and long-term freedom, not only for themselves but also for their families. The Exiter Club offers a premium experience, priced at $35,000 per year, encompassing a variety of benefits. These include monthly Zoom meetings, quarterly happy hour Zoom calls, immersive weekend workshops in Nashville, and luxury retreats, where even spouses are warmly welcomed.
Additionally, I present The Exiter Program, an exceptional 12-month coaching and mastermind hybrid. This personalized 1-on-1 coaching package provides intensive support and guidance, ensuring that clients receive the utmost attention and assistance. In this transformative program, participants benefit from bi-weekly coaching calls, unlimited private chat channels, and in-person sessions.
The Exiter Program also grants membership to The Exiter Club as described above. Moreover, clients receive complimentary access to our renowned 10-Hour Entrepreneur Hybrid Course, as well as a spot in one of the four Third Mind intensives we host annually. With only seven spots available per year, this exclusive coaching package represents an investment of $125,000.
Furthermore, I offer the transformative Clarity Catalyst, a two-day immersive coaching experience that provides unparalleled support and follow-up. Priced at $25,000, this program assists clients in clarifying their business vision and strategy, overcoming limiting beliefs, enhancing their mindset and productivity, optimizing sales and marketing, and building high-performing teams.

As part of the package, they gain access to our extensive network of coaches, receive free access to the 10-Hour Entrepreneur Hybrid Course, and secure a spot in one of our highly sought-after Third Mind intensives.
Connor: Jumping off of that…if there was one problem you’d say that The Real Jason Duncan solves best for your clients, what would it be? Why?
Jason: Simply put I help give kids their dads back and wives their husbands back. I show them how to exit without exiting so that they get out of the weeds of daily operations and start truly enjoying the life that they thought owning a business would allow them to have.
Connor: As the company continues to grow over the next year, what are your plans for expansion? Any new products or offerings or enhancements to your current products and services?
Jason: Our main project for 2023 is starting the Exiter Fund, which is a private syndication for investment for members of my Mastermind and my private coaching clients. In 2024, we are going to be starting a non-profit together called Legacy Changers that will assist in helping 10,000 people escape the poverty and mediocrity mindset through the vehicle of entrepreneurship.
Connor: And how specifically would you say that The Real Jason Duncan and your team is different from other similar businesses in the coaching industry?
Jason: Most business coaches focus on teaching their clients how to scale their businesses. The problem with typical scaling is that usually includes more time and effort and energy from the entrepreneur. I’m different because I obey the universal laws that govern how we should build businesses.
For example, I teach something called The Law of the Architect, which states that there are only three core roles that an entrepreneur should be focused on as he or she is building a business.
I show my clients how to scale their businesses without increasing their time, energy, or effort. As a matter of fact, I show them how to scale their businesses, keep their profits, and make more money, by spending less time, energy, and effort on their businesses.
Connor: What’s your outsourcing story? We find that everyone has a different experience when outsourcing and hiring online. What is your first memory that comes to mind?
Jason: When I learned the power of apprenticeships, it changed everything for me. Now I have a formal apprenticeship program called “PEAP” which stands for Professional Entrepreneur Apprenticeship Program. It is designed for young men 20-29 years of age who want to learn how to become entrepreneurs.
Connor: Love it! Talking more about outsourcing, what advice would you give to yourself if you were just about to start outsourcing and hiring online?
Jason: Embrace the power of VAs.
Connor: How about this one…how do you communicate with the people you hire online? What’s your best practices there and how has it changed over time?
Jason: I am a huge fan of the Signal App. I communicate with my team members and clients exclusively through Signal. As a team, we host weekly team meetings and then stay in touch throughout the week on Signal.
Connor: Finally, this is one that I think our community will love, who’s been your best online hire? What do they do for you? Why are they your best hire? Tell us all about them and that story!
Jason: Jade. She is a my Podcast Manager. I found her through a VA placement agency and she’s been with me ever since. She handles everything related to my podcast, which includes booking guests, writing my show notes, uploading my show to the platforms, etc. I have another VA who does the podcast editing, but Jade handles everything else. She’s a rockstar.
Connor: As we close this out, I just have one more question. Where is the best place to find and follow you and the company online? Also, if you have one, is there any special offer that you’ll be offering to the community today?
