We are a brain trust of the most accomplished entrepreneurs on the planet, helping others grow their business and live a better life.

We write stories for top publications and specialize in crafting exquisite feature profiles on extraordinary entrepreneurs that tell their life story or share their expertise. Examples:

Weʼre growing rapidly and looking to add another world-class writer to our team. We promise at least $1,000/month of work to begin with (assuming your 60-day trial goes well). If your writing performs well, we'll likely accelerate to $3,000/month or more for the foreseeable future.

Everything is ghostwritten, and your byline will not appear (articles publish under our organization's name), but youʼll get to learn from and interact with some of the smartest entrepreneurs on the planet (our clients). And your work will leave a legacy that inspires thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs (our articles get 100k+ views on average).

This is a flexible remote position. You'll be part of a global team and can work from anywhere in the world (as long as you have a reliable internet connection).

● Can you work incredibly hard to produce outstanding work that positions our clients as rock stars? 

● Do you want to join an elite team that will hold you to an unreasonable standard, but treat you like family?
