Are you a phenomenal overachiever who loves to be social and wants to change the world in a big way? Awesome. This might be a fit for you.
ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY:
Are you obsessed with being your personal best? Do you wonder what it really takes to be deeply confident, socially successful, and genuinely happy? What if you got to spend a whole semester--- not only immersing yourself in this --- but inspiring others to do the same?
Meet “The Happy Entrepreneur.” Our highly anticipated brand, where we’ll explore just that. In this internship, you'll be doing real hands-on work crafting pitches for a movement to change how people work. You won’t just make deals, but rather you’ll change the world with us.
CONSIDER THE ALTERNATIVE:
Imagine you land an internship with a big fancy corporate company. You walk through the front doors excited to soak up anything you can learn — only to find out your responsibilities are limited to spreadsheets and Starbucks runs.
That won’t happen here.
Here, you’ll create a system and a strategy for creating HUGE deals from the ground up. Connecting us with just one promotional partner with 100,000 fans could easily result in $391,000 in sales. Imagine not only having that on your resume, but getting a percentage of the deal you close.
But this isn’t for the faint of heart. This will take your best-strategy, follow-up, creativity, and advanced social skills to make this happen.
We believe in you, and during your tenure with us, you’ll be tasked with finding potential affiliates, sponsors, and vendors, initiating and maintaining those relationships, closing deals, and developing profitable strategies that will be a win-win for everyone.
Your goal will be to increase sales through lead generation, marketing, and other corporate strategies while gaining valuable work experience and skills to start your career in business development.
MAJOR PERKS: After this résumé builder internship is said and done, you’ll be able to walk into that major company for a job interview and wow them with the major deals you were personally responsible for closing under your belt. Not only will your experience here make you a high-level candidate for any entry level job after college — but you’ll be able to earn a percentage of every deal you close in the process.
WHO ARE WE?
We're an online publishing company aiming to help overworked and stressed-out entrepreneurs take back their lives and fall in love with their businesses again. The primary way we do that is through our flagship product, Source it!, which Forbes calls "the world's premier education in online hiring and outsourcing for entrepreneurs." It also went to a multi-six figure level within our first six months of launching — no big deal.
To continue helping our audience, we're launching a new podcast — and we need a team to deliver our message to the world.
On "The Happy Entrepreneur" podcast, our CEO Bonnie Fahy will teach entrepreneurs not only how to have the best business possible, but how to truly enjoy their lives along the way through positive psychology and personal development. We believe that when people invest in their self-transformation and happiness, they can heal relationships, community, and the world.
We're a fun and friendly team who truly values the well-being of everyone we bring on board. As firm believers of the power of kindness in the workplace, we're dedicated to uplifting, supporting, and growing every person on our team. We make sure our team members have plenty of freedom and flexibility to recharge and have fun — major perks of working as a remote team!
