N2 Publishing – Why Work For Us?


We're changing the way people know their neighbors.

N2 Publishing is America’s leading provider of neighborhood publications. Our private, highly-customized, high-quality monthly magazines help transform neighborhoods from simple places of residence into places of community. With more than 800 publications, Area Directors and their teams work remotely in 47 states (with the support of nearly 200 Home Office employees, of course), to make the magic happen.

N2 is in the business of bringing people together. Whether it’s residents finding community through a monthly magazine and a neighborhood block party or employees building relationships through a monthly work social and daily group fitness classes, we strive to make sure that building relationships is at the center of what we do.


Domenique - Admin Department

N2 operates like one big happy family... Really! From Day One, I felt welcomed and included. Everyone here genuinely cares about each other. That’s part of what makes our culture so great! When I applied to N2, I did my research. I stalked their Facebook page and their other social media pages and I knew I needed to be a part of N2! I’m thankful for an amazing company and for each and every person here at N2. I can't imagine a better place to work.

Clem - Print Department

I was originally born in Ghana, Africa. I just decided to come and build on the dream of America. I didn't have any experience in printing. I see N2 to be a place of growth and a place of learning. At N2, I'm the last person to touch the publicaitons. I proof all the magazines in order to meet the standards that consumers expect. Being the last stage, the work I put in will be a reflection of the company. For N2 to put so much trust in my hands, I deem it a great honor and a great privilege.



Karen - Technology Department

I like working with people like me. Sounds conceited, but let me elaborate. If you like to work and be around positive, hardworking, fun-loving people, then this is the place for you. The people I get the pleasure of working with love life and the challenges that come with it. N2 people are driven: not in that corporate driven way, but driven to produce exceptional work and become extraordinary people for our teams and communities. I am beyond blessed to be a part of this company!

The N2 Home Office can be summed up in one word: Electric. Anyone who walks through our doors can sense the excitement and energy.

For all our excitement, though, we make sure to keep things casual, too. Headquartered on the coast in Wilmington, NC, the casual lifestyle of beach-town living carries over into our workplace. It’s not uncommon to see team members and the C-Suite execs discussing strategy over a game of ping pong, sporting a pair of board shorts and flip flops.

But don’t let the casual nature of N2 fool you. Within each department there’s a vast array of talented personalities collectively collaborating for a common purpose. This thriving spirit of teamwork allows us to produce hundreds of unique, community-based, individualized and hyper-local publications each month in our invigorating and fast-paced office.

N2, though, is about much more than just producing awesome publications. We do love our product, but we love our people more. They are our most valuable asset. Our founders intentionally crafted a company culture that ensures a fun and healthy environment for everyone who works here: one that values personal responsibility, unity, and mutual respect for one another. N2 provides benefits to promote a healthy work-life balance, including the opportunity to work remotely, have flexible hours, and enjoy lots of paid time off each year.

All of these things make the N2 Home Office a truly remarkable place to be. If you can see yourself as part of our Home Office Team, click here.


Trey - Area Director in FL

I love working with N2 because it has become a family business. My wife actually does ad management for about 4-6 publications throughout the U.S., and that gives us the opportunity to work from home and raise our daughter from home. We don't have to worry about daycare. And that has really helped her development. She’s really ahead of the game. Her pediatrician is always impressed. A true part of that is us being at home.

Mike - Area Director in PA

I started with N2 pretty far behind the 8 ball. I was $189,000 in personal debt. This was the only thing short of bankruptcy that I could think of that could get my family out of the situation I had put us in. N2 has completely revolutionized my life. After 17 months of being in print, we’re debt free. We have our house paid off as well. In my life, it’s no longer about the car that I drive or the house that I live in or the vacation I go on. It’s really about who I can bless.



Katie - Sales Director in LA

When people here tell you that their priorities are God, family, then work, they actually mean it. They want you to stop when it’s quitting time and be with your family. I’m a carpool mom, so every day at 3 o’clock, I’m in the carpool line. And your commissions aren’t based on quotas or what you did last year. I make what I work for. I like that I can go out and sell advertisements for a product I’m passionate about, and my sales directly affect my check.


What our Area Directors do

N2 Area Directors contribute to the team by selling ads and cultivating content for their respective areas. Area Directors enjoy abundant flexibility, unlimited earning potential, and tremendous job satisfaction. So with a little product training and a lot of support from the Home Office, Area Directors have everything they need to not only manage a monthly publication in their area, but to experience unlimited success and immeasurable job satisfaction.

Why be an Area Director

  • Unlimited income potential
  • Little to no money needed to get started
  • Trade-out or barter program
  • Flexible schedule for family and personal pursuits
  • Initial and ongoing product training/support

If you wish to be your own boss at one of the nation’s fastest-growing companies, becoming an N2 Area Director can be very fulfilling. Or, if you are looking to work part-time, you can find opportunities with a local team led by one of our Area Directors. To learn more, click here.


Our Environment

At N2, our corporate culture is one of our most defining characteristics, though “corporate” hardly describes the culture at all. N2 operates more like a family, and it’s just as common to see people working together to complete a project as it is to see people shooting each other in one of our office NERF gun wars. Our leaders started N2 with a very specific culture in mind: one where people do good work, enjoy their work, and have plenty of flexibility to live life outside of work.

Our People

We truly believe that we have the greatest team of any company around. That’s because we focus on people over qualifications and personality over experience. As result, our team is made up of some of the best people you’ll ever meet. And with the right people on board, working hardly seems like work.

    I have been working at N2 Publishing full-time (Less than a year)


    Supportive management team & all the business tools necessary to succeed. The fact that N2 recognizes and values equally the importance of achieving success at work and at home. Prior to my career at N2 I worked for 10 years at a very large international corporation. You might say that where I worked was the personification of “Corporate America.” I was promoted through the ranks and worked on the management team, so I had a very good understanding of the culture within the organization. I understood well what it took to get ahead within that framework. From the moment that I began my training with N2, I knew immediately that this was a unique and vastly different company than my previous employer. The management teams are all very humble, self-effacing, supportive and enthusiastic. N2 stresses a work-life balance and puts as much emphasis on working hard to achieve business success as they put on working hard to achieve interpersonal family life success, which stands in stark contrast to my previous experience in Corporate America. Everyone I've encountered at N2 has been very supportive and kind. I truly believe N2 wants me to be an amazing success as much as I do. The company gives you a solid business plan and all the support and tools you need to become successful. One simply needs to bring their faith, hard work, determination, a degree of self-awareness, and the rest will fall naturally into place.


    That first month on the phone.

    Advice to Management

    None--Just stay humble and true to the core values this company was founded upon.
