    I have been working at N2 Publishing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My wife and I had talked about working together in business but had no idea what it would look like. We knew we wanted more freedoms with our time and we wanted to be able to raise our kids and not have a daycare do that for us. This was our simple vision 3.5 years ago when we took a leap of faith with N2. In that time we've met many incredible business owners that we work with in the community and residents that love participating in the publication and look forward to getting it each month. The community has really adopted us and we are able to raise our little girl and experience parenting in a way that many people do not get to. After 9 months of being in print with N2 my wife was able to leave her job in HR. And after 12 months of being in print we passed the income of our previous combined salaries. N2 has exceeded our expectations.

    The business model is almost as incredible as the people that make up the culture. The support that we have is exceptional as a franchise owner. I really appreciate the N2 Culture Deck and being apart of a company that does what they say they will do and treats people the way they would like to be treated. We truly have ownership over our business with this franchise model and there are many other business models where the business OWNS you!

    Cons

    We don't get to see some good friends very often that my wife and I have made because they live in other parts of the country.

    Advice to Management

    Let's bring a client appreciation event to the Northwest in 2018 like we recently did in the Midwest to share on a larger level the positive changes that are happening through N2.

    I have been working at N2 Publishing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Corporate Support in NC is amazing all around!
    Flexibility in creating your own schedule.
    User friendly software.
    National Network, providing proof to our product & values.
    Organized.

    The opportunity to work with N2 has fulfilled career character desires on many levels! Being a single mom, with compact working hours, N2 provides me to have time with family and an income to maintain a generous lifestyle! N2 inspires you to grow professionally and personally, which allows you to "Work with Intent" each week toward new goals. You can continue to grow your business at a pace that works best for you and your family's needs. Thank you N2!

    Cons

    Really can not say there are many cons! Self motivation and working with intent is a qualification; however, because the position itself calls for daily rejection. Though the overall wins and reaching your "WHY" outweigh this con.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain employee empowerment and do not become a company of "SALES" and numbers entirely. Keeping in mind that ADs are here because of the job environment they can create in their business and looked management as a tremendous support, but not a daily report.

    I have been working at N2 Publishing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    What an amazing company. N2 gives you the support, tools and freedom to make your own way, owning your own business, and setting the path for yourself that you envision for yourself and your family.

    The best part of the N2 program is by far THE PEOPLE. The people in the community you serve as well as the people within N2.
    Then, top PROS are also the flexible schedule (perfect for juggling family) and our unlimited earning potential. Our potential for success in this business is only limited by ourselves -- otherwise, your ambitions and imagination can carry you wherever you want to go.

    Cons

    It's hard to think of cons. Because you run your own business, with the support and guidance of N2, as you GROW, you can off load by hiring your own staff, tasks that you'd prefer not to coordinate directly anymore.
    I guess, just balancing your SCHEDULE can become tricky as you choose to take on more responsibilities (which I have). There are only so many hours in a day!

    Advice to Management

    I prefer to work on these through the leadership track. If there were a magic wand for keeping out the bad apples, please find it!

    I have been working at N2 Publishing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Being your own boss.
    The positive income you make.
    The flexibility of the job.
    The joy out of making residents day by featuring them.

    I have worked for myself all my life. I bought a Ford dealership when I was single and 24 years old, added a Napa Auto Parts and Ace hardware to the mix over the 20+ years. I owned those businesses.
    After selling out of those businesses in 2007 I found N2 publishing. The best way to put it is I wish I had found n2 earlier. There couldn't be a better job out there. You know things are good when you absolutely love what you and do and you make a great living do it.

    Cons

    We do actually have to work.

    Advice to Management

    Management couldn't be better.
    They care about the little guys in the company.
    There is no doubt that they care more about our experience and welfare than the bottom line. The bottom line is important but not the only factor
    involved in the decision process.

    I have been working at N2 Publishing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good financial opportunity, great team atmosphere, excellent training, a corporate culture of giving back and a culture that truly cares.

    N2 has given me the opportunity to have my own business and make a difference in my community, provide a substantial income and become a better person. Our culture is top notch, the N2 team cares for one another in a way I did not experience in corporate America. We are challenged to move beyond our limiting beliefs and be the best person we can be.

    Cons

    Flexible schedule can be a con if you don't manage your time wisely.

    Advice to Management

    Provide additional alternatives for Area Directors to create more income through products associated with our publications rather than just ad revenue as the single source of income. Most of our new products are not open to existing AD's unless they sell their current business.
