Director of Marketing and Operations
I’m looking for an ambitious self-starter to help me systematize and scale my expanding productivity coaching business, The Forcing Function.  An ideal candidate is organized, detail-oriented, and comfortable working in an early stage startup environment with high levels of autonomy and ambiguity.

This position is for the rest of 2018, if not beyond. There will be plenty of opportunities to increase your levels of responsibility and compensation along the way.

What is The Forcing Function?

I act as the consigliere (right-hand man) to a dozen of the world’s leading entrepreneurs, helping them be more effective in their work to create more time and freedom.  

Clients depend upon me for insight on demand, whether it is deciding between potential priorities, transforming their habits, improving relationships, or overcoming any roadblocks that arise in their business or personal lives. This means becoming intimately familiar with their businesses, goals, and individual personalities as well as developing expertise in a myriad of areas related to personal development.

I love my work and I am very good at what I do.  Despite the recurring nature of 1-1 coaching, every conversation presents unique challenges and it is extremely validating to see the ripples created by the impact I have on my clients.

As for me, I have an interesting background.  I’ve had successes as a digital entrepreneur and growth marketer. As a professional poker player, I was once ranked in the top 20 online players in the world.  I once spent two years visiting 50 countries on an around the world trip. I’m fortunate enough to know and collaborate with a few of the most intelligent and talented humans on this planet.

The Forcing Function is currently a one-man show.  With most of my focus on clients, I have limited time left for expanding the reach of my business.  We will be working directly together and with your partnership, I’m confident we will be able to take The Forcing Function to the next level.

There is no speed limit for growth from this role.  If you are ambitious, this is an opportunity to shift the trajectory of the rest of your life.

  • $20/hour, 20 hours/week with a flexible schedule (US time-zone availability)
  • Remote position (work from home and become location-independent!)
  • Any books or courses related to our work together will be fully-covered

  • Guaranteed leveling up in multiple areas of your life
