Job Description

About us:

Our mission at EMyth is simple: to help every small business owner create a business they love leading and a life they love living. We pioneered the business coaching industry back in 1977, which led to the release of The EMyth Revisited by our Founder Michael E. Gerber. It's since become one of the 10 best-selling business books of all time and has inspired millions of business owners to work on their business, not just in it. Based on the principles of the book, our Coaching Program is designed to help business owners make the transition from Technicians, whose businesses work because of them, to Entrepreneurs, whose businesses can flourish without them.

EMyth has developed, over decades, proprietary business development products and services designed to assist business owners in building a business that works. The EMyth Approach and the EMyth Coaching Program together provide a comprehensive system with a proven methodology and set of practical tools.

EMyth is a proud equal opportunity employer. We strongly encourage applications from all people regardless of race, national origin, age, sex, gender identity, gender expression, protected veteran or disabled status, religious affiliation or sexual orientation.
