WANTED: Part-Time Personal/Business Assistant for Fun and Fast Growing Online Transformational Coaching Business and Coach Training School

 

The Little Volcano is a rapidly growing Online Transformational Coaching Business and Coach Training School and we are seeking an experienced Business/Personal Assistant to play a vital role in developing, planning, supporting and implementing organizational projects and priorities.

 

We are rapidly expanding from a micro-business where the Founders of the company run almost everything to a small-team based operation with Team Members all over the world. We currently have a team of about 12 people either working for us as coaches, financial support staff, part time assistants and event planners, and project based social media and marketing people.

 

We believe:

  • In the magic that happens when you combine powerful transformational work with practical application, accountability and action steps.

  • That there are too many creative and passionate people out there suffering in scarcity because they simply don’t have the tools or mindset needed to create the life they want.

 

That’s why it’s our mission over the next 5 years to touch the lives of hundreds of thousands of people through live events, coaching and training programs to inspire people and give them the tools to become empowered creators of their own lives.

 

We have a small but mighty team right now and we’re looking for another to support our expanding student community and our larger Active Volcano Family. We want to make sure that everyone who joins us receives a super-high standard of support on their transformational coaching journey.

We want to provide the strategy, support and inspiration for all those who choose this journey alongside us.

Our team is committed to:

  • Authentic self-expression

  • Constant growth and evolution (especially when it hurts)

  • Compassionate and direct communication

  • Personal accountability and taking full responsibility for our own success

  • Playing “full out” and striving for excellence

  • Modeling our values at all times

  • And co-creating an extraordinary experience for our tribe.
