We’re hiring an Executive Assistant who can help us more effectively manage our President's day-to-day, making her life much easier, which will help the whole team focus on our mission as a company. That mission is to help historically and systemically marginalized people who want to make more money. We provide executive coaching that challenges societal constraints, an empowering community, and strategic, wealth-building education. The change we want to make is a more balanced distribution of the world’s economic and political power. We will know we are successful when:
- We are the standard for business training and
- 100% of our clients who have worked with us for 12 months have begun creating the foundations for a sustainable company, and they've increased their income by 30% or more.
We believe we should all be millionaires, and we've got exciting new projects in the works… so many that we need a hand to get them all done.
And that is where you come in!
We need you to bring your organizational savvy, attention to detail, and both experience with and commitment to nurturing and supporting a high-level and incredibly scheduled creator and executive. We need you to step into the processes and systems we’ve created to manage our President’s calendar, logistics, travel, and inbox and bring your own genius. How can you help make her life easier, protect her time, and reduce the fluff from her to-do list? We have amazing opportunities begging to be taken, but we’re missing the support that will allow her to show up primed, prepped, and poppin’. Can you keep unnecessary items off her plate, prioritize her to-do list, and turn tactical assignments into documented processes that can be handed off? We want someone who’s available, highly skilled, and passionate about supporting our President.
Who You’ll Work With
This is a full-time role that reports directly to our President. You’ll work closely with our President and our Operations team.
We are looking for someone who has experience as a high-level executive assistant and also has dreams of long-term growth with Hello Seven. You must be based near Baton Rouge, LA, or willing to relocate.
This position will also require flexibility including working some occasional evenings and weekends. We run several live events per year that may require your in-person assistance.
Who We Are
Our mission is to empower women-owned businesses, Black-owned businesses, queer-owned businesses, and other entrepreneurs from communities that have been marginalized to make $1m in revenue and build wealth.

We do this by delivering top-notch executive coaching in the form of coaching programs, live and virtual events, a podcast, a newsletter, and online-based communities. We have a growing audience of 50,000 women entrepreneurs and are on a mission to serve as many women as possible.

Diversity boils down to curiosity — it is the antithesis of boredom.
Dr. Anna Powers
Hello Seven is a lot of things, but boring is not one of them. We are dedicated to a culture where everyone can show up to work as their full, authentic selves.
Diversity and inclusion doesn’t happen by accident or happenstance, it is by design. Together, we are the designers.

What We Believe In
We’re committed to growth mindset.
We challenge our limiting beliefs, biases, prejudices, and habits to create the world we want to live in.
Personal responsibility is paramount.
We are brave enough to admit when we’re wrong or when we’ve made mistakes and take the initiative to correct the issue. We are here to own our individual part in all co-created messes AND miracles.
Simplicity sustainably scales.

Momentum depends on process.
Clear process simplifies every task, and when a process doesn’t yet exist, we know creating it will move us more quickly toward our goals.
Our success is measured by the success we create for others.
When our team members and clients are successful, so, too, are we.
