A work-from-home leadership position

We are looking for a passionate, experienced leader to oversee YourTango Experts, a B2B division of YourTango that assists healing and helping professionals build their businesses and thrive in their work.

We are the "Experts to the Experts" in supporting professionals who provide guidance and healing in the areas of mental health, wellness, relationships, family, empowerment, "alternative" treatments, and more.

The ideal candidate has proven experience as a business leader, including P&L responsibilities, successfully managing a team of professionals, the ability to think through and execute a successful strategy, has a background in sales and marketing, is a proactive problem-solver, has enthusiasm for the healing profession, enjoys leading a team and helping innumerable individuals achieve success.

We serve as a powerful, proven marketing, coaching, PR, publishing and community resource (and friend!) for healers and helpers of all stripes: from therapists and coaches to counselors and mediators to MDs and Reiki practitioners and beyond.

This is a highly visible, very entrepreneurial, and critically important role that reports into the CEO.

YourTango's team has operated very successfully as a virtual workplace for many years. We are a close knit group of professionals that get a ton done working from our homes! We are also a collection of parents, daughters and sons, friends and family members who have serious career ambitions but who also have responsibilities to other people (and pets!) in our lives and so we are happy to offer flexibility, as needed, in our team's schedules.

- Work to raise the profile of YourTango Experts as an authoritative resource in the mental health, wellness and personal development categories by showcasing the tremendous expertise in our core categories and featuring the known thought leaders and rising stars in our space.

- Help grow this business from a small membership model to one that is vastly larger in its scale and scope, ideally building YourTango Experts into a leading B2B brand in the healing and helping space, with an eye toward things like: developing a live events component, paid programming (ideally offering CEs), robust mutually-beneficial partnerships with other organizations and more.

Daily and Monthly Responsibilities:
- Develop and oversee a successful sales and marketing strategy to scale the YTE membership
