Success Coach and Graphic Designer for the Aligned Business™


Get paid to design, and support humans in living their dream lives!

If it sounds like a dream come true to use both your intuitive smarts and graphic design skills to support and guide entrepreneurs in making their big dreams come true — while working in whatever pants you want to wear while getting on zoom — keep reading.

Many designers right now are working hard to grow their own businesses — the marketing, the sales, the contracts, the scrolling on Instagram… ahhhhh. The life-changing work you thought you’d be doing when you started your business or left design school? That’s not happening near enough now that you’re trying to do all the things in business too.

You’ve also realized that while designing is a passion, so is supporting others in big ways. You have a heart for mentorship and coaching, and would be so freaking excited to be able to utilize this in your career.

Imagine being able to mix both of your passions— supporting online business owners to reach their life and business goals, digging deep into the soul and strategy work with them, and being able to design and flex your creative muscles on a weekly basis. What if your days were filled with this fulfilling work, where you can end each day closing your laptop knowing you made a big difference and have that sense of accomplishment?

Maybe you’ve been working in another business as a coach, business strategist, or designer. You might feel like the work you’re doing is repetitive, lacks a real sense of fulfillment, or your ideas are getting turned down and you don’t feel like you’re making a real impact with the work you’re doing. Imagine being able to tangibly see how your ideas and work are transforming the lives of the people you’re working with! How would it feel to use both your strategic smarts in business, your love for design, and your deep heart for supporting others in one job?

You might be the kind of person who is always seeing the big potential people have to make amazing things happen in their lives. You always want to support people to bring these things to life! We know that when our students are growing their businesses to support the lives they want to be leading, they need solid support, accountability, and strategy to get them there — especially our design business owners. With this position you will be able to guide students to reaching their dream goals in a unique way for each student. While we have amazing support and strategies to back you up, everyone’s individual lives and plans are different — and you will be the go-to guide to support your students in this journey of building their businesses!

You also know that running and growing your own business is not for you long term. While you love the spirit of the entrepreneur, the daily stressors that come with this are something you’re not wanting to take on. Making a solid paycheck and loving the work you do day in and day out sounds amazing!

At the Aligned Business™ we are all about supporting both our clients and our teams to literally live the life of their dreams. We are looking for a passionate Success Coach to teach and support our Aligned Business™ students as well as support us with the in-house design work to attract these aligned clients into our programs.

This is no ordinary design job, and we are not looking for an ordinary human! You know that coaching and holding people accountable to their goals is ultimately serving people, and you’re ready to live that out every day while getting paid to do what comes naturally to you — connecting, coaching, and designing. 

About Pinegate Road & The Aligned Business™, and how you will be working within the business:

You’re a designer with a passion for supporting others. While designing was your first passion, you quickly realized that what brought you the most joy, was working with others in an in-depth way. You love connecting with others and seeing how the work you do together can support them in reaching big goals — whether through design or a mindset deep dive. You love design and the freedom and flexibility to create — AND, you love working with others in a deep way and supporting them to their goals. You’re looking for a career where you can flex your design muscles and also support others as a guide, mentor, and coach.

You’re looking to work for a company that values you as a human being and helps create alignment between your life and career. Loving your day to day and doing meaningful work is important to you. You also want to be a part of a team that works together, but where you also get to manage your own time and do things on your own that move the company forward. You’re a go-getter that takes initiative and you’re excited to be a part of a team that values personal and professional growth. Does the idea of incorporating your design background with your interest in coaching and supporting others excite you? You might be the perfect fit for this unique role in our company!

The Aligned Business, a coaching business by Kelsey Kerlsake of Pinegate Road, is hiring a Success Coach & Graphic Designer! This hybrid role will be the go-to in-house designer for the company while also working one-on-one coaching students who are a part of the program. Our students are online service providers, coaches, and consultants who want to reach their visions for their lives through their business (many of whom are designers themselves!) You will have the opportunity to work with a team that loves what they do, is passionate about personal development, and feels a real sense of purpose in their day-to-day.

Sounds like a dream to coach and still have your hand in design work? Keep reading!
