Robert and Christy Gallagher had owned independent businesses together in the past. As the couple was preparing for their daughters to go off to college, Christy was looking for a part-time job to earn some extra income while enjoying greater flexibility. Christy started working with The N2 Company as an independent contractor before the company began franchising, and she loved it from the start.
“Our daughters were getting ready to leave for college,” Christy said, “and I was looking on Indeed for a part-time gig when I came across The N2 Company. Little did I know, what I thought would be a part-time job or hobby has become a full-time business that we both absolutely love!”
“Since Rob had been in sales for most of his career, and he loved building relationships and growing a clientele, I thought he would love The N2 Company as much as I did.”
“Getting to work with amazing local businesses and residents in the community is truly a gift. Our business allows us to bring people together and bring joy to the community! We love having the ability to connect people through our highly-anticipated monthly magazines.”
“We began publishing neighborhood magazines in Orange County over eight years ago,” Rob said. “Today, we publish magazines for the Port Streets, Balboa Island, Lido Isle, North Laguna, and Corona del Mar. We work with amazing local businesses and meet residents in the communities every day. It is truly a gift. We are very honored to be community historians and storytellers who are connecting people in unique ways through our business!”
