Earl Seals

Co-Founder & President

In 2004, friends Duane Hixon and Earl Seals found themselves burnt out from their jobs and in search of a company they would both actually enjoy working for. After coming up empty handed, they decided to build the business themselves. Though their mission was all about providing an amazing work life for team members, they also understood the woes of the small business owner – specifically, how hard it was to truly connect with local consumers.

With that in mind, they set out to create a product that would not only benefit local businesses but would have a profound and positive impact on area residents as well. N2 Publishing’s neighborhood magazines were born. Today Duane (CEO) and Earl (President) are still at the helm of N2 Publishing as co-founders, keeping the same company mission alive since day one. and Duane talking

“N2 has never been a company that shys away from helping our team members beyond the office walls.”

Have you heard about or witnessed something that changes your life forever and compels you to take action? For N2 Publishing, it’s the epidemic of modern-day slavery.

Spools of purple thread

An estimated 40.3 million people today are victims of modern-day slavery – some in third-world countries and some in our very own communities, all of whom deserve freedom. N2’s goal is to bring hope to the hopeless. Through our giving program, N2GIVES, we work to raise awareness of human trafficking and fund the nonprofits whose people are out on the “front lines” taking action.

Since 2016, N2GIVES has donated $13 million+ to support organizations that rescue and restore the lives of victims.
