Aging Media Network Serves Senior Care Professionals, But Its Business Model Is Young at Heart

[caption id="attachment_162389" align="alignright" width="270"] John Yedinak[/caption] John Yedinak, CEO of Aging Media Network, jokingly refers to himself as a college dropout who went to work with his “really smart brother,” George, to try and make his own business work.

Aging Media Network launched as a digital-only B2B publisher with two brands—Reverse Mortgage Daily, which John launched in 2006, and Senior Housing News, launched by George in 2008.

The company is also turning a profit and growing in both revenue and staff size.

Folio: You recently told us you were profitable and growing. So looking back eight years, is Aging Media where you hoped it would be in 2020? John Yedinak: When we started the business we really wanted to figure out how to survive. We had two publications at the time. We thought if... Continue reading at 'Folio Magazine'
