For our #SMHSpotlight feature this month, the limelight is on Chipo Faith Biti, one of Scale My Hustle’s esteemed community members. Chipo wears multiple hats as a B2B marketing support at KeySmart, a copywriter, a content marketer and she’s also a 2-time TEDx speaker.
Chipo is a delight in the Scale Exclusive Circle: her bubbly spirit and readiness to lend a helping hand to other community members are heartwarming. It was an absolute pleasure having this conversation with her and we hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed writing it.
“I’m a full-time remote worker. I’ve been a freelancer for the last 4 years but transitioned to a 9-5 remote job 2 years ago. I still freelance on the side, as a copywriter, graphic designer, and no-code web developer. I’ve also started coaching freelancers, writers, and solopreneurs on thriving in the digital economy.”
Chipo’s reason for starting her business:
“Money, LOL. I joke. I enjoy helping people and doing meaningful work. I realised I needed to start taking active steps to make this happen, instead of sitting. A lot of this inspiration came from conversations in the group (SEC)“
No worries about the money part, Chipo, we love money as much as you do and it’s enough reason to start a business.
Chipo had this to say about what prompted her to join the community:
“I’d been following Moe for a few months and her tweets on learning to invest in oneself with money challenged me. I was ‘broque’ at the time, but when I started my new job, I made a couple of sacrifices to raise money to join the community because I knew it really was what I needed.”
This month – April – marks Chipo’s 1st anniversary of joining the Scale Exclusive Circle. “I’m actually shocked time has flown by so fast,” she says.
The Scale Exclusive Circle is a knowledge hub where you can find practical information and tools. This is how it has helped Chipo’s business:
“I’ve learned how to talk about my services, sell my skills, take leaps of faith, and take my work seriously.”
The community is also a source of personal development. It is a community of ambitious entrepreneurs and professionals who understand exactly what you are going through – people who are ready to fight for you. Chipo agrees with this:
“I’m not the same person I was when I joined and SMH has played a major role. People push you, they root for you, cry with you where need be, and some are even ready to fight for you, haha. I’ve become more confident about my work and the value I offer. I’ve made a few friendships that have literally changed my life and I’m also a lot more organised.”
The SMH’S deep-dive sessions, exclusive to the members, are super motivating and readies its members to do it big.
These are Chipo’s favourite SMH’s deep dive sessions:
- Growing your fashion business into a Global brand – Anifa M
- Making LinkedIn Work For You – Tomi Ibirogba
- Carving an Unconventional Career Path – Titi Akinsanmi
The SMH community is very proud of Chipo, and we wish her the very best as we continue to provide her with the needed support to get to the peak.
