Our #SMHSpotlight feature this month, Ejike, is a digital marketing manager and a businessman. He is the operations manager of ChopHubs Business Consultants, a firm that helps businesses grow through digital marketing, financial & human resource coaching services.
He takes us through his entrepreneurial journey, and how the SMH community has been a great help to him. We hope you’ll enjoy this feature as much as we did.
Ejike became a member of the community in March 2020. He tells us what prompted him to join the community:
“I wanted to find ways to increase my income and scale my existing business. I started following Moe on Twitter back in 2019 as she was always dropping very useful advice. And when I found out about Scale My Hustle, I decided to join. I felt a community of people like that would provide the encouragement and support I needed to scale. It’s been the right choice”
On what inspired him to start a business:
“The truth? Money. The need to be financially stable is my pure motivation. I want to get to a point where I can easily afford to do certain things I love, like traveling for example. I’m not there yet, but I’m definitely better off than I was before I joined SMH. What Scale My Hustle has done is help me realise the skill sets I have and find ways and motivation to monetise it.”
Ejike tells us how the community has helped his business grow:
“Where do I even start? The consulting courses showed me how to position my brand and taught me how to charge appropriately for the value of my service to the gems from members in our discussions on the group. From the discussions we’ve had in the group, I was encouraged to diversify which I did by going into trade. I’m now invested in importing tailoring materials (mainly sewing thread) and mobile phone parts. Which has been both an exhilarating and frustrating experience, but I’d say it’s been worth it.”
Good one Ejike, well done!
The community doesn’t only provide help for your business, it also aids your personal growth and development:
“SMH has set me on the path to achieving my personal goals. There are different checklists on that path, and what SMH has done is actually put me on the path and I can say even though I’m not there yet, but I’ve been able to tick some things on the list as achieved”
Scale My Hustle is doing well, ooin!
The SMH’S deep-dive sessions, exclusive to the members, are super motivating and readies its members to do it big. Here’s what Ejike says about the sessions:
“The Deep Dives have been amazing and very informative. I have a few favourites like the one with Moe on Selling, and Tomi of My Career Couch on Making LinkedIn Work for You. Since that Deep Dive session, I’ve updated my profile and received a few job offers. I never got offers before that! But I think my favourite has to be the one with Jesse on Organising your Personal Finances. He really outlined the importance and gave proper actionable advice on steps to take to organise our finances. I chose that as my favourite because there was a part of my life that really needed sorting out.”
On collaborations with any member of Scale Exclusive Circle:
“In a way. Mercy, who’s a content writer worked with me to fix my LinkedIn page. She was amazing at understanding what I needed to be done and she delivered. At the moment, I’m working on a proposal that when it’s ready I’ll present to the group with the intent of collaborations from the group. So, keep your fingers crossed, it will happen soon.”
We are looking forward to this collaboration Ejike, and we trust it’ll be a great one.
The SMH community is proud of you and we are rooting for your wins.
