As rising inflation pushes more and more Canadians into side hustle to supplement their incomes, having the right productivity tools in place to help achieve entrepreneurial goals is essential.
Passion and relying on a community of like-minded visionaries are also success factors, as we discovered when we spoke to Facebook group moderators Hustle Hub by LG gram Canada, Vivian Kaye and Jonathan Cavaliere.
The two business owners have guided Canadian entrepreneurs, small business owners and visionaries through their questions and obstacles to productivity since joining the Facebook group Hustle Hub by LG gram Canada as moderators at the end of 2021.
The LG gram Hustle Hub is a dedicated virtual space that provides Canadians with valuable tools and tips, how-to guides, and compelling videos and articles on a range of business, career and market topics. LG Gram laptop owners who certify their devices can also enjoy exclusive offers and member benefits.
Kaye is CEO of KinkyCurlyYaki and a business and empowerment expert based in Hamilton, Ontario. She describes her 17-year entrepreneurial journey as “a roller coaster ride”.
“I know there are answers you can’t necessarily find by googling. So I joined the Hustle Hub community to give back, answer questions, and just be that cheerleader for up-and-coming entrepreneurs that I didn’t have in the beginning,” she told Daily Hive.
Chosen as Canada’s Best Dressed Man in 2012, Cavaliere embarked on a solo entrepreneurial journey the following year when he created a bespoke menswear brand, Mr. Cavaliere, offering bespoke tailoring services and a carefully curated menswear collection. He tells Daily Hive he’s excited to be part of the Hustle Hub because “it gives you the opportunity to [network] with other scammers who are going through similar things to you.
“Being an entrepreneur is one of the loneliest things you can do — it’s hard,” says Kaye, who sees a lot of questions from Hustle Hub members focusing on branding and social media.
“The Hustle Hub resonates with users because we can answer these kinds of questions and it gives you a community where you can connect, learn and build relationships,” she adds.
Cavaliere agrees, saying, “The majority of entrepreneurs are ‘solopreneurs’ – they’re in their house with their dog or they’re typing on their computer. We are in our own bubble focusing on our side business or project. It’s unique to have a plug for [connect] with people who have exactly the same experience.
The LG gram 2022 line of high-end laptops has been designed to take security to the next level and support working from anywhere. Both Kaye and Cavaliere agreed that they would have liked such a simple laptop when they started their business, rather than lugging a heavy device to their business meetings.
“Nowadays we have very busy lifestyles and the LG gram fits really well with that on-the-go lifestyle,” says Kaye, who recently traveled to Ghana with his LG gram and had no to worry about charging the laptop while on the go. his flight.
His advice to budding entrepreneurs is that “owning a business is a marathon, not a sprint. You are not in competition with anyone. If anything, you are competing against yourself. So it’s all about being consistent. Go out and network in person [or] on line. Hustle Hub is one of those places where it’s a community of like-minded individuals who are ready and willing to support your entrepreneurial journey.
Cavaliere also appreciates the LG gram’s long battery life, slim and ultra-lightweight design, and security features.
“Have a little [of] more juice when you’re on the go, that’s fantastic,” he says.
He believes that “passion” is the key to an entrepreneur’s success. “Doing something you’re passionate about, whether it makes $1 million or $1, is key.”
