14 MAY 2020
We recognise that amongst the many suffering right now are the silent entrepreneurs, those who do the cash jobs; the side hustlers, babysitters, dog walkers, cleaners etc who are all now pivoting to truly innovative ways of doing business and trying ridiculously hard to keep their business', hobbies and livelihoods afloat.
It's hard work, but like the rest of the Australian community, we have your back. We want to help promote your projects and the amazing work you are doing and give you a new chance to share your stories.
We also want to help you get new customers, and to help them then transact with your business’ using our simple contactless payment solution that requires no fiddly tech or set up fees.
So from this week we will be giving a shout out to our hustlers across our website & socials to share their stories with the world. If you are, or know another hustler, please reach out to us so we can add you to our list!

Ben Smith Coaching - Personal Training ( sole trader)
Is your gym shut? Many have kept training at home. I miss the personal interactions with my clients but have enjoyed the new challenge of online programs and using my coaching instagram account to help them stay healthy. It is so important to keep our bodies moving during this time of isolation!

Saurabh & Gifty/ Shopsmart
ShopSmart is a new online business started by husband-wife duo Saurabh Seth & Gifty Arora and their main aim is to tap into market needs of quality products at the best price available. As we are an online business (hosted on various marketplaces like Facebook market) we rely heavily on cashless payments solutions which also is the preferred way of this millennial generation. This is a tough time for a lot of businesses, so we have to make sure more and more people know us. To achieve the same we are engaging with more people, creating new posts, offering exciting deals to increase our customer base.
Miss Tara is a ballet dancing, small child wrangling, coffee-drinking country girl who has made a life and career in Sydney. Covid meant pivoting her ballet studio to an online classroom, which was a challenge but being introduced to Beem It early on in the piece meant chasing payments was one of the easier parts.
Emily is a caterer and decorator. Creating edible art is her passion, and she love’s to make beautiful high teas, favours, decorated cakes, etc. During these times, I need to be more readily available and cater to a wider range. Using a cashless payment, such as Beem It, has helped me and my clients to easily and safely make payments.
Sleety : Best Fit Forward Personal Training (sole trader)
Although times are restricted there's never been a better time for exercise, most clients are training virtually and I have started family classes to encourage fun whilst being active together. Beem It allows new clients to pay instantly, safely and on the fly.
If you know anyone like the above, ask them if they have a Beem It account. You could send them a bit of extra love and attention with an instant cash payment. Add a sticker as well if you want, to show a bit extra appreciation.
If you have any ideas or suggestions on how we can improve connecting with each other, whether it’s an app innovation or something we could do at work we would love to hear from you. We're working harder than ever to ensure you continue to have the best Beem It experience possible.
