Welcome to 411’s Entrepreneurs Club


Become a 411 customer to get all the benefits of the Entrepreneurs Club. See how we can help your business grow with our Business solutions.

Every business faces struggles from time to time. Some happen in the early stages of a business, when trying to sort out finances and funding. Others come during the growth phase, perhaps when determining a marketing strategy to attract new customers. They may even arise when the business is thriving, but the owner is on the verge of a burnout. These struggles are often amplified for entrepreneurs because they simply don’t have as many resources as larger companies to work through them.

We’re here to help you succeed in all areas of your business. Whether you need help with accounting, financing, marketing or operations, we’ll make sure we find you the best solution for your business. That’s why we’ve partnered with Goodlife, Avis, Square, Law Scout, FreshBooks, Grasshopper, Thinking Capital, Vistaprint, Arnold Street Media, Regus and more to bring you the Entrepreneurs Club, your hookup to exclusive business benefits.

We get that entrepreneurs are super busy, so as a Club member, you’ll get a dedicated Business Advisor that will sweat the details, so you can get back to running your business. Why? Simply because we value our customers, and we want to give you something more for your business. 411 clients who spend over $150/month will automatically become members and will get access to Entrepreneurs Club benefits instantly.

Benefits for Entrepreneurs Club Members

  • You get exclusive offers on business products and services
  • There’s no extra work—just sit back, relax, and enjoy the perks
  • It’s comprehensive—there’s something for every type of business
  • It’s flexible—take advantage of deals from as many or as few of our partners as you’d like


Here’s a list of our partners and an idea of the offers you’ll get.


As the world continues to progress into a cashless one, getting paid as a freelancer, contractor or a professional service provider is becoming tougher. Invoices can take months to get paid and dealing with cheques can always be shaky. Everything would be easier if you can get paid upfront and fast. Heck, bonus if you can do it from your smart device. Well, it’s all possible with Square – you can get paid directly to your smartphone or tablet connected to your bank accounts with the square reader.

With our partnership with Square, Entrepreneurs Club members get $1500 of free transactions. You’ll receive a free Square reader, along with the Point of Sale app that connects to your smart device. Once you’ve set your free account up you can start getting paid via credit card immediately and on the go.


The toughest thing to do when running your own business is making time for yourself. It’s important to take even one hour per day to step away and take care of your health. This will significantly improve your life and increase longevity. Our partnership with Goodlife gives you just that. Being in the Entrepreneurs Club means an exclusive corporate membership with Goodlife.

With a Goodlife corporate discount, you’ll save 44% off regular rates of the all-access membership, giving you access to over 280 locations across Canada and the programs they offer. Some locations are open 24 hours, so you can go around your busy schedule. You can extend the discount to loved ones as well.

Golf Concierge

Golfing is still one of the most popular past times, for both business and leisure. The prices can be steep, however, especially for entrepreneurs operating on a tight budget. With 411’s personal Golf Concierge, you’ll get access to some of the best golf courses in the country all at exclusive rates.

Avis & Budget

Ever had an important client meeting, or an out-of-town sales opportunity but no car? It’s a tough predicament, but there is always an option. Showing up by hopping off the bus may not be the best look, so renting a car is your next best bet. Sometimes that means spending a little extra cash you did not intend to.

With our Avis & Budget partnership, you can save anywhere from 5-25% on car and truck rentals, anywhere in the world. If you really want to up your game, you’ll have access to the Avis Signature Series and save on signature rentals.  You’ll never miss an important meeting or opportunity again.


With so much of our lives online now, we sometimes neglect print when it comes to marketing—but we definitely shouldn’t. Professional looking marketing materials communicate your brand message and give your customers something to hold on to. Tangible items like business cards or branded pens shouldn’t be overlooked.

Vistaprint creates and prints marketing material like business cards, letterheads, pens, mugs, calendars, and more—you name it, they have it. Entrepreneurs Club members get a 50% discount on business cards and 25-40% off on all the rest.


Using a virtual phone system let’s you work from anywhere, makes your business sound more professional to your customers, and helps you save costs. Plus, having a local number on your site will help improve your local search engine ranking.

Grasshopper is a virtual phone system that lets you turn your smartphone into a business line, so you can run your business on the go. You can keep your existing number or get a new local or toll-free one. You’ll get a $75 credit to your Grasshopper account through the Entrepreneurs Club.


One of the realities of running a business is that you need to keep track of all your expenses. You can hire a bookkeeper to handle it or you can make use of a simple, do-it-yourself solution. Cloud accounting is ideal for entrepreneurs because it will help you stay organized and avoid the scramble when it comes to tax time.

FreshBooks is an easy-to-use cloud accounting service that allows business owners to invoice, track time, and capture expenses both quickly and securely. Club members get 10% off on monthly plans or 20% off annual plans.
