Next up: #imakealiving is coming back to Austin, Texas. We’d love to meet you there!

How people make a living today is very different from 10 years ago. And that’s the motivation behind the #imakealiving events sponsored by FreshBooks. Last month, the #imakealiving 2018 team made a stop in Portland, Oregon.

Austin is the 5th city on our #imakealiving tour this year. Get ready to spend your evening with us over some drinks and great conversation. No matter what, we know it will be another inspiring event!

Event: #imakealiving powered by FreshBooks

Where: The Evergreen – 618 SE Alder Street, Portland, OR
Details: The #imakealiving events bring together an eclectic group of small business owners for a lively, candid and often hilarious conversation.

Plus, you’ll get lots of actionable insights to take you and your business to the next level. And for the first time, #imakealiving will take place in the evening. A networking social will follow the main event with drinks and food for everyone attending!
