Next up: #imakealiving is coming back to San Francisco, CA. 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 neighboring stop in Los Angeles, CA.

San Francisco is the 7th 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!

For this #imakealiving event, we’ve partnered with Elaine Pofeldt the author of The Million-Dollar, One-Person Business.
