Calling All Austin Small Business Owners! You’re Invited to the #imakealiving Event

November 1, 2018


Next up: #imakealiving is coming back to Austin. 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 NYC.

Austin is the 9th 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 again with Elaine Pofeldt the author of The Million-Dollar, One-Person Business*. Elaine, a veteran journalist who has contributed to publications such as Fortune, Money, Inc., Entrepreneur, Fast Company and Forbes, will moderate a panel of six entrepreneurs who broke $1 million in revenue in a one-person business or partnership.

*The first 100 people to get to the event, will receive a free copy of Elaine’s book The Million Dollar-One Person Business.

  • The #imakealiving Guest Speakers:

Ben and Camille Arneberg: As founders of Amazon store Willow & Everett, Ben and Camille sell decorative housewares. They also founded CubeFit, maker of the Terra Mat, a mat for standup desks for which they raised over $100,000 on Kickstarter.

Hal Elrod: On a mission to elevate the consciousness of humanity one morning at a time, Hal wrote the book, The Miracle Morning, which has been translated into 27 languages and has more than 4,000 five-star reviews.

Benedict Dohmen and Santiago Nestares Lampo: After meeting as computer science majors at Dartmouth College, Benedict and Santiago realized they had something in common: Back pain. So they joined forces under Benitago Group and launched Supportiback, a product to prevent back pain. They put it up for sale on Amazon in the UK and are projecting eight-figure revenue in 2018.

Allen Walton: As founder of SpyGuy, Allen built an online surveillance store than broke $1 million in sales the first year of business. He originally created it as a lifestyle business but has since decided to build out a team with 5 employees and turn SpyGuy into what some might call a “real business.”
