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 San Francisco, CA.
New York City is the 8th 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 seven NYC-based entrepreneurs who broke $1 million in revenue in a one-person business or partnership.

Stacy Berman: A pioneer in the fitness industry, Stacy created the first all year outdoor boot camp in NYC back in 1999. Called a “NYC fitness icon” by Forbes Magazine, Stacy trail-blazed the way for the global boutique fitness craze we see today. Soon after she created the first boot camp in NYC, Stacy realized food was the foundation for a sound mind in a sound body. She threw herself into nutrition by becoming a certified nutrition specialist and started The System to achieve a higher, more meaningful level of health and fitness.
Rachel Charlupski: The babysitting- savvy visionary at the helm of The Babysitting Company, Rachel operates her network of more than 1,200 sitters to provide world-renowned services to loyal clients and families. Her extensive team of highly professional, personally screened, certified and exceptional babysitters, nannies and caregivers are recognized for unparalleled professionalism, friendliness, flexibility, certifications and loving creativity.
Steve Ferreira: As CEO of Ocean Audit, Steve’s high-revenue, one-man business, founded in 2004, helps large retailers and other clients audit ocean freight invoices for costly mistakes.
Kelly Lester: A successful entrepreneur with no formal business training, Kelly founded her second company, EasyLunchboxes in 2009. The idea was born from her frustration with packing lunches for her three school-age daughters. With no money for advertising, Kelly turned to word-of-mouth marketing via social media. Her tagline, Pack Lunches Fast, struck a chord with her audience. She quickly grew her sales to over $1M per year via positive blog reviews and lots of “likes”.
Angie and Colin Raja: By tapping into their passion for Crossfit and recreational boxing, Angie and Colin started RIMSports two years ago. Their Amazon store sells sporting goods and fitness accessories out of Kew Gardens, Queens. Noticing that much of the available gear was in drab colors, they introduced their best-selling fitness gloves in several bright colors they thought would appeal to women.
Iris Scott: An oil finger painter, Iris’ vibrant creations have been featured in Forbes, Barron’s, Business Insider, USA Today, NowThis, CBS New York and American Art Collector Magazine. Several galleries carry Iris’ originals and her collectors have included Microsoft, Coca-Cola, Children’s Hospital and Swedish Medical Centers.
