Calling All Chicago Small Business Owners! You’re Invited to the #IMakeaLiving Event

November 10, 2017


Next up: #IMakeaLiving is coming to Chicago, IL. 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. In October, we hosted our 6th #IMakeaLiving event in Boston.

Chicago is the 7th and final city in our inaugural #IMakeaLiving tour this year. We’re excited to see how the conversation evolves in the Windy City; the similarities and differences between small business owners in different parts of the continent. No matter what, we know it will be another inspiring event!
