FreshBooks Featured in the Globe and Mail

January 25, 2007


This morning FreshBooks was featured in the Globe and Mail – Canada’s largest newspaper with a national distribution of a few million. It’s a great article with a profile of Troy Assaly, a long-time FreshBooks user who manages a web hosting and consulting business, as well as a Whistler Chalet rental site, all while making time to ski the slopes. Check out the article.

I’d like to extend my thanks to Denise Deveau who did a nice job on the article, and Michael Snider who is the technology editor at the Globe, whom I met at the Web 2.0 Summit. Next stop – the front page!

SIDE NOTE: it looks like FreshBooks will cross the 125,000 user mark today. Very exciting.  We’ll update the “ribbon” on our home page when we do.
