#imakealiving NYC is Sold Out [+Venue Update]

June 15, 2017


At FreshBooks it’s our mission to help small business owners thrive. It informs everything we do, from building a product that helps you get paid faster to providing customer support that promises to Execute Extraordinary Experiences Everyday (our 4E philosophy).

#imakealiving is really about creating a sense of community and camaraderie among small business owners that lasts long after we’ve left the venue!

That mission is also at the heart of our #imakealiving series of events. After all, we can’t really serve small business owners if we don’t walk a mile in their shoes. And at these events, we hear directly all about the challenges and triumphs of running a small business.

Important Update on #imakealiving New York

The next #imakealiving event is fast approaching. We’ve been overwhelmed by the response to this event series… indeed the New York event sold out in a proverbial New York minute!

We believe so firmly in the value of this event that we really want to accommodate as many people as possible. So… GOOD NEWS! we’ve changed venue to allow more people to attend.

Here are all the important (updated) details:

  • When: Wednesday 21st June: 8am-11:30am
  • Where: Caroline Comedy Bar, 1626 Broadway, New York, NY 10019
  • Details: Check out the full speaker line-up

There are just a few extra tickets, so please RSVP right away to secure yours!

Reactions & Results – the Magic of #imakealiving

Every #imakealiving event is slightly different – we don’t project a grand agenda on the event. These gatherings are really about having a dialogue with small business owners, so we let our panelists and your questions and comments drive the conversation. It takes us in many interesting directions!

Here’s just a sample from our L.A. event:

Some of the stories we hear are about success in adversity. Others are about the magical serendipity of being in the right place at the right time. While every journey is different, we see common themes and questions emerge. And everybody leaves feeling supported and inspired.

But even more real are the connections participants make with each other. Just check out this comment:

While listening to and participating in these conversations helps FreshBooks build better products for you, it’s really about creating a sense of community and camaraderie among small business owners that lasts long after we’ve left the venue!

But we get it: We’re probably not going to hit every town and city. And we don’t want to create a sense of FOMO (fear of missing out) just because you can’t join us.

Well, guess what? It’s the digital age! So… we have a Twitter handle @freshbookslive you can follow and even a Slack channel for people who want to continue the conversation after the event.

Connect with us, we’d love to hear from you!
