Calling All Portland, Oregon Small Business Owners! You’re Invited to the #imakealiving Event

July 25, 2017


Next up: #imakealiving is coming to Portland, Oregon. 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 week, we hosted our third #imakealiving event in our hometown Toronto.

Portland is the fourth city on our eight city #imakealiving tour. We’re excited to see how the conversation evolves in Oregon; 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!
