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 Austin, TX.
LA is the 6th 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!
Event: #imakealiving powered by FreshBooks
When: Wednesday, August 22nd, 6:30 PM – 10:00 PM PT
Where: The Rose Room – 6 Rose Ave, Venice, CA 90291, USA
Details: The #imakealiving events bring together an eclectic group of small business owners for a lively, candid and often hilarious conversation. Part small business boot camp, part group therapy with a special keynote at the end, you’ll leave feeling inspired and motivated. Plus, you’ll get lots of actionable insights to take you and your business to the next level. And for the first time, #imakealiving will take place in the evening. A networking social will follow the main event with drinks and food for everyone attending!
Cost: The #imakealiving event is free to attend! After all, seeing you thrive is all the payment we need.
