On the radio, at the pub and going to SEED

October 22, 2007


Just a quick set of news flashes here.

Last week I had the good fortune to be interviewed on Business at Night by Greg Hebert of CFRA in Ottawa. I talked about a variety of things including who FreshBooks is for, why to use FreshBooks versus the competition and why I wanted (and built) the first version (“I wanted something that would tell me who owed me what and helped me collect that money”). You can download that interview or listen to it here:

Tonight I’m going to be speaking at the Victory Cafe to the Design Guild of Toronto — a group of entrepreneurs and creative professionals who meets monthly. If you want to come out and say hello, I’m going to be talking about fee structures, billing your clients and the importance of value-based pricing.

Finally, a reminder that we want to pay for your ticket to the SEED conference in Chicago. The offer ends this Wednesday so if you are interested, get on it.
