Calling All PDX Small Business Owners! You’re Invited to the #imakealiving Event

June 8, 2018


Next up: #imakealiving is coming back 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 month, the #imakealiving 2018 team made a stop in NYC.

Portland, Oregon is the 4th city in our #imakealiving tour this year. And we’re doing things a little different this time around. Rather than hosting you in the morning, #imakealiving PDX will be held in the evening—over some drinks and great conversation. And Portland, we’re coming with a theme: Be Your Own Boss – How to Hustle and How to Own It.

We’re excited to see how the conversation evolves and discover 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!

Event: #imakealiving powered by FreshBooks

Where: The Evergreen – 618 SE Alder Street, Portland, OR
Details: The #imakealiving events bring together an eclectic group of small business owners for a lively, candid and often hilarious conversation.

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.
