Businesses Helping Self-Employed Professionals: Introducing the Reshape the World Challenge

Who is reshaping the world for you as a self-employed professional? We want to reward them.

Being self-employed is like living the hero’s journey.

You choose a path with wild ambition, seeking to solve a problem at hand. But your journey isn’t linear and self-employment can get lonely really fast. As you face roadblocks along the way, you may feel like you have to get over them alone.

Here’s the thing: You don’t have to.

Instead, team up with the allies—both individuals and organizations—who will help you navigate the challenges and achieve success. At the end of the day, these unsung helpers make your journey whole—and it’s time we recognize them.

Businesses Reshaping the World for the Self-Employed

At FreshBooks, our mission is to reshape the world to suit the needs of self-employed professionals and their teams (that means you!) We do this by enabling you to successfully run your small business without having to learn accounting.

But billing and accounting is just one piece of the pie. What about the marketing and leadership, customer support and HR tools that contribute to your business’ success?

Help FreshBooks recognize and reward those who helped you through your hero’s journey. Here’s how.
