Are You Ready to Take It to the Next Level?

Take Your Business to the Next Level

Running a small business is rewarding. But let’s be honest: It can also be challenging. Why not lean on others for support? The #IMakeaLiving event is here to help!

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, 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.

It’s free (yes, FREE) to attend and we’d love to see you there. (And, no, this isn’t one of those events that’s actually a sales pitch).

Event: #IMakeALiving powered by FreshBooks

When: Wednesday, February 21st, 9am–12pm

Where: Hollywood Improv Comedy Club, 8162 Melrose Avenue 90046

Cost: Free
