This October 22nd - that's a Monday for you all! We will have a wonderful man coming to us, an individual who has helped over 225,000 artists, designers, studios and professionals world wide, a 'Canadian', an instructor and most of all President, CEO and Co-Founder of FreshBooks.

On October 22nd - that's in less than a few weeks, Mike McDerment - we will call him Mike will open up to us and discuss the secrets and hurdles to small creative success. Be it you are a designer, a freelancer, an agency or just a wannabee this is for you - Billable Hours

Growing any small business, entity or the likes of you is extremely dependent on managing your cashflow and expenses. If you're just starting out, it's important to spend as little as possible and avoid debt. However, just because you keep your expenses low doesn't mean you have to sell yourself cheap.

Mike, will cover a few topics - ONE of them is long-term success. Mike knows what he is talking about, CNET says FRESHBOOKS is "more intelligent and more mature" and suggests that you "definitely try this product". Since 1999 Mike has personally consulted more than 50 companies and October 22nd he will be our delighted guest.

This is a limited seating event. Please RSVP Yes based that you are coming out and RSVP No if you cannot or have other plans. There is no maybe's for this event and meet up, sorry!

We will be hosted at Victory Cafe (one block south of Bathurst & Bloor, turn right on Lennox and walk to the corner of Markham Street) This map will be more helpful :: (,+Toronto&sll=43.759828,-79.225073&sspn=0.007036,0.014462&ie=UTF8&ll=43.66455,-79.411969&spn=0.007047,0.014462&z=16&iwloc=addr&om=1)).

Street parking available. Subway access on Bathurst & Bloor. We have the first room on the left. I had the chance to speak with the management adding a cloth to block out the noise, but still keep the spot thriving and throbbing with artists and professionals alike. If you see a cloth blocking the entrance, just come in.

FYI call up Victory Cafe[masked] if you are lost.

See you on Monday, October 22nd @ 7:30pm

OH OH ...before I forget...FRESHBOOKS is hiring. If you are looking for a gig or a full time opportunity and have a portfolio and a card to show - rsvp, come out and strut your stuff.

Now I am done ...
