The Weekly Buzz: Busy February!

The Weekly BUZZ… 

A few days late!  Sorry everyone, it was a busy January and it is proving to be an equally busy February for the Queen Bee! 

What’s Going On…
Have any of you heard of ‘Best for RI’?  The Social Enterprise Greenhouse launched this program last Spring.  If you’re wanting to ‘do well’ and ‘do good’ in your business you should go to the website and take the challenge.  There are great tips and tools there to help you become a more socially conscious business and if you want to dive a little deeper they have that option too…and there are even prizes involved! Click here to take the challenge and learn more.

We are getting excited about our next AMP-RI (Advertising, Marketing & PR) event at Sonoma Bistro & Wine Bar on Tuesday the 13th!  Adam Roth of URI will be talking about how ‘Digital Natives are not always digitally fluent!’  To register or learn more, click here.

Small Business owners that want to GROW their businesses, there’s a B.Y.O.B. (Bring Your Own Business) Workshop coming to The Hive and space is limited.  Learn more about this accelerated growth strategy bootcamp style group workshop here.

Art Gallery at The Hive RI
The current Art Show at The Hive RI… Details here.  Plus…I’ve added ‘mini art shows’ in my TS Consulting/TRS Strategies office – so we now have 3 shows within The Hive RI running simultaneously!  How exciting is that?!  We always feature the revolving work of Cindy Wilson Photography in the large space to the left (sort of the ‘center’ space here) and I’ve recently decided to run a revolving mini show in my office.  I currently have the work of Susan Fox, as well as the remainder of Janelle Feigley/Elle Art Design‘s #PeopleProject pieces from her October Breast Cancer fundraiser.  These pieces are available for $128 each and ALL the proceeds go directly to Breast Cancer research & awareness.

The Weekly BUZZ: Work Life Balance

The Weekly BUZZ… #WorkLifeBalance

How important is balance to you?
Here at The Hive RI & the Mill at Lafayette we think exposure to natural light, easy access to walking, running & biking trails and a community environment are all important components to creating a healthy work/life balance.  Whether someone just takes advantage of a work space or office with tons of natural lightor likes to utilize our wooded trails for exercise or meetings or maybe likes to take their work outside next to the waterfall…we believe it’s super important to have these options and love being able to continue to offer all of this to our growing community!

We have space at the Mill:
If you’re looking to relocate your business and are interested in being a part of a thriving community…check out our available spaces here!  We have a couple of small offices upstairs in the Rodman bldg. available – one is $340 per month, the other is $450 – they both require a minimum of a one year lease and a deposit.  We also have two spaces that are around 1k square feet and will be built out to suit new tenants.  One of those spaces is wide open with a white brick wall on the street facing side with tons of light from those sexy ginormous windows and the other also has multiple windows and can be designed & built out.

Coworking in The Hive RI:
Have you been thinking about ‘coworking’?  We only charge $100 per month and you’re welcome to come ‘test drive at The Hive’ for zero, zip, zilch for the first couple of days!  Come on by, make yourself at home and see if this might be a good fit for you!
