The Weekly BUZZ: Spring Is In Bloom!

The Weekly BUZZ…

Spring is literally blooming here at the Mill at Lafayette, thank you SO much Cindy Wilson Photography for capturing it!  (*It’s so great to have such a robust community of rockstar professionals here…as I was driving in this morning I was overwhelmed by the beauty of these trees in bloom so I called Cindy and asked if she’d have time to go outside and take a picture for me.  We are so lucky to have this amazing community!)  #gratitude

Community:
Don’t forget to check out our newest community member’s Post Road Crossfit website and head over to their Facebook page to check out their schedule (sign up today), ‘Like’ and follow them!  We LOVE having them in the dye house (right next to The Hive).

Art:
Forests of Emotion Art Exhibition by Zachary Prosser (with complimentary pieces by Cindy Wilson Photography & Lori Delfosse/Eden Studio) is live at The Hive.  Stop by anytime Monday through Fridays 9-5 for a self guided tour and be sure to mark your calendars for the official Opening Celebration on Friday, April 28th from 6:00-8:00pm.

We still have 2 offices open in The Hive!
Seriously, we usually have a waiting list!!!  It doesn’t happen often but we now have 2 of our coveted 4 private offices within The Hive RI available.  Unlike elsewhere throughout our lovely Mill at Lafayette, these offices are rented month to month, no deposit and no lease required…we just ask for a 30 day notice when you’re ready to move on (or up, as many tenants end up moving into larger spaces within the mill).  These offices are great if you like privacy but also like to be within a community setting.  They are just $300 per month and will go quickly so if you (or someone you know) is interested, please let Tuni know ASAP: tuni@hubdigitalmarketing.com.

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!

The Mill at Lafayette:
Check out the rest of our amazing businesses and community members here: business directory .  Read the blogs to learn more about what’s going on in the historic (and innovative) Mill at Lafayette and if you’re interested in joining us you can see what we have for available spaces too!

The Weekly Buzz: Community Based Economy

The Weekly BUZZ…

Community Based Economy
Community is what we’re all about…whether you’re a member of the coworking space here at The Hive RI or whether you’re a tenant in our larger mill community, a person or a group in our local community or part of the RI business community…

We often refer to our on-going growth as a ‘Community Based Economy’ and I know that might sound confusing to some so here’s a basic definition: ‘Recently, the more mainstream approach of Independent Business Alliance organizing has spread across the U.S., helping independent, locally owned businesses compete effectively and countering the spread of corporate chains at the local level.’ for more of an explanation, click here. But, either way, you get the idea – basically ‘together we are stronger’. We are so proud of all the amazing people and businesses that make up our community here at The Hive RI and the Mill at Lafayette and can’t believe how we continue to grow as new members are joining weekly! We are very excited to welcome back Janelle Blakely Photopoulos & her Blakely Interior Design team. Janelle moved her new business into one of The Hive’s 4 private offices a few years ago, outgrew that space, moved to Wakefield for the last couple of years, has outgrown that space and will be moving into their permanent (hopefully anyway) space here within the Mill this week. Pictures and official announcement coming soon.
