Art
We are SO excited to announce…’it’s official, Cindy Wilson Photography (our photographer in residence here at the Mill) will be a permanent rotating show’ (on the left side where the internal offices are) here at The Hive RI.  She is such a busy lady with shows throughout the region on a regular basis, teaching photography to individuals and classes, and traveling the world with her Profundo Journeys groups but somehow she manages to keep our walls filled with beautiful works of art.

Michelle Gradus Parenteau’s Soul Awakening Art Show is still up too.  Only a couple of weeks left to check out her beautiful work before we set up the much anticipated Mill at Shady Lea artists’ show!

We recommend self-guided tours anytime during regular coworking hours (Monday-Friday 9:00-5:00) and if you are interested in purchasing any artwork within our gallery – please email tuni@trsstrategies.com.

The Hive RI and the Mill at Lafayette have very affordable space options, from open coworking space(s), to individual offices of differing sizes, to a private conference room, or you can even reserve the larger space(s) for your own events, presentations or workshops!

Networking:

We’re going to keep promoting this event up until it happens NEXT Monday, August 8th… Total Exposure Networking (T.E.N.)

Our Lunch & Learn program will be back August 18th but in the mean time we’re hosting Richard Austin’s next T.E.N. event!  Total Exposure Networking…have you heard of it?

At most networking events you’re lucky if you get to talk to 9 or 10 people. Even then, are you delivering your message or just talking about the weather or the latest news headlines? At Total Exposure Networking (TEN), we make sure that you get to deliver your pitch to everyone in the room! Our unique TEN format consists of starting out with food, drink, and general conversation. Then, when everyone is there, we pick 5 people, and they each have one minute to give their pitch to everyone in the room. Now for the good part – we then take 10 minutes to allow anyone to talk with those who just spoke – to ask questions, learn more, and make appointments. Then we pick 5 more and do it again, and again, using the 5/10 format until everyone has had the opportunity to deliver their pitch to everyone in the room! A perfect TEN!

BIG Thank You to Tim Mahoney of Diversified Services (Landscape Materials Yard on Dry Bridge Rd.) for donating this gorgeous river stone and the granite slabs for seating (that we have yet to figure out how to lift into place when he delivers them).  We’re finally getting to our landscaping and we’re always so very grateful for our collaborative partners like Tim!  #WeLiveHere #lucky #TogetherWeAreStronger

Weekly BUZZ – Exercise at the Mill

Exercise at the Mill?
Yes, we will now be offering all kinds of exercise and wellness classes and ‘one on one’ sessions here at the mill down in Joanie’s old Lotus Fire Yoga space (she’s up on the main floor of the Rodman Bldg. now).  Check out our new Facebook page for ‘Pause…’ here.  We picked ‘Pause…’ as the name because that’s exactly what we’re hoping you’ll all do…take a 1/2 hour or more to just ‘pause’ and recharge your battery with a Kettlebell class or maybe some Pilates or Yoga.  It’s basically a ‘pop up’ for July and August and the hope is that a core group of the practitioners will take over and create a more permanent health, wellness & exercise space there. Check out the Facebook page for class times. Come on by!

Lunch & Learn:

We are taking a short break to line up a stellar new series of interesting & educational business development presentations for you all.  Richard Austin of Speaking of Success, the Hiver leading the Lunch & Learn program, is working on a Food Truck Thursday program to begin when we start up again…we are shooting for the beginning of August.  Stay tuned but in the meantime, check out his next Total Exposure Networking (T.E.N.) event here.  And, in lieu of our Lunch & Learn program, we’re hosting a great informational event here on Thursday, July 14th.  10,000 Small Businesses is a fantastic program designed by Babson College and hosted here in RI by CCRI.  Check out the invitation and share the event with any of your colleagues that you think might be interested. RSVPs may be sent to Tuni by July 11th at tuni@trsstrategies.com.

Blog:

The Mill at Lafayette blog this week really talks about what The Hive RI is all about.  It’s a repurposed article from 3 years ago that was featured in the RI Small Business Journal and that our Hiver, Amy Fields of Hub Digital Mktg. pushed out this week on her website/email.  It was written originally by me, Tuni Schartner/co-founder here at The Hive…it’s fun to read it now, to see how far we’ve come in 3 years but to also know we’re still hyper focused on building an organic sustainable community based economy here. We continue to grow and are home to so many dynamic and innovative companies and entrepreneurs!

The Mill at Lafayette is the home to dynamic and innovative companies and entrepreneurs who think outside of the box. Here professional and affordable office spaces in our historic working mill community meld with natural elements that can be so lacking in our hectic, modern lifestyles. More and more people are turning away from the traditional “9-5, Monday through Friday” grind and balancing work and personal lives. Read more here
