Weekly BUZZ – Avoiding the Traps

This Thursday’s Lunch & Learn:
Join us this Thursday, noon-1:00, to learn more about Social Media – Securing Your Voice and Avoiding the Traps!

The use of social media for business is recognized as a critical tool in any organizations’ marketing plan. There are many different platforms that can be used. Choosing the right ones for your business and knowing how to use them are all part of the puzzle that must be solved. Facebook and twitter are two of the biggest and most popular, but there are other avenues that can be used to get your message out to your audience and to get them to respond in the way you want (buy something, attend an event, state a position, etc.).
This presentation will touch on these issues and others affecting the proper and effective use of social media.  Learn more and RSVP here!

5 Reasons Why You Should Work From a Historic Mill

Working out of a historic mill is a little different than the “typical” 9-5 grind, but those of us who work here absolutely wouldn’t have it any other way! Here are 5 of the top reasons why you should consider moving your company or small business to a historic mill site, like the Lafayette Mill!

1.) It Sure Beats the Cubicle: Since they’re built upon so much rich history, mills have a much different feel than a florescent-lit, white-walled cubicle. The Lafayette Mill has countless spaces with exposed brick, original woodwork and architectural features, and natural lighting. At the Lafayette Mill, the relaxing sounds of the waterfall and chickens next door can be heard in the background. There’s also miles of walking/running trails in a town owned park available to mill tenants!

At the Lafayette Mill, there is also a ton of programming available to tenants! Mill tenants love The Hive RI’s Lunch & Learn program, which features a different mini-presentation each week, Pause at the Mill wellness studio with all kinds of classes from yoga to core strengthening, as well as the Mill’s new Food Truck Thursdays, which brings in local food trucks around lunchtime each Thursday.

2.) It’s Super Cost-Effective: Rent for a professional space at a mill is very affordable! At least it is at the Lafayette Mill. For most of the available spaces at the Mill at Lafayette, HVAC, electricity, and wifi are included with rent!

The Lafayette Mill currently has a new tenant special: sign and make your deposit by September 1st, 2016 and get a month’s rent FREE! Learn more here.

3.) The Countless Benefits of Shared Service Offerings: Many office tenants at a mill feel a strong sense of community with their fellow tenants, which is another reason why mill workplaces are so unique. In a mill office community, you’re likely to find a variety of business professionals, from accountants who appreciate the historic mill aesthetic, to eccentric artists who find inspiration in the mill’s natural lighting and exposed brick. This is advantageous to all involved – if you ever need a new website built, there’s probably a web developer right down the hall from you, or if you ever need advice on a project, your peers in the office next door are usually happy to help!

4.) It’s All About Community: As mentioned above, office tenants at a mill are usually bound by a strong sense of community, which in itself has many advantages for employee retention and morale. Building a community, rather than just a workplace, is something that more and more companies are striving to do, as many of the top companies are showing that this is an excellent way to increase overall company performance.

The Lafayette Mill has a thriving community! Office tenants rave about the unique comradery and community that has been bred here.

5.) You’re a Part of History: And finally, if you are an office tenant at a historic mill, you’re ultimately a part of something much larger than yourself. Not only are you working in a unique space with an amazing community behind you, but you are helping to preserve an important part of history. Putting historic mills to good use and preserving them carefully ensures that they will be admired and put to good use for many years to come.

Interested in joining a historic mill community? Be sure to contact us at the Mill at Lafayette before our new tenant special ends!

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!

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!

Social Media:

Don’t forget to ‘like’ us on Facebook – we share information there on a daily basis!

Art:

Michelle Gradus Parenteau’s Soul Awakening Art Show is still up in The Hive’s space and if you missed the open house…have no fear!  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

Looking for a professional space to settle in and get some serious work done?  The Hive RI and the Mill at Lafayette have very affordable 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!
