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.

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!


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!
