Is Coworking for you?
Do you work at home?  Do you work out of cafes like Starbucks or Panera Bread?  Come by The Hive RI anytime from 9-5, Monday through Friday, & try out working ‘alone together’ in a space that isn’t a coffee shop or a restaurant but still has that same kind of feel.  We have couches, chairs, tables and desks, internet connection.  We won’t charge you for the first time or two.  It’s not for everyone but it’s perfect for some and it’s only $100 per month but only for a couple more weeks.  As of 1/1/19 our rates are finally going up to $135 per month for coworking and $15 per hour for the conference room!  If you’d like to opt in at our initial rates you better email soon: Tuni, a.k.a. ‘The Queen Bee’, if you want to sign up…
