Entrepreneur's Circle: Own Your Story with Olivia Christian

Presenting Pic (2).jpg

Join us for our casual and conversational Entrepreneur's Circle at The Hivery! This is another way to make sure you're not going at the business of building a business on your own, but rather with the trusted circle of The Hivery community. 

In this hands-on workshop, Olivia Christian joins us to teach her methodology of crafting a personal brand story. Together, she'll coach attendees to craft a personal brand story that incorporates both the logical—the head, and the emotional—the heart.

This personal brand story, which can be conveyed in 2.5 minutes or less, covers both--the individual motivations and connection one has to the work as well as the data and brand specifics. Whether preparing to pitch to potential investors, prospective board members, hopeful interns or new hires, you'll walk away with the skills to effectively convey the why, how and what of your personal brand story to any given audience.

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!

Not a Hivery member yet? Learn more about membership and sign up here.

About EMILY BOSCHETTO

9.29.17_Mathildas Magnolias.jpg

After having a baby in June 2016, Emily Boschetto decided to leave the corporate world of marketing (ex Unilever and IBM) and take the bold move (along with her husband, Matt) of setting up and creating their own business. She'd grown up in Yorkshire, England and as a country girl always had a passion for flowers, nature and everything thats beautiful in this fabulous world of ours. Her husband, a born and bred San Franciscan, his family had started off as rose growers in the Bay Area when they immigrated from Genoa nearly 100 years ago. And up until this day still operate in the industry. Together they had the ultimate ambition of making beautiful fresh flowers affordable and sharing the best of what is locally grown and sourced right here in California. In this they created a Bloombox business. They source blooms from local Bay Area farmers, they box up and deliver to your front door. They're different to any other flower business as they don't arrange the blooms you do. It helps them to keep the costs down (keeping extraordinary flowers affordable) and it's not only quick and easy to do it enables you to experiment and learn a few tips and tricks in the process.

Hivery Circle: Belong with Radha Agrawal

September’s Hivery Circle celebrates the power of belonging and reconnecting. 

DNJ_RadhaAgrawal_00482_ScreenRes_SQUARE CROP.jpg

We're thrilled to welcome entrepreneur and author, Radha Agrawal (co-Founder of the amazing Daybreaker), to The Hivery stage to discuss her soon to be released book, BELONG: Find Your People, Create Community, and Live a More Connected Life.

Radha is the co-Founder, CEO and Chief Community Architect of Daybreaker, the early morning dance and wellness move-ment that currently holds events in 25 cities and over a dozen college campuses around the world with a community of almost half a million people. She is also a successful entrepreneur (Co-Founder THINX, LiveItUp), author, speaker, DJ, inventor, and investor.

Radha will take The Hivery stage in conversation with Grace Kraaijvanger, Founder of The Hivery, to share more about her new book and her shared belief in the importance of finding community. BELONG: Find Your People, Create Community, and Live a More Connected Life was born out of what Agrawal observed as her Daybreaker project grew: the need among all of us to find a place of acceptance, repair our social fabric, and reconnect.  A modern how-to manual for figuring out where and with whom we fit, complete with beautiful, playful illustrations, it encourages readers to first go in – a process that includes discovering personal intention – and then go out so they can find their community and their people.

Join us to hear more about the book’s expertly designed exercises meant to guide readers in their journey to belonging, from how to determine core values, interests, and abilities to 10 foolproof ways to nurture community to taming the mean girls of your mind (also known as your inner thoughts of comparison, perfectionism and judgment).  

Together, we will learn more about why Radha and Daybreaker is a global community force and why thousands of people flock to these morning parties. Through innovative gatherings like Daybreaker to marches to neighborhood affiliations, this need for community for people of all ages is becoming increasingly apparent – as has the powerful effect it has on both the individual and society. This is why this book is so important in this moment and why we are honored to welcome Radha Agrawal to The Hivery Stage.

 This Tuesday evening happy hour is the perfect way to celebrate #womendoingcoolstuff. Guests will enjoy local wine and lite bites. 

Belong - 3D low res NEW.png

Limited signed copies of  BELONG: Find Your People, Create Community, and Live a More Connected Life will be available for purchase by our partner, Book Passage.

Don’t hesitate to come alone and mingle with your Hivery community or feel free to bring a friend.

ALL ARE WELCOME at this beautiful celebration of belonging and reconnecting!

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. All are welcome!

Interested in learning more before signing up?

Join The Hivery's What's Next course coaches Laura Riordan, Ph.D. and Linda Lesem, M.S. for a free information session on Friday, September 7 from 10:00-11:00am to learn more about this session. Get all of your questions answered in a jam packed hour! 


//PROGRAM TAKEAWAYS

GET UNSTUCK

First, you will need to understand why you are stuck. We will explain the myriad of environmental blocks, cultural themes and brain biases that keep you from moving forward. You will find out how to change your mindset, let go of expectations and clear away roadblocks.

OWN YOUR STRENGTHS + VALUES 

We begin with introductions, intentions and a variety of self-assessment explorations including the Myers Briggs (a Personality Typology Inventory).  Additionally, we will explore Interests through the Holland Code, Character Strengths, Skills, Values and a variety of creative exercises that will help you to brainstorm possibilities that are complementary to your true nature.

DESIGN A PLAN FOR CHANGE

We work together to intentionally create space for What’s Next by identifying what works and what no longer serves you.  You will life-design both your physical environment and relationships, to support your new chapter. This is a key component to organizing your life to get “unstuck” and make actual change.  We will guide you towards identifying the intersection of your core values, interests, strengths and skills.  This is the intersection where “good fit” possibilities reside.   

CREATE AN ACTION PLAN

We create actions and accountability around "trying things on."  Your Hivery What’s Next group will be there to help you investigate, network and find out if new action paths are a match with who you are and what you want to do. Finally, we give you practical tools and a variety of Positive Psychology techniques to create your own custom recipe for change.

What’s Next Facilitators: Linda Lesem, M.S., and Laura Riordan, Ph.D. 

Linda Lesem, M.S. is a trained therapist, career counselor and life coach, specializing in Positive Psychology, (the Science of Happiness). She works individually with clients in her own practice, and also facilitates groups for clients, who are yearning to create positive change in their lives! Linda created Moms In Transition, a workshop for Moms who are ready to take their next step, and are asking themselves…"What is next for me?"  This is a great way for a small group of women to be together, as they "get back in touch with who they are", and "what they want" and then start the process of creating a plan for themselves, whether that be re-entering the paid working world, going back to school or volunteering in personally meaningful ways. Learn more about Linda here
 

Laura Riordan, Ph.D. is a holistic life coach who helps her clients find balance and meaningful success. With a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology and 20 years in the mind and body wellness industry, she brings wisdom, clarity and swiftness to her coaching practice. Laura began her career as the head of client services for retreat style resorts and spas, helping people center and refocus themselves while escaping the daily challenges of modern life. While overseeing spa programs and working as a massage therapist, she discovered that retreats were great at providing short-term relief, but they could not offer the kind of long-standing change that so many people needed.

Laura’s coaching practice evolved from the understanding that people need a guide to help identify their meaningful work, ground aha moments and give accountability and infrastructure to make lasting changes. Laura leverages her Ph.D. to help her clients find bigger versions of themselves and her strategic and practical skills to create a road map to get there. Learn more about Laura here.


WHAT’S NEXT PARTICIPANT TESTIMONIALS:

"I want to thank you both again for the last four wonderful weeks of "What's Next?"  The class exceeded all my expectations and was truly insightful.  I appreciate your thoughtful approach and stimulating content.  It is such a pleasure to have discovered The Hivery and to have spent time with inspiring, courageous women in class this past month...I did not want the class to end!"
-Sheryl Ott
"I don't have words to describe how valuable I found today's session to be, and how excited I am for the 3 remaining sessions we have.  Over the 25 years I've been in the working world, I have worked with a number of career coaches, attended multiple workshops, and purchased countless career books (I just dusted off "Do What You Are" and "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" from my bookshelf).  Today's session produced more "aha" moments for me than any I can remember from years past, and we are just at the beginning."
-Anonymous
"I met a friend for lunch who asked me about the workshop and I was happy to tell her the two top take-aways for me were: (1) understanding all the aspects of my life and how they fit together (2) how to structure my schedule in a way that compartmentalizes all the pieces.  SO MUCH BETTER."
-Monique Johnson
"While I know I have the knowledge, the courage and the intelligence it is all still quite a scary process... I am putting my best foot forward and filing my life with lots of positive support and encouragement.  I am so thankful to have found the combination of the two of you to help me along this path!"
-Karen Polite Sullivan

"Participating in What's Next has provided me with an important opportunity to re-visit self inventory work I completed previously, and then to use that work to take significant, concrete steps towards breathing life into my teen coaching practice. I loved learning from Laura and Linda, as well as from the other participants. Through the five weeks of the workshop, I received a number of helpful suggestions which will help tremendously as I move forward. And finally, participating in What's Next gave me space to formulate important questions and explore solutions."

-Jennifer Labovich

"This class was lead by very professional, excellent life coaches! The group of women were supportive, loving and kind, so much so, that it allowed all of us to open our hearts and feel safe asking for help and supporting each other. I loved all the honesty and beautiful stories we shared and the friendships made...hopefully for a long time!"

-Suzanne Roth-Paul

"I was stuck thinking that earning money for my work was going to be difficult after years of volunteer work. This workshop has been extremely helpful in learning more about myself, my interests and possible directions I can take. Now I am networking and feel optimistic and re-charged. Thank you Laura and Linda!"

-Alessandra Gallo

The Product of You Information Session

Everyone has a story. And each of us has reason to share it. Whether you’re a business owner, a freelancer, you’re thinking about going back to work, or you have a presence online (that’s everyone, really), personal branding is the way in which you tell your story. It creates an emotional connection to who you are, what your past experience has taught you, and where you would like to go. 

As we explore what's next for us, whether that's starting a new business, considering going back to work, or starting a new independent consultancy, it's imperative that we are thoughtful about our personal brand presence, both online and offline.

Highlights from our 2nd Annual Entrepreneur Lab

What Past Attendees Are Saying
"The Entrepreneur Lab is such a special gathering. Typically conferences or networking always make me a bit uncomfortable because they seem to be targeted toward a certain business person that is a little more 'corporate' than I feel. I love that the Entrepreneur Lab is a place for powerful women to bring their whole selves — their dynamic business ideas, but also their passions, creativity, emotions — and all of those components are honored and engaged at this event. It's a day of laughter, powerful connections, maybe some tears, and of course great business support." -Jenni Heffernan Brown, Prim’d Marketing

"If you have an idea … but have no idea how to move it ahead, or are between the last thing … and the next thing, or just want to be in a place that feeds the mind ... AND the soul, then you really owe it to yourself to participate in The Hivery’s upcoming Entrepreneur + Inspiration Lab. I have spoken at many conferences and workshops over the years, and after speaking at last year’s session I will tell you that I got much, much more than I gave. The event was so well organized, so well curated and so well ... welcoming, I came away thinking and feeling that I could and should take on a few new things myself!” -Eileen Gittins

“The Entrepreneur Lab was an inspirational day that energized me, gave me new ideas for my business, and connected me with inspiring women! Thank you for making it possible for me to attend.” -Susan Kleinman

"The event was sublime. The tone for the day was set by Grace...the ease of her voice, the quiet conviction and promise of what was to come if we’d all just abandon our fears into the space, and simply be. It—for me—was a deep praxis on more levels than I can name. Engaging. Realizing. Applying and Embodying. I, for one, continue to allow the substance within me that was so affected in our gathering to sift, shift and settle. I was offered a certain kind of permission, one that inspired me to say, “Hells-to-the-yeah,” when it was all said and done. And also, to step out of my isolation and say ‘Hi!” The result, in my life, has been nothing short of miraculous…" -Regina Louise

“The Entrepreneur Lab was a great opportunity for me to get inspiration, new ideas and make connections to help me spearhead my event planning business. The speakers were engaging and practical with the ideas they had to share. Most notably was Lindsay Walsh who made everything extremely relatable. It was great to have choices of workshops and activities throughout the day and opportunities to network with other participants. The event was extremely well-organized, thoughtful and a wonderful way to build connections and gain resources to start or build your venture.” -Becca Bloom

“Having an opportunity to be in a room full of brilliant, honest, and accomplished women willing to share their gifts was an incredible experience. The deep love and energy was palpable. Expect to be blown away.” -Nic Winzey

“From the very beginning, I was beautifully welcomed. Grace told me that I would be well held by The Hivery community. I was invited to come to the event a speaker, but also, I got to come as an entrepreneur and a woman -- a raw woman. There are a lot of women’s leadership spaces, but The Hivery is unique. The Hivery is a space where it’s okay to be professional, if that’s you, and it’s okay to be raw and gritty, if that’s you. It’s about embracing raw entrepreneurship, and the real talk of the nitty gritty and the underbelly of what it really takes to do this. At this conference, you will be invited to share your real story in a community that is going to make you feel super loved.” -Nikki Silvestri

About Amy Perl 

Amy Perl is a Norther California native who, from an early age, has had a keen interest in objects that hold a sense of history. This fascination with history later extended to people, and in particular the family histories of her own family and others’. As her eye for photography developed as an early teen, Amy was naturally drawn to documenting the forgotten histories imbued within junkyards, abandoned houses, and lost and found objects.

In the late 90s, Amy, her husband, and occasionally a few inspired friends, began a series of road trips from the Bay Area to locations throughout Northern California, Route 66, and the West. Finding the same sense of forgotten history and quiet abandonment in the landscapes of the Southwest, Amy expanded her travels to sites in and around Arizona and New Mexico. Today, Amy continues to expand her search, photographing people, objects and landscapes not only throughout California and the West, but throughout the Gulf Coast, and when she gets the opportunity, in Mexico and Europe.

Amy’s photographs capture the spirit of the place— the sense of what’s been there before, and the aspirations for what may have been. We see our selves and our stories in these photographs, whether they are truly ours or not. After spending some time with Amy’s photographs, they become part of our own personal stories, and evoke a found serenity that we all seek.

Amy Perl earned her BFA from the University of Colorado, Boulder and lives with her family in Mill Valley, CA.

Join us for an opportunity to explore your creativity in community! The Creativity Circle, held the first Thursday of every month, features guest creatives, artists, designers, and makers who will inspire you to explore your inner artist within the walls of The Hivery's Creative Studio.

Most of us do lots of writing: emails, copy for clients, briefs, or creative output. Join us for this month's Creativity Circle with writer, designer, and Type A Creative, Jenni Heffernan Brown.

In this workshop we'll start with some easy-to-respond to writing prompts, allowing you to actually do some writing, get this, JUST FOR FUN.  And since a blank page can be overwhelming or intimidating, we'll merge collage and colors with your writing to create a vibrant and playful frame from your creative expression. 

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. All are welcome!

Inspiration Circle: Leading Through Connection with Anna Kawar

rawpixel-651373-unsplash.jpg

The Inspiration Circle is a facilitated group session all about personal discovery and exploration. Join us to connect with fellow members and come together in a welcoming group setting! This monthly event is a great opportunity to share motivation, ideas, coaching, and mentorship.

This month, we are excited to host: Leading Through Connection with Anna Kawar. Leading Through Connection (LTC) is an organization that is working to redefine what compassion looks like for leaders. Compassion has come to be misunderstood as “just being nice,” when in fact, it is aimed at alleviating suffering and being helpful. LTC provides an approach for individuals and leadership teams to incorporate mindfulness and compassion into their daily leadership with the goal of shifting the way they lead and serve their employees, teams, and customers. As part of this Inspiration Circle, we will dive into real examples of challenging interactions, explore what got in the way, and reflect on the internal and external barriers to bringing compassion into our leadership. 

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!

Writer's Circle: Finding the Personal Story Behind Your Business with Thais Derich

A supportive group of writers who gather together every month at The Hivery to share resources, wisdom, experiences, and receive writer-to-writer support! 

Keep your writing projects in focus by attending The Hivery's monthly Writer's Circle. After this gathering, we continue to cheer each other on while writing at The Hivery, attending other Hivery community events, workshops and participating in our online forums. Come join us!

Hivery Member, Thais Nye Derich, leads the Writer's Circle. At our June gathering, Thais will run a workshop on finding the personal story behind your business. We all feel more connected with someone and their business if we know why they're in business? What's the story behind the business. Why do you do what you do? Was your business sparked by a decade long healing journey? Did you seek the need to empower yourself and in so doing create a business to help others find their authority? Did you work in corporate America for 20 years, burn out, teach yourself to draw, and now sell your art? I will help participants dig out the story that grips their prospects, makes their business human, and, through vulnerability, builds trust and the business.

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. BYO brown-bag lunch discussion.  All are welcome!

On random Sundays, find Allison with her 1967 “Blue Sterling” Smith Corona typewriter clacking out free poems for folks at the San Rafael Farmers’ market. In her past life, she was a registered dietitian and author of books and magazine articles on nutrition (The Health Professional's Guide to Popular Dietary Supplements published by the American Dietetic Association and co-author of The Jungle Effect).  Allison has awakened many of her own long-lost creative dreams and is still in hot pursuit of all forms of creative expression including songwriting, dancing, singing, drawing, poetry, painting, jewelry-making, card-making, children's book story writing, butterfly taming, tree talking, gardening and much more that she joyfully shares in her blog.
