Entrepreneur's Circle: The Art of Effective Networking and Building Your Network - One Introduction At The Time

GUILD HIVERY 3.png

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

Meet Anne Cocquyt, mission driven community leader and founder of the GUILD. Anne arrived in San Francisco 7 years ago and built her network from scratch. She is now one of the most connected people in Silicon Valley. Her journey inspired her to build a networking platform and facilitate 15,000 connections between like-minded women over the course of the last two years (letsguild.com).

In this interactive session you will hear from Anne how she became a power connector, community leader and tech founder. You will define your networking strategy in an interactive workshop following Anne’s talk and set goals to build your network. Anne will provide examples and share best practices and the tips and tricks how you too can become highly effective in building and nurturing your network within the Hivery community and beyond.

This event is ideal for anybody interested in building more effective networks, activating their existing networks and who want to exchange ideas with introverts and extroverts about the art of purpose-driven networking.

The Hivery integrated the GUILD match-making technology on the Hivery platform, so you too can start building deep connections with other Hivery members. Bring your laptop and we will assist you in setting up your networking profile.

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!

About Dr. Amore

Version 4

In Dr. Amore’s words…

“As if all my life I had been preparing for this…” Born in The City of the Eternal Springtime, surrounded by a luscious nature, a sensuous Latin culture, and raised by a sexuality educator mother…“Sensuality was in the air” and naturally became embedded into my body, heart and soul at an early age.

Throughout my career as an international Sociologist, I lived in many countries and worked in different fields —United Nations, Vogue Magazine in Paris, a Multi-cultural Center in Slovenia, etc. Across time, space and activities, my curiosity and fascination for diverse sensual expressions grew and eventually, prompted me to study Tantric, Taoist and other conscious sexuality training.

When I arrived in the Bay Area, 19 years ago, it was a time to reinvent my life and career, I pondered…”From all my different professional offerings, what is the one that has the potential to bring more joy, love, and fulfillment to more people?” Sensuality-Sexuality was the answer!

It has been my great joy and honor to guide women —as well as men, and couples— to reconnect to their natural sensual essence, release painful patterns, and express the beauty and goodness of their sensuality and sexuality as an Art.

In the end, what distinguishes my approach in this field, is that I bring to it my deep, deep connection to Soul and Spirit; bridging the dimension of the Sacred with the Sensual.

Writer's Circle: Open Mic

WritersCircle_ 20160727-_DSC1760_Square.jpg

Every month The Hivery invites new and established authors to share their wisdom, experiences and resources for writers and non-writers who love books.

In June, it’s OPEN MIC at The Hivery's Writer's Circle! Time to shine! Time to take the stage and bring your writing to an audience. You'll be amazed at the benefits of reading your work aloud: tons of editing will happen beforehand, your writing will increase between now and then, and you'll feel that amazing feeling of expressing yourself in front of a supportive group.

It can be anything from an excerpt of your published or unpublished book or short story, a fresh piece of writing that you write especially for this open mic opportunity, or something like an awesome blog post or newsletter. It's all about you and getting to know you and your work better.

We'll put names in a hat and pull out readers. Slots are 7 minutes long and will be timed.

Let's get to know each other's work in this fun and interactive way. This is not a critique but a celebration! There will only be applause at the end of your reading. Bring something to share to eat or drink if you'd like.

The Writer's Circle is facilitated by Hivery Member, Thais Derich. Thais Derich's memoir—Second Chance: A Mother’s Quest for a Natural Birth after a Cesarean (She Writes Press, May 9, 2017)—was a finalist for the Foreword Reviews' 2017 Book of the Year Award. Second Chance was also a finalist for the Creative Non-Fiction Magazine’s Baby Anthology. Thais is an international writer and public speaker on "Being the Hero of Your Life" and "Seeing Invisible Choices" in childbirth and beyond! She is also the founder of the "Write Your Impact" book program.

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

Hivery Circle: Yearning to Belong: Why we seek meaningful connection, community, and the support of each other

FutureState_Hivery_KTS_200_CROP.jpg

Hivery Founder & CEO Grace Kraaijvanger will speak and facilitate a lively, interactive discussion on why we seek connectedness and a yearning to belong more than ever before. While technology and social media have provided us with the ability to stay connected, we’re more mobile and increasingly disconnected, leaving us with temporary, ephemeral closeness. The natural desire for more intimate and authentic connection is what is driving people to communities like The Hivery where we can experience solidarity in communion, beauty, and art.

Dutch writer Harry Mulish of Two Women said, “Every person has, I believe, the feeling that she doesn’t belong, in the lives of other people. That she is in some way different, a guest, and she takes all possible measures to make sure that others won’t notice. This is the feeling that all people have, and that is precisely why we all belong together.”

Grace will discuss how we experience belonging, why we go through different transitions in life that lead to the pursuit of greater fulfillment and how community is the modern day spiritual solution for greater closeness and deeper meaning.

Fitting in is about assessing a situation and becoming who you need to be accepted. Belonging, on the other hand, doesn’t require us to change who we are.
— Brene Brown

Don’t hesitate to bring a friend or come alone and mingle with your Hivery community or feel free to bring a friend. Guests will enjoy complimentary lite bites and local wines by Bee Hunter Wine and sips from Living GTS Foods Kombucha.

ALL ARE WELCOME!

The Provocative Path to Playing Full-Out Professionally

IMG_2229.jpg

Join us for an opportunity to explore inspiration and creativity in community!

We’re thrilled to welcome Hivery member, Sweta Chawla to lead a workshop about creating and sustaining work that is both passionate and purposeful. This event is designed for both entrepreneurs and “bridge folks” - ambitious professionals in traditional jobs who want more meaning, creativity and impact in their work who have multiple passions and geniuses but are not sure how to leverage and unify them in to a project, business or new position within an organization.

By the end of this experiential workshop through a mix of powerful visualization and creative role play, participants will:

  • Identify what really holds them back from creating and sustaining work that is both passionate and purposeful

  • Discover unorthodox and highly effective ways to navigate important career and life transitions

  • Participate in an experience that will offer clarity for their initial next step

  • Clarify their next steps to build a bridge from where they are to where they want to be

Dr. Sweta held a very accomplished decade-long career as a professor of pharmacy. The premature birth of her son and an unexpected disappointment in her golden handcuff job, lead her to make several life and career pivots.

Dr. Sweta is author of the book I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For…Now What? and contributor to the anthology She’s Got This: Essays on Standing Strong and Moving On. She has published articles and essays in several journals and magazines and has spoken on many stages and panels, including the White House.

In her signature talk The Provocative Path to Playing Full-Out, Dr. Sweta reveals why if you want a career and life filled with purpose and passion you need to dive deep and disrupt your dynamics with life.

Entrepreneur's Circle: Values-Based Investing for All with Marlis Jansen & Barbara Pierce

Gold Coins and plant isolated on white background

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

Does your investment advisor or financial planner know what matters most to you?  

Have you wondered about how you might engage in values based investing?  

Whether it be through traditional investing, impact investing or philanthropy, many of you use your personal financial capital to support issues about which you care deeply.  No two ways about it - the way you use your money is an expression of who you are. This interactive session is about becoming more personally connected to your investing AND to the advisors with whom you work.

In this interactive and FUN workshop,  Marlis Jansen and Barbara Pierce, both Hivery members, will explore how to make your investing an intentional expression of YOU.  

First, Marlis, a financial therapist, wealth dynamics coach and instructor for Women with Capital, will conduct some interactive exercises to help you articulate your “financial identity,” clarify the values you want reflected in your investments, and how to better partner with your financial advisor.  Barbara, Founder of Women with Capital, will introduce the fundamentals of impact investing and explore several ways to achieve both financial returns and social impact simultaneously. (Spoiler alert: the idea that you have to give up returns to do impact investing is a myth!)

The goal is to get curious together about how to make investing a personal, powerful and playful process that YOU drive, not your advisor.  Join us!

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!

Hivery Circle: A Fireside Chat with Chip Conley on WISDOM@WORK: The Making of a Modern Elder

A Fireside Chat with Chip Conley on WISDOM@WORK: The Making of a Modern Elder, Moderated by The Hivery Founder, Grace Kraaijvanger.

ChipConleybook_SQ.jpg

In Chip Conley’s new work WISDOM@WORK: The Making of a Modern Elder, he shares his experiences as a “mentern” (part mentor/part intern) at Airbnb, which inspired him to start a movement to ignite more collaboration between generations, and recognize that wisdom seeking is as important as wisdom keeping. “How do we reframe a lifetime of experience to remain relevant in the modern workplace?” Chip’s experiences at Airbnb give us the answer: become a “Modern Elder,” someone who serves and learns, is mentor and intern, student and sage, all at the same time. Here are just some of the definitions of A Modern Elder that Chip explores in his new work:

What is A Modern Elder?

A Modern Elder is WISE: “Elderly” refers to the years one has lived, but “Elder” refers to what one has done with those years. Modern Elders synthesize their lifetime of experiences into a legacy of wisdom.

A Modern Elder is CURIOUS: Modern Elders cultivate a catalytic curiosity that allows them to look at the world with uncontaminated wonder.

A Modern Elder is ADAPTABLE: The Modern Elder has acquired many skills over time, but most valuable is the skill of mastery, which can be applied to learning new things.

If you want to evolve your wisdom, and tap into your brilliance through the modern elder teachings, join us for this enlivening conversation at The Hivery with mentor, innovator and teacher, Chip Conley.

Don’t hesitate to bring a friend or come alone and mingle with your Hivery community or feel free to bring a friend. Guests will enjoy complimentary lite bites and local wines by Bee Hunter Wine and sips from Living GTS Foods Kombucha.

ALL ARE WELCOME!

Entrepreneur's Circle: Let the Community Drive You!

 Talia Laird Photography (from Oconomowoc, Wisconin) photographed this Breast Express event at Authentic Birth Center, in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. The event was sponsored by Pumpspotting and featured their giant breastfeeding RV. This wonderful event brough together local breastfeeding moms and Milwaukee area breastfeeding resources to create a community around breastfeeding.

Join us for our casual and conversational Entrepreneur's Circle at The Hivery! This is another way to make sure you're not tackling the business of building a business on your own, but rather with the trusted circle of The Hivery community. This month, we welcome Amy VanHaren, Founder & CEO of pumpspotting.

The journey of a startup is filled with questions about where to go. The answer isn’t knowing the exact way forward, but rather, knowing exactly who you serve. An amazing thing happens when you ask the community for help: they direct you. This is the story of a Founder who took her app on the road in a 40-foot Breast Express RV and found true north by uniting mothers online and in person.

Key Takeaways:

  • The value in following what nourishes you.

  • How to bring a vision to life to benefit others.

  • How listening to your community can help shape your business.

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!

Entrepreneur's Circle: Owning Your Value with Grace Kraaijvanger

HivCircleOpenMic_mar19_KTS_142SQ.jpg

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

In this workshop, Grace will lay the money cards on the table and dispel some common myths and patterns that she sees occurring around money, especially from some newer entrepreneurs. She’ll share four money myths that she’s identified, and best practices for how to turn those myths around into valuable truth (and money in the bank). Together, we’ll continue the conversation around money and help each other as a community continue to honor our worth and respect the wisdom and value that each of us bring to the table.

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!

About Grace Kraaijvanger

Grace Kraaijvanger is the Founder and CEO of The Hivery. She is a visionary entrepreneur, artist, and community-maker who created The Hivery as a realization of her longstanding dream to bring a community of women together in a beautiful space that would inspire and empower them to reach their fullest potential. From the beginning, The Hivery has been a metaphor for so much more than just a physical space; it represents a movement and an elevation of women.

Before launching The Hivery in 2014 and after a decade-long career as a professional ballet and modern dancer in San Francisco, Grace entered into motherhood and began working as a marketing executive for Fortune 500 technology companies. But the unexpected loss of her mother catalyzed her to search for something deeper; her life’s true purpose. On that search she realized there were women, just like her, in pursuit of their next chapter: women who wanted to switch careers, start businesses, go back to work, or change direction to pursue a passion. Coupled with the realization that there was no “space”, both literally and metaphorically, for women to find and create meaningful work outside of “work” norms, she decided to go after her dream and The Hivery was born.

Over the years as The Hivery continues to grow, Grace has discovered much of what she knows to be true about starting and running a business is rooted in dance and artistic expression: the importance of showing up every day and doing the work; surrounding yourself with people who believe in your unique purpose; and leveraging setbacks as invaluable learning tools. “Entrepreneurs are artists of life,” according to Grace.

Grace is a go-to speaker and business mentor who has spoken at high-profile events such as Watermark, The Girls Lounge at Dreamforce, Listen to Your Mother, Woven Women’s Conference, as well as countless Hivery events and gatherings. The Hivery was awarded “Best Office Space in the U.S. and Canada” by Wayfair, Inc. in 2017, and Grace and The Hivery have been featured in outlets such as Domino, San Francisco Chronicle, Marin Independent Journal, Huffington Post and Entrepreneur. She is on the board for the SF Dance Film Festival and the Nasdaq YeX Advisory Board. Grace currently resides in Mill Valley with her husband and two teenage children.

Writer's Circle with Samantha Wallen

Your Sacred Story Image.jpg

Every month The Hivery invites new and established authors to share their wisdom, experiences and resources for writers and non-writers who love books.

On Thursday, April 11th we are thrilled to welcome Samantha Wallen! A Restorative Writing Mentor, she helps you drop your agenda and write what wants to be written so you can touch what is precious inside you, and our world, by using words as a pathway to reach what lives beyond language and bring that alive in your book, your blog, or whatever you write. Restorative Writing is memoir-based writing that awakens your voice and heals your spirit. It slows you down and tunes you in to the heartbeat and deep purpose of your book, your blog, your work, and your life. Restorative Writing deepens our shared conversation of aliveness–the ordinary, the mystical, the brilliant, and the wounded, forgotten, grieved and silenced parts. It brings all of us home to rest on the sacred ground of our shared human story so we can connect to and serve life and each other more fully on and off the page. 

In this workshop, Sam will be leading us through a guided writing exercise designed to deepen our conversation with ourselves, our work and writing, and with each other and whatever mysteries are waiting to be expressed and revealed. 

The Writer's Circle is facilitated by Hivery Member, Thais Derich. Thais Derich's memoir—Second Chance: A Mother’s Quest for a Natural Birth after a Cesarean (She Writes Press, May 9, 2017)—was a finalist for the Foreword Reviews' 2017 Book of the Year Award. Second Chance was also a finalist for the Creative Non-Fiction Magazine’s Baby Anthology. Thais is an international writer and public speaker on "Being the Hero of Your Life" and "Seeing Invisible Choices" in childbirth and beyond! She is also the founder of the "Write Your Impact" book program.

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

Hivery Circle: A Soul of Money Gathering featuring Lynne Twist & Sara Vetter

In April, we celebrate the importance of shifting from scarcity to abundance! We are thrilled to welcome special guests, acclaimed author and speaker, Lynne Twist, and speaker and coach, Sara Vetter, of the Soul of Money Institute.

soulofmoney_book_MG_0024Brighter.jpg

We all live in a ruthless, unforgiving money culture. Most of us feel that we are doing something wrong with money, no matter what our financial circumstances. Our relationship with money is often an area of life that harbors anxiety, suffering and fear for people from the most economically disadvantaged to people of great wealth.

This talk will address the mindset of scarcity and how it grips us, having us live in a constant state of worry and fear, rather than allowing us to see the bounty, flow, generosity and sufficiency that is available to each of us in life.

Through compelling stories and poignant insights, Lynne and Sara will examine the mindset of scarcity, explore the distinction of sufficiency, and empower us to discover how to liberate ourselves from old ways of thinking. She will address how financial resources and other key resources can flow, nourish and bless us, and the world in which we live.

Key Talking Points:

  • The culture of money

  • The condition or mindset of scarcity

  • The three toxic myths

  • The context of sufficiency

  • Money is like water

  • Moving from fear and scarcity to sufficiency, abundance and generosity.

Don’t hesitate to bring a friend or come alone and mingle with your Hivery community or feel free to bring a friend. Guests will enjoy complimentary lite bites and local wines by Bee Hunter Wine and sips from Living GTS Foods Kombucha.

ALL ARE WELCOME at this beautiful event celebrating abundance.

When you let go of trying to get more of what you don’t really need, it frees up oceans of energy to make a difference with what we have.
— Lynne Twist
When we make a difference with what we have – it expands!
— Lynne Twist
What you appreciate appreciates!

Inspiration Circle: Finding Openness and Aliveness Through Improv with Shannon Hughes

Shannon_Hughes.JPEG

The Inspiration Circle is a facilitated group session all about personal development, 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.

On March 28th, we are excited to welcome member, writer and performer Shanon Hughes to guide us through a connective experience that leverages improv theater and exercises to garner open-hearted communication and creative ideation.

In this Inspiration Circle we’ll come together as a collective of storytellers, creatives and business leaders to take improv theater off the stage and into The Hivery! Open our heart to "Yes, and..." through an experiential workshop filled with games, exercises and lively discussion around the impact of key improv principles to life, community and business.

As Keith Johnstone, a pioneer of improvisational theater says, “There are people who prefer to say 'yes' and there are people who prefer to say 'no'. Those who say 'yes' are rewarded by the adventures they have. Those who say 'no' are rewarded by the safety they attain.”

Let’s choose to discover the power of “yes” together!

Key takeaways for participants from this workshop include:

  • An understanding of improv as a path to personal and professional aliveness.

  • A sampling of games to support collaboration, improve communication and spark creative decision making.

  • Play based tools to quiet the ego in lieu of non-judgemental engagement.

Improv is all about kicking our ego-based thinking mind to the curb, in favor of uninhibited play. Neurological studies abound, touting the impacts that improv has on performers' brains - boosting self-expression activity in our prefrontal cortex, while blocking self-monitoring activity. From that place comes freer communication, creative flow and connection. Oh, and it's a whole lot of fun to boot!

This valuable workshop is not to be missed so be sure to grab your seat!

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!

The Product of You: A Two-Week Personal Branding Workshop with Grace Kraaijvanger

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.

Hivery Circle: International Women's Day Open Mic Night

March’s Hivery Circle celebrates International Women’s Day and the importance of elevating female voices and sharing our stories!

HivCircleOpenMic_SophiaM_678A1044.jpg

We are celebrating At The Hivery we believe in the power of storytelling - that when we tell our stories, and be present to witness others share theirs, magic happens. Together, we will explore the topic of what it means to be a courageous woman. Our speakers will share what it feels like to face their fears and step into a place of vulnerability and bravery.

Your story matters and when you use your voice, particularly to share an experience, you start to see the ripple effect it has on those around you. At The Hivery we believe in the power of storytelling - that when we tell our stories, and be present to witness others share theirs, magic happens.

This is your chance to apply to be part of our special Open Mic event. You can apply for your five minute open mic slot - limited spots available!

This does not need to be a rehearsed speech, but is rather the opportunity that you’ve been looking for to stretch yourself in the safety of your community and to give you a chance to tell a story that feels right to you. We will ask that you stick to sharing for only 5 minutes.

Open Mic Guidelines:

  • You must register for the event to be part of the open mic.

  • Please fill out the application before Wednesday February 27th and share the overview or bullet points of the story that you will share which must keep to five minutes in length.

  • You will be notified if you are part of the open mic or on the waiting list by Friday March 1st at the latest. If you are unable to attend then your place will be given to the next person on the waiting list.

The Hivery Spring Incubator 3-Month Program Information Session with Grace Kraaijvanger

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.
