Hello all you beautiful bees! 

Hive Theory is so excited to start blogging in the new year! We cannot wait to share our passions and our reasons with our wonderful hive.

For our first post of 2018, we want to talk about the importance of building and fostering connections within your community. Making meaningful connections is the number one goal of Hive Theory, and we hope to consistently share the importance of this with members of our hive. Fort Collins is a tight knit community, there is no denying that. However, there are a lot of missed opportunities for connections. By staying in your comfort zone and only connecting with people that you know, you are severely limiting yourself, your business, and your community. 

Because we have fallen into this trap ourselves, we wanted to create a networking event that forces you to get out of your comfort zone and talk to people you normally wouldn't seek out. With this in mind, Social Roulette was born. We are lucky enough to team up with McKenzie Hoffman of Blue Harvest Apparel fame to create this completely fresh networking opportunity. Social Roulette will be a night of networking with just the right amount of structure. By assigning tables and time limits, we can guarantee that you are going to end the night meeting new and unique individuals. This event will also benefit the incredible local nonprofit, Sproutin' Up. Sproutin' Up works with the youth in the community to support a healthy lifestyle. 

Expanding your connections is vital to maintaining a healthy business within the community. Making meaningful connections not only gives the possibility of more business, but give you a deeper understanding of the community you are a part of. Hearing and understanding different perspectives and experiences does nothing but enrich your community.
