Eve Beattie, mum of four became a self-employed Virtual Assistant last year to fit around her family life. Since then, she opened a second business called The Hive which is based in Magherafelt. The Hive is a co-working, flexible office space for entrepreneurs and freelancers to work and connect in. Her customers can choose from a private office, dedicated desk or hot desk in a shared office with other entrepreneurs. Due to the flexibility provided, customers can pay as they go or sign up to monthly memberships.

After needing an alternative work space, Eve went looking for a flexible space for her to work in other than coffee shops. She found no such place in Mid Ulster and after realising this gap in the market, Eve went looking for properties and took it from there. Through The Hive, Eve has met new people and loves learning about their business. “I am really enjoying being on a journey with the startups who use The Hive. It’s great to celebrate their successes with them and see their new businesses grow.” Eve’s ideal customer is someone energetic entrepreneurs with a passion for business, co-working and networking and will also help spread the word about The Hive and bring in new members.

Eve joined Mums at Work after attending her first event and left feeling like she had a ‘safe place’ to promote her services before going public. Since then, Mum’s at Work has taken the fear out of networking events for Eve as they are so organised and allowed her to meet so many fabulous ladies. She has also worked with other Mum’s at Work members and purchased some of their products and services. Eve has also found a number of clients through Mum’s at Work.

In Eve’s spare time, she loves to relax with a glass of wine while reading a book or watching a box set. Eve also loves spending time with her four children, Daniel (8), Rory (6), Emma (4) and Eoin (2) and her husband Pat.
