    i guess, personal contributions with rich values and pertinent appeals are most significant in an affinity based platform, where the platform will become a 'Brand' of distinction. so the potentialities and sincere endeavor with rich constituents are essentially to enrich a brand's value. there only lies the gravity of a person. apart from affinity and associating skill, a brand cannot be popular. so personal brand, i guess is relevant, moment the person is having the capacity to contribute or share his skill to usher majority, and thus the platform on which he or she is sharing makes the platform a unique 'brand'. however, lovely insight @Javier 🐝 beBee! enjoyed read. thank you for the share.

    "A lot of people end up sacrificing their dreams. Frank Capra knew that way back in the day when he created “It’s A Wonderful Life”, and it’s a very common theme in both literature and film." It's a very common theme in life in general...What would it really matter to the world if I was not here? Well @Jim Murray...I have to share with you my "It's a Wonderful Life" moment...After taking several weeks away from my practice to care for my father at the end of his "Wonderful Life," the first client I treated upon my return came into my office and broke down in tears...Yes, she had sympathy for me and what I had just been through personally, but more than that, she missed ME...ME...This person she and her body had grown accustomed to seeing...week after week...for relief of her physical discomfort and calming of her mind. She is a kidney transplant patient from birth...thirty five years old and looks like my grandmother...and she missed our time together. I am certainly not working miracles for anyone like Clarence might have done...I am just a human being giving what I can offer...My Time...My Patience...and My Love...That is all I have to give...and I know now, that it is enough...Thank you for the reminder;-)

    #3 @Paul Walters. Sounds to me like you are the best qualified writer to create a treatment for it. The advice I have is simple: encapsulate the story. Don't think of it as anything that's going to be a movie, because the people who read it need to have room to imagine it as such. Don't indicate any camera moves or any sort of cinematic visions. Just break it down into scenes, describe the scenes, dimensionalize the characters and connect the story dots. If you like I can send you one of mine. I actually don't believe in them a lot, because it's just as easy to write the screenplay and a lot more fun. Message me an email address.

    #8 Thanks @Todd Jones. (will follow you soon). I started my business by gradually starting to freelances while I was still working. It wasn't a hassle because the account guy and my art director where both people I was working with in the agency and we were all on top of our game. But I didn't let go of the agency gig for more than 2 years. So that's where this idea came from.

    02/02/2017 #8 Todd Jones
    Finally, a voice of reason! Jim, this is hands down the best advice I've read on the subject.

    25 years ago, with more balls than brains, I turned my back on a stable career to pursue impassioned dreams of fortune and glory. The failed venture left me broke and struggling with debt for more than ten years. I suspect that my experience is far more common than the triumph and satisfaction promised by the "Do What You Love And The Money Will Follow" snake oil peddlers.

    Thankfully I was young enough that I had plenty of time to recover. This might not be the case for those passion seekers struggling through midlife burnout. The statistics are well documented. Nine out of ten business ventures fail within the first three years. Never cash out a retirement fund to pursue a dream. If you are gonna be dumb, you'd better be young.

    Humans are a funny lot. This post should be garnering far more attention and engagement than it has. I suppose it's because of the mortal proclivity to only hear and see what we want to hear and see, and not what we need to.

    Great post @Don 🐝 Kerr. As you are aware we Canucks are home to the busiest highway in the world i.e. 401. According to stats, 1m vehicles per day. Apparently a very annal Canadian sat on the side of the 401and counted until the puck dropped at the Air Canada Centre or he had to go to the bathroom and didn't want to urinate on the 401. Polite eh? Maybe we can include a beBee sign up as part of the 407 toll? Then they can find like minded beBees who hate the toll? In the meantime, I will do my part to introduce beBee to SWO.

    I concur with you Don that beBee is fortunate to have so many talented Canadians on this budding social platform. In fact, Canadian talent might be over represented based on a statistical analysis based on proportionality of the respective populations.
    Therefore, I think it should be expected that beBee will have more total users in the USA compared to Canada based on sheer numbers alone. To wit: the U.S. population is about 325 million compared to about 36 million for our northern neighbor. Thus, your savvy statistical analysis helps put the pending North American swarm into greater perspective. Thanks for the good buzz!

    23/11/2016 #8 Phil Friedman
    @Don 🐝 Kerr, nice piece, indeed. I suggest that the number of Canadian writers on beBee is disproportionately high, while the number of Canadian users is, as you've pointed out, disproportionately low. Why?

    My bet is that the disparity is due to the fact the Canadian writer's community is historically very strong, and that Canadian writers grow and evolve in an environment that values freedom of expression and open exchange very highly. (Anyone who doubts that should watch a couple of installments of "Today in the House of Commons" or some such news program.) And that Canadian writers have found beBee to be a congenial platform for their activities. But that Canadian readers don't find the bulk of what's on the general feed inviting, precisely because it is too emotional and soft, and lacks the edgy humor and verbal give and take that Canadians genuinely love.

    This is obviously IMO, based on my 15 years living and working in Canada. And I stand to be corrected by you, Jim Murray, Kevin Pashuk, Paul "Pablo" Croubalian, Nicole Chardenet, Graham Edwards, Renée Cormier, or other Canadians on beBee. Cheers!

    We’re diverse. We’re multicultural. We’re proud. We’re Toronto. Now we want to prove it to the rest of the world by hosting Expo 2025. Today (Wednesday, October 26th), Yappn CEO Ed Karthaus will present his deposition to Toronto City Council on why Yappn (among many others) supports bidding for Expo 2025 with the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE). Toronto is regularly cited as one of the most diverse metropolitan cities in the world, as well as being one of the safest and most pleasant to live in.

    #26 Sara, I lived and worked in Canada during the height of the PQ, and I always laughed when some of the academics in its upper ranks spoke of secession and joining the U.S., where their minority French rights and aspirations would be better treated. For only ivory tower academics could be so idiotic in their world view. No, check that. I think we've seen that exceeded in the current U.S.presidential election campaign by the bad comb over and the orange skin. Cheers!

    Loved reading your story @Jim Murray. Especially since I lived in Toronto between 1984 and 2009. I have friends who live in every part of Toronto you mention. I have visited St. Catherines and spent much time in the wine country. It is not just that which made the read so enjoyable. You are a true storyteller Jim, a great communicator. As @Phil Friedman said: "Best wishes to you and your wife for a very long, healthy, and happy stay in the new house. And cheers!"

    PS I moved to Toronto from Montreal. I have a little bit of a different perspective re Toronto's history and growth. One thing is that Toronto owes a lot to Renee Levesque (1968-1985) whose separatist party and government led to a huge move out of Montreal, not only of people but of businesses, especially head offices of international businesses, that changed the look of downtown Toronto.

    Thanks for sharing Jim. Somehow your personal tale makes you more of a communications pro to me. A few years back I made a similar decision and moved south of Portland, Oregon to what my friends describe as "where the sidewalk ends." Now, after a divorce and a daughter married and living on the other side of the continent I'm tired of knocking around in a five bedroom house so I'll sell in the spring and try to down size. Moving is never easy, but sometimes you gotta.

    Jim, are you sure this has nothing to do with the Toronto Blue Jays not being in the World Series? (lol). Seriously though, while I've never been to Toronto I've heard wonderful things about it. Plus, I figured if you lived there it had to be(Bee) good. Nonetheless, as I like to say: change is the only constant in life. With that in mind, Jim, it's St. Catharines today and Mars tomorrow (or in 10-20+ years)! Good luck with the move. Also, make some room for us in the USA just in case "you know who" magically becomes President and Americans must flee for greener pastures.
