    #56 This Jeep was 'borrowed', @Aaron 🐝 Skogen, when on one of my frequent trips to Java. As I stated in an earlier comment below, there are a few Jeeps used for regular tours up Mount Merapi, close to Yogyakarta, where I have family connections, but I'm not to sure how they got there. I fear that the owners know their worth only too well, not to mention that they look after them like pets. Add to this my spotters fee, handling fee, facilitation costs for various officials in order to smoothen the export process, then, of course the shipping charges, and the bottom line is that the bargain basement cheapest mates rates price elevates to penthouse suite price. But, hey, happy to help if you are really keen. 🤣😂🤣

Your comment to Gert Scholtz' article about the "relevant" button was the most poignant in that it crystallized in my mind what my mission now is; and YES I choose to accept it.

    #6 With all due respect, Anne, I disagree. Perhaps, it is, in part a matter of perspective. We in South Florida are so used to seeing all the "cheeky" bikinis on the beaches, worn by middle-schoolers up through grandmothers, that Candice's photos hardly raised an eyebrow for most of us. Which is what engendered my original "just another SoBe babe" comment.

    However, the core of @Candice 🐝 Galek's campaign did not really have to do with a tactic drawn from the history of advertising ala Vance Packard. It had to do with seeing that on LinkedIn every time a critic posted a derogatory comment, that comment distributed Candice's post to all of that critics connections. Just as the comments from her supporters did. And that, I submit, is the nub of the issue.

    BTW, as a personal matter and for the record, I find the oft-used social media technique of appealing to readers for likes and shares, independent of any consideration of the merit of the content involved, significantly more objectionable than Candice's variant on disruption marketing. Just saying. Cheers!

    #3 Definitely, she was really able to utilize that into more publicity for herself without more capital =) She nailed it right out of the universe and then some. She killed it!!!!!!!!

    29/06/2017 #4 Anne 🐝 Thornley-Brown, MBA
    #2 Yup. She definitely did not tell the whole story. If one is going to write a post, they should at least be honest.

    I will never respect or resort to the methods she used to gain "exposure" and attention online. Posting photos of women in skimpy clothing is not something that I respect. Cheesecake is old hat and it is definitely not an example of "marketing genius". Women have fought for decades to be respected in business as equals, for their intelligence. Women like Candice have flipped the calendar back to the 1950s.

    Most of what she shared was really basic but Ninja Outreach does sound like a great tool and I appreciate her sharing that.

    #2 Well, Kevin, that was at the core of Candice's program of "disruption marketing" -- every outspoken critic spread exposure (no pun intended) just as much or more than every supporter. Her campaign in LinkedIn was brilliant. I originally wondered in print whether @Candice 🐝 Galek was "just another SoBe babe in a bikini" but then came to understand that she is a very sharp business person, honest and open, and never haughty or assuming. Which is why despite the controversy she has become a popular figure on social media and the internet. IMO. Cheers!

    But Candice, you overlook a critical point here: Be a decent human being by helping as well as taking when it comes to generating exposure, open to genuine exchange, and never too much of a celeb to answer a bona fides query or comment. Which you are in spades, although too modest to say so in this piece. Cheers!

    Intially our pain leads us to unbearable and excruciating one where we feel that it's never going to end but that pain slows down slowly and gradually it makes us strong to question what the damn is pain.

    #33 If we look back n history and whom e call disabled achievements we shall be sorry for our modest contributions. The "Dean of Arab Literature" the Egyptian Dr. Taha Hussein became blind when he was only two years old. One of the greatest musicians who passed away three years back was also blind.As you say blind people can see what we fail to. When they are seeing we are blind. Mind you dear @CityVP Manjit these comments from you and few of @Louise Smith will be the basis for my next buzz.

    #32 Do not forget that there were New Testament words such as "they have eyes but they do not see, they have ears but they do not hear" - and that on any given day half of the Earth is in light and the other is in dark. A blind genius is someone whose eyeball does not function but in the black space that is blindness, the blind man is not blind when he can see greater things in life that we cannot see. In seeing the blind man as disabled we continue to see life as a square thing where we place people in boxes and need these compartments to categorize people and find comfort in this conformity, rather than be in the sphere of greatness we live in.

    #30 Dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit- keep writing and I keep my mind busy. If I tell you that I have three buzz ideas from your comments on this buzz I shal be understating reality.
    You wrote "All media is the creation of someone's vision but not all vision is media". Immediately, you brought to my mind a presentation that I wrote on Unequal Opposites.
    https://www.slideshare.net/hudali15/unequal-opposites
    Now, you provide me with a great example of what I mean. The eyeball has a ball shape regardless of the shape of the eye. I wonder if the focus of the eyeball is affected by its surrounding (eye shape) and what factors will affect the performance of the eyeball, besides its surrounding. Al I can say is that your comment leads me to the freedom of asking, wondering, searching and seeking knowledge. Your probing comment has turned my eyes into new possibilities.
    CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    28/06/2017 #30 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    #25 Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, no matter what particular shape each of our eyes are, the eye is always a ball and that ball is either connected to the media it see's or the vision that feeds conscious existence. Our Earth is a ball there are no square planets only square rocks. We have certainly never found another Earth, never mind a Square One.

    This eye ball either feeds the brain of control which is our external existence or it feeds the brain of freedom which is our internal choice. For me this is profound as anything I can think, the measure of which is always the profoundness of thoughtless existence or simply thinking about life rather than creating value that is life.

    Somewhere along the journey vision becomes control, and that is the only sadness we see in our world, the happiness is our ability transform vision into a life that values freedom.

    All media is the creation of someone's vision but not all vision is media - vision is either based on all our yesterdays or it is the laser of now, etching a new future, new ways of thinking, smarter ways of being because freedom is our freedom to think, have vision, and add value to life.

    Great vision creates great media but it should never substitute greater vision - and that is the challenge called leadership. We can either lead for control or lead for freedom. The great leaders will create greater freedom because their brain is a ball, their eyes are ball and with in this ball the great game of life plays out just like a marriage - better or for worse, in sickness and in health.

However; I paused on this segment of your comment "But I've always remained true to my own course and never felt the need to change direction. I've always listened to my heart and my intuition". For me, I did superficially change direction, but now thinking about it I actually changed methods.

    #23 If I claim that I don't feel sad because of the truth in your words @CityVP 🐝 Manjit then I shall be lying. "so the irony is that in this state we are not focused on spreading our branches and roots, we become merely object of the media owner". This is one example from your comment of what I mean.
    I find myself drifting in to a river because of your comment. You wrote "There are many people who are driftwood just being carried by the river of media". I am not in the river media. I am in a different river flowing with some new thoughts because of your superb comment. Again, you wrote "our round peg is the human eye and the square hole the media we fit that eye into,..." Now, I find myself asking how about people with eye shapes other than rounded? Some people have protruded eyes, others eyes that are upturned and others downturned eyes. Are these related to the shape of our mind eyes? Are those people with more rectangular-like eyes fit more in the square pig?
    Finally, @Sara Jacobovici may find this part of your comment relevant to her buzzes on Monday Talks!
    You kindle my mind Manjit.

    I'm so glad that my response to your comment has served as an inspiration for this thought-provoking post. It made me think about my path of life.
    I am on the same steep and narrow pathway I had chosen many years ago.
    The path went over many mountains and hills. It sometimes went through a dark woods. But I've always remained true to my own course and never felt the need to change direction. I've always listened to my heart and my intuition.
    There were some detours off the path that kept me moving forward when I encountered obstacles, but these detours brought me back to the same trail again.
    I respect the path of others. Some chose to take a new direction in their walk of life. But I think, and this is something life taught me, that we are still able to grow although keeping the same direction.
    However, never say never.
    We develop through the whole life. When we reach the top of one mountain, life takes us to another. I'm now standing at the top of the mountain of my success. Perhaps my heart will tell me it's time for a change and show me a different direction. :-)

    #19 A round peg can fit a square hole but what we do not see is that our round peg is the human eye and the square hole the media we fit that eye into, whether it be a television screen or a always-on cell phone screen. This inevitably brings me back to the conditioned (if not mentally sedated) lives many commercialized lives lead. I am not excluded from living this branded and mediated existence and also partake in the very same conditioning, sometimes my round eyes are also transfixed into the square hole of media.

    What we learn from your buzz is that even tree's talk to the fungi because the tree is aware of its environment, which is exactly what we are not aware when our attention is focused on a square hole - a square hole that has a black hole kind of force and attraction. Yet even as I think this, I am aware that the brightness of the screen (which is actually a rectangle - so we use the word square as a metaphorical approximation) has a backdrop to it, which is the room. With a cellphone the backdrop is whatever environment we happen to be in when we are engaged on that screen. If we notice the backdrop and the screen as a window that supports our awareness, then we are legions smarter than any tree, otherwise we become a lump of dead wood.

    There are many people who are driftwood just being carried by the river of media and brand so the irony is that in this state we are not focused on spreading our branches and roots, we become merely object of the media owner. Tree's are not slaves, they are living contributors to the act of life giving yet we are the one's who are rooted. So the moral here for beBee is not to turn more people into wood but to focus on spreading the roots and branches so meaning and not media or even madness flow through them. Servant leadership is not a top-down model of the universe, servant leadership is a part of this tree of life.

    #20 Yes, walking the goat path enriches us with its challenges and the joy of surmounting them as well the gained experiences. I fully concur with you @Harvey Lloyd. We can hover over the path, but walking it is what makes us more wise. The new products deprive us mostly of this joy as they take us on a helicopter trip.
    Harvey Lloyd
    28/06/2017 #20 Harvey Lloyd
    The goat path of life is difficult. We live in a world that wants us to believe that we can use various products and services that grant us instant gratification. Even with enough money this lifestyle is so unfulfilling.

    The difficulty of the goat path is where character is built and gratification becomes wisdom. With each branch of the path new wisdom and understanding is found along with a deep sense of joy.

    The one who rides the helicopter to the top of the mountain vs walking the path is a challenging branch. But i know the walk along the path will give me new beginnings i would never achieve within the helicopter. Although both people would bring home similar pictures of the event the one who walks the path will bring a rich and shareable experience.

    The picturesque part of your comment moved me deeply dear @Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA. "When growth is that of a slug traversing acres of weed infested land, we are inclined to believe were are at a standstill". You really got me thinking and drawing. When I do that I know that I have to build on it, which I will. You know better than I how to communicate your thoughts with pictures. I am very happy that you find the buzz useful, namely that your eloquent comment shows your deep understanding of it.

    Thanks for another thoughtful share, Ali. Your mind must be working at the speed of light to continue to present us with such valuable and thought-provoking posts daily. What resonates most, with me, in this particular post is your comment "It is not in big leaps that we create growth and space for further growth. It is only possible for people who see the future resulting from taking simple steps today". When growth is that of a slug traversing acres of weed infested land, we are inclined to believe were are at a standstill. And, of course, there are those occasions when it's 'forced' upon us and we stumble into it thinking we have no room for it; however it eventually finds a place and fits in allowing us to move into a better, or more unique place in our lives. Once again you have put something which can be difficult and stressful into simple words which - as always - inspire. P.S. I've viewed the 'egg' Slideshare twice; and still love it.

    #18 "oxidize our ideas?". You know @Harvey Lloyd this idea is simply great. Ideas need oxidation- that is a topic on its own. Idea Oxidation is surely a forthcoming buzz. This is what you are doing Harvey and I feel a new idea has oxidized in my mind. Is there a better proof for the idea of this buzz than your comment? I doubt
    Harvey Lloyd
    29/06/2017 #18 Harvey Lloyd
    #17 A closed system, in your analogy, would indicate that no oxygen is present. For life the oxidizer, oxygen, is required for healthy growth. With out this many microbes can take advantage of our systems that degrade our own existence. Maybe the voids are a place where the oxygen of other wise people can share and oxidize our ideas?

    Great discussion and concepts.

    #14 Dear @Harvey Lloyd- your comment is so important for all people and for leaders and communicators. Yes, I couldn't agree more with you. The voids are also a mean of feedback> It is so important that we do this. You remind me of tightly closed systems as they don't allow for any air infiltration. The result will be moulding and fungal growth. We need those breathing voids so that what we contribute may not have mould growing in it. This ties up nicely with the earlier comment of @Pascal Derrien.
    Your second hugely important point is your writing "Without this, they work strictly from the assumed vision of the leader". With the control and command mentality this is what shall happen. I don't think this issue has received the attention it

    Thought provoking buzz this morning @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. In communicating ideas or leadership topics i would imagine that you are tapping into the skills and wisdom of others. In order to do this one would think you need enough information distributed to engage the wisdom and not so much that it becomes a directive. A directive would establish that wisdom was not expected but action is.

    Unlike technical writing, creative communications require a certain level of "voids" where other participants could fit their on life narrative in the the thought pattern. This would allow the participants to sense the perspective and then apply their own communication narrative to the same ideal. If the participant cant find a place to insert their narrative they can only offer an overview of what they sensed.

    In leadership it is always important to communicate in such a way that your team can insert their own personal and professional experience within the paradigm. Without this, they work strictly from the assumed vision of the leader. Motivation is lost unless the team member can find themselves within your narrative.

    Thanks for another trail of wisdom.

    sculpture is like frozen music! apparently it appears as static, as we tend to see that there is no space. consequently we are deprived of enjoying the music of sculpture. we do have tendencies to act against nature, lest we would not have cloth from cotton. yet, the space is always there as, we cannot rule out the spiral feature of nature, which actually navigate us to enjoy the beauty of space as well time, enable us to realize we too are the product of space and time, and not being fully exploited according to the potential, there are yet so many things yet to reveal. however, Great insight sir @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee! enjoyed read and shared. thank you for such wonderful share sir.

    My sense is that you are combining space and time @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. Space is definitely necessary for opportunity to grow, but you are also describing, "the future resulting from taking simple steps today." What I am hearing is that if there is no space made available, we are stuck. There is no movement ahead. The quote that comes to mind regarding leaving "nooks and crannies for us, the readers, to ponder on and come up with ideas to fill these spaces", is the one by Mozart. he says, "“The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between.” If he didn't allow for the silence between the notes and with the use of musical notation of rests, we wouldn't be able to fill in those spaces with the music we can hear. Thank you for another thought provoking buzz Dr. Ali.

    #95 I totally agree with you, limited or oriented html insert would be awesome and secure on the other hand. I am just saying that by the time we speak there ain't possibility to do so in the Producer, which limits 2 things: the 700 social media worldwide platform shares and the ability for Pros & semi-pros to make a living out of their talents and be compliant with sponsors or their third parties. Thats all about menu ribbon management limited today. takes minutes to do so ...not days or month.

    #89 I'd settle for limited HTML tag capability. Things like would allow for inserting code as text.

    I'm sure Javi and the Team can get around any security issues, but that just might require a manual vetting process. I'm not sure if that would be a good use of available manpower. I see where you're going with this, Stephan, and I agree it could be a good thing. Javi is in the best position to determine if it's worth the effort.

    Yup @Chas ✌️ Wyatt , you spotted ith rightaway, thanks for the like, i bet you wouldn't say no to a reccuring revenue from 0.5 to 5K a month to use the platform forma professional purpose. Linkedin is for recruiting right? To get hired you have to pay features to maximise your visbility chance in job applications to be featured. So you pay to be selected and then eliminated...logical. Bloggers same story. But only one candidate is hired, other are done. If the avenue is taken technically and strategically by beBee, the platform become a necesary tool to put bread on the table and feed your kids. While economy will hipothetically give u a job, well you make a living on ur own with beBee producers. Even sponsors will flee LinkedIn.

    That would create jobs and paid short mandate based on results here on beBee platform. Call it whatever you eant or paid social selling, independant writers or team assembled under an agreement by a company doing that will transform a passionate hobby into a semi-pro activities unless some do that 100% for a living. I am just saying that because i have software co-authors daily, but 32 bees join my sponsord content marketplace along with 1247 others from FaceBook.

    @Javier 🐝 beBee i cant help being curious on the september's version: in the software industry i work myself with co-authors sharing credit and royalties, but we do use SaaS cloud collaborative platform to work together on the same scheduled pieces of work, architecture, visual database, lines of codes, beta tests etc...So my question is pre-production beBee producer will it allow multiple bees working on the same initiator article and give them credits as co-authors in the publishing footer? Or co-writing wil not be available, i am asking that because too many sponsors and clients i am working with are asking to plan budgets accordingly. Industry market segments concerned: Soonsored content by vendors who would like team of bloggers to buzz, video blog and showcase features and benefits of their products or services by the Art of Story telling.

    @Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝 Irreverent and enjoyable Flavio! And here is one more from Africa: A lion is capable of capturing, killing, and eating a field mouse. But the energy required to do so exceeds the caloric content of the mouse itself. So a lion that spends its day hunting and eating field mice would slowly starve to death. A lion can't live on field mice. A lion needs antelope. Antelope are big animals. They take more speed and strength to capture and kill, but once killed, they provide a feast for the lion and her pride. So ask yourself: 'Do I spend today chasing mice or hunting antelope?

    Great points about being a true leader @Brigette Hyacinth! This one stood out: "Humility is a critical leadership success factor. Leading with humility means focusing on others and practicing the servant leadership. True leaders always aim to serve rather than be served." I've had one leader in my life who truly stood out and that was our director of Respiratory Therapy. He was kind, quiet, had a lot of humility, led by example and was extremely intelligent. Our department or as we'd be called today, our team functioned quite well as a team because of his excellent leadership skills. When I was pregnant he was flexible with me, something that wasn't so common back then. To this day, I'm grateful to him for hiring me and training me exceptionally well. We had many good times even though the job was highly stressful due to the nature of this type of career. Sadly, I learned he passed away from cancer about 5 years ago, he wasn't that old.

    This was a very challenging read. Specifically from the Christian Faith perspective. We are entitled to our political opinions as we render unto Cesar. Unfortunately our spiritual opinions are much more defined within the faith. I am unaware of any person on earth who could cast a stone in any direction with first dropping it on their own toe.

    How did Jesus respond to the devil the three times within desert? Is this not a model for us?

    Brand Can Improve Your Odds of Getting HiredA friend called to complain about a hiring problem. She is a very powerful coach headquartered in Boston. Her complaint was about trying to hire a new assistant. There was no shortage of candidates. She got hundreds of resumes. That is where...

    #3 I have trained hiring managers and executives in 6 countries to improve their interviewing skills through competency-based behavioural interviewing skills. I have also helped major corporations staff entire departments. I did this by screening the resumes and conducting the initial (depth) behavioural interviews. I've seen my share of bad candidates and excellent ones. If an interviewer is encountering so many arrogant candidates with "attitude", it's a red flag to me and, usually, indicates more about the interviewer than the candidate. Of course, I don't know this individual. Perhaps she did run into a particularly bad batch of candidates. Based on the description, I would bet my bottom dollar that she is condescending and demanding and it would be difficult to work for her.

    These are great tips by your friend @Jerry Fletcher. I've talked to a lot of people that hire and my husband is one. It's amazing how many people show up un-prepared for an interview. Maybe Interviewing should be a required subject in HS and College, just like English is.

    @Anne 🐝 Thornley-Brown, MBA You know I didn't perceive the woman in the article the same way as you. A hiring manager has a very important job to do. It doesn't matter if she is the CEO. A good hiring manager would find a long term and qualified candidate. It's possible that she did get relatively dumb recruits. In the error of text messaging, watching youtube and not reading, and templates that virtually do all the work for you, it wouldn't surprise me if a lot of people are barely literate. Writing is a communication skill and so is speaking, not everyone is superb or even intermediate in these essential skills because they Netflix too much.

    Your friend sounds very demanding and difficult to work with. Certainly, there is no excuse for inappropriate dress, chewing gum during interviews, and not taking down a message properly. Some of her other complaints make it sound like she may be the one with the problem. I don't know her but, based on your description, she sounds condescending. I have often seen confidence described as arrogance by someone who perceives others as being beneath them. If out of hundreds of resumes she only found 2 who warranted callbacks, it may mean that she is being too picky. After all, she is hiring an assistant, not the CEO of the company.
