Comments23/01/2017 #33 Mohammed SultanAn integrated personal brand is a mix of the past and the future,of core skills and core interests.Core skills are always demonstrated by documents of past education and past experience.But how one can discover his or her core interests which is attached more with his or her passion?To reveal your core interests you need more reflection and a systematic way of thinking through what you know about yourself.Passion stems out of core interests that accumulates overtime from the moments in which you have done something different in the past.
Your personal and professional career can be enhanced through "integration" to form a personal brand image.Your personal brand image is your unique character that distinguish you from others and so must be protected before seeking new challenges with new risks.After the self-assessment of your core interests through looking into your past,be sure to recall and group them to organize your self-views into themes vision,mission,goals and values,then with every transition or stepping points look over these themes to see how they are still fitting into your personal and professional image in the future. Thank you @ Javier beBee for inspiring all bees with your mission.29/12/2016 #31 Szilvia BodaDear Javier, great to read such good articles. "Staying in the loop - Connecting with people that share the same personal and professional interests as you means more relevant and personalised content popping up on your news feed." I have a question. I have connected several investors offline and online but all of them are in the USA, Germany, France and Dubai. There is one man I wanna co-work: Won Yip (he has 5 cafés and a 1144m2 penthouse.) Reason I want to co-work with him, he lives in Holland. As freelancer I need to to find an investor who cover the costs of a law office (pattent - intelectuel rights). I have not only one product idea but 2-3 and does not matter how hard I work it is still high cost. Is there a special tip for female entrepreneurs how to find commun interest with a businessman who has wife and kids. Office hour is one thing but I am mostly online till 4AM. PS. I love tennis and table tennis. Anyone from Amsterdam?21/10/2016 #16 Michele WilliamsFabulous! The example of the job candidate for the car company is a great way to explain the value of beBee's integrated approach in the US. where the need for connection is high but there is much folk wisdom is about keeping work and life separate (segmentation). There is actually some interesting research on different preferences for segmentation in social media, by Nancy Rothbard and colleagues, that I will share that over the weekend. beBee may help people bridge the tensions between "bringing your whole self to work" and segmentation.21/10/2016 #12 Brian McKenzieCongrats on getting onto Virgin site! Sir Branson's interests are wide and varied; not just communications, space, travel and business development but racing, healthcare, fitness/wellness and protection of human rights. It is indeed interesting to know the secrets to connect the right 'who' to get things launched, created and funded.
