- Producer23/10/2016The Shifting Tide - Episode 9Welcome to the continuing fictional saga about the life of a young female Indian warrior. This is the next to the last episode and I hope this will explain a lot of what has occurred in the other episodes. As I have written at the beginning...

I agree with @Chas Wyatt, you're a very gifted story teller @Pamela L. Williams Close24/10/2016 #5 David B. Grinberg#4 My pleasure, Pamela. Kudos to you on such exemplary fiction writing, which can be time consuming, laborious and a "slow burn" -- at least based on my own personal experience. And, yes, I shared your "sweet honey" in three hives. Keep buzzing onward and upward!23/10/2016 #3 Pamela L. Williams#2 don't you want to wait for the final chapter. It may take me a while. This one was actually rough to write, sometimes, despite all your 'plans' it's hard to make it happen. But read at will Dear Deb. I just want people to enjoy it...well sort of since that's a strange thing to say after this episode.

Smart employers recognize the importance of employee engagement, and what better way to engage than to let them know how their involvement in recruiting is win-win for their bottom line.#3 Thank you, Erroll!#1 I appreciate that, Jared Wiese!23/10/2016 #2 Donna-Luisa Eversley@Lynda Spiegel quite a good article with very relevant observations. I like how you explained how employees can be an asset to HR and the organization... It helps to validates a culture when folks recommend their company as an employer.
Great post... Thanks for sharing 😊

Comments23/10/2016 #37 Savvy RajSo much to endearing names to address a father . At home it is a Daddy for my daughter and in front of her friends it is shortened Dad and then of course in formal situations when she is speaking about him it is father . But generally in India a lot of children in the south call their father 'Appa'. Loved reading this one @Dean.22/10/2016 #29 Dean Owen#20 do you like your knees lol 😬. That was an IRA tactic if I recall rightly. I remember delivering a girl back to her parents in the morning after swatting for exams the whole night. Her boisterous father was standing by the road waiting. As soon as I turned up in my Renault 5 he came storming toward us, fist in the air. Naturally I chickened out and drove off...I was a wimpy teen.22/10/2016 #26 Paul Walters@Dean Owen After two girls doing exactly the same thing I can sympathise ...It kinda hurts. However I can assure you that during teenage years when something is desired ( a night out during school week or something expensive) the moniker "daddy' will be re employed and I tell you what, it works every time .22/10/2016 #22 Gert Scholtz@Dean Owen I have looked after our two children many times when my wife was away and to singe parents I can only echo: Great Respect! The first commanding "Dad" becomes a call with many intonations - can I have something, why did you say this, endearment, where are you - many more. The photo is so poignant - makes one long for the days when it was "Daddy" . Great post - thanks Dean.22/10/2016 #20 Pascal DerrienI would have been concerned if she had said ''Dad can I have A yogurty''..... I agree with the 18 threshold, as far as my daughter is concerned her brother and I are perfecting interview techniques for potential boyfriends first question being do you like your knees.... nice light hearted take on time going by...Nice one @Dean Owen

Comments23/10/2016 #46 Don Kerr#1 In fact, beBee rather than a bridge is its own unique roadway. The metaphor does work however and I applaud you for being so direct about the vision for the platform. I am also still gobsmacked by the degree of participation you and your senior team have here. It is unprecedented in my experience and can, if sustained, be a valuable difference-maker. Sharing.22/10/2016 #38 Phil Friedman#26 Thank you, Gerald, for the sour out. You are spot on. As Javier says, there is room for all on beBee, to socialize or engage intellectually, to goof around or be serious. That is why strictly quantitative comparisons between beBee and other platforms is misleading and self-defeating. If it were up to me, I would emphasize, again as Javier does, the "richness" of the platform, and the ability to tailor a personal niche to meet your needs, tastes, and objectives. Cheers!22/10/2016 #36 SUSHIL KUMARThanks Javier to making us understand the differences among these three social media platforms.
Yes, you are very true initially I put my profile in LinkedIn for jobs and seldom used it. After advent of its feature pulse we started using regularly and loved it very well.
Truly it is very irritating, when they limited notifications and showed that their interest is different from ours.
We are in search of another platforms whose interests is aligned with ours and finally,we are on bebee to find great writers.

Comments22/10/2016 #8 CityVP ManjitWe can become so enamored with technique that we can lose the connection between storytelling and human spirit, and this buzz brings that human connection back into sharp focus. It is not that we must incorporate storytelling in our speech, but that first we rekindle the art of storytelling as storytellers ourselves. Storytelling as content marketing is a very different proposition to storytelling as a personal flow. Modern marketing has turned us into a society of manipulators looking for some form of advantage in the war for attention, whereas connection reminds us that storytelling is something that comes from our communal response than a marketing response. Young people are getting smarter than Gen X and Boomers in this regard, they can smell a spin or an attempt to market us with storytelling, and a storyteller who is first focused on being in flow with narrative.22/10/2016 #5 Susan Rooks@Paul Kearley, you know you're right and so do we! Stories are what we remember.
I've been a presenter for more than 20 years, and even when teaching such exciting topics as American grammar, I use stories and humor. And I also do not use PowerPoint or any other electronic media. Because I'm teaching a specific skill, I do give out workbooks, but I still include stories and humor, mainly to keep my students awake.
Great post, and thanks!21/10/2016 #4 Harvey LloydGreat post @Paul Kearley. Amy Cuddy was a great Ted Talk. Engaging folks is different today. They truly want to experience what you have, when they commit to your organization. With no story to present today's employees feel lost. I am a deeply pragmatic person. Storytelling is a skill i am trying to develop. Funny at times.21/10/2016 #3 David B. GrinbergThanks for sharing this "sweet honey" Paul. You are absolutely correct that effective presentations and speeches are often based on great storytelling, at least in part. This is because people can relate to stories which exemplify the human condition and spirit. Thanks for the excellent advice. Buzz on, my friend!

Comments22/10/2016 #16 debasish majumder#15 usually i deliberately refrain from making any counter comment, but madam @Fatima Williams, your appreciation and warm support to me of immense value, precisely the way you uphold the nuances of the paramountcy and accountability of comment in digital media, surely deserves unconditional respect, which i only can offer to you. thank you very much madam for your valued comment.22/10/2016 #15 Fatima Williams@debasish majumder You have shown us what a humble person you are, from the day I''ve known you and I'''m glad you shared this with us. We all stand by you and always will. Negativity has to uprooted from it's core and a seed of positivity like this buzz has to be planted there.22/10/2016 #12 Deb Helfrich"Should we not be more accountable to our attitude and inclinations?" The answer is a resounding YES! And what makes beBee different is that we can, as a community, openly address when conversations go awry and not feel that expressing confusion or hurt will bring on more attacks.
There are bound to be misunderstandings and strong differences of opinion - but I will do everything I can to provide an example of someone willing to respect every voice, and encourage every type of participation that is not directly meant to hurt someone else. Let's all type in harmony!22/10/2016 #9 Harvey LloydYour post has brought forth a serious topic of our society @debasish majumder. Your feedback opened up some fear the writer had within your post. The comment then raised a fear that you have, social negativity maybe. We are human and to what extent, we are or should be, above reading and responding from our own personal fears. Should i decide to respond, i try to respond to their perspective. Writers typically write a positive/negative focused post/comment on their fears. I use the word fear broadly here. You could replace it with concern, belief or position.
Social media for me is the giant stadium full of folks at a ball game. In the past we heard the noise of the stadium as background noise. Now with social media we don't hear background noise we here every voice distinctively, but not consistantly. Unfortunately the person all the way across the stadium makes a very verbose statement. I didn't get to hear the context leading up to the statement. Was it something they heard in my statement or a general response to bit and pieces of a multitude of statements.
I share your sentiments of the seemingly endless attacks of character from refined humans. Education does not necessarily mean one is human in their endeavors. In your specific situation i would typically ask for context of the statement. Ask the commentor to express their rational for the word choice. Upon reading their response you can then carry the thread in one of two directions. Explain/discuss the misunderstanding or politely kick the pillars from underneath the high and mighty arrogance. The third alternative is to just walk away and allow the individual to bask in their self made perfection while you know others are witnessing the same thing your are, an empty suit.22/10/2016 #6 Lada Prkic@debasish majumder, after reading your post I was really intriguing to find the comment you were talking about. I was surfing through your Producer profile and found the post and the comment. I really don't know what to say. At first I was confused as Deb, because the first comments of that person look like they were answers to someone else's post. But the last comment about eunuch poem is obviously related to your post in which you celebrating your ambassadorship.
I admire how you managed to restrain from making any reaction to his comment, but I also ask myself how a person who have been nominated to be a beBee ambassador can make such comment. You can't force anyone to apologize to you, but your post is a great way to tell that person to think over his words.22/10/2016 #4 Lisa GallagherI'm sorry your feelings were hurt @debasish majumder. I did hear there were technical glitches and this person was trying to post to his own buzz but his comments were appearing on other's buzzes like yours. I would hope even though it was a glitch from what I heard, he may come back and at least tell you himself. That would be the kind thing to do. Keep on buzzing, so many benefit from your insightful and beautiful buzzes. Please know, you have many friends!!21/10/2016 #3 debasish majumder#2 madam @Deb Helfrich i am extremely honored and privileged for you excellent sense of humility, which, i guess, not only deserve veneration from me, but to all who are in this platform. thank you very much to understand my affliction, owing to an unsolicited remarks, which has embarrassed and disheartened me a lot. but, a balm like personality you possess is truly awesome! Thank you a lot madam.21/10/2016 #2 Deb Helfrich@debasish majumder - I was there, as you know, and just as equally confused. There was an actual technical bug which produced some bizarre results. And it was these results that brought comments to your post that were not actually in response to your excellent poem celebrating your ambassadorship. I applaud you for writing this as a way to understand, perhaps clear the air, and give others a reason to examine if they are representing themselves in a manner that translates worldwide with clarity.

TonyTony Delorto Unfollow22/10/2016 #12 jesse kaellisI'm a much better driver now, Donna-Luisa. I'm never impaired for one thing. When you pick up certain kinds of traffic violations you can reduce the points by going to traffic school. You still have to pay for school but the points are removed from your driving record.
Every time the instructor would walk into the room he would look at me and do a double take. Because I was in there every year. You can only do traffic school once a year or I would have been in there twice a year. Or more.
One time, this was in California, I'm in traffic school, this is after I moved away from Vegas and was working as a process server -- anyhow the instructor asks, "Has anybody here ever been in an accident." "I have, lot's of them." There is a hush over the room. A kid asks me, "Which way are you goint when you're leaving here?"03/10/2016 #8 jesse kaellis#7
The real takeaway is that I am a lousy driver and I should have remembered that. It's not like I didn't know. You don't ever blow through a stale yellow light because when I hit the Hyundai the light was red. I was driving too fast and at the moment that I hit the light my computer started flashing and I looked down. Bad news altogether.03/10/2016 #5 jesse kaellis#4
Thank you, Charlie. The ending has to stand because that IS the ending. I think I went back to school and took bakery. And ended up managing a small wholesale bakery. I posted a story about that before. The reflection? There isn't any easy money in LA, and if you don't have credentials you are going to end up scratching for a living at the bottom where there is plenty of competition.03/10/2016 #3 jesse kaellis#2
Thanks, John. I figure the cab deal would have brought in about $30,000 a year. But you HAVE to put in 12 hours a day, so it's like having a full-time and a part-time job. As I said, a hard dollar. I can see burning out on it. I talked to one longtime driver who routinely slept four hours a night. Between shifts.
In the three days, that I drove I got a lot of women who were taking groceries home. I'd help carry the bags in. What the hell. Short trips for a two dollar tip. They didn't have any money; they were on welfare. I never picked up one person who wasn't black, although it was only three days. I had one young lady taking me here there and everywhere. I took what money she had at the end. It wasn't enough to cover the meter.
LA would be far different from driving in a compact city like NY.

Comments22/10/2016 #3 Donna-Luisa Eversley@Nissar Ahamed...very Inspiring . I like the way you channel the things one likes, positive attributes and selecting a career path. Recently I've been speaking with my daughter...she spent a lot of her academic time in primary and high school on the sciences, and thought she wanted and should pursue medicine or chemistry type career, as she is quite good in subject areas. She started university and not long after realised she did not like it at all. Thankfully she caught this in time. She likes human resources, problem solving and negotiation...which she discovered by taking a break from studies.( Currently ). These decisions are not cast in stone, but selecting a career requires a lot of thought and understanding of oneself.

Comments22/10/2016 #19 Joel AndersonMaybe, it is more about our search for enlightenment and grasping coexistence for the betterment of all through a compassion for One Earth. As David Brower opined in "Let the Mountains Talk, Let the Rivers Run" maybe we need to re-look and/or look differently at conservation, preservation and restoration. Perpetuating the clown like approach, although on the surface it may be humorous, in reality the comedy unfolding isn't working despite all the international proclamations, back slapping and clown like buffoonery.22/10/2016 #18 Joel AndersonThank you all. Sharing a response I provided to a comment on the ying and yang article from someone on the other social media site. "... I do not disagree that this is a tough nut to crack. I kind of look at some of this in the perspective of duality. On the one hand, at a macro level we live on what has been referred to as the "Blue" Planet. If I look at it from space, I would simply opine that it is specifically unique amongst all the other known things in our universe. In that context, it and it alone does what it does like no other. On the other hand, at the micro level there are a myriad of minuscule little things that exists in their own little domains and niche areas. They do what they do regardless of whether they are natural or manmade. My point is less about globalization, although in some respects that needs to remain a perspective. Rather I just think we need to think and act differently--at whatever scale, whatever level about the fact that our 'One Earth" is truly is the only little one we have. That "One Earth" however large or small it may be may just be an important thing, whether we approach it individually or collectively. After 120 years of recent history, discussion and debate I am more concerned about our ability to perfect the mindless perpetuation of plausible deniability. An ability that seems content on perfecting the art of ignoring our individual actions because we can only influence what we can influence and control at our level(s). I just don't think that that is proving to be an effective or beneficial approach. Somehow, someway, someday we may just have to figure this out, as the Black Swans of our future are out there. How and/or if we can navigate them will yet be seen. I just think we can do better--individually and collectively..."22/10/2016 #16 Donna-Luisa Eversley@Joel Anderson wow, what a passionate sharing..."In putting on our clown faces I wonder if it somehow makes us feel better about contributing to or passively watching us destroy our earth, "...I have to agree that there is quite a bit of 'lip service" and not enough action as it relates to the world ecosystems and environment. We all have a part to play in the earth's destruction, either directly or indirectly, and should take responsibility to make changes which will help in stopping the damage. Environmental issues mean we need more involvement in laws and policies in our local domain which affect or impact on climate change and its ripple down effect.
Great post ...thanks again🐝04/10/2016 #15 Joel Anderson#12 Thanks and much appreciated. Must be a clown like conspiracy where on every issue, every topic, every opinion we find ourselves confronted with absolute bonafide and irrefutable fact of events occurring; disinformation; conspiracy theories, misinformation and absolute bonafide and irrefutable facts of nothing happening. My point was not on the story, nor the picture for that matter--but they may just serve the subject of the article well, then again may have been a distraction. My point was actually on the circus/carnival that we all seem content in dressing up for and playing at. Somewhere, somehow we need to get past the polarized extremes on every side of the issue and find some middle ground regardless of whether something is man made or natural.04/10/2016 #12 Karl Hodtwalkerhttp://www.defensetech.org/2011/03/12/noaa-map-of-japanese-tsunami-wave-height/?mobile=1
That is NOT an image of the Fukushima radiation leak. It's a height map of the tsunami in 2011. It's even got a color coding chart labeled in CM.
The second image is of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, NOT "Radioactive Debris from Fukushima approaching North America’s western coast" as claimed by RT, also known as Russia Today.
The image of the dead starfish originally comes from articles about this event:
So, what part of "ignoring reality despite the ramifications" does intentionally perpetuating misinformation and scare memes fall into? Close03/10/2016 #9 Joel Anderson#7 Thanks @Phillip Hubbell and thanks for the connection. Agreed, and in discussing and disagreeing the real issue becomes one of allowing for dialogue while concurrently driving towards ultimate solutions not polarized stalemate. Not a lecture, but in the ONE EARTH piece, I merely opine that after 120 years of debate on the topic, might we be able to figure this thing out at any level?03/10/2016 #7 Phillip HubbellI can tell you a little bit about the why? And the responses I get will most likely verify my reasoning. People are concerned with a lot of things in their lives and unfortunately a lot of the answers being promoted as solutions to the big things we see in media don’t resonant. People worry about money, taxes, health (here and now), personal relationships and the economic future. The opinion of a lot of people is that a lot of their problems and the problems of the world are ongoing despite or in spite of the efforts of people in powerful positions. All the solutions being offered for the coming and ongoing global catastrophe involve turning over more power to the same people who haven’t really solved any of the other problems. It is a credibility issue. Perhaps if every answer wasn’t more government and higher taxes, people might be more willing to listen. Humans, if anything, are innovative. Concentrating more power in a central authority isn’t innovative, it is familiar and the outcomes are predictable. One additional thing comes from the attitude that disagreement equals stupidity or ill will. If those who want something done in a plural society demand total agreement, or else, odds are good that what will ensue is conflict…not resolution. Often as not, in this particular area, what is asked for is not a discussion, but a lecture. People hate that.03/10/2016 #5 Joel Anderson#1 Kevin, A challenge for me in writing and please understand that this is not a plea or attempt and expanding my reach or readership. I don't have a huge followership, here or elsewhere. I write because I have a passion for this and any number of other topics of interest. I am not a PhD. I am not a scientist. I am just one person who writes because I feel compelled to do so, regardless of reach. I do not write to submit to blind, double blind or triple blind reviews to and for prestigious journals and to bolster my resume/vita. I just don't have that kind of mojo. Now, if we as simpletons, could only influence the brilliant minds in Marraakech to get beyond the logjam of rhetoric and back slapping, we might be getting somewhere. Despite the unlikelihood of that I will say this though, it is in writing and getting responses and thoughtful dialogue from all of those like you on this site, simple folks from around the world that share an affinity towards any given subject, it is satisfying none-the-less. So with that, all I will say is Thank You. Keep making a difference, one step-one issue-one challenge at a time.03/10/2016 #1 Kevin PashukI found your post interesting Joel... but I'm more and more convinced that if you want a deep conversation on important issues, then social media may not be the best forum.

Grinberg "worker bees show admirable teamwork in building their hives" versus, the prevailing "me, me'me" shadow side of human nature presenting itself in much social media. - great observation David. I am feeling increasingly enriched using nature metaphors, it is a constant reminder that we are nature. That has inspired me to remember the great work of Janine Benyus and Biomimicry - I will write a post! Thanks David.20/10/2016 #6 David B. GrinbergKudos for a very buzz-worthy read @Deb Lange. In addition to the fundamental beauty of nature exemplified by bees, I would also point out that bees are hard workers (worker bees) and show admirable teamwork and selfless fortitude in building their hives.
Thus, in a social media environment that is too often self-focused with a "me, me, me" feel, it's great to be part of a social platform that prides itself on more profound and praiseworthy principles.

Comments21/10/2016 #23 Andrew Porter#16 Nicely put Pamela, I was trying to think of what the hive was called and just couldn't remember, just a thought but it may be an idea to have a link for any newbee's that they could see easily which would help them along on their journey on beBee.
I would also like to say thanks to all who have greeted Claire so openly! Wouldn't it be great if every newbee got this reception. How would that be for beBee's promotion in the world of social media, word would soon get around!
Because I cannot name another social media platform where one gets a welcome like a beBee welcome!
Have a great weekend all!21/10/2016 #16 Pamela L. WilliamsWelcome Claire! Happy to have you in the hives! Thanks Andrew for introducing Claire to the colony. As Andrew stated; Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. May I suggest that one of your first hives be the Cheat Sheet hive. There are some great posts in there for navigating the site.

Pirates and Bees it seems.If asked what inspires me, I am not sure "pirates" would have come to mind, but it seems for Scott Leckie the principal at Takota Asset Management, they do; after watching his video, I now have a better understanding as to why. I couldn't help but...
Comments19/10/2016 #3 Lisa GallagherVery nice and excuse the pun, inspiring @Graham Edwards! For some reason this made me think of the ocean... when I am to sit near the ocean listening to the waves crash, my worries leave me and so many inspiring thoughts come to mind. I'm also very fortunate to be surrounded by many inspiring people who are also compassionate as well. Congratulations again Graham on becoming an Ambassador and your right, the leadership on this platform truly leads and inspires.18/10/2016 #1 Renée CormierI am very happy to have you working with the ambassadors at beBee. I can honestly say that the conversations we have around business inspire me and the other bees here on beBee do as well. Other things that inspire me are possibility, sunshine and if I look carefully enough, I find inspiration in life itself.

Comments18/10/2016 #10 Andrew PorterThank you @Alexa Steele, @Pamela L. Williams, @Donna-Luisa Eversley, @debasish majumder for all your appreciative comments I am pleased you all enjoyed this post about teasel.
Nearly caught you out with this Donna!
Pamela I'm not sure about that title, although it does come across quite well!17/10/2016 #3 Franci Eugenia HoffmanThis is very interesting @Andrew Porter, and thank you for writing a post on Teasels. The flowering Teasel is quite pretty and looks more delicate than those without the dainty little blooms. And how fun you can make things with them.
Measles and weasels give me the queasles
but, they don't dare come my way
when I'm armed with my Teasels
It's going to be a good day!

Comments18/10/2016 #5 Donna-Luisa Eversley@debasish majumder , "We were familiar with humility, not humiliation and always an unspeakable joy we were engulfed with, despite we faced numerous constraints. " Growing up was a phase of learning and finding ourselves. In finding yourself you had to let go to move forward, but the rear view mirror is always there as a reminder not to forget our roots. You may not have remembered him in the other developing phases of your journey, but at the time when he needed you to remember you did. You went back. I'd like to think ( even telepathy) your spirit was in tune with his own, and he needed you to make that journey then not before. There would have been great joy for him in having been friends with you in youth. He would have memories to take him through the years without the riches, but do not think he was lost without your wealth. It takes a great man, and a great love to return, when he probably needed the help for his family - that is the honor in love , to give when we do not get the comfort of thanks.
I appreciate this post and sharing my friend.

Comments15/10/2016 #2 Ken BoddieThe food in Dunkin' Donuts and Taco Bell seems obvious, Susan, but the name of the vendor doesn't always deliver on its promise. While in transit in Bali airport with my wife, on route to Java a few years back, the new terminal buildings were under construction and the choice of food vendors was very limited. We therefore decided to pop into KFC, only to be told, half apologetically, "Sorry, but we don't have any chicken". Now, every time we drive passed a KFC restaurant, we can't resist shouting out, from the sanctuary of the car, "Have you got any chicken?" followed by peels of laughter. Presumably, by now, the Colonel has re-worked his secret recipe for Kentucky Fried Cheese?

Comments18/10/2016 #4 Harvey LloydHere recently i have seen many pictures, quotes and books on the topic of leadership. They are focusing on the loneliness, or pioneer or greater good concepts that leaders must engage. Who you are in crisis is truly who you are. We can be anybody within the success envelope. There is no risk.
In my early years of leadership within a small business i remember the sleepless nights pondering success when it was so elusive. I used this frustration to try and motivate the troops. I found quickly they didn't really care, they too were having their own sleepless nights.
A few years of this lead me to the thoughts that the choice to lead was mine, not theirs. With this new understanding i realized my battles of leadership were on a different battlefield. If my team were to fully understand the battlefield and join me completely, they would become my competitor, eventually.
Leadership is about growing into uncharted territory of your own mind. You may posses skills, but courage can be elusive if you don't claim your choice to lead. I would also state that on many occasions i have chosen not to lead. There is dishonor in choosing not to lead. It is a sign of wisdom. Dishonor comes when we chose to lead and not develop the courage to honor our commitments.
@John Whitehead you speak truth in leading others. If you chose to lead then bring on the armor of leadership and lead well.18/10/2016 #3 Donna-Luisa Eversley@John Whitehead this is an area of personal development which requires a lot of conscious focus. I recall as I started my journey as a business owner my assumption that I could handle anything was tested almost from the 'get go'. The days were long, and the resistance and challenges were constant. Yes there were many wins, and happy times, but sometimes the shadow of a developing stressful life would feel over whelming. Thus, I started to walk daily. Early in the morning I would rise, get my sweats on, and armed with worship music, I would get to a large savannah field and walk. There were other walkers / runners there, but as early as 4am there would be 3 or 4 persons, and the it was safe. I would smell the air and the changes from night to day, and listen, pray, meditate. My last thoughts before finishing up this hourly ritual would be the day's events and how I would meet expected hurdles. I was actively disarming stress before it took hold and it helped.
This post has nudged a reminder.. thanks @John Whitehead15/10/2016 #1 mohammed khalafAs an entrepreneur, you may feel it takes too much effort to get results. To succeed you need to have the right systems and methods in place. If you are pursuing wrong strategies that won’t help you. However, if you are persistent in learning and improving, you’ll succeed. Be persistent in getting up each time you get off track
