    @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.
    Excellent offering!

    Brilliant! You've given me wonderful food for thought about my negative perception of Kim Kardashian. I agree with you completely about Hillary Clinton, and I love the comparison of Hugh Hefner never being judged negatively in the same way that female business leaders and politicians are.
    Pamela L. Williams
    16/10/2016 #28 Pamela L. Williams
    I loved your perspective @Donna-Luisa Eversley. Though I empathize with Kim's robbery experience I just can't find her 'business' as having a positive impact on society or the young women of today, which to me is just as harmful to women as anything Hugh Hefner has done. Just because it's women getting rich from the exposure doesn't change the negative stereotype is places on all women.
    As for Hilary, that is one strong woman, of that there is no doubt, I'm just not sure she is Presidential material. But if I have to chose between her and DT, I'm Hilary all the way.

    Belated kudos on sharing that personal story @Donna-Luisa Eversley. I'm reminded of that old saying: what doesn't kill us makes us stronger. I think going through adversity and facing immense challenges -- while no fun at all -- does in fact strengthen people's character, determination and steadfastness.
    I recall at the last town hall presidential debate, the last questioner asked each candidate to say something they admired about the other. Donald Trump sounded sincere, at least in this instance, when he praised Hillary for being a fighter and never giving up. I think all her past challenging life experiences helped to mold Hillary into the person she is today. And ditto that for most, if not all, people.
    And while it's terrible what happened to KK in Paris, one would think she would have bodyguards to protect her in public when she flaunting very expensive jewelry while playing games on social media. But that's just my 2-cents.

    My dear @Donna-Luisa Eversley, I confess I saw this Producer a couple of days ago but, as @Pascal Derrien has said before, I was so silly I didn't feel any engagement with the title neither with the two pictures on the top.
    I simply can not imagine what you were through in that night you have described, as a mother I don´t feel strong enough to try to imagine it.
    Your article is full of sensibleness and sobriety, as well as of emotion. The same emotion any human being can feel, because as you wisely say none is inmune or set apart from humanity in a life or death experience.
    Thanks so much for tagging me. Love you, dear being. 💞

    wonderful post madam Donna-Luisa Eversley! absolutely stunning! i wonder, how state sometimes act as a male and sometimes as a female! we have seen number of states where female at the helm, but the character of state remain same. there is no absolute masculinity or feminism. still, i believe, female are more compassionate and caring, as they can only endow motherhood. however, lovely post madam. thank you very much for sharing the post.

    Excellent piece, @Donna-Luisa Eversley. What a chilling recall of your experience. I can't even begin to imagine what it must have been like, but you paint a vivid picture that speaks volumes to your own faith, strength and resilience. I am sad to hear that you went through something so terrifying, but it seems in spite of it all you have found the grace within. You have crated and penned such a well-written piece here and opened eyes so that we can see beyond the media hype. It can be challenging to dissect the authenticity that is often overshadowed by the propaganda. In the end, both women are human beings - and as you have so eloquently pointed out - there's more than what meets the eye.

    You have brought to light some interesting perspective with regard to both Kim K and Hillary Rodham-Clinton. While I may not necessarily agree with or be a fan of either, what I will openly acknowledge is their perseverance and resilience. It takes a great deal of tenacity to be a public figure and both women have demonstrated these traits under some dire and heated situations. And for that, I give them credit. It's not easy to be torn down and ridiculed at every turn but they fight back where some might never find the strength to get up and keep going.

    Thank you Donna-Luisa for leading me to this. I did miss it's original posting somehow.

    @Donna-Luisa Eversley, you just hit a homerun with this post. I agree with Pascal in that this is the best article I have read all week. I can't imagine how you endured the robbery but so glad you did or I wouldn't be reading this 5 star read. I am not a fan of Kim Kardashian but give her credit for making herself into a multi-million dollar empire. Hillary is a smart and gutsy woman and has endured a lot, as well. She seems to have the ability to bounce back and ready for the next hurdle. Women have come a long way and are making great strides but we still have a rocky ride ahead of us. It takes time and patience - and endurance to make the world a better place. Bravo Donna-Luisa and buzz on.

    I cannot imagine the trauma of being held at gunpoint. How horrific. Kim Kardashian - I have no idea who she is and had no idea she had been robbed. I empathize with Hillary for the fact that she had to deal very publically with a cheating husband. I have never thought "if Hillary was a man" but I have thought if Michael Moore looked like Robert Redford, he'd probably be heralded as an American icon. Weird world we live in.....

    #4 @Vincent Andrew thank you for understanding us women 😉...you have had the privilege to be surrounded by many females and you get to protect and love and care for all our hormones! The robbery was awful. I try not to think about it, and I guess I have not really laid it to rest. The feel of the gun remains, and my son is 29 next month. I was crazy about safety and security after that..sleeping lightly, keeping my home locked tightly day and night. Not opening windows, being obsessed with locks...took almost twenty years for me to relax. When one is robbed like that the physical things lost are nothing, it is the way your personal safety was violated, that, is a loss hard to recover from. 🐝🌸

    We were riding on his scooter one day, at may be 40kmph suddenly he'd just park the bike to the corner of the road and tell me "Fatima there's a hundred rupees note on the side of the pavement go pick it up , at first I thought he was joking but then we used to find money most of the time. It was like an adventure that only both of us shared. I'd be amazed everytime he was right about the amount. He had a very sharp eye sight,was a very generous human and I miss him alot.

    #18 A lot going on in that post, @Pamela L. Williams! My only comment is that, in life, you tend to go where you're aiming. If you are dominant in aiming for the "T" in SWOT, then that's where you will go. My other comment is that I equate "Threat" with fear and all that fear provides is motivation to move away from the source of fear/threat. On the other hand, "Opportunities" provide a compelling direction toward something like a goal or a destination. That's why I think that all 4 qualities are equally important in the SWOT analysis.
    Pamela L. Williams
    08/09/2016 #18 Pamela L. Williams
    I have worked with some great, and i mean great, strategists. I learned a lot from them and their ability to see the big picture. I have used much of what I learned in other positions and what I find is I'm the 'T' projector in SWOT. Some thought of it as being a nay sayer but I have found exploring the threats in depth you are prepared (much like those A & B plans for your flight). My grandfather used to tell me that people start every job high; excited, driven. But every job had its rough spots. Knowing that and having a plan to deal with them can change your own outlook and the outlook for the company. My two cents! Enjoyed this read, very interesting!

I work within the hierarchy of answering the WHY first, the WHAT second, and the HOW last. In America, we are excellent at figuring out HOW to do things, but when I ask groups what is the expected outcome, I often get another HOW. The first 2 hours of a planning session with a new group is often spent teaching them how to think in the hierarchy above. My favorite analogy to get them thinking in this new way is one I came up with working with a car dealership; "We provide transportation, to enable people to go to work or play, through the sales and service of cars and trucks." Thanks for your comments and insights!

    Interesting insight @Steven Marshall, thank you for sharing it. And to @Donna-Luisa Eversley, thank you for the shout out and pointing me to Steven's post. Steven, I agree with you that the only constant is change - and being able to adapt to it is a key component to being able to move forward - both professionally and personally. In my opinion, having a plan is always a good idea but I have been involved in many scenarios where there was no plan, and instead a spaghetti theory approach was applied; that is, throw it against the wall and see what sticks. Sometimes it worked and other times it failed. I can't help but wonder how the scenarios could have played out differently had a strategy been hatched. Thanks for the post!

    #57 To quote the Beatles: "I'll get by with a little help from my friends." This rant of yours, plus one that you inspired that I want to link to but can't find (It was titled "because that's the way we are" or something like that) led me to write my https://www.bebee.com/producer/@paul-croubalian/emulsification-racism-and-getting-along .

    I was also thinking about this post this morning. It's a quiet work day and I needed to think about stuff for my web-app-with-no-name.

    So I got to cooking.

    It's my father-in-law's 88th tomorrow, so I made his favs. I started with Jack Daniels infused orange marmalade. It will be served with homemade vanilla/Grand Marnier ice cream on puff pastry boats (now in the oven.)

    I have a big-assed batch of basil tomato sauce simmering away to use in the lasagna/cannelloni/manicotti (I haven't decided which yet, but the pasta dough is ready)

    I also made some tomato sherbert to use as ice cubes to keep the gazpacho cold. Did I mention the gazpacho?

    My condo has waves of various aromas. The marmalade mixed with tomato was getting to me. I opened the windows.

    That's when I saw Melissa, my neighbour. She was heading out.

    She told me she couldn't stand the smells anymore. Not that they were bad, but that they were making her hungry. She was off to a Weight Watchers' meeting.

    #55 WOW. I think I would have killed my kids (if I'd had any) if they referred to me as a 'white bitch'. What an awesome act, to move them to a whiter neighbourhood where they can learn to appreciate the other half of their DNA. You bring up a great point, which is that racism is ALWAYS wrong. Even when you're not white. 'Victimhood' isn't an excuse.

Thanks so much to all of you!

    #50 You can come over to my apartment building and rant about all the curry smells you can find...along with fried fish and Goddess knows what else. I live in an immigrant 'hood in Toronto (and I'm an immigrant myself) and the halls are always filled with food smells. But my reaction is usually, "Oh please, invite me in for dinner!"

    I used to live in a neighbourhood which was filled with immigrants from China, Pakistan, India and a handful of Middle Eastern countries (i.e., people who might consider themselves brown). My children are mixed race so they are not as fair skinned as me. One day I discovered some things they had written where they referred to me as "that white bitch". Not long after, we moved to a whiter neighbourhood because I was not going to have my children grow up to be racists and believing they were separate and different from me. Comedian Russell Peters in his routine called, Red White and Brown, commented that brown people were more racist that white people. I have to think there must be some truth to that. Having said that, a spoiled brat is a spoiled brat and all university students go through an adjustment period having to learn to live with strangers. C'est 'tough shit' et c'est la vie!

I think the next time I stay at an all suites hotel I will scream about my privilege when I smell curry in the halls ;-) Or maybe I should call the news the next time my neighbor has their fire pit smoking and the smoke is entering my bedroom window because darnit, I'm privileged! LOL. So many big issues going on, many of which we never hear about from the media- I find a lot of real news online from independent journalists. I can't believe that TV channel actually aired her complaint. Oh and by the way, that toy I never received from Santa years ago, well I'm still angry about that, I deserved it ;-)

    #3 What's wrong with beach? Or beech? What have you got against lovely seashores and nut trees, Margaret? :) Dunno, all skin colour is is amount of melanin - AFAIK, originally evolved to help protect against the sun's rays! Then some folks moved out of Africa and up into the Fertile Crescent and the continent one day to be known as Europe and then they settled in some very cold places with little sun and they didn't need that melanin. White skin soaks up the Vitamin D which is less plentiful when you live in Norway...It amazes me that human beings share *99.5%* of our DNA with each other...and yet that half-percent accounts for such noticeable differences...that we think make a lick of difference...and consider how there's only 3.5% diff between us and our closest cousins, the Trumpanzees...er, I mean Chimpanzees :)

    Aleta Curry
    02/09/2016 #2 Aleta Curry
    I do like the succinct list of questions. I don't think they all have the same weight, but they're all good to ask. I'm not sure I agree with the concluding sentence, in that you don't always know what will work at the beginning, and some serious marketing disasters by 'the Big Guys' or perhaps more accurately by their Ad Agencies, illustrate that. Sometimes, even after asking the important questions, you still have to use the old Trial and Error.

    your lovely insight instigate to ponder an alarming issue being prominent in my country, India, where bees are being dispensed from one region to other region in boxes where they can introduce the business of honey and make sizable profit, keeping the peoples economy at stake who are traditionally engaged in honey exporting business. besides, shifting of honey business by transporting bees are directly affecting the overall agricultural economy of the concern place, as the cross pollination and pollination by bees will be inevitably affect the other agricultural produces. so, i guess, being intoducing by number of do's and don'ts will intimidate the new bees to produce buzzes.

    10 Reasons why Social Media may not be working for your small business! I think this would have made a better title dear Lance ;) Right now it reads like a statement that states social media doesn't work for small businesses.That aside, yes indeed to all your observations. Some are the very basics that need to be established before campaigning begins.Great checklist in there! The smartphone is the newspaper, the TV, the Radio and the Internet all rolled into one right now. No sayin it! Thanks for sharing :)

    Good Stuff Lance. The trouble that most businesses have with social media is that they really aren't willing to make the investment in professional communications. That and the fact that they don't really understand how it all works or, as you pointed out, how long it takes to build their brand online. Thanks. You should consider joining the All Business hive and posting this there. https://www.bebee.com/group/all-business

    #1 Same here, right @David B. Grinberg? This is awesome ~ one question, @Lance Scoular: How would/could one sell a book through one's own 'beBee website? Refer offsite? Because, specifically, there is no place to have a "Store." I would like to see the addition of "Store" capability ~ I think that would set us apart. @Franci Eugenia Hoffman, @Lisa Gallagher, @Ali Anani, PhD., @Dean Owen, @John White, @Juan Imaz. I also want to see a beBee Publishing House...and I realize I always come up with ideas before my time. ;-). SO, food for thought!

    #23 Thanks for your comment @debasish majumder. I won't attempt to challenge Plato on what he said, but my conclusion in relating his words to today's circumstances, is that often in business, people use buzz phrases and language they do not fully understand themselves, in an attempt to impress other people. The point here is that clear communication should be the priority, not trying to impress others.

    Plato was gifted with the knowledge of two philosophers who immediately preceded him: Socrates and Aristotle. The latter was the tutor of Socrates and Plato was the student of Socrates. He grew under the tutelage of Socrates, no doubt about that, but he had his own great thinking and philosophy. All his teachings are worth paying heed. Thanks for sharing this post, Cory.

    Many, entirely too many, of the incidents and episodes of violence that you mention early in your post were and continue to be engineered for a purely malevolent Pavlovian response. Create the Chaos - Add fuel and Fire - Let it escalate and fester - and then come to the 'rescue' of the situation they covertly created. Where is the faith and trust in men ? - meh; it is certainly ill placed with politicians, cronies, bankers, international organizations, military and news media - I trust none of them but to serve their own divisive agendas and pocketbooks - and when you see the game for what it is; and how big it is, it can never be unseen - I am content to let it all burn.

    #40 I was thinking a few times about why I perceive FB as a downer. A contributor for the "negativity" might be that the pages that post most often don´t produce articles but use memes for the largest part. The visuals have to be aggressive to stand out and ensure visibility and interaction. The same applied to my connections. You just don´t have 40 unique, clever things to say, I guess. Hahaha, you like McRib? Well, I am not for telling people what to do. Just for spreading truthful information, so that everyone can make an educated decision. If you´d still want to eat Mc (in Germany they lovingly say Mäcces) and later party with your ulcer, I´d be glad to help choose which color party hat to swallow.

    I limit my contacts on Facebook to the (very few) groups of which I am a part. I consider the news a bunch of drivel that's marketed only to the people who share the same views as the "journalist".
    Truth often has only one viewpoint, therefore "fair & balanced" + "news" is, at best, an oxymoron.
    Oh, by the way, the McRib sandwich is a GOOD thing!!!! (yes...I know that it made my ulcer bleed, & put me off work for a month, but that was somehow my fault...give me time , I'll think of an ex...uh, reason.)

    #38 Hi Lisa, nice to meet you (: Yes, we are constantly being manipulated with numbers that lack reference. 8 out of 10 clients would recommend it. How many did you ask? How short after the buy? Did you ask them at the cash register? It´s still terrible. But one must also have the positivity and faith to keep on pushing for change.

    Aurorasa, I liked your article. I think that many members of the press throw numbers at up without any relevance. It's often 20% of these children, but they never give us the quantifying number they are using to reach this 20% and try to make us feel that the world is doomed. I don't believe that at all and I really wish they wouldn't throw out statistics that will incite anger an negativity in people with the baseline they used to arrive at this number.

    You know I'm tired and I am having this discussion with myself that I have to shut down this $#%& computer and get some sleep. Well, I saw your article and so glad I did. Your post is encouraging but not in a way that should appeal to a Chamber of Commerce - meaning no blah and a lot of matter of fact ideas. Thanks for a great end of the night nightcap.

    #32 When I was little I saw a docu on tv that showed the impact of one droplet of water raining on the ocean.

    #31 I agree. I´d probably also not be interested to read: "The 23 cities where it did not rain today" or "John Tucker ate a lovely dinner with his wife."

    The most positive interpretation would probably be: Good is the norm. Ergo: only bad things are "news"

    Well said. To all who want to be the droplets that cause the ripples of positivity and positive change.

    "We know more and understand less. We know everything really fast, every detail in live ticker mode - but we cannot comprehend the complexity." That kinda nails it for me @Aurorasa Sima. I thing the biggest issue surrounding your thesis is that the media who broadcast all the news are mired in the anachronistic belief that bad news is just plain more exiting than good news. These people are predators with a vested interest in keeping people in a constant state of fear. They take advantage of the axiom illustrated in your quote and the net result is that people carry around more doom and gloom than optimism.
