    Quite good @Andrew Berkowitz .. Enjoying this interview right now. Sandra Glasglow has a wealth of knowledge and its quite thrilling listening to her on Angel investing. This is a much needed support for the Caribbean region. There are informal investment backers in most islands but much more than money is needed - and that's form my own personal experience.

    @Aura Alex we are definitely some busy bees with entrepreneurial spirits! Great post.. you got me at "So, get “bee-sy”. Put your dukes up, ladies! Find your entrepreneurial spirit!" Women in business is another extension of what we do at home - we manage, create, and keep our families happy.. taking it outside is expanding and including some risk into the equation. I will add, I think men do have an advantage, but as women we can carve our place alongside our male counterparts. Unity is strength on any level. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for an excellent read, @Aura Alex. I find it perplexing that women represent over half of America's labor force but are still severely under-represented in leadership and management positions from Wall Street to Main Street. Hopefully, your astute advice will resonate and help more working women climb the corporate ladder to the C-Suite and beyond -- where they most certainly belong.

    Persistence is the key, isn't it? Doing it in spite of what I think, feel, and believe at the moment because 'it' is what has been identified as needing to be done to reach my goal. Imposter syndrome is alive and well in the female entrepreneur community and so far I've seen that the best cure is action - for each step taken a bit of confidence is gained.

    If you show that you like the way the company works, your boss and your boss's bosses will be happier to make you an important part of it. Also, get to know your co workers. If you seek to understand your co workers, you may avoid potential disagreements. Top managers know that the key to management is being a good listener and taking the time to understand the needs of the people around them.

    Thanks for sharing @Dr. Allen Brown ! It's a fraud attempt. We have investigated the issue and found out the scammer has already deleted his account in beBee. These people usually create a fake account, gather data for a few days and then delete the account.
    Unfortunately, this is very common in all social media. beBee has filters to detect this behaviour, but we can not detect all the cases.

    #14 @Aurorasa Sima tomorrow, as Americans pause and reflect in remembrance of the many lives lost on September 11, 2001, it also serves as a reminder that our nation has also been at war ever since. Wish I could tell you that the end is in sight. Sadly, it is not. What began as the horrific transformation of civilian aircraft to missiles that fateful day continues today with service men and women in perpetual pursuit of evil doers around the globe who still wish to inflict further harm on our citizenry. Only if they could get away with it. I will forever be grateful to have served in the company of a great many every day citizens with big hearts and above average courage.

    Yes, it´s possible. "I'm sorry that you had this traumatic experience" and everything else you could say just seem inappropriate and little when you are talking to someone who was right in the middle of this. It's different to read it from someone you are even vaguely acquainted with.

    I bet it wasn't easy to Open up and share this. I am glad that you did and I applaud you for the way you are handling the mental scars.

    #12 I admire that you are writing about combat @John Valledor and inserting truths even though it's hard and can feel all too real. I think if more people understand the realities of combat and what soldiers factually endure it is helpful (and respectful) to not only the families but those who have never served. I have a friend who is an Army Ranger and he told me stories about the Iraqi people that gave me not just a better understanding but much love for the people. Citizens don't choose war, they are innocent victims of the war and it affects our troops as much as it does the people who were maimed or killed. Our soldiers, as you've explained so well see the tragedies on both fronts. I can't thank you enough.

    #11 I do plan on writing more. Challenge for me is telling a story about war without crossing a line of shock. The men that I am writing about were real, they had lives, families, will be missed dearly for years to come. I want to tell their stories of courage so that their families can gain greater insight into their final days and hours. Still, combat is brutal and some may not appreciate the details of the passing of their loved ones. My goal is not to glorify combat, but to highlight the absurdity and sad waste to humanity this endeavor results. Like many, I grew up loving war movies--then I experienced combat personnally. War is horrific to both soldiers and non-combatants. Sadly, the consequences of these horrific experiences extend well beyond the battlefield. Thank you for having the courage to read my gritty account of a very, very long day in combat.

    #9 Lisa, thank for taking the time to read this rather long and sad narrative. Yes, indeed, letting my thoughts out in a story was very cathartic. I have many more to share that I'm compiling into a book. Still, don't think that because we experienced such horrors that we're in some way weak. We're not. The accounts of that brutal day and others far worse, actually made us more resilient to the Hobsian aspects of life. Not a day goes by where my children and friends often complain about how tough their life tribulations are--I remind them that as bad as their day might be it could be much, much worse. I tell them to put things in its proper context and perspective. So, I strive to focus on the positive aspects of my experience and those of other veterans like me. I actually love waking up each morning and thank God that I'm alive. You see, for me, surviving combat means that God has a higher purpose in store for me. My aim is to see it through and experience it. Again, thank you for taking the time to experience in words what brave men and women that walk amongst you experienced for real.

    @john Valledor Thank you so much for sharing this story. Your story must have been both difficult and cathartic to write? I won't pretend to imagine what all of you experienced over in Iraq but my heart broke when I read this. I can truly understand why you call each other brothers. Very interesting data on the hippocampus and amygdala. The studies make sense RE: panic attacks, anxiety and ole factory sensory. I would like to read more about these studies because I'm sure it can pertain to others who suffer from PTSD for reasons other than war. Vey courageous of you to write about this and share it with us. I used to watch Baghdad ER and it was heart wrenching. You sound like you were and are a very upstanding commander!

    #7 Paul, the truly obvious fact is that as one that has experienced war personally and at multiple times--I hate it to the very core of by soul. Still, having grown up in New York City and worked at the World Financial Center-across the former twin towers...the carnage and destruction from those cowardly 19 hijackers deserved payback! I will never have pity for the animals behind al Qaeda and ISIS. I am proud to have served in the company of brave men that paid the ultimate price to rid the world of a horrific mindset. The evil people behind ISIS cannot be reasoned with, to them death is a virtue. So, despite my deep and painful hatred for war, someone needs to do something to combat evil besides talk about it. Thank you for having the courage to read my buzz and for your honest feedback. You have my fullest respect.

This story, and more to follow, is an accounting of their valor and sacrifice. Again, thank you for reading and commenting on my sad story.

I find it quite incredible and admirable that after living this events you can share them with all details included, I could not be able to understand what you went through and sharing it is so amazing. Now I can understand how coaching and lots of therapy techniques came from the ones that therapists and other professionals create for the army and veterans, if it works for someone that went through this it has to work for anyone.

    Thanks for the comments guys - I totally respect your views.

    I have personally found more joy in prioritising my workload and being more 'productive' instead of just 'active'. Some people find it difficult distinguishing between the two. I think this was the point I was trying to describe in the #2 section.

    Some people would think that being an entrepreneur means being the owner of your day and having more time for yourself and family. I differ a little bit since there's more commitments that entrepreneurs have to take upon and more time need involved it them. Even though time is still yours regarding your life activities and decisions taking the one to start your own business is a big deal that we have to be ready for. I agree with Dean Owen on this one, we have to do them all since they're all part of one: yourself.

    Great advice. I will take #1 and #3 for sure, but never #2. Unless you are Gary V, I don't believe anyone's day is so full they can't do everything they need to do. No priorities, do them all!

    This was a very important post to read @Richard Scott so thanks for taking the time to write it and share it with us. Anxiety can be a silent killer especially in the freelancer/ entrepreneurial world and most people ignore it because of the fictitious amount of punches we have set that we are suppose to be able to dealing with during the course of life. Once again, thanks for writing this.

    #3 Thanks, @Lisa Lee. I always worry that I'm going to stick my foot in it with opinion pieces like this. But by keeping quiet it's condoning the behaviour. Glad you liked.

    You could not be more right @Andrea Luquesi Scott. Over the years I have been led along on 'collaborations' that saw little benefit to me but allot to the other party towards the end. Everyone wants the world from you but does not want to pay... Whats more everyone and their mother gets paid in advertising and far too often have I seen talented young designers, who have accumulated a serious debt sharpening their skills, only to be told it would be great 'experiance'. Ask these people handing out all the 'experiance' if they would work for free and you wouldn't get a reply to that email fullstop. Keep sharing these sorts of buzzes. It's important information! Thanks so much.

    @Andrea Luquesi Scott you couldn't me more right. This is a post full with true and autentique words I agree with everything you say. I would add that people that sell themselves up like "Joel" also contribute to devalue the job of all the competition.

    I would think it would be very stressful to be constantly bartering for business. I can understand if someone wants to help another, and the favor is returned. But, to have to wonder if you will get your next job/contract based on 'bartering' , well... that would become quite stressful.
