Comments19/02/2017 #25 Preston 🐝 Vander Ven#20 Interesting story, my first mentor would not give me any of his personal time until I first read both those books and one other. He said I could also learn from him from at group socials. Yet, "Think and Grow Rich" and "How to Win Friends and Influence People" and finally "Rich Dad, Poor Dad' by Robert Kiyosaki were the books we ask for my to read to earn his personal time. After I did, I understood why.18/02/2017 #13 Lance 🐝 Scoular🐝Firstly Lance, I congratulate your parents for bestowing you with such a great given name.😆
🐝Secondly, your Almost Buzz reminds me of the Introduction Chapter of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.
He tells the story of how an uncle of R. U. Darby was caught by the “gold fever” in the goldrush days, and went west to DIG AND GROW RICH. He found a gold vein in Colorardo, enticed some investors for the required machinery and inspired Darby to join him at the mine.
To quote the “ALMOST” from the book…
“The uncle and Darby went back to work the mine. The first car of ore was mined, and shipped to a smelter. The returns proved they had one of the richest mines in Colorado! A few more cars of that ore would clear the debts. Then would come the big killing in profits.
Down went the drills! Up went the hopes of Darby and Uncle! Then
something happened! The vein of gold ore disappeared! They had come
to the end of the rainbow, and the pot of gold was no longer there! They drilled on, desperately trying to pick up the vein again—all to no avail.
Finally, they decided to QUIT.
They sold the machinery to a junk man for a few hundred dollars,
and took the train back home. Some “junk” men are dumb, but not this one! He called in a mining engineer to look at the mine and do a little calculating. The engineer advised that the project had failed, because the owners were not familiar with “fault lines.” His calculations showed that the vein would be found JUST THREE FEET FROM WHERE THE DARBYS HAD STOPPED DRILLING! That is exactly where it was found!
The “Junk” man took millions of dollars in ore from the mine,
because he knew enough to seek expert counsel before giving up.”

Comments30/01/2017 #4 David B. GrinbergThanks so much, Katyan, for this informative and timely buzz. I have an admission for which I need to face up, even if I don't save face. That is, I only use Facebook for my professional day job via my employer's account. I do not have a personal FB account and have never had one. Yes, I know that sounds a bit rebellious considering nearly 2-billion users are on FB, so let's just say I'm a social media rebel. Nonetheless, your buzz is still timely, educational and appreciated. I've shared it on three hives. Moreover, I'm looking forward to forthcoming upgrade for beBee Live Buzz, although it's fine to use now by downloading the beBee app on a smart phone. Have you tried it yet?

Comments11/02/2017 #17 Cyndi wilkinsAbsolutely trie @Savvy Raj...Collaboration feeds the soul...I am reminded of your beautiful post as it is..."A gathering of the like-minded...A deeper consciousness...Artists who can create unhindered."
And it is true that @Deb 🐝 Helfrich embodies that deeper awareness of her "soul-self" in ways that feed others within the flock...It is no coincidence that she managed to ignite my creative fire again...It's what she does...Lighting candles in the dark;-)
Your generous offer of help is much appreciated...We are connected now so I will keep you posted;-)

Great blog @Cyndi wilkins and can actually sense such a heartfelt connect as well with @Deb 🐝 Helfrich who endears as much as she empowers with the strength of her soul. Your ideas are interesting . Let me know if you feel I could be of help in any way as well .01/02/2017 #15 Cyndi wilkins#13 And there you have it @Todd Jones...Lucky for me, @Deb 🐝 Helfrich is the techno genius around here...She managed to inspire a computer train wreck like me to get with the program! If I can do it, ANYBODY can;-) She was my very gentle "boot in the ass!" She is brilliant and will figure out a way to include anyone who wishes to take part in this adventure! One of the many things that drew me in to wanting a more personal connection with Deb was hearing the sound of her voice in an interview with @Chris Spurvey...He is an incredibly powerful presence on SM as well...I love the "Fireside Chats"...There is so much potential out here for weaving one of the most influential networks in the world...We are hoping to inspire people to reach "beyond to read," and awaken our senses in a way that cannot be accomplished in a "comment box." Hearing her voice was like priming the engine...But when I saw her face in "real time," or as @Milos Djukic refers to as the "present moment," the engine roared back to life so fast I had to watch the speedometer before I started crashing into the walls! Damned walls;-)28/01/2017 #5 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.#4 that is truly honoring @Deb 🐝 Helfrich, she deserves it!

Deb is one of the most extraordinary writers out there...unmatched on any platform I have seen thus far. But she is also one of the most down-to- Earth individuals you will ever meet. She gives of herself in a way that is rarely seen in this world of "me first," and asks nothing in return. It is time for that to change for her. The actual moment of impact comes when you see her in "real" time. Hearing the vibration of her voice as it strikes a visceral chord of familiarity is a "connection" that cannot be experienced in any other way. The energetic current is now "plugged in" and ready for action. She has a lot to offer the world;-)28/01/2017 #1 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.

Comments05/01/2017 #4 Aleta Curry#1 #2 Thanks, @David B. Grinberg I think the answer is ignorance (in the sense of simply not knowing, not in an insulting sense) and in this light, @Javier 🐝 beBee's answer makes a great deal of sense.
I'm happily surprised to hear that I am in the majority for once (60%; desktop users). I run a business from a home office in the country, which has many advantages, but is technologically limited. Further, I find that older users really need to be informed and guided about any kind of computer technology, and techies and nerds just assume that everyone knows, despite the fact that surveys consistently show a skewed demographic (overwhelming majority young white men; what about the rest of us?)
beBee is an inclusive platform, and that will give it an edge in the future.05/01/2017 #3 David B. Grinberg#2 Thanks for your reply, as always @Javier 🐝 beBee. First, just for the record, I don't recall ever seeing any social media CEOs being so candid about improvements to their platform, especially never ever on LinkedIn. Second, I've used Live Buzz several times and really like it. Thus, I'm very excited about the forthcoming improvements. That's great news! Because if I can do it with "a face only a mother could love" then it just goes to show that anyone and everyone can use this valuable feature. The buzz is already growing louder in 2017 and we are only a few days into the new year, which is a great sign of things to come! 🐝🐝✌️️🇺🇸05/01/2017 #2 Javier 🐝 beBee@David B. Grinberg live buzz needs to be improved. IT WILL BE. A big reason is because few people download the app ( we are not promoting it until we get the next fast platform). Live Buzz is only available from the app. Now most of beBee visits come from Desktop (over 60%) and mobile web (40%). Next step is launching our new platform, promoting the app, and then promoting the new and improved live buzz :).. thanks @Aleta Curry. Video is not a trend. Video is a reality if you want to attract younger professionals. LI is too boring ! beBee has a huge potential. And beBee needs our community support for growing faster !05/01/2017 #1 David B. GrinbergNice post, Aleta. You provide timely information which is most helpful. It strikes me that beBee Live Buzz has been grossly under utilized thus far. I'm wondering if anyone has answers as to why this is the case, especially with the growing popularity of live video streaming? One would think this feature would still be used a lot more often. Then again, perhaps I'm missing it. You tell me? Thanks again for the good read. Keep buzzing in 2017 🐝🐝✌️️🇺🇸

Of course, @Juan Imaz ans @Javier 🐝 beBee did and took pictures to prove it! Here's a trip down memory lane: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@javierbebee/sec2sv-startup-europe-comes-to-silicon-valley03/12/2016 #29 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman#23 I have a Toshiba laptop that is 6 yrs old. I bought the extended warranty when I purchased it. The hard drive went kaput in a year and a half. Toshiba replaced it for free under the warranty. I bought a new HP laptop because I wanted a larger display. I was going to sell the Toshiba but decided to keep it for when I travel. I downloaded the Win10 update and all is well. I feel I have a reliable backup laptop, just in case. I run Edge, Chrome and Firefox on all of our computers but I prefer Firefox.03/12/2016 #25 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#24 The whole basis of disruptive innovation is for new entrants to fill a space which the big player has left open, so that fits well with a no-frills approach, but reputation for quality is a design gamble because that reputation is proven over time. The Built to Last frame applied to the dotcom boom when most startups planned on being acquired by a big name player, which is called Built to Flip http://www.jimcollins.com/article_topics/articles/built-to-flip.html - ultimately maker mentality needs to be greater than marketing mentality - and as more people hear about design thinking and maker movement http://time.com/104210/maker-faire-maker-movement/ - perhaps the future may shift more to customer focused quality determination than the shallowness of product focused hype.03/12/2016 #24 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#23 Ironically enough, I still use my 2004 Fujitsu XP laptop, although I did take it off the internet, so it is for writing only.
I cannot stand the obsolescence craze. I had my first 2 phones for 6 and 7 years each. This last android stopped functioning optimally a few weeks after it was paid for, which is why I can't create live buzzes.
There is a real opportunity for a company to build lasting electronics - and for just good enough software - 97% of users only need Word97. Quite a large majority just want their computers to work and would pay for the security of them working rather than for flashy new stuff.03/12/2016 #23 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#21 Hi @Deb 🐝 Helfrich & @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman - the good news is that I originally thought it was my operating system at fault, until @Mamen 🐝 Delgado mentioned that the video does not play on Safari.
I bought my IBM laptop back in 2004 and I saw no reason to to ditch my laptop which is testimony to the quality IBM applied - but that means that for last two years I have maintained Windows XP, so that is probably the constraint on my Firefox (which is up-to date).
When Lenovo acquired the IBM Thinkpad brand in 2005 I wonder how many Lenovo's I would have had to replace - because whatever and whenever I buy a new laptop - I guarantee no manufacture dares to build a product that can last over 12 years. I am sure obsolescence is now built into machines - just as Microsoft need users like me to upgrade quickly.
It also shows me that 64bit on Windows 10 is just an insane amount of luxury that to date I have not missed out on - though I realize the days are now numbered in how long I can continue to use Windows XP and a part from the odd script errors - it is cute and nostalgic to still be on 32bit.
The fact that Google Chrome works OK, means I no longer miss out on beBee video buzzes. I will sad to retire my tried and trusted IBM laptop and 12 years for a laptop is triple a life-time in dog years.

Comments24/02/2017 #15 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher@Greg Williams, I'm glad I found this again. I think it's very relevant for those of us doing live videos. Many of us have just been playing with live buzzes but I believe just as many want to get a bit more serious with our videos. This buzz offers great advice. I laughed when I read, Mary Poppins was a Con Artist. I think that's one thing to go back to if someone wants to produce fun videos, creativity/imagination and belief of a child's mind!20/01/2017 #14 Tony BrandstetterI found that music has an impact on our memory, for example, if I give you a paragraph to memorize, it may take some time to commit that to memory. However, put that paragraph to music and you will learn it in half the time, how many of us know all the words to our favorite songs? I have incorporated music with my photography to make more of an impact for the viewer. It works well rather than looking at images in a portfolio. Take a look - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=on5fI1hjWVQ09/12/2016 #12 Aleta CurryI've been asking several questions about the ways in which business use videos lately, so this is timely. Love the comments thus far, but I've got a far simpler take on this. I use video because people * don't * read! They don't. I don't know why they don't, but they just don't.
Okay, I've started a response, but it's getting way too long for a comment, so I'll write a response buzz instead. Thanks for making my brain tick, @Greg Williams.07/12/2016 #11 Greg Williams#9 Thanks Harvey for weighing in. Yes!! Video is probably the most powerful way to share your brand with the world, but that also means it is the most powerful way to destroy your brand by not executing correctly or properly strategizing about the message being shared. Good point, thanks for bringing it up.06/12/2016 #9 Harvey LloydWe have started using video as a way to connect with our clients.we are about a year into actual production after 2 years of finding our skill sets. In reading your post along with many others we determined that video is great! But video is also something that can change the face of your brand, in the wrong direction.
Emails, posts and words on a screen are one thing, video engages more senses than just print. When you activate these senses your video should influence them in such a way that its a very narrow outcome. Just because you think something would be nice or cute doesn't necessarily resonate with others where all senses are engaged.
With printed materials, i can imagine or insert the other senses from my own experience. With video, in today's world, the expectation is that video will deliver on all of the senses. Audio, consistent color, presentation and communications are all expected within the delivery envelope.
Welcome @Greg Williams and your post is on point.
