Comments29/07/2017 #20 Ignacio OrnaHasta el infinito y más allá. Ya este tren que nos lleva por las estaciones, las vías y los caminos de nuestras vidas ha cogido fuerza y velocidad. Ya no se puede parar. Lo bonito y bueno de este tren es que siempre está vendiendo billetes y nunca tiene "overbooking" y su magia que trae y que atrae a cada vez más y más viajeros es que estos pueden subirse al tren en marcha y en cualquier momento sin hacerse daño, y lo más importante es que se sienten bienvenidos y muy bien acogidos29/07/2017 #18 Connie Limonwell, I have to say, I am impressed. I have had an account on beBee for awhile. I am here now digging in and I like what I am seeing and foresee, I can learn a lot in this place. I am on board here as Life's Abundance Independent Field Representative. "At Life’s Abundance, we make healthy living easier with products that are inspired by nature and informed by science. With a focus on safety, it is our commitment to use as many natural ingredients as possible, to ensure our product’s quality and efficacy, and to back it up with first-class customer service.
As an employee-owned company, we are dedicated to prosperity and generosity with a structure that supports a non-profit foundation and that offers people the opportunity to achieve their goals by sharing our products with others. Everything we do at Life’s Abundance honors our namesake … providing better ways to live more abundant lives." We are a holistic pet and human product company with no competition for the formulas and products we produce.
I really think I am in the right place to learn a lot about having a home business, marketing, social medial marketing, and who knows what all else. I admit, I am a novice and a student here, but the company I represent has been in business for 19 years. Learning to me is lifelong and learning with a $ sign attached to it is even more enticing than just learning, although I do enjoy learning other things. I also make bead jewelry and love to crochet.28/07/2017 #10 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI like to see this level of passion and collaboration so in that regard kudos to you. As beBee grows it has to rise to the next level of thinking. You in the course of your work do deal with people who are at the next level of thinking and when I came across a beBee partner in @Juanma Romero that kind of mind is the baseline for me.
My observation is about turning the camera the other way into the world. What Juanma does in Emprende is to look outwards and yet still be a lynch pin to the evolving narrative or story. That next level of thinking goes well beyond capturing selfies. The selfies give one aspect of the inner life of beBee but it is not the larger vision. For that an organization develops or brings in higher level of capability and that is what over time will make your work even more passionate and interesting. You are deserving of that. There is brilliant people within but it is what the within is in its scale which define the playground.
I have already celebrated you and people like you with my buzz about magnificent minds https://www.bebee.com/producer/@cityvp/magnet-for-magnificent-minds-96268 but raising the bar on that magnificence is what global growth is about and that kind of conversation is the crucial one and never the easy one and that is what the meaning of being special is - there are some things in life that evolve because the opportunity to evolve is unimaginably awesome. That is a heavy-duty responsibility to have.

Comments07/08/2017 #93 Preston 🐝 Vander Ven#92 @Aleta Curry, I agree with you. When you read my "Connect with Everyone" and I speak about other networks, I am not talking about sending messages out to everyone. Yet, instead change one of your personal website links your bebee profile. Also, imagine you have more than 500 connections on Linkedin, and just share one buzz from your beBee profile. This honey you shared in itself, is an invitation to each of your connections. In fact it is better than a personal invitation through their send message system, because they see what beBee is all about. You and I our helping others, and that is what is attracting. If fact, that is what brought me to beBee. I wasn't reading any of the articles, went noticed shares from beBee over and over and over. I click on the article, not to read it, yet to see what this "beBee" was.
This is one of the main reasons I prefer to share content from other bees. For some reason, I have noticed that my followers on other networks will read content of others I share more than my own. Yet, when other bees the same of my own content, I get a lot of response. It is like Mark 6:4 " "A prophet is honored everywhere except in his own hometown and among his relatives and his own family."07/08/2017 #92 Aleta CurryAgree with everything you say, @Preston 🐝 Vander Ven, except maybe the importing of one's entire contact list. I did that on LinkedIn many moons ago, using their own tool, and it caused no end of problems, including being accused of spamming. Spamming?! Moi?? Boy did I hate the powers that be at LI for a while!01/08/2017 #91 Preston 🐝 Vander Ven#87 @Connie Limon I am so happy you found a group that you found for yourself. I love beBee. I agree that not all social platforms are for everyone. A very close friend of my who is very successful, told me, "time is like energy coming from the sun. You let it shine everywhere and expect result of fire, or focus those rays using a lens and let it become fire. After you master that skills, become a teacher and help others in your group, thus duplicating yourself, (making more time). Your leaving this lens and can now focus somewhere else to begin learning again on a new skill. LEARN, DO, TEACH29/07/2017 #87 Connie LimonThis article actually started me on beBee. I have had an account here for quite a while, but since becoming extremely frustrated with Facebook and the content I was subjected to there, "naked women fake friend requests" and then eventually just hacking into my account and shutting me down for the 3rd time now, I will not return. I tried a few of their ads, followed their links to set them up only to find out they showed my ads to "fake accounts." I am done with Facebook forever. I know a lot of people succeed on Facebook. From this article, I completely my profile, posted an article myself, and now I am taking your advice of wondering around reading other posts. I feel like I am digging in here and I hope I can "gain" something out of the experience as well as give back to the community.25/07/2017 #85 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#83 I do think that one benefit of bots is that they keep us on our toes. There are people in this world who have fallen in love with their AI bot (and I mean like they fall in love with a real person), but for me the benefit of bots is knowing what is Siri and what is Human. If we get to a stage where we are having a human relationship with a bot, that is the beholders issue and not a choice the bot made, because the bot is a predictive piece of coding designed for the predictable. Be predictive but not predictable, in that there is a smidgen of intelligence to add to our daily pathways of learning.25/07/2017 #83 Preston 🐝 Vander Ven#81 @CityVP 🐝 Manjit great point about points. One reason I enjoy beBee is it's legit. I have tried before buys leads and use automated systems. My results are lower. I feel the main reason is more and more bots are created everyday. When I make relationship and talk back and forth, I know there is someone behind the photo and not just a program. There is someone who may need my help or who I can learn from.25/07/2017 #81 CityVP 🐝 ManjitPersonal story and make it personal - I certainly can live with that with the proviso of knowing what is private and that we the people have a right to own our private information. The one caveat I have is that with the widespread use of bots, I don't employ a connect with everyone purpose. I will connect with people who I think I can learn from. Since I have never used my online connections to earn, my purpose is different online. It all depends on the context any particular member is using the online space.22/07/2017 #79 Ignacio OrnaYo acudo a las reuniones de un grupo que se llama "Activa tu vida y la del entorno" en Cruz Roja. Grupo dirigido por el insigne psicólogo clínico Juan Cruz y la filosofía de Bebee es la misma. Crear, Motivar, difundir y compartir. por eso me siento tan a gusto en esta red, porque va más allá de la típica red social. Dar sin esperar a recibir nada a cambio, es tan fantástico y tan maravilloso, que sólo lo pueden entender quienes entienden la vida de esta manera.22/07/2017 #78 Ignacio Orna“The secret is not just market you business, yet to create relationships within the Hive” - El secreto no es sólo el mundo de los negocios, sino también para crear relaciones dentro de la colmena.

- Producer08/09/2016beBee is the Social Media with No Tunneling EffectWe are social beings and social networks thrive on this fact. There are many social media platforms. They vary in focus from social focus to business focus. They mostly divide the attention instead of integrating it as has been explained...
Comments10/09/2016 #23 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#17 Dear sister @Irene Hackett- you never stop surprising me with the quality of your summarizing comments. This time I am even more moved by your writing "How interesting that you would recognize that such "excessive focus" can lead to stress and maybe even divisiveness"! Most relevant facts summed up n one line beautifully. I appreciate your congrats because I feel them.10/09/2016 #22 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#16 @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador- when I read your beautiful contributions to beBee I know what a true ambassador can do. I shared your buzz yesterday on the hive Ideas Metamorphosis Your contributions to beBee in many ways make me say that beBee is luckier to have you s an ambassador than I.10/09/2016 #21 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#15 Dear @🐝 Fatima G. Williams- your kind words are so moving and I say million thamks. I try, and if I succeed I am happier for I made others happy by adding a dro to their knowledge. Few drops a day will eventually create the flow. I am living the flow now with your sincerity and appreciation. By the way you added so many drops of honey to my knowledge as well.10/09/2016 #20 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#14 One way dear @🐝 Fatima G. Williams to avoid the tunneling effect is to engage in different activities. Just look for Kodak company. It was the first company to make a prototype of the electronic camera and not act on it. It discarded the killer idea because of the tunneling effect seeing only what they wanted to see. This is another evil of focusing on the same thing- it turns us almost blind to emerging possibilities. The cure is better in the prevention by allocating at least 20% of our times to doing different things (observing, having fun, going outside and reading different topic). Engaging in different hives is a great way to do it.10/09/2016 #19 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsYou said " Laser focus is on remaining who we are and not an imitation of someone else. This explains it alot in addition to the wonderful balance and awareness you are talking about.
Thank you so much dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit View moreYou said " Laser focus is on remaining who we are and not an imitation of someone else. This explains it alot in addition to the wonderful balance and awareness you are talking about.
Thank you so much dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit for adding on to this eye opener. My learning journey on understanding social beings and networks continues. Close10/09/2016 #18 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#14 Dear @🐝 Fatima G. Williams the balance I observe is between laser focus and diversity. That is the practical relationship I can manage myself rather than a theoretical understanding that explains the universality of experiences.
The theoretical understanding begins with "We are social beings and social networks thrive on this fact.", the practical relationship begins with "I am a human being who has social and individual qualities and BeBee has created a network that serves my purposes, the social and professional context that is informed by the individual and personal context.
beBee itself is evolving because it has found a previously unoccupied space and it has quickly found traction. beBee's relationship will also depend on its balance between laser focus and diversity, which is the laser focus and the vision to see possibilities that the beBee team can convey and relate with @Javier 🐝 beBee and @Juan Imaz.
If beBee encounters spreading itself too thin, it will be because when success comes, everybody wants to jump on the bandwagon - at this point there is tension created by staying true to what is creating evolution and in trying to be all things to all people. The individual tension is the tunnel vision, the spreading oneself too thin is confusing social signal with social noise.
Awareness about tunneling effects means we have lost sight of the relationship between laser focus and diversity, where laser focus begins to lose its relationship with diversity. Laser focus is on remaining who we are and not an imitation of someone else.
Awareness about spreading oneself too thin means we have lost sight of the relationship between laser focus and diversity, where diversity begins to lose its relationship with laser focus.
My purpose in my learning journey is personally managing this paradox between laser focus and diversity.09/09/2016 #15 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsI second @Sara Jacobovici comment so true as she says "beBee is lucky to have you as an ambassador Dr. Ali because you help us understand how we can grow and develop our potential, professionally and personally, as social beings on beBee and how beBee can continue to support that environment."
The way you express your ideas crystal clearly makes me day off just to read your buzzes as I know what I stand to gain from reading them. Thank you once again dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee09/09/2016 #14 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsThis buzz is an eye opener for me dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee and Thank you for highlighting this with clear examples of it is ! But I'd love for you to say how one can avoid the tunnel effect and it's deleterious effect ! How can we be focused and yet not lost in the focus of our focus ? I would love to hear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit views on the tunneling effect too.
I agree with you when you say that beBee is a social media with no tunnelling effect because it is here I find answers to so many questions and saved many trips to the library. Thanks to #beBeeteam for this and for you 🤗09/09/2016 #13 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#12 Dear @Sara Jacobovici- you alert me to a new perspective. beBee isn't a collection of hives as much as is it is a collection of minds. It is this collection of connections that alerted me to many ideas. You and I have at least exchanged buzzes based on feedback from the other. This is a definite virtue of beBee in that you and I don't suffer from the tunneling effect. We disagreed sometimes respectfully and allowed enough freedom for us to express why we may differ. There is one thing we don't and shall not differ about: our mutual respect.
Again, proudly I say I learn from you dear Sara and I say it openly that without having learnt from you many of my ideas would not have ever emerged or crystallized.09/09/2016 #12 Sara JacoboviciI can never experience stress when I am reading your work @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee because your work opens my eyes and expands my vision. Another great article Dr. Ali; tremendous insights and connections to other organic life forms. You remind me that everything we do serves a purpose. It is when we can't shift from ability to ability, tool to tool, and understand when tunnel vision is no longer working for us but working against us, that is when things start to go wrong. Stress is a great communicator; if we experience stress, we need to listen and reassess what we are doing.
You are taking us across our sensory system, your Buzzes have covered sound, movement and now seeing; vision and perception. Along with tunnel vision we have peripheral vision and we also have our "blind spots". All of these influence how we look at ourselves and relate to others and the world around us.
beBee is lucky to have you as an ambassador Dr. Ali because you help us understand how we can grow and develop our potential, professionally and personally, as social beings on beBee and how beBee can continue to support that environment. As always, I am grateful for the mention and connection in any way to your work. Thank you.09/09/2016 #9 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#6 Dear @Milos Djukic- freedom of choice and building new hives and freedom of selection. For me, beBee is the closet to water with freedom to flow while keeping the molecules lightly bonded to each other. We need to keep the flow, but without losing touch of each other.
- Producer29/04/2016Why I started Writing for beBee?Of more than (170) presentations I wrote, one presentation occupies a dear place in my heart. The presentation is titled "Reverse Businesses-Trends and Applications". One magnet that attracted me to write to beBee is the fact that the brains of...
Comments13/07/2017 #50 Tricia Mitchell#47 Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee my mind is abuzz and I am trying to catch my thoughts whike on the move (I've had my page open on your slime buzz, digesting it while other things demand my attention).
I think I may have lost it. It was knitting together ideas of separation and anxiety in its various permutations and can be dependent upon the different stages of relationship'ing eg
emotional distance with physical proximity; (Prince Charles in love with Camilla but needing heirs to the throne, he married Diana
Physical distance but emotional connection - like twins or a mother and her child. At least twice in my family -
Once when my father died and on another occasion, when members were in different countries on holiday, they had an overwhelming urge to contact home. I think many people have experienced this.
Then there's the fear of separation anxiety that drives a wedge in r'ships, even though there's no basis (low self esteem? A perception of s/he is out of my league?). Distancing emotionally while in a relationship because people cannot figure how to get out or the stakes are too high... in terms of neurobiology, the effects of being physically present while absent is too high a price to pay.
This springs to mind:
"I said to Heart, 'How goes it?' Heart replied:
'Right as a Ribstone Pippin!' But it lied" Hilaire Belloc
That's what's rattling around my head. People may be intentionally ambiguous about their feelings & so we can only read what we choose to perceive, even if our gut tells us the truth.13/07/2017 #48 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador"Bees dance to alert each other to the source of food. On this beBee platform authors and readers alert each other to great post by sharing, commenting, liking and messaging. I want to dance for a grand purpose."

On this beBee platform authors and readers alert each other to great post by sharing, commenting, liking and messaging. I want to dance for a grand purpose." Excellent statement @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. beBee gives all of us a reason to dance! Close13/07/2017 #47 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#46 Your example of our distant relative is spot on dear @Tricia Mitchell. Sometimes the anxiety of separation of others is reflected back on us because of wrong assumption that they are only physically with us. This is a point that deems more discussion. We expect attention from people at times when there thoughts are scattered. We invite doubt and anxiety because of our "not reading" the situation well.13/07/2017 #46 Tricia Mitchell#40 you really are delightful @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee a story had just popped into my head by way of a reply.
A relative was distant at a farewell party. I'd go so far as to say I got the sense I was being ignored (one of my belief patterns that can/could/probably on occasions still triggers me).
The relative was preoccupied. It was nothing to do with me at all. The person had suspicions about their partner's fidelity and was planning to return home early to confirm or deny it. (Back to the theme of partners and separation, though a different spin on separation anxiety).
I think sometimes it's not about us. You mention peak times & vacations as possible reasons for variations in engagement. I'm inclined to agree. The difference in stats regarding shares vs commenting, what sprang to mind is commenting requires thought & time, sharing takes seconds.
You've also got people who don't listen as they're busy thinking of what they want to say. The equivalent happens online. Self promotion may be their primary goal & therefore target opportunities that support that end.
Sometimes people move on to the next new thing. They detox from social media, life or business can take over. Not always an excuse, but it happens.
I agree, stimulating exchanges continue to occur, and quality is preferable to quantity.13/07/2017 #42 Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SAThanks for a very insightful (as always) piece @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee.You have very succintly captured the essence provided by the be Bee platform and clearly distilled the multi-faceted value proposition which this presents for us bees.Enjoyed and shared.13/07/2017 #40 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeDear @Tricia Mitchell- You quoted from my buzz "I think there is an element of delight in popular posts and a little dismay when our other efforts do not resonate with readers, or it does, but they choose not to share their thoughts with us". You provide ,e with the opportunity to ask why viewership pf posts is declining on beBee. I had some posts exceeding ten thousands views, and an average exceeding two thousand and six hundred views in average. My last ten buzzes averaged less than two thousand views and none reached three thousand. The number of comments aldo declined, but sharing wasn't. I wonder if it is summer time, or people got bored or other reasons. However; the fuel that keeps me going and interested is a mix of self-satisfaction that I breathe out my ideas and the exchange of comments with great minds like yours. This is what motivates me to learn more and write more. I noticed that publishing on weekends may best if a puzz is "light" meaning that people want to relax their minds.
Whatever the reasons are- it is enough to have exchanges with lovely minds like yours- this is very satisfying and is worthy the effort of tiring our minds.13/07/2017 #39 Tricia MitchellLove this buzz dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee your honesty, the vulnerability:
"Not only have that as the bees do that equally welled in sunny and cloudy days. They use different navigation tools to guide them. I may face similar conditions with sunny days by having many readers or cloudy days when readers walk away from my posts."
I think there is an element of delight in popular posts and a little dismay when our other efforts do not resonate with readers, or it does, but they choose not to share their thoughts with us.
"At beBee we need to use the minimum number of words so that a reader may finish reading a post in less than one minute." (I am verbose, this would be a lifelong "opportunity", not challenge for me).
As thoughts change our internal landscape, I banish all thoughts about ageing from my mind so it can stay as youthful as I please. I believe your mind is as youthful as the bee you wish to be and are ☺ Keep buzzing and cross-pollinating for the betterment of us all!13/07/2017 #36 Lada 🏡 Prkic"Like honey is a perfect food, so be Bee is a perfect platform." Like Franci said, reading a post for the second time can bring on new meanings.
The honey bee is an excellent model to study highly efficient social organization and the ability to revert the aging process.
I also want to be like a bee and feel the need for my brain to grow in reverse. For that reason, I see the interactions with people like you, dear Ali, as a way to keep our learning ability and even improve it.06/01/2017 #33 🐝 Fatima G.

Bees dance to alert each other to the source of food. On beBee platform authors and readers alert each other to great post by sharing, commenting, liking and messaging. I want to dance for a grand purpose.

Watch out for one word that I have begun to see being used rather a lot, which is the word hyperbole or hyperbolic, somehow it is one of those words that is getting more airplay in the zeitgeist right now. Hyperbole means excess, overstatement, exaggeration, embellishment and fellow netizens may all becoming hyperbolic about hyperbole is kind of strangely ironic :-) I am sure someone famous must have said it or sung about it or filmed it but it is seems like the currency right now. Let's just hope it wasn't triggered by something Trump said or did for our obsession with Mr. T. is now definitely excessive.

This is the most wonderful platform I have ever been associated with.19/07/2017 #7 CityVP 🐝 ManjitIt is good to see that Gert knows about Charlie Munger's contribution in the phenomenal success of Berkshire Hathaway. I love what Warren Buffett is all about also - imagine a guy who is worth billions living in a house that any well-earning professional on beBee can themselves buy. Buffett is not making a statement, he lives a very practical existence.
In what Gert said, these are the answers of a really good human being and if he was not a good human being then he would have to work hard at projecting himself as being that. He does not have to - he is a good human being who also cannot help being deeply and extremely nice by his very nature and that is the greatest quality of being where it is an effortless state of being and not at all a marketed image.
That does not mean that I want to see what he looks like immediately on waking up after a wild party, our private freedoms are entirely our own but I bet that he is one dude who will still look good when the rest of us would look like a yeti on a bad hair day.18/07/2017 #4 Yogesh SukalReally good to know @Gert Scholtz Specially that your owl.

About ambassadors and their role: You summed it up perfectly. We became ambassadors because we LIKE helping other Bees find their wings. NOT the other way around. Javier and Juan decide who becomes an ambassador and who remains an ambassador.
I have no say in the matter, but it seems to me you're well on your way.

We all are fortunate enough to have this wonderful platform. Most of the buzzes here are interactive enough especially of Sir @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee who have always transported me to the sophisticated world of intellectuals. His buzzes would make you helpless to think which you have not done earlier and I think that is the best way to learn something from an experienced person.

Comments17/07/2017 #52 Randall BurnsThank You so much @Paul Walters , I've been going through the same dilemma over the past few weeks; what do I wear? what do I eat? What new acronyms will have to follow my name? (ending with the classical "Esq"). It's been a real turmoil boiling down to the bottom line of, "Oh shit, I just hope I don't fuck up!".
Your post has eased my mind greatly, I'll be back on track and in the groove soon, (will be cancelling those extra appointments with my 3 therapists now and I think that @Ian Weinberg will appreciate me not calling him at all hours of the night leaving inane voice messages).
Thanks Buddy! :-)11/07/2017 #45 Bengt HahlinHi Paul,
Well, I for once think your demands are very ”modest”. I mean considering the very strenuous working conditions (standing up all that time), and the obvious health risks involved in drinking so much “vintage champagne”; you should at least also have demanded hardship allowance and a stellar medical insurance to go with that.
The way you describe it, it must be at least a category E according to the UN classification. In addition, you also would very likely qualify for hazard pay too.
It is tough being an diplomat you know. Especially for beBee.11/07/2017 #44 Jerry FletcherI feel like I've wandered into Alice's tea party. Crazy Thought: Is there an entrepreneur in the house who could come up with beBee Ambassador flags for automobile at a reasonable price? I'd buy a pair. I keep envisioning them on all kinds of cars from ancient VWs to elegant Lamborghinis. Can you imagine the impact?10/07/2017 #43 Ian Weinberg#34 It actually stands for 'Why Drive' @Ken Boddie because in our part of the world you are encouraged, with effective persuasion to give up your smart vehicles at some notorious intersections. And I know that this will make you green with envy @Paul Walters but in these parts @Gert Scholtz and I just needed to look ambassadorial, hang out near where we met at the Zoo Lake (stone's throw from the Gupta compound) and 'whala' before we could say 'beBee' we had lit up the Dark Content in a golden honey hue!10/07/2017 #38 🐝 Fatima G. Williams#37 I am planning to buy one Dean San when I go home now if I get a good one. Its about a 1000 to 1500 dollars or less an average one. But there'll be a alot of rework.

Williams#15 Aww my favorite bee is here I agree with him on an Indian Amby instead and @Paul Walters what happened to my application of enjoying the above said perks as your travel buddy ambassador 😉😉😉
I imagined how the royal font and tinged with gold ink on my business card would look and just love it. Perhaps a golden beBee symbol in the back or the top corner. Sighhh! Of all the above the business card is doable I guess?10/07/2017 #34 Ken Boddie[continued from below]

Deep respect.05/07/2017 #14 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThis buzz escaped my radar back in March 2017 but such is the way at beBee, the good stuff always bubbles right back up. My chief observation is Javier's response about Richard Branson and that Javier would ask if he can dive with him in the Maldives, to which my first thought was think twice. As much as I know about Richard Branson, it is when he wants to dive with you will be for the same reason why he has his own Island. Yet be careful what you wish for, because Branson's experience of extreme sports means it is good to check first where Branson would be diving from - "Oh Richard, you did not tell me that it would be diving to the Maldives from a hot air balloon testing your new flying costume and giving me no parachute ".04/07/2017 #11 Javier 🐝 beBee#10 @Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee thanks.

Comments07/07/2017 #119 Aleta Curry#107 I understand, @Ken Boddie, but though I experience this I don't seem to be as frustrated by it as you are.
I just skim through quickly when I first browse in to beBee and put articles I want to remember (and those I don't have time to read right then) into my Aleta's Reads hive.
Of more concern is the fact that I miss so much from my favourites. There's so much coming in now that I get fatigued before I've read through every single title in my feed.
I have to rely heavily on being 'tagged' by people who've just published something (the reason I happened upon this post, for example). Trouble is, some of my faves simply don't tag people. I feel a little presumptuous doing it myself, but I decided that being thought presumptuous by some was better than having people who are interested in my posts miss them.
So, I would like to see improvement in the area of being able to follow the posts of certain bees. Don't ask me what that would be; happily, I'm a user here, I'm not at the pointy end!03/07/2017 #114 Lance 🐝 ScoularI must have missed the tag notifications on this @Javier 🐝 beBee and @stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador for which I thank you.
I have invested more than a substantial amount of time, effort, resources and a wee bit of money (my Scotts heritage bubbling to the surface) in 5 digitally based start- ups in here in Australia over the last number of years. All 5 have fizzled or died.
That's business, that's entrepreneurship.
I understand the concerns expressed by some in the comments below. I have had my own, and questions, conveyed personally.
On the basis of this post and communications received, I for one will continue to support the promotion of beBee for the foreseeable future and look forward to the platforms update.
In the meantime, here are some wise words from some wise ones.
Innovation opportunities do not come with the tempest but with the rustling of the breeze. Peter Drucker
Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere. Albert Einstein
Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is timing; it waits on the right time to act, for the right principles. Fultong J. Sheen
Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other. Walter Elliot
Leaders keep their eyes on the horizon, not just on the bottom line. Warren Bennis
The best thinking has been done in solitude. The worst has been done in turmoil. Thomas Edison03/07/2017 #113 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorHey @Javier 🐝 beBee, my StartupRanking article for July just been release....its full of honey....Fingers licking good !

But we have a few one like @Trainerglobal Oscar Álvarez , More than this, maybe some still do not get the applied mathematics big pictures of beBee's phenomenon...Socially, digitally...it is the dawn of a new Era. Who did precede the roman civilisation? Now LinkedIn is afraid that history repeats itself again.30/06/2017 #107 Ken BoddieI have been greatly impressed, @Javier 🐝 beBee, by the success of this great platform and cherish the many friends I have found here. I do, however, share some of the concerns of @Dean Owen (as set out in his various comments below) relating to the future. I continue to be frustrated by the increasing amount of time I have to spend trawling through posts with which I have little or no affinity, in order to find those I wish to read and pass comment on, and have tried many ways to limit my feed, but without much lasting success. I voiced my concerns in my posts of September and November last year as follows: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ken-boddie/fellow-bees-we-have-a-traffic-problem; and
From the subsequently received post comments it appears that many others are also having difficulty with their feeds and consequently are also missing posts from their favourite bees (Fbees). We were then, back in September, promised a great conceptual solution which you called the STING, but there has been very little more to come on this subject since, and the repeated promises of major change continue without fruition. Your above enthusiastic explanation is gratefully received, but perhaps this would be an apt time to reinforce, to your many devotees, a commitment to including the STING at the earliest possible opportunity? 🤔30/06/2017 #106 Jennifer 🐝 Schultz@Javier 🐝 beBee - As far back as our first Skype conversation, I have had no doubt that beBee will succeed in growing the platform. I am excited to see the new updates - but understand that it takes time to cultivate and grow any business with many peaks and valleys. I love how you keep us all included!30/06/2017 #105 Dean OwenEnjoy Namibia my friend. We are but a few travel writers in a sea of marketers so we are critical to helping the beBee feed attract your typical internet user who are simply here to enjoy and communicate. Writers and storytellers like you and the delectable Ken Boddie are precious and I will follow you both until the ink runs dry.30/06/2017 #104 Dean Owen#103 i would love to if I was certain beBee would still be around many years from now. I fear they have, and are making some major strategic blunders by focusing on building a platform with the content provider in mind where they need to focus on what your typical internet user needs and wants to see. I don't want to wake up some day and find my writings have dissapeared because the plug has been pulled. I need to feel confident that my articles will be there for my children to read many years from now. I hope they prove me wrong. I need beBee to succeed. As such, I sent them an email detailing all my concerns yesterday, but it seems to have fallen on deaf ears.....29/06/2017 #102 Paul Walters@Javier 🐝 beBee I am deep in the Namib desert in Namibia and surprisingly I have a wi fi connection! Under a billion stars and a deafening silence I was able to read your innovative piece. I admire the company's decision to felay your launch until it lives up to your and your team' s expectation. I for one have enormous faith in beBee for through it I have made astonishing discoveries and met great people. Thank you29/06/2017 #101 Sandra SmithInspiring, and anything worth doing - and doing right - takes time! Can't wait to see the result of innovation - in the true sense of the word - on beBee!

Present yourself as a subject matter expert, be a good social media citizen and write regularly about your passions and interests. Practice makes perfect!25/05/2017 #41 Peter AltschulerFrom your lips to God's ears, @Javier. Perhaps it's my locations -- New York and LA -- but they're towns in which, as Leo Durocher observed, nice guys finish last.
In the Big Apple, people were unafraid to be blatantly unpleasant. In Los Angeles, they're more conscientious about appearances. Or, as a friend asked me when I first arrived, "Do you know how to say f**k you in Hollywood?"
"No," I said.
"It's 'Trust me.'"
Though those characteristics haven't hardened me, made me willfully unpleasant, inconsiderate, or rude, they're a palpable presence. Or, to steal a line from a movie, which seems appropriate in Tinsel Town, "This is reality, Greg."
So, while I embody your guidelines in my own interactions, it's rare to find reciprocating souls inside the city limits. Pity.
It might be time to move.

Comments16/06/2017 #10 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI did not even have to translate this post, the pictures spoke a million words - all real people, no fakery, no agency scripting, but yet thoroughly professionally arranged. The only proviso is that the world we live in, the world people associate reality with comprises of people beyond the careers of communications, talent, marketing and broadcasting.
For sure those areas will produce brand presence but this presence represents a fraction of the whole. In order to be leaders of the whole we have to be the whole. It is OK to be a niche play, there are plenty of specialist shops, but to be a leader of the whole, one has to take an interest in emerging networks of diverse professions and personal practice.
The future is about opening the window into the kind of work we all do and then taking the conversation above all that and then transforming that into a new kind of thought leadership. I will trade marketing for meaning any day of the year.
There are some things that become bigger than us and at that point we must become humble to it, and then trust the invisible hand of the market to prove what Adam Smith said it does. Life is not about settling for happiness, happiness is creating life.15/06/2017 #4 Cristina Alvarez PagánGracias por el recibiendo @Javier 🐝 beBee @José 🐝 Jordán de Urríes y por las sinergias encontradas y todas las que vengas.
Porque da gusto tener cerca personas que cuenten contigo, te valoren y te agradezcan.
Porque colaborar con grandes profesionales y grandes personas es lo más.
Porque hacer cosas por los demás siempre es bueno y además te lo devuelven con creces.

Comments16/06/2017 #26 Vega 🐝 Gómez HernándezAporto mi granito de arena. Esta mañana con un grupo de alumnos nos estuvimos "googleando" y al poner mi nombre sale en quinto lugar mi perfil en beBee, sólo por debajo de mis perfiles en Pinterest, Facebook y Twitter y mis datos como abogada colegiada.
Pero es que en 6º lugar sale la entrevista que me hizo Cristina Ballester.
Como @@Julio Angel 🐝Lopez Lopez, yo tampoco publico más que aquí y después, en todo caso, comparto o me compartís los demás.
Como profana y recién llegada, me parece increíble. :-)16/06/2017 #21 CityVP 🐝 ManjitSEO advantages is something that I have noticed but the highlight for me in this buzz was :
"En Segundo lugar beBee no es una red exclusivista"
Even the other day when I entered a discussion by Dr. Richard Claydon at LinkedIn that his connections were not being notified about his posts, I happen to say that LinkedIn is not the only game in town. That is fine but most people who do not know beBee do not care about that, but knowing things like SEO advantage and an open-minded attitude means that what is said about other platforms is no longer a judgement, but an appreciation, in which beBee has something tangible and good to offer.
It is much better that people who have not heard of beBee know that people have a passion for beBee in a well-reasoned way and have a philosophy that is not a one-trick pony. For sure I would love to see the emphasis on stock photo's disappear and the hokey slogans because making SEO talk real and expressing the philosophy of a global leader is the best way to go.
Life is about creating an intelligent space, for me that is space is about my own personal learning journey here but for beBee it should be one that attracts and flows - a space that takes on a life of its own shining like the sun and not one one that runs on branded batteries with the promise that there is an outlet for people who need a charge or worse who drain greater vision.
At the heart of this exists evidence based conversation and a practical passion and I find both of these things in this buzz, even if I really did not understand the bit about the "penguin" - I have to assume that this has something to do with Linux because you guys certainly don't have a huge focus on Ice Hockey in Spain. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/columnist/allen/2017/06/12/penguins-stanley-cup-repeat-sidney-crosby-jim-rutherford-mike-sullivan/102769858/16/06/2017 #20 Juan Antonio PérezGracias @Jorge 🐝 Carballo Pérez más que interesante.

Es de esas cosas que uno no busca, pero por curiosidad mira.
El mio "El día D" un titulo nada original, pero puesto a conciencia, estaba 4º con solo 600 visitas.
Al compartirlo en Google+ me ha tratado bien, la búsqueda 31.100.000 resultados y 4º
Yo solo publico en beBee y comparto en Google+ twiter y facebook
Flipante.15/06/2017 #13 AnonymousEl SEO es una tarea ardua y complicada pero es muy divertido ver como vas desarrollando tu trabajo. Mi blog worpress.com lo comencé en enero del 2016, durante ese año fui puliendo la manera de posicionar lo y al ser de artistas he conseguido salir en la primera página cada vez que alguien realiza una búsqueda por nombre.
El primer post que publique y compartí con vosotros se ha disparado en visitas por lo que puedo afirmar lo que dices.
Es un privilegio formar parte de Bebee.

Comments14/08/2017 #83 Preston 🐝 Vander Ven@Gert Scholtz Awesome buzz. I also want to thank @Javier 🐝 beBee for giving this it's first jump. I love what you said about storytelling. "Stories are powerful and shape both those who tell them and those who are themselves shaped by the storytellers." These hives are full of great stories to learn lessons from.13/08/2017 #77 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. International Management, Certified Executive Coach. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.bee the driving force and make things happen13/08/2017 #76 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. International Management, Certified Executive Coach. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.grateful for @Javier 🐝 beBee every day we benefit from a wonderful bee community, without driving forces as @Javier 🐝 beBee and @Juan Imaz this was not possible14/06/2017 #74 CityVP 🐝 ManjitHi Gert, very nice praise of Javier. There are two ways in which a leader has impact. The first is the Google Way and the second is the Fearless Leader Way.
In the Google Way, the culture the leader creates turns the name of his organization into an adjective, so today while Google is actually Alphabet as a company, the word Google has become a mainstay adjective - Google wanted to be known as organizing the world's information and when we individually search for information we say "Oh, just Google that". That is the highest praise a leader can have.
In the Fearless Leader Way the culture becomes more like a Banana Republic or something that Kim Jong Il would expect, and with Donald Trump he is the classic example of a personal brand that wants to engage his work in a branded way - hence Seth Meyers takes a look at this branded way of doing things as Trump recently went to the ultimate level of actually seeking praise from his cabinet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlCFLG6rKKY - so it is that the word "personal brand" will continue to pick up more negative baggage and eventually it is not a cool word to associate with, so at least think Kim Jong or Donald Trump !!!
So we need a BeBee Way and that way should culminate in beBee becoming an adjective. So one day saying "Develop your beBee" will mean that you have a strong personal and professional reputation or profile online . I can work more on my beBee and because I know what my beBee means I don't have to use extra words like personal or professional to describe it, for my beBee here already contains that ! So the ultimate praise for any leader is when their company becomes an adjective.12/06/2017 #71 Joel Anderson@Gert Scholtz @Javier 🐝 beBee
Here are two that I find absolutely spot on.
"Whatever circumstances we have in life, we are still the one controlling its outcome. It is still up to us to lead our life to where we want us to be. Blaming the circumstances and use it to justify our present condition will not help. It will only hinder us to move forward and continue to live our life. Trials and difficulties will always be there to set us off course, but we can handle it if we really have the right attitude in life. So instead of complaining about life being unfair, move on and make the use out of it."
"Move on instead of complaining."
Absolutely well said and underscores the essence of a great mind, great leader and great team at beBee with the vision and goals to make a difference one positive step at a time.21/05/2017 #65 Louise SmithTo Everyone else at and on beBee

All the points you made above are extremely truthful. I met others on Linkedin, I got to know many of those people on a different level on beBee- new friends who I know I could reach out to at any time if needed. I'd like to add, that you are correct about the other networks complimenting each other.

The buzz is growing louder!13/06/2017 #23 Simone Luise Hardthi Javier :) I really dislike those "artificial algorithms" ;) but I also know that without "them" your timeline (at which platform ever) will surely overload ;) the more followers/contacts/friends you get...... so I´ve got to accept this as a "necessity" ;) (I´ve got approx. 6000 people all over the world connected to me ;) Have a lovely day & evening today :) but it´s also true that beBee is a great platform too ;)13/06/2017 #22 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThe great thing about this buzz is that it puts personal branding in context with a greater whole, and so I don't read this buzz as marketing but as a manifesto for personal and professional value, and I am into maximizing meaning and making mantra - for modern marketing is for the heartless, and in this regard more heart beats are better than less - otherwise less will always be better than more because I have not met a person who has passion who did not exhibit a strong and authentic beating heart.
That is also the kind of leader I am shaping myself to be - and so I welcome this buzz as a manifesto of personal and professional value. I welcome the meaning in this and the making of a new mantra that transcends those that continue to focus on that 20th Century invention called marketing, dinosaurs who think they are relevant to the our century, a special interest group who continue to talk to us in marketing gibberish rather than as the best representatives of the human voice.
The best news of all the good Lord made it so that America is now being led by a personal branding marketer and so how is that currently working out for America? The 20th Century should not have been allowed to trump and spill its poor thinking into the first 20 years of our 21st Century, but it has. There is always hope that those that want the 21st Century will finally get a chance to live in a new renaissance age - less we listen to the message of tribal people, who keep beating their drums from the village and professional tribes they congregate in.
