- Producer22/03/2017LinkedIn Alternatives for Professional NetworkingWhen we talk of building your professional network the first name that pops up in our mind probably is LinkedIn. Whether you are looking for a new job, looking to hire a professional for your set up or simply wish to grow your professional network...
Comments23/03/2017 #28 Devesh Bhatt#18 as far as ratings are concerned, i did click on + and still you got a - net. I believe this is also being worked on. You are aware how bebee has got me business, the main objective achieved. Likewise, it has helped many. At the end of the day of it does not improve the user experience it will not grow or survive. For the record , you will have the proof of "i told you so". Till then i view your comments as a source of learning about UI and comparatives, since you keep them coming i believe you want bebee to improve. You have every platform for publishing available to you too, but you chose to criticise bebee on bebee and not anywhere else with the same bluntness. So i am presuming that you do see something positive here. Could you perhaps just presume that for once you could share anything right that bebee has done? Perhaps a feature that can outgrow competitors?23/03/2017 #27 Devesh Bhatt#18 You give valuable insights. I certainly find them interesting. But here are the things :
a) i do not find any misrepresentation. Marketing oneself is not an evil act. As professionals ln a social network we all market ourselves.
b) You are aware that i too had the same problem and similar problems and yes my initial comments did get an unjust reply. But i used the right channels and things got resolved. I believe a more transparent guide for user help is on the way.
c) Self promotional defensive hysterics, well i have access here to be heard.. i can name 3 fake profiles on linkedin which has taken no action on it for the past 1 month even though MS has its office in India. The Govt authorities have duly noted it.
I am from the Market Research background too and i know as far as Indian users are concerned lots of misinformation prevails on Quora too which is hard to access in the Himalayan region and they are swift to act against the information but not against the person who submits it.
On bebee i have got swift responses against all. I have access. The systemic flaw has been covered by proactive response. So i am a happy user and i wait for the next app. Contd.22/03/2017 #20 Javier 🐝 beBee5 beBee Competitive Advantages That Will Make You Fall in Love With the Site on Day One

By Adrian Verdau ( translated by John White, MBA ! )
1.- Being segmented into interest-based "hives" (which are user groups) makes it easy to reach people who share your personal and professional interests.
2.- The hives give you instant reach for your content. Your publications always have visibility, whether you have one follower, 300 or 3000. Just select the most closely related hive to your topic and share your content to thousand of readers.
3.- If you are looking for a job, you can find it on beBee. Just complete your profile and be active in the hives relevant to your industry. Then, recruiters will be able to locate you easily. You can also connect with each member of the hive - the users are literally called bees.
4. Networking with people in your industry that share your interests is a much better strategy to get a job than blindly sending out resumes to strangers.
5.- If you are interested in creating or enhancing your personal brand, then beBee is THE essential network. On beBee, you can show all the qualities and skills that make you unique.
6.- beBee gives everybody a voice, regardless of your what is says on your CV or the position you hold. We all have interests and talents, and beBee enables us to demonstrate our expertise.
7.- Reach ALL of your followers anytime22/03/2017 #18 John Vaughan#16 "Time other networks get reminded of the same underlying principle" sez @Devesh Bhatt
Yup. As appropriate and as needed. Hope to see you and other concerned citizens contributing to that effort.
LinkedIn needs it a bunch. Been doing it myself for a buncha years - https://www.linkedin.com/today/author/0_33yLQDnNkqLRm-bXWm38zJ (Most of my posts & articles on beBee appeared first on LinkedIn ... long before they appeared here)
By the same token, some other venues don't need the reminders quite as much. Quora (https://www.quora.com/profile/John-Vaughan) is a personal favorite. It fulfills much of the 'professional' part of the equation - and does so without defensive hysterics or self-promotional bluster. Give it a try.22/03/2017 #17 Javier 🐝 beBeebeBee is an engagement.-based community.
"On beBee, we drive connection and engagement through passions, hobbies, personal and professional interests. You can find other individuals with the same interests as you and then you can create a dialogue over that commonality. This is what we call affinity networking - a connectionmmon interest." by @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood.
An affinity group - what we call a HIVE on beBee - is a group formed around a shared interest or common goal, to which individuals formally or informally belong.22/03/2017 #13 Ali AnaniPart/ 2
I then responded to @Javier 🐝 beBee as follows:
very well-explained the idea of beBee. I hope you use your comment @Javier 🐝 beBee in your explanation of beBee whenever needed. Your message is very clear in your comment.
Javier responded by writing Ali Anani I fully agree ! you can have a look at " with a link to this wonderful buzz by Javier. So, here I am and I don't know how I missed reading this buzz before.
This is a well-articulated buzz and the flow of ideas is balanced and very logical. BeBee stands out and I dare say it loudly.22/03/2017 #12 Ali AnaniPart/ 1
@Javier 🐝 beBee published today an interesting buzz titled "We're All Selling Something".
I commented on this buzz as follows:
When a baby cries the minute is born h/s is selling through crying. You are correct @Javier 🐝 beBee. The question is then what we sell? beBee sells the idea of affinity hives and tis explains why people are joining beBee.
Javier responded as follows:
exactly @Ali Anani I love beBee because it is an engagement.-based community. On beBee, we drive connection and engagement through passions, hobbies, personal and professional interests. You can find other individuals with the same interests as you and then you can create a dialogue over that commonality. This is what we call affinity networking - a connection based on common interest.22/03/2017 #9 John VaughanWell, this article is not so much an exploration and analysis of "alternatives for professional networking' as it is a beBee marketing blurb (10 paragraphs) + 1-paragraph throwaways about the other platforms. No big surprise there, but still ... *yawn*
A little deeper (and even-handed) comparison of professional socialNets is helpful. Try this: https://jcvtcsblog.wordpress.com/category/socialnet/
The punchline is that these aren't just publishing venues.
The underlying insight is that useful, mature socialNets will allow us 'users' to share, cross-pollinate, and collaborate gracefully *across* platforms.

Comments22/03/2017 #20 🐝 Fatima WilliamsI like the Jiz saw puzzle for personal branding. We are all selling something and social media justifies our purpose for the same. Our personal brand builds credibility for our selves and the services we sell . I'm positive that beBee provides greater opportunities and success. For professional and personal branding beBee has laid out the perfect platform. Thank you @Juan Imaz 🤗🐝🤗22/03/2017 #19 CityVP 🐝 ManjitJust because I am in a different space does not mean I can argue against this, this is the reality of the market of mass attention and I accept it as condition of this age, so it is that I make the following proposition.
I will seek to bring a student to beBee who is absolute and total in his dedication and mindset to personal brand.
In doing so, what he represents in belief and investment in personal branding, will also become the bridge for me between this learning space at beBee and my offline learning space at HMC.
I will provide an introductory buzz about him, but I also welcome all of my friends at beBee now to ask some questions and then I will present an interview with him and at that point, he will become a part of this community.
How does that sound? If you are all agreeable message me your questions you want this fervent student of personal branding to answer and I will begin to initiate the introductory buzz and then the interview buzz and then with him in person here as an active beBee member.22/03/2017 #16 Mamen 🐝 DelgadoGreat Producer @Juan Imaz, I like to say we are selling even when we are buying... 😉
It is a way of being on Earth, the way we move, we talk, we act and react... And overact sometimes...
And that is so because we never stop communicating, even on our owns we communicate with ourselves which is the primary relationship.
Thanks for sharing this gift!! 😘22/03/2017 #14 Gert 🐝 Scholtz@Juan Imaz Thank you for an excellent post Juan. I find it very interesting that leads coming from social media activities are seven time more likely to convert. There are a number of Bees that have mentioned their activity on beBee has resulted in more business opportunities and sales.22/03/2017 #13 AnonymousThank you @Juan Imaz for sharing your consistent educational approach.
You are right, Social Media is not the enemy, but can be one of the greatest tools to People, advancing themselves personally and professionally. beBee engages all users in realizing that their branding / social media usage should be the story they want to share about themselves for the world to see. That lasting impact, beyond all existing virtual walls, enlights our own relevant and singular commintments to make us more approachable to others. Well done ! :)22/03/2017 #4 Tausif MundrawalaBranding oneself is not an easy task to achieve. It needs regular nurturing in order to put oneself forth in front of an entire world. Not only regularly commenting and reading one's buzzes, one should even try to encourage others to present their best to this universe. I am glad to be a part of this wonderful platform who have recognized my efforts of serious personal brand building. I have always loved helping others which is bearing fruit in the form of being a bee on beBee.
An excellent buzz to begin my day, @Juan Imaz22/03/2017 #3 Harvey LloydI am usually the late adopter to most things. Branding was and is no different. This article helped me make the connection between branding, our website, social media and our goals of customer interaction.
The funny thing is i have read enough material about branding to cause brain freeze up, but this article really cleared some things up in making those connections from such diverse resources..
Thanks @Juan Imaz

I admire you very much for your communication capabilities and your bright mind, together with a rich soul.
I thank Bebee the opportunity it has given me to getting to know people like you.
It is a honour18/03/2017 #26 debasish majumderGreat buzz @Sara Jacobovici! yes, sir @Ali Anani's buzzes are needed to be compiled, so that we can get all at a glance to enrich ourselves. besides, there are number of phenomenal bee including your's buzzes are equally should be kept in digital frame. it would be truly a praise worthy endeavor to be published as a single copy comprising of all works in one. looking forward from @Javier 🐝 beBee and @Juan Imaz for their resolution.18/03/2017 #25 Ali Anani#23 Thank you dear @Anne Thornley-Brown. I have just replied to your two comments on my buzz on Ideas Are Lie Dancing Pendulums. I am still stunned by your comments and even more now having read your comment here.
It is amazing how your second comment on my buzz probed into my mind and read my next buzz. You are truly an amazing brain power.18/03/2017 #23 Anne Thornley-BrownThank you @Sara Jacobovici. I was already following @Ali Anani but tonight I had some quite time to explore this site in more depth. Through your post, I was impelled to read some of Ali's posts and I was blown away. Awesome and invigorating. It is exactly the type of stimulus to deeper analysis from which companies and individuals can al benefit.18/03/2017 #22 David B. GrinbergKudos to @Ali Anani for another exemplary post and to Sara for her gracious recognition of it per this buzz. Ironically, Sara's positive engagement with the beBee community on behalf of a fellow blogger on Producer provides a great example of "what is common sense" via social media interaction and organic buzz.
As my dear friend, Professor @Milos Djukic, would say: "A great man and woman deserve no less." Very nice indeed, Sara!17/03/2017 #19 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#17 LOL, I like your response @Lance 🐝 Scoular. No pressure AT ALL. I know you are a busy man and you will get to it when or if you can. No worries. I wish I had emojis on my PC! Nice buzz @Sara Jacobovici, I think there is room for all... as far as synchronicity and controversial topics which we've all seen not everyone will agree upon. Myself, I prefer to not get caught up in heated topics and I think you along with @Ali Anani have proven it's possible to converse and disagree without a topic becoming heated. Everyone differs with their style of writing and I respect that. I'm very excited to see what will be rolling out soon. I'm sure it's more than we expect considering what Juan and Javier have already produced. What a nice buzz Sara!17/03/2017 #18 Javier 🐝 beBeeThanks @Sara Jacobovici ! We are excited about the new platform.
"beBee is an organic environment, an integrated environment, that encourages us to engage in both the personal and professional. You can’t succeed as a business professional without the experience of being a successful human being."17/03/2017 #16 CityVP 🐝 ManjitSimply getting to "human being" is a transformative step for our world as it is, and it is far from that state of evolution. A cousin of mine in California does not feel successful even though his business is profitable and his revenue has topped $5 million, but he resides in a neighbourhood in California where his neighbours have greater net worth. It is pointless for me to convince him what the baseline word "successful" means, this is how he has chosen to live his life.
Boomers like him have a massive amount of disposable capital but we also have massive national debt being placed on the shoulders of successive generations. How did we get into this situation that to bankroll "successful" we sold out future generations?
The change that will happen is simply in the passing of an old guard to a new era, and that old guard is whoever is set in their ways and their ways will go with them as they begin passing and the new generation evolve. This is how change actually happens without bloody revolutions. In the 20th Century the bloodless revolution was a marketed one and people like Edward Bernays were instrumental in knowing how to utilize the powers of marketing and that has informed HR practice also.
This change once required manifesto or open letters or proclamations or revolution, today is conversation. This is a natural transformation at the end of a big hockey stick power law that effects population, climate, wealth and markets. It is a change one individual at a time, minus those who are set in their ways. As I have said before, we are either the last of the prior millennia or the first of a new millennia. It isn't something we decide, it is something we are and hopefully one day will be.17/03/2017 #14 Lance 🐝 Scoular#8 Hi Ho @Ali Anani
I think a millennial 🐝 would be more adept and accurate than an old codger like me.👾
🐤Twitter and 👻 Snapchat is where I picked up up using emojis as well as 🐳 Linkedin's customised ones.

Even before they were called for a meeting. With a strong online reputation business opportunities will grow significantly. Thanks for creating BeBee!15/03/2017 #22 David B. GrinbergThanks so much for this excellent advice, Juan, as always. I've tweeted and shared this post. I would reiterate your message to those who haven't Googled themselves. That is, do it ASAP and assess the results (especially first page). You need to know what others are seeing because, as Juan, @Javier 🐝 beBee @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood @John White, MBA and others have noted, your online content helps define your personal brand image. Thus, make sure you're getting the SEO results that are best for you. I suggest Googling your full name (in quotes) at least once a week. And, yes, leverage beBee at every available opportunity to build on and improve your Google SEO results. Or, in other words, keep buzzing -- and loudly!15/03/2017 #21 Wayne YoshidaExcellent information and advice, @Juan Imaz. I learned this "trick" a while ago when I discovered the hiring managers and co-workers at one of my previous companies used Google to examine and verify potential employees and their resumes and profiles. And very glad to see Google "likes beBee."
Online personal brand = reputation.14/03/2017 #19 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI want my personal google to keep enriching my learning journey and I want to focus on my personal privacy to ensure I don't make google personal. That then becomes a personal dynamic rather than personal linearity. Technology as an extension of ourselves is the creation of the system owner, but technology as an extension of our insight and humanity, that is recognizing the current limitations of the system. The system continues to drive behaviors. Unfortunately.14/03/2017 #18 Preston 🐝 Vander Ven@Juan Imaz Great Buzz and Tips. For every site that you do want your Target Market to see, Make sure that you name is a SEO KEYWORD. Allow the sites you want to been seen to come up first. For example, my goal is for my blogs to always appear on the first 2 pages of Google when someone types my name in the Search.14/03/2017 #17 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanI found my name, Franci Hoffman, on Google only related to my LinkedIn profile. Otherwise, I don't want my personal profile on Google because I had a troll for a while. However, my WP sites and posts appear under amanpan.com, BrewNSpew, Millionaire's Digest, etc., which works for me.14/03/2017 #15 Phillip HubbellThere are only 7 Phillip J Hubbell's that I know of in the US. I GOOGLED myself and the first two pages were about me. Mostly Amazon and Goodreads about my books and my writings on here and LI. If I get down into the weeds, pages three through ten or so, I find some things regarding writing I did for the Dallas Paper, a magazine things I did on RFID 10 years ago and running for the Texas State Senate in 1992. (I lost). Most of the images I get are from my posts on beBee and pictures of the other Phillip J Hubbells...one of them is a writer and shows up next to mine a lot.
- Producer12/03/2017Then I remembered BebeeNot longer than a year ago, I created my profile on Bebee, I remember a mixed of feelings because it was something so fresh, a platform linking employees and employers for a social connection in a much more personal way than any other web I had seen...
Comments13/03/2017 #11 🐝 Fatima Williams"The way you decide to use to achieve your goals will be a very important factor too. In this case, beBee gives us the chance to create a professional profile in an easy and friendly way, while creating a professional network. " Love this statement @Iris Serra To think like this at 23 and understand that the ways we use to achieve our goals is vital, I'm impressed my dear. Keep exploring and learning #Stayawesome always. beBee is everything in a bundle to you , you just need o know which way to look :)13/03/2017 #7 CityVP 🐝 ManjitHi Iris, the best thing I like about your buzz is that you talk about friends and not millennials. Friends is the reality that I see on an everyday basis. I have not heard a single 20 something in my own tribe ever describe their friends as millennials, they know their names and they are connected by digital means whether it is snapchat, whatsapp, facetime or houseparty.
When we are talking about friends we are talking about names and faces that we know and not people. Technologies that make connection simple and direct are welcome and technologies that cannot get out of the mentality of placing people in containers, will be eventually be replaced by systems that treat relationships as sacred.
So when the people at LinkedIn actually made things more difficult around groups, if there is a simpler alternative, then I will pursue it. BeBee is a nice hub and it is adaptable to my needs. The simplicity here is great.
The jobs feature will probably get better over time but when it comes to jobs that is currently actually a strength of the LinkedIn system and I have actually seen roles that feel pretty tempting to apply for. The point is finding a job is not what I do every weekend if I have one, so the service that commands my attention will serve the various adaptive needs I have any given week. That is where beBee is a home run for me.
Small group interactions is still the chief challenge for me and I would use Slack, except it is difficult to get new people to use it and Slack focuses on being everything rather than simple. For the everyday learning journey I follow, beBee has proven to be brilliant. If I get a job through beBee that is for me a bonus.13/03/2017 #3 Ken BoddieI'm glad you remembered us, Iris, and that you find the beBee platform easy to use for your professional purposes. Being an affinity based hive system, however, beBee offers much more! We have so many prolific writers and poets who love to interact on every subject under the sun. We love to have new blood and stimulation. Why not also try a few non-work related hives like Café beBee and let your friends know?13/03/2017 #2 David B. GrinbergThank you @Iris Serra for sharing your important insights as a Millennial and part of the a new generation of leadership. Your valuable feedback about beBee is appreciated by all on this platform. Keep buzzing here and inviting your friends to help grow this platform. I'm sharing this on three big hives, "College" and "Students" and "beBee in English." I'm also following you.
Best wishes, David, beBee ambassador USA (one of many)

Comments10/03/2017 #5 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#4 Note what is written for Snapchat - "Stories"
Personal Story is HUGE.
Narrative rather than brand is the way of the 21st Century tribe. because It is more encompassing and relevant to 21st Century life whether that is work, home or play.
Marketing is a 20th Century invention and "personal brand" is a good word for marketers to use, but the 21st Century is "conversation" or in actual Cluetrain Manifesto words :
"MARKETS ARE CONVERSATIONS"
That is human voice.10/03/2017 #1 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThe power here is link by association and take one's rightful seat in the digital hierarchy. Then the irony becomes that the more people challenge you why you are in that group, the more you become a part of that group. Our education system does not drive massive competencies or abilities in reflective thinking, critical thinking or creative thinking, it drives branded thinking and what ignites the fire of that brand is group-think and a society where media and corporate power has become the Divine Right of Kings. Once we realize this, we can sit back, relax and smile - irony is amusing.

Comments02/03/2017 #36 David B. Grinberg#35 Gert, I just tweeted this blog post and pinned to my Twitter home page for easy RTs https://twitter.com/DBGrinberg I also thought of a few more reasons to add:
21) Leverage the “Live Buzz” video streaming app, exclusive to beBee, to promote your blogging and extend your reach.
22) beBee shares content on Producer blog posts on Twitter, Facebook and other social platforms to maximize your message.
23) Boost your online presence and SEO (so your blogs can easily be found in a Google key word search, for instance).
24) Drive more traffic to your standalone personal/professional blog real estate (WordPress, etc.) and website.

I echo the sentiments of all those below. I love how your points capture the essence and beauty of Producer, very nice. I will share this broadly via cross-channel pollinating, of course. In fact, I believe Producer has a one-year birthday/anniversary soon. Is that right @Javier 🐝 beBee, what's the date is went live? I fondly recall the first honey I produced back in April 2016 -- and it's been all sweetness since that time.
Also, Gert, regrets for being late on seeing this buzz, thanks very much for tagging me (that darn day job tends to get in the way sometimes, you know, the one that pays my bills. Otherwise, I would BEE the proverbial starving writer).
Buzz on Gert. Let's all make 2017 the year of producing the best honey yet.

This is one I am definitely going to put on my tweet rotation. The value proposition for blogging on beBee cannot be undersold. Which brings me to another very KEY benefit:
I am going to re-highlight what @Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝 in comment #2 said:
beBee as a company and many individual bees will cross-pollinate your work & your personal profile across all the established channels. It is the best kind of free PR. Mutually beneficial sharing.
Anyone who feels unheard in the vastness of the internet simply needs to try these hives.

- Producer22/02/2017Top five reasons I love BeBeeI field a number of questions on a semi-regular basis as to what BeBee is and what its benefits are. While I initially came to this network as a dissatisfied LinkedIn user (more out of frustration than anything), other things have kept me here....
Comments01/03/2017 #12 Sandra 🐝 SmithEvery website is competing with every other website for attention. But what i think Javier is too humble to say is that beBee is already so much better than LI in so many ways for the reasons you state and others. But it hasn't had as long to acquire members. So It's apples and oranges. It's also not a like for like comparison because LI is strictly business, beBee is business plus personal brand / interests. Ps: posting your interview on my site tomorrow!01/03/2017 #10 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI did learn from my experiences of using beBee and LinkedIn's new facelift that responsive design is important and beBee have walked the talk on responsive design, whereas the latest roll out at LinkedIn was not responsive in design terms, with longer wait-time for page download. Having said that I don't want to spend time digging at LinkedIn because it is like going to someone's house as a guest and then complain about the hospitality and house. If this is done privately that is one thing, but an open house on "what's wrong with LinkedIn" simply consumes my energy and does nothing to improve my own user experience - which I should be owning because it is my decision what platform I choose to utilize. BeBee is my chief learning hub, and then the spokes include Facebook and LinkedIn, though Twitter is a place I used to frequent a lot, until that is when beBee came along.01/03/2017 #8 David B. GrinbergBelated kudos, Michael, for sharing your important insights and unique Millennial perspective about beBee Affinity Social Network. I agree with your five points and commend you for making them. Moreover, I would also note as an FYI that although beBee is not in direct competition with LinkedIn, beBee nonetheless has the same number of global users (approximately 12 million) two-years after it launched compared to LinkedIn two-years after it launched (based on LinkedIn public data on its website). Thus, the future of beBee is indeed bright and buzzing!

"The greater the obstacle is, the greater the possibility of growth" really resonated with me.28/02/2017 #59 Praveen Raj GullepalliThis is one great interview! Whew! So many insights. JuanBee's awesome personality and professionalism both shine through with such lucidity! Jav & Juan, you guys are the best team! Guerreros de un nuevo mundo! Unique is the word that beBee evokes in the mind. An no less unique is the terrific synergy between you two BigBees! Like Steel and Sand - firm Goal, flexible Effort.28/02/2017 #58 Deb 🐝 HelfrichI was so excited when I saw the notification from @Mamen 🐝 Delgado ss her interviews are always great treats, but this one far surpasses my high expectations!
"Goals are written in steel and action plans on the sand." Priceless quote, @Juan Imaz
I am honored to be along for this journey. It has been a thrill so far, and my goal is to say 'I knew it,' when we all arrive at the first global beBee ambassador conference in Madrid, having shown the world that the personal & professional were always meant to conducted together.28/02/2017 #56 David B. GrinbergWow, Mamen, what an amazing interview with @Juan Imaz!
I really enjoyed reading it and learning more about Juan's background and leadership philosophies. He certainly has a lot of important advice to offer and I'm grateful to take it all in. Thanks again for this brilliant buzz!28/02/2017 #54 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanFirstly, @Mamen 🐝 Delgado, this is an outstanding interview and your selection is 5 star. @Juan Imaz, your positivity should be a wake-up call to anyone who doesn't believe they can obtain their dreams. This is a refrigerator door story where it should be printed out and displayed on the refrigerator door as an inspiring read to start the day. Rock on!27/02/2017 #53 Gert 🐝 Scholtz@Juan Imaz Thank you Juan for telling more of how you grew up and of the formative people and events in your life. What I find most striking from the post and photo's is how you celebrate the mountains you climb, with family, friends and colleagues. Thank you @Mamen 🐝 Delgado for a fantastic interview!27/02/2017 #51 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#50 Dear Bill, I recognize from your comment that you understand this absolutely and more importantly the importance of understanding this. One of the worst things I learned from visiting an alcoholic anonymous meeting was worse than the stories of abuse that led many to drink away their pain, it was the few geniuses in the room whose pain was that they did not see their alcoholism related to capability and potential they never got to express.
Instead of understanding this linkage with their own capability and potential, they put the blame upon themselves that they had failed, when the reality is that it is a society and systems of work that failed to recognize their capability and to show them that they were normal in a crazy professional system. Our very work systems continue to be a great thief of human potential.
In these few geniuses drowned in their sorrow and darkness, all their craziness and drunken existence was in actuality massive potential with no outlet, where brilliance was raped by daily attacks of boredom and where this massive inner conflict was being expressed in a prison of hidden and ultimately lost human potency. A potential that simply exploded into something else - a life caged within itself - one that should have been virtuous, but now in revolved in the death-throes of a viscous cycle.
How is it that in what we cite as a century of innovative development that we lose people whose gifts we may never see or worse use up whatever innovation they had and not recognize them for this contribution, leaving them on a scrap-heap?27/02/2017 #50 Bill Stankiewicz, 🐝 Brand Ambassador@CityVP 🐝 Manjit: Hi CityVP #49 : I do agree with your recap here, " Fight alone is good, but one must learn is the flow in that fight. " I was fortunate to meet Steve Jobs early in my career, that will be another buzz of honey to post. Leaders of companies that are on the cutting edge like Amazon, Jeff Bezos & others do need at times need to have good mentors to help them to scale the business & succeed in business. I can remember working for a Stephen Dukker in Chicago that started a mail order company later that became the 3rd largest mfg. of pcs., called eMachines. I have been fortunate to have worked with some cool people like Jim Crane who started EGL Logistics, later sold to CEVA Logistics & 2 years later is now Chairman of Crane Worldwide & he owns the Houston Astros. Great talet at the top at times do need to have great mentors also. Best regards, Bill Stankiewicz, Supply Chain Executive, www.savannahsupplychain.com , Phone 1.404.750.3200, any bee can call me 24 x 7 :~))27/02/2017 #49 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWhat this interview shows me is why Javier and Juan are so good for each other, they complement each other like yin-yang. This is the same yin-yang I saw in the relationship of the founders of Hewlett-Packard, where William Hewlett is to David Packard, what Javier is to Juan. I see it in the relationship of Serge Bryn and Larry Page they too complemented each other.
The question that is important to me is challenge and fight and here Arnold Schwarzenegger is different from Oprah Winfrey. There respective fight is different, there respective challenge is different but both succeed in their respective worlds because they married challenge with capability. There experiences are different from Peewee Herman and Kaitlyn Jenner because each of these people's capabilities are different and when I look at Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa again their fight is defined by the capability of their mind and their ability to carry challenge.
How we know what someone's capability and thought time horizon is depends on our ability to discern different capabilities and then from that discernment - relate it to what we find in the way people express themselves.
When Steve Jobs first went into business with Woz, his first break with Woz came when Jobs began to be mentored by people who he thought knew business. They did know business but at a level of capability that was not world changing and that was more fight vs flight than a business they could scale to global level.
With these people Jobs was not equipped to recognize that it informed his behaviour and when he hit the wall with his board, he had lost the company he founded. Second time around he chose mentors with broad vision like Packard and Bob Noyce . Packard and Noyce mentored him from major hurt to turnaround hero. Fight alone is good, but one must learn is the flow in that fight.27/02/2017 #45 Preston 🐝 Vander Ven@Mamen 🐝 Delgado I first want to thank you for this interview. @Juan Imaz Thanks for sharing your story. This love your system you shared. Your STEP 1 AND STEP 7 stood out to me the most. When I began on my journal, I had no clarity of my goals. Since I did not know what I truly wanted it was hard to create a working plan. I found for me, that I just needed to put my self in Action Mode, and associate with other People I wanted to be like. While I was in my movement, I had help finding what I really wanted, allowing me to me to your STEP 2.

Comments23/02/2017 #10 Deb 🐝 Helfrich@Sara Jacobovici - A tremendous idea. To pull out some section of a commenter's life and provide it as its own vignette.
A couple times I have thought it might be an interesting exercise to pull together the efforts of one of my commenting days.
I did so in my early days on LI last year when I had 33 connections and not a clue what was in store for me, so I tracked my participation to try to gauge how to devise a useful strategy.23/02/2017 #9 Deb 🐝 HelfrichThe ebb & flow of each bees attention is the bounty of the nectar of a million flowers on each new day. We have to unlock ourselves from the prison of being everywhere and appreciate the seasons and patterns and preferences and synchronicities and trust that what unfolds each day is perfect in its utter uncontrollability.
And when that fails, there is always the appropriate use of mentioning & link dropping. Used wisely, these tools are additive, but when we rely on them, these talismen of attention simply become noise.
I find myself hitting a juncture of wanting to step back a little from mentioning. I find my notifications a little erratic and so I trust that what surfaces on each day is all the right raw material to flow towards the delight of a day well-read.
Pascal's unearthings of childhood & Majit's erudite analyses are the exact two perfect examples of a bounty I could only keep up with if I lived in a hermitage with strict ascetic rules. As I think past their output to all the bees, I'd be clamoring for an indeterminate amount of consecutive life sentences of reader's delight.23/02/2017 #8 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWhen we use the highways of our own imagination that is what I mean by a "learning journey", when we use the mainstream digital expressways, that is what I call a traffic congestion. To fly, to flow to find, all this is the enrichment from abundance where spiritually we may appear omnipresent but practically we engage where our compass of curiosity is taking us to and where time curates. The blessing is where we find ourselves bathed in fellowship. Personal branding is an example of a digital expressway, but a learning journey flies out to the universe while I have not even put one foot outside my bed. There is no better description of freedom than this, the only kind of freedom that we own and that is within us - otherwise freedom is in relationship to the branded prison we economically and socially operate from - and if our home is no different to that, then even louder our cry for freedom.23/02/2017 #5 Sara Jacobovici#1 Thank you @Ali Anani.

I saw the very intersting post regarding ambassadors and equity and i understand the rules here, especially ones re: popularity & visibility. Comparing back to back tools LinkedIn vs beBee, it appears yours is far way more efficient, i get x20 or x30 more audience on beBee rather than the world's #1 recruiter's tool. I am working on a concept on digital workspace to deliver content in time and with all the business process required for lean collaboration. Though that would be a great fir with beBee. Anyway, keep on ! I will promote and become a poweruser, even if i am set apart from ambassadors/equity.

It has pioneered a shift from Social Media to Society Media with its predominant characteristics - of Affinity, Accessibility, Association, Acknowledgment and Authenticity.

"Promotional material should not look promotional." - Dean Owen
My example: "The Fractal Revolution in Society, Social Media First", LI long-form post..."promotional part:" - "We are on the same mission and fortunately we are not alone. The Fractal Revolution in Society, beBee affinity network (hyperlink) is the first social media".
https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/fractal-revolution-society-social-media-first-milos-djukic?trk=prof-post21/02/2017 #7 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian#2 Every time Linked messes with their members, we benefit. The recent interface debacle makes that stat unsurprising.
I agree about FB, although I haven't had a chance to really dig into it. I'm still fairly new to this social media stuff.
Still, only 13.7% with nearly every bee active on FB means I'm unimpressed.
I'm amazed that Twitter is at 11.33%!
If I had to guess, I would have hoped for 5% .
So few people understand what Twitter really is. (Not even Twitter understands Twitter).
So very few bees use it well. Most
don't use it at all. For those few bees to generate 11.33% is effing FANTASTIC
Just imagine if all 12,000,000 "got" it!21/02/2017 #6 Dean Owen#5 Promoting is fine, but I think your marketing team need to start producing content with viral potential. The video you launched last week is beautiful, well produced, but has zero potential to go viral. The memes and infographics look great, but again have zero viral potential. They lack either the emotional connection through real human stories, a shock factor, or humour. I was thinking to write an article on this. Promotional material should not look promotional.

Comments20/02/2017 #3 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWhat I focus on is the relationship of the bee brand to quality of life. This article by Keith S. Delaplane, Professor, Dept. Entomology, University of Georgia also leads to this quality of life conclusion.
Kori Nadine Armstrong of The University of Southern Mississipi goes beyond 21 facts about bee's and focuses on 21 interviews with with Southern Beekeepers in the USA, from this she has produced a dissertation called :
"Being with Bees: An Anthropological Study on Human-Animal Relations in Southern Beekeeping"
I have reached out to Nadine and let her know about beBee. Franciane I know you will enjoy immensely her masters theses.
My perspective here is quality of life or life path. I am certainly buzzing that way 😃

I am delving into this new world of platforms, graphics, and picture manipulation. After giving up for over a year, these things have breathed new life into me. My mind is greedy for more. What is beBee about? It’s about people and community and support. I’ve experienced tremendous support and strokes for my work in just a few days. I couldn’t get that on LinkedIn in months. Community is everything. I read other writers’ works and revel in delicious prose and poetry. To me, beBee is like no other place in cyberspace. BeBee represents diversity.

Our story telling becomes futile without a platform and an audience, and the fire in our bellies to keep going can only be rekindled by engagement. For me, writing is like throwing a boomerang. Follow a few basic rules and it'll come safely back to enable us to throw it out there again. But break the rules of polite engagement and the boomerang will either fall on stony ground or come back and hit us on the head. I see your throwing skills are well honed, Joyce.18/02/2017 #14 Deb 🐝 HelfrichPhenomenal, @Joyce 🐝 Bowen!!! "BeBee represents diversity. Members join from all over the world. I can only imagine what’s to come. You see—beBee is a place for growth."
I am so glad to have you here and sharing your precious words with us.
We really are taking part in something special and it is in some way about separating humans from all the judging we participate in when dealing with people in our immediate vicinity. When a community is build on inclusion and celebrating humanity and the joys of being social, then growth factor is built right in, because we all spend our lives searching for the places we belong.17/02/2017 #10 CityVP 🐝 Manjit"After giving up for over a year, these things have breathed new life into me. My mind is greedy for more."
This is a significant thing to say because the act of breathing in is exactly what the word INSPIRATION means.
We are normally seeking inspiration from others but that breathing in is what inspiration is. Inspiration is not a hope, it is an action and I do see that in you. My mother has a huge aneurysm in her head, the specialist we took her to recommended we operate immediately, but when we asked him what the prognosis is for recovery after the operation, it was hardly worth considering. Yet that was 12 years ago.
Engaging life this way also sends a message out to other people who have multiple sclerosis that the affliction does not define their lives, unless they want to be defined by it. That by itself is another form of inspiration - the breath those people with MS take in recognizing that while there is a new day, take one day at a time and make the most of that day - as well as one can and is able.
It also represents a great testimonial to beBee that you recognize (like I do) that this is a place for personal growth and in your case a place to develop a personal brand. These are individual life choices and not ideologies - what you write here is about a life in action. I applaud that attitude, that resolve and that awareness. We engage the things we control and remain free in and this is where the rubber meets the road.
The free in freedom is a blessing unless we buy into the curses that accompany life - the challenge is to keep our mind as focused on the blessings, as much as can be or as Doris Day sings que sera sera https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azxoVRTwlNg17/02/2017 #9 Emilia M. LudovinoDear @Joyce 🐝 Bowen thank you for joining the hive. Thank you for let us delight with the great quality honey you're producing.
