    #9 Dear @Anel Marx one of the interesting things about this particular platform is that it seems to have attracted some spectacularly brilliant women and you will begin meeting more of these minds in due course. The welcome here to you at beBee is as natural as life can possibly be. I look forward to see you become an integral part of this creative energy, and while you add to the brilliant women here, of course first and foremost I see you as a human being with a great mind.

    It allows our senses to mingle with the feel-good factor which we otherwise have forgotten about it's existence. That feel-good factor gives a huge high to our confidence and the feeling of that joy is indescribable. Even me being a creative person I love playing with resources available. One of the instance which I could remember is of an auspicious night where my brother bought a huge basket of lillies to decorate our house. Majority went with a string but I with my creative energy took the matter in my hand by decorating it in a unique way. I tried highlighting the shape and size of those exquisite and fragrant beings with the help of sellotape.

    You helped me unleash my creative juices where I sometimes try my level best to hide from others. Thanks for this wonderful gift, @Anel Marx

    #6 Failure is normal Lisa until that is we make it abnormal through personal branding and social judgement. The key part that I focus on from Anel's comment is trial and error, process shapes end result therefore trust the process, also as she says the moments that surprise us and thus being more open to this surprise and delight. I too enjoy the learning that comes from failure and I really do like most of all Anel's closing - progress not perfection. In a world that is tailor made for prejudice, creativity is the get out of social jail card and failure is also a great friend of creative response. We should not separate success and failure unless our desire is to live an abnormal existence, outside of that abnormality we will point failure as abnormal, but inside of us is where this abnormal existence becomes abnormal. It is our own soul that knows what is whole and what has become cultural prejudice.

    If there is not a renaissance in humanity with the promise of what may well have been a mythical "golden age", the renaissance in craft is huge, it is here and this buzz is exemplary of it. What matters here above the elements of creativity is the re-emergence of craft, that was particularly curtailed by the industrial age. This craft is detailed here as a personal story and it is also prevalent in the rise of D.I.Y. practices. Today it is expanding with the arrival of sexy new technologies like 3D Printing, but the essence of it is the same energy and purpose described by Anel Marx. Beyond what gets shared at Pinterest, there is digital scaling of craft through places like Etsy https://www.fastcodesign.com/3042352/how-one-knitter-makes-almost-1-million-a-year-on-etsy

    While one might not see the connection between sowing and hand-crafts and 3D printing, the bigger connection of this craft revival (helped also by instructional videos on you-tube) is the rise of the "maker movement" http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brit-morin/what-is-the-maker-movemen_b_3201977.html and once people are a part of this maker culture, they can combine resources and scale.

    This element of creativity is one of the most positive effects of the rise of the Internet, and to keep focusing on what we have lost through internet and mobile communications, does a great disservice to those whose value now can be seen as they share their love of crafts, as is being shared here and recognizing that as the fastco article shows, this is not just a hobby anymore, it is a whole community, as well as new paths manufacturing and the return of the hand as a symbol of being human. I love this as much as I detest the mentality of focusing only on personal brand. This should be what the greater spirit of beBee should be about.

    Social media works very well for consultants who provide consulting and coaching to individuals as it is possible to connect directly with them and convey your value.

    It is more challenging to generate B2B business, particularly with large organizations. This will improve when more senior executives and decision makers are engaged on these platforms.
