Comments16/01/2017 #62 Phil Friedman#61 Chas, at my house, we consider geckos our friends and guests. They eat bugs. To wit: "Florida has several lizard species that are easy to find and interesting to watch. Geckos are so common in buildings in South Florida that they are called ‘house lizards.’ " ( http://www.wildflorida.com/florida_lizards.php ). As to salmonella, most wild lizards carry the bacteria, which is one reason why we give our dogs shots known as "Lepto" vaccinations. Not only do we have an abundance of geckos around our place, but we also have iguanas, some of which measure more than 4 feet from nose to tip of tail.

Secondly I have met with a number of bees in my area. Thirdly, I run a consultancy that requires me to be in my area most of the time, On top of that I'm not too crazy about International travel, since I did enough of that when I was younger. Finally my Skype handle is at the bottom of every post I publish. If anyone wants to meet with me, they can always message me with their Skype handle and we can meet. I have done this a number of times and it's a great way to get to know people.15/01/2017 #46 debasish majumderi am eager to know @Jim Murray, that while you both are the star of beBee, why don't you aspire to meet with rest of the bees, who will be large benefited by interacting with you personally, at least one in a year to form this social networking site with a true bonding, making a distinct it across the globe? that could make this site a alluring one by all means.15/01/2017 #43 Don 🐝 Kerr#1@Pascal Derrien I thought that was you in the bed beside me - you know, not the same bed but the adjacent one.

Same problem that has troubled us as individuals.
We see the damage of others and not our own good
We know what we don't want but not what we need as citizens.
We pin our hopes on those who would never yield for social good simply because of political economic and yes the most ignored...Social compulsions born from our mindset as citizens as stated above.
You have greatly moved me to thing beyond my existing beliefs and also remind me of their essence and importance.
This is a well thought out piece, not that the others weren't, but this is something that the people must read and think.
Cheers to the thought.14/01/2017 #3 Preston Vander VenThis is a powerful poem. I agree with @Deb Helfrich. Passion is the Force, not the Direction. The greatest accomplishments, good or evil, of man-kind were driven by passion. Passion is what gets you through the hardest times that might otherwise make strong men weak, or make you give up. Remember, without passion you don't have energy, with out energy you have nothing. We can face the right direction all our life, yet without a Force to make us move, we will always be in the same place.14/01/2017 #2 Deb 🐝 HelfrichThere's a lot to ponder in this poem, @debasish majumder. As you stated so poignantly "Passion cannot be an absolute quality"
There are good and bad passions. And it can be quite difficult to determine the outcome of acting with passion, most especially when groups align under the guise of one passion.
Passion is a very complicated word, one that does deserve appropriate paranoia.

Comments16/01/2017 #37 Paul BurgePerfectly articulated buzz about what beBee's ethos is @Juan Imaz! How we view ourselves and how others view us is the personal branding space which we occupy and the unique space that will continue to fill to help everyone build and develop their own personal brands...Success beckons!!14/01/2017 #28 Mohammed SultanIt's a great idea to use beBee as a positioning platform for job seekers and for the employers who are seeking a synergy with employees passion and core interests.This idea can encourage everyone to stick around the idea of branding themselves.Branding doesn't mean presenting your core skills or core interests but instead positioning the output of both and sticking it in the hiring manager's mind.Unlike presenting your past ,positioning means telling your story from the employers point of view .Here, I understand that HR are going to treat employees as brands and therefore will be headed by Chief Employee Experience Officers! That's a great concept with good payoffs on both sides.Thank you @Juan Imaz.14/01/2017 #26 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI held my stomach when I first saw Brand You 20 years ago but I can certainly live with it today. There is room in the 21st Century for 20th Century marketing because people readily identify with it and it is a perpetuation of a belief system which one can argue voraciously for. I am a heretic when it comes to personal branding but I am also a student of what brings us to embrace image and where we can find safe harbour and refuge from a society that is very image bound and where identification is important.
Tom Peters - Brand You 
The Church of Personal Branding has grown substantially in the last 20 years so as a positioning device it works and will continue to work over the next few years. I recognize the rise of branded properties and acknowledge the 'great brands" and also superstars who deploy branding strategies to manage their public image, but Brand You is "personal brand" for the masses.
I neither wish to view myself as product, nor do I see value in my subscription to what can amount to a personal idolatry, At the individual level "brand you" can turn into a virulent form of group-think because it is an idea virus, and in that form it is well worth studying as a social and group phenomenon.
At a personal level personal brand has never been a personal requirement but it is worth playing with because social ideas are playthings that are seeds for personal innovation. Personal brand is required as a form of control since we are still evolving as a human society, and as long as we remain living in a broadcast culture - this evolution will be the slow path towards renaissance.13/01/2017 #20 AnonymousKudos @Juan Imaz. It's ME who aspires to become WE, effortlessly and seamlessly. In doing so, ME remains authentic and effortlessly united with WE. It is a social transformation that will change the reality and lives of all of us for the better. This is the process, but not like Kafka's process. What is important is the time. This is more like the creation of a new value by WE and not just a personal brand by itself. Future leadership is about social complexity with a growing trend of social encounters and exchanges. You are the one and we'll be back.

Comments14/01/2017 #43 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#41 Hi @Lisa Vanderburg, thank you so much for reading this not once but 2 times. Yes, that was my intent... to honor my mom and celebrate her life. I began writing my letter before she passed and finished the letter within a few days of her passing. I smile when I read it because it's a fond reminder of the love we all shared together thanks to mom and her love for all of us. That alone, puts a smile on my face even though every first without her has had it's up's/downs. I will continue to honor her love through my children and grandchildren :))14/01/2017 #41 Lisa VanderburgI read this a couple of days ago and couldn't respond, lovely @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. Your love is too intimate for me to come close - it breaks my heart.
I so applaud you writing this (which I've re-read anew). Your Mother is what all Mother's show be; you are what all daughters should be. You have taken the pain of your loss to make a celebration of a life well loved. Bravo!14/01/2017 #38 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#34 I'm glad to know my memory is fairly well intact still @David B. Grinberg :)) I got half of it right RE: team, yay me! LOL. I agree, remembering all the happy times, the proud etc... leave us with a sense of peace. After my dad died, I wasn't able to get to that place until I got through the grieving process and I don't remember how long that took. It's been a long time since he's been gone and my memories are beautiful of him without tears. One day I will be able to smile big when I remember the beautiful memories of my mom without anymore tears too. Thanks! Psst, I don't cry often as it is.14/01/2017 #37 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#36 Ken, your poem brought happy tears to my eyes. "She hugs us like a shadow, And refuses our goodbyes." Last night and part of today, I felt this. And then remembered, "That their spirit lives in what we do and everything we say." Wow... so true and so very moving. Thank You Ken!! You have a talent with words.14/01/2017 #36 Ken BoddieI wrote this poem, Lisa, for another occasion, but I hope that it helps reinforce what you already know - that your daily actions and your obvious love for your mum, both then and now, are more important than words unshared.
Grief never leaves us,
She answers not our why's,
She hugs us like a shadow,
And refuses our goodbyes.
She's there lest we forget,
When our loved ones slip away,
That their spirit lives in what we do,
And everything we say.14/01/2017 #34 David B. Grinberg#30 Thanks for your kind reply, Lisa. I'm impressed you remembered the football team. Well, almost. You got it half right: NY Jets. My dad got season tickets for us when I was a kid and the Jets actually played in NY back then (now it's NJ) at the old Shea Stadium in Queens. As noted previously, even though the Jets usually lost more than they won, the father-son bonding was always a winning experience.
Not a day goes by when I don't think about him. But rather than being sad, I think of all his positive life accomplishments: an Army veteran, president and CEO of a textile manufacturing company in NYC, a loving husband and father, a world traveler, an amateur tennis player and swimmer, etc. My dad lived a full and fruitful life. In fact, I would even say he lived the "American dream" IMHO.
Thus, I thank the good Lord above for blessing me with such a wonderful father who was always there for me. Even when our loved ones are gone, the wonderful memories live on within in us -- even as the pain of missing someone always lingers.13/01/2017 #30 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#19 I'm sorry you lost your father @David B. Grinberg, if I recall you both loved going to the NY Giants games together? I might have the team wrong? Loss is never easy for anyone. I actually feel guilty for hurting when I do because I think of people who lost loved one's in a manner I didn't (without being detailed) and then I feel I have no right to feel sad when I think of others losses which seem even worse to me if that makes sense?13/01/2017 #29 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#11 @Larry Boyer, I forgot to mention... I saved 3 voicemails from my mom and I haven't been able to listen to them either. Not sure I will ever be able to. I remember long after dad died and I forgot what his voice sounded like, I wished I would have had his voice on tape or something but that was long before the technology we have today. At least we both know we have them if we do chose to listen :))
