    #1 Thank you - pretty accurate - knew I could create an income although I was not sure of the how and needed to acquire a set of new skills. My son has a very enquiring mind (academics do) and would have pressured me for a point by point business plan. I would not have been able at that time to say where I would find the time to learn to build a website, make jewellery, learn photography and how to approach social media. Social media is the last and current learning curve.
    Happy to say that I have his full support now.

    My take on reading this story. This is a hard part where instinct moves us but emotion keeps us waiting. The emotion of buyers remorse is where impulse rather than instinct were at play, so this story is not about buyers remorse. The instinct on seeing the pearls was entrepreneurial but this story for me speaks to the emotional response to risk. In this case not being clear how the instinctive purchase would be turned into a viable commodity simply created entrepreneurial pressure.

    The hiding of the pearls coupled with the slow burn of figuring out how to turn them into product did produce a gap. The emotional battle between questioning our own instincts and not being criticized for that decision is the management of risk, but the desire to find a solution stems from absolute pressure. It is interesting that the initial instinct remained alive, though doubt clearly crept in and this is where the lesson is how our emotions work on us.

    Today we are so afraid of negative emotions that we fail to see how such emotions can forge or shape a mind that is instinctively entrepreneurial. Entrepreneurs are associated with risk, but they take intelligent risks, many entrepreneurs I have known are actually conservative in nature - they don't like wasting money but they also learn to trust their instincts. Where others see nothing but downside, the entrepreneur makes a move but in this case the opinions of others and having to navigate a learning curve pushed the problem to the side.

    Yet the emotions would have kept working on the inside and when the solution finally arrived and the desire to convert pearls to product, that is the difference between cutting one's losses and turning instinct into innovation. Sometimes our negative emotions are helping us in the background - this is where instinct and pressure combine, and fortunately a solution arrived, and the rest they say is history.

    @Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee - if you do get that van, there are many ways to think about how it could provide you some income. Of course, not suggesting you outfit a professional kitchen, but a delivery service from one of the big discount stores is something many in this community might be interested in participating in.

    And in my youth, my History teacher used to sell snow-cones out of the back of his station wagon during summer breaks. Shaved ice, syrup, and a little bell to ring and he had a nice little earner.....

    The survivors, the companies that have long histories all are trusted. They are said to be honest, to have integrity and to be consistent in their beliefs and endeavors. Sometimes, across the years managers of lesser ethics can slither into a company but usually their actions out them and the company reverts to its basic principles. Seldom if ever does that happen in the financial products arena. I thought we'd learned. .

    @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee I am sorry for what you have been through it must have been very painful, I can imagine the bitterness of your experience, but the positive side, it certainly made you a stronger and wiser person.
    I believe that our negative experiences and mistakes are our best teachers, they are certainly painful and not easy to let go, but we learn so much from them, and may I add, we must be grateful to them because they made us who we are today. Our mistakes and failures go hand in hand with our success, they are all part of our journey when we accept them fully, when we do, it becomes a way to discharge them from their negative emotional charge so that they don't have anymore power over us, to be able to get unstuck unite all the parts of our being the light and the shadow wisely, to make us feel complete and start all over again, to find new ways to grow and peace with our consciousness.
    Thank you all, and have a great day.

    @Wafa El-Amrani ✌ you write simple and elegantly about such a complex state. I agree with @Sara Jacobovici about the need for movement to shift a state of fear and unworthiness. I Love her idea of doing self defense to restore the energy of safety. I brought much adundance to my life in many ways, including money earlier in my life. After a relationship with a person who pulled me down - he is a mysogynist and a narcissist- I lost my sense of self, and of self worth and was destabilised. It takes time to heal the energies of lack of self-worth. I also did physical activities. I took up InterPlay - play for adults based on improvisation with story telling, dance and movement. I trained to be a leader in InterPlay.I trained in Equine facilitation working with horses and nature. I pursued Buddhism for awhile (I am not a Buddhist) and did many retreats. I trained in work called InnerBonding to heal from the inside out. I developed my own research and work in the body and the senses. We are lucky there are so many pathways open to us we just need to take that step and the next one and the next and seek out people who have been there before us and who have overcome limitations. We can mirror those who practice self-care and we can restore our own self-worth. I wrote about the importance of Movement in this post. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@deb-lange/12-portals-of-perception-1-the-intelligence-in-our-sense-of-movement

    @Sara Jacobovici you are welcome, nice to meet you too ! Thank you for sharing your wisdom and light.
    Having children is a huge responsibility, it requires parental guidance and school at least until their majority. This scourge of poverty/ TV exists unfortunately everywhere in the world. In this state of poverty, TV creates in the innocent mind of our children more of lack of everything, which creates even more insecurity and unworthiness.
    Concerning the fear that prevents creativity in the mind, everyone has his/her own way to fill up the emptiness as long as it is with positive energy, the most important is to be aware and stop the ignorance to get in, because once ignorance gets in, it settles there and we become selfish and greedy and that is against the positive energy of abundance.
    You choosed self-defense that is good, others may choose yoga or meditation, others golf or other activities, it is healthy as long as you are nourishing your soul with positive energy to be able to reinvest it in the realization of your dreams. Thanks again Sara

    So glad you brought my attention to this buzz @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. A pleasure to meet you @Wafa El-Amrani ✌. I find your buzz flows with an authentic energy and glad to see this insight shared on beBee. Two things came to mind upon my first reading: one, the image of many North American homes whose families live in poverty, yet there is a television set in the center of the home. What messages about values and money do the children receive from the images on television which is a huge advertising and market industry? Two, you write, "When creativity does not occupy the mind, fear takes over the space and put it in a state of emptiness." Agreed. Except from my perspective, fear fills the empty space and prevents the individual from accessing other parts of their consciousness, whether cognitive or creative. As well, fear has the potential to numb or sustain a level of agitation which again prevents the individual from engaging in a healthy way. That is why being involved in an activity, that occupies the cognitive and physical parts of us, will keep the space filled dynamically and allow creativity in. The example I often use is engaging in self defense course. If we are living in an unsafe environment and feel at risk and there is nothing to fill that space except fear, we will potentially fall into a victim mindset. A self-defense course provides information both physically and cognitively which then empowers the individual to not react but respond. Thanks for the opportunity to exchange opinions Wafa.

    Yes, money is simply the echo of our own values. And we do have the choice between wanting to be poor and wanting to be rich, the history of trades before the creation of money by men explains this energy clearly.
    @ @Savvy RajSavvy Raj@Savvy Raj very nice to meet you :) concerning your teenager friend all people go through this life experience. When we go through financial crises, it is simply a call from our soul to remind us its absence so we can reconnect.

    @CityVP 🐝 Manjit thank you for your beautiful message full of peace and light.

    When you find home, you find everything you need, actually it is where your heart is at peace no matter where in the world.

    I like how @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee described the Norwegian happiness the "hugge", this is what life is all about.

    Self-love is uniting all the pieces of the puzzle of our personality both the light and the dark, it is accepting ourselves completely, our 2 polarities, the bright side, our shadow, our mistakes, our past, our imperfections and life as it is in the present. It is the inner-connection of all parts of the self to become whole and complete.

    And when we do the inner work with acceptance and love, we suddenly find our real home. And our inner world will reflect on the outside world with health, wealth, love and abundance.

    There is one thing reading about Morocco and an altogether different thing finding someone in Morocco who has a fascinating mind and here I mean buzzes recently produced about travelling to Marrakesh from @Dean Owen and @Paul Walters and the reason this is important is that it makes my world smaller.

    If all I do is look within my own backyard and the vast majority of people I interact with are from one particular region of the world (a.k.a. America) I am then focused on a narrow region of a very big world. A big world is comprised of billions of people we will never meet, and our human mind was not designed to know everybody. A small world is what I define as home and I am personally very happy to live in a small world and keep the big world out of that home, and here I mean the value of that word called privacy.

    My relationship with home changes the nature and value of money. The expenditure becomes being present. If one is not present within one's own home, how can we call the Earth our home? Our conception of home is as separated individuals but from our home we can create pathways and because we live in abundance, it makes presence that much more a greater currency and abundance a greater humility.

    In this currency when I spend time with a buzz like this, Wafa or Dean or Paul the wealth is perspective For sure travel does open up our imagination but home is not where I lay my hat, home is my nucleus, wealth is my flow, of which money is but one stream of flow. I love living in a small world. Close

    First of all, thanks for sharing my article; It's an honor to contribute to this discussion in an international level. That been said, Law nΒΊ 13.428/17 is not the first bill on this subject. It's an addendum, an extension of the effects of Law nΒΊ 13.254/16.

    It seems that freedom from prosecution is not the only motivation. This is the first time I have learned about repatriation laws, but I have quickly picked up on just how significant such a law may be. I read this piece on Donald Trump Capital Repatriation Plan https://www.fool.com/retirement/2016/11/05/donald-trumps-corporate-tax-repatriation-plan-woul.aspx and in the case of the United States, it does not make sense to have so much corporate assets sheltering itself from a nation. It seems Brazil is not alone in this flight of capital, but I can see what you are saying in the case of Brazil.

    #21 I in turn have to do an article on Alcoholics Anonymous where I was invited to support one of my brothers friends who had gone a year clean and now was receiving his medallion. As the session began we all stood up and I noticed that each member said "My name is --------- and I am an Alcholic".

    This affirmation was being repeated row after row, and at this point I turned to my brother and whispered "I am not saying that! - I'm gonna say I am a teetotaler" - he whispered back "the f' you will, try it and see". So in that moment as my moment came closer and closer I had to make a decision - do I speak for my teetotalling or should I speak in union with the alcoholics?

    Now it is my turn and I said with my teeth clenched "My name is Manjit, I am an Al-colic" and so it went down the line until everyone sat down. This is where my brother did give me a great lesson in life that is utterly unforgettable and poured wisdom into my bones , he whispered in my ear "shame on you that you think that you are better than them".

    It is weird in a way for someone like me trying to understand a market in which I am not a participant (a 100% bonafide teetotaler) but I do lay claim to fame that my first occupation or paid work of any sort was as a barman. I lasted all of three weeks in that role and can now proudly attest that if there was a title for the "world's worst barman" it is me - I will still give credit to the owners of the "Oldfield Tavern" they did try to do the best to keep me by offering me "wash up" duties, but in terms of drink I was washed up.

    What this buzz does give me is a cameo into the mind of entrepreneurs and the entrepreneurs story is always a good way of developing an understanding of how markets form and how enterprise emerges, perhaps in more unlikely ways than we can plan. What this story shows me is how an eye for detail is a theme that I do see pop up in entrepreneurial stories a.k.a. Taketsuru "meticulous eye for details". It is also interesting how much of mindset is governed by knowledge of product and how this knowledge is different between a promotion to get people simply using a product or service, and an education which is knowing the details of a market. That knowing of details is another facet of an entrepreneur, which I find an interesting observation point.

    As @Milos Djukic recently buzzed a video of Richard Feynman, I come back to what Feynman saw in a good scientist, which is the power of noticing. The power of observation I firmly believe is a trait of great entrepreneurs and how this mitigates risk. Great buzz as always and insights that I can direct towards my red learning.

    #18 I knew you'd be a tough convert! You just have to try the Yoichi Single Malt when you are there! For decades the Japanese liked their whisky done "Mizuwari" i.e. with ice and water, or even topped up with soda. I've also been served whisky with Oolong tea which was surprisingly refreshing, and very dry. These days it is on the rocks. The Japanese tend process alcohol quite fast, hence the red faces and very rare hangovers (something to do with enzyme induction). But Yoichi Single Malt is a perfect sipping whisky, taken neat. Your brain cells will not only survive, they will be in a state of exuberance.

    Looking forward to testing your claims in April, Dean-san. As one who was brought up to appreciate a twelve year old single malt whisky (or several) in my foggy uni days, I know the importance of 'John Barleycorn" and the source water, which combine to give us 'uisge beatha' (the water of life). But these days the occasional whiskey (preferably Scotch malt) needs to be 'smooth and well aged' (somewhat like myself, haha). The questions are:
    Do our Nippon cousins serve the mature taster's market or the 'Scotch and coke' undifferentiating abortionists?
    Have my liver and stomach recovered from the abuse of my youth sufficiently to permit passage past the palate, without enforcing a bile rebellion?
    Can I afford to lose any more brain cells? 😟

    It's not something the tourist board shouts about but quite a few of Scotland's best distilleries are Japanese owned. In many cases the incomers took over companies that were on their knees due to traditional, British mismanagement and lack of investment and they have produced a revival and renaissance of some of the county's finest brands. That they have done this with great support for local communities and a very hands off approach to the product is entirely to their credit. If anyone is interested in more information then the book "Raw Spirit" by Iain Banks is well worth a read.

    An infographic about Universal Basic Income. We can get political about this and we can get emotional about this, for me either we have an economy where automated systems produce value and we invent robots as consumers, or we need to figure out how an economy operates with a large swath of human beings losing jobs to automation.

    Automation will probably (in the immediate future) wipe out more paid jobs than the economy can create to catch up, and what the economy creates will require time for workers to get re-educated and trained for the new kind of work that emerge - this is an interesting dilemma as automation increases.

Today's entrepreneur do not need manpower as a board member but an all rounder to understand the business process with a concept. With the use of digitization our 'walk the walk' has become at the speed of light and still there are barriers and hurdles. Start up failures are more than the successes. Why and want went wrong? May be capital and preparedness before launch. Thanks and reagrds

    Γ‰variste Galois (French: [evaʁist Ι‘aˈlwa]; 25 October 1811 – 31 May 1832) was a French mathematician born in Bourg-la-Reine. While still in his teens, he was able to determine a necessary and sufficient condition for a polynomial to be solvable by radicals, thereby solving a problem standing for 350 years. His work laid the foundations for Galois theory and group theory, two major branches of abstract algebra, and the subfield of Galois connections. He died at age 20 from wounds suffered in a duel.

    #1 I thank you very much Kohei for introducing this subject. This enables me to incorporate what I am reading into my own learning journey, and had I not touched upon this buzz, I would never have learned about the founder spirit and values of Konosuke Matsushita. http://www.panasonic.com/global/corporate/history/konosuke-matsushita.html

    I am a phenomenal advocate of founder values, that includes the values of the two founders of beBee e.g. @Juan Imaz and @Javier 🐝 beBee - and if they look at the way Panasonic have laid out the history of their Founder - they can project in their own minds how that history may unfold for beBee but that an entrepreneurial path cannot be predicted today - but does flow from the original seeds of founder values.

    Founders like those of Toyota understood that to sustain their value, they would emulate the principles that Henry Ford utilized to finance the company through its profits. The founders of HP are cited as creating the HP Way (which today is credited as a human resources philosophy) but when we look at HP's 1966 objectives we can see that the HP Way was led by first focusing on creating contribution i.e.profit and then leveraging the business from that strength.

    Apple and Microsoft today carry massive cash reserves. They don't want to get caught in the trap of short-sighted lending policies. This is how these companies insulate themselves. Henry Ford discussed this back in 1926 in his classic called "Today and Tomorrow" http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/355407.Today_and_Tomorrow

    #74 Thank you for this @Javier 🐝 beBee. This is a nice concise description that I can use for my WordPress followers. I have a weekly post on my blog called Tuesday Chatter. One of my features in Tuesday Chatter is "As the Honey Drizzles", which is about beBee. I have had some followers ask me to describe beBee and this is perfect.

    I am also an author for another blog, which is increasing my followers rapidly, as it creates a ping back to my blog. More exposure for beBee!! Yipbee! Make it a great day.

    For those who are asking me what is beBee :),...... beBee is about professional networking through personal interests and hobbies. Take golfers, for example. It is the same concept but applied to all professions and personal interests or hobbies. Personal interests generate much more professional engagement and better business opportunities."

    #21 @Phil Friedman Thank you for your detailed comments Phil. The way I look at it: The intrinsic value of a share, as based on asset value of the company and / or expected future cash flows, is a constant at the time of a share split and it would be illogical to ascribe a higher value based only on the intrinsic value at the time of the share split. However, a share split does result in the share being more tradeable and more liquid, and this may well result in an increase in perceived value. So yes, the reference in the article is not totally correct. Thanks for reading and have a great day!

    @Gert Scholtz, to my mind, this is a major problem in the behavioral sciences, including empirical economics. Namely, very simple rational analysis is often overlooked. To wit, you say, "In the most common form of share split, one share is replaced by two, each with halve the value of the original share, yet together still the same value. For example a share of $80 would split into two shares of $40 each. Often there is a perception of increased value created when companies split their shares. Yahoo announced their share split and the share price surged 16% the next day." There is nothing surprising or noteworthy about this. The mistake being made is in ASSUMING that the perceived value of a stock in as a share of something real, for example, the assets of the company. The fact is that nowadays the stock market is nothing more nor less than a parimutuel betting window. When a stock is split, everyone PERCEIVES that the total value of each pair of resulting shares is greater than the immediately prior value of a single pre-split share, NOT because they think the inherent value of the share has increased, but because they expect that post-split the shares will almost immediately begin to appreciate -- which is born out by the Yahoo example you give. That the author you refer to is simply mistaken when he implies that the perceived of the split shares accrue to the shares, when in fact, it accrues to the perceived greater potential for short term appreciation. Otherwise some good points covered and made. Nice piece, Thank you for sharing. Cheers!

    OK @Gert Scholtz and @Kevin Pashuk, since we're on the subjects of psychology, marketing and engineers, let's look at how we can psycho-analyse a glass of water.
    The optimist says it's half full, the pessimist says it's half empty, and the engineer says it's twice the size for which it should have been designed. πŸ€“

    Interesting 'psychonomical' precis, @Gert Scholtz. Engineers have been designing road pavements on a similar principle for decades. Pavements, for example, all fail, due to repeat loading and associated material fatigue or differential strain accumulation. This is unfortunately inevitable and all pavements have a finite life, estimated as part of the design process, after which they will require some form of remediation or reconstruction. This concept is invariably sold positively, whereby designing on a 95 percentile basis (rather than say 90 percentile or 80 percentile) is most often described as a 95% chance of exceeding the estimated design life, rather than a 5% chance that failure will occur before the anticipated design life. Perhaps this might also explain why there are so many psycho engineers running around out there? 😰

    #9 I specialize in breaking things. I will subvert, overthrow, derail and destroy - just like the enemy will - because I don't play by your 'rules' nor do I abide by the sunny pedantic optimism.... and I have been right on too many counts to be ignored..... One time I helped overthrow South Korea in a war game...... because that is what the enemy would do...... there were more than a few pissed off and embarrassed O-5's and O-6's on that one. (Luckily the Admiral loved it)
