Comments21/05/2017 #1 CityVP 🐝 ManjitMy 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.

Comments05/05/2017 #18 Wafa El-Amrani@Sara Jacobovici and @CityVP 🐝 Manjit I am so pleased to discuss with you such a delicate subject. How energizing you are ! God Bless you.
@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.05/05/2017 #17 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee@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-movement04/05/2017 #16 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#15 First of all Sara's @Sara Jacobovici comment #14 is absolutely marvelous and I want to look at that further later, but here and now there is a line that I know that would be music to the ears of the co-founder of beBee @Javier 🐝 beBee and Wafa @Wafa El-Amrani it is where you say "as long as you are nourishing your soul with positive energy to be able to reinvest it in the realization of your dreams", Javier has made it very clear many times over that this is a central force and way of being that informs his own life and way as he and Juan move beBee forward.04/05/2017 #15 Wafa El-Amrani@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 Sara04/05/2017 #14 Sara JacoboviciSo 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.04/05/2017 #13 Wafa El-Amrani@@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee an honor to meet you, thank you very much !
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.

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.

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. Close03/05/2017 #7 Wafa El-Amrani@@CityVP 🐝 Manjit Really sorry for the late reply I was away for a while. Thank you so much for the connection I do appreciate it.

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 nº 13.428/17 is not the first bill on this subject. It's an addendum, an extension of the effects of Law nº 13.254/16. The official justification is our economic crisis, but there are a lot of us that see this as a maneuver to give some political exposed persons a chance to legalize their money.03/04/2017 #1 CityVP 🐝 ManjitIt 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.

Comments18/02/2017 #22 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#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".17/02/2017 #20 CityVP 🐝 ManjitIt 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.16/02/2017 #19 Dean Owen#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.16/02/2017 #18 Ken BoddieLooking 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? 😟16/02/2017 #14 Neil SmithIt'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.16/02/2017 #6 Gert Scholtz@Dean Owen A fascinating look into the history of Japanese whisky. I would never have guessed that some of the finest are made in the land of the rising sun.

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

Comments13/08/2016 #2 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI have a penchant for talking about 21st Century thinking and analytics for me is a great example of this, so I really welcome the quality of these buzz's because it is so much easier and even fashionable to talk about social media or leadership or even happiness, when the nitty gritty of everyday processes are being informed by the very thinking elucidated here. It might be popular to say correlation is not causation but to really understand that saying is another matter entirely. I am bit by bit gaining a better handled how to think analytically and statistically through each buzz I read from Jeffrey Strickland.

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.15/08/2016 #74 Javier 🐝 beBeeFor 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."28/06/2016 #60 Rafiqul IslamBest wishes for BeBee! Being a StartUp Global Link always with BeBee!

Comments08/07/2016 #22 Gert Scholtz#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!07/07/2016 #21 Phil Friedman@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!07/07/2016 #16 Ken BoddieOK @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. 🤓07/07/2016 #13 Ken BoddieInteresting '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? 😰07/07/2016 #10 Brian McKenzie#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.
