    Hooray! You’re Not Crazy, You’re an Entrepreneur!I was once asked this question.“You already do so much, you have a great job, benefits, why on earth would you want to start your own business?” My answer came easy.

    Thank you, Katyan, for this inspirational and motivational read. It certainly strikes me that being an entrepreneur takes guts, faith, 24/7 hard work, perseverance and big risks. But those who have been successful reap the rewards from the seeds they sow. I know that @John White, MBA @Javier 🐝 beBee @Juan Imaz @Candice 🐝 Galek and so many other successful entrepreneurs on beBee and elsewhere can attest to that. I envy you all. Bravo!

    This is some very tasty honey, @Sara Jacobovici. A bunch of bees buzzed around a topic and the flow of the words is very interesting indeed. The time and space definitely overlapped as many people approached these concepts with similar thoughts expressed in a completely different set of words.

    In concert with these words on cross-pollination, we got to experience another sort of time-pollination as @🐝 Fatima Williams has been rebuzzing old buzzes and it is fascinating to try to remember the Deb that I was when I made a comment in July. The words are mostly familiar and yet I rarely get deja vu. My sense of deja ecris is significantly less intense. Until, that is, I reread the entire post and then I seen to be better able to relocate my own words as a response to what the author has written.

    I find this fascinating. Anyone else aware of cross-pollinating with a prior self via old comments and/or posts?

    This is a great buzz dear @Sara Jacobovici and is a real tribute to all of us who have a mention in it. I loved the idea of how you showed the cross-pollination of each idea experienced by you. This is a great way of reflecting on the quality of ideas exchange on beBee platform.
    You did show by many examples how ideas cross-pollinate. The amazing thing is that I am writing a buzz on Ideas Networks, and surely I shall be referring to this interesting buzz.

    Tests of the RSS/ATOM system are now complete and the system works like a charm.

    FYI: If you have a WordPress blog or a blog on a WordPress site, you already have a feed. Go to your blog page. Add /feed/ to the URL. If a screen-full of text pops up, that's your RSS link!

    myTweetPack can recognize RSS or ATOM feeds and act accordingly. It will pull out posts or product listings or whatever you have in there. It will then store Tweets for later use. It will also schedule promotional tweets. It will do that simply because you wrote a post.

    That also means initial set-up will simply involve telling myTweetPack.com that you have a feed. It will fetch your posts for you. Easier, right @Lynda Spiegel?

    It will also monitor the feed for new stuff. Anything new will be stored and promo tweets scheduled, automatically.

    NOTE: It will not schedule tweets on the first collection. That would be too much.

    NOTE 2: The RSS/ATOM system is not yet available to members. We still need to do "Hair and Make-Up" to make it pretty for you. We expect to have it available by week's end.

    Thanks go to @Candice 🐝 Galek for supplying the ATOM feeds for testing, and @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman for the RSS feeds.

    We still have free trials available at http://myTweetPack.com

    At the risk of being offensive, Candice is a HWAHOHS. (Hottie With A Head On Her Shoulders). She's a lot more than just a pretty face. I wonder how many people have underestimated her because of her looks? As the Father of another beautiful woman, that pisses me off.

    Our society tends to see beautiful women as strictly decorative. Yet, it was Heddy Lamarre who figured out frequency hopping. She may have won WW2 with that. At the very least she opened the Atlantic shipping lanes. Without her invention, there could have been no D-Day.

    Let's not even mention all the technologies that were built on its back.

    Since women have only been considered equal for about 50 years, I shudder to think what ideas, inventions, and concepts we missed out on.

    Do you think that awareness of their digital footprint perhaps will lead to a reluctance to engage in open conversation? Aa demographic, I find millennials perhaps the least willing to engage through comments and the most aware of their online reputation. Baby boomers are perhaps carefree and tend to swear more online.
