You plant the seed.
Nothing appears to happen for 5 years.
However, beneath the surface, strong roots are developing and growing.
The fifth year arrives.

We now see the results of your personal brand, your roots, @John White, MBA07/08/2017 #22 David B. GrinbergJohn, I just tweeted this and pinned to top of my Twitter home page per #MondayMotivation for easy RETWEETS https://twitter.com/DBGrinberg
cc: @Javier 🐝 beBee @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher @Jan 🐝 Barbosa @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador @Lance 🐝 Scoular @Milos Djukic07/08/2017 #21 Jerry FletcherJohn, Well told. Point taken. There is a principle here that is evident in how you came to beBee. It is the wellspring of this coterie of minds. It is Trust. Each of us trusts the others to share our reality. Each of us trusts the others to hear us. Each of us trusts the others be in the moment with us. We share because we trust. I can't think of a better place to be.07/08/2017 #20 David B. GrinbergThanks for another good read, John. You make some excellent points as usual, as do the commenters below. I like to remind people that it took Thomas Edison hundreds of failed attempts before he finally got it right in his pursuit of inventing the light bulb. Yet he viewed each failed attempt at bringing him one step closer to reaching the goal. Persistence and perseverance are always key. I would also note that people tend to remember the successes and breakthroughs, rather than the many failures along the way. Thus, my advice -- like that of others -- is to view failure as a stepping stone toward success.07/08/2017 #18 Deb 🐝 HelfrichYou know, @John White, MBA, there are a lot of parallels between your personal story and the story of this platform (and lots of startups) most people and businesses only get known AFTER all the hard work and countless hours and hundreds of moments of finding it so hard, that quitting is top of mind.
As a society, as much as we might like meme's about enjoying the journey, we want our spoils immediately.
To get things right, to operate in the sweet spot of being true to ourselves or our business vision, we have to often toil for an indeterminate time believing in what will be, while we put in the effort and plain old hard work to create whatever needs to be created to get to our dream.
When it comes to a personal brand, creating a personal career, your example shines brightly, as it is in the writing and in having conversations with readers - so that our personality shines alongside the polished written product - that we attract opportunities we couldn't have applied to in a million ATS submissions.07/08/2017 #17 Chas ✌️ Wyatt@John White, MBA, I hesitate to say anything about your profile pic, because the last time I did that when you were using the illustrated one, you changed it as I was typing in my comment. Perhaps you discovered a previously unknown black hole. Going by the title of your post, I hope you are not thinking of using Michael Jordan's portrait ("failed to make more than 1,000 shots"). Seeing the Ambassador pic in the heading, without a head, reminds me of the "Headless Horseman"; it isn't even the middle of August, so don't go channeling subliminal images of Halloween, even though, Goodwill has already insisted on 'undertaking' decorating their stores with Halloween decor. I won't delve into the implications of the color Orange. I know this is meaningless chatter in relation to the content of your buzz. But, your buzz said it all. I am glad you have found a shoe that fits.🐝07/08/2017 #14 Renée 🐝 CormierGood for you, @John White, MBA ! Nobody will ever know how outstanding you are until you put yourself out there. Resumes say very little about you, but being able to demonstrate your expertise and through your writing and other social media friendly mediums is invaluable. Sooner or later, someone will notice that you've got something on the ball. Shared this post all over for you.07/08/2017 #13 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorI can recall the day I read your article on Inc. and after some search leading to personal branding...then here I was for the very same reasons you depicted...No regrets, no going back o elsewhere.beBee x 10 my business and interactions.

1.- Your content is delivered to all of your network.

3.- Your quality content reaches your target affinity groups.
4.- Your content can be distributed through Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google+.15/03/2017 #39 David B. GrinbergJust an FYI that to Google me correctly, one needs to use my full name in quotation marks, including my middle initial: "David B. Grinberg" -- that's because there are other people named "David Grinberg" out there who will also show up otherwise. That's why I use my middle initial to help me stand out from others with the same name. Others may want to do consider this as well.
That's why blogs I wrote years ago still appear in a Google search of my complete name -- including blogs posts on multiple platforms from 2012 onward. And yes, beBee shows up prominently on the first page of my search. So think about using your middle initial if you have a common name, or even an uncommon one like me, and don't want people to confuse you with someone else of the same name.
https://www.google.com/#q=%22David+B.+Grinberg%22&;*13/03/2017 #35 Francisco LopezIt would be better if the /#q= direct directly to the Google+ profile instead to the home page. Anyway is a good idea. Is time to take advantage of MS attempt to make LinkedIn better for the overall low bandwidth Indian Market and screwing their interface and adding half-backed features, instead of making a lite interface.

Watch out for one word that I have begun to see being used rather a lot, which is the word hyperbole or hyperbolic, somehow it is one of those words that is getting more airplay in the zeitgeist right now. Hyperbole means excess, overstatement, exaggeration, embellishment and fellow netizens may all becoming hyperbolic about hyperbole is kind of strangely ironic :-) I am sure someone famous must have said it or sung about it or filmed it but it is seems like the currency right now. Let's just hope it wasn't triggered by something Trump said or did for our obsession with Mr. T. is now definitely excessive.

Comments18/07/2017 #22 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#21 Trust me we all need a pinch, and sometimes we might even require a punch - though I am not offering that as an excuse for violence. It is how thoughts act as knives slicing through what is already beautiful about life and trying to show us our piece. Looking at just one piece of life can disturb our peace. Peace is a reminder that knives cannot cut our soul, but that we can ignore our soul by becoming beholden to our thoughts. We are taught to see the parts in the whole and not the whole in the parts.18/07/2017 #21 🐝 Fatima G. Williams#20 Thats is the biggest gratitude I hold right now. Thank ful that I have a life and thank you for never ceasing to enrich me, I am not yet sure if I cannot afford this MBA I will share my journey with you all soon. Thank you once again for making me pinch myself in acknowledging the gift of life.18/07/2017 #20 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#19 Dear @🐝 Fatima G. Williams
Lifetime learning, lifetime work, lifetime peace. Life is not something separate unless it is separated. Our mind carves thoughts.
Enjoy the heart that is not in peace and the peace that you find in your heart. Enjoy the relationships you make in doing your MBA, enjoy the lives that wrote the MBA books and the books you may write so others may enjoy them, enjoy the cup that is not full and the cup that is, enjoy the journey and enjoy the home, enjoy purpose and enjoy meaningless, enjoy driven and enjoy not so driven, but above all enjoy life because, for the biggest reason of all, you already have it.18/07/2017 #19 🐝 Fatima G. Williams#18 @CityVP 🐝 Manjit Your comment here could not have come at a more better time than now. I am on the path which I believe is to the life path that your talking about, the career path I've been now, doesn't seem to give me the fulfilment and satisfaction and peace in my heart. My cup is not full and I am not able to give. And I want to give, the MBA I choose to study is supposed to give me the clarity I'm looking for? Or will it not? I am yet to find out. I have seen what learning has done to me. I have seen what the career path has done to me and I cannot wait to be on this purpose driven journey I've undertaken. I am yet to find out!18/07/2017 #18 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThanks @🐝 Fatima G. Williams for reviving this buzz by placing it in the https://www.bebee.com/group/56487 Why beBee Hive. It is timely in terms of context for @Whitney Raver and including @Melissa Hefferman
This is a reminder about context. Whitney questioned the relationship of personality, reputation and brand. Life path value is not in the sum of these parts or these parts separated to further levels of definition. Career path is a great reminder of life as parts vs. when the whole is LIFE where brand is a myriad of things that simply fits into that whole.
Career path value is born of 20th Century perspective, but life path value is a birthright to 21st Century thinking. You may ask Fatima what is the significance of Life Path vs. Career Path and I will tell you in that regard that it is significant in difference as Peace is to War. In a world where we partition life and operate in three distinct segments EDUCATION - WORK - RETIREMENT we create agitation inside each division.
In a world where life is whole there is peace, until that is we are dragged into the daily life battle that defines millennials and boomers - for age is not a division, it is a wisdom. Today we have ageism because we have division. I want LIFE PATH. That is what I am pursuing here - and in this I find both humanity and peace. To choose career path value is to choose war.05/02/2017 #15 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#11 Dear Donna, that is also the best reason I have for thinking this, because having written it, it also requires my own consideration to think further. That is the best thing about learning, it is a small or grand as we choose it be, it can be in silence or in infinite loops. Thanks for your thoughts.05/02/2017 #14 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#12 Dear Fatima there should come a time in a human era in the future where making a difference is such a norm that it would be like telling people that we breath with lungs. Remember that voice is what emanates from within us that can make a difference, but we also have an inner voice and the difference it makes is entirely that which is within us - it is our own inner voice and that is the voice of the 21st Century.04/02/2017 #12 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsQuote "How stupid is any ideology that gears everything for the middle part of life and has littler reverence for beginning or end. The Life Path is a 21st Century mind." #Truth Stupid indeed and the ideology still exists ! ! !
The life path epitomizes all the path we take and we have the power to inspire others to act. You are a living example - a symbolic expression of learning and I will join you and spread your voice along with my learning journey if I humbly may , As the voice of this century as well to the people I can make a difference to. To the few friends of the 500plus I have who read an interesting buzz or quote or comment when I share on fb/insta etc and most importantly to the immediate people around me.
Excellent message from the star fish story ' The understanding that we hold in our hands the power to change a life, a mind, or a circumstance today – right now – is a powerful insight and motivator"04/02/2017 #8 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#5 Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee you are the embodiment of life path value and that is why I honour you and why others who come across your mind revere you. When we subscribe to old thinking we are old, when we subscribe to life - we are thinkers who are incredibly alive. The life path can become the inconvenient truth where fear tells us love is not what we bring to work, but only as a brand.04/02/2017 #7 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#4 Fatima, the career path is the default setting and the industrial age is the ecosystem. Th Life Path is the path of the individual, the Career Path is the path of the group. The group has had revolution after revolution after revolution only to emerge as a group again. Even hedonism and individualism is a group mindset. The Life Path is the same story as the often told story of the "Star Fish" https://www.cityyear.org/about-us/culture-values/founding-stories/starfish-story
Like it or not, I am the voice of the 21st Century - because it is the one voice that is largely unheard - the voice of our own heart and the humanity that cultivates totally within us and if that humanity is born within the 21st Century voice is simply us hearing ourselves, perhaps for some for the first time and that is a really difficult thing for people educated to live life on the education-career-retirement conveyor belt.
Personal brand becomes an empty vessel when we live on that industrial age conveyor belt and I know that to be true because as I have expressed before, personal brand is something we take off with our work cloth when we arrive home - and it does not deal with that which is empty inside of us - it simply is a survival reaction due to the framing of the career path as a central focal point.
I also know it because people are in tears when they tell me their personal stories - and how can people who empty vessels called career professionals even begin to arrive at this point - because if they did, it would show the pandora's box personal brand often hides. How stupid is any ideology that gears everything for the middle part of life and has littler reverence for beginning or end. The Life Path is a 21st Century mind. Branding is a great form of learning but in the context of the Life Path not as core Career.04/02/2017 #6 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#1 My family is not going to like this one bit, not at all, but I am going to watch "The Century of the Self" this afternoon, but this time on our home theater screen (which is normally deployed on Friday and Saturday evenings - right now I have to set up an early warning system that between 2pm and 6pm I will sequestrating an afternoon show, and while this will not be "Occupy Wall Street", today will definitely be "Occupy Home".
Our home theater is in the largest room of the house which is best described as a party room or great hall - and it forms a center of our home - so when I say occupy, I really do mean "occupy" :-) For my family, what I want to watch is usually considered as equivalent of Edvard Munch's "Scream" - the last time they collectively had that look was when I emptied the room watching a movie that I personally found inspiring called "Miindwalk" - that was the evening I convinced our kids to watch it.
15 minutes in those brave souls were asleep and eventually the room emptied. I was given a gentle rebuke that weekend that Mindwalk is not considered "family time" :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uec1CX-6A38 Apparently series like "The Walking Dead" are considered essential elements to "family time" - a series the family watched on the big screen - except me.04/02/2017 #5 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeWhat a great buzz dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit and tribute to a great thinker dear@🐝 Fatima G. Williams. The sseds of ideas resulted in such a great buzzz and this one is exemplary of what true ideas-pollination mean.
"What we say in innocence emerges with more truth than what we say with design
for the simple reason that the pure can feel more than those whose life experiences have either toughened or hardened their hearts
"In giving we receive, in receiving we learn, in learning we grow".
We are told to expect 10 to 15 jobs in our life and to be prepared to adapt to constantly changing market conditions. Yet we hang onto the idea of the "career path"
Great thinking, great ideas, eye-opening to contradictions in our lives and the need to change to a growth model that starts with giving to end up in learning. Sharing proudly04/02/2017 #4 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsI'm ecstatic to read this brilliant buzz . As I say many times with you my learning journey only begins. It makes me think like I haven't in the last 20 years of my life. Thank you for all the learning contributions you provide to the world.
I've read the buzz half way through and at the documentary part now. I couldn't agree less about what challenges there are when it comes to obedience/conformist and creativity/free-thinking as contradictions. I can only imagine if I HAD found a medium like beBee to express and learn while I was in school. I'd be a different person now in terms of the knowledge and ideas I would have gained. I don't think I learnt much from school other than the fact I was supposed to get good grades , be obedient , not talk in class and not be fun loving.
I was an outstanding girl in class every-time I asked Whynot my teacher would get annoyed and say" Out you go ( LOL) ". I Now see all the toppers students during my school who worked too much to get those grades - Where are they now ? Just an ordinary person why didn't they put all that smartness to use ??
But honestly that's what classes do they kill the creativity and create a conformist.
My learning journey in Life started when I was 16 and started doing part time jobs. Learnt about people, greed, money , love and it's role in people's lives
I am so glad the current generation has access to the things I never had as a child. Thank you @CityVP 🐝 Manjit for such an illuminating buzz

Comments24/07/2017 #35 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBeeyes @CityVP 🐝 Manjit every human has the potential for trust, freedom and autonomy within their own system. And every human has the potential for fear, greed, control. We need to be careful of what seeds we are sowing. And we also need to be careful of whom we work, and play with and who we elect.23/07/2017 #34 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#33 Our immune system is our intelligence and even a stray immune system is a danger to the body, and if we have a healthy immune system, our focus can be directed at what is making the organization come alive. It is not what people need but what is flourishing within our own being, for if trust, freedom and autonomy is not flowing in our own veins, then what is it that we are attracting? That is the magnetic flow in our own blood stream.
A magnet for magnificent minds is neither predicated on the Law of Attraction or the Invisible Hand. It is a most visible means of learning to see - because if we not seeing it, feeling it, tasting it then it is conceptual as what being lucky means. We do need luck that we attract beings create the diversity needed for a living organization but much is also that which flows in us and that is the hardest part of defining the word leadership. For a magnet attraction is the norm but magnificent minds is the most magnetic of challenges. A living organization attracts a magnificent mind, a dead organization repels that same mind.23/07/2017 #33 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBeeI totally agree @CityVP 🐝 Manjit with so mahy of your comments. An organistaion is a living entity, but, many want to kill it off by making things solid like concrete, and suck the life out of people. All the systems of control of people suck away their life, their energy , their creativity. And then when they are disengaged "fixes" are generated. But the fix does not work as the problem is inherently in the systems of control. People need to have the trust, freedom and autonomy to work and achieve the purpose of the organization.09/07/2017 #32 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#31 The emergence here does depend on the expressions of individual people that flourish to create new context. We do not know how or when that context takes upon a life of its own but it requires humility. Sometimes we enforce control and unwittingly serve controllers, then that which will emerge will not be worth talking about - eventually what emerges can be the metaphorical equivalent of "living water" or the abject and physical equivalent of pond-scum.
The compass then indeed has a True North pointing towards humanity, because if the singularity happened and artificial intelligence could decide upon truth, this artificial intelligence will not see human beings as humanity but much like human beings view a virus. We have so far not reached out and touched the humanity of own human singularity and we are already contemplating what is transhuman and beyond - emergence will either be an emergency as in the creation of new crisis or emergent form of humanity, even one born from the space of chaos.
Perhaps Sara you will take pause to know that a scholar who took on the purpose of trying to figure out the human condition, was so vilified he had to endure defamation suits and legal battles that would have withered a lesser being. The comments on Goodreads will show how much opinion swings on a subject like the "human condition" http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/27305883-freedom - so we are far removed from a societal awareness that is based on humanity.09/07/2017 #31 Sara Jacobovici#22 Well said @CityVP 🐝 Manjit! Thank you for your kind words Manjit. I just finished writing in another comment of how glad I am that you are part of my journey. Three thoughts to highlight: 1. "...truth expressed with humanity." What an eye opener for me! I often take it for granted that truth is just truth, as in the sense of "with a capital T." I have never really been conscious of the fact that attaining truth is not the end goal, it's how to express that truth. And here you say, "with humanity". No wonder we can look at something as being true but if it is not expressed with humanity, we can't experience its essence or "know" that truth. 2. "...those behind the scenes who can transform today's visibility into tomorrows vision." It's like the Mozart quote, 'The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between.' Agreed, our vision can be realized only through the support and connection with those whose contributions are not visible. 3. "Why would I spend my minutes here at beBee unless i truly believed within that a greater vision is in the cusp of evolving - but it will emerge and like all great emergence, it will self-organize into something far greater than we realize." I share in that belief. Thanks for everything Manjit.07/07/2017 #25 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#19 Dear @David B. Grinberg the atoms of talent are everywhere, what I honour with this buzz is possibility. That possibility is transcribed in my comments #16 and #20 - and yet alone I am powerless, together however it is about awakening to possibility rather dream what it is we dream. Learning to see is accompanied by massive core of humility, I am not placing my hands on how emergence designs or how life self-organizes, but I have taken a psychic snapshot of what is or was alive in the moment I took it. That appreciation is what gives this particular magnetic field its strength - a magnet can also attract mediocre minds, the appreciation is in the title of the buzz - which is "MAGNIFICENT MINDS". I count in that example of magnificent minds people like @Dean Owen also - but remember this is TOTALLY at the level of APPRECIATION - for I don't want to place my hands on this and direct it because that form of control switches the magnet back from magnificent minds to the everyday reality of mediocre. At least in my lifetime I could say that I crossed the path of shooting star of possibility, but I don't control that star.07/07/2017 #23 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#20 We are not to know why the Earth is in its position or why the moon in its position but we do know that myriad placements that came into being created the recipe for life and that includes the tilt of the Earth and a myriad other things like the response of a bacteria. So the magnet is as big as the magnetic field that protects us from the Sun but at the local level it is a product of how evolution works. Not at the simplistic level of survival of the fittest but at the beautiful level of what Stewart Brand once said
"ORDER IS FOR FREE" is a quote from Stewart Brand
This much I know, life hands the big idea to a few people and then that idea becomes a magnet for magnificent minds, but the greatest failure is in the hands of people who blow this opportunity, and then life WAITS and the opportunity flows to the next seed of evolution - and what this buzz pays homage to is that at the time of writing it, the poles of this magnet have not changed. The seeds of the new do emerge from the ashes of the old and history is rife with people who did not see what they had and then settled for the lesser dream - for imagine being at Shockley Semiconductors are seeing an owner that missed the dream and settled for less - such a story is exemplified by the "Traitorous Eight"
THE TRAITOROUS EIGHT
Where there is foolishness, history repeats itself - where there is legend, history is made.
Either way I am merely appreciating proof of a magnet in the picture I see above - that picture can one day could serve as an inspiration to many or a warning to a few. It is the few that will always be handed the opportunity to transform ways of being.07/07/2017 #22 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#16 What happens @Sara Jacobovici when a magnet draws in magnificent minds? The watermark is raised, we are then no longer swimming in a pool of low capability or an exclusive walled garden, especially when great organizations can only be great with great minds.
More than sharing this space with a great mind like you, a part of greatness is bringing into focus the great minds that we do not see, the one's that work in the background and whose work we only notice when things do not work or we demand something to be better.
Traditionally technologists and creatives have had a confrontational view of the "suits", unless we who benefit from their work note that our allegiance and respect includes them. These are the kind of people pictured above in the beBee office. There is no such thing in my world as a labour of love, there is only depth of appreciation, as we learn together how to live in an appreciative world - where appreciation is not a euphemism for positive thinking or slogans, but truth expressed with humanity.
This is the world that creative and technologically gifted people operate in and so this appreciation is widened and made inclusive, not just for the people who are visible here but those behind the scenes who can transform today's visibility into tomorrows vision. Why would I spend my minutes here at beBee unless i truly believed within that a greater vision is in the cusp of evolving - but it will emerge and like all great emergence, it will self-organize into something far greater than we realize.07/07/2017 #20 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeDear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit- you remind me of a buzz that I wrote on beBee almost year ago and titled "Finding the Needle of the Compass". If the needle of the compass is lost or made too heavy to show the direction then the compass shall fail to show the north direction.
I wonder if the magnets in our heads ar different ?
The magnets in our minds and the magnets in our senses. I concluded my buzz by saying "These findings are again consistent with the idea that we need magnetized senses to stay on our direction.
We know that your vision lays out a destination; your destination guides your strategy; and strategy chooses action. We need magnetized eyes and noses and all our senses to identify our direction and stay faithful to it"
How about the magnets in our guts?
So much to think about.07/07/2017 #19 David B. GrinbergManjit, I echo your appreciation of all the amazing talent at beBee. It takes a collective of worker bees to build the hive. Success is a team effort for an organization. No one does it alone, not the CEO or the factory floor worker. Thanks, as always, for sharing your important insights and astute analysis, from which we can all benefit. Very inspiring and meaningful. Keep buzzing!07/07/2017 #16 Sara JacoboviciIn addition to what you have written @CityVP 🐝 Manjit, I am grateful that beBee has attracted you to this site and I get to meet, connect, learn from and engage with a person and mind such as yours. I rarely have regrets, but one is that I can not keep up with your posts. Thank goodness you are prolific. You write, "(... let us say it is my personal compass) where I want to be associated or linked or a part of organizations that is a magnet for magnificent minds." A trustworthy compass indeed." I appreciated all the metaphors and resources to books Manjit, that clearly communicate that @Javier 🐝 beBee, @Juan Imaz, and all the members of the beBee team are the REAL thing and bring life to the world of social media. You write, "Life is not a slogan or a marketing strategy it is a being."

All the points you made above are extremely truthful. I met others on Linkedin, I got to know many of those people on a different level on beBee- new friends who I know I could reach out to at any time if needed. I'd like to add, that you are correct about the other networks complimenting each other. I have found buzzes I miss on beBee due to it's constant and fast growth on other networks- Facebook and Twitter, in particular. I'd love others to know that if they need help boosting their personal brand, beBee is the place because there are so many including yourself (thank you) who are happy to help others succeed!

That is also the kind of leader I am shaping myself to be - and so I welcome this buzz as a manifesto of personal and professional value. I welcome the meaning in this and the making of a new mantra that transcends those that continue to focus on that 20th Century invention called marketing, dinosaurs who think they are relevant to the our century, a special interest group who continue to talk to us in marketing gibberish rather than as the best representatives of the human voice.
The best news of all the good Lord made it so that America is now being led by a personal branding marketer and so how is that currently working out for America? The 20th Century should not have been allowed to trump and spill its poor thinking into the first 20 years of our 21st Century, but it has. There is always hope that those that want the 21st Century will finally get a chance to live in a new renaissance age - less we listen to the message of tribal people, who keep beating their drums from the village and professional tribes they congregate in.

Williams (WINK )26/06/2017 #23 Rick DelmonicoTruth fluctuates everywhere we find it. So we must look beyond the information to the agenda, there is always an agenda. The agenda is tied to a belief system. Belief systems are filters. The purity of truth never survives these filters. Truth is the core of reality. As information, it has the most potential and the most symmetry. Self organization occurs at the boundaries of chaotic systems. The outer boundary has the most variation or degrees of freedom, and the least significance, in terms of meaning.26/06/2017 #22 Rick DelmonicoInformation is a difference that makes a difference. Understanding is life, islands of order in a sea of chaos. Perception creates division. The engine is imagination and the fuel is novelty. Innocence is unfiltered perception. We live in the shadows of perception where all belief systems are filters. Meaning is created through this process. In order to create meaning something must be consumed. Light pierces the darkness and is consumed, truth pierces the chaos and is consumed. The universe behaves more like a song than an equation. How can location exist in a song? We can give behaviors location, beyond that we cannot say.26/06/2017 #20 Susan 🐝 Botello@Lyon Brave Thanks for an awesome mention of my passionate work and myself.

I love that you shared the "trail" that lead to us and to you being inspired through my work to take the opportunity to make a film with your smartphone. I am inspired by your words and am hopeful that you will make a film which we can include in our global film festival next year and that through the red carpet we can both meet in person as you connect to a global community of mobile filmmakers who may even be friends you have not yet met. I can't wait to meet you and see your film! beBee is awesome...and so are you!

" It helps me to see I don't have to be a product of my environment. I can be a product of my future. In my future, I am a success story. I overcame all obstacles."
This realization is the foundation of all sorts of miraculous opportunities.
Stepping out of our past, the habits of mind it created, is both a continuing process and a single, momentous occurrence that can delineate the past BC/AD style.
I sincerely have a feeling of deja vu when I think of saying sometime soon, I knew her when.....

Comments25/05/2017 #44 Jim MurrayI'm with @Robert Cormack and @Phil Friedman. The whole idea of re-inventing yourself kinda smacks of a bit of self-loathing. Plus I'm not sure that it's even possible. Being all that you can be by putting out the best thoughts you have is all that can be expected of anyone. If you do that consistently, you will see that a certain number of people will pick up on that, and a whole lot won't. But it's not a zero sum game. It's just a game that moves at the speed of life. Patience, persistence and hard work are what's required. People will form their own impressions of you that will make your brand what it is. Some things can't be engineered but have to happen organically. The development of a strong persona or brand, is one of them.15/05/2017 #42 Larry Boyer, 🐝 Brand AmbassadorThe theme I really like is about developing an "integrated online presence". If you truly have a strong personal brand you have an integrated presence and you exude that same brand everywhere you are. I also love that beBee recognizes different platforms for difference purposes. It's important to have a primary hub to operate from and use the others to augment. beBee has set itself up to be that hub.13/05/2017 #40 Tausif MundrawalaIt takes a lifetime to reinvent oneself and another lifetime to reach to the right people. I have always believed in the mission of beBee an affinity based platform that it made me more humble and an approachable bee. Here I could remember all my friends and their friends through common interests and mind stimulating buzzes. A great way to start networking would be to approach people and make them realize how unique they are as they have spent years polishing themselves. Being emphatic and always ready to learn from others are few aspects which helps us forge long lasting friendship. You have always equally respected your bees , our own king bee,@Javier 🐝 beBee13/05/2017 #38 Preston 🐝 Vander VenGreat Buzz. I remember once being told that if I go through " I know someone who knows someone..." seven times, I will reach everyone in the world. That is the really power of networking. I don't know everyone, yet by connect to enough bees and building relationships to someone who knows someone who knows someone who knows someone, I now do.
A great example is someone the great bees whom have shared my honey on this site on down this to other social sites like Twitter. I looked on their site, and they had over 55,000 followers. Then my post was re-tweeted a few times. If I was to reach that amount of people by email one by one, it would take a lifetime.
Networking is a Team effort and everyone wins.13/05/2017 #33 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorBefore re-inventing, comes creating oneself. Take your time, breath deeply, write about it 20 minutes a day, the whole week long. Brainstorm with peers and ask them how they see you. takes notes, some expressions might be precious and uselful in your (numerous)baselines on your differents social media accounts.
Segment who you want to connect with and make them your targets - primary (40%)- secondary(20%) - others (combined %).
Launch your branding campaign 1)objective 1 - get to be exposed 2)get to be known for at least 3 useful reasons to be engaged with !
At for the road. Do not ever give up !13/05/2017 #32 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador#26 @Pamela 🐝 Williams of course u are right 100%. Anyone with good will & intents, can re-invent herself/himself. Only people with no talent at all or no imagination , with like almost zero skills cannot be -1) creative -2)inventive -3)positive , cannot reinvent themselves .
BeBee branding tool ? certainly yes ! LinkedIn branding tool yes ! facebook branding tool, etc...yes+ yes +yes.
Branding belongs to Marketing. And marketing are sciences & tools. believe in yourself matters, more than opinions. Opinion is not branding. Opinion deals with a)positive ones =popularity b)negative ones = claims & continuous detractors.13/05/2017 #31 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorWhile old school is still using sollicitation in a marketing exhausting PUSH strategy.

LinkedIn is necessary to feed the results and give something to snack for recruiters. They are doing their job. Screening you. If you are not prepared of have put together a solid branding, portfolio, showcases, all the sections in fact (for that LI is really well built) you just do not interact with the very same purpose why you are on LI. Getting hired ! It will remain, i humbly think the largest recruitment database in the world. LinkedIn pulse is a sub-product and will be very useful if you have something to say, or write. Now LinkedIn demonstrated that it is not a free , nor an open platform, it is meant for business & recruiting. You want to get visibility in from HR people, pay for it ! Brand building has a cost. And everyone should consider that...budgeting. So Brand Building, isnt free of efforts, knowledge, skills, and..costs.
beBee would be a better version tool to give the opportunity to see how we behave online, what do we post, what do we lead as constructive & proactive initiatives. I was 23d LinkedIn influencer in my country, now that i use beBee, i have daily offers and it doesn't mind where i stand in terms of ranking or views or followers.What matters is that beBee changed the game: ENGAGEMENT with serious motivated hiring managers, project holders, investors, peers & new team mates. affiliates, business developpers...and this all over the world.13/05/2017 #29 Robert CormackWe should all be a little careful about "reinventing ourselves." I see posts that are obviously influenced by something they read here. Being influenced, being inspired is fantastic. Just remember that writing like them, or taking on the same topics isn't reinventing yourself. Always be you. Everyone else is taken.13/05/2017 #28 Phil Friedman#26 Pamela, FWIW, I personally do not think your comment is off-topic at all. I just don't believe in reinventing oneself, when it comes to "branding". Indeed, I don't believe in inventing yourself in the first place. Or your "brand". I personally believe a brand develops and grows, and that you can nurture it and cultivate it, but you cannot create it. At least, not if the term "authenticity" means anything when it comes to branding. Cheers!13/05/2017 #26 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsMaybe this is off-topic but another great asset of social media and networking is broadening your horizons, taking paths you might not have considered had it not been for the inspiration of your network. In other words; looking at yourself in a entirely new way. I know because that is what beBee has done for me. If you're not thrilled with your brand then watch, listen, observe, bee inspired and reinvent yourself

One of those being social interaction. I'm still learning my way through multicultural interaction on a platform like this one. My heart will always be one of redemption. I will do my best to keep my honey sweet!15/06/2017 #36 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsHi @Nic Fester Congratulations and welcome to the Why beBee hive.

Thank you. I love this paragraph
"beBee is 100% responsible for my enthusiasm for blogging. I have loved the engagement. Not for one moment have I ever felt like I'm blogging in the wilderness. I have experienced proper engagement on this platform. I for the most part have loved the reality of connecting with people from across the globe on a wide scope of topics. All I can say is that I've been enriched on many levels. "14/06/2017 #32 Irene 🐝 Rodriguez EscolarCongratulations, I share your feelings, immensely grateful and clear that can help. Tell us.

- Producer15/06/2017Linked In vs. Bebee = Potatoes vs. ApplesThe other day I saw a post by Jeffrey Strickland at Linked In, on which he was giving his reasons to stay there instead of moving to Bebee. In his words “I have heard the bad hype about LinkedIn and the good publicity regarding Bebee, but there are...
Comments19/06/2017 #6 Deb 🐝 HelfrichI concur with just about everything you've said, @David Navarro López. LI is B2B and beBee is H2H - human to human. Business is all about numbers, statistics, ROI.
Building a relationship with a human always presents a complex opportunity for an outcome so great, we cannot cross off tasks and track milestones on our way to establishing camaraderie and trust.
beBee is where I come to meet and converse with other humans, with an eye toward attracting professional opportunities. LI is where I go to broaden my professional network and occasionally meet another human heart and mind.
I look forward to contributing to the day when beBee reaches the tipping point where the membership reach is equivalent.16/06/2017 #5 Anonymous#4 It seems to me that the only think that counts nowadays by LI is the numbers...and they have forgotten that we are not numbers, we are persons.
If it was a FB thing, then I wouldn't care. There, you have "friends" you did not see for 20 years, they find you and ask for friendship, and there you go. But is just for fun. LI was supposed, as you point out, a "professional thing". But is becoming worse than FB, as it is losing its purpose.15/06/2017 #4 Bengt HahlinHi David,
I have kept my LinkedIn profile but do most of the interaction here on beBee. And I have come to the same conclusion as you. I have done the same experiment on both platforms (both buzz/updates and producer/articles). Same result –much more response/interaction on beBee.
And It is really sad what is happening with LinkedIn. It used to be one step forward and two step backwards. I.E LI had a feature/function that you really liked and was very useful and then some time later, you login and it has gone, or changed to something not very useful for you. And as always with no warning whatsoever or explanation why.
With the latest changes, it is more like one foot forward and five steps backwards.
The general problem seems to be that LinkedIn decision makers are for the most part, completely stone deaf to their customer’s complaints and ideas. How is that for a strategy of “building” the World's “Largest Professional Network”?
As for their future vision, judging what they have been actually doing, it is very hard to see what that “vision” is. They take away things, then change others, then partly change back just to take it away again etc. They are all over the place at the same time, zigzagging so you never know what is going to happen next. Not very reassuring.
What is also very strange is this accelerated “war” on the desktop, which this is just the latest example. In many cases, it seems like a race of dumbing down to the lowest common denominator. Very sad and very unprofessional
LinkedIn top management has to really wise up or this is going to end badly. It is no point for us the customers in putting in so much effort and time, when LinkedIn top management does not care about our needs and opinions.
So I think this bodes well for beBee. Keep the honey flowing.

Comments19/07/2017 #73 Preston 🐝 Vander Ven@Charlene Norman I too, have the same experience. I still post on the other networks, I just don't invest my time there. It is to important. I feel much of the marketing potential of these sites has already become saturated as the way MySpace did years ago. But, who knows someone may still find my contents. Yet, if I am going to create relationship with people, I am going to do it on a site that that is growing, not one that is declining. beBee is that place.19/07/2017 #71 Charlene Norman@Matt 🐝 Sweetwood @Jan 🐝 Barbosa @Wayne White @Jordan Sands @Debasish Majumder @Luis Piriz Thank you all. BeBEE is a unique world. You meet the nicest most decent people here. With some very interesting things to say. And 99.9% of them actually get along. Darn near perfect. What is not to like?19/07/2017 #70 Wayne WhiteGood day, I see the same thing, with LinkedIn it seems that I have fewer people viewing my articles than on Bebee. On average with most of my articles, I post to LinkedIn, Bebee, Recruiting Blog, Wordpress.com, and one or two others, the views or stats with Bebee shows that more people look at what I am writing. At one point I felt that I was writing things that don't interest most job seekers. Now with Bebee, I feel that I am reaching liked mind job seekers and recruiters. I shall say what you wrote help me understand how it really works, thank you and have a nice day.19/07/2017 #65 Debasish Majumderwonderful buzz@Charlene Norman! enjoyed read and shared. thank you for your affinity making buzz, unlike professional, yet, not mere entertaining, but also containing prophecy which will surely going to be true in future in terms of beBee thrive. thank you for the buzz.19/07/2017 #61 Javier 🐝 beBeethank you so much @Charlene Norman. Your words help me to go on working hard. Great things to come !
This is to be proud of our bees.
"In fact, it feels even BETTER than the good old days of LinkedIn. It is fun, personal, professional, trusting, entertaining, polite, wise-cracking, respectful, helpful, personable, thought-provoking, humane and intellectual all rolled up into a beautiful yellow hug. BeBee is where everyone can just Be."
thank you14/06/2017 #58 Jeanette JOY FisherWhat is BeBee Express?
I'm going to do this post test on BeBee, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter links to blog, and my Instagram accounts and let you know how it turns out.
I always thought BeBee was a hookup site. I believe most social media marketers just don't understand how BeBee works. Perhaps I can save the $49 monthly Linkedin charge.
Love, JOY!13/06/2017 #56 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsHi @Charlene Norman
Welcome to beBeeland. 🐝🐝🐝🤗🤗🤗🐝🐝
Its going to be about 2 years with beBee and the journey is amazing. For me beBee is about people not about likes, relevants etc its about engagement and what one took away from the discussion which will be remembered for a very very long time.
I just read Jim's post and headed over to connect with you. This is exactly the way we get meet authentic and passionate individuals and there always something to learn from such engagements.

Comments08/06/2017 #41 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#40 With the exception that the guys didn't look like you, after reading your buzzes and talking to them I had a feeling many of you are full of it. They asked me if I was a foodie since I had so many questions and seemed to understand a bit. He did call himself the Executive Chef, I couldn't remember and I knew Head Chef didn't sound right. I will check out your page. I need to update mine eventually. Not a lot has changed though. Thanks!08/06/2017 #40 Randall Burns#39 Nice @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher Yep sounds like a couple of Chefs to me, yes we are "full of it", "Head Chef" is a used term, along with "Executive Chef", "Chef de Cuisine", (or just "Chef"), other positions, different ranks, in the kitchen, Commis, Demi Chef, Chef de Partie, Sous Chef, Station Chef, etc.
I have just updated my profile page, (finally), with my work experience, check it out when you have some time, you'll see some of the different positions.08/06/2017 #39 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#38 That's awesome Paul! Let me know when it's available. I like the idea of meal plans too! PS: @Randall Burns, I was taking pics tonight from the 27th floor at the Hyatt Regency and I kept hearing 2 guys next me mentioning "look at the shots 'she's getting.' Then....... one guy said, hey can you get a pic of both of us and label it "Two Chefs from Denver?" They were serious, haha. I did take 3 shots. I thought of you because they seemed so carefree and well.. full of it ;-) The head Chef.. not sure if that's the term has also been well traveled like you, he even worked over in Italy.07/06/2017 #33 Lisa 🐝 GallagherWow @Randall Burns, I'm glad I had time to check in tonight. We are still in Colorado... left last monday (road trip) and I'm just catching my breath now, LOL. Just in time to leave to drive 1600 miles back home on Saturday. Thanks for the mention, so glad you stayed, it would get quite boring without your praise LOL!!! Congrats on being named an Ambassador.
