The 2016 You Rock Awards

The 2016 You Rock Awards

These especially helpful friends earned a You Rock award

Every Thanksgiving, I think about the especially helpful people in my network and thank them for their generosity. I respect and value their knowledge, advice and comments. This year, I have seven outstanding people receiving this award. And - for the first time - my award goes to some international friends in my growing network.

John White is a columnist at Inc. Magazine. I met John about a year ago through his blog posts and featured articles on Pulse. He has an outstanding social media presence, and is a perfect fit for beBee’s very first Ambassador.


Javier Camara Rica ("Javier beBee") is a co-founder of beBee. He is the “product guy”at beBee and talks the talk when he says he has a passion for beBee and networking.


Federico Álvarez San Martín is the quality and affinity manager at beBee. He never sleeps and often helps Bees even while on vacation. He is an excellent example of the passion and dedication of the beBee Hq. staff.


Paul "Pablo" Croubalian says he is a “Ghost, the writing kind, not the kind that's into pottery wheels.” He is a prolific writer covering many topics, from cooking, career management and social media.


Juan Imaz is a co-founder and executive chairman of beBee. Juan is a serial entrepreneur and investor with over 22 years of business management in digital marketing and online services.


Jim Murray is the owner and creative director of Onwords & Upwords Inc., a creative consultancy. Jim’s stories are always informative and interesting. As an “ad guy” he often does the right thing by instinct.


Phil Friedman is a writer, editor, marketer and marine industry consultant. I always look forward to Phil’s stories and comments. He is a great example of drawing meaningful and intelligent discussions about a wide variety of topics.

#11 Wayne, I agree. It is so important to take the time to thank those who impact our lives. Thank you for sharing that story. My daughter has a teacher who is transforming her life and interest in history. I am sure the teacher has no idea that at least one of her students comes home everyday excited enough about what she has learned to share it with her family.

#5 Hi Michele - thanks for your comment -- it's interesting / disappointing to see - at least in my area -- all shops skipping Thanksgiving - all places are promoting Christmas, several weeks before Halloween. I am not sure I like this trend. How can anyone forget Thanksgiving? (in the USA....)

This award thing was inspired by a reunion I had with one of my very early elementary school teachers. She was so grateful when I thanked her for her inspiration and impact her "science time" had in my life and career. I made her cry (in a good way...)

Too often, teachers never hear what happened to their students - I thought it was good to let her know these little lessons got through to me and changed my life so much.
