What do you do
What gives you authority and credibility

These are also underpinned with some “secret source”

It wants me to develop a Personal Brand.
It got me started without it.
I was immediately embraced as a person with a blank profile, based purely on content, which expressed an idea, not me entirely.
As a buzzword, personal branding allowed people to accept my honesty, which was earlier rejected ofr incompetence.
Personally, i think Personal Branding is a good handshake, a good first impression. Still, i did not find it necessary for bebee.
The interactions were organic, relevant, informative and relevant.19/10/2017 #9 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorI love the 5 points takeaway, I would add that you also have to control or at least attempt your visuals, maybe we will have soon a post on that topic with the excellent awarded photographer @Jamie Robert House >>> https://www.facebook.com/gentleman.house

Nature is stunning but it is also often utterly destroyed like for plantations in Kalimantan. Human culture is surprisingly diverse with a not so overwhelming veneer of Islam. Coming from Japan, what I would be missing is the high tech buzz of Tokyo where I work for example. I know I would lose cleanliness but that it would be replaced with kindness. But it is indeed a vast country so if your point is to say that I am missing a lot, I can concede it readily. Now, about coming to Indonesia to change my mind... ;-)15/10/2017 #25 Nicole Leigh West"The spectacular landscapes dotted with majestic mountains peppered with volcanoes whose sole purpose seems to be to try and reach up and touch a sky, delicious with stars. Indonesia has the ability to seduce and, when one has succumbed to her charms she will call like a plaintive siren from the sea each time you try and leave her." Seriously? Would that I had written it. It's exactly how I feel about it, without knowing it. Riveting, emotive words @Paul Walters14/10/2017 #15 CityVP 🐝 ManjitInteresting point you made about the respect for age in Indonesia compared to the orderly "geriatric-hotels" created in the West for people who are considered past their sell-by-date in the West. I also do find the topography of so many islands in Indonesia to be an interesting cultural facet of Indonesia. The passion you personally have shines through on the page, that is perhaps a greater testimony because you do make places come alive, even to the point where a part of us wonder why we are not making the same choices you have!

Comments20/10/2017 #4 Lisa VanderburgExceptional buzz that raises conflicting answers in me @Geoff Hudson-Searle! I'll try and clarify. Okay, so what is truth? Is it something tactile, sensory? No, we know the element of truth is not simply contained in such limited boundaries. We know love, but even though there are biological markers for attraction or arousal, love can't be quantified either. Faith; how about that? We know faith because we believe in things like...love and truth, for example.
Personally, I don't know myself...not really. I might know there are predictors particular to me but they don't become truth unless tested. To say I am certain of anything outside of my faith in a Creator that is not confined to space and time would be untrue. Maybe we know too much. Maybe not enough; either way, our lives are simply too short (mine, too chaotic) to put fully into use what I have learned. Does not mean you haven't though!19/10/2017 #2 Harvey LloydLove is a spiritual word, mythical if you will. Science can't explain it, but society longs for it in many variations. The statistics are not surprising since the questions asked could only, probably only questions of material world processes/physical. Love is not something the material world can grasp or explore because as your final quote stated, love has nothing to offer the material world but a smile of a child.
It is difficult to find peace in a world that measured materially rather than spiritually. The competitive nature of man is unleashed when materialism is at the front. The compassion of man is released only when love is genuine and is motivated spiritually.
It is difficult to have a foot in both worlds/concepts. The truth is relative to the world in which you choose to live. The material world requires fake news to feed the material fire of progress. Fake news destroys our love and spiritual realm in creating cognitive dissonance, because we attempt to survive in both.

Comments20/10/2017 #13 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMAIn todays competitive world it's best to develop a product, or business, which serves a niche. From there you market your niche product to your unique audience. To overcome the issue of offering too much and confusing customers, it's smart to 'niche down'. Meaning creating products which are helpful to your original product, which add to it's ease of use, for example. Thanks for another valuable post, Ali.20/10/2017 #12 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#9 you are observant @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. Yes, sterssing self and the customer is not the way to sell. In fact it is an assured way not to sell. Besides, going into technical details violates two simple facts. First it does not answer what is in it for me? Second, people buy holes and not drills. And third acttually people don't like to deal with people who try to force them to take decisions.
It is simplicity that may lead to successful selling20/10/2017 #11 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#8 @Jerry Fletcher- this is a great comment and is like a read map. I often say that sales and marketing are like my eyes. One eye is short-sighted while the other is long-sighted. The first eye is my marketing eye and the short-ranged one is my sales eye. I recalled this because of what you wrote "Too often, marketing professionals get too close to their own ideas to see the differences and how the audience is reacting". I love this and agree fully with you.20/10/2017 #9 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#4 Someone close to me used to work for Salesforce and their name fits them well. They are so sales driven, they burn out their employees/teams and expect them to keep pushing until they close the deal. Sadly, they lose clients with because they are relentless. They also lose good employees due to a high burn out rate. Simple is much better and so is trying to close a deal that works for the client as well- it's a compromise of sorts, it must be a win/win for both the client and the company who is selling a product. Great info graphics @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee19/10/2017 #8 Jerry FletcherAli, Marketing and sales are two different things. Yes they occur within the context of someone moving from prospect to customer but the same models do not apply at the level of sophistication you are addressing. The AIDA model was developed in the direct marketing arena which is one of the few places where sales and marketing are attempted at the same time. Today, online marketing is taking on those aspects. Marketing is about knowing and understanding the needs, wants and desires of a target audience (the market) which, in simplest terms, has not yet purchased the product. Sales is about moving an individual that has been drawn in by marketing to make the purchase.
Too often, marketing professionals get too close to their own ideas to see the differences and how the audience is reacting. The process of each sale is different based primarily on price/value. People use less logic on the purchase of a candy bar than a new car. But, the emotional input into both sales may be equivalent. It all comes down to trust. Which brand marketing do you trust? Which option is clearly the one that matches your situation? Which solution solves your problem? Which sales person or process do you trust? Often it is the why of a product or service that is the differentiator. That's because we inherently trust those that can tell us the reason for a product/service's existence especially if there is an emotional connection to our situation.19/10/2017 #7 Harvey Lloyd#6 In most cases sales are in front of someone who has a need. The very first question they are asking is, can you fill the need? Technical detail don't answer the question, they merely obfuscate your answer in such a haystack it can't be found.
Yes anyone who has been involved in any sales knows that new customers are like courting. There are phases of development. The initial phases are asking some big questions that details cannot answer. When the engineering questions begin by the customer you have now rounded second base. Home Run is still a ways a away, but if the details show up on the run to first base, (First Date), go ahead and run to the bullpen, because you OUT.
Great post and brings back some memories of the old days. Cherished, but not missed.19/10/2017 #6 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#4 together your comment @Harvey Lloyd with that of @Edward Lewellen make a great buzz. Yes as people by delight and not pain. Your advise to keep salesforce away from technical teams is an awesome one. I found it useful thst the salesforce should try first to sell inhouse to ordinary staff. Who would buy pain? The pain of technical details will lead to failure.19/10/2017 #5 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#3 this is is what I call a prfect example ear @Edward Lewellen. You are write and we complicate things by selling what we know rather what the customer needs. Or, we use technical descriptions to put the cuser off.
In writing my buzzes I observed that the sjimpler they are, the more viewership they get. People are impatient with complications.19/10/2017 #4 Harvey LloydNever, ever, ever allow sales force to become part of the engineering team. This is was a hard lesson. Once the sales folks came into our estimating, contractual and accounting understanding their ability to sell became difficult. They carried an understanding of to many details from which they tried to sell.
The infamous words, sell the sizzle not the steak. Hold true in so many ways. The complexity of a product during the sales process should be displayed through benefit, outcomes and if applicable capital appreciation to the bottom line.
But i also believe so many folks have burnt by the sizzle as the steak was not as great as the noise, smell and visual. That they want to peek behind the marketing and see the real deal. So in sales and marketing, if you sell the sizzle be prepared to show folks the stove with the same sizzle.19/10/2017 #3 Edward LewellenDear @AliAnani, I observe so many people, including people whose profession is Marketing and Sales, who complicate their sales process by describing how they do what they do, rather than the results they derive from what they do.I recently placed an ad in an upscale magazine. The first proof i was sent was horrid. It onlt described my process and whp wants to buy that?!! I rewrote the ad with the results I get and it was much better received, even by the person who wrote the first proof.
By over complicating the description, they would have raised more questions than they answered, causing confusion, lack of interest, and no response.19/10/2017 #2 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#1 You are right @Mohammed A. Jawad. When companies diversify quickly and in different directions they perplex the consumer. People don't have time to sort out many alternatives and get confused which one to select. More, if they don't understand the product such as some offers from financial institutions.

@Harvey Lloyd; That is a rough road to travel; I miss my grandfather every day but I wouldn't bring him back to what he had to go through; it wasn't him, just his body.18/10/2017 #11 Harvey LloydI am approaching that vision of there isn't as much time left as is behind. I am on the back nine of life. More of my family and friends are hearing the doorbell ring of life's health challenges. I know the natural process of life and death are a part of our existence, but to make sense of it is quite another thing. I only know my own experiences and can reflect them.
One in particular was my mother-in-law. Dementia took her down a dreadful path. There was no plug to pull or considered. But i know the family gathered around her and supported her existence and made her feel at home for more than three years. I am sure if we look at her and try and find dignity within that three years we wouldn't find it.
But through her experience and the family's belief in supporting one another we witnessed to so many people the dignity of family and the courage to engage with one another even in the toughest of times. The notes and comments my wife got from staff, other families who had loved ones in the facility, told me we impacted the way families see each other, the way staff treated patients in these types of facilities.
My Mother-in-laws challenging walk home was a shared experience that impacted others, she witnessed through us to people who had lost hope in humanity.
The process of going home is never an easy journey, but we have the opportunity to show others that this journey is guaranteed and that no matter the labels love does conquer the feelings of death, and celebrates the many people who are touched by the person's life.
I don't remember my mother-in-laws road but rather here life and those she impacted both in living and dieing. I Too hope i can have the courage to the end to share life with others, regardless of how rough the road gets.18/10/2017 #7 AnonymousBut then, one Day, you're tired of even being mad and you say well Hell is already here, can we ever turn this bountiful Earth into Heaven?

So metoo, and I'm ready to live in an igloo.

About the feeling of being uncomfortable being uncomfortable, my ideas are different from those of the rest therefore perhaps undervalued, respectful, that is why I defend them and I go on, I am walking against the current, therefore uncomfortable perhaps, to the rest that wants to make me change my mind (I hope the translator behaves well)17/10/2017 #11 David B. GrinbergThank you, Javier, for such an uplifting and inspirational blogging buzz filled with awesome advice! This post is a like a success "cheat sheet" per se, which readers should consider printing out and and reviewing regularly. You include so many powerful points for serious consideration and implementation. In fact, many studies show that positive people are not only happier, but healthier too!
Personally, I think the most challenging point -- at least for me -- is #2 "You have to feel comfortable with being uncomfortable." Well, one might ask, how does that work? I would say the more one adopts and repeats an initially uncomfortable behavior, habit or trait, the more comfortable one incrementally becomes with it. However, it's the initial adoption and repetition which strikes me as the hardest part. I would welcome any further advice you might have on mastering this principle.
Lastly, I've always prided myself on being a positive thinker -- especially during challenging times. I would note that it's just as easy to think positively as negatively, to see the proverbial glass half full rather than half empty. Yet this is an "acquired taste" for many people. Therefore, I suggest reading the late Rev. Norman Vincent Peale, informally known as the godfather of positive thinking. His timeless words of wisdom can help anyone become less negative and more positive. Check him out:

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.

Thank you for your comment and kind share.16/10/2017 #34 Harvey Lloyd#18 Being of what i think is your generation i do see similarities in the school of thought from yesteryear. I would also think that similar concepts were considered as we transferred from letter writing to phone calls to fax machines. It seems that each time we make a technological leap in communications we develop new ways to do similar things. Gutenberg started this mess.
Specifically in this case the "personal brand". I sense that this is the new generational prospects of the resume, differentiating one's self from the herd. This is a game that as more differentiated the more they become the same. I thought our generation's rejection of "the man" was interesting as we embraced our own rules and became "the man". We got what we wanted.
Technology comes with both ends of the spectrum, the good and the bad, as you and Phil discussed. I believe the personal branding label is here to stay for a while. I would be more interested in hearing your thoughts on personal brand going forward.

It takes a lot of time to understand and build on this concept. Thanks to beBee I can now learn from the best. :-)

It is this point of limited information or not having enough information is what I am trying to cover. Raising awareness about the concept by sharing my story and how it benefitted me.16/10/2017 #23 Proma 🐝 NautiyalThank you for your comment, @Harvey Lloyd. You are right about not mixing up social and professional brands together, as they are what personal brand is a product of. People often don't see the thin line between the two spaces. I let myself merge the two, multiple times, but I always remember not to share my personal/social opinions in my work space. That is nothing but detrimental. This is a very strong point and I truly appreciate it.16/10/2017 #22 Harvey LloydI can only speak for myself but personal branding seems a little selfish in its definition. Who am i to place myself out there in some formal way while expecting others to enjoy the brand? I have since come to understand that the word brand has morphed into a broader definition than my generation gave.
I would say that personal branding as i understand it would be better served if it were stated as professional branding and social branding. The two are quite different. In my professional life i socialize within a purpose and a team. Where my social branding is for me personally to share journeys and gain wisdom. The former i don't have much control over in the who may show up as a customer, employee or vendor, it's based on the purpose/need.
My social brand is where i control who i socialize with and gain wisdom from. Two very different scenarios. I am not a fan of merging the two in my determining professional associations. Labels have separated us and i believe is becoming a segregation of professionals.
I believe true professionals who operate in a team environment can leave their social opinions in the car before they approach work. The Team, The Purpose accompanied by Goals are the focus. Certainly our social opinions should drive our decisions and choices but they are not to be used to pigeon hole another team mate in a right wrong discussion.
Within a team the diversity of opinions from , christians, muslims, democrats, republicans, cultures and atheists can all be heard and presented as part of the success. I may not be able to socially agree with your beliefs, but in the professional world i don't have too, i need you to "apply" your beliefs and strategies towards the purpose and the goal. I don't sell my social within a professional environment.
Selling your social agenda here is a good way to extend your career into another job atmosphere.16/10/2017 #20 Proma 🐝 Nautiyal#15 @Devesh 🐝 Bhatt I read your buzz, thank you so much for your kind mention. However, I am unable to comment there, I have written it down on a word file and will try again in sometime. Till then, please let me know if you can see my comment on your buzz, I had hit comment almost 10 times, hope it is not appearing there, 10 times. :-)16/10/2017 #19 Proma 🐝 Nautiyal#18 Sir, @CityVP 🐝 Manjit, I understand your point. You are against people being used as resources. Which is absolutely fine. The nomenclature makes the concept seem wrong. It is up to us to make it right. We need to be resourceful, instead of just being a resource. And to be resourceful we need knowledge, power, confidence which will come from more exposure. It is this exposure that I wish everyone has. Instead of working their daily jobs, people should invest in their personal growth.
My entire buzz is trying to help people come out of the mindset of depending on one constant. Valuing themselves more, as each and every one of us houses way more potential than what we give ourselves credit for.
Society has an ugly way of snubbing down every unique idea or a new thought. I want people to uphold theirs without any inhibitions.

Best regards.16/10/2017 #4 Nathaniel Schooler 🛩 Brand Marketer#1 Hi @Proma 🐝 Nautiyal I did see your blog, but rather than addressing the very good points you make in it decided to share this as it addresses most of the reasons people need to brand themselves. Building your personal brand is something that is achieved through hard work and taking the time to share with the world a few different elements.
1) What do you do (in words people understand)
2) What gives you authority and credibility in your marketplace
3) Why are you different and or better than anyone else
If you can answer these elements in enough detail then you will be at the beginning of building a personal brand as you now need to put them into words that resonate with your audience and add some magic sauce ;-)16/10/2017 #1 Proma 🐝 NautiyalWhat an empowering buzz on personal branding, @Nathaniel Schooler 🛩 Brand Marketer! I really like reading your buzzes and following your live videos. I am often asked "Why Personal Branding?" This buzz will be an excellent share to help address their questions regarding personal branding.
I recently wrote a buzz on "Why Embracing Personal Branding Seems So Difficult To Many? (And How to Overcome it)", it would be great if you could give it a read and let me know what you think of it and if there is anything that I have missed and should address to build on my personal branding efforts. Tagging you on my buzz. Thank you!

Regards! Close18/10/2017 #81 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMAYou have once again written an article which stimulates the thoughts and ideas of many. A topic infrequently touched upon. And while I have no unique words of wisdom as many who have commented here, do, I remind everyone of the following practical scenario - allowing children to discover how to deal with the changes life often forces upon us by finding them a part-time job when they're young. It can expose them to a variety of simple problems and changes they can learn to deal with and build their confidence as they grow.
Your post also reminded me of a situation I encountered after college. I attended an expensive private high school my parents worked hard to scrape together the money (while I cleaned houses and baby stay to help out) in order to attend. 5 years after graduation I'm shopping in an outlet store, with a friend, only to discover a young woman, tops in our high school class who graduated 'magna cum laude from college, working as a 'checker/bagger' there. I was beyond shocked but didn't question her. However I did discover from a friend this woman was unable to cope with the trials and tribulations of working. She was incapable of moving up to a management position, or other position which could provide a better living and life. One point was she disliked rules and following them; yet she wasn't a leader or one who might create them. And, quite frankly, she had no desire too I also discovered. Now while it's certainly possible to move up from sweeper (or a bagger/checker at a grocery store) to CEO, some - like the woman I mention here - likely was happiest, thriving in the controlled halls of education. Her parents, as with the man you mention in your post, were despondent when they discovered they'd spent all their money on an education for a daughter who continued to 'fail' according to their determination. All that said - there is always the "Peter Principle" - where people 'rise to their incompetence'.17/10/2017 #78 Vincenzo De FlorioRe: your kind question -- in a sense, I've replied already through my previous comment :) I think such topic would match very nicely with the themes of ANTIFRAGILE, and I would honored and very happy to have a paper from you for "my" little workshop. And should you like the idea, also to get involved with the organization of the workshop itself :)
Please let me know, dear friend @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee!
(2/2)17/10/2017 #77 Vincenzo De FlorioDear friend @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, thank you very much for so interesting a post, which I have appreciated very much! As you know, I'm very interested in resilience and antifragility. Often people consider the two qualities as one, corresponding to the ability to survive; But as you know very well, this is not true. There is a subtle, *systemic* difference between the two qualities: an antifragile system is able to learn from the experience. If it survives the experience in the first place, that is! And this is precisely what you identify here. Moreover, you suggest to "train" the antifragile system, proposing to "expose it gradually to conditions outside its comfort zone". This is definitely a strategy that makes sense and could (should) be applied to any antifragile system. Therefore e.g. Antifragile Communities should be exposed to "little crises" in order to temper themselves; and antifragile drones should be subjected to an increasingly harder set of environmental conditions in order to learn and get better without... crashing down! (1/2)17/10/2017 #75 Tausif MundrawalaWe should always put ourselves to the rigidest of test at every point of life. Life is very uncertain and it would always strike at the comforts on which one makes oneself a slave. We should see opportunities in all these uncomfortable circumstances. The strictness of my daddy directed me towards the habit of reading which initially I deplored. I now realize the benefits which it brings with each passing word. Everyday the ink of newspaper leaves an indelible strain on my hands and I always take pride in this color of intellect.
I can go on and on because this topic is a never ending process. Am awaiting your reply, Sir @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee17/10/2017 #73 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#71 If I had the power to distribute your comment worldwide @CityVP 🐝 Manjit I wouldn't hesitate for a moment. Just at least to absorb your line "...his expectations feel more like an added weight to his son". Why put heavy loads on our kids and then expect them to move fast or freely? How often we tend to forget the basics of life is an issue that amazes me.17/10/2017 #72 CityVP 🐝 ManjitA irregular heartbeat is a sign of a healthy heart, that is what makes life fractal. A regular heartbeat is the stuff of personal brand. http://reylab.bidmc.harvard.edu/tutorial/DFA/node7.html View moreA irregular heartbeat is a sign of a healthy heart, that is what makes life fractal. A regular heartbeat is the stuff of personal brand. http://reylab.bidmc.harvard.edu/tutorial/DFA/node7.html We have become really good at painting whitewash on existence and as we smoke the dope of painting life as success, we join in a collective failure to create unnecessary expectation and listen to the ownership society portray its view of life on the "have nots". Why should we expect anything different if the mentality promotes a certain view of life as being better than a more realistic appraisal of reality. Close17/10/2017 #71 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI wonder what the friend of yours would complain after the suicide of his son. Then he would yearn for him to be failure but a failure who is still alive especially those fathers who have talked to an overwhelmed son who is further condemned by the weight of expectations that the word "failure" brings and now live with a memory.
Shit happens to people and sometimes a tonne of shit, and this is another example of why the polished shine of personal branding is so personally offensive to me. Just because life is kind to a person and they sit in the privilege of what life has given, does not mean that life is shit-proof. Maybe the father who complained about his son needs another look in the mirror because his expectations feel more like an added weight to his son, especially if his son happened to read this online and that became the straw that broke the camels back.
It is called be on the receiving end of life and also a receiving end where shit happens. This shit can take many forms and in some cases people recover but in a few cases they do not. We tend to ignore this abject reality and socially we have got good at brushing "real life" under the carpet. That is until some poor soul writes something that opens up reality window and then for a moment we all rush in and applaud that truth - but we also go straight back into the language of success we use to cover this abject reality, because there is a reason we put this out of mind and out of sight in our own lives when we "can't handle the truth". That is a great movie line and when we preach success, we preach the movie of life, not actually live the reality of life.17/10/2017 #68 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#61 thank you @Jerry Fletcher for your analytical approach. You wrote "Those that are creative are denied the right to grow and develop way too often". You remind me of a real story. A student asked the teacher about a step in a chemical reaction and its driving force. The response was "it is like that. All you need to do is memorizing the steps". No wonder students quite often hate chemistry even though it is a highly interesting science. Not only we tend to block creativity, but also stop students from logical thinking.
