    #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.

    How would you instruct your daughter if she was hell bent on personal branding as a viable option? (I had to answer this question, while having a similar viewpoint. So would really like to hear your advice. You can't cop out here, you have to give good advice to a 27 year old daughter that is going to take the path anyway. Thought i would add a little pressure. All in jest, but would like to hear your conversation.) A hint mine started with AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, well, long silence, i'll get back to you.

    Thank 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.

    I 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.

    #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.

    It allows our senses to mingle with the feel-good factor which we otherwise have forgotten about it's existence. That feel-good factor gives a huge high to our confidence and the feeling of that joy is indescribable. Even me being a creative person I love playing with resources available. One of the instance which I could remember is of an auspicious night where my brother bought a huge basket of lillies to decorate our house. Majority went with a string but I with my creative energy took the matter in my hand by decorating it in a unique way. I tried highlighting the shape and size of those exquisite and fragrant beings with the help of sellotape.

    You helped me unleash my creative juices where I sometimes try my level best to hide from others. Thanks for this wonderful gift, @Anel Marx

    #6 Failure is normal Lisa until that is we make it abnormal through personal branding and social judgement. The key part that I focus on from Anel's comment is trial and error, process shapes end result therefore trust the process, also as she says the moments that surprise us and thus being more open to this surprise and delight. I too enjoy the learning that comes from failure and I really do like most of all Anel's closing - progress not perfection. In a world that is tailor made for prejudice, creativity is the get out of social jail card and failure is also a great friend of creative response. We should not separate success and failure unless our desire is to live an abnormal existence, outside of that abnormality we will point failure as abnormal, but inside of us is where this abnormal existence becomes abnormal. It is our own soul that knows what is whole and what has become cultural prejudice.

    If there is not a renaissance in humanity with the promise of what may well have been a mythical "golden age", the renaissance in craft is huge, it is here and this buzz is exemplary of it. What matters here above the elements of creativity is the re-emergence of craft, that was particularly curtailed by the industrial age. This craft is detailed here as a personal story and it is also prevalent in the rise of D.I.Y. practices. Today it is expanding with the arrival of sexy new technologies like 3D Printing, but the essence of it is the same energy and purpose described by Anel Marx. Beyond what gets shared at Pinterest, there is digital scaling of craft through places like Etsy https://www.fastcodesign.com/3042352/how-one-knitter-makes-almost-1-million-a-year-on-etsy

    While one might not see the connection between sowing and hand-crafts and 3D printing, the bigger connection of this craft revival (helped also by instructional videos on you-tube) is the rise of the "maker movement" http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brit-morin/what-is-the-maker-movemen_b_3201977.html and once people are a part of this maker culture, they can combine resources and scale.

    This element of creativity is one of the most positive effects of the rise of the Internet, and to keep focusing on what we have lost through internet and mobile communications, does a great disservice to those whose value now can be seen as they share their love of crafts, as is being shared here and recognizing that as the fastco article shows, this is not just a hobby anymore, it is a whole community, as well as new paths manufacturing and the return of the hand as a symbol of being human. I love this as much as I detest the mentality of focusing only on personal brand. This should be what the greater spirit of beBee should be about.
