Managing Vs. Producing
Read the article and watch the video here: https://invinciblerobots.com/manager-producer/ If you run a business you know that you need to fulfill a lot of different roles. Sales, marketing, accounting, setting a strategy and vision, HR, product development, supply chain, legal, financing, etc. The younger the business, the more you have to do yourself. As the business grows, you start to offload the work to new hires. This process of working on your business is covered very well in the book “The E-Myth” that I talked about in the Favorite Business Books video. With all the different tasks that need to be completed every day, how can an entrepreneur manage time between producing and managing? In other words, when do you “get work done” and produce content and new products and how much time do you spend managing the business?

How To Stay Motivated
Sometimes I don’t want to work. I’m sure you’ve felt it too. It’s easy to get burned out, but even so work must be done, whether we feel motivated or not. Staying motivated can make a difference about how you feel about work, how quickly and how well the work gets done. In fact, it’s nearly midnight and I’m not very motivated to write a lot about this post, so I’ll let the video do the talking. So how do you stay motivated? I don’t think reading Instagram posts with motivational quotes is going to cut it. Here are some tips. What would you add? Watch the video here: https://invinciblerobots.com/staying-motivated/

Cost Vs. Value, Sunk Cost Vs. Opportunity Cost, Hunting Vs. Farming
Knowing the differences between cost, value, sunk costs and opportunity costs is vital to helping you make great financial decisions now and in the future. It’s a very common fallacy that the amount spent on product development means that product is worth what was spent. For example, if you step on a snooty person’s shoes, he may say something like “you just stepped on my fancy shoes. Those are worth $1,800!” What they mean is they paid $1,800. That doesn’t mean they’re worth $1,800. Or you may have paid $20,000 for a new car, but the moment you drove it off the lot, it’s value decreased to $18,000 and decreases every month, whether you drive it or not. This same mindset comes into play for entrepreneurs. A founder may say, “I spent $500,000 to build my company, so I won’t sell it for less.” Well, just because you spent that much, doesn’t mean it’s worth that. If you build something people don’t want, it may be worth nothing. Cost and value are completely different things. In this episode I discuss cost. In addition, I talk about subscription businesses, why they’re great and how the increase firm value. Visit https://invinciblerobots.com/cost-value/ to watch the video.
