Everything starts with a vision, a plan, and the willingness to get out and do whatever it takes to make a dream a reality. Is it easy? No? Is it worth it? If you don't quit. It's always worth it, one million percent. Marlo and Tara Anderson have been running Marlo's Backyard Barbecue in Mississippi for 10 years. Marlowe originally worked full-time driving a delivery and milk truck, but quit when he got positive feedback from the community. They've been in their current location for 8 years and recently purchased a trailer to reach more customers. The menu has been expanded to include healthier options such as tacos, nachos, and grilled fish, as well as barbecue, fried food, bake food, and short orders. To stay motivated, Marlo recommends prayer and never getting too comfortable with selling.

He was raised in Nicaragua, exposed to extreme poverty, and also had the fortune of being exposed to life in the United States traveling back and forth to both countries. After college, Patrick's career took him into the corporate world of banking where he learned the important lessons of understanding what you're selling and why it's important to believe in it. Back in December of 2017, Patrick was fired from his job as a CFO for a Restaurant Group. With only $500 to his name, rent due, his wife, 3 children at home, and one on the way, he was forced to figure out how to pull his family out of this financial abyss that was strangling his life. With no knowledge of how to build a trailer, Patrick simply figured all of it out and has now built it into the thriving empire of what's now become Trailer King Builders.
If you have ever been interested to see a group of business owners conduct a communal eye roll, bring up the topic of bonus and incentives. A few years ago we had a client who decided to reward their team from a banner year and forego distributing a substantial six-figure margin to himself and his partner. There was no expectation created for this one-off distribution. It was a $200,000 sum that would be distributed to around 25 employees… you can do the math. Not bad. The response? Crickets. Of the 25 employees, there was a thoughtful “thank you” from three, a casual “thank you” from a few more, and crickets from everyone else. To add insult to unexpected injury, the next day an employee came in and confessed, “I just got a job offer to go make $10k more per year and I don't know what to do…” Candidly, when calculating an employee's compensation, most owners in businesses with less than 50 employees have not considered the additional investment of bonus or incentive outlays. When the thought finally arrives the plan is usually built from a position of fear rather than a position of joy, celebration, and sharing. In other words, “What can I do to make these employees feel more valued so they don't leave!” Most owners wish to generously share in some of the margin that has been created over and above what has been budgeted for base compensation and commission. There is a chasm that exists that almost renders any over-and-above distribution as challenging at best, frustrating, and divisive at worst. Owners are forced to think of the business finances in terms of the net…what is left over after all responsibilities are payed out. Employees are often time locked in on the gross… the big numbers that come in at the top or total sales. An employee can do math in their head and determine the total sales of either their efforts, or the total sales of the company and think, “Well, look how much I generated for the business, and all I get is my base with a little extra (or sometimes no extra at all).” The owner looks at the math spelled out on the profit and loss statement, the cash balances in the bank account, and the budget of projected expenses and revenues for the coming year and thinks, “How in the world can we afford to pay out any additional and not be cash-strapped for the future?” It is a silent stalemate between owners and employees, top line and bottom line, perceptions, and expectations. How can employees see additional compensation as motivation and incentive, instead of seeing it as an expectation? How can owners see additional compensation as a budgeted item to be shared and joyfully extended, instead of seeing it as a fear-motivated mortgage that taxes future growth opportunities (remember, marginal cash is the prime fuel for future growth). Most owners desire and have motivation to extend extra-compensation to reward over-and-above effort and to show additional appreciation. There are however three primary negative motivations for the build-out and deployment of these plans that usually result in a lack of health and longevity. Owner guilt is where the owner feels unwarranted guilt for having access to the net income of the business while employees do not. What is often missed during boom times is that the owner must use a portion of the net to stack in reserves for when the business has negative net income and wants to continue employing personnel even though the business cannot “afford” it in a particular month of the year. Another negative motivation for deployment of extra-compensation plans is an owner's fear that an employee will leave. It is a crucial principle that all businesses be built to weather a valuable team member leaving the roster. A business will never be bulletproof from the handicap of losing great talent… but it can be prepared on how to respond. Businesses must be cautious about being held hostage by one highly valuable employee; it can damage morale and cash-strap a small business for future opportunities. A final negative motivation for extra-compensation plans are employee demands in a vacuum of understanding the full scope of the business finances. Financial literacy in a business is key to building consensus and understanding around incentive compensation and bonuses. A two step approach will aid employees in understanding the basics of business finances. The first of the two steps to financial literacy is communicating with all employees that a dollar is not a dollar because… A dollar out is always more than a dollar (think when you pay for a sandwich that costs $9.95…you will pay more than $9.95 with taxes, tip, delivery, time spent, etc.) A dollar in is always less than a dollar (think when you receive a payment for $9.95…you will send the majority of that $9.95 to other people before you get to keep what is left over) The second of the two steps to financial literacy is communicating with all employees that business finances are reviewed in a past, present, and future tense. The profit and loss statements and balance sheets reveal what has happened (past). The subdivided bank accounts and level two dashboards reveal what is happening (present). Simple budgets and pro formas give insight into what will happen in the future assuming the inputs hold true (future). Reminding employees that a significant part of financial literacy is assuming what may happen (future) and so not all hoped-for elements of compensation can be guaranteed. Communication of preparation, purpose and payout are the three priorities of creating an incentives program that can yield the hoped for results (notice the use of “can” and not “will”...there will continually be volatility around this issue). First, in communicating purpose, it is helpful to understand what these programs exist for. What is a bonus? Without being punchy or rude, a bonus is simply a bonus, a cherry on top, an unexpected treat, and added benefit that displays generosity. That's it. Bonuses should never be extended for baseline job role responsibilities, for showing up regularly and on time. It is not uncommon to overhear someone say, “Well, I've been here for 12 years, I should get…” You have been compensated fairly and regularly for 12 years, that is what you have received. A bonus is undeserved extra. No one should ever… ever expect a bonus and should never base any portion of their personal budget on an anticipated bonus. A bonus is a bonus. The purpose of incentive programs is to incite (same root) an action. Most compensation opportunities above base should have the spirit of an incentive compensation in contrast to bonus or “profit sharing” (btw, profit sharing can be a dangerous term, and in some states place the business in a vulnerable legal positon). What is the business trying to incite, to encourage, to stir up in addition to the baseline job roles and responsibilities? Incentive compensation carries an over-and-above idea of performance over-and-above the base job role. There are multiple ways to structure incentive compensation plans that all yield various outcomes. A few structures of notable mention are… A simple lump sum based on a percentage of an employees base salary based on hitting target profit Top line percentage of sales based on total volume Bottom line percentage of sales based on net income per sale after job costing Monthly or quarterly target incentives based on sales, or other measurable activities Regardless of the structure you decide, there are a few crucial questions to ask as you prepare for an incentive structure. What will be incentivized? How will it be tracked? What flexibility does the program have to adjust if it is counterproductive either to the team or to the business? How will the incentive dollars be set aside to ensure profitable payout? (i.e. subdivided bank account?) When and how will it be paid out? How will it be well-communicated when it is paid out to achieve the desired outcome? Every incentive payout should come with added communication both the celebrate the payout and to add a subtle reminder that this is over-and-above and you should cautiously budget your life based on this pay out. One final thought, all incentive structures should be considered to be subject to change at any time, and at least reviewed and updated annually. You are not required to be held hostage by a bad incentive compensation structure…it will not only ruin the business, but ruin opportunities for each employee. Don't allow the benefit of one to backfire and cause the detriment of many. Incentive structures can be a value add to a business and to a team IF it is well-communicated, held with open hands to adjust over time, and generously given and received.

Dr. Henry Mintzberg is one of the world's most highly regarded business theorists, having written more books -- 22-- than the Beatles produced #1 hits. He is an organization and management rock star. In his latest book, Understanding Organizations … Finally, Dr. Mintzberg likens running a company or non-profit to coaching a professional sports team: You wouldn't use the same tactics in football as you use in hockey or baseball. Yet many CEOs mistakenly take a one-size-fits-all approach to structuring their operations. After observing and advising organizations for more than five decades, Dr. Mintzberg concludes there are seven “species” of companies and philanthropic groups, each requiring a distinctive playbook. As Dr. Mintzberg explains to host and award-winning author Dean Rotbart, correctly identifying which type of company you own or work for is crucial to its sustainability and profitability.

This week, in episode 152, Jay Goltz, Liz Picarazzi, and Sarah Segal talk about the inherent conflicts between being an entrepreneur and being a CEO—and the different skill-sets each role requires. Does it make sense for the same person to do both jobs? Is being CEO even a full-time job? And when does it make sense to replace yourself as CEO? Liz says she's thought about it. Jay, not so much: “Could I have found somebody 10, 15, 20 years ago who was a better manager? Sure. But it just wasn't worth it.” Why not? “It's gonna cost you $250,000 a year,” Jay says. “Is it worth paying that?” Plus: Liz and Sarah talk about positioning a company to be acquired. And Sarah proposes a PR campaign for Liz's package bins right on the spot.

Known to medical researchers since the 1980s, LADA is just now beginning to be known to the general public. KICKASS HEALTHY LADA: How to Thrive with Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (Hachette Go; 4/4/23; $13.99; ISBN: 9780306830747) is the first and only trade book on the market dedicated to treating the 3.4 million people diagnosed with LADA in the U.S., the millions that have been misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all, the 30 million with other forms of diabetes, and even the 88 million pre-diabetic Americans. Thoroughly researched, empathetic, and practical KICKASS HEALTHY LADA shares author Jacqueline Haskins's hard-earned expertise. Medically reviewed and vetted, this go-to guide provides critical information and insights, including:•A detailed breakdown of the different diabetes diagnoses•What makes LADA different and how to find the best treatment team•Insulin: what it is, what it does, and how to know if we need more of this natural hormone•Tools for good health with LADA, including food and nutrition advice•Introducing Carb-Craft: how to safely enjoy the foods you loveOriginally misdiagnosed, Haskins visited five doctors before getting helpful guidance. Lacking a supportive and authoritative guide, Haskins spent months educating herself by scouring medical publications to weave together an understanding of LADA to take charge of her life and learn to thrive with this chronic, life-threatening, yet conquerable disease. Bringing compassion, humor, and hope to people with LADA and their loved ones from a patient's point of view, Haskins builds a solid biology-based understanding, lays out clear strategies, and addresses the social and psychological aspects of living with LADA. Through this essential toolkit, empowers the general public, newly-diagnosed, and long-diagnosed seeking support.The first book for the general public on LADA (Latent Auto-immune Diabetes in Adults) aka Diabetes 1.5, Kickass Healthy LADA offers the most up to date (and little known) information, with practical strategies and tips for healthy living.If you are one of the millions of Americans with Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA), you may not even know it. You may be one of the ten percent of people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes who actually have LADA. Even if you do know that you have LADA, sometimes called "diabetes 1.5," you're likely to be inundated with unhelpful advice and potentially harmful treatments, leaving you feeling confused and overwhelmed. That was Jacqueline Haskins' experience. After visiting five doctors before getting helpful guidance, and realizing there wasn't a friendly "how-to" book meant for the general public about LADA—she decided to write one.Thoroughly researched, empathetic, and practical, Kickass Healthy LADA shares Haskins's hard-earned expertise. Medically reviewed and vetted, this go-to guide provides critical information and insights, including:Readers will discover:•A clear and simple science-based guide on good health for a wide audience. •There are more types of diabetes than most realize. KICKASS HEALTHY LADA explains how to know if there has been a misdiagnosis, and why this matters.•People living with diabetes can reduce risks, symptoms, and be as healthy as any other person: depending on the type of diabetes they have, how early it is caught, and how hard they work at it. Well-controlled diabetes is the leading cause of nothing. •Many common beliefs about diabetes do not apply to LADA.•Opportunities to change economic and racial inequalities in diabetes health.

This week, I'm covering an important topic I haven't covered on a solocast before — agency owner work balance. Often, agency owners get pulled into too much of the day-to-day client work or aren't correctly staffing the agency to get the support they need on the work they have. There's a formula you should be following for how you break down your workday or workweek to be a successful business leader, and I'm going to map it out in an easily applicable formula. It's not always easy to get ourselves out of the daily client tasks, but the recipe I'm sharing with you today will help you block out more time for the things that matter the most. If you're not doing your job, nobody else is going to do it, either. And your job is the most important job in the entire agency. So tune in to learn how to map out your days better, get out of the day-to-day, and focus your attention where you're needed most. For 30+ years, Drew McLellan has been in the advertising industry. He started his career at Y&R, worked in boutique-sized agencies, and then started his own (which he still owns and runs) agency in 1995. Additionally, Drew owns and leads the Agency Management Institute, which advises hundreds of small to mid-sized agencies on how to grow their agency and its profitability through agency owner peer groups, consulting, coaching, workshops and more.

Homesteady - Stories of homesteading farming hunting and fishing
Are you ready to hear the saddest statistic we may have ever shared here at Homesteady? 90% of goat owners report having a goat die, for a reason other than old age. That means most of us who own goats are going to experience some really heartbreaking death at some point in our goat journey. The sad truth is, although they're super cute, they can be really hard to keep alive. That's why we talked to Deborah Neiman, the author of Raising Goats Naturally and Goats Giving Birth all about these major problems facing goat owners and how we can overcome them. So let's tackle these three major obstacles with Deborah... she shares some expert advice on how to keep our goats happy and healthy!
