To celebrate my 500th post on the forum, I've created a small illustration for the CENTS framework:

I've got inspired by @Ismail941 flowcharts over here. Thanks!



Entry:
  • Your competition wants to do the same thing, but they can't - the barrier of entry is too high.
Control:
  • You are not using a platform, you ARE the platform. (insert Breaking Bad reference here :hilarious:)
Scale:
  • Create the product once, sell forever.
Need:
  • People are eager to buy what you're selling.
  • They recommend you to everyone, thus productocracy is achieved.
Time:
  • With or without you, the business keeps printing money.
  • You have the freedom to do anything you want.



Thanks @MJ DeMarco for creating this wonderful community.
I'm glad to be here.

I'm glad you're here!

Thanks for taking the time to create this illustration and share it with us! I really appreciate the emotional imagery and impact it has.

ENTRY - the image reminds us that there are a lot of people who are angry, dissatisfied, shortsighted, self-serving, and who need problems solved.
SCALE - a nice reminder to put your human energy into a product/service once and let machinery/hardware/software replicate it.
NEED - making others' lives better and keeping them happy is the whole point!
TIME - great image choice and placement. It evokes a few thoughts and feelings that I'm having trouble putting into words at the moment..
CONTROL - wonderfully put as a key foundational aspect. YOU control your decisions, actions/reactions, and life.

Thanks again!

Thank you for the beautiful illustration.

Plant a money tree (enterprise according to cents). It's really awesome. Maintaining him from his childhood to his youth (company with clients) is the only thing that is a bit difficult but if you manage to do it, you won't have to suffer anymore, once he starts giving fruit (money)
