Motivation For Mr. Robb

As I walk through Manhattan on a cool Sunday evening (October 16, 2016), I did something I don't usually do; I stared at the skyscrapers. And upon my observation I noticed the corporate logos of industry juggernauts: Comcast, UBS, The New York Times, News Corporation and so on. It gave me a moment to pause and think of my company's name on one of these buildings: Robb Corporation. It motivated me. It really did. And that's coming from a person that is always motivated. It's like an extra bolt of energy for someone who never runs out. I didn't need it but I greatly appreciated it.

MY WEEKLY UPDATE

1). Lyfe As Barry is coming along amazingly.

2). Genius Detectives pilot is underway. We might need a bit of reworking on that one.

3). Robb Sports Group (RSG) is searching for talented athletes.

4). Oh yeah, my wedding is coming up. Nice!!!!!!

5). I'm super excited for London. Only a couple more weeks.

Trust & Regrets

I've made mistakes.
I will make mistakes.
I've trusted the wrong people.
That's my fault.
I've given up so much for those that use it against me.
For that I regret.
And I'm a man of very few regrets.
It's like I'm at poker table and went all in,
Only to find out that the game was rigged to begin with.
I will learn from my mistakes.
I will gain from my mistakes.
And I guarantee you that I will overcome it all,
For I am Romane Orlando Robb.

My Imaginary Entertainment Vision

January 11, 2016

I've always been ambitious so I've gravitated towards ambitious ventures. Imaginary Entertainment is an ambitious venture; as it should be. I see it much more than another film company, but as an empire in the making. I'm talking about films, TV shows, commercials, music videos, talent management, music production, live theatre, publishing, etc.

I know for a fact it won't be easy. I wouldn't want to be a part of it if it was. Being an entrepreneur means you're unique and as such you have the capabilities to withstand and eventually overcome obstacles that would make most people crumble.

Imaginary Entertainment has a founding team of amazing and unique creative entrepreneurs. In a way; we're like a real life version of the Avengers. We will face obstacles, as we should. But the real and most important test is us working as a team utilizing our individual strengths for a collective benefit.

Belief, determination and action is what will propel us. That is our competitive edge.

(Co-Founder, Co-Chairman, Co-CEO, Executive Vice President of R/W Management Company)

A Completed Puzzle

So yeah, I've liked you since that day in the breakroom of that shitty job we both shared.

I was enamored by you since May 4, 2015. And fell in love with you a couple weeks later.

The great memories we share, for which they are many, help to endure the pain we share. But like anything important in life; it's most definitely worth fighting for.

You are the missing piece to my always complicated puzzle. You are not only the future Mrs. Robb, but in a way; you're my past and present. I've always been searching for you. I've searched very high and unfortunately very low.

As for my ambitions; I know I'm an exceptional individual. And yes, it's very possible I might enter history as one of the greatest individuals to ever live. Let's be honest, there aren't many people like me. There are many people who talk about doing things but I'm one of the few that is actually doing it and then some. Ambitious, determined, driven, and dedicated are not characteristics you get to see genuinely very often. You get to see that in me every single day. How rare is that? You have those that have a spark for a minute and then give up. But as you've witnessed with me; there is no giving up because I have a more grand vision than the typical individual. And that is only a miniscule part as to why I'm exceptional.

I'm not saying that to brag or to stroke my ego. I'm saying that so you understand who I am and the reason why my ambitions are "all over the place". The good news is; you've always known this. This is very public information of who I am.

In closing; without you my puzzle is incomplete. And without you, so is this journey.

The 100% Dilemma

Here's the setup: You meet a person who wants to starts a venture...but they want to keep 100% ownership. They want you to help them by dedicated time, ideas, and other resources to start and grow the venture...but they want to retain one hundred percent ownership. I find that to be incredibly stupid.

Who in their right mind is going to put in that time and effort knowing they won't benefit in the upside? The person asking for help with no equity in return should put a disclosure to the effect like; I'm not rational and should be treated as such. That way if you respond you know you're perfect for each other; both irrational!

I once heard a venture capitalist say; a hundred of shit is still shit. I see his point. Having complete ownership of nothing is still nothing. The smart people find a way to share equity with other smart people so they all can build a great venture and prosper while the idiots hoard every ounce of equity to the detriment of their venture.

I'm not saying you should give out equity without careful analysis but hoarding for the sake of complete control is completely idiotic.

The takeaway: 100% of nothing is still nothing. 50% of a successful company is still a successful company.
