"What's going on WB Fans Meg mcpeek I am so happy to be joined by our guest Jordan Canada. She is one of the up and coming superstars in the WMBA. She obviously plays for the Seattle storm coming off a win and you know without introducing her I've got to talk about some of the accolades because you can't mention Jordan Canada and not talk about defense in this league. Here's a two, thousand, nine, hundred, wnba. All defensive first team one, she's a WNBA champion with the Seattle Storm Two thousand eighteen sweeping the Washington mystics open. Guess what she was drafted number five overall by Seattle and I think my favorite fun fact about Jordan is the fact that you are the first. Woman. First Woman in PAC twelve conference history to score eighteen hundred points. Record seven hundred assists in you joined one of the best to ever do it in Gary Payton. In I. I. think that is probably the coolest thing as well. I don't know about you. I'm so excited to have you on the show first off. Happy Belated Twenty Fifth Birthday. How was it? In the bubble. Thank. You obviously, it was quite different. I didn't really get to do much. So I had practice and then I came back and I kinda just chilled That's pretty much I can do is I've been inside the bubble but I've. Sydney gifts my parents sent me a little birthday cake and some edible arrangements. So I got to celebrate just That's amazing. I'm a big fan of the edible arrangements myself. So I am super jealous about that and you mention you know being limited on what you can do in the bubble how is life going in the bubble and? To that point what has been your favorite thing to do not hoops related. The honest we come and don't have much here. We have a pool at the legacy hotel, which is right right up. The street you can save because we're all in villa. So we have a pool that we can go to I. Know they have like early morning golf lessons. and that's pretty much it. That's all we have So for the most part I mean, if you're with your teammates hanger with team You. Aims walking by because we're all in the same areas. Say hello to each other and speak to you know speech our friends and that's pretty much a practice and you come back to your villa. You'd relax and chill we go to games I'm. Really all that we have are you try to make the most of it I? Mean I'm very simple. So it doesn't bother me as much I'm such an introvert. I'm a homebody. So mostly in my room, some of most time just watching TV and stuff. So it's been fine in the beginning of a little bit rough I know something. Terrible living conditions would it where they were saying and stuff but I never had a problem with it but it's been much better You know we've only been here a little over a month. So it's getting better and I think we're just getting used to the conditions of the environment. I'm so happy I actually have something in common with Jordan Canada I am very introverted as well and homebody. So it's good to know if I was in the bubble I would be able to survive with like you said the Gulf I'd be able to hit up. So that'd be pretty cool and it's always fun to relax outside at the pool when you have an off day. So I, know when things being in the bubble and the season being much different than what you're accustomed to. Of course, the news before heading down to a Bradenton geared kloppenburg would be filling in again for coached in Hughes just because of the health concerns with his previous health and cove nineteen how has the team been in contact with coach hugues while being in the bubble? How have you all and coach Kloppenburg still managed to integrate coach us into the day to day of the season. I mean, well, we kind of had a little bit of of that last year when our coaches out when need. Your cancer in remission stuff so. We kinda had. A few games in the season without him and we kinda had to, you know do without him and adjust, but he's always been very active and engaged with us. He I know he talked to the coaching staff allow he does takes me call me from time to time just to talk and catch up I. Don't know about the other players but yet he's just been very engaging in still keeping contact i. know the coaches do a good job of You know talk to him and him incorporating things that he sees while he's. Just, something that he wants us to do Argos very that in. So having a coach Klopp no, be the interim goes like he's had experienced last year being you know in position than he's done a great job and you know we also have like sue bird who's technically light a coach he knows that they're helping. US as well. So we have a lot of help but I know that you know we we really do Miss Dan and I know he's cheering us on from home and you know work continuing to pray for him after thought. So it's it's been a good experience at amazing and it's as if you have done this media before because we me Perfectly with mentioning sue bird and for fans that may not be aware two, thousand nineteen with sue being out with her injury. You were basically thrust in your second season into the starting role and leading this team from the point guard position and being a vocal leader at such a young age in your career. Can you tell us just how that adjustment was? Last season and dealing with that, and even if you know as you mentioned is basically an extra coach with the team on the floor now that you've got her back in the lineup, how how was that transition for you and what advice did she give you throughout last season? It was it was It was tough. I would say there was a lot of ups and downs during that season. It's very hard coming from and you're you know one of the star players on the team you're playing a lot of minutes and you come into a team that's fully stagnant at the see. Find Yourself and my rookie year I had a hard time finding my role I was very up and down I, kind of lost a little bit of my confidence. So it was it was a hard adjustment and then going overseas having to be thrust back into a starting position than have to you know get that leadership back in that confidence bag. So I think that really helped a lot going into two thousand, nineteen season I mean obviously, I didn't expect to be out but because. I was prepared and I gained a little bit my confidence back. I was able to just we know set Ryan in. Obviously there have been subscription ups and downs during that season and trying to learn as I go but sue was a big help. I mean the the best advice that she gave me was don't worry about trying to fill my shoes in in trying to be like me just play your game I know once I came into the league, everyone was talking about Oh. Jordan and ensue in is Jordan going to be able to about up to sue in an expectations and so she told me not to worry about that lying just go out inches player game two point guards, two different types of styles. But what I bring to the table is very important to the team, and so I keep that in mind last year and just trying to play my game and not. The. You know the outside noise and just Do What my team needed to do and I kinda, you know gained a lot of confidence in that and incoming in this season and having Birdie back. I mean like I? Say We're two different point guards in two different styles and if you've watched this play the season, you can kinda tell the difference of when I committed in when she's in. So it's just great to see that you know we're able to play together and you know still Kinda or me keep up the pace with the team when I'm coming in and not have a a low or did. when sue comes out so it's just been awesome experience so far she's been a tremendous help and in my growth all around. How important was that advice that she gave you of reminding you don't try to be me be yourself like how how integral was that inner growth especially, you mentioned now having her back. was very helpful I mean coming into it team like I said I was fully back in playing behind one of the. Honestly. The best point guards ever played the game I mean, that's kind of like nerve wracking and still you have your own expectations like I don't want to screw I don't. WanNa. Come in to a team as police tag playing behind the best point guard ever and you know fail I. Mean there's some of the things I not to think about my rookie year in having her tell me that especially a veteran who's been as game for so long you know she didn't have to tell me that she didn't have to step aside and say, Hey, like don't worry player game don't worry about outside noise expectations just just play your game in big about the team and you which you need to do to to get us to where we are and so to have that advice as such. Early stage in my career was is extremely helpful and it has helped me at times. I think about those times she says that it just calmed down because I know there's been times in the season last year this year where I get super rattle and try to do too much in that think about. That, like calmed down, relaxing, get back to who I am as a player. So to have that to have that advice as A. Data Mark Career is a blessing in Zomba's very thing for her.

"Don't know how you know because of the environment you're in we did not have the lead Luxuria Korea the pedigree or the luxury of having uncles or cousins. That you can turn to for advice or get money so you had to do it the hard way. I was on the road a lot as we build stores. Thank God for technology -Nology at that time we leverage technology allowed the stats that people gave you was for every ten stores. You have to have an employee that that's managing those ten stores. We he could only afford one for one hundred so you were on the road so I would get a phone call from our franchisee having this issue and I would say I'll be there tomorrow and and that's just how I was and at times I wish I had said No. You know what I'll see you next week. Because the reality of it is we still fruit baskets so the family comes first. I hear a little bit and the most important people that you do things for usually pay the highest price. They're they're very forgiving and and they went through a lot and it's probably something I think about the most but at the same time these are the same people that make you successful because when you slow down there like what. What are you doing goal because they get used to you being a certain way and especially when they see that you enjoy in your successful they do pay a price but at the same time? You couldn't do it without i. I have had a couple of conversations with on some entrepreneurs in this audience who have said look apparent of got kids. I want to spend time with my kids. That's a priority for me and I wonder under I mean. Is it possible. I mean you invest in companies. You Mentor people. You advise other founders. Who are starting out both younger and older? Is it possible to you. Really build something meaningful and purposeful that requires a lot of time and energy but still maintain your focus on your personal life your family your partner. I think it's possible if you could disconnect I think you have to have tunnel vision and that's probably why the family and people around US suffer for a little bit because you see the destination you see where you WanNa go in your. Just add it. My my kids were reminding. You have a ten year old boy in nine year old boy. They were both reminding me that. Hey we went to this ice cream shop and you were on the phone and we don't want to go to the ice cream shop because you're on the phone for an hour and we have to sit around waiting for ice cream you you know. I had to learn to balance this where I just don't know how to disconnect I'll be sending messages at two. Am I woke up. And I got this idea about how to dip apple a different way and somebody will reply back at four. Am like Oh. You didn't need to do that this will you sent it at two. AM and so. I think with that you have to realize that. How Oh you're wired and I think the family has to realize and you have to be realistic with the family to say this is going to be a very hard time? I'm going to be very very busy the but just I only I always tell people. Don't waste your life time on dumb ideas just you know you have no business being in a bad business. Don't do that because there. You won't forgive yourself and your family won't forgive you so that's the only the only balance that you have to be careful. I see some people doing some stuff. They're very passionate about it. And that's where you need a mentor or someone to help you. Awesome free founder of edible arrangements..

"I wish I could do it could have done it differently was probably more time with my kids. You know, I had to be on the road a lot. And if you haven't financed or gotten taken on dead and grew the company organically, you're of course, you go through those financial challenges and with that you're going to work, very hard. I didn't mind hard work. I don't mind hard work now. But you look back, and you miss some of those years, though, special with your kids, and I think that's probably the thing that I wish I did differently. And then as my mom, my mom passed away in two thousand five and I wish I had spent more time with her. Yeah. Say you sort of you've you've six kids three or kids are older like college age out. And then you've got a seven year old new year old and a ten year old. So you sort of have a second shot at that. Are you are you doing it a little bit differently? This this round with kids. Time a little less travel. Luckily, my oldest is working with me. So I get to spend a lot of time with her probably more time than she wants to spend. And I get to spend a lot of time with the younger kids now. So I take time out. But I I am a bit of a workaholic. I enjoy work. I enjoy building companies. So there is a there you always wish there's more. And I think everybody complains about that. So everybody wishes that they could do more. And and we have to grow fast. So we were going to we have to take advantage of as much as possible. You have said that you wanted your kids to work at McDonald's. No matter how wealthy your family. Got you wanted them to work at McDonald's. Have they so far my daughter's haven't, but I hopefully got the boys in there, you know? So or at least get him into a franchise got him into a small business. I want them to work in this house. Two girls have worked edible arrangements doors. So they worked in a franchise. They haven't worked at McDonalds because the the we were just pull them into our own businesses. But I want them to experience ho how it is to own a small business and to appreciate what small business owners to and to appreciate what we have done to get to where we are..

"Do Google ad words or not even add words search engine, and the things that you pay for and all the skills, you need to run a small business, and then you competing with these major corporations that are almost getting the doing it for free or have tons of money. So I think one running the business is hard enough. Then, you know, you have a minimum wage that you want and you want to look I don't know any small business that does not wanna take care of its employees at everyone wants to and for them. It's not numbers for them. It's not, you know, we need ten at ten employees at this. And keep them part time. These are neighbors. You know, these are people that that are in like we have small when we were small business are an and I had a small business had stores. You knew everyone you knew their family. You know, you knew what what their expenses where you know, the challenges are going through I know by franchisees. No, everyone of their employees. I wanna take care of them. So to think that those they don't want to pay more if they could a lot of times, it's not as easy as saying that you need to pay this much there. There has to be a not only an environment. But there has to be an opportunity of easing some of the burden when it comes to like you said taxes the burden of of some of the regulatory challenges in earn of the industries. And then just you know, the the challenges of just the training. I think the biggest challenge we face is just a trainee or or what we have to do to try to bring in some talent where you have to pay a lot more in small business just can't compete with the big major corporations one thing before we I want to talk a little bit about your family tries as we wrap up, but one thing before that there's a big debate in this country now over paid family Ledin paid parental leave for new mothers new fathers. Paid leave to take care of a sick parent. I'd assume those hourly employees at your friend franchises. They don't get three months paid off by the corporation right now. Right. That's just not how it works at any at any franchise for the most part. What do you think? I mean, should the government be funding this so that those employees get it because I mean, frankly, Drake, I, you know, it's not us who need it. And we get it. Right. We were for recuperation I worked for recognition. I get it. I get three months paid off when I have time off and have a child it's those hourly workers that really can't afford to take that time off if it's not paid. What is the role is their role of government to to pay for that to make paid leave government funded? Look, I will look the policymakers and people who are responsible for that to decide, but I will tell you when I was a small business owner I couldn't afford to do. So, you know, and we do it. Now, you know, we have benefits now. But to ask small business owners to ask our franchisees. They couldn't and the back than you even lacked the sophistication of how to structure that or how to pull some of these things together, but what should the role of government bid be? I we have to take care of our people. You know, we we have to turn on and provide benefits where they're needed. We you know, we can't just simply turn around and and ignore that. If I'm saying we have to take care of our community take care of our customer. We have to take care of our people, you know, and and we spend a lot of money on other stuff. But if you're not taking care of your people, then you know, what good is money. So I think there are a lot of neighborhoods. There are a lot of cities. There are a lot of areas with a lot of challenges people are going through difficulty, and we have to provide benefits. What have you sacrificed personally? For all of this success? I, you know, look with the success. I've had I would be disingenuous. If I said, if I sacrifice something, you know, I I worked hard. I think what you end up, you know. And I've said this before what you end up sacrificing that..

"Foundation. And we'll cares. What is the onus on corporate America today to help narrow the income divide in the opportunity gap? So I've always had a simple rule, which is that you have to take care of your community and your customer if you want to be healthy company. So you have to look out of what you're doing be it, you know, taking care of local organizations taking care of causes that are close to you. And then when you know, my mother used to say that Honey never forget where you come from that, you know, one day, you, you know, you had nothing if you're a successful make sure you look back, and you take care of the community that built you and take care of the neighborhood. And always remember how tough it was. And so it it's tough for some people. It's really tough up there. And I know I don't know how these small business owners do it. I mean, they fight every day where taxes get they don't have a lobby to try to, you know, prevent some taxes or prevent some things. So I I, you know, I think. The people have to look out for it. I think the representatives have to look up for the government have to look out for that. And I've been. I mean, what's the onus on on business is it wages because you you. I would assume that push and pull on wages. You see this the fight for fifteen the minimum wage debate. Now, you've also got these franchisees who say I can only afford expert our for these folks or I'm not like where do you fall on that? Where does big business stand in terms of of of opportunity for more, folks? Look, I I think we just should be fair. Everybody should get a fair wage, but at the same time just simply to ask a small business owner that you have to do it or we're we're franchise company. So to ask the franchisees that you have to pay more without realizing all the other costs that are associated running the business, and it's not easy financing hasn't been easy for franchisees small business owners to get and everything. So I think you know, that that like I said, I think you need to get some people together, and at least have small business owners at the table as well and listen not just make policy with. Without having at least the feedback from the be at the franchise industry or the small business owners in that city in that state. What is what is living wage in your mind, knowing that it varies very much from New York City to join Iowa. That's right. You know, I I couldn't tell you. You know, you know, we we, you know, we we know what we pay and there's a range. You know, we all we pay above the minimum wage, we have to state or the federal, you know, so we have to pay about seven twenty five an hour. But yeah, the state I mean, most of the states, but you know, I I think each business know for a small business owner affordability is very important thing. You know, when when you were asking a small business owner to raise something that they have to dig it out of their pocket. They can't just simply go raise prices because it's an effect on the consumer as well. So what would help them the most? Let's say call it. Fifteen dollars an hour. Right. Okay. That some argue that to Mark you. Ten ten hours where it President Obama's pushing for there's twelve dollars an hour. Let's let's call it. If it is fifteen dollars an hour in in in a big city, for example, like here in New York City, then how could the federal government help in your mind, those small businesses so they can afford that. Would it be more tax breaks for them? So they don't have to raise prices. So be one is tax breaks. Second. I think just the opportunity of business. You know, there's just making it easier where you know, sometimes. You know, you know there. It's very onerous on some of the businesses or to start something. It's okay. So I think right now, it's much more difficult to do a small business than it was a long time ago between you know, all the advertising that you have to.

"Arrangements that we have nine hundred owners that own all these stores, and they all employees between five to ten people. And they they'd never sit there and say, well, I'll open in east haven, if I get a tax break, they just want to open their store, so what could be different pie here. You may argument makes a lot of sense. What could what could a tangible change be? That would make it easier on on them. I think just the recognition in one the recognition second making the Plainfield a little level. Right. So I think if you're going to give all these tax breaks, and if you're going to give all these benefits to these companies that one day will pick up their bag, and and move on or some some of them are taking the money from one St. and bringing the prophets to another state where these lot of these small businesses are owned. From that town working in that town employing people from that talent keeping the money there. So said he could say or a steak could say for giving ex-, you know, tax rate to two big x fortune one hundred corporation than the right would exist for that same percentage tax break for small business coming into that town during a certain span of years. Why should I subsidising a small company of my property taxes or autumn, my state income tax, it, it should be fair in just because we don't have the lobbying power just because we don't have the the sophistication doesn't necessarily mean that we shouldn't get those benefits and us here are some of these things, and I think it's very unfair especially in a country where we're talking about jobs. We're talking about creating wealth how about wealth for the little guy. Well, let's talk about that. Let's talk about income inequality. The opportunity gap the income gap in America. You're passionate about philanthropy giving back you've been extraordinarily successful financially. You have the Tariq freed.

I have very diverse background of franchisees. I think people have used. They're very feel very strongly about the views. But that again is the strength of this country where you can have those views and voice them during the Obama administration. You know, you said look at one thing that that that administration missed out on was in your words, not having small business people at the table. Tell me why. And is it being done more effectively now? No, look, I I think major corporations major companies that have a lot of money are really being taken care of. And there's a major disadvantage to small businesses small business owners right now they've work very hard. You know, they they don't get the rescues. They don't get the benefits. They don't get the, you know, the preference where people are fighting over. No one's fighting over a small business to open its doors in their town. They're trying to attract these Sprague's. Yeah. They don't get any tax breaks. And there there's no sophistication. To get those tax breaks. So I think you know, and and but there's more small businesses. There are a little diners in in towns that are employing five or six people or ten people. Our franchise system is all made of small business owners where like these Legos pieces that make up edible.

"You know, if you're if you haven't traveled overseas, and if you haven't traveled to some of these countries, so we're seeing growing and see what they're what they're copying their copying things that they learned from America. They send their kids to this country to learn about how to do business. Learn about how to treat each other learn about how to take care of the customer learn about rights for others that that's what they're learning from and kind of building these great economies. We can't go backwards. We have to turn on in. My job is for what it what this country gave me for it for me to leave it better for new my part. There was an impetus for you to write this though. Right. I mean, you don't if everything was going swimmingly, you wouldn't have felt the need to write this. So why because you you see we we have a lot of immigrants that our franchisees. You lot of the entrepreneurs at open our businesses, and you see them concern, you see people concerned about what's happening, and you see this in other countries where certain. Minorities are certain people are discriminated against. And and you know, and it's it's damaging to those economists damaging to what has what the fabric of that country is I I, you know, my thing is that at least I have to say something at least I have to. Yeah. That's really interesting. So like for you said it for you, you feel it. But you also said it for the morale of the franchisees, your employees. And you say I can't stay silent. For decades CEO's had stayed silent. Because there was too much risk. They felt associated with speaking out on social issues, all of your employees never feel the same way. They don't all have the same politics. They don't have the same views on these issues. But something has changed in the last five years, I've seen from CEOs all the way up to the biggest companies in America that that now agree with you and say, we cannot stay silent because we're global, you know, if we're leading the world, then, you know, we're we're hiring people from all.

"So imagine walking into a store and within seven minutes, getting an arrangement we make it. Otherwise, you've had ordered him in advance. That's right. So you you walk in and you can pick an arrangement in seven to eight minutes. It's ready, and you walk out with an arrangement because people are thinking on the way to mom's house on the way to a trip to say, hey, we should get something. So, you You know. know? Tells me it's it's his mother's birthday that day. That's right. So we'll we'll deliver within hours. You're twenty four year old daughter works with you now in the company. I think your goal is. You know, could she lead one day? Maybe. So what's that? Like, I mean that that can't be easy for your her having her in the company and being treated the same as other employees. She does a great job. And you know, she has to fend for herself. You know? It's a we have a lot of amazing people, and she has to compete, but you know, I it's probably the proudest moment for me when when your daughter comes into the company, and she can sit and she can hold her own a meeting and win the team over and I'm not really known much for favoritism. And and I built it the hard way, and I want her to work, and I want her to earn it. And she does. And she does a great job. She's very smart. I'm very very lucky to have an amazing daughter, and the and and she's in the company, so it's a it's it's, you know, I'm I am working on building and kind of passing the company on and it's nice to be able to see that your oldest is going to be taking it one day. Let's talk about being. Parent and a business leader right now in this environment as an as an immigrant as low as a Muslim American immigrants right now, what is your reaction to? What is your sentiment about the rhetoric in America right now when it comes to to immigrants as Pacific Muslim American immigrants? You know, it's a challenging time to say the least I find myself. I worry about my, you know, daughters, and and my kids, we're very you're you're you're very protective. And you wanna make sure that I I enjoyed you know, I've never had any issues and never even thought about it. So I don't think a thirteen year old that comes to America is thinking that he's an immigrant. You know, you come and especially when you run into people that only wanna make you better until you hit kid, you're doing a great job keep going you're going to be a millionaire by the time. You're thirty six. Well, you know, you hear people say stuff here and there, but it's no different than what you saw there Americans facing. So I know a lot of my friends were African American, and you would hear things, and you would see things I knew other immigrants from you know, Poland and other places that would face similar things. So you didn't think much of it? You like a look, you know, there are some there are some you would rub it off as you know, there are some mean people something like that. But in the rhetoric is it a little bit of a little bit hurtful, you know. That's the only thing and I. Tariq. I mean, have we regressed in terms of our rhetoric since you were a kid coming up here? I think it was there. I just think it has changed, you know, to other people, you know, back then there's always been an underlying and look for me to say, it's only in America was would be disingenuous. If I if you go to Pakistan west where my family's from you. See it you see it there as well. You see it in other countries. I think there's just this human nature sometimes that if you feed it, or if you let it, you know, come to the top that it has a little ugly side. So I think you see a little bit of that. But I'm hoping as we have matured out of it before we'll mature out of this as well. We wrote in a column in the New York Times, quote, dear America, please. Remember how you got to be the wealthiest country in history. It wasn't through protectionism or state-owned banks or fearing free trade. Why did you write that? Oh because.

"An adviser. And he would say you pay your tuition every time. You don't you miss classes? What's going on? What are you paying for? What are you paying for it? And you don't get good grades. What's going on? And I sat down with them. And And isn't there? isn't there was Michael? And I said, Michael I'm doing really good in business. And he goes what business are you in as a why owned flower shop? So he figured you know, I own flower shops how much could I be making? And I think that year I told him I, you know, the flower to flower shops, I said, you know, on Saturdays, I can't attend classes because there's always a wedding on weekdays if I get busy on the shop. And so he says, oh how much could you be making? And I think I shared something with him about one hundred and fifty hundred sixty thousand is what we cleared that year. And he said something like, well, I have a PHD, and I made forty some odd thousand go go take care of your business. Don't worry about it. And that was kind of my permission at that point. And I'm not saying that I think kids should definitely go to school is just I was on a roll. And he gave me the permission saying go run your business, and I did. And and if I didn't do that, I probably would have not grown the business. And because I started an IT company right after that. So I suppose if you have children came you and said, we're not going to college would say, well, no you're going to call. Well, it it all depends. If they were doing something if there were doing something that I saw that there was potential than I may let them balance it a little bit. But I I, you know, I I think things are different in the situation was different for me at that time fast forward you start obviously company shortly thereafter, and then nine hundred ninety nine you start edible arrangements. This is for anyone listening who doesn't know. But I think we all know at this point this is through beautifully cut up some dipped in chocolate at cetera. It looks like an arrangement of flowers if you're ten feet away. You don't know it's free. You think it's flowers? No one thought you would succeed. No one except you put the customers told us, they love the product anytime you made it and you put in front of the customers they thought this. When can I buy how can I buy more in? You know, can I get it for this holiday? But everyone that I went to for advice, or for money would tell me, what do you think it would work, and I told him because customers are telling me they want to buy it. And I had a very successful, computer company and a. Very successful flower business, and you know, I think they were looking out for me. Like, you have a very successful a flower business once you, you know, stick to the flower business, and so if I went to borrow money, they would tell me we don't think it's going to work. So I'm sorry. You know, they'll deny you. And then my father bought in a friend of his who was a professor, and who he said, you know, he in he looks at it. And he says, well, you have a pretty successful flower business. Have you done a focus group, and I hadn't even heard of a focus group and kept going back and forth of telling them how customers love it. And I know and my mother always thought that this business was going to do. Great. And I said, I did have a focused. Mom, your mom. My mom..

"I mean, they're they're they're expensive here. Right. But that was something you had in in plenty in Pakistan. So we fruit was never an issue. My my family was well to do from standard and buck astronomy, the reformer. So my father was always very generous at the end of the night everybody sat around and the last thing you did was you ate fruit. You know, that was desert going to say, and I we came here about a year and a year in six months, and I'm not really sure of the time. My mother saw mangoes at a grocery store, and she tells my father that there are mangoes I think there were a dollar each and my father my father says no put them back there too expensive. And I, you know, as a twelve or thirteen year old, I realized at that point that things have changed. And then you just talked to help your neighbor, you know, during your first year is here in the United States had keep working this hard, you'll PM millionaire by the time, you're thirty five. Okay. It's turned out to be pretty true. But did you believe him at the time? I didn't think about it. But I I like the ring. So she was just she was just as amazing generous lady that that, you know, she was one of those women that when it was snowing in you walk, and she would always bring you in the house give you something warm, and then she'd be like dusting the snow off of US's talking to you. And she just said something, but and I never forgot that whenever I thought I was working too hard and not making it or or it's not gonna work. I always remembered what she said, and you just double down on it and it worked. I mean, you know, her prediction worked he talked about walking into, you know, the government offices to to open a business. You did. I mean, you start working at a flower shop, and you're just trying to learn the ropes trying to get it. Right. You're seeing. How how a shop and how businesses run? And then eventually, you guys pulled together a few thousand bucks from family and friends, and you open your own tell me about that. So my father I used to work when I was about thirteen fourteen I used to work at a flower shop and always go their water plants, and it was it was a way for Charlie fair. Sally, fair Sally's flowers in Westhaven to just help kids and keep them off the street and just he was just an amazing neighborhood business owner, and you know, and so worked for him, and my father thought now if you worked in a flower shop, we could probably own one. So he would always be looking in the newspaper for business, and he saw some a flower shop had gone out of business in eastern Connecticut Tyler florist on sale for six thousand what they were. Actually, I think we're selling what the equipment and there were liquidating. And he's you know, he comes to me. And he says, look there's a flower shop for sale, and you just didn't say, no, you said, okay. Let's do it. And you know, I I'm glad I didn't know much about business because if I knew a lot I would have told them that. Don't know much about it. And we opened it, and it was the money was actually loaned, and this is the amazing part. And this is the generosity that that all the success is built on Bill and Denise Holt Berg, who was my father's boss gave me the six thousand dollars. Imagine somebody giving back then when an average salary may have been for machinist thirty thousand dollars thirty thousand dollars giving six thousand dollars to seventeen year old who says I'm going to go take a business. That's shut down. And I'm going to go and run it and I'll pay you back conditions. No conditions. He said go for it. Here's six thousand. What have you given them since? I I make sure that I, you know, keep them in mind and take care of them whenever I can. And. You paid them back to see those you have to have done a lot. Dropped out of college dropped out of college. Not useful. I was doing good and business. And this was again, I had a..

"And and because my great grandfather was came to the US back as Lieber, you know. So there there were recruit people from India farmers to come and he worked in Sacramento, and there was stories in the family about America, you know, and and and then my mother and her family that lost everything in the partition of India bug is time and who ended up in a refugee camp. And when she came here, she kinda would tell us these stories, and she thought it was freedom for her. And I think now we didn't know anything I was twelve or thirteen years old. But you know, what she was talking about slowly because now she was in control, she can inspire her kids. You can do a lot of things that she heard. About in the family that what the family have done. And I think it started from that. And then all the people that I met along the way everybody wanted me to do better. Everybody wanted to encourage and I mostly remember those people, and I always share those stories, and I think if it wasn't for those inspirations if it wasn't for the environment. If it wasn't for how easy it is to do stuff. And you know, some it seemed businesses very difficult. But then you know, I can add sixteen or fifteen I can walk into the secretary of the state office and register company, and they actually help you that that doesn't happen to most people don't realize that doesn't happen in other countries. You're multimillionaire now. But you have said McDonald's was the best job. I ever had. Okay. Make the case that's hard for me to believe because I worked at a gas station. I was not the best job macdonalds. Okay. So. Okay. So so because they had systems and I always loved to excel and where their systems you can excel. So when you went in they kind of gave you training, you know. So I started out by watching a video, and you're cleaning the bathrooms you are clearing cleaning the reception area. But you knew what the next stage was and so I learned most of the systems from there. And then when I wanted to franchise my company, I remembered all those things that sixteen seventeen eighteen and I remembered their operations manuals, I remembered their scheduling, and they they got you involved in everything, you know, they, you know, they they expected a lot not expected a lot. They're trained seventeen year olds to do great, great training ground view, and your parents came to the United States from Pakistan, you know, money fought five kids, he were twelve what was that like for you? Because I remember stories about my my husband emigrating to to America when he was when he was the same age when was five years old coming from Bosnia. And I remember those stories in this memories of flying into JFK. What what pops up in your mind? I think just the environment. I mean, it's very different. You know? So I haven't forgotten the first time we got off, and we got on a Connecticut. Limousine bus. It's six kids. So was five brothers and one sister. And we get off on the oldest. And the first thing you see is just this totally different environment. I remember what I remember the hubcaps on the bus, you know, the wheels and everything and then just just, you know, getting on a bus, and and it just getting into a totally different environment. And and I have never forgotten that I still share that with my kids, and we were just on this weekend. We went and trace the route my mother used to walk to the grocery store because I every year every two years. I take my kids back and said, this is where your grandmother used to walk two and a half hours to get groceries and you're one of six kids. Now, you have six kids who have so much privilege because if your success, but you want them to remember exactly where you came from the circumstance your country began your your family began in this country. That's right. Your dad worked the night shift at Burger King on top of his other jobs just to make extra money. You would join him bring as much money home for your family as you could. And money was tight. There's this moment. You talk about when you were at the store, and you your family couldn't afford mangoes..
