Pittsburgh Houseplant Merchant Blossoms During Pandemic
"Now. This is a really cool story today. Two weeks ago we focused this episode this segment around a guy known as plant influence sir. The plant influence up toronto. And naturally we try to space topics out of bit When i was looking at all the notes for upcoming throwback thursday segments. I saw that this one was about plants i was like. Oh that's cool but let's let's push the plants back just so we're not like all plants all the time. But when i listened to the interview with abby some parts of which you'll hear in a moment. I realized she had a really good story that i just didn't want to wait for you to here. So this is the month plants. Apparently and after years of being part time abby opened her shop in january twenty twenty she opened a retail shop in pittsburgh and naturally was quite worried. Because you may recall. January twenty twenty was the last normal month of life for most of us especially anyone who is a public facing kind of business like a new retail shop but in her case she really ended up turning things around so she's got a great update along with some helpful lessons. You always hear this thing about you. Know find your niche and chief and mentioned sat in her by. She's like yeah. You always hear this thing but it's so important in a crowded space and she actually was able to find a good one so it's always good to look and say okay. Not just find your niche. But how does one do that. What are specific examples of people that have done that because that will perhaps allow somebody else to think. Okay what is what is my thing. Not just my broad area. But what is my specific plant expertise. Am i going to be the plant. Influence her going to be abby from pittsburgh or am i going to be myself. You know the best answer is probably to be yourself. But how can you make that marketable anyway enough about me. I learned a lot from abbey's interview. So let's hear some highlights from her. And i'll be back at the end to wrap it up. My name. is abby calcio knee from pittsburgh pennsylvania and i own jericho plant co which was previously featured in episode eighty three. I started back in twenty eighteen. I was working a full time corporate job in the supply chain in finance world and just wanted to do something in my free time on my own with something that i love which was plants. So i started in online houseplant shop. You can hear more about in that previous episode. And i did that for about a year and then in two thousand nineteen. Whenever we recorded that last episode i was just branching out into doing local pop up shops around town and finally getting my hands. what in selling in person instead of just online and having my husband come and help me because i needed extra help because they were doing so well Yeah it was. Just you know. A pretty stereotypical side-hustle just kind of finding time wherever you can find it so once. The lockdown happened in pennsylvania It was also very uncertain. And we no one really knew what to do however my space and the warehouse i open in pennsylvania technically allowed to stay open. Because i'm an ecommerce company. So i was actually set up pretty well for covid and the lockdown was already set up to ship customers their orders. And that's exactly what i did so honestly i don't know if i would have grown as much as i had twenty twenty. My first technical big year in business had it not been for people really wanting to have plants in their home so that they were all stuck at home and finding my business especially here locally. I was shocked at the amount of people who are willing to pay for shipping. And i was sending it to miles away because they could leave their homes. So i all my inventory was already on the website. I've still have that same shop. Affi- store that i had for the last two years so i was really set up for success. Actually which was incredible and then just sort of went with the flow for the rest of the year. Like i'm sure every other business owner has has done and i continued pop up shops where possible and doing sidewalk shops. So that was also a great way for me to advertise and shop. Affi- put in place a curbside pickup option into their interface. So from may onwards. That's how i've made most of my money as people buying online and picking up on my warehouse here in pittsburgh and i still ship across the country and that's still a great avenue for for revenue for me. I was fortunate enough to hit one hundred k. And revenue by november of twenty twenty which. I didn't expect to happen at all. I was very happy with that. It was sort of a struggle of mine. What's i kind of got to see. How the hub. Year risk going in terms of hitting six figures in nine months in a business essentially started the pandemic i. I'm pretty happy with the growth. That i've had and continue to see going into twenty twenty one one of the biggest challenges that actually any house plant or plants seller in general husband. Basing is a plant shortage across the entire country This is both in seeds and outdoor plants. I think demand is skyrocketed this year. Which i've obviously benefited from. However that's led to incredible shortages at the growers in florida and on top of that they are also dealing with the repercussions from fad hurricanes in the past five or ten years because the plant supply chain. It takes so long if you go to a store and buy a five foot tall tree just think of how many years it took for that plant ticket that large and if a thrower gets its inventory wiped out or damage that can be years of sales that are taken away from them. So my advice to you in. If you're looking to get into any sort of plant business would be to find your niche differentiate. Yourself and i know that is sometimes just something you hear about and you know marketing class or whatever but in a saturated market like online plant. Sales are or you know. Even locally you're competing with other plants stores florists and garden centers and lowe's and home depot You really have to differentiate yourself so. I focused my entire websites on helping beginners. Find their plants. Just sort of like a questionnaire like form type of thing you can go through my website and then everything is kept nice and simple on the product pages to really just get people started with house plants one of the biggest surprises and benefits. I am getting out of starting my own business is so i do the retail side and the wholesale side and retail to make people happy every single day by giving them plants which is so much fun and talking to everybody is so much fun but what i didn't know i would enjoy so much is talking to my wholesale clients and getting to know other people who are running businesses. Because they're in it with me. They no one else knows unless they're nba arena there few fighting the same fight. You are like the struggles. Of how am i gonna pay rent this month. All right my heating bill was really high. What can i do to reduce that. And and how. Am i going to get inventory and a consistent schedule talking about those problems and helping other business owners and learning from other business owners spend such a wonderful benefit of. It's sort of like your own little. Nba i feel like without having to pay all the money for an mba.
Malika Andrews on Kyrie, KD, and the Brooklyn Nets
"Weekend. It is really good to hear your voice back on espn daily. It's good to be back. And i'm back not in orlando and not eating sushi. What what is this. It's strange times. The last time we spoke was almost two months ago. Exactly actually you had just left the bubble. You just return to where you are. Now you're in manhattan apartment. The corner bodega had welcomed. You back like beauty and the beast like little town came alive to welcome you in the i did bring the data guys. I brought them the nba masks from the bubble. They very much enjoyed those. That was that scored big free. Coffee points with them so melita. I am super excited to talk to you today. You are covering the brooklyn nets this season for. Espn yeah and you went to your. I unbuckled nba game in a really really long time It was the first preseason game the debut of the brooklyn debts. And they face the wizards on sunday night in brooklyn. So what was it like actually going inside the building so i arrived at barclays center too early. The doors open at three. And i was standing outside at two thirty with alex schiffer who is the nets beat writer for the athletic. We stand outside six feet apart of the media entrance to barclays center for a half an hour chatting. Eventually we walk inside. We go through security as normal and the testing folks come through and they set up at their tables and they say okay. Who's i and i say i'm i i'll do it. This test is one of the longer. Cue tips goes a little bit farther up your nose and the results come back in six minutes. So i my one blue line as i was negative and i got to walk through to where we're normally sitting in. The seats are distance feet apart. Only seven of us that got clear to be in barclays center. And that's where. I sat and watched the game. You can interact with players. You can't interact with coaches you can't interact with the front office members you are up on the concourse level and they are down on the court and that boundary cannot cross so that sounds extraordinarily rigorous also kind of strange which sets you up to actually watch an nba game in a realized full time nba arena. And i want to get into. I want to get into kevin durant and his return to play in a little bit. But i want to start here. Melita with kyrie irving because it's impossible. Not to at this point he was making headlines all last week for refusing to speak to people like us in the media and all of that changed yesterday when he ends up finally having a session with journalists so first off. Please take us through. What made all of this so highly anticipated like this is a preseason media availability but it was certainly not a normal event well it was just preseason availability but preseason availability is also the first time we hear from these guys and because it was his. First preseason availability. It's also the first time that we've had a chance to talk to him since he had season ending shoulder surgery in february. So that's been a long time. A lot has happened.

2020 NBA Draft goes virtual
"Draft. I'm gonna start there because it was last night. And for being really honest, man. It was weird, right? It was weird. It was always going to be weird. We knew this. It was going to be weird because it was held in November. And because it's been eight months since we've seen any of the college players on the floor, and it was going to be weird, because, like everything else, it was going to be virtual. All right. So a virtual draft first up a quick note on the virtual aspect, it actually is pretty well done. You look good felt a lot better than having Roger Goodell in his basement and the emotions from the players when they were at home, surrounded by family and friends felt a lot stronger and a lot more authentic than having them a tables in a gigantic NBA arena.

How NBA executive Jeff David stole $13 million from the Sacramento Kings
"They were switching gears doors has gone off to live it up in La hopefully and in the door in her chair because we just had to do. Hi this is Kevin Arnovitz. Who just wrote a riveting piece that was really just like a movie about Jeff David a former kings chief revenue officer. That's right and former heat but didn't really get started at the heat. Who told how much money thirteen million dollars thirteen million dollars? And how did he do it. Wow it funny story so sponsorships it's like we all we talk about front office people. We talk about the basketball ops people a lot here. There's this entire parallel universe over in in every NBA team. Which is the business ops people? These are the people that often the basketball people don't like but that's neither here nor there but so he was in charge of sponsorship ownership so all that stuff right like the names that are on the arena that sideline score table advertising. You see he was in charge of selling all that stuff and the the way he did it is is golden one. We know the Golden One Center there might even be playoff game sometimes sooner the golden one center I if I if the kings were fortunate and He put together that deal. He also put together the deal for their training facility which is The Kaiser Permanente trail all these teams have liked sponsors for their training facilities and in the process of putting together the big title sponsorship or the naming rights sponsorship deal What he did was he took a little for himself? He After they came to a twenty year one hundred and ten million dollar agreement with Golden. One Sometime I'm after. Finalizing the deal while the kings were still putting the last touches on their arena He went back to golden one and said. Hey you know it had previous discussions about maybe you give us more money up front expensive arena. We're building Would you still consider that one who was so thrilled. And then golden one. It's not American. Airlines is not Toyota. I mean the the big deal for a credit union to have sponsorship on an arena on an NBA arena. They said sure we can get nine million dollars absolutely. And so what Jeff David did was he created a separate entity that sounds just like the Sacramento Kings. It's called Sacramento sports partner reasonable. I believe it. Yeah they all have these subsidiaries. It's for some money and golden one thinking they were You know giving an advanced to the kings they can help finish the arena instead paid paid nine million dollars to an entity that was owned by this guy. He did it again in a somewhat. Different fashion with Kaiser Permanente saying hey rather than give us these little cost of living or sort of inflationary increases in your annual payment for sponsorship every year. Just give us a lump sum. Now we'll do away with all that inflationary thing and that was four point four million dollars so thirteen point four boom done. It's just his money now Well not anymore So so you go. I don't WanNa spos- sorry because people people need to sit down it's a New Yorker story it's a New Yorker Crime Story. People need to sit down and readapt set aside however long it takes so you go through the process of the Kings catching him And the hero of that is an HR woman Whose name I'm Stacey something they say Weixin Who who does a lot of detective or can you tick tock through that in every discovery in the adrenaline going through? So you have the kings you have the sponsors who get duped loop. They don't talk to you for the story. Now you have the HR person does talk to you. I think You interviewed the Guy Himself prison. I I prefers prison interview vault not imprison before he goes to prison will be fly. He had to report in late August and I saw him in right after July. Four you have the most. Ah In ten years the one thing I remember from that story if I if I hope I remember more but if there is just one it will be the scene in his house when his family discovers what has happened in in particular his wife. Did you talk to her. I was able to talk to too many of the people in involvement that speak to the in laws Who Come to council and help them? When they realized that the life of this family is now falling apart right right and by the way still believing in Jeff David the man who I was GONNA ask you. They appear to still be married. No it's I think one of the things that I drew me to the story just kind of at the very the beginning is that I mean this is a guy who is maybe had some detractors and he had You know. He was sort of Bro in his in his personality. But a a guy who was by and large really well respected in the NBA. If you asked a bunch of NBA team CEO's Hey Gimme the shortlist of people who are going to be NBA team presidents residents in the next ten years. Give me the rising class. This guy's name would be on it right like They were both current and former kings employees. Or like you know you have to appreciate what a good wh- whoa. What a good force of energy he was in the office? I had one person. Tell me if you lined up a hundred kings employees in order of likelihood that they they would steal thirteen thirteen and a half million dollars from sponsors he would be at the very end of the
The Great NBA Heist: How One Man Stole Millions from the Sacramento Kings
"Fans are really familiar with the basketball side of an NBA team. You know the starting five. You probably do the general manager and the coach and then there's this parallel world in NBA Franchises. which is the business operations? Kevin Arnovitz writes about the NBA FOR ESPN NBA. Teams have senior vice president of human human resource and for the Sacramento Kings. That person is Stacey W- exit so August two thousand eighteen wags in his doing human resources stuff off for one. There's this document that executive who just left for the Miami Heat was supposed to leave behind schedule of commissions for sales reps but he forgotten to do so now she needed to dig into some files to find it so she opens up the file directory in it is a mess. She can't find in anything. There's no rhyme or reason dates or names of folders. She does find this one folder titled Turbo Tax. An inside is all kinds of just really weird stuff. There's a depreciation schedule for a golf cart in furniture at some beach house in southern California. None of this looks like anything anything that is Sacramento Kings business. And what's really weird is all of this stuff is associated with an entity. She has never heard of Wigs and looks over all this stuff and she just knows something here isn't right today the untold story of our high ranking. NBA Executive stole thirteen million dollars and almost got away with times. It's Tuesday November nineteenth this is espn presented by Dell small business. So Kevin You published your story today it starts with the Sacramento Kings Chief Revenue Officer. Who is this Guy Jeff? David is the chief Revenue Officer for the Sacramento Kings. And that's just a fancy name for the guy who deals with all the sponsorships right he's in charge of the naming rights to the arena. He's in charge of in arena. Sign Edge The practice facility sponsor and was is really well thought of in this space if you ask a bunch of business side people in the NBA. Hey you're the ten most likely people to become team presidents in the next ten years like Jeff Davids often on that list. What kind of guy was he? He was a California Bro. He was the consummate sales guy he would come into a Monday morning meeting and say let's close some phone numbers today in closing phone numbers. Jeff speak was let's close some seven-figure sponsorship deals was generally well liked as just in a abusive hug. It out kind of guy in the office. So it's an exciting time to be part of the Sacramento Kings. And he does something interesting he. He creates his own company Sacramento sports partners. Why does he do this? So we asked Jeff David what he says is that around around two thousand and eleven there was an NBA lockout and a lot of people. Really panic I mean the thing about a lockout is there's just not any revenue coming in everything's frozen and so I think a a lot of business affairs people in the NBA are just worried. Like what if I have to lose my job. Would I have to go do something else. So the Way Jeff David tells it is I created this thing because look I might need to do some consulting on the side. That's not what he does know. Jeff David starts to do something really interesting. Rather than billing sponsors answers that he gets to by signing edge in the arena through the traditional Sacramento Kings accounting he has them pay Sacramento sports partners. Which looks like if you're getting an invoice at this company that is just bought this linage? It seems perfectly appropriate. Seems like exactly the kind of entity you would pay if you're writing a check to the Sacramento Kings. UNBEKNOWNST to the company it's actually an entity owned by Jeff David that sounds like some subsidiary of the Sacramento Kings. How many retirement he did about three deals totaling a little around thirty thousand dollars to what happens next so it really starts ramping up? Two Thousand Fifteen. Two Thousand Sixteen in the Kings were moving from they're really old arena to this brand new sparkling downtown jewel box. He is the point person for the naming rights both for the Rena and the practice facility in the kings identify really David identifies to sponsors that are relatively local. One is golden one which is a credit union in California and the others. Kaiser Permanente healthcare provider Divider well-known in California kice negotiates a really good deal for both sides. I mean it's it's going to be one hundred ten million dollars over twenty years with golden old in one. They're going to have their name in lights. This is the biggest deal of Jeff. David's career and Kaiser Permanente is going to pay twenty eight million dollars over ten years to have their name on the practice facility ability. Everyone is thrilled is bosses are happy. The sponsors couldn't be happier especially golden one. Is this little credit union. They're gonNA have their name on an NBA arena. It's all really great. And then he gets creative. Has That for whatever reason David decides that he wants them for himself at a certain point. During that negotiation nation there was conversations golden one in the kings that look. If you guys ever need more cash up front were credit union. We can help. We can't keep cash on hand so whether it's finishing the arena or whatever we could possibly service Jeff David file that away and then in two thousand sixteen. After the deals completed he comes to golden one and says hey remember of those conversations. What if we did that would if you sent nine million dollars our way in an exchange will knock off some money off the later payments down in the deal? The old past two thousand twenty six down the road. Golden One couldn't be happier to help. They're thrilled with the partnership. And they wire nine million dollars to Sacramento remigio sports and then he does it again with another deal. Jeff David does something very similar with Kaiser Permanente the training facility naming sponsored Kaiser Permanente ten years twenty eight million dollars. It's now a lot of these deals. That teams do with these kinds of sponsors. They have what's called an escalator was just a fancy. See Way of saying that there's an inflationary adjustment each annual payment so jeff. David goes to Kaiser Permanent Day and says hey rather than put escalators for each of the payments. Why don't you just give us four point four million dollars up front and we'll go without escalators? Kaiser says absolutely that's absolutely fine. They send four point. Four million dollars to Sacramento's that's why partners so the has over thirteen million dollars from Kaiser and golden one teams biggest sponsors ever that get wired into his account for his own personal gain in the kings know nothing about how does no one else in the organization. have any idea that happening you. This was a question that kept getting me when I was trying to get to the bottom of the mystery and I asked Jeff David. I said you ever worried that you know on game nights when all the sponsors and the Mucky mucks are down on the floor for warm-ups and everybody socializing in the Lexus Club. That your boss wouldn't be talking to the head of Golden One Donna. Bland and and say hey thanks for floating us that my million dollars and David said it he never actually were one of the things he said is. It's sort of like Thanksgiving dinner with your family like when the sponsors interact and I was primarily the point person when they're interacting with kings officials. No one's talking about the transactional nature of your sponsorship assertion dealer your deal structure. It's almost uncouth and the truth of the matter is everybody trusted Jeff David why not he was the. NBA's consummate soccer dad. He was really really good at this job. Everybody was happy everybody was instilled with the Sacramento rising sort of spirit. That's down hollow cores being built up in here the parties responsible multiple Ford. Everybody was having a really good time and nobody was talking about the transactions at any point does he come close to getting caught. A really interesting thing happens so when it comes time for golden to make their first annual payment this is not the nine million upfront. This is just their first annual July first payment they actually send the annual payment. That's it's due to the Kings to Sacramento Sports Partners Jeff Davids entity. David has to explain. Like oh no no no. This was just the account. It was really for that nine million dollar construction auction money. Now let me you need to. I'M GONNA give this back to you and you're going to wire it to the actual kings account so nobody thinks anything of this and and you think about it. Airs Happen All the time again. Nobody was on alert that the lead sponsorship executive in

It's so funny because there's there's so many times throughout the throughout the the week that I'm watching a college basketball game or an NBA game, and they cut to a fan or they cut to a player and right away. They have to cut right out because this stuff is very very very common. Listen, we all played sports. We all are competitive one.

They got house by the sharks last time out for to one. So both these teams trying to figure it out in the early going the islanders of one of sixteen twelve played seven or fewer games. The islanders had been complaining in the early going to the NHL about the fact that they have a stop. They basically what they're calling a stop and start to their season where they have a game. But then they have a huge break. They have like a three four day break before they play their next game. The islanders though, a part of the reason for that. Is is the islanders themselves. They have a strange thing going on this season. They are splitting. They have to home-ice advantage is they're splitting their home games between the Barclay center. Brooklyn where they've been playing for the last couple of years, but they've always been complaining about the Barclay center because the Barclay center is an NBA arena. And when you put the bigger ice arena there on the NBA floor. It takes it takes out a couple of thousand seats in the islanders think that's that's a little too small for them. So they're splitting this season between Barclays center there in Brooklyn in Nassau Coliseum on Long Island. So they have a strange to wait. I mean, you get it where they play their home games Brooklyn. But they also play their home games on the island. So well tonight, they were in Brooklyn. And this game was fairly interesting. It was a to nothing lead for the islanders going to the third period. And then because they're the islanders Florida scored twice in the third. Forced overtime and in overtime, Florida wins it.
