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.

Bill is back to make Washington, DC 51st state — still faces high hurdle in Senate

"The license plates for D C. Residents read in big, bold letters and taxation without representation. It's a rallying cry against D. C is the lack of direct voting power in the U. S. Congress as NPR's Barbara Sprint reports. Statehood advocates are hopeful that what was once seen as a liberal pipe dream is now gaining traction. 30 years ago, delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton first introduced a bill for Washington D. C. Statehood. She's back at it, and this time, she says, it feels different. We've gotten off of the wish list, too. On approach of a new reality. Norton says she's encouraged by national polls that suggest growing support for statehood and the record number of co sponsors. The House legislation and its Senate counterpart, have Her bill, which strength the size of the federal district and admit the remaining area as the nation's 51st state. But Republicans stand universally opposed, arguing it would take a constitutional amendment to admit D. C as a state. Here's Georgia Congressman Jody Hice during today's House oversight hearing, the Democratic Party attempting a political power grab of obtaining more senators, that's entirely what this is all about. That phrase power grab is a constant and GOP messaging on statehood, referring to the fact that the district votes overwhelmingly for Democrats and would likely elect two Democratic senators. But Norton tells NPR that at its core statehood is not about politics while we're looking for is equality with other Americans, especially since we pay the highest federal taxes per capita in the United States, she notes that D C has a population of over 700,000 residents larger than Wyoming and Vermont. Last year when the House first past Norton's bill, Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, dismissed that point. Wyoming is a well rounded working class state. New state of Washington would not be. It was a barb that stung many residents in the district, including business owner Deana Dorsey Calloway. You can't see me, but I'm having an emotional reaction. The eyes are watering probably hear my voice quivering of it, because Just it's disgusting. It's you're a sure of an entire population of people here in Washington, advocates argue statehood is also a civil rights issue, as most of DC's residents are minorities. We do believe this is one of the most important racial justice fights of our time that stash a Rhodes, campaign manager of 51 for 51, a statehood campaign from our perspective, leaving 700,000 mostly black and brown residents without a vote in Congress is racism. D C. Residents pay federal taxes and serve in the military but have no voting Congress. This is an injustice and honestly a stain on American democracy. Norton's bill is all but guaranteed passage in the House. There's broad support from Democrats in the Senate and the White House. But there's a road block. The Senate has a big brick wall in front of its called the Filibusters that house bills are passing and slamming right into. That's Ellie's up Nick of Fix our Senate, a campaign focused on eliminating the legislative filibuster, which requires a 60 senator threshold to advance most bills. Not all Senate Democrats are on board with eliminating the maneuver, arguing it's meant to protect the minority party. But unless that brick wall is eliminated or changed, D C statehood goes back to being on the Democratic wish list.

The Truth About How to Choose the Ideal Business Accountant with Maxine Stern

"Startups and small businesses don't have much experience with professionals in the counting field. And that's why. I think it's important for them to understand what a certified public accountant is. What is well. I let me just back up and tell you what a person has to do to become a cpa as you know. There are many people in your community who work on taxes when we think of as the first thing we think of is someone who can prepare our taxes. But i hope. I'll lay out for you so many other ways that a cpa can help your business. There are many other people that can help you if you just need tax preparation but i think all businesses could use the experience. That cpa's had doing their work so the qualifications to become a cpa vary by state. They're generally the same but each state will have the details a little bit differently. I is an educational component their courses that all accountants take in accounting rules and procedures auditing management accounting tax law general business loss finance and very important one in business ethics. And i believe that's a more recent addition to the curriculum because there's been emphasis in the more recent years on having a profession. That's much more honest and open to people looking inside and seeing what they're doing anyway there's an educational component these days in many states. You have to have a master's degree to become a cpa. That was not the case until recently. Now there's also an experience component which varies by state and a national exam and then when a person qualifies by passing all those areas They have to register with their state. Licensing board to keep an active license. You have to renew it annually. And in north i think it's great that Everyone has to do forty hours of continuing education so that it keeps you up on all of the laws and in addition. You have to attest that you've had no convictions. In the court of law and ethical breaches in the past year given that you might wanna hire a cpa. That's what you'll be getting. I'd like to go over the ways of cpa can help you and your business when someone starts business a cpa can be a huge help. If you have an idea for a business or you think of what you wanna create one of your first conversation should be with a certified public accountant as many of you know everyone really needs to keep track of the business finances but there are many other ways that the cpa can help you first of all along with an attorney the cpa can help you. Think about the best structure for your business. That is whether you want to set up a limited liability company or a partnership or a corporation and the cpi should have experience so that he can he or she can say well. If you set up a partnership these might be your problems down the road or if you set up a corporation. Are you sure that this is what you wanna do for the future of your business. So that's a very interesting conversation. And once you decide that the cpa can help you in making a business. Plan particularly the Financial analysis because of that very important to figure out all aspects of the startup of the business and projecting the business into the future. So i would really recommend that. And then the cpa can also provide you with advice on the type of accounting software. You might want to have in your business and when you decide on a cpa. It may be important to have a conversation about whether that your software will interact with the one that the cpa's firm uses so that tax preparation will be quicker and more accurate and much cheaper. That's a very important thing to decide right in the beginning. Of course when you start your business you have to open a business bank account these. Cpa can help you in the business. Make sure that all of your procedures for your money. And for their revenues coming in and the expenses going out are set up so that they'll be easy to track and so that there's set up in a way that minimizes the possibility of fraud because the business owner is usually not the one who has his or her hands on all of the business procedures for example payroll for example paying bills and in the accounting world. The procedures that will help you protect your assets in the business are called internal controls and so if a your procedures is set up in a particular way it makes it much more difficult for anyone handling finances to steal the money of the business. I know that you go into business. You don't think about that. You don't think about an employee or a friend of an employee taking advantage of the good business that you have but this is very very common particularly in small businesses. When you have a one person performing multiple roles. I just think it's extremely important in the beginning to have a cpa. Just look over what you've set up and give you some pointers pudding that extra time and money into setting up business might help you protect thousands of dollars

It's amazing. how many tasks sneak onto my list. That are distractions from my bicker. Goals asking this question helps me to zero in on. What's most important and downgrade the non essentials. I obviously love that on the fly. Recognition of priorities is a must have skill for a business owner or an entrepreneur. Because things pop into your to do list on a constant basis and if we're not being constantly diligent to make sure your to do list reflects your priorities then you will waste a lot of time. another useful. tactic comes from community member. Emma peacock who's a digital marketing strategist and is the owner of honeypot digital. Here's how she manages priorities. I find. I am most productive a month of twos when each day. I write down my top three things and do those first every day. If i don't get any more done than at least that is all wrapped up. And i m moving in the right direction. Every work day genius if the first three things you do each day are your top priorities than even if you get nothing else done.

And i'm already seeing bosses gained some real clarity on what they need to be prioritizing in their business so priorities you have to know what yours are and you have to prioritize them. Think of it as one step down from non-negotiables but one step up from just your average to do list and cultivate your ability to quickly and decisively decide what takes priority it will make your daily energy input into your business immensely immensely. More impactful okay. Let's get beyond the mindsets. Which again i do eighteen episodes on an end to the real practical stuff. I wanna talk you through. Basically what a week looks like how. I manage my time with a basis of those mindsets that i talked about where i have my not negotiable and plays i'm focusing on my priorities and i know the worth of my time so every sunday usually in the late afternoon. I sit down with my laptop. My notebook independent and i plan out my week. I do this on sundays. Because usually i after noon on sundays attorney phillip itchy all anc unusually. Because just. because. I leave on friday. Evening does not mean that my brain turns off I'm an entrepreneur. So it doesn't just do that. I m not working on the weekends But usually things pop into my head. Like oh i need to remember to email that person or oh i gotta remember to tell you know a team member this thing or oh. I forgot to do this last week. Let's make sure that's on my to do list. And sometimes i will like plot a piece of paper and jot them down or i'm just collecting them in my mind usually by mandate sunday. I'm itching to like get them out of my head so that i can really sort of let go the rest of my sunday. So all those little details that have cropped by mind I need to get them out onto paper so that i can enjoy the rest of my weekend the rest of my sunday evening without feeling that. Anc feeling so. If i sit down and put them in their place on sunday and lets me enjoy the rest of my sunday and i can move into my monday morning knowing exactly what i need to do without doing this monday morning. I could feel quite overwhelmed quite Because i don't know what. I'm doing that week but waking up on monday morning after i've done this i know exactly what my path forward is for the week so i do this on sunday afternoons and remember time management is about being in control of your time and sunday evening when there's nothing else going on and with a lead time that will have me walking into my workweek. Well prepared is when and how i feel most in control of my time then i can always just finish off the hours of my weekend and ease into the week that much more easily. And i'm not the only one. I'm not the only boss who plans. They're weeks on sundays. Tasha harrison who is an author and editor member of the community who you also heard from in episode two forty two also plans her week on sunday as well so i sit down on sunday with my laptop notebook and a pin and i write out my to do list starting with the things that have come up. For me that are jumbling. Bouncing around in my noggin. Over the past few days. And then i opened my project management software which asana they are not a sponsor but i wouldn't hate it if they were and i copy down any tasks from my to do list and asana into my notebook and do this across both of my businesses so we have an asana for being boston. We have an asana for almac supply co as well and this does the job for me of consolidating my to do list into one place but it also gives me the opportunity to prioritize. I also at this time. Open up my email and without replying to a single thing. I add any email actions or replies. That i need to do that list as well which gives me what is really a master. Do list for the week now. Right away i get a good look at the weight of my responsibilities for the week if my list is less than half the page long. I'm doing good. It was longer than half the page long. I know i'm going to need some help. At which point. I will on the right side of my papers star immediately delegating out to members of my team things that i need to get off my plate or i'll draw little arrow next to them so that I know that i'm moving it to the following week. Then i opened up my calendar. My like ike. How calendar i'm anne eichel user. Anyone cares and i start scheduling it all out and by the time i'm done. I know exactly what my workweek will look like. So every task that i've written down on my to do list goes into a time slot on my calendar and sometimes i'll i'll bulk. Alcs and things app is that al-batsh when we go al batsh some things up where let's say i have you know eight email tasks or like four email tasks and whether that's replying to emails or just starting an email thread or taken an action in an email. Whatever it may be. I will badge those together into maybe like thirty minute chunk so five to use five task. Go into one little bat chassis on my calendar but also on my calendar. I'm literally writing. Emailed this person. This person this person this person this person so that each of those tasks are being clearly represented on my calendar. All of this takes less than an hour and it is the most important of my leak and with that proactive plan for my week. Laid out in front of me. That's directly related to what i need to get complete. Finish off my sunday with a sense of ease and start my monday knowing exactly what needs to.

I'm your dude right. I am not the dude that you call. If you need your house fixed or shirt so i do google how to set up these sound roofing tiles in my room and said that you need to use piece of spray and cardboard. I did that. I used adhesive spray to the soundproofing towels and then cardboard. And then i stuck it up on the wall and i came into my room this morning and there was like seven of the sound roofing tiles fell off my wall so basically what i'm saying is don't call me to fix your house because i'll just break it more so i need to spend my weekend cleaning up my soundproofing ships.

I'm only working four days a week. I'm doing legs twice a week and then to do chest shoulders and back once a week and then i do shoulders arms once a week so i'm trying to get bigger show so first week and trying to get bigger legs and then i take three red states three full days so i usually go four days on and then i'll take three days off to really let my body fully recover gromyko schedule. Works really well because it allows me to go super super hard when i'm at the gym and then when i'm off i actually get to fully relax and fully chill which gives my body the recovery that it needs to come back into next week stronger and better than ever so. That's my workout schedule right. And you know. I obviously loved jimmy guys like i love exercise and so in reality. I could be in the gym seven days week but the truth is like if i was in the gym seven days a week probably two or three. The workouts wouldn't really be good anyways. Because i'd be low on energy i'd be exhausted i'd be like i would just like be overtired and i wouldn't recover properly..

The second step is to really measure the financial and mental readiness of our our client of the business owner and Our experiences that most business owners just aren't ready to exit. You know we talk about this of a final decision. But it's not there really just not ready and reason i say that is we utilize a tool called the business exit readiness index or We caught the berry surprise. And there's actually a link to this survey on my website and if you email me i can send you an email with a link to that That survey in overtime over the years that people have business owner has been taking. This survey almost eighty percent of the small business owners that take. It aren't ready from a financial or emotional perspective. And that really tells us a lot in this way what we're trying to determine his the business owners perception of their financial readiness and what that means is can they Without a salary from the business does the business owner have enough income producing assets to comfortably support their personal family financial objectives and if they do have enough assets then maybe there got a high level of financial readiness but if they don't they've got a low level and that tells us really important information so the question around financial ready readiness is so important because it helps us it helps business owner understand if they can actually afford the exit option..

"I'm sure you know this but I think we can all do with little reminders sometimes. People have been driven to get good at something and put themselves or their wares for higher or for cell. For literally thousands of years. Business did not start when the Internet was created or when facebook launched. So, when I tell you that a good instagram strategy or a healthy email list is not what makes good business I don't want you to be shocked. Because in the long history of business is not tactics or just the right social media strategy that makes a great business. It's a great business owner. And a great business owner is a person who knows their skill who knows their customer and who has the tenacity and care to navigate the ever changing environment of business ownership in order to offer up their special something to those who need it. A successful business is such because it is run by an owner who has called evaded a deep sense of confidence and trust their inner wisdom enough to follow that little whisper of. Yes. When they hear of an opportunity that feels aligned or you when they hear of one that doesn't. To hear it another way it's not the tactic of figuring out the algorithm or jumping on a new or different strategy itself. That is special. It is the business owner who has the spark of inspiration to try the tactic or strategy in the first place. Making the business owners most powerful tool, their own intuition. Here at being boss, we've always been about cultivating confidence in your skills as a business owner than showing you how we think you should do something. It's our version of if you give a boss a fish, you feed them for a day. But if you teach them to fish, you feed them for a lifetime..

We're dealing with unemployment we're dealing with racism. Some minority business owners are really really suffering from both the riots and covert nineteen pandemic so Steve Let's go to the phones talk to the People Ida everybody You know doing this time that we're all coping with on so many different ways. We decided to take some calls and just hear from some of our listeners. We don't have a all. We don't have a topic. Topic is just what's going on in his world to down me. It's all the same thing you know a moment ago. It was covert nineteen, which was the conversation and now I think we've gotten onto something that's. Equally as important in starting to have a more resounding effect or more people than I even thought it would, which is could be a good thing for the cause, so we're going to go to some of our listeners on the phone Let's go to our first. Call is Steve Harvey. Who is this? Is My spine. I'm calling from Atlanta Georgia Hi Myra. Hey, listen. You're a business owner here. How how is this affecting you? And what would you like to say I? Would they Jesus be Bob wire fence right now because this is a lot. I have been through an economic downturn. I've been through the recession. I've been through two three Republican administrations as business owner and I can tell you I've never seen anything like this. This is crippling now. I know for a lot of businesses. Before we got the people out in the streets, pandemic has a close so many businesses. How is Your Business closed I? Don't you don't? Don't have to give the name of what what type of business do you have and is it closed? And what do you foresee happening? Wish? She thought well I can tell you. This is my tenth year in business in this brand. I've owned Salon for twenty years. Over Twenty Years Since Nineteen Ninety, nine I'm moved to Atlanta. Nights and ninety eight and when I pull you. and. We felt in have always felt like. The streets were paved with gold. This is not a political city. This is not a city like New York Chicago, Detroit L. A. The cost of living with debt for entrepreneurs. So if you could see in, believe it, you can have it that reality television Atlanta, because I've been on reality TV and I know what that looks like, but this is real business people who if you set your mind to something and you had a drink could accomplish it, and it was not stagnant based on. On politics and the cost of living allowed it to be that, but this pandemic was nothing. Anybody could have prepared for in any way shape or form this the not like the housing crisis. It's not like the great recession where you could blame people who have forecast or over leveraged. This was something that was beyond our control and I'm in the beauty business where we can't. We can't say six feet away. You have to touch people and my salons and businesses have been closed since March twenty third. We opened three weeks ago. And to fifteen percent of the revenue that we normally do during this time of the year, which is our busiest time of the year, which is prom season, which is tax season, which is Mother's Day? Every major holiday before June is off big time of the season and our business was at zero. And it was if I hadn't been the type of business that I am. My employees wouldn't have I. See a dime because my employees are actual employees. They're not subcontractors their employees, so if it weren't for the federal government stepping in and giving the extra six hundred dollars on top of the basic unemployment that they get, they would have been homeless, and this is disheartening. It's sad. It's troubling and all of this. It's too much. Too much while. I understand that and now you know we we. We put in for you I mean we're praying for everybody to get through. This is still going to be some challenges even with the stimulus packages, and and even when it gets back to a sense of normality, still gonNa be a bit it just is. It's going to be a bit. It's GonNa. Take a while to get back to normal and I don't know what the norm is. GonNa look like either I don't know if it's going to be. Anything like it before I can play that. There would be what we had before. And you know what I'm okay. I mean things change. You know life has changed. Maybe this will cause some other things to be looked at everything so hanging there.

"You know I never wanted to be a small business owner when I first started out in the early early eighties. I want to be President of IBM but for me. I then got tired of my boss. There who promoted incompetent people over myself so I struck on my own. My next guest is also an accent. Entrepreneur Markets Babcock. Start out as a personal trainer at a big box gym when he was twenty which eventually led to strike on his own. Her Name Mobile Mobile Studio and eventually formed a partnership with fellow personal trainer but at time he was twenty four. Marcus welcome to the show. Great to be here today. It's good I fine for most small business owners. If we knew actually what we're in for we probably never would have struck out on our own because it's just way too crazy absolutely it's kind of the debris mindset in the beginning like. I could be my own boss and comes second. So so why is that? Isn't that because we read all the things about these great incredible success stories? And we think we'RE GOING TO BE THE NEXT. Michael Dell Bill Gates. Yeah exactly I think in some peoples cases like myself. It's it's forced onto them so I actually ended up getting laid off at the big box gym and Had become a small business owner but then just the dream of. Hey now my future is really in my control. And I'm very confident myself and I'm GonNa make the same big of course that's the dream like. Okay now I work for myself. I can work anytime I want to with anybody that I want to. It's going to be fantastic. I control over my own life but it doesn't quite turn out that way does it. Yeah no not not quite You find yourself working more hours Less less pay more expenses. And you're not like really doing the fun stuff anymore. You're not doing the stuff that you were doing beforehand. Which my case was actually doing the training with with the people who is more about the marketing bringing New People on organizing all of that. And I think that's the most difficult part of having your own business because most of us get started to solve a problem. Help a customer but we don't realize there's all this other stuff right around running a business as you said marketing keeping track of. Who's paid who hasn't paid setting appointments all the things that kind of get in the way of actually doing the work yeah. It was very humbling. I was like Oh yeah I can. I can definitely track money on my own I can. I can organize my calendar on my own. I can keep track of all my clients Piece of paper or my head and then it actually start scaling and I'm going. Whoa spending twelve hours a day trying to manage the business. And then you know it felt like another twelve hours doing the actual training and that's a that's a real big issue. You said when you scale tell us about your journey and how it all worked out so when I was in the big box gym I had like a or nine clients which was a good load for me I was also doing a full time college at the time too and then a little thing called college right. Exactly just mixed in there Anyone I struck out on my own I actually took a year off college and decided to Kinda grow. That business I.

"Almost twenty years and served on our operating board. Jax thank you for being here with us today. Thank you good to have you jack. You and I Week ago were on spring break and we came home Monday morning and went right into what we've kind of called a war room. We took our normal operating board meeting and our weekly rhythm and disrupted that and said. Let's just jump in with all of our leaders Dave and start figuring out how we're going to respond to everything that's going on out there and so I want our listeners and viewers to remember that we also operating a business just like you guys and we're trying to figure out how to respond just like you guys. Are we all have new problems? Now that we're working to solve together so Jack Monday morning we come in. There's a little bit of energy in the air. What was going through your mind when we came back from spring break and realize like we've got a whole new situation on our hands it was so surreal because we left both of us left and things were sort of cautious like we were waiting to see how things might go and while we were gone. All of a sudden are building is emptied out everybody's working remotely which we had never done before We're trying to make sure things are gonNA work. We're trying to figure out. How do we do business while people are gone? How do we lead remotely which we had never done and we come back in and everything is different and all the plans that we had laid out where planners here all of those plans are put on hold while we stop and go? What's really important right now. So as a business leader know certainly we're trying to lead with confidence and also it's going through our head. What is worst case scenario? How do even plan for worst case scenario when we don't really have a precedent for something like this and of course we don't panic and go to worse worse worst case scenario and we don't want to freak out our team but we also have to kind of be realistic and you know how. How have you seen us? appropriately kind of set the the level and say this is potentially how bad it can get and then back out of a plan from that point. One of my favorite quotes. I've heard during this time. It's facts are our friends and what I've learned is with me and with other seasoned leaders is when you come in your emotions will tell you that your worst case scenario is far worse normally than what your actual worst case scenario is likely to be and so when we start laying down. What do the fax tell us. What do the numbers of our business tell us if our sales dropped by this percent or this percent or this percent and what I've found is in my own leadership time if I will look at on paper what the worst case scenario the most likely worst case scenario is an deal with that and get peace with that that if everything that could go wrong goes wrong? That's our worst case scenario and just take a moment as a leader and just breathe and go. I hope that doesn't happen. But that is my worst case scenario now I can set it off to the side and go. Let's get to work. Let's get to work making sure that doesn't happen. But I've Kinda Gotten Outta my head so that that emotion doesn't just hover over meal like cloud while we're trying to work our way through this when you're putting those ideas on paper and trying to figure out what numbers to us. You know. There was a scientist who said every model is wrong but some of them are useful. Yeah you know so. I think we can't go to like trying to perfect and have a crystal ball. But there's there's something about plugging scenarios. How do you kind of get close enough and move forward with that plan versus like you know really trying to get down to the exact percent? I mean. We can't perfectly tell so. How do you balance that tension? Well here's what we did here. We came up with phases. Hey Phase one is our revenues dropped by a few percentage points or less and And it feels like this is a a a difficult time in our business but not catastrophic. And here's what that looks like. And here's what we're going to do about it. Face to is worse. Our scenario is our revenues are dropping by more. This is happening. This is happening. Maybe the government doesn't let us come back to work as quickly as we thought. And what does that look like? All the way to a third phase. Which is wow. Things are far worse. They're closer to that worst case scenario and that we've planned forum but when we got him on paper and they will change they have to be fluid. They're going to change sometimes. Daily definitely weekly but as things are changing. We're able to sort of line up. This is what the facts are telling us today. These are scenarios in phases that we laid out that helps us keep a level head while we try to work our way through this. I've talked to a lot of business owners in the last few days and there's two different conversations around Worst case scenario and what you communicate with your team Some of my friends in the business owner community. We're telling our team everything and there's some who are saying. Hey my face. Three includes laying people off. I'm not gonNa tell them that because I don't want to panic the team. What's your philosophy on? How much to share. It's a balance for me. And here's what I mean by. That is as the leader. I can handle more fearful emotions. I feel like as a season. The leader then my newest leader on the team or somebody that just moved their family across the country to start with us and so. I want to be completely honest with our team. It doesn't mean I tell them every single thing that could possibly keep them up at night and what I mean by that is I. Want to be real with my leaders. But real with my leaders not sobbing uncontrollably out of fear about how great I am this business. I still am the leader and I'm charged with taking this group of people in leading them through a crisis but if I'll be authentic and sincere and tell them guys I didn't sleep last night either. I'm afraid I'm dealing with some things I've never dealt with before now. Let's roll up our sleeves and see how we're GONNA get through this. 'cause I believe by looking at the facts and the scenarios and the talent around this table. I believe we're GONNA get through this and so it's an opportunity to be sincere not over share but be sincere. Be Honest never mislead in any way and walk people. Sometimes they can only handle little bit of information at a time. Even though you've got a greater picture in your mind a love that that is so true Jack I WanNa talk about how we get our leaders. Our team to help us solve these new problems. I've noticed just among some of our leaders in the last few days that they're still a little bit of hesitation on what is my role now. My role two weeks ago was very clear. We talk about it all the time and now all of this new information is coming down and we're making quick decisions moving really fast and I think a lot of our team wants to get it right. They WANNA help but they also still need us to say. Hey I'm looking at you. Take this ball run with it. It's not normally even your job but I just need. Somebody who know can be the champion of this thing. What's important to bring our team in terms of communication with them. Bring them into the problem so that they have clear lanes to run IT I. I'll say that I've found. That are titles right now. Have less to do with what we're doing day to day than at any other time in twenty years that I've been here the CFO might be helping carry out an initiative. That has nothing to do with accounting. And that's the same way around. Our table is whatever needs to be done. Whoever's got talent the ability and the bandwidth to move that ball forward might be given that ball that opportunity to run with for the next twenty four to forty eight hours while we move the thing forward. Here's another thing I've found is when you give people responsibilities and they share in whether or not we weather the storm or not. It gives us more confidence. It gives us more of a sense of control that we have something to do with the outcome. We feel less like a victim and we feel like we're all working together instead of relying on just the leader or the leader and a few others to get us through this. We're all responsible to do whatever it takes to get through this well. These are great tips. You know we've talked about planning for a worst case scenario. We've talked about the value of getting your plan ahead and onto paper We've talked about appropriately sharing and being pretty transparent with your team Also let them know what the problem is and invite them into that so we can work on it as a team. How do we deal with the fact that we're all running about three times harder than we were just a month ago and we're exhausted? Our teams exhausted. I don't know about you but I mean I'm jumping out of bed first thing in the morning and it's just like this time-warp you know and I look up and all of a sudden it's nine or ten o'clock at night and I'm getting off a call and and I love a part of that because I just feel like our whole team is coming together and over communicating and working to do whatever it takes and I also know and and you do too that. It's not sustainable. So the value of downtime the value of taking a break and figuring out okay. How how am I going to pull back from the chaos for a second? How can we give ourselves permission to still do that? When everything's on fire when there is a fire in the business or just in your life when there's a crisis adrenaline goes way way up and all of a sudden you've got energy that maybe you didn't have before this crisis and you are able to work harder longer hours make decisions faster. And there's a certain amount of of positivity in that and adrenaline energy in that and we teach people to do the same thing when they're getting out of debt. Hey take an extra job. Throw some pizzas. Do whatever it takes but just as we've learned and getting out of debt that you can't do that as a long term plan you can't lead twenty four hours a day for a long period of time without hitting a wall and you may not see the wall coming but your body and your mind have a limit to where that adrenaline is. GonNa run out. And if you don't have a planned break in there to recharge your own batteries personally spiritually physically resting if you're not if you're not taking care of sort of the four walls of who you are as a then you're just going to run out of gas and you're not GonNa do your team too good. You got to plan. Some downtime. To recharge spiritually physically emotionally relational Jack Unit. I've talked about this. One of what I believe is one of the greatest leaders to ever walk. The face of this earth is Jesus Christ and if you read the Bible like I do you'll see times where Jesus was healing people and the multitudes were lined up and then all of a sudden he just went away to be alone and it never says in the scripture when everybody was healed then he took a break I mean. Can you imagine this line of people like a greeting line? And he just has to pick. And Say Hey. I'm sorry I can't get to you and help you right now because I've got to go be alone and pray. Recharge my batteries and so often think you know if Jesus did that None of us are him even as leaders. We WanNA fix every problem out there and unfortunately we're not going to fix every problem. I think is what we're saying Jack. This has been incredible before we jump off. Any final thoughts are words of encouragement for leaders right now in the midst of this chaos. Speak to their heart. My final thoughts are this. If you find yourself out of control. And there's some forced downtime a Lotta Times it's business owners. We are so busy working in the business that we're really not able to stop work on the business and we complain about that all the time. There's not enough time to stop and really think strategically about the next ten years. This is the perfect time for that. This is thinking time. It's also relationship time when this storm passes and it will. Your team will remember the things you said and did during the storm. Use this as a time to encourage to inspire to lift others up when you see them. Getting tired and weak use this a time to build relationships or to mend broken relationships and win this passes. You will be glad you did jack. Thank.

"No you said on our operating board and and Dave is very much in this stage right now where he's thinking about how our business nine hundred people lives is passed him. So what has it been like to get to spend time with a business owner that is in that stage. Well it's really great. You know and I gotta be honest. I was really in mature and and kind of naive in my world view about business when I started here and Davis taught me so much about thinking about this idea of legacy and what. I've learned what I've been inspired by as I've ever as I've said at his feet and I've I've heard more about this idea of second generation and third generation fifth-generation businesses that are thriving. You know it really is sad when somebody works as hard as most business owners work to build something and they're planting in these is fields that at the end of their time that the whole field just dries up. That's really sad. It doesn't have to be that way because they're still employees. They're still customers you. You've done all the hard work to get something off the ground. Nurture it and feed it and it should live beyond you. That's one of the really cool things about businesses. You can create something that for generations to come continues to have some type of life some type of energy some type of blessing people whether it's the the team or the customers hours and of course it's going to evolve and shift and the business model is GonNa look different from generation to generation but you could start something and get it into motion and so I would just challenge you know if you're on the treadmill and you go on sounds great but I'm just trying to pay the bills I get it. It's hard to think about legacy at that stage but ultimately what's life really about out. It's not about us. It's not about just growing our lifestyle and in the bills and and getting to have material success. It's about investing in people and bring in life into to the world in a way that they're really empowers people and builds people and so we get to do that with our team we get to do with our customers and and hopefully we get to do it in a way where they get to continue. Doing that was something we started even. We're not here well there. You have it the treadmill operator. The Pathfinder a trailblazer the peak performer. And it's all in and the pursuit of being a legacy builder Daniel and Sarah. Thanks so much for your time today. Thank you for walking this path so that others. May You know as you're listening to that the thing that's probably going through your head is okay. Well what stage am I am. What stages our business in and as you start to become more aware aware of kind of where you self identify as a business leader the next question that always comes up for someone that's growth oriented is okay? Well how do I get the next level. How do I get to the next stage? And that's a question we've asked for a long time now and we're starting to get some answers because we've learned from business owners around the country that if you're going to move from one stage of business. Ns to the next. It always demands intentional and deliberate focus on six key areas and so as Daniel and Sarah said if you want to know where to go you gotTA. I don't know where you are. And so we've created an assessment to really evaluate your strengths and weaknesses as a leader in each of these six key areas..
