Kadee Malone, eldest daughter of Karl Malone. Karl is considered one of the greatest power forwards in NBA history. Playing college ball at Louisiana Tech University, Utah Jazz of course and LA Lakers. Kadee who is lovingly referred to as "the boss lady" talks about how she's built Legends Cigar lounge and brand with her dad.

 

While he was collaborating with La Aurora on his personal cigar, it became clear that Karl wanted to create a place in his hometown where he and his friends and family could enjoy a smoke and fellowship.  That eventually led them to open Legends Cigar and Vape in Ruston, Louisiana, where the family resides.  Building the cigar lounge took three years, and provided an opportunity for his daughter, Kadee, to lead the construction and design effort.



Kadee’s vision was to create a rustic lounge with a spacious, yet cozy atmosphere that had plenty of places to smoke and talk.  She incorporated sports memorabilia and family photos from Karl’s career in basketball and also of the talented family’s various sports accolades.  The shop also celebrates the great state of Louisiana and their beloved hometown of Ruston. As a result of her input and the focused efforts Kadee made through the lounge design and development process, Karl trusted Kadee to take the lead and was ready to hand her the keys. Karl said, “I called her one morning and had her come to the store.  I just said ‘Congratulations, you’re the owner.’” Since then, Kadee has been the driving force behind expanding Legends’ offerings – from cigars to vape, cigar related products, and now CBD

Have you ever wanted to brew your own beer? YOU CAN BREW IT!

I had the pleasure to have a discussion with Martin Keen on his own brewing journey and his approach to Youtube.  Martin is working to brew all 99 beers in 99 weeks! He has the goods on his channel which offers brew days, see the recipes, and check out the home brew beer tastings.

Homebrewing is still a hobby for Martin who works "9-5" in tech but his operation between the systematic approach of equipment, time spent in brewing, editing and more is almost a nice small business in itself.

Matt Miller, founder of SchoolSpiritVending.com, started this  journey out of desperation to support his family and with just one gumball machine, he quickly scaled to more machines and realized it was a business that could stick. Matt transformed this passive income business into a franchise designed to help schools raise funds they needed as an alternative to some of the traditional ways, installing spirit merchandise vending machines that replaced the need for kid-powered door-to-door fundraising. People began to reach out to Matt on how they could repeat this in their own area.

If you want to learn more about the vending businesses as a source of income...even as a side hustle, tune in to hear Matt’s story. He’ll share his tips on getting started as a franchise owner, partnering with schools, and how parents and kids can learn entrepreneurial skills as a family.

Matt and I cover;

  • The story of Matt’s first gumball machine and how he scaled to more.
  • Spirit School Vending: The business model and and changing how schools fundraise.
