Different types of vehicles may require different types of coverage. ​ Aged Receivables Insurance Aged receivables insurance is a form of insurance that protects businesses from unpaid invoices. It can be useful for businesses that offer credit terms to their customers. The coverage amount is based on the amount of credit extended and the risk involved. ​ Umbrella Insurance Umbrella insurance provides additional coverage on top of existing policies, such as general liability. It is useful for businesses that need higher coverage limits to meet the requirements of certain vendors or contracts. Umbrella insurance can provide extra protection in case of large claims or lawsuits. ​ Online Quoting and Binding for Workers Compensation Insurance Southern Insurance Providers offers online quoting and binding for workers compensation insurance on their website.

Only around 10% of the plant industry is currently on social media, indicating a lot of opportunity to expand and make connections. Social media can be used to generate sales and be a powerful tool in the industry. Plantiful's Potential Impact Plantiful has the potential to be a powerful asset to the industry by providing efficiency, inventory management, and new sales opportunities. The platform can be expanded to include multiple offerings and become a hub for the entire industry. Word of mouth is crucial for advertising and growth in the industry.

The Situation Willie's right-hand man, who handled sales, was leaving the company. He had a lot of responsibilities, including answering phones, directing trucks, and ensuring that orders were correct. Willie had to find a way to fill this position quickly. Finding a Solution Willie gathered the team and asked for volunteers to take on the responsibilities that the departing employee had. The team members chose to take on certain responsibilities and were given a raise and a bigger title. The departing employee coached them for the next two weeks. Willie took on the sales position himself temporarily. Eddie suggested that the secretary, who was already showing sales tendencies, could be a good fit for the position. She was given the position, her pay was doubled, and she had many opportunities for growth. Looking Within the Business Willie emphasizes the importance of knowing your employees' hobbies, interests, and goals. By understanding these things, opportunities can be created for employees to grow and help the business. Creating a Positive Culture Willie emphasizes the importance of having a positive culture within the business. He established a family-like culture where everyone knows each other's hobbies and interests. This culture helps to ensure that everyone is aligned and mingles well together. Hiring from Within Willie hired a guy who was planting plants to help with buying because sales were climbing. The new hire was trained and learned everything about the plants and how to talk to clients and vendors. By hiring from within, Willie was able to give someone an opportunity for growth while also helping the business. Conclusion Looking within the business and creating a positive culture can help to create opportunities for growth and help the business to thrive. Importance of Establishing a Positive Culture with Employees (10:00 - 19:58) Willie establishes a culture where employees can come talk to him openly. Establishing a good culture creates a pleasant place to work and creates opportunities for growth. Having a good relationship with employees allows them to voice their feelings and ideas, creating a family within the business. Creating a community within your business helps elevate it for the long term. Fulfillment Through People and Giving Back Money is not the only thing that fulfills a person; helping people and creating opportunities for them is also fulfilling. Establishing good relationships and caring for employees can create a positive atmosphere and retain staff. Creating opportunities for employees can help them grow and bring value to the business. It's important to have a clear game plan and save up before leaving a job with a negative atmosphere. Creating Opportunities for Growth Establishing a good culture can lead to opportunities for growth, such as creating a podcast or starting a new business venture. Helping employees grow and giving them opportunities can lead to more income and fulfillment. It's important to establish honest relationships with employees and trust in their abilities. People who are moving forward are always looking for someone who can help them. Positive company culture (20:00 - 30:00) The company has a fast-paced culture where everyone is busy and productive. A positive, open atmosphere encourages creativity and open communication. The team is referred to as the "Dream Team" and is trusted to take on challenges and come up with creative solutions. The boss prays for the team and believes in their potential for growth. Positive culture and inclusivity make people feel appreciated and help them level up in their roles. Investing in the business Implementing technology and innovative solutions can cut payroll costs and increase productivity. Reinvesting in the business can free up time and resources to pursue other goals. Asking employees what they need to be more productive and efficient can lead to better results. Opportunities for growth within the company are available for those who want to climb. Deisy's Story Deisy is the head of sales at A Ornamental. The boss felt a strong energy from her message when she applied for the job. Deisy's story is a testament to being in the right place at the right time and being open to opportunities. A positive company culture and open communication allowed for her to level up in her position.

EP44 HEAT ORDINANCE OVERVIEW Introduction (00:00 - 09:58) The podcast features two individuals from Costa Farms, the Florida Nursery, Growers and Landscape Association (FNGA), and the Florida Farm Bureau discussing the proposed heat ordinance in Miami-Dade County. The episode aims to inform listeners about the proposed ordinance, its implications, and what they can do about it. Speakers Ariana Cabrera de Ona is the senior Vice President Chief people officer and general counsel for Costa Farms. She has been in the industry for 17 years. Barney Rutzke is the president of the Dade County Farm Bureau and the vice president of the Dade County FNGA chapter. He has worked in all aspects of Agriculture from the fields to management to mechanicing in the shops. How the ordinance was proposed A heat ordinance was proposed in Miami-Dade County by a commissioner. After good conversations about practices and the fact that OSHA already governs heat standards, the previous heat ordinance was quietly withdrawn. A new heat ordinance was proposed by Commissioner McGee and Commissioner Besen, which was worse than the previous one and targeted only Agriculture and construction. Agriculture and horiculture were the only categories that the proposed ordinance applied to, and it did not apply to any other outdoor worker in Miami-Dade County. The proposed ordinance was based on very old data that did not take into account current conditions, practices, and oversight in the Agriculture and horiculture Industry. Implications of the proposed ordinance The proposed heat ordinance will discriminatorily affect only Agriculture and construction. It does not make sense because it should be for all outdoor workers. The industry already has regulations in place that mandate water, bathrooms, and shade for employees, which are overseen by OSHA and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Service. The proposed ordinance could affect the employer, landlord, partner, coworker, and employees. What people can do about it Agricultural and horicultural organizations, including Farm Bureau and FNGA, mobilized to talk to Commissioners and ensure they knew what was in the proposed ordinance. People can call Farm Bureau, FNGA, or Costa Farms to ask what is going on. People can educate themselves about the proposed ordinance and what actions they can take to oppose it. Background and introduction (10:00 - 19:57) The speaker believes that the implication that they are not taking care of their employees is not true. Nursery employees have access to water, ice, and lunch breaks. Different nurseries have different break schedules. Employees are free to take breaks as needed and go to the restroom or get a drink of water whenever they need to. The organization We Count is a labor activist organization that speaks on behalf of employees in agriculture and construction. The speaker believes that what We Count is doing is great for industries that treat their employees poorly, but not all industries treat their employees poorly. County's response during COVID-19 During COVID-19, the county worked closely with the industry to provide testing, masks, vaccination drives, and education. The CDC came to Miami-Dade County to tour facilities and take back best practices for the rest of the country. Proposed ordinance The proposed ordinance includes fines and a new office in Miami-Dade County dedicated to health and welfare. The new office will be funded 100% by fines, which opens the door to fine-based inspections. OSHA already has rules in place for employee safety, which include giving notice before inspections. The proposed ordinance would allow the county to come onto properties without notice, which could lead to an expansion of regulation. The fine-based system creates an environment where employees can easily sue their employers. Fines range from $1,000 to $3,000 per person, and there is no appeal process. The proposed ordinance requires a heat plan, a mandatory 10-minute break every two hours, enough shade for every person, and specific water temperature. Employers must verbally remind employees to drink water every two hours and have a supervisor for every 20 employees. Co-workers are also liable, and the liability expands to subcontractors, farm labor contractors, owners, and landlords. If an employer receives a fine, they will be put into a public database, allowing for attorneys to get involved. Overview (20:00 - 30:00) A new cause of action to sue employers has been proposed. Existing causes of action and regulations already exist for employers. The proposal creates additional ways to sue employers. Targeting of Industries The proposal may target industries such as nurseries, farmers, and construction workers in Miami-Dade County. The organization behind the proposal may benefit attorneys and unionizing the workforce. It is unclear if politicians understand the potential effects of the proposal on these industries. Passion for the Industry The speakers are passionate about their industry and feel that the proposal is personal. Employees in the industry are cared for and will voice concerns about working in high heat. The statistics used to support the proposal may be misleading. Proposed Ordinance The ordinance uses the heat index to determine high heat instead of a straight temperature. Proposed acclimatization requirements in the ordinance may not be necessary for those working in the industry. A coalition has been formed with associations in the construction industry to combat the proposal. Proposed Solution The coalition proposes an education and training program instead of a new agency and regulations. The program would focus on educating employers and employees on heat safety and prevention. Introduction (30:02 - 40:00) The speaker believes that people should be given a chance to learn before implementing any heat ordinance. Certification or taking a Class A video should be provided to educate employees. Need for Heat Ordinance The speaker questions the need for a heat ordinance and states that there is no evidence that it is necessary. There should be a good reason and proper conditions to implement such an ordinance. The speaker has never had any complaints from their employees and believes that they take good care of them. Action to Take People need to call their Commissioners and ask them to vote no on the heat ordinance. A list of every commissioner's number, email address, and name should be provided in the description. Calling is crucial and takes only about 25 minutes. A petition link will also be provided for people to show their opposition to the ordinance. Impact on Industries The heat ordinance will be catastrophic for the agriculture and construction industries. It will drive a lot of people out of business and affect the economy. Even those not directly affected by the ordinance, like landscapers, will be impacted by increased plant prices. Discrimination The ordinance is discriminatory towards agriculture and construction industries, compared to other industries like car washes and boat detailing. Only six or seven other states have such an ordinance, and they piggyback off existing OSHA fines. OSHA Regulations OSHA is already addressing new or revised standards for heat that would apply nationwide. OSHA fines are already existing, and there is no need for new ones. Appeal The speaker appeals to Commissioners to inform themselves thoroughly and understand the impact on businesses. Educate the people in the industry and start with that. Final (40:02 - 40:53) The hosts, Willie and Eddie, thank listeners for tuning in and promise to bring relevant content for the green industry. Listeners can connect with the hosts on Instagram at both the Plant Movement Podcast and A's Ornamental Nursery.

EP43 HUMANE IGUANA CONTROL OVERVIEW Introduction (00:00 - 09:59) Michael and Michelle from Humane iguana control talk about the negative impact of iguanas in South Florida. Michael had a landscaping business before he got into iguana control when he noticed his plants were being eaten by iguanas. ​ ​ The Problem with Iguanas Iguanas are an invasive species that eat lush tropical landscape plants, causing thousands of dollars of damage. They also dig burrows that can cause structural damage over time. Iguanas negatively impact the ecosystem by eating native species such as the Miami blue butterfly, and their burrows can harm native bird species. Iguanas were brought to South Florida through the pet trade market in the 1960s. ​ ​ Iguana Control Humane iguana control removes over 3,000 iguanas in South Florida. Michael and Michelle want to educate people about the negative impact iguanas have on the environment and agriculture. Humane iguana control also offers pest control services for raccoons and snakes. Humane iguana control plans to focus on python control next, as they are another invasive species causing harm to the Everglades. ​ ​ Introduction (10:00 - 19:58) The speaker discusses the impact of iguanas in South Florida. ​ ​ Iguana Predators Alligators are a predator for Burmese pythons, but they may not be able to prey on larger iguanas. Other predators of smaller iguanas include hawks, owls, and raccoons. Raccoons may not be a main predator of iguanas but may climb trees at night and eat them alive. ​ ​ Iguana Species in South Florida There are two invasive iguana species in South Florida: black spiny-tailed iguana and green iguana. Other lizards in the area include the red agama, which the speaker plans to capture and sell to pet stores. ​ ​ Iguana Infestation and Services The iguanas were introduced to South Florida through the pet trade. The speaker's company offers services to remove iguanas from properties and prevent them from returning. Services include monthly visits, six-month to one-year services, and night visits to locate and capture iguanas. The company does not offer traps as iguanas prefer to eat vegetation. Iguanas defecate frequently and may leave stains on surfaces such as pool decks. The speaker suggests a need for birth control or population control measures for iguanas. ​ ​ Conclusion The speaker discusses the need for balance in the ecosystem and the importance of controlling iguana populations for the sake of native species and the environment. ​ ​ Introduction (20:01 - 30:00) The guest speakers are experts in catching iguanas. They provide preventive maintenance to stop iguanas from entering properties. ​ ​ Challenges of Iguanas Iguanas are common in Florida and like to poop in pools. Health risks are associated with iguana feces. Hotels with pools and playgrounds are at risk of being sued for iguana feces. Having children is a full-time job, and being an entrepreneur adds more tasks. People without children have the potential to go after more opportunities. The Guest Speakers The guest speakers have three children and are building their business together. They have a YouTube channel where they post videos of their iguana-catching adventures, including using drones to assist them. They also provide preventive maintenance by using clear acetate around trees and fences to prevent iguanas from climbing. ​ ​ Preventive Maintenance The guest speakers provide preventive maintenance by scoping out the area for entry points and recommending landscaping materials that iguanas don't like. They suggest that homeowners speak to their landscaper or consult with them before investing in a landscape. They also recommend installing plants like bromeliads, Simpson Stoppers, silver button woods, and fire bush that iguanas don't like ​ ​ Conclusion The guest speakers are available 24/7 to assist with iguana, snake, and rodent problems. Their contact information can be found in the link in the bio. ​ Notification for Next Edition (30:02 - 30:12) The speaker advises the audience to press a button to receive a notification when the next edition of the plant movement is available.
