FROM NBA HALL OF FAMER TO ALL- STAR BUSINESSMAN, SHAQUILLE O’NEAL DISCUSSES HIS SUCCESS OFF THE COURT. AND AS FEARS OF ANOTHER ECONOMIC DOWNTURN RISE, ANOTHER AT ADDITION OF YAHOO U TELLS US WHAT DEFINES AN ECONOMIC RECESSION. HE IS A FORMER NBA CHAMPION AND HE HAS HAD, ADDED ENTREPRENEUR TO HIS WAS MY. HIS NEWEST VENTURE IS CALLED STUDY. IT TRACKS INCOME AND MANAGE HIS FINANCES. JOINING US FIRST ON YAHOO FINANCE, SHAQUILLE O’NEAL AND THE COFOUNDER AND CEO AND COFOUNDER OF STUDY ADAM ROSEMAN. THINK IT’S COMING IN. SO FIRST OF ALL, I WANT TO GET A LITTLE BIT OF BACKGROUND ON STEADY ND WHAT EXACTLY IT IS. SO IF YOU ARE A GIG WORKER AND THERE ARE A LOT OF THEM COME IN INCREASING NUMBERS, WHAT DOES THIS DO FOR THEM? >>SURE. SO IF YOU ARE A GOOD WORKER TODAY, THE LIKELIHOOD IS YOU HAVE HIGH INCOME VOLATILITY. IT USUALLY HAS 30% MONTH OVER MONTH VOLATILITY. THE HARDEST THING IS TO FIND EXTRA INCOME. TODAY YOU GO TO THE STUDY APP, ENTER YOUR ZIP CODE AND SEE A LIST OF EXTRA INCOME OPPORTUNITIES. YOU CAN FURTHER REFINE THE SPACE UNDER QUALIFICATIONS. AS WE CARRY FORWARD, WE ARE HALF WORKFORCE AND HAVE FINANCIAL COMES, WE CAN SEE HOW THEY ARE EARNING AND HOW THEY ARE PERFORMING. WHEN YOU PUT ALL OF THAT DATA TOGETHER, YOU ARE ABLE TO COME UP WITH A NICE PICTURE OF HOW ARE THE BEST WAYS FOR PEOPLE TO EARN BASED ON THEIR SKILL SET, GEOGRAPHY AND VARIETY OF OTHER FACTORS? >>SHAKEEL, WOULD YOU COME INTO THIS? OF YOU SO YOU DON’T HAVE A REGULAR DATA. YOU ARE NOT A SALARY GUY ANYMORE. IN A WAY, YOU ARE A BIG WORKER I GUESS. >>NOT ONLY THAT, WHEN I MET ANDY, HE SAID YOU WANT TO HELP PEOPLE, HELP THEM BUILD A SUSTAINABLE INCOME? I SAID SURE AND WE STARTED TALKING ABOUT GIGS. IT TOOK ME BACK. MOTHER AND FATHER BOTH HAD EXTRA JOBS. TO PUT SHOES ON MY FEET, CLOSE ON MY BACK. SO I JOINED THE TEAM AND I WAS PART OF THE RESEARCH. DOING THE RESEARCH, I WENT OUT AND CHATTED WITH PEOPLE AND THAT WITH GIG WORKERS AND TALKED ABOUT WHY THEY WERE DOING IT, A LOT OF PEOPLE DO HAVE JOBS BUT THEY JUST WANT THE EXTRA INCOME TO PAY EXTRA BILLS. THEY HAVE KIDS OR THEY JUST WANT TO GO ON VACATION. ABOUT 70 MILLION PEOPLE, INCLUDING PEOPLE WHO HAVE JOBS THAT REALLY DO GIGS. SO WE ALSO WANT TO ENSURE THAT THE APP IS VERY EASY FOR PEOPLE WHEN THEY COME ON. YOU WANT TO JUST BUILD A SUSTAINABLE INCOME AND GET EXTRA INCOME? WE CAN HELP YOU OUT. GO TO YOUR PHONE, DOWNLOAD STEADY. >>I THINK THAT THIS IS KIND OF INTERESTING IN THE CURRENT GIG ECONOMY WE LIVE IN. IT IS A DIFFERENT TIME THAN 20 HAVEN’T 30 YEARS AGO. WHEN IT COMES TO THIS APP, DO YOU GUYS CONSIDER YOURSELVES TO BE A COMPETITOR TO A MONSTER OR AND AND DEED? AND HOW DO YOU GET THE WORD OUT? I KNOW IN A LOT OF CASES IS NOT THAT THERE AREN’T JOBS FOR PEOPLE CAN’T FIND THEM. >>WE DON’T VIEW OURSELVES AS A COMPETITOR TO THOSE AND THE REASON IS, WHO IS THEIR CUSTOMER? WHEN YOU LOOK AT INDEED, MONSTER, THE CUSTOMER IS THE EMPLOYER. THE CUSTOMER IS A CONTRACTING PARTY. THEIR SOLUTION IS TO CREATE THE BEST POSSIBLE EXPERIENCE AND OUTCOME FOR THE INDIVIDUAL OR THE COMPANY THAT IS PAYING THE BILL. FOR US, OUR CUSTOMER IS THE USER. THERE IS NOT A PLATFORM TODAY THAT FOCUSES ON CREATING THE BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOME FOR THAT HOURLY WORKER. FOR THAT LOW SKILLED WORKER. THERE LEFT ON THEIR OWN TO GO TO MONSTER AND TYPE SOMETHING INTO A SEARCH BAR. WELL IF YOU HAVE BEEN DOING RETAIL CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR 10 YEARS, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO TYPE INTO THE SEARCH BAR? RETAIL CUSTOMER SERVICE. WHERE IS THE ABILITY TO MOVE ON? TO GET ON A PATH OF ASCENSION OWING FORWARD? THERE IS NOTHING FOR THOSE PEOPLE. >>SHAQUILLE O’NEAL, LISTED ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS APPROACH. YOU HAVE WORKED WITH A LOT OF DIFFERENT BRANDS. GENERAL INSURANCE, KRISPY KREME, RING, HAVING COVER SPORTS BUSINESS FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS, YOUR WORK WITH PAPA JOHN’S IS A GOOD EXAMPLE. ATHLETES NO LONGER TAKE A FEE AND APPEAR IN AND ADD. NOW THEY WANT EQUITY OR GET ON THE BOARD. TELL ME ABOUT THAT SHIFT ACROSS RETIRED ATHLETES THAT YOURSELF. HOW DO YOU THINK ABOUT WHICH COMPANIES YOU WANT TO PARTNER WITH? >>TO BE HONEST WITH YOU, I DON’T PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE DOING. BY STYLE AND BY METHOD HAS ALWAYS BEEN, IF IT IS GOING TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE? I HEARD JEFF BASIS SAY THAT IS HOW HE INVEST IN THINGS. IF IT’S GOING TO CHANGE PEOPLE’S LIVES, HELLS PEOPLE, IT IS GOOD. WHEN I FIRST MET ANDY, WE STARTED TALKING ABOUT STEADY. EVERYONE WANTS EXTRA INCOME SO I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE GOOD. THE PAPA JOHN’S SITUATION, I REALIZE THERE WAS A PROBLEM THERE. THEY DIDN’T HAVE ANY DIVERSITY ON THE BOARD. ALWAYS WANTED TO BECOME A FRANCHISEE. NOT FOR MONEY PURPOSES. ONE DAY I WAS READING AN ARTICLE AND I WAS TALKING ABOUT THE BEST RETIRED ATHLETE BUSINESSMAN AND I THOUGHT MY NAME IS GOING TO BE AT THE TOP, WHEN I SAW MY NAME WASN’T AT THE TOP, LOOK, I AM A COMPETITOR I LIKE CHALLENGES. IT GOT ME TO THINKING. IT WAS, I WAS NUMBER FOUR AND MAGIC JOHNSON AND THEN MICHAEL JORDAN AND THEN A FELLOW BY THE NAME OF JUNIOR BRIDGEMAN. JUNIOR BRIDGEMAN OWNS A LOT OF WENDY’S. I WANT TO GET INTO THE FRANCHISE BUSINESS. I USED TO BE IN THE FRANCHISE BUSINESS. HAD 155 GUYS, SO THOSE. WHAT CAN I DO NOW? AND THEN I SAW THE PAPA JOHN’S. PAPA JON’S AND COLLEGES BIG FOR ME. IT WAS WHAT I ORDERED. AND I MET WITH STEVE RITCHIE AND JEFF SMITH I SAID I WOULD LIKE TO BE INVOLVED IF I COULD BE ON THE BOARD AND IF I COULD PURCHASE A COUPLE FRANCHISES. >>SO THAT BRINGS ME TO THE IDEA OF RETIRED ATHLETES AND WHAT THEY SHOULD DO. THERE IS A LOT OF CHALLENGES FOR ATHLETE WHO ARE CURRENTLY PLAYING. WE HAVE SEEN RECENT EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE FINANCIAL TROUBLES. WHAT WOULD YOU TELL THEM BOTH WHILE THEY ARE STILL PLAYING AND AFTER THEY RETIRE IN TERMS OF ANY INVESTING ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE THEM? >>I WOULD TELL THEM DON’T ALWAYS TRY TO GO TO THE QUICK MONEY. EVERY TIME I HAVE MADE AN INVESTMENT BASED ON I WAS GOING TO DOUBLE OR TRIPLE OR QUADRUPLE MY MONEY, I LOST EVERY TIME. EVERY TIME I JUST TOOK MY TIME, DID MY DUE DILIGENCE, DID MY RESEARCH, THOUGHT ABOUT IT, MY FIRST MAJOR INVESTMENT WAS GOOGLE. THE GUY SAID, IN THE FUTURE. NOT NOW, IN THE FUTURE. PHONES, SEARCH ENGINES, THIS INFORMATION. THAT IS GOING TO WORK. THAT IS GOING TO WORK. IT IS NOT GOING TO WORK NOW BUT I CAN SEE IT IN THE FUTURE. THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME I REALLY STARTED THINKING ABOUT INVESTING. THEN I STARTED LOOKING AT EVERYBODY ELSE IS DOING. JEFF BEZOS, A LOT OF OTHER SUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEURS. I WOULD JUST TRY TO FIGURE IT OUT. THE COMPANIES AT PARTNER OPERAS, MY STYLE IS THAT IF I DON’T BELIEVE IN YOUR PRODUCT I WILL NEVER PARTNER UP WITH YOU. I ACTUALLY FOUND RING BY ACCIDENT. IT WAS MY FIRST TIME BEING A SPOILED RICH BRAT. WHAT I MEAN BY THAT, I USED TO LIVE IN THE COMMUNITIES SO NOW IN GEORGIA, I LIVE AMONGST THE PEOPLE. I STILL WANTED TO HAVE CAMERAS AROUND THE HOUSE SO I CALLED A SECURITY COMPANY AND THE COURT WAS $80,000. I WASN’T DOING THAT. ANOTHER QUOTE WAS $50,000. I WAS AT BEST BUY AND SAW THIS LITTLE BRING CAMERA. I BOUGHT A COUPLE AND IT WORKS LIKE A CHARM. SO I GO TO THE CONFERENCE IN VEGAS AND THE TECHNOLOGY CONFERENCE AND I MET WITH JAMIE AND I WAS LIKE, LET ME HELP YOU GET THE WORD OUT ABOUT HOW BEAUTIFUL AND HOW FABULOUS THIS RING IS. IT IS AFFORDABLE. IT WORKS AS WELL AS ALL MY OTHER TOP SECURITY THINGS I HAVE IN MY HOUSE. I HAVE A LOT OF CAMERAS AT MY HOUSE THAT I CAN’T GET ACCESS ON THE PHONE. SO WHEN I SAW THIS, PEOPLE DIDN’T EVEN KNOW ABOUT IT. LUCKILY, WE WERE PURCHASED BY AMAZON FOR $1 BILLION. I JUST, I DON’T EVER THINK ABOUT MAKING MONEY. I JUST THINK ABOUT DOING THE RIGHT THING, JUST HAVING FUN AND FOR EXAMPLE, WITH STEADY. IF WE CAN HELP PEOPLE FIND EXTRA GIGS AND GET EXTRA INCOME, WE CAN HELP, I THINK IT IS POSITIVE. >>DO THINK THAT ADVICE WORKS FOR NORMAL PEOPLE ALSO? INVESTING IN THINGS THAT AREN’T GOING TO SEE A QUICK RETURN BUT ARE A GOOD LONGER-TERM FIT? >>I REMEMBER WHEN I SAID APPEAR, I DON’T ACT LIKE AN EXPERT. IT WORKS FOR ME. I DON’T WANT TO SAY YOU SHOULD DO THIS, I JUST WANT TO SAY IT WORKS FOR ME. >>SHOP, PEOPLE TALK ABOUT YOU AND KOBE. YOU HAD A BEEF AND THEY BECAME FRIENDS. HE IS AN INTERESTING ENTREPRENEUR. HE DID A LOT WITH TECH INVESTING. HE SAID HE WAS TALKING ABOUT YOUR WORK ETHIC AND BEST WELL. HE SAID IF THE WORK ETHIC HAD BEEN HIGHER IT COULD’VE BEEN EVEN BETTER. WE COULD’VE WON EVEN MORE RINGS. THAT IS INTERESTING IF YOU APPLY IT TO BUSINESS. >>MAKE OF WHAT? >>HIS COMMENTS ON YOUR WORK ETHIC? >>WITH USING THAT TO ME OR TO ALL THE STATUES I HAVE IN FRONT OF THE STABLES CENTER? BECAUSE HE WASN’T TALKING TO ME. NEVER. MY WORK ETHIC SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. GOOD THING ABOUT ME IS THAT I DID IT MY WAY. MY WAY HAS BEEN VERY EFFECTIVE ON AND OFF THE COURT. YOU KNOW? PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY RELEVANT SOMEHOW. BUT WE ARE HERE TALKING ABOUT POSITIVE STUFF GO GETTING PEOPLE JOBS. HELPING GETTING PEOPLE EXTRA INCOME. I DON’T BUY INTO ANY OF THAT. >>SO — THREE FINALS, MVPS, 4 RINGS. NOT BAD FOR A GUY WHO DIDN’T WORK OUT. >>ARE YOU GOING TO COMPARE YOUR BEST PORTFOLIO TO KOBE’S? >>YOU KNOW WHAT? I AM NOT FROM THIS PLANET. I DON’T PETE WITH MAN. I JUST TRY TO DO THE RIGHT THING. MAKE PEOPLE SMILE. THE DAY AFTER I RETIRE, MY MOTHER GRABBED MY SHIRT AND SAID SOME, YOU HAVE DONE EVERYTHING I HAVE ASKED YOU TO DO. BUT WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO NOW TO MAKE OTHER PEOPLE HAPPY? THAT IS WHAT I THINK YOU SHOULD FOCUS ON. THAT IS WHAT I AM FOCUSED ON. MAKING OF THE PEOPLE SMILE AND MAKING OTHER PEOPLE HAPPY. JUST DOING POSITIVE STUFF. >>LAKERS OR CLIPPERS THIS YEAR? >>NEITHER. THE SACRAMENTO KINGS. >>I AM PART OWNER OF THE SACRAMENTO KINGS. >>[ LAUGHTER ] >>SMART. >>NO LAKERS, NO CLIPPERS, NO NEXT. >>>WHAT IS GOING TO GET THE KINGS THE EDGE? >>FOX IS FABULOUS. THEY ARE DOING A WONDERFUL JOB OF BUILDING THE TEAM. BUILDING A COACH. WE HAVE

  1. The sports media guys used to say Shaq was dumb, but he is now more educated, more accomplished in the media, and is a better business man than all of them.

  2. FT% tells if you practice or not. Whenever you practic3 every player is taught to shoot ft when you tired, amd all through practice…he never practiced, his weight says it too…

  3. It took them 8 minutes to get up the courage and they got what they wanted VENOM!"People have to stay relevant somehow"

  4. i like your work, i like your work, and this dude? lol He tried to tie it in the conversation too smh should be fired… shaq said something to his boss.

  5. The guy asked him if he had Kobe's work ethic. So no Kobe never said he was lazy he just said compared to himself he was lazy and honestly every one in the NBA is lazy then

  6. I really love Shaquille O'Neal. He rich but he gets it. He is a true definition of a venture capitalist. I will be using this app to find extra work. Shaq has the same sensibilities wirh investing like Warren Buffet. That is why he is who he is. An amazing man IMO

  7. This white guy should be fired. Make it happen, Shaq. Typical white guy who tries to be relevant on black people success.

  8. Damn Shaq & Kobe at it again both are competiting as investors lol.
    Why does this feel like a script to a movie?

  9. It's crazy because rich people dont think if that because there so buisy in there luxury life they forget and dont care about what is really is to not live in the dream, I would give my life for one day to trade places and that dosent mean anything to em just wonder what goes thru there heads just by hearing that it wont mean nothing I just dont know how ?

  10. Wasn't Papa John the person who made some racists comments some time ago and then make a public apology 🤔🙄. I hope you have a voice in the decision making process as a black man

  11. Isn't this that same Shaquille O'Neil who dressed up in women's clothing at some point and then later went in drag again ?

  12. Its sad how false information is what drove this thing for them both. For those who never watched kobe never said " shaq doesnt work hard. " they compared compared work ethic and kobe was a 1000 times more dedicated then shaq. Shaq knows this but he bit into it because what was his nickname outside the nba oh thats right " big chief marketer " sound familar? Thats because they both said it there entire feud was to draw media attention and thats what it did every media platform is using that right now to draw views/clicks. Shaq knows exactly what kobe meant by it when he said what he said. Love how everyone falls into that, thats exactly why kobe tweeted and shaq deflected it by making fun of dwight howard. Its pure marketing. Kobe got paid like a million dollars to do that interview
    In fact all these media outlets should be kissing there feet gives them something to get paid with. Because millions of people will click there articles or watch there tv shows now

  13. Youll never get shaq to answer stupid surprise questions like that!!! Ever since shaq has a good comeback answer!!!

  14. Shaq has wayyy better character then Koby!! He has a BIG ❤️ HEART I love him 🖕Koby Bryant He has. not won a ring since playing with Shaq

  15. Shaq even admits here he didn’t work out. Shannon Sharpe said Shaq can bench 400lbs.

    I think Kobe is stating the obvious – what would this guy had been like if he did workout and get his diet right? Yikes

  16. Everybody have different body type and everybody have their style. Some people will get injured if working out too much and some will not. Its unfair to compare a heavy big size person workout to an average one. Injuries happen. The same Shaq Kobe was complaining about, won a championship after leaving the lakers.

  17. I could understand why Shaq was mad. he probably didnt see the full interview and just heard Kobe said you're lazy. The 12 rings is a sarcastic joke Kobe threw in just saying they would have always won. Because Shaq was already dominant. But if he practiced the way Kobe did he would be better than Jordan. simple as that. More like a compliment to Shaq not a diss lol.

  18. Kobe still a d-head and you knoooow they not really friends. Not after what Kobe did and he still chirpin..refer to the Childs 2 piece.

  19. Shaq talking about taking time and due diligence bringing him money and more success….Maybe Kobe had a point about if you had his work ethic lol

  20. I don’t think it was the right moment to ask that ‘Kobe question’ honestly…but I also think shaq is not very happy about what Kobe said, though he never said anything bad about shaq.

  21. I downloaded the app just on this interview! Out of bounds yahoo finance for the Kobe questions… What does business have to do with the Kobe question. Awww i see Shaq smashed his finger so that was his get back question…silly mortals!

  22. Contradicted himself saying he wants to help people make money… then when she asked how this would work for normal people he basically said it works for me, I'm not going to advise anyone but it works for me. SMDH

  23. So salty hhahahahahah. YOU THOUGHT YOU WAS KOBE? You aint KOBE, they aint LOVE U LIKE THAT. U had 3 better series than kobe vs trash east teams. U need wad and kobe to win, u NEED 2 MJS TO WIN? Hahahahahaha u fuckin bitch. Stfu. Nigga says finals mvps like Kobe aint win with GASOL and Odom hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha NIGGA WHOOOOO??????

  24. Just like the idiot to bring up the most irrelevant question on the planet, trying to throw shade….smh, some kids need a proper spanking, this is not a sports show, it's Yahoo finance IDIOT

  25. Tired of people not quoting Kobe wrong. He didn’t say he didn’t have work ethic. The question in the interview was if Shaq had Kobe’s work ethic what would had happened. Kobe’s work ethic is legendary in basketball. That’s why the question was asked.

  26. for .a guy who didnt work out- exactly what Kobe was talking about. Not what you accomplished, but what you could of accomplished more.

  27. So Shaq is basically another corporate scumbag who likes to own businesses, (fast food) that pay workers the lowest possible wage. Gig work is a way for corps to avoid even paying the basic worker protections of disability and unemployment insurance not to mention avoiding the big nut which is social security.

  28. Gig economy is modern day slavery. You can try to trick people using smooth language but it exploiting of the masses for the gain of the company. Look no further than uber and Lyft

  29. She started off with disrespect,she obviously didn’t know shaq business resume, all them seemed a tad disrespectful, shaq worth half a billion off business investments give that man his respect

  30. Can't trust anything Shaq says. First he says 4:02 regarding his investments then he says 6:19 Talks out of both sides of his mouth does this one. Truth is he was lazy and ate far to many Papa John pizzas.

  31. when I was watching SHAQTIN A FOOL, Shaq made people laugh by making some people look stupid. And now as I see Shaq is salty about this media circus about KOBE BRYANT answering if he has KOBE"S WORK ETHICS. Kobe never said that he is lazy, Kobe just answer the question if he has his work ethics.
    Man, Shaq is the most insensitive sensitive personality I ever know

  32. Shaq, not the Kings.
    Now I have to low key like them.
    Look at getting Tatum from Boston.
    And a center. I want to see the kings in the playoffs.
    Steady sounds like something developed for the people, keep doing you, you make a difference in peoples lives without a basketball.
    Respect due.

  33. To be honest, I'm the biggest Kobe fan. But I think he was wrong for calling out Shaq. Talking about someone's work eithic in any pro sport is one of the worst things you can say about someone. Kobe is doing great in his business life and everything else. Why bring negativity towards a previous teammate now? Kobe says "it's all love" between him and Shaq. Obviously, after seeing this, Shaq was offended. Seems like Kobe wants attention that he may miss from his playing days.

  34. Why is Shaq dropping cliche response when he was asked about why he was wanted to invest on this app ? He goes like I wanted to help people out and impact people.
    That’s response is academic cliche that I have heard hundred of times. Next time, I humbly request Shaq to be genuine and authentic in his response. Thanks

  35. People don’t get it..why shaq mad, why shaq being so sensitive. He was there to do a interview about business and this clown asked him a question that had nothing to do with business. Shaq took it personally and answers with a sarcastic answer. Who wouldn’t do that.?!🤷🏽‍♂️

  36. Next thing shaq says to Kobe: "Next time you want to be funny just STFU….then i have to answer these stupid questions even during busines interview you moron"

  37. Shaq is a bit sensitive when it comes to someone criticizing him always has been. He was indeed a dominant player all Kobe said in so many words is if he worked a bit harder he could have been even better. The media always looks to create controversy.

  38. What a gossipy question to ask about Kobe's assessment of
    Shaq! I just don't see how it fits in the context of this interview.

  39. BEST AND CLASSY ANSWER. I AM ALSO NOT MAD AT KOBE FOR HIS OPINION. THIS IS TWO GREAT MEN HAVING A BACK AND FORTH AND ITS GREAT. THIS IS NO LITTLE BOY STUFF.

  40. It was unexpected from koby to say that but his ego and so much into himself attitude made him to do so self promotion on back of others which he doesn't need everybody knows how good a player he is on the basketball floor other than that ZERO as a person
    Self-centered and egostic always tried to copy MJ
