The more you know, the more you grow.
Alright, so that statement may be a tad cliche….
There’s a lot of truth to it as well.
Knowledge is power, especially in the cannabis industry.
We’re dealing with decades of misinformation, propaganda, and deception. Not to mention the financial and legal hurdles.
Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been operating for years, we all can benefit from learning from each other’s experiences.
Which is why we’ve rounded up inspiring cannabiz career advice from 10 highly successful cannawomen!
From putting yourself out there to pursuing your highest calling, here are ten nuggets of cannabiz wisdom that will change your business for the better.
#1 Cannabis is calling you for a reason
“Cannabis is calling you for a reason. Trust your intuition. Trust in your abilities. Trust you are needed, you are important, and you are worthy. What you can offer, no one else can. Trust your path. Trust. Trust. Trust.”
#4 Don’t Be Afraid to Put Yourself Out There
“Don't be afraid to put yourself out there. There are so many negative stigmas towards people who consume cannabis that I was afraid myself as to what people would think about my business. I had to let that go and stay true to who I am and what I believe in......and was it worth it? 100%!!!!!”
#6 Join a network!
“Join a network! This is a young and dynamic industry that is always growing and changing. It’s also a very open one, filled with more women entrepreneurs than any other new industry. It’s imperative to have a network to stay informed and connected to the changing landscape. Women really have an opportunity to help each other forge an unprecedented path to leadership and female-ownership of cannabis-related businesses. There is no glass ceiling in cannabis. I hope we can work together to keep it that way!”
#8 It’s all about your why
“It’s all about your why. What you truly believe in, who you want to help, and how you intend on doing so. And even when it doesn’t work, you will at least have the consolation that you stayed true to who you are and had the courage to put yourself out there.”
#9 create from the heart
“Stay true to yourself and create from the heart, that is where the magic is. Narrow in on what aspect of the plant you want to offer and really sink into it. For encouragement along the way listen to your favorite empowering music! For me, it’s hip-hop!”
#10 if you believe in the power of YOU, everything else will align
“The cannabis industry is not easy. There will be haters, naysayers, doubters, etc. but the best thing you can do is keep your faith and always put God first. Ignore the negativity. Even when you feel down & out, if you believe in the power of YOU, everything else will align.”
