Learn From The Smartest Cannabis Entrepreneurs In The Industry
We live in a society nowadays that doesn’t seem to root for the little guy. Certain people in the media and the younger generation seem to decry the words entrepreneur and capitalist. These words “entrepreneur” and “capitalist” shouldn’t be looked at in a derisive way.
These words or better put virtues should be embraced and lauded as a positive force towards the march of mankind. Working for one’s self-interest has allowed mankind to unite on a large scale and cooperate beyond national boundaries. They often say greed and selfishness are virtues one shouldn’t emulate and should focus on the collective. It’s because of this so-called “selfishness” that has allowed mankind to propel itself forward and richly reward those who take risks.
As a fledgling cannabis entrepreneur, I figured the best way to learn is to ask the hard questions to people that trying to disrupt the industry. These entrepreneurs include Pranav Sood from Trellis Software whose trying to shake up the seed to software market. Eric Robichaud and Vincent Bitetti from Green Goddess Supply whose marketing changing grow box aka “The Amoire” is looking to disrupt the home grow market by allowing amateur and novice growers, to grow there own marijuana. Of course, I can’t forget Mistress Matisse; a dominatrix turned entrepreneur that claims women can have better and longer lasting orgasms using her revolutionary product, VELVET SWING™.
As a lifelong entrepreneur I can relate to the struggle it takes getting a startup off the ground but with perseverance and having the right mindset you’ll achieve and hopefully exceed your goals of being successful in the industry.
Pranav Sood is the founder and CEO of Trellis. Trellis is enterprise tracking software for the cannabis industry. The company has origins in Toronto but was recently accepted into and subsequently funded by the Gateway Accelerator program in Oakland, California.
I had the pleasure of talking to Bess Byers aka Cannabess a few days ago. Bess is a Seattle based photographer and Instagram sensation with over 80,000+ followers. Bess recently launched her own photography business at the beginning of 2018. Bess and I talked about everything from getting a job in the cannabis industry, photography to government regulation in the business.
This interview was conducted with Mistress Matisse of VELVET SWING™. Matisse is a dominatrix turned cannabis entrepreneur. Matisse has an interesting background from sex worker – dominatrix to an entrepreneur that’s aiming to shake up the adult toy industry with her new revolutionary product. Do you think she’ll succeed?
I came in contact with Stacey Swimme via her Instagram account. I was intrigued by the product she was promoting. A topical lubricant that can help women have better and longer lasting orgasms. Going beyond that I wanted to know more about Stacey. Nothing is off limits during the interview. This is a must-read.
