So Many F**k’n Hurdles

Wow being a business owner is challenging!  Add cannabis to the mix and it’s a God Damned Doozey!  Am I right?

I feel like cannabis business owners are the toughest, bad-ass mo fo’s out there.

Everyday there is a new hurdle and sometimes I feel like I’m going to crash right through all of them. 

Oh hay OLCC want to take 6 weeks (or months) to approve my license?  Cool thanks for letting me know.

Oh hay Jeff Sessions, wanna run your mouth again and crack down on medical laws and medical rights? Cool, thanks for letting us know.

So how do we as cannabis business owners keep our shit together in the face of such uncertainty?

By being hyper organized (a big challenge for me), by exercising and meditating and by trusting that we are doing the right thing by staying the course and delivering what the people want….

…CANNABIS!

We are poised for absolute greatness and we have the unique opportunity (and challenge) to actually create an industry.

How many other people can say that about their careers and lives?  Not many.

So with this incredible opportunity comes challenges, pitfalls, uncertainty and exhaustion (see the hurdle picture).

I for one need help and I’m not afraid to say it.  I need help getting my bright ideas into the world in a big way, help outsourcing the shit load of tasks that I have on any given day and help getting organized.

Why am I telling you this?  Because in this day and age of social media and the internet it’s easy to think that everyone around you has it all dialed in.  “Fake-it-til-you-make-it” is a real thing but it’s also bullshit because it makes it so we’re not comfortable having real conversations with each other.

Conversations like, “This is really f**k’n hard and I need help.”

So if you’re feeling overwhelmed, overworked, unorganized and freaked out.  You’re not alone.  I am too.

And now that I’ve gotten this off my chest I am going to spend the rest of the afternoon dialing in my weekly schedule (something I used to do with great success) and dividing my to do’s into time blocks so I can overcome the feeling of being a super powered pinball.

The moon is full, the time is now so let’s do it!

And if you want to have a real conversation about how freakin hard this is, I’m all ears.

Hit me up in the Uplift Canna Fam FB Group.

One love!
