Some people I talk who know I work in the cannabis industry view this as time spent partying and staying out all night long. They formed their reality based on why they want to get involved. I simply explain that if they want to join those of us who will make a major impact on society they will need to reconsider their dream. Working and being successful in the cannabis profession requires passion, dedication and immunity to criticism. For us, working with cannabis cultivators is the best decision we ever could have made.
The most successful cannabis entrepreneurs wake up daily with a clear purpose. Some want to increase the science of cultivation while others are advocates for cannabis rights and education. The mindset of cannabis entrepreneurs matters. A 2018 study revealed 74 percent of working cannabis professionals were either satisfied or very satisfied with their work. That’s 20 percent more than the national average! A report released in 2020 showed that only 54 percent of employees across all industries are satisfied with their job. In the grips of the pandemic stress and anxiety are at an all-time high. The cannabis industry values and prioritizes both mental and physical health which by its nature creates a healthier working environment than most other professions.
There are significant obstacles facing cannabis entrepreneurs. Some of those barriers include discrimination, exclusionary banking, inconsistent and unpredictable legislation not to mention the saturation of competitive brands and ventures in the market. No matter the obstacles, I continue to believe that being involved and working in cannabis has been the most personally, professionally, and financially rewarding experience of my lifetime. Along with those I work with, we continue to navigate and clear the barriers while carving out solution based results of our own. We know that as long as we keep the people we serve as our top priority we’ll be rewarded with a fun and profitable career that will continue to fulfill our purpose.
