Cannabis Investing Tips for Non-Millionaires

Want to invest in the cannabis industry but barely have enough to buy your own weed? Cody Sanchez of Cresco Capital Partners has suggestions. May 23, 2019 15+ min read Cannabis stocks are all the rage. IPOs valued at billions of dollars are popping up on Wall Street and the Canadian Stock Exchange, and private equity funds are investing multiple millions in cannabis companies. If you’re watching all this from the sidelines, wondering if you’re missing out on a golden opportunity but not sure what to do about it, you’re not alone. Many potential investors believe they don’t have the cash to get in the game, and in some instances they’re correct. Due to regulations, many funds are not even permitted to accept investments for less than $200,000. On this week’s Green Entrepreneur podcast, we talk to Codie Sanchez, a partner at Cresco Capital Partners, about how to invest in […]

Why People Really Hate Us Online

Pat Flynn: Stop talking, because nobody cares. You are a complete idiot— Speaker 2: You are a complete idiot from head to toe. Speaker 3: Go do something that actually matters. Speaker 4: Why were you even born? Pat: . . . I hate you. Speaker 2: I hate you. Pat: These are some powerful words that I’ve read online about myself. Now, nobody has ever said any of these things to me in person, but it doesn’t really matter because when I read these things online, it hurts. I don’t know if you’ve ever been targeted for hate online. Whether it’s a comment on a YouTube video, or your blog, or a reply on social media, or something that you read in a forum somewhere, it doesn’t matter. It never feels good no matter how much people tell you that those are things you should just ignore. I’ve been […]

Glen Allsop: I am so happy you asked me that. So let’s just say, if a no-name person, no one you’ve ever met, no one you’ve ever contact with, somehow got to get in front of you, if it was a Twitter DM or an email, and they said, “Hey Pat!

Your Business Will Never Let You Focus on One Thing (FS319)

Are you struggling with shame because your Instagram posts don’t get enough likes, or maybe you feel confident because you get tons all the time? Social media and the Internet shape our modern-day business conditions where we have all these opportunities for independent creativity that could lead to an audience and a sellable product or service. There’s still a lot to learn though! Business is a lot like dating. It develops over time, hopefully to a point where your audience know, like and trust you enough to invest money in the solution you offer. But what happens when you do that and then you have another idea? Many entrepreneurs are confronted with this question sooner or later: do I want to do this, or would I rather do something else? Can I focus on both? It would be very wise to prepare yourself for this process of expanding, adding to […]

How to Build a YouTube Brand that Makes an Impact with Tim Schmoyer

Pat Flynn: By the year 2020, Google says, which is a little bit scary—that’s next year—they say that ninety percent of all content consumption will be through video. That’s a pretty significant percentage. And they have access to data that may actually show that they are right. Obviously, they own YouTube and now Linkedin is on the video train, Facebook, Facebook Watch, Instagram video, IGTV . . . Video is here to stay and whether you believe the ninety percent number is actually going to happen, we can all agree likely that a large amount of the percentage is going to be video consumption. So it’s really important that we understand how to create videos, and not just videos that are often one-off answers to certain questions and things like that, but videos that can actually gain a following, build a community, help us in our business. And today I’m […]

The Miracle Equation and How to Help You Achieve Your Biggest Goals

Hal Elrod: He said, “Hal, you don’t have that kind of cancer. You don’t have a slow growing tumor.” He goes, “You were healthy last week. You’re on the verge of death right now, and you’ve got days to live if we don’t do chemo.” I thought that was a scare tactic. I’m like, “You know, let me sleep on it.” I Googled it and basically found this is real, most people die from this cancer because they go and get misdiagnosed with pneumonia, which is what I was diagnosed with initially. Then before they figure out what’s actually wrong, the person’s dead. And so I started chemo . . . Pat Flynn: You’re listening to Hal Elrod, a near and dear friend of mine who has gone through, now, a second near-death experience. The first time he was on the show, he talked about his book The Miracle Morning, […]

Anti-Busy. Pro-Purpose. Talking Work-Life Balance with Chalene Johnson

Chalene Johnson: We’re so used to being hyperstimulated and go, go, go, go, go, go, go, I’ll say, admittedly, mainly for me because I had such an addiction to work as my default. We had lots of things in . . . Pat Flynn: You’re listening to Chalene Johnson, an amazing friend and mentor of mine and today we’re going to be discussing work-life balance. I don’t know if you’re like me or like Chalene, but oftentimes we default to just continuing to stay busy and how do we know what we should stay busy on when we want to say no to things. What do we prioritize, how do we manage this versus our family, how do we blend them together nicely? I’ve always admired Chalene and how she’s been able to seemingly have everything together and we find out in this episode that it wasn’t always that way. […]

Passive Income & Building A “Perennial” Business (FS313)

As a business owner and soon-to-be mother of two, I’d love to share what it’s been like to design a passive income business that has supported my family and family life over the past 10 years. I still remember the week before I got married… I was working hard on a client project, and suddenly I had to put in a ton of overtime to get it launched when timelines changed and a contractor backed out. It was stressful, and I vowed that I’d find a way to make my business support my life, not the other way around. Fast forward a few years later… My husband joined the business. Now all of our income was dependent on the business. We decided to start our family, phased out all client-facing work and moved to digital products entirely. There was a slight dip in income that year, but we re-calibrated. Our […]

Why Staying Small Is the Next Big Thing with Paul Jarvis

Paul Jarvis: For me, it’s always, I want a business that supports my life, not a life that supports my business. So I don’t want to Elon Musk things and work eighty hours a week and sleep on a couch in my office. I want to work thirty-ish hours a week and enjoy the rest of my time. As long as I make enough money to cover that, put money into savings and all of that, I feel good. I don’t need to . . . Working awards ten times more than that wouldn’t serve me, wouldn’t serve my life in any way. I don’t think it would serve my customers, even. Pat Flynn: I recently read a really interesting book, it was called Company of One, Why Staying Small Is the Next Big Thing for Business. When I was initially going to read it, I was thinking about the […]

SEO Simplified with Tim from Ahrefs

Pat Flynn: S-E-O, search engine optimization, simplified. That’s what we’re going to be talking about in this episode today. You know, SEO is a big topic.

Women and Entrepreneurship—with Christy Wright

Christy Wright: So here’s what’s interesting, and this is research-based, this is not just my experience alone. But I think we can all agree men and women, in general, are wired differently. And women, generally, are very, very relational. So we value ourselves by our relationships, as a mother, as a sister, as a daughter, as a friend, as a wife, and so on. Well this is great in business, because we are amazing at customer service. You don’t have to tell a woman how to take care of people, because that’s what she does, that’s who she is. It’s like telling a fish to swim, like this is who we are. However, being wired relationally tends to pose some challenges when relationships are at play in business. For example, pricing . . .
