consumption chronicles: ThE Sustainable entrepreneur
There’s an art to success. Sustaining success is an even more refined talent. A core theme that is important to master is making smart financial decisions. A lack of monetary resources is often identified as a barrier to taking one’s life or business to the next level; however, it’s not always as clear where one can trim the fat off their expenses in order to invest in other areas that will allow for needed development and growth. Through our new Consumption Chronicles Series, The Sustainable Entrepreneur, we share stories, tips, and other resources for the entrepreneur living in a changing + increasingly expensive world.
The Sustainable Entrepreneur: Bike Shares + Transportation Accessibility
The Consumption Chronicles Docu-series magnifies the effort to achieve racial and social justice in the U.S. through the sustainable development of the adult-use cannabis industry, hemp, and drug policy reform. The docu-series not only changes the way people think and feel about cannabis, it focuses on being a dependable, multi-sector source for information that gets to the root cause of inequity in America; and provides solutions through the emerging cannabis industry.
Show people how their future generations will be positively impacted. That’s how you mobilize.
ALLY THEATER :
Are you a fraud, or nah? This applies to EVERY industry. Look at the companies you support. Do they support you, your community, anyone other than the 1%? Or are the people behind the steering wheel only chanting “Social Justice!” “Diversity!” and “Inclusion!” because it’s convenient? What does their board of directors look like? Is their employee base representative of their customer base? As a consumer, these are the questions it is imperative you make a priority. Companies, time to take a look in the mirror and ask yourself the tough questions and take action. Or you can do nothing. The accountability is on both parties. Many of us have a CHOICE when it comes to where & how we want to buy food, clothes, and WEED. More importantly, MANY OF US DON’T. As legalization progresses, we will have more choices than ever. The next 10 years is going to be a wild wave to ride before the adult-use cannabis industry settles. As a company, set yourself up for success by investing in your people and processes, in addition to producing a top notch product or service. As a consumer, you hold the power to demand things be done differently. Here and NOW. Your voice, actions, and dollars MATTER. Never forget that. Cannabis. Banking. Technology. Fashion. Food. Government. Real Estate. Law. Medicine. Fitness. No industry or sector is off limits. Be a real ally. Make real change.
