Hi. I’m Rick and I’m a cannabis entrepreneur.

::: Hi Rick!!

Yep. That’s pretty much how it felt when I dove deep into this industry first as a mentor-advisor, then as a co-founder for a CBD startup. From there it was a distribution company and now we are smack dab in the middle of a real deal cannabis accelerator program that we founded called Green Seed.

Oh and that pretty lady? Yeah. That’s Lisa and she’s my better half of over 18 years now and she’s pretty much on this ride with me too. (I’m the kite, she’s the string…capice?)

So this is me. Well. Us. The original hustle couple from Texas (by way of SoCal) that only took like 2 decades’ish or so to perfect our entrepreneurial craft before we felt ready to dive into cannabis. So what makes this site…us…our “craft” so kick ass?

Well. We like to say that we start with our values. Yep. Our very own personal core values of::

Faith…Family…Freedom…Fitness

Beyond that is our commitment to total transparency in everything we do, always zigging when the herd zags and of course the fact that we’ve been exceptionally good at starting and running businesses and had some really rocking successes as entrepreneurs in and out of the cannabis world. (And psssttt::: we’ve had some epic failures that would make you cry like a baby)…

But in the end what we’re really about is trust. You see you won’t find any slick messages or shiny, cool new thingy’s or cannabis biz hacks.

Nah.

You’ll find me and Lisa (mostly me if I’m totally honest), all our wonderful amazement with what being cannabis entrepreneurs is all about, we’ll admit when we don’t know something but do our damndest to get the answers for our clients ASAP.

Because trust is earned through actions not talk.

However smart or nutty or dumb this all has sounded the fact is the fact.

This. Is. Us.

And we’re here to win.

I’m Rick. And I’m the cannabiz growth expert…at your service.

About

This is the part where I share some stuff about me and about my better half Lisa and all the cool things we’ve done but more importantly why you should listen to us and further get to know, like and trust us.

So I aim to not disappoint.

** This is us at a couples retreat in Quebec, Canada. Eighteen years together and we’re not perfect…but we work to be as good as we can be. That mantra is not just for life and love but applies pretty darn well to business too.

(Keep scrolling…)

** We served in the Army. I say “we” because a military spouse also serves. Lisa was and is our rock while I was activated as an Army nurse for nearly two years after 911.

(Keep scrolling…)

** I did an Ironman. But hey, it’s not about DOING the Ironman it’s about having the support, the drive and the grit to accomplish something that at one time was only a dream. Kinda like what we do as entrepreneurs no?

(Keep scrolling…)

** We raised three wonderful kids. Man. That should be worth a gold medal in and of itself. But look, it’s about your (YOUR) why. The reason you get up and do the things you do. For me…well…for US…we’ve got three of them.

(Keep scrolling…)

** We’re both RN’s…yep. Over 50 years of combined healthcare experience and we take it seriously. While we have applied our talents as healthcare pros and entrepreneurs on a bigger mission…make no mistake we are here to definitely provide a NEW type of wellness.

(Keep scrolling…)

** And now here’s just good ole plain serious stuff:::

Chasing The Sun

Hey there my friends. I’m a believer in stories. By that I mean stories and how they relate to business…maybe YOUR business…and one of my fav ones is about chasing the sunset. You see as entrepreneurs we often glorify the grind, we’re always “hustling” and sleep is for when you’re dead. Right? Don’t get me wrong, …
