I started my entrepreneurial journey when I was 15 after my mother was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. I mainly lived with my mother, we were in a significantly compromised position. I know I had to make changes in my life and to become independent, personally and financially. So, I began making businesses, many small ones, but businesses that allowed me to take care of myself. As I got older I wanted bigger businesses that could take care of my whole family and not just myself. When I entered my freshman year of college I started to study opportunities within Maine that I could take advantage of. That’s when I discovered the emerging hemp industry. I took every opportunity in college to learn more about hemp and what hemp used to represent in America, I became hooked. It took me 2 years to gain the knowledge and confidence to take the leap of faith in entering the hemp industry, where I would be a trailblazer. I entered another compromised position, where I would need to figure things out myself and potentially fail, yet I ignored the risks to achieve my goal of financially providing for my family. Following my commitment to enter the market and create hemp products ( I was specifically interested in hemp fuel/heating) I found myself a mentor who showed me the small steps to take to reach my goals. From there it has been a journey of continuous small steps that has now led me to where I am now. Today, we are posting consistent monthly revenue and I plan to carry this out until I provide for myself, my family, and this industry that I care deeply about.
