As a California native, Jake Hendrickson grew up with the American spirit of being free and creating your own pathway. He saw the potential for growing cannabis as a reputable business early on. He started growing cannabis without knowing much, but tested his limits and put himself at the forefront of the industry from the start.
“I was always testing and trying out new things or new methods of this and that. Trying to find a new way to grow and market this plant and staying ahead of the competition,” shares Jake.
As you can see, Jake has taken the idea for these businesses and taken them farther than anyone would have thought. A key part of achieving this has been Jake’s positive mindset. “Mindset is everything, it can make you or break you, it’s just that easy.
Every business will have hiccups or problems and the wrong mindset can sink you or make you work harder,” says Jake.
While it takes long hours of blood, sweat, and tears, you always need to be prepared for the unforeseeable in order to be successful in business. There are many people out there trying to make it in the business world, however, you need to be willing to make the necessary sacrifices.
“If you want a cush job and an easy life and a steady paycheck, starting your own business isn’t for you. If you like adventure, being your own boss and a pay ceiling as high as the sky coupled with risk you might be in the right place,” says Jake.
