RIP Dana

By | News

When I search my friend’s name all I see is news articles about his death. Instagram is full of love from friends and fam but I want to make sure the world knows what he accomplished professionally too. I know that was super important to him. I built out this page on the LTRMN site and this post is linking to it to tell Google it’s a good one. We miss you like crazy Dana Ryssdal.

I’m doing TikTok

By | News

In the last couple years I’ve come to appreciate the power of publishing my thoughts on the internet in the form of works, primarily on Twitter and a little on LinkedIn. Content, they call it.

It’s still a bit unnerving but getting more natural everyday.

TikTok, video, and moreso relentless publishing of short form video is a much more daunting task but after watching what can happen on TikTok by simply showing up and working at it: I’ve decided to give it a go.

I’ll be talking about products and brands every day, at least once a day, on TikTok. My wife refuses to follow me.

I started a cannabis newsletter

By | News

All that ranting and raving on LinkedIn finally added up to something: A newsletter called Free Smoke. Aptly subheaded “cannabis and bullshit”, Free Smoke is a twice monthly rambling on a variety of not-boring topics centered around cannabis. Free Smoke is longform, ish, and you can subscribe here for past issues and to get new ones in your inbox.

Technology: The Key to Growing the Cannabis Industry

Technology is the backbone of the legal cannabis industry, and it is evolving and adapting at an exponential pace – even during the global pandemic. The success of the cannabis industry is entirely dependent on technology being a conduit between businesses and consumers and as such, canna-tech is continuing to expand the limits of end-to-end solutions in a highly regulated space. Solutions must deep dive into the nuances of the cannabis plant and consumer behavior while navigating compliance and developing real-time inventory and menu integration for businesses managing thousands of items. The unique demands and needs of technology in the cannabis industry serve as a case study for other emerging sectors and ultimately begs the question, “what’s next?” in cannabis and beyond.

My Thread Featured on Inc Mag

By | Press

Jessican Stillman at Inc featured my thread about reading biographies instead of business and personal development books, and added a primer on each one.

Jessica writes:

“The place to turn, according to one entrepreneur, is biographies. On Twitter recently, founder and CTO Colin Landforce confessed that he’s traded in general advice for deeper dives into the lives of past innovators. “I stopped reading business books a while ago. I’m reading history and biographies instead,” he tweeted.

Looking for titles to add to his to-read queue, Landforce asked his 20,000-plus followers to suggest great biographies and memoirs. More than 100 ideas poured in. Landforce helpfully sorted through the suggestions to weed out repetitions and self-promoters, coming up with a final tally of 43 recommendations. The full list is here or, to get you started, here are a handful of the most promising.”

James’ launches NanoFlips Course

By | Uncategorized

I’ve been playing in web – eComm, content, and beyond – for years now, and I’m very savvy in the space. A while ago when I listed to my friend James on The Fort podcast talking about digital real estate, a switch flipped for me.

I had a chance to go through James’ Nano Flips course before he launched and actually used it to buy a site (that shall go unmentioned for now) this summer. It’s an A+ playbook and I got a change to give him a testimonial for it.

Digital Real Estate! Nano Flips! Let’s go!
