The Networking Never Stops-Cannabis & Hemp Industry

Networking in the Cannabis and Hemp Industry

Where to start…

When working your way into any industry or attempting to climb the “corporate ladder” there are ways to get the competitive edge. Make yourself known as the hardest worker in the room, stay ahead of deadlines, and always put your positive foot forward. We’ve already covered why the hustle is so important in a previous post. After you have the mindset to put in the effort to get noticed, it is time to start shaking hands. The networking never stops.

Expanding your circle and making connections through networking is a key element to success in the cannabis and hemp industry. Truly a booming global industry for the last several decades. The field is finding its own successful techniques for creating industry leaders. In other industry fields one would strive for higher education and promotions as a sign of professional growth. As an industry that once was illegally ran from back alleys and the guy on the corner, knowing the right people has always had its advantages.

Start where you are!

Create Opportunities to Network

Now in legal limelight, shining for the world to see – Cannabis and Hemp brings together professionals from all walks of life. Crossing cultures, ethnicities, and generations; the cannabis and hemp industry is still about who you know. No matter where you are in the industry there are positions both ahead and behind, each with their own integral function. It just depends on where you are going, what is your goal? Then formulate a plan to introduce yourself to the game changers.

Cannabis and Hemp are unique; these industries offer abundant opportunities to rise up without obtaining a Master’s Degree (or any degree for that matter) and without the traditional ladder climb. Sure those things are still viable efforts in the individual success path, however in Cannabis and Hemp networking is key. Cannabis and hemp are so economically diverse, pathways to the top can be self forged with the right connections and the right presence.

Show up 100% of the time!

Be Your Best You (for the plant) -The Networking Never Stops

Because these industries are built on passion for the plant rather than passion for profits, relationship based connections can be more priceless than a contract from a million dollar company representative. Ninety percent of today’s successful cannabis and hemp companies were started as local grassroots (pun intended) operations. Their intense dedication to #freetheplant lead them to make the right connections and collaborations to further professional growth limits.

So go to industry events; show up for the mixer, the forum and the after party! The networking never stops in industries that are as fast paced as cannabis and hemp. Don’t be afraid to walk up to strangers at these events and just introduce yourself. Shake hands with the whole room, swap business cards like they’re going out of style (they kinda are); and connect on social media, email and LinkedIn. Not only will you make some amazing connections with opportunities, you might even find a few good friends. What better way to celebrate your rise up than with those who helped you get there!

Successful connections bring opportunities!
