    Cannabis in the workplace

    Cannabis in the workplace

    Two years after cannabis became legal for adult recreational use, how are organizations navigating its use in the workplace? As leaders and owners of businesses with teams, are we making progress in terms of policies and procedures as it relates to weed in the workplace? 
     
    I’m continuing to rewind the clock and editorializing a number of episodes where I have had entrepreneurs, business owners and other professionals who have background expertise in the cannabis industry that is still very new, and yet growing like weed. (Yes the episode is rife with terrible parent puns!) 
     
    Meet Hilda Gan again, Chief People Officer and owner of People Bright Consulting. She has a specialty in HR for cannabis. 
     
    Hilda says cannabis in the workplace is something that a lot of companies have not yet pondered. At a high level, companies need to think about what they're doing and put in place policies. 
     
    A few of Hilda’s points
     
    Start with research and a policy. Think about the brand of your company, both from the talend and client point of view. Train to educate and remove bias.

    Opening eyes to alternatives

    Opening eyes to alternatives

    In this throwback conversation from the fall of 2018 we bring back lessons from a period of time when c@nnabis was being launched into Canada as a legal, heavily-regulated substance for adult recreational use. 
     
    We summarize my conversation with Dr. Terry Lake, a recurring guest and speaker with our podcast and virtual events - who never fails to offer incredible, logical wisdom.
     
    Dr Lake has rich experience. He started in broadcasting, was a veterinarian, went into lecturing, moved on to be in politics (Minister of Health), and then Corporate Responsibility in an emerging field - ie: Cannabis (Hexo). 
     
    He talks to Colleen about the deep and villainized history of c@nnabis and how Canada’s legalization of it is miles ahead of its time and something that's worth being excited about.
     
    This is a knowledge translation of science and opinion from a truly expert source, on a controversial topic.

    A double-scoop return

    A double-scoop return

    An exciting update on a cash-rich exit for some of our recent guests on the podcast! They are the next generation of the self-made nation - two special guests who are actually my cousins - Jacqueline Marquis and Nicholas Marquis; the former owners of the Almonte Ice Cream Shop. They recently sold their store to the Dewey family.
     
    These bright, enterprising young entrepreneurs bought and managed a local ice cream shop in Almonte, Ontario, while still in high school. 
     
    Jacqueline and Nicolas pooled together their college funds to buy the Almonte Ice Cream Shop and now they have successfully sold it. What a joy!
     
    There's nothing more satisfying than seeing the next generation take the leap, take the risks, and test the waters.
     
    As an investment for them, this venture not only got them a return in the form of an ROI on their money, but also a massive return in experience from a foray into the world of entrepreneurship. 
     
    In this special episode, you can listen to their back story and draw inspiration.

Ebeaton ,

Young Money with Tracey Bisset ,

Great host and show!

Colleen does a great job of covering different perspectives and really filling the gap with this show. There are so many shows for those trying to become millionaires and not as many for those who are. I had a great time interviewing Colleen on Young Money as she shared learnings from this show and all her great guests with my young millionaires in the making. Why not learn the keys to success from the successful? Thanks for bringing this show to us Colleen!
