Given my astute ability at sniffing out BS, people often reach out to me asking me for recommendations on which companies to invest in. I decided to call upon my favorite, and most trusted wealth advisor, Colby Mcfadden of Quiver Financial and Green Flower Media, to make a series about investing in the cannabis industry to better educate myself, and the masses alike. Let me know what you think!

List of Topics/subjects discussed

  • Private vs Public
  • Why do private companies go public?
  • What kind of Investor do you want to be?
  • Investment stages - where do you fit in?
  • Beware of the bankers telling private companies to go public - they have ulterior motives!
  • What are some of the ancillary sectors adjacent to the cannabis industry looking for investment?
  • Why you need to create a due diligence team to avoid the snakes and vipers in the private industry

3 Lessons Learned

  • Only invest in private deals where you can AFFORD the risk. If you’re not an accredited investor, you better do your homework!
  • If you’re going to invest your hard-earned money into a venture, spend the money on someone with expertise to vet it.
  • Always remember “As is the inside, so is the outside”
