Newbie saying "Hello" from Oregon - it's got to be 4:20 somewhere
My 80-year old step-dad introduced me to Steemit. He wanted to use it so I jumped on having no clue as to what I was embarking on. However, once I'm done making this post. I will go teach him how to make his first post. I am excited to be a part of this platform.
I'm 43yo. and Bay Area born in California. I was raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains. My mom was the executive accountant for Apple when I was a child so I spent many nights sleeping on the couches in Cupertino, CA.
I have an amazing 23-year old son who works for Oculus. If you have not tried VR gaming I truly suggest it. As an aging lady, I'm so excited about 20 years from now sitting in my lazy boy recliner taking a trip to India or Egypt without the cost of hotels and airfare. Of course, I'd rather visit in person but you get the point. You can go underwater or into space. It's incredible.
Regarding myself...I've had a long 15-year career in medical and recreational cannabis. I had multiple successful medical edible companies in California and Oregon. With all the laws changing I didn't make it over the hump some years back. So I went on to build others dreams. I have built farms with greenhouses full of cannabis, opened many medical and recreational retail cannabis stores in Oregon.
Currently, I'm floating in the universe. I have been working on a faction novel somewhat biographical of my life with some flair of course. In addition, I have been either deciding to get a job. Who wants to do that? So I set out to raise capital to create my own extraction lab or vertically integrated cannabis company in California. I have met many investors and wrote all my business plans and created the pitch decks to match. However, every VC or wannabe investor has been a weirdo. So with that being said, I may get a job. lol. Or stick to my entrepreneur blood type and create something else. We shall see!
I love to stay healthy as that is what led me down the path to cannabis was my health failing while I was in Nursing school. Oh totally forgot. I'm in school finishing my BS in Business Management. I enrolled in a python certificate course as well.
I'm capable of anything. So are you!
