Swimming in Shark-Infested Waters: Avoiding Entrepreneurial Scams

Are you an entrepreneur looking to get your startup funded? Be careful.

I suppose it’s no surprise that hopeful entrepreneurs are good targets. Too often we’re led to believe that getting investment money is the ultimate victory. Supposedly we’re all going to be successful as soon as some investor says “yes” and we get a big check. And that eagerness to get the money makes us vulnerable to sharks.

While you’re probably as alert as anybody to scams involving fake Nigerian royalty, or free weekends in resorts, your normal anti-scam radar can malfunction when you’re in startup mode looking to get financed. Keep your eyes open and stay safe.

Write a business plan. Don’t buy one.

Bid to legalize marijuana in Arizona has some advocates seeing red

Family propelled JP Holyoak into the weed business: his daughter, Reese, has a rare illness, and Holyoak believes in the power of medical marijuana.

He believes in it so much that his company, Arizona Natural Selections, operates two medical marijuana dispensaries that have served about 9,000 patients since opening last year. Holyoak, a financial adviser, has a big cannabis nursery in a warehouse on an industrial estate near Phoenix Sky Harbor airport. And he believes that recreational marijuana should be legalised – not through any enthusiasm for stoner culture, but because it is sound conservative policy.

Beyond the grass ceiling – the changing relationship between women and weed

Marijuana has finally gone mainstream in the US. The drug, which is now legal in some form in nearly two-dozen states and the District of Columbia, after nearly a century of prohibition, has even had endorsements from CNN and FOX News – both have been touting its health benefits. And, “as legalisation has begun to pick up steam” as one report put it earlier this month, “women are finally coming out of the cannabis closet”, both as users and as ganjapreneurs.

How to Make Yourself Unforgettable

IN PERSON, ONLINE, IN YOUR WORDS AND ACTIONS: HERE'S HOW TO BECOME ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT EVERYONE REMEMBERS.

Deep down, we all just want to be remembered.

In today’s distraction-filled world, it’s easier said than done. The average adult has 360 messages coming at them each day via TV, radio, Internet, newspapers, and magazines, according to a study by Media Dynamics. Less than half are noted and far fewer make enough of an impact to be recalled.

If you’re trying to stand out in the midst of that chaos, you’ve got your work cut out for you.

Here's Where The GOP's 2016 Presidential Contenders Stand On Marijuana Legalization

While the federal government maintains a blanket ban on marijuana, recreational marijuana is already legal in four states and the District of Columbia. In addition, 23 states, as well as D.C., have legalized marijuana for medical purposes.

And with at least 10 more states expected to consider legalization in some form by 2016, the next president of the United States will almost certainly have to reckon with the disparity between state and federal law on marijuana.
