LIP010 Kirsten Velasco on Connection and Engagement Success
Sep 8 15
Today’s guest is the amazing Kirsten Velasco and she is a patient advocate and educator for the medical cannabis community. It is her goal to overcome the negative stigma and propaganda associated, with cannabis so eventually all communities will accept cannabis as a therapeutic, natural botanical plant that can be used for anything from a nutritional supplement all the way to a highly effective medicine that is better than the traditional pharmaceuticals. Here are some highlights from today’s show:
- She is a firm believer that when you are doing something you love, you are completely and utterly devoted to it. Your mind lists a continuous number of things you can do to improve your situation. Having been self-employed, Kirsten says you need to be self-motivated. There’s no one to tell you that you have to get things done and done at a certain time. Being an entrepreneur means your drive is something that comes from within.
- Entrepreneurs, according to Kirsten, have the distinct ability to endure failure when it comes to them. As adults, we usually have an entitlement to an outcome. She likens it to being in college, that even though college students doesn’t have guarantees, they still get up and go to school, spend their money and time going after this unknown goal.
