I love stories like Koby Conrad who is hustling and growing his hemp business on Facebook (uh, it’s growing like a weed?). There are so many good, smart little businesses grinding it out and supporting jobs. I wish more of the business press would focus on this kind of story (a la “Bootstrapped and Profitable” from 37Signals.)
He’s a kid with limited technical expertise, who is using the Internet to build a fast-growing, small business.
He’s the kind of hustling, hard-working person the experts say doesn’t exist in his “millennial” generation.
“Everyone always tell you to be scared,” he says.
“Be scared of things going wrong, be scared of things not working, be scared of the people you meet online, but no one ever tells you that it could all actually work.”
