Cannabis cultivators
need a wake up call.

...and not just because their indica is too strong.

Cannabis cultivators face all kinds of
challenges—licensing, regulations, costs, the
munchies, losing their piece in the couch cushions, you name it.

But when it comes to the biggest threat, the industry is less like a stoner comedy and more like a thriller, because the call is coming from inside the house!!

Heres the harsh truth:

harsh truth

There’s a stubborn stigmatization around professional sales in the cannabis industry. This stigma is understandable, but it’s holding cannabis businesses back, and it’s leaving the entire industry wide open to disruption by mega-corporations looking to cash in on the “green rush.”

Francesca helps audiences plant the seed to make their businesses—and the craft cannabis market overall—more resilient.


In her speech No One Grows Alone, Francesca challenges cannabis businesses to adapt and evolve.

Set stubborn stigmas ablaze.

Like a glimpse into the future, this speech inspires a massive shift in thinking. Francesca destigmatizes professional sales in cannabis and gives audiences the tools they need to build more sustainable cannabis businesses.

By showing cannabis producers how to change their mindset and build professional sales programs, Francesca helps them cultivate consistent growth now so they can reap the harvest (plus way more business) later.

No One Grows Alone isnt just a speechits a powerful, necessary call to action.
