How do you like our new tagline, ‘Entrepreneurship Served Daily’?
Process is the fuel that energizes progress. Yet many entrepreneurs view process as a dirty word reserved for General Electric and Six Sigma classes. When a fledgling business has no structure in place to manage common business issues and conflicts, the entrepreneur is left to plug the holes with whatever is on hand.
Your “go to” strategy is to plug your fingers and toes into as many holes as you can, as fast as you can. If the day’s crises are particularly bad, you might need your tongue or an elbow. After all, we entrepreneurs are pretty resourceful. You may slow the tide for a day, but it’s very likely that more holes will show up tomorrow—more than you can manage with your extremities.

The story of this serial entrepreneur goes back to the 1990s, when he had built a small regional chain of stores in British Columbia. In 1998, Zwicky began developing the online version of its stores on its own as a separate business model, and later developed a full-service online marketing agency specializing in SEO.
However, his focus shifted six years ago. People very close to him began experiencing health issues such as terrible nerve pains, and symptoms of the early stages of Parkinson’s and other diseases that can be devastating.
“I saw them try medicinal cannabis products such as creams or topical oils and the like, and I saw the effect these medications had on them,” Zwicky says. “That allowed me to recognize that there was something big and unknown about medical cannabis and I wanted to learn more.”
