What was the deciding factor for you to join this particular industry?

What skills from your previous experiences helped you in what you are doing now?
Prior to Magical Butter, I was named one of the top 100 financial planners in the United States. Through the years in that position, I advised inventors and other entrepreneurs, helping them build grants and negotiating with media and advertisers. I was born to work in this industry and do what I do.
Right now, where are you guiding your passion and energy towards?
The passion and energy at the office is electric. Our team at Magical Butter is focused on expanding international distribution and creating more products. We recently launched in Australia, South Africa, and Portugal – and I have to say, it’s exciting to watch the brand grow. Beyond that, we have several new products that are in their final rounds of testing. I am very proud of what my team is doing. It’s very energizing!

Describe your work ethic to me in one word.
What do you consider your weakness as an entrepreneur? Your strength?
My weakness as an entrepreneur is also my strength. I have a great family that I enjoy more than words and if it weren’t for them, I’d likely never leave the office. My strength is my attitude – I believe in the power of positive thinking. It’s rare that I get upset, I focus on finding solutions, and I avoid drama. I’m happy and it’s infectious at work and at home.
How are you differentiating yourself from the competition?
Magical Butter is building a family of customers and employees. We treat everyone well and provide real customer service. We have a great social network following on YouTube, on Facebook (where we have 175K+ fans), and on our Facebook forum. Then our Magical Butter Users United where we have another 7K+ members. It’s there that our customers can interact and answer each other’s questions. And of course, our advertising is visual, fun, and happy which is very unique to Magical Butter.
How do you find inspiration in this industry? What have you found that has inspired you?
In the cannabis industry, inspiring stories surround you! The most inspiring of them are those children and adults who are diagnosed terminally ill and seeing them get a second chance at a happier and healthier life with cannabis. Working closely with pediatric cannabis therapy has given me insight into the behind-the-scenes struggles these parents and children face. Their stories are amazing and inspire my activism.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever gotten?

Where do your great ideas come from?
I listen to people and I search for happier, healthier solutions to their problems. They get written on a whiteboard that I look at daily. Some get erased, while others stay. Ideas and concepts come to life late at night when I’m in a creative mindset and I get so deep in thought that I make the design real.
What is important to you – mission, vision, or core values? Why?
Well, mine is more different. What’s important to me is happiness and health and I think they go hand-in-hand. I want to help others at home, at work, and at play. That’s really what my mission comes down to is ensuring that people are happy and healthy.
What will we be seeing from you and Magical Butter in the coming future?
Magical Butter will release several new products in the coming months. In May, the Magical Butter paragliders will begin flying daily in California, Florida, and Australia along the coastline. Last year was the first annual CannaBall run where we traveled from Seattle to D.C. introducing customers to our brand. This year’s CannaBall run will be bigger, better, and even more fun, so keep a close look out for that! Continued growth and happiness is Magical Butter’s long-term future and I believe that in order to do that, we all have to help each other out.
