This Cannapreneur Is Making Dumb Vending Machines Smart

Dawn Dickson, CEO Solutions Vending International

Point blank, we’re just trying to grow — as entrepreneurs, as co-founders, as women, as creatives, as businesswomen. At EstroHaze, every week we accomplish more than the last and that is largely due to listening and learning from the experiences of fellow co-founders.

In this podcast episode, we talk to connector and entrepreneur, Dawn Dickson. This business woman is all about connecting her community and empowerment. Dawn is Co-Founder and CEO of Solutions Vending International, a software solution that makes vending machines smart. Her innovative first venture, Flat Out Heels, even helped women stay comfortable post club by selling flat shoes in vending machines! Here for it.

But why is she taking on cannabis? Dawn shares the big why and offers some great lessons for newbies on riding the entrepreneurship wave.

Here are a few takeaways, but don’t take it from me. Listen to the source:

  1. Trust yourself. It’s so important to go with your gut. If you believe that something is greater than you, trust We don’t listen all the time. Listen.

2. It’s definitely a marathon not a sprint. You know, they say it takes 10 years to be overnight success. That’s true. I’m living it now.

3. Understand that you need to pace yourself and celebrate every little every small victory.

4. Absorb every bit of information — every criticism, every rejection, every bit o praise, every perspective, and read as much possible.
