Have You Ever Had a Dream Come True? March 03 2015

Have you ever had a dream come true? Maybe you've started your own business, or created a piece of art, or conquered a fear, or traveled the world. If so, you're familiar with the feelings I'm having right now as I watch Green Man Cannabis Ranch & Amphitheater actually take shape.

The contributions and feedback received through the current Indiegogo campaign is another step on this journey that I've been on, and it is quite possibly the most exciting step. This is the step when all of you have joined me, you've shared your excitement through contributions, feedback, and spreading the word. This is the step where this project becomes no longer just mine, it become ours. 

Like many of you who have watched dreams come to fruition, Green Man Cannabis Ranch & Amphitheater started for me as just a seemingly crazy idea. Becoming the creator of the world's first weedery wasn't what I dreamed of when I was a little kid. It wasn't remotely along the lines of what I thought I'd be doing when I grew up. In fact it wasn't until a couple years ago I had the idea for it, but I haven't stopped thinking about it since. I tested the idea, tossing it around with some friends, family members and colleagues, taking note of their reactions. To my great delight reactions were, though varied, for the most extremely supportive or constructive. I realized this really was a good idea.

I felt like a kid on Christmas morning when an architect first presented me with a draft of blueprints for the weedery and we started editing and exploring what if's and why not's and fine tuning the layout. Next came the creation of the physical model of Green Man Cannabis Ranch & Amphitheater. This idea, this dream I tossed around with friends over a beer just months before, was now tangible -- it was something I could touch, feel and share with others. Now others had access to my vision. The more I saw this dream take shape and I received feedback from others, the more I knew this venue had to be created. There was no other option.

To all of you have already participated in the Indiegogo campaign through contributions or spreading word about the campaign, I want to sincerely thank you. To those who have not had time to look into the campaign, it will continue to be live until March 11th. Please feel free to share ideas, questions, concerns, and excitement with me -- I appreciate any and all feedback.
