Lyna Thompson: Founder of the 420 Book Society talks the ups & downs of biz partnership, podcasting about cannabis and creating community online

This week I’m talking to Lyna Thompson, Founder of the 420 Book Society and co-host of the podcast Hitting the Window with Nick & Lyna. After working as a financial coordinator in the dental field for over 20 yrs and becoming a daily cannabis user, Lyna started exploring the cannabis plant on a deeper level. With all of this new found knowledge in hand, she couldn’t help but want to share this powerful information with others. This led to launching a podcast with her husband, Nick, focusing on how the use of cannabis is a normal part of their lives and highlighting all of the amazing people within the cannabis community. Lyna’s continued quest for more knowledge about cannabis in relation to many different topics led to her creating the 420 Book Society - a cannabis book of the month subscription for both the enthusiast and the curious.

In our chat, Lyna and I dig into the story behind how she & Nick started podcasting together about their ‘normal’ and having open and honest conversations about cannabis in daily life; Launching the super cool 420 book society and how it all works; Considerations when thinking about or going into a business partnership with someone; Building a business as a solopreneur and creating community online; Lyna's favorite cannabis book recommendations and more! Tune into our chat now!
