Game Changing Growth
GrowLife is growing again but, as always, we want it faster. We must continuously remind ourselves that we are building an industry and not just a company. I have been waiting to complete our first half of the year to blog as a follow up on the Feb 24th blog posting of 2017 GrowLife Roadmap. However, I cannot continue to watch the market, and especially our sector, decline without speaking up. The bottom line is that our industry is being reshaped by a political tug of war between the Federal Administration and 30 States that have legalized Cannabis. These are growing pains.
In this posting I will address some key questions that have been floating around several bulletin boards about the Company:
- Where is GrowLife headed?
- What is the Company’s vision? Why?
- Why did GrowLife form an advisory board?
- When will we have a shareholder meeting?
- How can shareholders stay best informed?
