Chocolate Factory to become Marijuana Farm

I was just reading an interesting story about a chocolate factory possibly becoming a marijuana growing farm and had a good laugh. The Canadian factory in Smith Falls, Ontario previously made chocolates for the Hershey’s company for decades. Tweed Inc has now applied to grow medical marijuana in the location. The two businesses would probably compliment each other well; as after the customer has had some of the marijuana he or she will inevitably get the munchies and then go looking for chocolate bars ;-) [Read more...]

List of Wholesale Food Suppliers

list of food suppliers

I have been working on the list of wholesale food suppliers on the WholesalersNetwork directory and have noticed that quite a few smaller food producers have closed up shop over the years. I guess it’s in part because of the larger food producers and processors buying up the smaller players, but I’m also sure there’s a lot failing to adapt in this new economy. [Read more...]

400 richest americans

Bill Gates has topped the Forbes 400 richest Americans list again in 2013 with an estimated net worth of $72 billion dollars. That’s a lot of zeroes.

Same goes for social media and b2b, it has been a neglected area for many companies. More and more companies are starting to see that it’s about building relationships with current customers and an offshoot of this relationship building through blogs and social media then leads to creating new customers.

Best Toys of the 1980s

I was just browsing through Time magazine’s 100 greatest toys of all time list and remembered my childhood! Being born in the seventies, I was a kid in the eighties, so a lot of them brought back memories. I didn’t necessarily own many of them but I would have been bombarded with advertising of them at the time. [Read more...]

Funding New Products with Kickstarter

Do you have a great new product idea but don’t have the funds to design and develop it? Crowdfunding the money might be an option. Places like Kickstarter allows entrepreneurs to post their project online and have it funded by hundreds or sometimes thousands of “pledgers” wanting to see the product produced. [Read more...]

Forbes Billionaires List Live

Did you know that the Forbes magazine has an almost real time billionaire’s watch list? It’s not as accurate as their annual billionaires list as it only watches the stock prices of major holdings held by each business person. So if they have much of their wealth in private companies or real estate they can’t be measured on a daily basis. [Read more...]
