I met marijuana-enthused shamans, aestheticians, and massage therapists, and I had two massages using oil with CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid extract from the marijuana plant. The massages were two of the best rubdowns of my life, likely because when applied topically — usually in the form of an oil or lotion — CBD has pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. And because of that, practitioners who use CBD are able to work muscles on a deeper level without any of the extra pain you'd get from a deep-tissue treatment."

Trying to get inside the mind of a customer is a complicated thing. It requires that you really dig in and look beyond the surface level details for meaningful takeaways. While you'll probably discover a lot, there's one truth you'll definitely uncover: customers crave personalization.

You've worked hard to gain each follower you have on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. That's why you love checking how many new followers you've gained every week. It makes you smile because what you're doing is clearly working. But once users find your brand and join your community, do they stay? When was the last time you checked how many people are unfollowing you each week? It's a number that can be just as telling than your new follower count.

How do customers find out about your business? According to a recent survey, 85 percent of small businesses stated that it's by word of mouth, or WOM. Since small businesses are more about the personalized approach, they are able to connect with customers instilling trust and loyalty, which ultimately passes onto friends. WOM isn't something you can purchase, but it's also not difficult to get. That said, this doesn't mean getting the most likes on Facebook or followers on Twitter.
