Growing U, LLC
Your turnkey business solutions provider.


Human Resources isn’t a thing we do. It’s the thing that runs our business.
— Steve Wynn

Our Vision —

To provide compliance services and support for the cannabis and hemp industries, and to create sustainable solutions for years to come. Our vision is one where success is based on more than just offering the cheapest price, but a place where our values align with yours.

We know first hand all the balls you need to juggle when it comes to owning and operating your own business, because we are doing it ourselves. In industries that are already heavily regulated, and with so many other forms of compliance to worry about, HR is something that commonly falls through the cracks. Instead of having yet another form of compliance to worry about, let us take that burden off of you. Collectively we have over 20 years of HR experience between us. Who are we? We are Carrie and Edana, the owners of Growing U, LLC. We have experience across industries, including energy, transportation, retail, and non-profit.

So what’s it like to work with us? Here’s how we help clients (re)gain control over their business... We start by getting to know YOU. We want to learn all about you, your business, your hopes and your dreams. We want to know about any issues you’re having or any fears that are keeping you from doing what you love most — focusing on your business! So we set up the consultation over a coffee date, and get the conversation started. We listen to you and help you to decide if now is the right time for you to hire an outside consultant. We work to determine the scope of work you may need, i.e. if it’s project-based, consulting, or outsourcing. We work within your budget; if now isn’t the right time to do everything, we will work to get you brought up and compliant and then we’ll work on the rest as we can. When you work with us, you will walk away knowing how to better identify any risks that may come your way, and how to handle those situations. When you work with us, you will walk away knowing you have the tools and resources to address those risks before they become lawsuits.

What is that peace of mind worth to you?
