I became partners with Ed and bought a 50% share of a new cannabis dispensary.
This was also absolutely Ed’s brainchild, because she came up with the company plan, the location, and handled the financing.
I had to buy in, of course, which took all the cash I had in the world, plus a little extra. Now the store is open to the public, Ed and I are the managers and (for now) the only full-time employees. In another six months my pal and I hope to have enough company that my pal and I can hire a full team, and start offering cannabis cabin deliveries. In order to absolutely take off and start expanding, Ed and I have a plan in the arena for hiring new cannabis dispensary employees. My pal and I need to start with a full-time budtender to train as a new manager, but my pal and I also need a security guard for the front door, and a cannabis delivery driver. In time I assume my pal and I will need multiple cannabis delivery drivers, but my pal and I have to start with one… Right now Ed and I are definitely doing everything, which is certainly tiring and also means the cannabis store can’t stay open as long as my pal and I would like. Ed and I both have to be at the cannabis dispensary together all the time. One of us receives shipments of new cannabis products and enters them into inventory, while the other tends the shop and handles clients. Between filling the cannabis orders and handling the paperwork, my pal and I never have a moment to rest. But the profits are busy picking up, so I hope this is just temporary.
