My mom has been the director of a cannabis dispensary for the past more than four years, but when my mom started finally working for the supplier, I was still in school, then all our friends thought I was super cool, because my mom worked in a pot shop! I hung out in the lobby after school every day until my mom left at 5pm.
After I finished school, I finally started working at the cannabis dispensary as well.
I started as a budtender. A few weeks ago I was promoted to the nighttime shift director, one of the things that got me the task was our initiative. I entirely take pride in my task and I try to constantly find ways to improve my task and our business. I told my mom that delivery was a nice idea, even though she didn’t want the hassle and added worry, besides, none of the other cannabis shops delivered. I talked to my mom about the idea many different times even though she refused to bring it up with the regional director! Last week, the regional director stopped by unannounced on a day when my mom was off. I mentioned the delivery idea and I had a lot of facts and figures to back it up.The regional director was entirely impressed and promised to think about the new opportunity. A few afternoons later, our mom got an email with guidelines for the new store policy, and delivery sales have been through the roof since we started and that only proves my point. I hope my mom will be more eager to listen next time I have an idea.
