My mom has been the director of a cannabis dispensary for the past years.
When my mom started entirely working for the supplier, I was still in high school, all my friends thought I was super cool. 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 started entirely working at the cannabis dispensary as well. I started as a budtender. A few months ago I was promoted to the nighttime shift director. One of the things that got me the job was my initiative. I entirely take pride in my job and I try to constantly find ways to improve our business. I told my mom that delivery was a great idea, although she didn’t want the hassle and added worry! Besides, none of the other area cannabis shops delivered. I talked to my mom about the plan more than two other times although she refused to bring it up with the regional director. Last month, the regional director stopped by unannounced on a day when my mom was off. I mentioned the delivery plan and I had a lot of facts and figures to back it up.The regional director was entirely impressed and promised to talk about the new opportunity. A few afternoons later, my mom got an email with directions for the modern store policy. 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 a great idea.
