I became partners with Ed and bought a 50% share of a new cannabis dispensary. This was genuinely Ed’s brainchild, because he came up with the supplier 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 directors and (for now) the only full-time employees. In another six months my pal and I hope to have enough suppliers that my pal and I can hire a full team, and start offering cannabis house deliveries. In order to genuinely take off and start expanding, Ed and I have a plan in locale for hiring new cannabis dispensary employees. My pal and I need to start with another full-time budtender to train as a new director, however my pal and I also need a security guard for the front door, and a cannabis delivery driver. In time I feel my pal and I will need several cannabis delivery drivers, however my pal and I have to start with one… Right now Ed and I are doing everything, which is genuinely 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 customers. Between simply filling the cannabis orders and handling the paperwork, my pal and I never have a moment to rest. But the profits are picking up, so I hope this is just temporary.
