I am not sure why, but I thought opening a cannabis dispensary was going to be straightforward.
I thought the parent contractor would handle all my hiring, training, and manage the online presence. As the chief employer, I had to get my training completed, hire and train my employees, manage an online presence, and take care of the inventory. I had just walked into a task I wasn’t sure I could manage. I had several interviews with an employer named Sam from the parent corporation, and he had confidence in me. I told Sam I thought I had bitten off more than I could chew, but he told me to have faith in myself. I had managed to start, open, hire, and train everyone for several fast food restaurants. The cannabis dispensary was no more odd than fast food, except for odd laws and inventory. It was a challenge Sam knew I was up to. Sam showed me where all the information was in questions to ask when hiring, what type and how much inventory I needed, and even in training. Sam also handed me the booklet that talked about which online marketing companies I could use to get my new website up and running and to do my marketing; Since my parent contractor paid for all my marketing and web development if I used 1 of the online marketing companies, I knew I was going to be okay. I wished Sam had given me the books before I got myself into a tizzy about managing a cannabis dispensary. I would already have a website development underway, and looking at cannabis dispensary experts to do all my marketing and pre-marketing to let people know that there was a new cannabis dispensary coming to the area.
