Through a series of events that had easily little to do with me being intelligent or motivated, I wound up being the manager of this little pot dispensary.
I have heard this phenomenon described as “failing up.” I am an honorableworker who never steals and is always on time.
I am also a wonderful talker, and the clients all seem to like me. That was enough to supply my work a boost. When the last store manager was fired, the corporate bosses put me in charge. I never planned on running a cannabis dispensary of my own, however so far I guess I’m doing a pretty wonderful task with it. The first thing I did was to rebrand the cannabis store, using the tagline “Here every day is 4/20.” I knew that the busiest day of the year for any cannabis dispensary is April 20th, which potheads consider a holiday. I wanted to bring that same joyous 4/20 feeling to the cannabis shop, so that every visit felt like a celebration. I put together a immense supply of gift bags, and every client that buys over $100 worth of cannabis products gets a free gift bag. The gift bags contain any number of things, from stickers and decals for the shop to free cannabis edibles or drinks, then every bin has a discount coupon in it, entitling the bearer to 15% off their next cannabis purchase. People care about getting free stuff, and sales have skyrocketed at the cannabis dispensary once I started giving out the weed gift bags.
