I've kind of dropped off the grid a little bit; apologies for that. I took a business trip to Colorado, spent a week helping Women Grow prepare for Vegas, went to Vegas for a week for the National MJ Business Conference, then had a week of recovery with a few personal life turmoils thrown into the mix. Now I'm getting back into everything.
For people new to this story, I joined the Women Grow team two weeks before the National MJ Business Conference as one of two of their new Business Development Interns. They asked me to join them in Vegas, and I of course said yes. The conference was my first real experience of being inside of the cannabis industry; I had to dabbled on my own and with Ryan last year, but was never fully immersed. It was the initiation of a lifetime.
I thought everyone was exaggerating when they said you would be tired for months after Vegas; I thought, "I just did college at Truman, I can handle it!" But either I'm getting old or am out of practice, because Vegas was a killer. But at the end of the day, I wouldn't trade that week for anything.
Nobody Parties like Women Grow
Women Grow knows how to throw a party. We were the hottest ticket on Wednesday night for the private party in the hotel's Voodoo lounge on the rooftop with over 500 tickets sold - and completely sold out. I helped to get people checked into the party, then helped set up for the private Headset afterparty in our own suite...which I'm pretty positive blew every other party in Vegas out of the water.
