Legal cannabis is blazing. Everyone is talking about it, but few understand the key sectors, or the best way to profit and build wealth in the country’s fastest growing industry. Industry pioneer and corporate-to-cannabis crossover Dasheeda Dawson cuts through the misinformation and hype with How to Succeed In the Cannabis Industry, an incisive workbook offering a solid foundation in the marijuana business.
As part of an unprecedented push to bring 1000 entrepreneurs from financially vulnerable communities into the industry and create $100 million dollars in multi-generational wealth, Dasheeda has launched the “Sharing Success in Cannabis” book tour in support of the 3rd edition of her top-selling workbook How to Succeed in the Cannabis Industry. With clear, easy to follow examples, Dasheeda delves deep into the blossoming industry, providing an overview of every sector within cannabis, as well as the top roles and advice for breaking in.
Aimed at those interested in investment, entrepreneurship and changing careers, the workbook uses guided exercises to help committed readers develop personalized plans for success.
