I wish that he could understand that it was a business decision
When you own a business, sometimes you have to make incredibly tough decisions. I hired my sister-in-law to work at one of my medical and recreational marijuana dispensaries. My brother said that she had lots of experience and I thought it would be nice to have someone in the family at that dispensary location. I spent 6 weeks training my sister-in-law for that position. She didn’t seem very interested in learning about marijuana and the medical and recreational science and laws. I thought it was important for the manager to know all of the information and I urged my sister-in-law to take the educational classes that I sent to her via the computer and email. The classes were free and I wanted her to attend them the next month during June. She ignored all of my emails. We got into quite an argument at Thanksgiving, because I wanted to talk about the store. I dropped the conversation for my mother’s well-being, but the next day I went to the marijuana dispensary and told my sister-in-law that she was going to need to find another job. She wasn’t going to work out at the marijuana dispensary and I didn’t want to waste any more of her time or mine. My brother still won’t talk to me after I fired his wife. I wish that he could understand that it was a business decision. There was absolutely no way that I could keep a manager working at the store that had no interest in learning more about the marijuana business. I needed someone that was more enthusiastic about the job.
