Cannabis Conference: What do you hope attendees will bring back to their business from your session at Cannabis Conference 2020?
Jade Stefano: Hopefully people will get a good handle on things to avoid. There are a lot of mistakes. We made mistakes along the way, so hopefully we can provide some information on what we’ve learned to keep people from making similar mistakes.
As far as best practices, hopefully people will have a good starting point for some basic things they can do that are cheap and easy and save you a ton of money and headache in the end. There are little things that one can be proactive about and really save a lot of hassle and money down the road.
