Jared Mirsky: Building a Cannabis Empire

Episode Summary

Weed. Grass. Reefer. Dope. Ganga, Skunk. Mary Jane. Herb. Pot. Whatever you want to call it, It's all cannabis, Marijuana. It comes in many forms and it's a tremendous global legal and illegal market. Here in the US the marjuna reform is spreading like wild pot fire across the country, and this couldn't make me happier. In the US as many states are or have legalized medicinal and recreational marijuana, the market has exploded and with that, created a new industry that needs market support. Since 2009, my guest today, Jared Mirsky and his award-winning cannabis-focused branding and marketing agency, Wick & Mortar have been doing just that. They have been featured in dozens of magazines including Entrepreneur Media, Forbes, Wired, Cheddar, National Geographic, Huffington Post, and CNN Money. 2018 was the most explosive growth year yet, and Wick & Mortar continues to rack up awards and honors such as Top 40 under 40 in Marijuana Venture Magazine and most recently ranked #193 by Entrepreneur 360. Not content with simply winning awards, Jared continues to shape an industry and is now a regular contributor to Forbes, High Times, Entrepreneur, and The Fresh Toast. Despite the successes, for Jared, the greatest achievement in his life is his son. Rebranding #Cannabis is his mission, and he aims to accomplish this by helping to educate the industry on the power of successful branding in the cannabis space and the impact it has on the world. I am super excited to have him on the show today to talk about his journey and a whole lot more... #podcasthost #cannabisretail #cannabisbusiness #cannabiscommunity
