Governments of Colorado and Washington are already seeing the benefits of legalization and slowly a lot more governments around the world are leaning toward legalization. Cannabis Production Manager was one of the jobs we had a job order for, we should start seeing more of these are legalization slowly becomes more mainstream.

Uber Driver

Here is an example of things you’d want to keep on your check-list.

Soft Skills – The Best Hidden Tool Your Sales Person Could Have

It is a brand new year and reports and targets are everywhere. But, let’s face it – targets are pointless without a team of hardworking, intuitive sales people.
