Episode 56 - Stormy Simon
Former President of Overstock.com turned Cannabis Advocate
Stormy began as a temp without a college degree and grew to become the President of Overstock.com. When she joined in 2001, revenue was less than $20M and the company had under 100 employees and it became a top 25 e-tailer by traffic and grew to nearly $2B in revenue.
In July 2016, Stormy stepped down as president of Overstock.com to pursue a career in the burgeoning cannabis industry. Her team helps conduct workshops on how to get a grassroots movement going and how to build a business out of nothing – they are dedicated to education and awareness.
Today, she has been voted Cannabis woman of the year and continues to open doors for entrepreneurs in the industry. We talk about the big transition, and the gold rush that is, the legal Cannabis market.
