Denise Biderman: Co-Founder & CEO of Mary's List talks cannabis freelance marketplace, carving out your niche and mental toughness
This week I’m talking to Denise Biderman, Co-Founder and CEO of Mary's List. A former criminal attorney, Denise took her passion for helping people from the court rooms of New York City to the cannabis space. Mary's List is a freelance services marketplace for the cannabis community allowing businesses to hire freelancers and other service professionals on a project-to-project basis. It hopes to serve as a catalyst for normalizing work in the industry and bridge the gap for community amongst professionals in the space, all over the country.
