5 insider Tips With Author Jackson D. TIlley
“Ask for everything you’ve ever wanted. I never thought I would have been asked to do an interview like this, and I certainly didn’t think it would be as an author. I always dreamt of writing this book, and it wasn’t until I asked for it that it became a reality. You have to fearlessly chase your dreams and make no apologies for doing so. Everything I have in my life, I’ve had to ask for. No is just a two-letter word…don’t be afraid to ask for what will make you happy.”
I had the pleasure of interviewing Jackson D. TIlley. He’s the director of Public Relations and Community Affairs at Organa Brands, the country’s leading cannabis distributor. Jackson is also working on a really exciting new book that chronicles the modern history of cannabis in America–he’s using his experience working in the cannabis industry coupled with his own experience in sobriety to tell a fascinating story about one of the world’s most talked about new markets. Although he’s only 26, Jackson has already made quite the name for himself, and has been featured in publications like Forbes, The LA Times, and USA Today
Thank you so much for joining us! What is your “backstory”?
My story has long been a tale of good luck mixed with good timing. I got the opportunity to go to one of the most wonderful colleges in the country, The University of Colorado in Boulder. I met lifelong friends and mentors there who really steered me in the right direction throughout my adult life. It’s where I figured out that if you’re personable, doors open much more easily. I started working for a company that at the time was called O.penVAPE, and have been there ever since. It’s now known as Organa Brands, and it’s the leading cannabis distributor in the United States. I’ve always had a knack for relationship building, and I parlayed that into a career in Public Relations.
