We had the good fortune of connecting with Josh Harris and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Josh, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I think risk is the best way of trusting yourself. It’s easy to do the same thing that you seen other people do because you know what the results will be. When I started to trust myself more I started seeing more progress in all areas of my life. There were plenty of mistakes I made and I’m sure there will be plenty more but I’m happy I can even make those mistakes because it’s taking me closer to where I want to be.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
So JussChill CBD is your best source of CBD infused products. All products are handmade, cruelty free and lab tested. The biggest issue that I saw in the CBD oil industry are the prices. You can’t go to any store and find anything that has CBD on it less the $50. I felt that was a huge issue because not everyone could get a chance to experience the benefits of CBD. Another problem that I saw was the amount of CBD in each product. It’s all very low dosage so in order to feel the effects you’d have to use a ton of it. All of JussChill products are high strength.
With CBD oil being a fairy new industry it was very hard to get started. Being that CBD comes from cannabis it’s not accepted in many places. So finding a platform for my website, a bank, and advertising are some of the many issues I deal with.
Excuses won’t get you any where so I had to do a a lot of leg work. I went to gyms, smoke shops, health stores etc. all around the city giving out free samples. This helped me get a lot of exposure. I also made deals with many social media influencers to spread the word as well.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My parents for one because without them I don’t know where I’d be. And me. It’s been plenty of times I wanted to give up and try to put my degree to work again but I knew I wouldn’t be happy in the long run.
