Finding Talent In The Cannabis Industry Denise Biderman & Taylor Aldredge Of Mary's List

When you’re assembling the team for your next Cannabis project, often you’ll need to bring in qualified people with industry experience, on a project or freelance basis. But who to trust? Where to find them? Enter Mary’s List. Since 2018, Mary’s List, at, has run an active Newsletter connecting those in need, with those that can, for the Cannabis Industry. I’m your host, Brian Weber. In this episode we’re welcoming Denise Biderman & Taylor Aldredge to discuss their personal and business journey in launching Mary’s List. In a very candid interview, they share the many obstacles they faced, and lessons learned, adding Mary to the ranks of Craig and Angie. This episode was originally recorded on May 22nd, 2019. As you’ll learn in this episode, they are both partners in business and partners in life. I’m very pleased to share that Denise and Taylor made it official, tying the knot this past New Years! Much love and success to them in 2020 and beyond!

Brian Weber

In addition to producing and hosting Lit Up Founders. Brian is the Director of Omnichannel Strategy and Partnerships for Flourish Software, a leading ERP Seed-to-sale Software company serving Cannabis and Hemp operators up and down the supply chain.

Prior to Flourish, through his company Digital Realty, Brian served the Retail and Hospitality Industries as a technology and business consultant focusing on POS, eCommerce, Payments, Loyalty, and other related services for the past 9 years.

In researching the Cannabis Industry, largely because of its Federal status and history in the US, he was fascinated in seeing what the entrepreneurs were building. With his experience as an entrepreneur, supporting entrepreneurship, some background in broadcast radio, and a love for the amazing medium of podcasts (especially "How I built this" by Guy Raz); all converged to create the spark moment that spawned Lit Up Founders. I hope you enjoy!

Brian holds a B.S. in Management Science & Information Systems from Rutgers University Business School. He currently lives in Jersey City, New Jersey with his dog Zeke.
