Tanisha Robinson has truly led a wonderful life, doing everything from being an Army linguist to advocating for women’s rights in Syria to building the BrewDog USA division from scratch, as well as founding a number of startups. Tanisha’s latest venture is W*nder, which is carving out its space as a CBD beverage company, an industry that is likely to grow a lot in the coming years. But more than just building a successful business, Tanisha builds impactful businesses — and if there is one industry that needs conscious warriors waging a war for equity, it is the cannabis industry.
