David Miller & Erich Maelzer


Randomly through a family friend, two seasoned entrepreneurs were first introduced at the perfect time. Maelzer had just started his new cannabis cultivation company that was exploding with growth, while Miller was selling his business of 15 years seeking to find a more passionate life purpose. Maelzer's invaluable experience is self taught through the School of Hard Knocks and Mr. Miller's education is from MIT, Univ. of Tennessee, and Oglethorpe.

Maelzer has been a technically savy cultivator for decades in the SMB space and Miller ran sales and operations in corporate America and the SMB space for 20 years. Combining these operational and cultivation skills, their Yin-Yang approach to cannabis has created a strategy and business plan focused on quality, health, and wellness. There is a special leadership factor you'll learn by listening to their two different dynamics and it's exactly what the cannabis industry demands. This might surprise you the most...how is all this being done in a state (Tennessee) that doesn't legally allow marijuana? Maelzer and Miller share their personal journey so you can see "What's Next to Come" in cannabis.

Maelzer was born and raised in East TN with 3 beautiful adult girls, a loving wife, Shannon, a stepson Easton and two French Bulldogs, Toby and Lulu. Miller, also born and raised in East TN, has a blended family of 3 boys, adopted cousin, a cracker jack of a wife, Suzanne, and 3 dogs, Gogo, Jersey, and Alfi. Whether it's on a sandy beach or in a grow facility, you'll be amazed at the magic that transpires when these two get together!
