Raja and Kathleen's story is one of reinvention, resilience, and the power of unity in the face of adversity. Their journey began when they moved in together, with Raja working as a consultant and Kathleen supporting their life together. In 2015, Raja unexpectedly lost his main consulting gig, and the couple knew they needed to pivot and explore new opportunities.
Recognizing the growing potential of the cannabis industry in Oregon, Raja and Kathleen decided to embrace the challenge and create the lives they wanted to live. They got married in August and, despite facing homelessness in October, the couple remained determined to turn their lives around.
Inspired by the resilience and comeback spirit of the classic 80s film "The Goonies," Raja and Kathleen relocated to Astoria, Oregon, the town where the movie was filmed. With unwavering determination and a shared vision, they founded Marijuana Software to revolutionize the cannabis industry.
Eight years later, Raja and Kathleen's journey stands as a testament to the power of reinvention, the strength that comes from facing adversity together, and the potential for success when you have the courage to chase your dreams.
