Can you tell us more about yourself and why you decided to call Kansas City your home?
KC is home by default since I was born here. I’m really a beach girl but I have roots and history in KC that is difficult to replicate when moving.
How has the industry changed since you got started?
I’ve been in the cannabis industry for a year now and it changes frequently in fact almost daily. There’s is a huge supply of retailers in KC of CBD which some of those intend to move forward with medical marijuana. I’m going to stay just as I am offering holistic health education as well as herbals, CBD and tea. I know there are people who want and desire a more natural way to health and take care of themselves.
What is a mentor to you? Did you have any mentors growing your business?
A mentor to me is someone who can be a point of reference to offer suggestions, provide feedback and be encouraging from a place of experience and wisdom. I have not really had any business mentors. I’ve had a couple of colleagues that I bounce ideas off of but not a mentor per say. I wish I did have one!
What were the most important business lessons you learned when starting to grow your business?
I’ve learned to be thorough when asking questions and gathering information.
Any advice you could offer to people new to the industry and considering doing what you’re doing for a living?
The advice I would offer is have a realistic plan but be flexible enough to move with the flow of your business. Not everything is going to go as planned!
