Jeff and Debbie Lessard
Debbie and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this amazing company. With the success I began to have from taking the Revive line sustainable hemp oils, I felt a very natural urge to share with people how powerful hemp/cbd oils were.
Our entire family is on our products in some capacity, whether it is the cbd oils or the skin care, and feeling healthier every single day. In my 20 years in network marketing, very seldom do you have what is happening right now, which is the resurgence of hemp, a company at the forefront of this movement in the MLM space and results from the products which are indisputable.
Debbie and I are extremely grateful to be a part of this amazing group. Achieving the Gold rank came because our main focus was on others’ success and not ours, and that falls in line with what Zig Ziglar always promoted “help enough other people get what they want and you will get what you want”.
Now that we have been involved, our entire family is now feeding their endocannabanoid system with the amazing Kannaway line of products and we are all sharing this discovery with others. From an opportunity standpoint, we are the category creator in the hemp/cbd space and to be compensated for helping others with their health is an awesome feeling!
Randy & Samantha Schroeder
Born in a middle class farming community in the mountain west, Randy learned early in life the values of work and entrepreneurship.
At 10 years of age, Randy was informed by his father that if he wanted to have the then fashionable bell bottom jeans, or have a ski pass, or go to the movies, these would all be dependent upon Randy’s ability to afford them with personal earnings.
Farm labor produces only minimum wages (Randy began working in the Idaho potato harvest with long hours of physically demanding labor in third grade). Randy learned almost immediately that entrepreneurship can be the answer. By age 11, Randy was a Watkins distributor, an Amway IBO, a representative of American Greeting Card Company and the American Seed Company.
Students at a local college made braided leather chokers and bracelets in shop classes. These were added to Randy’s brief case, along with decorative Avon bottle decanters which Randy gathered by knocking on doors and asking for them.
Every family within a 20 mile radius (all covered by bicycle…even in bitter cold mountain winters) became familiar with this phrase: “Hi, I am Randy Schroeder. I have a fine selection of everything, would you like to buy anything?” Many did.
Financial success, while never easy and always as result of relentless drive and a passion to succeed, came early to Randy. Though born in humble beginnings, Randy owned two airplanes by the time he reached 21 years of age…and owned over 100 franchised weight loss centers by the time he was 24 years old.
Randy’s interest in financial instruments led him to enter the financial services field. Among the trainings most loved by his audiences are his empowering and revealing discussions describing how to identify and overcome avoidance behaviors. Estas lecciones se basan en la formación que Randy recibió mientras trabajaba como corredor de bolsa en Merrill Lynch, Pierce Fenner & Smith.
The intrigue of time leverage, the fond reflections Randy had of his earliest experiences with Watkins Products (selling their spices and extracts), and his memories of explaining to people (at the ripe old age of 12) how to “make water wetter” with an Amway product called SA8, led Randy to explore anew the network marketing industry in 1990.
In the ensuing years, Randy Schroeder has become among the most successful and highly regarded figures in the direct selling industry. His career has taken him to virtually every corner of the world. The depth and breadth of his experiences are beyond compare.
Randy Schroeder has earned in excess of $1,000,000 in commissions for each of the past 24 years. Certainly this level of success and consistency is rare indeed. Randy has reached the pinnacle of success on both sides of the desk.
To equate Randy with business is to miss the essence of the person. Ask anyone who knows Randy what is most important to him; they all know. Randy’s first and foremost priority is the success of his relationships and responsibilities as a husband, father, and grandparent.
Randy believes that we are all spiritual beings, here sojourning upon earth in physical bodies. Randy is a devout Catholic, and holds strongly the view that each of us should choose our own version of spirituality, but all should, in fact, choose a version.
Recently Randy was asked to cite a favorite quote. His response was from Augustin of Hippo: “God made man for himself, and man will be restless until he rests in God.”
Dana Neubert & Mary Sides
It’s been just a couple of months now that we’ve been involved in our Kannaway business. We have an amazing opportunity to help change the quality of peoples’ lives in a positive way every day now. It is such an awesome feeling to be partnered with such amazing people and products! We use the Oils as a part of our daily routine now. We know it’s helping us and know this is something that is good for everyone. The Kannaway Corporate Team is awesome too. Lots of training tools, support, videos and so much more on the way!
Our business is growing, thriving and flourishing. Not because we are some big networkers!! No!! It’s because we are passionate about what we are doing, and when you can allow people to experience a product and feel the results for themselves, it just makes sense. The product is the big deal here. So thank you Kannaway for all that you do day in and day out to make this available for everyone to have and to share so easily!!
Melissa Temple-Agosta did not start her Network Marketing career the traditional way after being an executive in the corporate world for over 20 years. She enrolled as a Brand Ambassador with Kannaway 2 years ago after having a profound product experience herself after some life-changing injuries. She started sharing her experiences with others in a blog and eventually, joined Kannaway corporate as a guest blogger. This turned into a year at the corporate office helping with operations, support and human resources, leveraging her former expertise at L'Oreal in international sales and education.
Melissa has always taken pride in helping others discover the benefits of Kannaway products and educating them to help others. To her, it doesn't matter whose team someone is on or where they are positioned in the company. She is open to helping cross- line partners succeed and in turn, helping Kannaway succeed, because it benefits us all! We are a force to be reckoned with and the power we have to change lives is getting stronger every day, so she feels it is a key time at the company to experience this with more and more people around the world.
After 30+ years in and out of the direct sales industry, I have finally found my home. Kannaway is my dream come true. To be associated with such true professionals, in an industry that is going to grow beyond comprehension, is a blessing beyond words. While the financial benefits have been life changing, the effects of the products on people's lives is what has made the journey worth while. I will not stop sharing the good news of modern day prohibition until we are all Healthy, Wealthy and Wise!
From the beginning I know something was really special about Kannaway. Initially I was excited about the timing and opportunity but it has taken on some much more meaning now. Seeing firsthand the impact we are making in the world is now what excites me most. The phone calls I get from customers and BA's just to say thanks are the best.
I really enjoy getting in the trenches with my team. There isn't a such thing as a bad team only bad leadership. So one thing I have committed to is not being a leader that tells people what to do but someone that shows them what to do.
I am really excited about the future ahead of us. Every dollar of revenue represents a live that has been impacted. So I don't take this lightly. My prediction is that Kannaway will be one of the biggest companies our industry has ever seen and we will do it on the back of the product!! Product is KING here!
Wow what an incredible journey so far! My names Nicole Neubert, YES Dana Neubert's daughter! I started the oils a couple weeks after my Mom. She had been told about these oils and did a ton of research. If my own mother trusted in the oils I knew this was something to give a second look. Little did I know my whole life would be turned upside down.
With in the first 90 days of ingesting the oils, I lost 27lbs, and all pain had seem to be gone. That wasn’t the most amazing part though; my view of the world was transformed! It was though I had been trapped into negative thoughts. I started to realize how incredible life and people truly are. This life is about experiences and more importantly, it’s about helping others.
Kannway has given us the opportunity to transform lives. Every morning there’s a new text with an incredible testimony.
I am so honored to be apart of this movement! Thank you Kannaway for this incredible opportunity.
Bill And Susan Wilkinson
Life is a Journey. Both Susan and I are first and foremost thankful to have been introduced to Kannaway by a longtime friend and business associate Brad Tayles. Immediately following, to be reconnected with Jeff and Debbie Lessard. It started with the Right Timing and the Right Product that I needed for my health, but had not a clue what it was.
When you look for living proof of what feeding your Endocannabinoid System can accomplish, I’m that proof. After having the wind knocked out of me medically for the past 5 years, I honestly enjoy being able to work a full time and a half schedule in just several short months. While my medical condition has left me with some challenges, I continue to improve each day. If I could make a recommendation that would stick, it’s feeding your Endocannabinoid System with Kannaway’s Premium Hemp Oil Full Spectrum Cannabinoid Blend.
Since our introduction to Kannaway, we have accomplished things that we are very proud of. We have been given the opportunity to meet and associate our lives with some of the finest individuals you could name, as well as a company you can trust. With just a phone call from Brad, whose word is absolutely his bond, we were reintroduced to Jeff and Debbie, two of the finest people you could meet in life. They are truly committed to share this product with the world and we felt it, then it became our commitment to share the Kannaway product line with the world. Most of all, we were excited to be a part of a company of people that’s message of caring includes the benefit of “Getting Healthy, Not High”.
While the company produces the finest Hemp Oil products in the world for the human body, the
leadership and vision, from the CEO on down to the Customer Service Reps, cannot be matched. Their support of ECHOCONNECTION.ORG and their commitment to support and provide solutions to those in need, has made our decision to make this our full time journey, one that is worthwhile and has meaning.
Our success is not what is important. It is the team that we are building. One that has the commitment to change lives. The absolute best of the best. The individuals that hold full time jobs and juggling schedules that seem to have not one more minute of the day. They find the time to help others, while improving their lives in the process. People that took Jeff’s message to heart, “When you stop transacting, when it goes from your head to your heart, you’ve arrived”. Sue and I are very fortunate and blessed by their association. Our decision to take this on full time, traveling from state to state building and training a team that gets it, is now our Journey to hold. Building a Hempire, hope to see you on the road.
It all started when I had been following Damien Callias because of the flood in Baton Rouge & some of our great friends had just moved there & we couldn't reach them. Damien had started the Cajun Navy, the civilian rescue effort rescuing people from flooded homes, cars & business throughout the area.
Fast forward five months later & I saw him post about this miracle CBD salve & I knew I had to try it, because I suffer from systemic lupus & rheumatoid arthritis. It's been a long battle of taking weekly chemotherapy injections along with humira or enbrel, very strong drugs that made me very sick. The salve was a life saver! Two little sample salves & I knew this company was on to something! I could actually get out of bed in the morning & not be in pain, all because of this miracle salve! So I called Damien & told him I wanted it all! I could hardly wait until my box arrived & I will never forget it! It was a Thursday at 3:00pm when it came to my door & I wasted no time ripping open that box & took my Revive AM oil & was blown away! Fifteen minutes later I felt clarity in my mind & energy restored along with a dramatic decrease in pain in my joints. I knew then that Kannaway had a phenomenal product to represent & my mission was to share CBD with everyone I met! I watched Randy Schroeder's videos & I decided to double his goal of always speaking to 3 new people a day, to 6 & on most days during my first 3 months, I spoke to 10 or more a day. Before I knew it, I had earned a cruise for both my husband & I, several large bonuses & I ranked up to Regional Director. All this in less 2 months! And to be the free living my life as God intended me to.
I am so proud to represent Kannaway & to know we have the best leaders in the industry backing us every step of the way. Dr. Titus & his knowledge coupled with the leadership & program set before us makes Kannaway the leader in the CBD world. I'm so thankful I am part of this amazing movement!
Eight years ago, Juraj Mojzis was working at IT Slovak Telekom in Slovakia, repaying a car loan and living paycheck-to-paycheck. He was introduced to the idea of direct sales during this personally difficult financial struggle.“I was particularly interested in the possibility of making the same amount of money I would make in a month within a single week,” Juraj Says. At first Juraj was satisfied with the possibilities of exploring a new world of business, new possibilities and skills that would help him grow. But as time went on, Juraj began to see the importance of personal growth, being interested in the product and liking the company he worked for.
“The desire to make money by helping people was stronger and stronger,” he says. “I decided to quit the job I didn’t enjoy and where I worked for somebody else’s dreams. I put trust in my dream, work and direct selling.”
For two years he searched for a company that would help him achieve his professional and personal goals. Then he found Kannaway. More accurately, Kannaway found him.
“Respectively, Kannaway did find me. I had always on my mind what points are important for me and Kannaway answered all of my points and questions,” he says. As the Crown Ambassador for Kannaway, Juraj is passionate about his work and the products he sells.
“This is a unique product. Everyone needs it,” Juraj says. “Everyday I get calls from people [about] how great our products are and they tell me their experiences with the products.”
Juraj wants brand ambassadors from all over the world to feel included in the Kannaway family. He also wants to educate them on direct selling techniques and Kannaway’s company rules. He wants to make sure make everyone understands the compensation plan, the products and effective business-building strategies. From that desire came daily webinar trainings in different languages.
After eight years in the direct selling industry, Juraj is grateful that he took the chance to follow his passion for helping others while making enough money to get him out of his difficult financial state.
“I found out that having money is a good thing, but helping lots of people who love you and work with you is a wonderful feeling,” Juraj says. “But the most important thing — and the greatest reward — is who we become while making our dreams come true. I believe that’s the greatest gift of direct selling.”
Since 2006 I’ve been in love with hemp after learning about its many health benefits. To find out, through my friendship and respect for Alex Grapov, that I could use my love for Network Marketing and hemp in one company was one of the most exciting opportunities in my career.
I see Kannaway as a billion-dollar company and I feel it’s a blessing and honor to be part of its pioneer stage. What makes me most happy is my team is constantly growing and I strongly believe that they can reach the top!
Please pinch me! This is what I keep saying when we achieve the next level of rank. We cannot be more thrilled to see so many of our team members thriving and growing great global businesses. Now, after hearing all the testimonies coming in, I am not only convinced we have a life changing product but deeply passionate to reach millions and create the global hemp movement with Kannaway.
For the last 30 years I’ve been self-employed. After our catering business went under in 2011, my husband and I decided to be serious network marketers full-time.
We quickly realized it was the only way to get our life back on track. One year later we worked full-time in network marketing. At the beginning everything was new and ran really good. But in 2017 we had a falling out with our partners and began having thoughts about quitting the network marketing business. We said to ourselves „we will never work in network marketing again“, we had lost hope in the business.
Our son however, who studied biology, made us aware of Kannaway and the exciting topic of cannabis. „Should we sell marijuana now? Is that even legal?“ I’ve never had anything to do with the cannabis industry before. When we looked more closely to the possibilities of cannabis we realized what opportunities are standing at our door. The time was perfect. This idea had depth. The development possibilities really drove us towards the opportunity. A new hope appeared and we wanted to do it together with all our power. Finally we saw the light in the end of a long tunnel again…
A few days after we decided to join Kannaway came another stroke of fate.
Suddenly, in a completely unexplicable way, my beloved husband and faithful friend passed away.
„Should I give up now? Would he have wanted that? NO.“
For a long moment my world seend to have collapsed. I felt empty and out of sense. I had no more goals which would motivate me. Thanks to the Kannaway products, the support of my children, my upline and last but not least my new team partners I found the way back to life very fast. Today I can say that I am very grateful for the opportunity
I started to fight and to immerse myself in the new task. This was what drove me on the road to success. After a short time everything turned into a right direction and the success confirms day by day, that my decisions to keep fighting and never give up were right.
Today I can help thousands of people by impacting their lives with our products and to help them live their life to the fullest. That is what connects me to Kannaway.
I want to share my story to the world as one of triumph and inspiration! In high school I was ask what career do I want in life, I said I wanted to become a Entrepreneur! Later on, in my senior year of high school, I was directed to read the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, and it changed my life!
After high school I was able to get a scholarship to go to college, and then kept reading business and self-help literature. Brian Tracy’s book, Maximum Achievement, Kiyosaki’s book, Rich Dad, Poor Dad, and a wide variety of other personal growth books became his specialty!! And began to see that the suffering that people had been through could be overcome and turned to a positive through the power of positive thinking!!
I was in search of the American dream and started joining multilevel marketing companies! I lost faith in 2 of the immediately and when I found one company and did well with, it collapsed just as I and my wife Sonia were expecting our first child.
We did not give up, but they did lose faith in MLM. Going deep into debt. So I went into Real Estate and become the Top Earner in the company within short period of time and become the youngest millionaire at 24!!! Life was great for years and beautiful Family, beautiful home!! Life was incredible great and until the big Real Estate crash! Going from incredible amount of income to being incredible broke! It was during this time, I remembered a meeting I once had at a Network Marketing! If I was to start all over again, it would a MLM! So that's what I did and was in search for a right company align with!
I believe everything we experience happens for a reason: Good or bad, the detours actually help to re-route us to reach our final destination. My passion has always been helping others and sharing our story.
Just like you, the leaders Kannaway were once in searching for the perfect opportunity to achieve those freedoms, which I believe we found it!! Now our mission is to share this Amazing CBD Movement! It’s time for us ALL to be fully educated and empowered on the CBD Movement! It’s time for us to unite and work together to change the public’s perception about this sacred plant that has been used for 5,000+ years!!! Join The Hempire!
There's More to The Story, and It's Just the Beginning!! Koach Andrew

I grew up in a small town in Denmark on the South Zealand called Vordingborg. I went through primary school and did my upper secondary school there as well. After that, I started my hairdresser/stylist education, but after years of struggling with human hair allergy, I decided to end my career. That’s when I started my job as a mentor for young people with Down’s Syndrome, which has more or less been my occupation since the last many years. This job has helped me develop as a human being, and my professional life grew a lot by working with these handicapped people every day. I felt blessed and grateful for being a part of their life and wellbeing. I'm still working at this private facility with young people with Down's, and I don't think I ever can stop doing this. It has been a part of my life for so many years, and working with these young people gives me so much back.
I have been married to Andreas for 22 years, and together we have our daughter Leonora, and her and our son-in-law have enriched our lives with a beautiful granddaughter Nova. Nova is my world and my ‘’why’’ in this life, and she gives me the love, energy, and drive to follow my path and to move on every day and do things with passion. We live close to each other in a little village called Kalvehave, not far from where I grew up. It's fantastic to be such a big part of her life and to be close to my family.
A very close friend of mine had me realize what this whole Direct Selling and Network Marketing industry was all about when I joined an earlier company 5 years ago. Later, we followed our corporation into a new company. That’s when it got crazy, and I started to realize the explosion and volume and not at least opportunity with this industry. I built a strong organization and got myself a huge network and friends along with this business. My self-development really was at its highest and the movement of this whole journey was amazing. After some good years with this company, I did learn a lot about people and people’s intentions with me. I was in a struggling place in my life around 6 month back and I went to my upline, sponsor, and of course my friend, and we talked for several weeks. Suddenly, he had me say yes to go to a meeting with our now current upline in Copenhagen at the Hilton hotel. After the meeting, I was not doubting this at all. It was a perfect time for me with the shift and fresh start in the industry and also along with passion for my plant based lifestyle. Well long story short, everything just made sense, and now I am just grateful that I had made this decision.
My favorite thing about working in this industry is the opportunity it gives me to reach the freedom I want in life. Every day I hear new stories from customers and business partners: stories that touch my heart and make me believe even more in our amazing products, company plan, and not at least our amazing team and organization we’ve built. I know that with this company and this great organization I will reach my goals in life and be independent.
When I nailed it the first time in this industry with my former company, I realized how important it is to be yourself and listen to yourself. Along my journey, I’ve met great coaches and people who have worked this industry for several years, and they have also gave me a lot knowledge and shared their wisdom and experience with me. However, at the end, we all have different ways to treat our business. We all have different views on the industry on how to, what to and where to, but I will always be myself, because that’s what people know, and always I will follow my good feeling in all of my decisions and moves.
I joined this company February 2018, and since then, it has just been mind-blowing growth with this team. I’ve found my spirit again and the right thing to believe in. This is where I want to be and live out my energy, along with my development and plant-based lifestyle. My life has definitely changed, and I have once again found my path. Besides the greatest support from all of my family, I can now work with peace in my soul, knowing that everything I do is one step closer to freedom for me and my beloving family.
My goals with this industry is to build a solid, strong, and most of all honest business globally together with my amazing team. My goal is to create a fundamentally strong team where everybody gets success and to spread shining eyes over the people I can help, thanks to Kannaway, the greatest direct selling company on earth. Talking about ranking, my next goal is National Director Elite.
