Kannaway would like to congratulate Dana Neubert and Mary Sides on reaching the rank of National Director Elite.
Mary and Dana first joined Kannaway in 2016, after they each had positive product experiences. Like most, their first interaction with the benefits of CBD oil came in the form of Kannaway’s salve.
The pair were working with Jeff Lessard at a solar company when Jeff overheard Mary complaining about her feet. He gave her a sample of Kannaway salve to try, and Mary loved it. She joined Kannaway shortly after, realizing the potential behind the line of products.
Dana remained resistant to Kannaway. It wouldn’t be until two months later that she would try our salve on her back. She quickly became an advocate, talking up CBD oil to everyone she came across. This would prompt Dana to join Mary in Kannaway.
“I was trying to find other employment, and door after door kept closing on me. Finally, I said ok, universe, I get it. I’ll join Kannaway with Mary!!”, Dana said of making the decision to go into CBD oil business full time with Mary.
The products have become a driving force behind the passion Mary and Dana have for Kannaway. “We have fallen in love with every product Kannaway has available,” Dana told us. “We use most of them daily, but I think it’s fair to say the Superfood Greens and the Kannaway Gold are my favorites. Mary loves her Premium and PM combined nightly.”
The two have both personally felt the beneficial effects of CBD and are constantly sharing our travel salves and energy chews as a way to introduce Kannaway to others.
Dana and Mary are also active within the Kannaway network. “We love our Kannaway community!”, they told Kannaway in our interview. “There is so much to support; lots of activity locally, regionally, and on a national basis.”
The pair attend Kannaway’s corporate webinars, plug into weekly training calls, travel for Kannaway Roadshow events, and never miss a national convention. Mary and Dana are also active online and are members of several Facebook groups that present unique opportunities to interact with fellow Brand Ambassadors, ask questions of the Kannaway community, share events, watch training videos created by Kannaway’s top performers, and much more.
“We are also honored to have been invited to sit on our Kannaway Advisory Council,” Dana told Kannaway. Participating on the Kannaway Advisory Council allows the pair to relay the concerns of BAs throughout the Kannaway network to our corporate team and ensure that all BAs share an outstanding Kannaway experience.
How did Dana and Mary reach their level of success? “Much of our success can be summed up in 3 little words – ignorance on fire.”
Once the BA team had their personal product experiences, they began discussing Kannaway with everyone they knew. Without the knowledge they have now, Dana and Mary started out by sharing short, simple to watch and understand videos that did the talking for them.
The pair would also get help from their up-lines, like having Jeff Lessard joining them on calls with their candidates. Now, after building up their confidence and experience, they are helping their team plug into their local communities by teaching the knowledge and tools they’ve mastered to help others repeat their process.
What advice do Mary and Dana have for new Brand Ambassadors? “I would say to make a decision to be all in,” Dana told us. “Find someone who has the success you desire. Watch what they do, ask questions, and keep it simple. Lock arms with them and keep putting one foot in front of the other. Success leaves clues. Look for them, recognize them, and implement them. Be excited, follow some simple guidelines and have fun with it!!”
Their success means that Dana and Mary have helped a lot of people improve their health and their wealth. Success with Kannaway has also given the pair much more freedom with their time. Freedom they use for family, to travel, and just to have flexible schedules that allow them to take advantage when opportunity arises.
There are many who have inspired Mary and Dana in Kannaway, but the one that stands out above all is their friend, mentor, and sponsor, Jeff Lessard. “He was willing to go with us anywhere, anytime we needed him,” Dana said. “He and I flew back and forth to Denver many times getting our business off the ground. We owe a lot to him for caring enough about our health to share with us this amazing product, the benefits, and when we were ready, the business opportunity.”
During our interview, we asked Dana and Mary what the most important tool at their disposal was. Their response? “How do we pick just one? We have so many!!”
While the BA team loves the support and training videos that can be found in the back office and never miss an event if they can help it, they named the ECHO charitable organization and its website as one of their favorite resources. Seeing the impact that CBD and monetary donations made by Kannaway and our team have on ECHO families drives the pair to promote the advantages of hemp far and wide.
What would the pair have done differently if they had known then what they know now. Dana answers, “If I would have been able to know how impactful and fun this was going to be, I would have started so much sooner with Mary!!”
Mary and Dana enjoy participating in every call, webinar, event, and question that comes their way. The team are so grateful to be able to lead, help, teach, and train others about the Kannaway products, benefits, and opportunity.
Why do they attend to their downlines with such passion? “We celebrate our Rank Advances by recognizing those who are the real reason we’ve had any success at all,” they tell us.
Please join us in celebrating Dana and Mary’s achievement in reaching the rank of National Director Elite!
