Learn how Melissa Temple-Agosta has found success with Kannaway so quickly:
“Finding Kannaway last year changed my life- literally. I was not looking nor was I ready for a new business opportunity yet, after having been laid off from a career that spanned over 20 years and having a major neck surgery all within a few months. However, once I heard the story of the founders and the mission the company was on, all I needed was to believe in the efficacy of the products. Once I had that experience and was able to get off all of my toxic medications- that was all she wrote. I was in! Thanks to my friend and colleague Valerie Aloisio, I was introduced to an opportunity and an industry that was going to be on fire and change everything. I had resisted joining network marketing and direct sales companies for a long time- although they had come to my doorstep many times over the years. I was always a customer, never an entrepreneur. I didn’t consider that this could be something that I could do and have a better, more flexible and healthier lifestyle as a result.
Now, I am building a business and taking part in the evolution of a company that is a force to be reckoned with in the Hemp industry. We have a lot to do together to make this company the legacy it is going to be and it is already proving to be an amazing journey! Talking to others about our products, history and opportunity continues to fascinate me every day. I love trying new lingo out to see what is most effective and passing it on to my team- we are all in this together! It’s a challenge sometimes to answer tough questions that walk the fine line between wellness and medical conditions or to explain how they will get compensated in this business. I am learning more and more every day and it is fulfilling just educating others on what I have discovered. I have learned that it is best to encourage people to do their own research and to educate themselves through shared links and articles from trusted sources including our own parent company, MJNA, Inc. It’s best to be honest, up front and clear.
It’s so cool to work with others that also want to build their own businesses, yet need a network of individuals that all come with their own strengths that we can all take advantage of and leverage when we need it. People that come from the corporate world don’t have to feel that they are out there alone, fending for themselves. There are so many people in our organization ready and willing to help. Being on the Advisory Board is part of the desire to help everyone to become successful in their Kannaway business. Helping this company grow and evolve via the feedback from our team is one of the best parts of this experience. We will only succeed as a united team with the same goals, passion and desire to grow.
I always try to lead by example and show others how I represent our brand- not taking liberties with the core messages and image that the brand has established. It is a responsibility, not a choice. There are so many ways to do this and I encourage my team to be flexible and try new things to see what works best. Is it an in-home Hemp Social or is it an online Facebook Social? Is it attending a large conference or is it attending a local school fundraiser? Whatever route taken should be fulfilling and reach people that need our products and our business opportunity. Helping people live healthier lives with more freedom to enjoy their families and the world around them is the best part of this business! I am proof of that!“
