(Or sub out the word grandmother for mom, professional affiliate marketer, life coach or neuroscience coach)!
“You left a six-figure residual income on the table to launch a start-up in a new, (widely misunderstood) product on a global scale? Have you lost your mind?”
And, my personal favorite: ”Kary, are you selling marijuana?”
Interesting questions. Interesting times. I’m excited to share my experience and perspective on a new, legal-in-all 50 states, proprietary HERO product I recently discovered – and the pre-launch global business venture that comes along with it!
I feel led, primed and poised to help create wellness and lifestyle – for millions around the globe in the next 36 months.
Let’s dig into it! The story behind the story will, I hope, offer some education and perspective I think you’ll find helpful – whether you are an entrepreneur, a wellness professional or a life-long learner interested in integrative or complementary solutions to creating a balanced, happy and healthy life. I believe will be my finest chapter yet as an entrepreneur, wellness professional, and business coach. More importantly, I believe this chapter of my professional life will define my legacy of being a life-long learner and student of holistic modalities, helping people, and having the courage to be true to myself and my values in business.
In 2016 I went through many significant changes in my life: a long-distance move from my life-long home in Minneapolis, Minnesota to Denver, Colorado for my husband’s career as an executive labor and employment attorney; becoming an empty-nester after nearly 30 years of having a life full of kids; becoming a grandmother for the first time; and leaving a business after 3 years and as a top earner because it no longer resonated with my mind, body and soul. What a cluster!
Have you ever dealt with change on a massive scale? It’s difficult and complicated, to say the least. And even if you have training and experience, it isn’t always easy to follow your own life-coaching advice in the day-to-day pursuit of building a new, authentic, purpose-filled and prosperous life. It’s definitely a process.
So how does a grandmother, a mom, a wife, an affiliate marketing industry leader and neuro-coach get into the world of HEMP? For me, it was by complete accident. I reached out to a trusted friend and fellow leader from a past company, and she mentioned it to me. Being fairly new to Colorado, I knew very little about hemp, marijuana, THC and CBD, etc. I did know that it had become a multi-billion dollar and only growing bigger industry in the State of Colorado. I also knew that I had zero interest in smoking pot or getting high. But I was very curious about how it could help the body as a powerful anti-oxidant and dietary wellness supplement, and how it might dovetail with my personal passions and quest to help people deal with anxiety, depression and pain management, specifically. Many of my new neighbors from the pool and book club spoke about using it for pain relief, sleep, and other health issues. (Sidenote: I suffer from chronic pain from a car accident, I feel daily stress in the midst of al the change in my life, and I also have annoying menopausal symptoms that affect my sleep, mood and energy). Needless to say, I was open to a better way of living, especially when it came to incorporating a simple, safe, plant-based, one-stop-wellness-shop solution.
I started thinking, “WHAT IF there was something here in the hemp family of plants that I could embrace and partner with as an entrepreneur, affiliate marketer, neuro-coach, wellness passionista, mom, wife, friend, sister, animal lover, creative, empath and healer?” And as I learned more I started to appreciate this plant, the new technology and existing science behind it:
· What if that solution was a nano-enhanced technology with a sustainable, naturally grown hemp oil, which has been used for a wide range of healthy benefits dating back more than 3,000 years? What if this formula could help to optimize the mind & body, efficiently and naturally? What if it was grown on pesticide-free, non-GMO farms and bred for the CBD healing, medicinal properties vs. THC psychoactive properties that gave people a “high”?
· What if it had a unique liposomal delivery system, which dramatically improved the bioavailability of the oil? What if the product was considered a legal Dietary Supplement and contained industrial hemp extract derived from the whole hemp plant, which delivers healthful benefits, without the psychoactive or “high” effect associated with this type of botanical?
· What if this proprietary, non-THC (<0.3%) Phytocannabinoid Diol Hemp Extract used cutting-edge liposomal delivery methods to increase absorption of this exceptional natural compound? (Phytocannabinoid Diols help with pain management and feelings of relaxation).
Did you know that Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body, primarily in the immune system and the structures associated with healthy immune functioning? With these cannabinoid receptor sites spread throughout our entire bodies, it is paramount these receptors are working properly to keep this important internal system functioning to protect you.
This article is just scratching the surface of Hemp 101. Do you want to do your own research? (I highly encourage it). I recommend going to www.pubmed.gov and putting “cannabinoids” and/ or “CBD” + any health issue or disease state you are interested in or are currently dealing with. You will find over 20,000 peer-reviewed scientific articles there on anything – from different types of cancer, stroke, Diabetes, Parkinson’s, Epilepsy / seizures, Alzheimer’s – to Brain Injury, Trauma and more. Wow! Who knew? (I LOVE science – and it’s critical to me in the decision to attach my name, personal brand and energy to a product or a company).
Also, be sure to look up the U.S. Patent on Cannabinoids #6630507:
US Patent 6,630,507 Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants
“Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia. Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention.”
The Neuroscience Coach and Wellness Enthusiast in me – with a passion for helping people live better – almost fell off my chair (see post photo) when I read it!
So, to answer the question at the beginning of this article, THIS is exactly what a grandmother, mom, affiliate marketer, and coach is doing in an industry like this: Educating people and helping them live on a higher level – in their health, business and lifestyle!
The Global Market for Hemp has surged as interest in High Quality Hemp products continues to grow. U.S. Consumer sales of hemp products will reach over $7.1 billion in 2016, and the U.S. market for hemp products is expected to reach $22 billion in consumer sales by year 2020.
A Google search for “CBD” currently produces 109,000,000 results.
