Melissa Temple-Agosta did not start her career in cannabis the traditional way after being an executive in the corporate world for over 20 years. She enrolled as a Brand Ambassador with Kannaway 5 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.
Next, she started one of the first PEO (Professional Employer Organization) for the hemp and cannabis industry- helping companies provide support to their employees just like other “traditional” businesses- including HR, staffing, recruiting, on boarding, training, insurance, payroll, 401K and safety. Melissa continues to connect industry leaders together in this space, helping them find the resources they need to be successful and compliant.
Now, she has turned all of this experience into one consulting business that supports all facets of the industry. Melissa has always taken pride in helping others discover the benefits of CBD products and educating them to help others. To her, it doesn’t matter whose team someone is on or where they are positioned in their company. She is open to helping cross- line partners succeed and in turn, helping everyone in the organization 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.
