"I'm incredibly humbled to receive this sort of recognition. It's gratifying to know that I'm not alone in my efforts to improve the industry. It just shows that hard work and a commitment to standing up for the truth pays off," states Kevin Thompson. Since late 2006, Thompson has been a practicing attorney in the Network Marketing space.
What put Thompson on the map for 2014 was his candid analysis and insightful breakdown of Avon's open letter to the Direct Selling Association's members about Avon's decision to leave the DSA. In his analysis, Thompson focused his attention on the industry's need for higher standards and quality control measures to improve, instead of flatlining in the face of "self-deception" and ambiguity.
"I'm happy to play a small part in Kannaway's success. When I learned about their unique and proprietary products, I was fascinated about the potential of the hemp lifestyle space. There's a tremendous amount of misinformation in the marketplace about their product, and Kannaway is perfectly suited to telling the story. They have a remarkable opportunity to grow and drive change," Thompson continued. Like Thompson, Kannaway is motivated to voice the truth and propel an industry forward.
Kannaway's mission is to educate the masses on industrial hemp's practical applications in the everyday lives of consumers. Kannaway's Brand Ambassadors, or the "Kannaway Nation", feel that it is their patriotic duty to return the versatile hemp plan to the everyday lives of consumers.
