Hello everyone! My family is trying to create a start up business selling weed paraphernalia. We are really excited about building our business, but keep running into huge hurdles that are really setting us back. Our newest one is that that our credit card processor we're trying to use for our online store will not support us. They're saying they will not work with us unless our social medias and website are completely clean of words, hashtags, and pictures that are related to, include, or mention weed, cannabis, or CBD in any way. This is really killing us because we do not have a store front, and are not in many independent stores yet. Plus, it's almost impossible to advertise traditionally so we rely on our social medias to spread brand awareness. We're new to the industry so if anybody has any advice on how to work with this system, or if there is a different payment processor other people use that is cannabis-friendly please let me know! Also, if anyone can shed some light on the advertising side, it would be greatly appreciated too!

Hi, my name is Janina (Jan) Robbins. I am looking for clients to help jump start my travel business! A little bit about me: I am a mother to a vivacious 10 y.o. who is gifted with a wonderful singing voice and a wife to a wonderful hubby who unfortunately has MS. As a result, I am trying very hard to supplement my income and recently launched a business as a travel consultant. My goal is to help book individual, group and corporate travel to most destinations. My specific niche is to assist people with getting GREAT travel deals and attend exclusive 420 venues, concerts, festivals, conferences and stay at 420 friendly hotels or B & B’s. I recently visited Vegas and truly enjoyed my 420 ventures & opportunities there! In the past, I worked for the Sheraton, Seattle Convention Bureau and booked corporate travel for executives. I have been a Brand Ambassador for a cannabis manufacturing company where I demonstrated several different products in numerous dispensaries. I also helped a company in NY launch their new coconut water-based sports drink. I lived in several states such as New York; traveled to California, Florida, Montana, Wyoming - more specifically Palm Springs, Las Vegas, and Sun Valley, Idaho where I learned how to ski (a black person skiing, that was HUGE for me – LOL). I attended last year’s Seattle Cannacon and this year’s Seattle Hempfest where I found out that there are currently nine different festivals and one held internationally in Jamaica, which I hope to go to next year in October (I can still book folks there for this year’s upcoming festival). I also hope to go to Costa Rica & back again to Panama in 2020 and Greece in 2021 (save up now for any or all of those group trips ). My other goal is to hopefully start a Tokeativity chapter in the Olympia area. I just submitted the form! Sorry I missed the Seattle launch. I was so wishing to be there; looks like you all had a nice time! This Saturday, Sept. 22nd at 2:30-4:20 pm, I will be hosting my first 420 Travel & Adventure Meetup group and hope to host a few Saturdays Meetups (check the Meetup Schedule for upcoming dates). If you are close to the area, I would really enjoy meeting you! I will definitely refer women to this website. Looking forward to seeing you down the road! P.S. - If you are looking for a side hustle, part-time job or new biz venture, hit me up! My master’s thesis was on telework/telecommute and I always had the motto of wanting to work anyplace, anywhere and anytime and becoming a travel consultant is now allowing me to do so. Regardless of where you live, I can help you to also become a travel consultant! I'm not sure if I can post my travel websites here or not. If so, I will post it once I get permission. If not, then please email me via this website. All my best!
