Amandine on the Importance of Finding your People 

We are the sum of the five people we spend the most time with, and when you’re running a conscious business, you want to be particularly intentional about who you’re spending time with. Not only that but the challenges of the entrepreneurial journey mean that you need people who will be able to understand and support you as you grow into a business owner.

Aline de Angelis on the legislation surrounding coffeeshops in Amsterdam

Despite being world-renowned for its coffee shops, Amsterdam does not have a very friendly policy towards the local industry. It’s a world of ever-changing regulations, restrictions and stigma – but one coffee shop owner definitely still feels it’s worth it!

Aline co-owns one of the only organic coffeeshops in Amsterdam, La Tertulia, with her mother. Women-owned, and women-run, La Tertulia is unlike any other coffee shop in the city. The feminine vibe and high-quality organic bud will transport you. It’s possibly the only coffeeshop you could see yourself on a date in, surrounded by greenery and crystals – it’s a must-see if you are ever in Amsterdam.

Jess Gelling on Management and Leadership in the Cannabis Industry 

With an explosive growth curve over the last year that has resulted in the hiring of an affiliate manager to serve the 270 affiliate members of award-winning CBD brand Hannabis, the company has nonetheless managed to retain its innovative approach to affiliate marketing.

Jess Gelling is the Affiliate Manager of award-winning UK CBD brand Hannabis. Her job is to help people get their CBD biz up and running as well as running her own. She is a huge believer in the power of cannabis and wants to spread the word as far and wide as it will go. She is the creator and host for a new upcoming podcast The UK Potcast. Her ultimate goal would be to turn many many sceptics into believers and see this country towards decriminalisation.
