We had the good fortune of connecting with Tamara Anderson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tamara, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
“No” just means not right now. To me that means to keep pursuing your goal and just because this person is interested doesnt indicate that your goal or mission isnt of value to someone else.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Sugar and Spyked has been put on hold due to covid, so are focus has been on Culinary and Cannabis the interactive cannabis educational event hosting company. Are main focus is providing education on all the variety of ways which cannabis can be used outside of smoke by beautiful comfortable cannabis events. Since the pandemic we have transitioned to DIY subscription boxes and I am thrilled about this because now we can reach a broader audeince since the education can provided anywhere as the boxes only contain cbd/hemp.products. It has not been easy with either of my business they were very innovative at the time of invention as they were things know one was doing at the time. So I have had a lot of trail an error because there was no one to guide me. Keeping a high end style helps us break down walls, we set are brand aprt by providing some the beautiful atmosphere and visual. There is a lot of learned along the way, one of the most important is collect date like emails and phone number, keep your word to bother consumer and brands as well as dont give up. Education is the key to freedom as knowledge is key.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
You mean before Covid????? We would definitely go have lunch or dinner at the OG Cannabis cafe since it’s the first if it’s kind, take a ride in the cannabis tour bus, see a live concert at one of the smaller venues, go wine tasting, ride the coast on PCH, visit a beach in SD, OC and LA there all a little different, go visit some cannabis grows in Palm Springs and definitely attend some Hollywood type events to see what celebrities when can run shoulders with.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Oh wow, so Ms. Queenie Johnson who was one of my first life coaches and mentor. She taught me how to pay attention to my customer wants and needs but always staying true to self.
