After almost being forced to give up his dream, he persisted through and trusted in himself and the universe to help him achieve his goal. He now spends his time creating some of the most beautiful paintings I’ve ever seen and spreading light day to day as he moves about the world. So grateful to have gotten to do this interview as Jan’s been an inspiration to me for many years. He’s one of those guys that brightens a room simply by being in it.

Andy’s been a good friend of mine for a couple years now and he’s been an inspiration since I first met him. He’s one of those guys I like to call a go-giver (like a go-getter, but focussed on giving rather than getting).   He’s the co-owner of multiple businesses with his brother Mike (who I interviewed back in episode 06), as well as a father to a beautiful little girl, partner to a beautiful woman, and the co-leader of our squad in the Samurai Brotherhood.

In the interview, we dig into how Lester got introduced to CBD initially, how it helped him with diabetes, skin cancer, and anxiety. He shares how through using CBD, he was able to get off all of the many pharmaceuticals he was on, and how doing so gave him his relationship with his son back. This one may pull on a couple heart strings, as Lester has had an emotional rollercoaster of a ride and is generous enough to share some of it with us in this interview. This interview was informative as well, with lots of awesome recommendations for dosage and ways to use CBD. I actually learned a lot myself, and I work in the space myself, so I’m sure you’ll learn lots as well. Thanks again, and I hope you enjoy this interview with Lester Phillips!
