The Hustle

Name: Michelle Tolan (Your CBD Store)

Posted By Megan Holmes

Michelle Tolan discovered the power of CBD unexpectedly, through her four-legged friend. Working at Your CBD Store in Bradenton while building up her life coaching client base, Tolan was seeing customers with incredible testimonials. But what really sold her was how much it changed the game for her dog. That's when Tolan decided to open her very own Your CBD Store in St. Pete's Historic Uptown neighborhood.

What do you do?  

I own and operate Your CBD Store in the heart of Historic Uptown. I bring the highest quality CBD products, education and empathy to my community.

Why do you do it?

As a life coach, I love to help people. I realized that it’s impossible to live your best life when you don’t feel your best. I wanted to help people at the base level.

What was your Catalyst? (How did you get started?)

As I built my coaching clientele I started working at the very first Your CBD Store in Bradenton, and I was amazed at the customers testimonials. Even my dog was feeling better. I knew this was my calling and wanted to bring this business into my hometown of St. Pete, so I opened my store. Really it was my dog. There is no way she could be pretending!

What’s a common misconception or unknown aspect of what you do?

That CBD gets you high or you need a medical marijuana card to get it. That it comes from hemp and not marijuana.

What’s the most challenging part of your Hustle?

Honestly, the parking for my store and keeping a good, solid staff.

What’s the most valuable piece of business advice/insight that’s helped you?

If you start your own business it has to be something you are passionate about. Because you will be talking about it all the time. You will live and breathe it – so you better love it!

What are your plans for your hustle?

Glad you asked! We currently just opened a spa and a studio into the mix. CBD massage and facials are offered in our spa, and workshops, events and classes such as yoga, sound healing and a book club will be offered in Your Studio soon!
