Cynthia Villamizar: Founder of Cyntivee talks quitting Google, reeducating folks on CBD & Cannabis and building a business from scratch
This week I’m talking to Cynthia Villamizar, Founder of Cyntivee, an education platform that seeks to break down everything you thought you knew about cannabis and reintroduce it as a part of your wellness and fitness routine. Cyntivee is hoping to reeducate people on CBD and cannabis by addressing common misconceptions and by introducing the latest innovations via easy and fun tutorials and recipes. A former Fulbright Scholar and Googler, Cynthia also chronicles her new adventures as she works towards becoming a certified personal trainer, a fully-fledged cannabis expert, and the newest entrant in the nascent marijuana industry.
In our chat, Cyn and I dig into what it was like leaving her career at Google behind to focus on her passion for wellness & cannabis; How Cyntivee came to be and the experience of being a new entrepreneur in a nascent industry; How Cyn pushes herself to experiment with different platforms online and do what needs doing for her biz every day (even when she doesn’t feel like it); How one can start to integrate cannabis or cbd into their fitness; Moving from NYC to the Bay area and her big plans for Cyntivee; And so much more!
