Exploring Life & Business with Kayla-Teresa Johnson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kayla-Teresa Johnson. 

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I started modeling at the age of 13, that’s when I knew that if I was going to be a part of the modeling industry at all, it would be in a position of leadership. I ran into TSOD (TopShelfOrDie) in 2018, and I have been working with them ever since. I started out as a standard model, and now I’m an executive in a multifaceted company. I am head of the modeling department. Two years ago, as TSOD began diving more into the cannabis industry, I began to dive more into botany. Since then, I’ve been the proud owner of Traveler’s Tavern! We sell tea, yoni steams, and smoke blends. My teas and remedies are specially crafted for certain ailments and specific people, we use the natural healing power and properties of the plants to make your lives a lot easier! We hope to expand our store variety very soon, but baby steps! 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I’m an extremely spiritual person, and because of that, I believe that my road was never meant to be easy. I chose the path less traveled and it proves to me every day why it’s made all the difference. You can’t be the one breaking the generational curse and building generational wealth without healing generational trauma. That’s extremely heavy energy, I’ve been abused, raped, beaten, and nearly broken. But as bad and dull as someone can be, is as good and as bright as they can shine. You can’t make diamonds and pearls without a shitload of pressure. 

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
So, my business started as and small passion for plants and a $25 mortar & pestle. I have always loved plants since I was a little girl playing in my daddy’s garden, I always thought it was because I was a Taurus born on Earth Day. So, it fits. The more research that I did on tea, and plants made me realize that plants are like little puzzles. If you can find the right combination of plants or pieces, you can make a beautiful picture. Or whatever picture that you want. The biggest thing that you should know about plants is that every plant can do something to you, all weeds and household plants have properties. And you can use these properties for your own benefit. I specialize in creating your own custom-made; tea, yoni steams, and smoke blends, that work right for you. Everything that I make is handmade, organic, and if it isn’t grown by my own hands it’s outsourced by three of the most highly credited herb company in America. I’m most proud of my brand as a whole, the fact that it’s a functioning thriving company is more proof that I can do anything.
