First Friday Breakfast Club

February 3rd Meeting, 7:00 a.m.

On behalf of Byron Huff, FFBC President:

Our guest speaker on Friday, February 3, 2023 starting at 7:00 a.m. will be Rick Wagaman, Owner and Chief Executive Officer of HB CBD in West Des Moines.  Rick will join us live in the Hoyt Sherman art gallery.  The entire FFBC Board of Directors is excited to welcome Mr. Wagaman and see each of you in-person.


About Our Speaker

When the family decided to embark on this CBD journey in the summer of 2020, during the COVID Pandemic, Rick was all in!  Understanding the CBD industry was in its infancy, he was immediately compelled to become an educated professional on the subject.  Rick’s passion for helping people became his driving force as he completed the Institute of Certified CBD Consultants education program.  His 25-year sales and marketing career prepared him for this new and exciting role.  Rick has a BA in Business Administration and a minor in Marketing from the University of Northern Iowa.  Currently, Rick is enrolled in a master’s degree program from the University of Maryland-Baltimore School of Pharmacy and is Iowa’s first student to be enrolled in this program.  He’ll graduate in 2024 with an M.S. degree in Medical Cannabis Science & Therapeutics.

Besides serving as Chief CBD Guru, he also serves as Chief Husband and Dad.  He’s a licensed foster parent, former volunteer fire fighter, Chamber of Commerce representative, and lives to volunteer for a variety of organizations.  He’s also a dedicated Denver Bronco’s fan.  If you can’t find him at the store, there is a good chance you’ll find him on the bike trail.

NOTE:  This meeting will also be broadcast at no cost via Zoom for those who can't attend in-person.
