PIT Stop and LIPS Trip Sydney Recap

Hello my Lovelies, I have much to report about all the exciting happenings in January! First, I would like to give a warm welcome to the hundreds of Distributors who have joined us so far this month during Free Sign-Ups. We are so honored that you chose to join us in business, and know that together we can achieve your goal, whether it’s as simple as getting a great discount on the products you love, or as ambitious as providing a stable financial legacy to leave to your children. If you know someone who would appreciate a new opportunity to create the life they’ve been dreaming of, and love anti-aging skincare and long-lasting cosmetics, don’t forget to tell them about the SeneGence free sign-up opportunity, only available in January!

PIT Stop Glam It Up, which took place earlier this month in Irvine, CA was a fantastic success. Over 40 attendees took home knowledge on everything from the basics of the SeneGence Compensation Plan, to specific application and product knowledge on all SenseCosmetics and SeneDerm SkinCare. One of the highlights from the event was crowning a new SeneGence Lead Makeup Artist for 2015, Queen Jeri Taylor-Swade, who led PIT Stop and expertly shared her vast cosmetic knowledge with us all!

Another exciting highlight was drawing a new Make It Mine winner, who will become Featured Distributor on senegence.com and in the Beauty Book, which is a marvelous prize! What a wonderful opportunity to market yourself and your business; winning a spot as Featured Distributor has huge potential to boost your sponsoring and sales numbers . This quarter, the winner was Princess Cathy Hoolihan! Look for her Featured Distributor interview piece to be feautred in the near future.

All of the trainers at PIT were fabulous. I have to say, our Certified SeneBlends Makeup Artists really know their stuff! They shared helpful tips and tricks about each product or application type that they personally use and practice on their Customers. It’s amazing how just when we think we know it all, we are proven wrong! Even our most experienced Distributors say that they never fail to learn something new at PIT Stop, and I agree- I’m still learning too! Here are our gorgeous PIT Stop trainers (L to R: Cathy Hoolihan, Tania Rios, Cathy Rice, Linda Kump, Jeri Taylor-Swade, Renee Stewart, Deb Sell, Jackie Bailey, Kitty Wiemelt and Sheila Young).

To cap off a fantastic PIT Stop event, we were treated to Hollywood makeup artist, Myke Michaels training on makeup applications with live models! Here’s Myke with Crown Princess Renee Stewart and Queen Jeri Taylor-Swade.

This was the best PIT Stop Glam It Up yet (and I know I say this all the time, but the truth is they just keep getting better every year!). If you are a Distributor, these are events that you just cannot miss. They offer so much knowledge and information every single time. I’m looking forward to seeing you all again for Seminar 2015, “Rise to Royalty!” PIT Stop 2015 group image

Now onto a recap of LIPS Trip 2015, which took place in sunny Sydney, Australia! What a fun and exciting trip it was; we had so many amazing adventures with both American and Australian SeneSisters. Here is a group photo of us at the gorgeous Sydney Harbour.

Imagine pure blue skies, clear waters, a warm summer breeze, and all the luxuries of a modern cosmopolitan city. That sums up this gorgeous city in a nut shell. The group also went on an exciting climbing excursion of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, a bold and daring adventure indeed!

The trip was also filled with plenty of relaxation, shopping, and gourmet dining too, of course. It was a pleasure getting to spend time with Ruby Crown Princess Lisa Johnson, Crown Princess Dawn Christian, and Royal Michelle Paulson and their families, as well as Australian Distributors Princess Kim Kirkby, Lady Illene Andallo, Countess Rhonda Renkert and their families. It truly was the trip of a lifetime!

Our next LIPS Trip will be taking place in the beautiful and ancient city of Rome, Italy! You can earn your way to this incredible destination through SeneGence- we want you to join us! When you earn a trip with us, you are treated like royalty and experience a first-class vacation, from beginning to end. Don’t miss living “la dolce vita” with us in Rome next year, start working towards LIPS Trip 2016 today!

Shoot for the Moon in 2015!

A very happy New Year to you! The start of a fresh calendar year gives us all the chance to begin anew with setting goals and making plans to reach them. What are your goals for 2015? Do you know what you need to do to achieve them? A good place to begin is by first asking yourself, “If there was nothing standing in my way, what would I want out of 2015?” The following quote is one of my favorites during this time of new beginnings, when what lies ahead can be as fulfilling as we choose:

“Shoot for the moon.  Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”  -Les Brown

Shoot_for_the_moon_by_livinganlie

While it is important to make small, organized steps in reaching your goals, it’s equally as important to challenge yourself and aim big when creating your lifetime goals; do not do yourself the disservice of underestimating your potential and all that you can achieve. Maybe you are currently a Maiden in the Royal Court, and you’d like to be Crown Princess by the end of the year. You can do it! It has been done by others before, why not you? Perhaps you’d like to be able to retire from your 9 to 5 job in the next 2 years, and become a SeneGence Distributor full-time, while still financially supporting your family. It is possible, and I see many Distributors achieving it every year, with planning and perseverance. Do things with purpose- if you are spending time doing something that does not aid in achieving your goal, then stop doing it. If you are surrounding yourself with people who hinder your success, surround yourself instead with those who raise you up.  Rid yourself of all obstacles, and get organized about your success. Here are a few things to keep in mind when organizing goal setting:

  • Once you have set your lifetime goals, set a five-year plan of smaller goals that you need to complete if you are to reach your lifetime plan.
  • Then create a one-year plan, and a one-month plan of progressively smaller goals that you need to reach at each level of your plan.
  • Then create a daily to-do list of things that you should do today to work towards your weekly and monthly goals.

After clearly writing down your goals and plotting out how to get there, stay accountable by sharing your goals with your family and your team. Being accountable helps keep us motivated and on the right track.

At SeneGence, our goal is to make sure you achieve your goals. Therefore, we thrive on giving you every opportunity to grow your business and succeed. That’s why during the entire month of January, we are offering FREE DISTRIBUTOR SIGN-UPS! What a wonderful opportunity to boost your business by sponsoring others into your SeneGence team, and help others realize goals of their own.

US_January 2015 Free Sign Ups

With a SeneGence career, you can represent products that really work to help make skin more beautiful, and keep it that way. You can set your own work hours, work towards your own goals, and be the boss. You can achieve your dreams of travel and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, while still being an attentive partner or parent. With SeneGence, it’s not only possible, but attainable. If you or someone you know would love an opportunity to achieve these things, join us for free today!

Here’s to a purposeful and prosperous 2015- choose to live life in love and abundance…then work for it!

The Holiday Balancing Act

Dear Distributors,

Love and Happy Holidays to you and your family! It’s the most wonderful time of the year, filled with joy, laughter, and beautiful family memories. But while the warmth of the season is undeniable, it’s easy to get caught up in the mayhem and stress of cooking, shopping, wrapping, traveling, and of course running our businesses. I know that at the Kante household, the holidays tend to be the most hectic time of year. Family is coming in and out of town, William has several school events and holiday pageants, and Ben and I are trying to keep up with it all, all while keeping the growth and success of SeneGence in mind. I find it helpful, and I think you will too, to take a moment out of each day ( it can be as little as 10 minutes) to relax and enjoy some quality time with your loved ones, or just yourself.

I like to sit down with a pot of tea, and reflect on the many ways I am blessed; my healthy family, wonderful friends, and all of you, my brilliant Distributors. Taking just a few minutes out of each day to reflect reminds us how lucky we are for the things that we have, and allows us to be a little more joyful through all the hustle and bustle. I also love witnessing the magic of the season through my son William’s eyes- our Elf JJ surprises him every morning!

Now on to business- be sure to take advantage of the many WOW-ing and booking opportunities December and January bring, as you are likely attending several holiday and New Year’s parties, family gatherings, and school or church functions. Wear bright LipSense stripes everywhere you go, and have an on-the-go tester kit with you at all times. Being prepared will pay off! You might be at a New Year’s party and spark up interest about the staying power of LipSense, or your gorgeous ShadowSense look. Everywhere you go is an opportunity to share SeneGence, a potential sale, and potential sponsoring opportunity. WOW-ing now will give you a head start as you kick off 2015 with new contact info, Customers, and Downline team members.

Let’s be productive this season in our businesses, but let’s also focus on working smart. Find a balance between working your business and social family time. With SeneGence, it’s often easy to combine the two- as in the example above. The flexibility of our career opportunity allows us to have it all. Enjoying family time doesn’t mean we have to put our businesses on hold, and vice versa, it means we need to be more organized with how we allocate our time. Focus on finding your balance and remember, the more you strive to set up your business this month, the more prosperous the coming year will be.

I am looking forward to seeing my Maidens and above next month at PIT Stop Glam it Up! If you haven’t done so already, go to your Back Office and register for the event- it’s not one to be missed.

Our Hearts Beat as One

It is with sadness that I learned one of the Direct Sales Industry’s long time members, lia sophia®, is closing its doors. From the lia sophia company website:

“We are so proud of building lia sophia over the past 28 years into an outstanding company that has empowered women, and whose jewelry has been a favorite of so many. However, given the challenging business environment, we made the painful decision to wind down lia sophia in the United States and Canada by December 31(…)”

My heart goes out to the Kiam Family and their committed lia sophia employees who I am sure daily served thousands and thousands of lia sophia Advisors and their families, helping them in immeasurable ways throughout the years. I think of the lives that were of benefit from this company‘s existence, from vendors who supplied the company with needed goods and services, to the last child born of their newest Advisor. I think of the bills that were paid, mortgages made possible, college degrees earned, irreplaceable memories experienced and communities enriched – all due to an amazing collection of committed souls who successfully supported one another throughout the years. I speak on behalf of the entire SeneGence Family, our Employees, Distributors, and extended community members when I say thank you for your service and commitment to our industry over the years.

To you, my beloved SeneGence Distributors: since this news has broken, your calls, e-mails, and texts have resonated sadness in our hearts for the #liasophia Advisors, especially as this news comes so close to Christmas. I admire your kind-heartedness, as we really are all in this together, aren’t we? Direct Sales is an industry with a big heart, and it’s beautiful that all of our hearts beat as one for an industry that has given us so many opportunities and blessings. Some of you may also feel some uncertainty about the future, but please know that SeneGence is strong.  The future of SeneGence has never been brighter or bigger. We are committed to our core values of family, stability and security, enrichment, and constant improvement of all facets of business.

Remember who we are as SeneGence Distributors:

Women making long lasting beauty possible

and what we represent:

Products and a career that really work.

Let’s keep it going by:

Choosing to live life in love and abundance … and then working for it.

Love, Joni

Counting Blessings

Happy Thanksgiving! Although the many blessings in my life are ever-present in my mind, during the Thanksgiving season, I especially take time to reflect inward on all of the blessings I have, and on all of the blessings we share together. 2014 has been another amazing year for my own family, and also for my broader SeneGence family. My husband Ben and I see our sons growing in love and wisdom day by day, while watching dreams come true around the world as SeneGence success stories are being written into the lives of thousands. I count my lucky stars daily that I am able to represent this wonderful company alongside each of you.  Here are a few reasons why:

Consistent Business Growth- SeneGence is growing every day, as women and men around the world discover that they can create a booming career by representing our products that really work. I can proudly say that both our sales and sponsoring numbers continue to increase significantly (we’re talking double digits!) over the same time last year. Once again, we are moving with strength and confidence into a new calendar year. The success of SeneGence as a company is a direct correlation to, and result of, YOUR success as well. The efforts that you have put into your businesses this year are tangible, congratulations! A healthily growing company is good news to all, as we can continue to funnel our success into growing and changing lives all over the world.

Products that Really Work and are Always Improving- I am proud to say that SeneGence continues to offer products that actually work the way we say they do- they are anti-aging, long-lasting, and good for your skin. However, I also take great pride in the fact that we are constantly improving our formulations, to ensure that they remain at the very top in terms of quality in the market place. One such example of this is our new and improved SeneSerum-C, which does so much more than moisturize with stabilized vitamin C. The new formula also protects from the damage of ‘urbanization’- pollution and free radicals that can wreak havoc on your skin. SeneGence will always remain committed to quality and the most advanced technologies known today, so that you are able to represent our products with confidence and pride.

International Growth and Achievements- As of this year, SeneGence brands are offered in 16 countries throughout a variety of regions worldwide, with more to come as people around the world hear about us and want to become a part of the SeneGence family. How exciting is it to know that our vision of a global business opportunity has come true? SeneGence Distributors have the chance to build a global business by sponsoring  internationally, helping others around the world to find beauty, confidence, independence, and happiness on so many levels.

Especially, YOU- words cannot express how very thankful I am for each and every one of you. To my Leaders, whom I was able to spend a great deal of quality time with last month at Leaders Conference, to the Distributors I have not yet had the privilege of meeting- I am so grateful that you have chosen SeneGence to be in your lives. Our SeneSisterhood bond is one of the most unique and special things that I have been able to experience in my lifetime. Thank you for joining me on this journey to success.

This month, be sure you are filling your booking calendars for the holidays, and into the 2015 year. This is the most lucrative time of year to work your business, with holiday gift-giving and entertaining! Plan now, and ride the wave of success as you benefit through the end of the year and into next. I wish a bounty of blessings and happiness to you and your families for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Until next time my Lovelies, choose to live life in love and abundance…then work for it!

Love and Leadership

Hello my Lovelies! Earlier this month, SeneGence Leaders from around the country joined together in Dallas, Texas, for what was one of the best Leaders Conference to date! Let me share with you a few of the main takeaways from all the information and knowledge we acquired while there:

  • DISC Discoveries: From Dr. JJ Meier, we learned how to assess our DISC (stands for Dominance, Inducement, Submission, Compliance) profiles and use them to help our own leadership skills grow, and also to manage our teams and support each individual in our downlines. By recognizing the different ways in which each of our team members work, we can better help them succeed in their business, ultimately growing the success of our own SeneGence business.

DSCN3916

  • Public Speaking Skills: From DSWA Trainer Teri Werner, one important lesson we learned was that we need to focus on the momentum of progress that we achieve, rather than getting stuck on the fact that we aren’t perfect. When speaking to an audience, we must remember that they are present by their choosing to hear what we have to say, and are not judging us on the mistakes that we think we are making. In other words, we need to get out of our own heads, and enjoy ourselves when sharing information with others. This is a very helpful thought to keep in mind for those nervous about leading SeneGence Demos; your Demo Guests are excited to be there and hear what you have to say about long-lasting SenseCosmetics and anti-aging SeneDerm SkinCare. They are not going to judge you if you forget to mention an ingredient, or pronounce something wrong. Just be present and be excited, and they will be too. As the saying goes, fall in love with the products, and then sell that love!

DSCN4051

  • Steps to Success: From several Crown Princesses and Princesses, we learned about many different habits of success that great Leaders have, from building team spirit to being consistent about focusing on goals. One of the presentations that left a lasting impression was Queen Jeri Taylor-Swade’s, on “10 SeneSteps to Success.” In her presentation, Jeri outlined 10 concrete steps that you can take to ensure your business success, and to make sure that you are always growing and learning, never staying stagnant in your business. Jeri recently presented these SeneSteps on a Happy Hour Webinar, and you can watch the recording in your Back Office presentations. Fantastic information and habits to implement if you have goals to achieve (and we all do)!

DSCN4073

  • SeneGence’s Commitment to Growth and Improvement: Along with all of the business tools and advice that Leaders received, I believe they also came home with the knowledge that everyone at SeneGence is committed to their success, by consistently improving upon the systems and technologies we already have in place. An example of our pledge to improvement is our newly launched SeneSerum-C. This product has been completely reformulated to perform even more effectively than the original SeneSerum-C. Not only does it supply your skin with stabilized Vitamin C, but now it protects your skin from damage caused by “urbanization,” aka pollution and free radicals. The new SeneSerum-C is a game changer in the skincare market, and I am positive it will become a best seller as you witness how dramatically it will improve not only the look and feel, but also the health of your skin.

  • Our Unique SeneSisterhood: with all of the knowledge and information that was packed into our minds during Leaders Conference, we were reminded once again about how strong our friendship and bond with one another is. The support system that has become the SeneSisterhood is powerful; new Distributors consistently tell me that they automatically feel welcomed with love into our company, because of how supportive both our sales force and corporate team are. Our culture is one that continues to foster positivity and goodwill towards one another. Watching all of my Leaders during the event, happy to help each other out and showing love and support for one another, was very moving. I am so proud to know that SeneGence Distributors have good hearts and are there for one another. I truly love each and every one of them!
