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.


  • 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!


  • 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)!


  • 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!

How to Set (and Reach!) Your Goals

“A goal properly set is halfway reached.” Wise words spoken by one of our nation’s great leaders, Abraham Lincoln, and they still ring true today. Setting your goals is the first step that you need to take in order to reach them, and sometimes the most difficult part is figuring out what we really want, and more importantly- how to get there. Really assessing your needs and the needs of your family, along with having a plan on how you will go about reaching your goal- is crucial.


Why am I choosing October to speak to you about goal setting? Well, for starters, SeneGence welcomed over 1,200 new Distributors in September during Free Sign ups, and we are so excited for them to begin their journey to success! Secondly, we are in the very beginning of autumn here in the United States, and it is an excellent time to either set or reevaluate our goals, because 2014 will soon be coming to a close. I love this time of year, when the leaves change to gold and red, and the weather becomes a little crisper- it puts a pep in my step! October is the time to resolve to finish out your 2014 year strong, and begin to set yourself up for great success in 2015.

So, the first step for reaching a goal is to clearly understand what that goal is- whether it includes earnings (Downline commissions and sales income), a new car (the Ford or Cadillac SeneCar), travel (LIPS or SeneStar trips) or more free time to spend with your family. All of these you can achieve through SeneGence-these goals are yours for the taking. To achieve these benefits and rewards, ask yourself “In what areas do I want to improve?” Perhaps the answers lie in simple money-making activities such as:

  1. Booking- demos throughout the week (rule: schedule 5 hold 3)
  2. Holding Demos- showcase the product (use the Beauty Book Distributor and Glamour Demo Guides)
  3. Directing- by booking Demo Guests as future Hostesses of their own Demo and new Distributor Demos as their own launches and trainings

Then ask yourself, “What actions can I take to make these improvements and maximize my return?” Begin with those that are at your fingertips:

  • Attend SeneU at the corporate office or take SeneU Online, log onto the webinar trainings every Tuesday and Thursday, attend your local team trainings, attend PIT Stop Glam it Up in January and Seminar 2014 in April
  • Explore your Back Office- it is filled with training and informational resources for you
  • Get on Facebook and join your team’s training Group, and “like” SeneGence International for daily tips and updates

“Am I making progress towards my long-term, yearly goals?” Long-term must be measured in short term (monthly) increments. Use the Weekly Summary Sheet found in the Back Office to stay directed and on track. Commit your report weekly to your upline- they care about your success.

Finally ask, “How should I alter, adjust and fine tune my course?” It’s been said that a goal not written is simply a wish. So outline a professional path, on paper. Use the Downline Goal Setting Sheet in the Back Office to make sure you write down your goals and are always keeping your progress in mind.

Reaching goals takes forethought, agreements, commitments, understanding, and execution. But when you do reach your goals, you will be enriching your life and the lives of those surrounding you. It’s all worth it in the end, when you can look at what you’ve accomplished, whether for yourself or for your family, and say “I did it!”

Spend some time this month to define your goals for 2014 and share your dreams with those close to you, and remember my Lovelies, always choose to live life in love and abundance…then work for it!

I am excited to spend time with my Leaders this weekend at Leaders Conference 2014! Keep an eye out for a blog post to follow, recounting all of the wonderful things we learned and did.

5 Reasons Why You Should Join SeneGence Free This Month

You may have heard that this September, SeneGence is welcoming New Distributors at no cost. That’s right- zero, zilch, nothing from you required to sign up as a Distributor and become the owner of your own business! I can’t express in words how big of an opportunity this is. The chance to run your own business and represent products that really work, products that change the way you look and feel about yourself, that even have the potential to change the way you live your life- all for free! Not to mention being supported by SeneGence in all that you do for your business, every step of the way, and benefiting from one of the most generous compensation plans in the direct sales industry…it’s an opportunity that you can’t miss!

free sign up sept

Everyone at SeneGence Corporate has been working extremely hard all year to be able to bring this incredible opportunity to you. Believe me, the free sign-up opportunity is not something that we decide lightly upon- it takes months of planning and preparation in order to make it possible. We are so glad that we can extend this wonderful offer to anyone who would like to take advantage of it!

Here are but a few reasons to join:

  1. Our Career really works. It does, and we have thousands of Distributors who can testify to such every single day. With our compensation plan, there is no glass ceiling- in other words, there is no limitation placed on you to how much you can earn. The sky is the limit.
  2. Our products are unmatched. Our SenseCosmetics and SeneDerm SkinCare products are made with the finest quality natural ingredients, blended with the most advanced color and anti-aging technology available today. They work exactly how we say they do, and we guarantee it 100%, or your money back. When you become a Distributor, you will be able to order all products at a significant 20-55% discount.
  3. Our company culture is unlike any other. Here at SeneGence, we pride ourselves in having a culture, both at the corporate office and in our Distributor communities, that is uplifting, caring, and nurturing. We are not interested in competition, we simply want to see each other succeed and achieve goals. You will become part of this wonderful culture, and be supported in business when you join us.
  4. We are devoted to progress. SeneGence is constantly innovating and discovering new skincare and cosmetic technologies and ingredients to ensure our products remain ten steps ahead of anything else you will find in the market. With an in-house chemist and laboratory, the corporate team and myself are able to work closely with our chemist to create new products.
  5. SeneGence is experiencing tremendous growth. In our Distributor force, international expansion, product line, and more, we are growing every single day. It would be my pleasure to welcome you to join us on this fabulous ride to the top!

If you, or someone you know, would like to become a part of SeneGence and experience these and so many more benefits and positive aspects of our great career, please tell them about the free sign-up opportunity. It is available from September 1st-30th, and is a $50 value (but is really priceless, because who else can say they purchased a business for just $50??). Even if they only want to join to get a significant discount on their products, it’s an opportunity impossible to pass up! And, once they experience the products and see how much positive attention they are receiving when wearing and using them, they will realize how easy it is to turn into a lucrative business.

I am so looking forward to seeing all of my Royal in Waiting and above leaders next month for Leaders Conference 2014 in Dallas, Texas. If you have not registered yet, do it today! This event is vital if you are serious about becoming a successful Leader and growing your business, which leads to achieving your goals!

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

We are Learning, Growing and Expanding!

Hello my Lovelies! I am so excited to tell you what I’ve been up to these past few weeks- great things are happening at SeneGence! Earlier this month the SeneGence corporate Marketing team put on the twice annual training event, PIT Stop, which stands for “Princess in Training.” This PIT Stop event was focused on marketing and business training, with an emphasis on learning how to brand yourself. SeneGence leading Distributors from all around the country came together to expand their business and management skills, learn how to properly brand themselves and their businesses, and of course make wonderful memories and grow in their SeneSister bonds.


Attendees were treated to wonderful training by branding expert, Meryl Holland. Along with Meryl’s coaching and training, they had an entire day to focus inwardly on themselves- what makes them great, what their strengths are, how they define themselves and also how others see them. It was so interesting to wander from table to table and see how many different types of leaders were in the room. Everyone’s “brand essence,” the few words that they eventually created to define themselves, was so unique and special. One of the exercises they did to discover their brand essence was to create “me” boards. Now, I’m sure you’ve heard of, maybe even completed, a vision board, but have you ever done a Me board? They searched through magazines and clipped out phrases, words, and pictures to crate beautiful boards that encapsulated them, at their core.               



The purpose of discovering your personal brand is so that you can properly and correctly market yourself and your business. After all, along with promoting products and a career that really works, aren’t you also promoting the wonderful personal service someone might receive from YOU, and the incredible opportunity to join YOUR team in business? Having a great sense of who you are, and then receiving the business tools necessary to market that is vital to your success.

We gave attendees more success tools by also training them on social media and public relations, leadership and management, and tips from our Crown Princesses: Jeri Taylor-Swade, Leanne Avant, Sheila Young and Lisa Johnson. It was a wonderful PIT Stop, definitely a game-changer in the way our leaders will begin to think about business and marketing. All the feedback has been positive, I am even receiving several “Best PIT Stop Ever!” testimonials!


I hope that you will join us at our next PIT Stop event in January 2015, which will be focused on glamour training. These twice annual events are not to be missed! Attend PIT Stop and you will immediately see how it benefits your business, and continues to do so as you implement the information you learn.

Now on to SeneGence expansion! We had a very special guest attend PIT Stop with us, Michelle McPhie, who is the new Director of Distributor Development for SeneGence Canada! Michelle and I, along with the entire SeneGence team are so excited to expand and grow SeneGence in Canada, where we have a loyal base of Distributors who we are working to develop, support, and grow. Michelle is passionate about our products and career opportunity, and is a valued asset to SeneGence. Here is from L to R: Madison-Lisa Johnson’s daughter, Lisa, Michelle, and Kathy Freeland having a great time at PIT.


If you know anyone in Canada, be sure to tell them about SeneGence’s career that really works. Did you know that you can sponsor people around the world, wherever SeneGence products are offered? If you have a family member or friend in Canada, for example, you can sponsor them into SeneGence and they will become part of your team- and you will be an international leader! They will have the support of Michelle as they grow and develop in their business.
I am thrilled how SeneGence continues to grow and grace the faces of women worldwide. Did you know that SeneGence is offered in 16 regions worldwide- with more coming soon?
1. United States
2. Australia
3. Canada
4. England (UK)
5. Northern Ireland (UK)
6. Scotland (UK)
7. Wales (UK)
8. Switzerland
9. Italy
10. Poland

I am pleased to announce the newest addition to this SeneGence World Map: Malta, a beautiful island in the Mediterranean Sea, off the coast of Sicily!

The opportunity to be an international sponsor is just another reason why a SeneGence career is so unique, along with a compensation plan with no breakage, and a support system unlike any other. If you or someone you know would be interested in joining our rapidly growing, brilliant force of INTERNATIONAL Distributors, the SeneGence family would love to welcome you!

SeneStar Fun in Puerto Rico!

Hello my Lovelies, I am so excited to tell you all about the SeneStar trip to Puerto Rico that took place this month! Each SeneGence trip just gets better and better…Ben and I were accompanied by 25 guests to the “Isla del Incanto,” Puerto Rico.

Guests included  (from left to right) Maiden Carol Clifton, Lady Karole Lewis, Sapphire Crown Princess Sheila Young, me, Queen Jeri Taylor-Swade, Ruby Crown Princess Lisa Johnson, Crown Princess Dawn Christian, and Princess Cathy Hoolihan.  We stayed at the exotic and beautiful Waldorf Astoria El Conquistador Resort.


We began the wonderful Puerto Rican adventure by boating over for a day trip to the El Conquistador Resort’s private island, Palomino Island. There, we enjoyed the gorgeous tropical waters, sunshine, and had a delicious lunch. It was absolute paradise, as we lounged on the white sand beaches, snorkeled from one island to the next, went on a treasure hunt, and enjoyed delightful tropical spirits in this pristine setting of nature.



The next day we toured Old San Juan and enjoyed lunch and shopping together.  A lavish Puerto Rican lunch was enjoyed at El Convento; a long ago convent turned hotel once owned and decorated by Gloria Vanderbilt. Needless to say every square inch reflected tasteful old world elegance.


 The historic part of town is beautiful, with multi-colored pastel building facades, cobblestone streets, and colonial architecture.





It was a treat to explore a part of history and as well, we took a tour of the old San Juan Fort, Castillo de San Cristobal. This national historic site was built by the Spanish hundreds of years ago to protect the city, but now offers incredible sprawling views of the island and the Caribbean Sea. The group enjoyed the perfect weather and amazing island views as we soaked up some history.



Another highlight of the trip was touring the Bacardi Rum factory. Rum is one of Puerto Rico’s biggest exports, and for a reason! We were able to taste some of the finest rum in the world as we learned how they make it. It was a fun and educational experience.



 There was plenty of time to relax too in between outings!  The following day was spent golfing and luxuriating at the resort’s beautiful spa, having some girl time.



You’ll find every true SeneGence leader never loses sight of their goals, and does the work required in order to reach them! I was impressed (but not surprised) that the SeneStars, despite being on vacation, were constantly thinking about improving their businesses and helping others reach their dreams In Puerto Rico.



While enjoying the scenery and each other’s company in our poolside cabanas, we had fantastic discussions about goals, year planning, and team management.



Another day was spent hiking through the rain forest and stopping for a refreshing (and daring ) dip in the river and waterfalls.




The SeneStar Trip to Puerto Rico was the best trip yet! Everyone had a great time not only enjoying this beautiful and unique island, but making wonderful SeneGence memories together, discussing the day’s activities during group dinners and evening entertainments each evening.






I know that each and every SeneGence Distributor can earn the SeneStar trip if they make it a goal to be there! SeneStar 2015 will take place on another tropical paradise…Hawaii! Take advantage of these rewards that SeneGence offers you for your hard work, and start planning to join me on the big island next year. Surprise your partner, your family, or a friend with a luxurious vacation of a lifetime; but most importantly, surprise YOURSELF and do it for YOU! I know you can!

International SeneSuccess!


Hello my Lovelies! So much has happened since my last post, and I’m excited to fill you in on all of it! Last month, Ben and I set out on a “SeneTour,” visiting two of our partner countries, Australia and Indonesia, and training and supporting at their annual Seminars, spending time with the country leaders and Distributors. I was so deeply impressed by the growing sales force in each country, and am confident that these brilliant and motivated Distributors will continue to lead SeneGence on an international level and help others to discover this wonderful career and our products that really work!

SeneGence Australia held their Seminar, “Here We Grow” in Queensland. It was a pleasure to meet many new faces and reconnect with others. Here I am, with several of the lovely attendees.


It was also exciting to recognize those Distributors who, through goal setting and following through by working their plans, reached their goals and got on-stage, where they received beautiful jewelry and Royal sashes. Here I am with new Royal, Rhonda Renkert.

rhonda renkert And, along with all of the new products that were launched in Australia, (the wonderful SeneDerm Detoxifying Mask, MakeSense CC Tinted Moisturizer, new Fooops Remover and more!) I was present for the launch of the SeneCar ManaGence program in Australia! This is so exciting, as AU Distributors now have the opportunity to work towards a beautiful, brand new SeneBlue Audi! Here are the Distributors with the gorgeous car, many of which I KNOW will be driving it down the road very soon.


After a successful week in Australia, Ben and I were off to Indonesia to join their annual Seminar, held in the capital city, Jakarta. Once again we enjoyed being surrounded by brilliant, motivated and incredibly hospitable men and women who are fulfilling their goals and dreams through SeneGence. Here we are at a gorgeous dinner to honor the top Distributors.


It was exciting to honor and crown the very first members of the SeneGence Indonesia Royal Court. It fills my heart with so much pride and immense joy to see SeneGence touching lives all over the world, as people create and build their own success as business owners.


I truly believe that we have the most talented, intelligent, and savvy Distributors in the Direct Sales industry, and am so proud to be working alongside to share SeneGence with the world.

Until next time my Lovelies, continue to have a successful and fruitful month. Don’t lose sight of your goals that you set for yourselves at the beginning of the Seminar year. Now, I am enjoying the beauty of Puerto Rico with the SeneStar Trip qualifiers, be on the look-out for a blog post about our trip soon!

ALWAYS, choose to live life in love and abundance…then work for it!

Seminar BeDazzled a Success!


Hello my Lovelies! I can’t wait to share all of the wonderful things our Seminar attendees learned and what fun they had together celebrating their SeneSuccess. Seminar BeDazzled took place at the grand Rio All-Suites Hotel in Las Vegas this year, and let me assure you, we celebrated in dazzling Vegas style! After the Crown Princess Dominion Receptions and Awards on Thursday night, Seminar opened  with professional Vegas show girls in gorgeous, glittering white and SeneBlue outfits (These are costumes?) It seemed to be the best ‘Vegas’ way to begin the event with a bang….until I had to stand side-by-side with them on stage!  :)


Friday’s Seminar was jam-packed with on-stage recognition to celebrate our new Royal Rank promotions from the past Seminar year, from Maiden all the way up to Crown Princess. My heart is filled with so much pride and admiration for each of the women who achieved a new Royal Rank. It takes focus and work to achieve each title, which is why we love to shower members of the Royal Court with jewelry, awards, keepsakes, and love.  One of the many highlights from Friday was crowning new Crown Princess, Dawn Christian. I am so proud of her for setting a goal and working her plan step-by-step, month-by-month to reach it!


More great highlights include awarding Royal Ana Figueredo Stuart the title of Annual Ms. SeneSynergy and honoring new Ruby (2 million within the Seminar Year) Crown Princess Lisa Johnson and her Bayou Beauties as number one in Group Sales Volume within the SeneGence Inner Circle GSV Court. Recognized Distributors were certainly awarded royally with Royal Jewels to suit!

Image DSC_4247Our Keynote speaker on Friday was DSWA President and Co-Founder, Grace Keohohou. She was absolutely inspiring to listen to and spoke specifically to attendees about how they can improve and grow in their SeneGence businesses through communication, coaching, and influencing. Grace also joined the upper Ranks on Sunday for Advanced Leadership training in the Break-Out sessions. Here is Grace (R) with Crown Princess Leanne Avant.


We were also treated with a moving presentation by Countess Leta Greene, who delivered a touching and inspiring speech on self-confidence and celebrating your inner and outer beauty or ‘hottness’. She captured the attention of every single Distributor in the audience with her presentation and drove home the message of loving yourself and believing that you can achieve all of your dreams. Thank you for a moving speech, Leta.


On Friday night, we celebrated in dazzling Las Vegas style for the Annual Make Sense Banquet and Awards. Guests came dressed in glittering gowns, enjoyed entertainment by the “King”, Elvis.


They enjoyed a delicious meal while Inner Circle Courts titles such as #1 Sponsor’s Court (Crown Princess Dawn Christian) and #1 Personal Sales Volume Court ( Lady Karol Lewis) were awarded.



DSC_4876Another highlight of the night was awarding a generous check on behalf of The Make Sense Foundation to the Walter Hoving Home. This home’s mission is to help rebuild the lives of women who have been shattered by drugs, prostitution, and abuse. We were all honored to hear the amazing story of one young woman whose life was saved by the Walter Hoving Home, and who now has a bright future for her and her child.


I am so proud and thankful that SeneGence gives our Distributors the opportunity to do good through The Make Sense Foundation. The time, donations, and love that our Distributors give make a huge difference in the lives of those in need of a helping hand.

Saturday was Break-Out training day, in which there were three separate training rooms for Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced level Distributors. Taught by myself, our VP of Distributor Development Leslie Boyd-Bradley, Crown Princess Dawn Christian, Ruby Crown Princess Lisa Johnson, and Queen Jeri Taylor-Swade, we each took turns circulating the rooms and training specifically to the level of Distributor in each room. Distributors received training designed specifically for their business level, ensuring that they gleaned the most out of the trainers’ presentations as possible. Thank you to each of our Distributor trainers who worked hard to share and present their knowledge! Here is the Advanced class listening intently to Grace Keohohou’s sponsoring presentation.


The final day of Seminar, Sunday, was great fun as we welcomed professional Makeup Artist Myke Michaels on stage with our SeneBlends Certified Makeup Artists for SenseCosmetics application tutorials. Myke coached attendees on all facets of makeup application with step-by-step instructions and tips. It was great having a celebrity makeup artist to the stars in-house, showing Distributors Hollywood tricks specific to SenseCosmetics! SeneGence Crown Princess and Lead Makeup Artist, Renee Stewart was also on-stage to share her vast wealth of knowledge and experience, guiding Myke from one model to the next.


Seminar 2014 was another success in a long line of successful SeneEvents J! We launched 5 new products that really work, recognized dozens of Distributors for their achievements, introduced new programs, contests, and trip locations, learned from knowledgeable trainers, and had fun! It is my hope that attendees will take all of the information and inspiration that they garnered at Seminar and begin immediately to implement it in their businesses.  The knowledge learned, friendships forged, and motivation attained there is priceless. If you missed out on joining us this year, make it a priority to attend Seminar 2015; you and your business can’t afford not to!

Now I and the corporate team will look forward to the next inspiring event, PIT Stop Media and Marketing Mavens in July!

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

Love, Joni
