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!  :)

Image

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!

Image

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.

Image

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.

Image

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.

Image

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

Gearing up for Seminar and Most Influential Royalty Recap

Hello my Lovelies, so much has happened since my last blog post! SeneGence headquarters are absolutely abuzz with exciting Seminar planning, collaborative meetings, and preparations for new Seminar product launches. We are gearing up for a very successful, exciting and “dazzling” Seminar! I am thrilled to listen to our guest trainers, DSWA Vice President Grace Keohohou and celebrity MUA, Myke Michaels. I am a true believer that we never stop learning new things that will help us succeed in our businesses. No matter how much you think you know, there is always somebody that knows more or can explain it better or in a new way.

I am also looking forward to meeting our Newbies, so many lovely new faces attending this year in Las Vegas, as well as my seasoned Beauties. We are going to paint the town SeneBlue!

ImageIn addition to Seminar preparations, I hosted the Most Influential Royalty event at my home. Most Influential Royalty attendees are chosen based on the most qualified Distributors in the SeneGence Royal Court, from Royal all the way up to Queen.  They are chosen on a number of factors, such as GSV (group sales volume) growth, influential leadership qualities, and their motivation to succeed in their businesses. They are the most influential Distributors in SeneGence, helping to guide and lead their teams to success. This year, I had the pleasure of hosting Royal Sandra Harley, Royal Saylor Olson, Lady Stacey Mitchell, Duchess Cathy Hoolihan, Countess Leta Greene, Princess Kathy Freeland, Crown Princess Leanne Avant, Crown Princess Lisa Johnson, Crown Princess Renee Stewart, and Queen Jeri Taylor-Swade along with VP of Distributor Development, Leslie Boyd-Bradley.

Image

During the course of the weekend, attendees enjoyed spending time with one another, inspiring and motivational goal discussions, creating art for their fellow Distributors attending Seminar, and of course gourmet meals! I love how these leaders think about the well-being and success of their team members; they embody the characteristics of great leaders, including confidence, commitment, ability to inspire, helpfulness, and a great positive attitude. It fills me with pride to know that they are out in the field, representing SeneGence and what the company stands for.

Image

One of the treats was a 7-course gourmet meal crafted by the amazing Chef Azmin Ghahreman, executive chef and owner of Sapphire Restaurant in Laguna Beach, CA. Chef Azmin has cooked for kings and presidents all over the world, so we thought it fitting that his incredible food would be a part of our Most Influential Royalty Weekend!

ImageImage

It was a wonderful weekend with incredible business-minded and motivated women. Now, I am looking forward to Seminar, which is coming up in a few short weeks. There is still time to register for this memorable event. I promise you, it is well worth the investment to attend, as we will make up the cost of your registration in free product gifts alone- not to mention training, meals, entertainment, and more. Be there to celebrate and learn with us, become inspired and motivated, be the first to see our new products, and have fun!

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

Love, Joni

LIPS Trip 2013 Switzerland Recap

Hello my Lovelies! I recently said farewell to the gorgeous country of Switzerland, where I accompanied LIPS Trip winners Crown Princess Lisa Johnson, Princess Dawn Christian, and Princess Kathy Freeland and their husbands for a week of winter wonderland bliss! It was a fast paced and fantastically beautiful trip, complete with breathtaking surroundings, pampering, luxury, and (very cold) adventure. I would love to share with you a little of what we did in this snowy paradise.

We began in Zurich, which is the largest city in Switzerland. It was incredibly beautiful, especially in the picturesque throes of winter.

ImageWhile in Zurich, we enjoyed a variety of fun activities, including visiting the Thermalbad hot tubs and spa, which was relaxing and luxurious. This spa was actually converted from an old brewery to a bathing sanctuary. It featured a grotto encased in hundred –year old vaulted stone walls and stunning views of Zurich’s skyline from an outdoor rooftop thermal bath. Here are Lisa and Dawn with their husbands, enjoying the spa day. Next time you see Cheyenne, Dawn’s Husband, ask him what surprises he encountered!

ImageImage

The next day we were taken on a three hour walking tour for up close and personal spectacular sight-seeing of Zurich as well, and dined over delicious Swiss meals.

Image

While there, I had the pleasure of training and working with LipSense Distributors as well. They are very motivated, willing to learn all they can about our products and career with many prepared and ready to climb the ladder to SeneSuccess. Here I am sharing the science behind our products with the SeneSwiss Distributors.

ImageImage

From Zurich, we travelled to Zermatt by train. Zermatt is a quaint, beautiful ski resort town in the mountains, home to the famous Matterhorn peak. The scenery there was absolutely breathtaking from every direction…exactly what you picture when you think of the Swiss Alps. Here are my boys Alan and William in front of the Matterhorn.

Image

While in Zermatt, we skied, shopped and enjoyed gourmet meals. We even got to stay in a real ice igloo at Igludorf! It was certainly FREEZING (!), but it was definitely a once-in-a-life-time experience to remember!

Image

Skiing at the base on the Matterhorn was an exhilarating experience – just ask Dawn and Kathy about their descent from the top!

All-in-all, it was a great trip, and I loved being able to spend time making memories and discussing future personal and business goals and dreams with Lisa, Dawn, and Kathy. What a pleasure it is to get to know their SeneHusbands and more about each of their lives. It means a lot to Ben and I and our boys to share the journey with those whom we share our lives and our common livelihood. We all play our parts in making SeneGence successful for each and every Distributor with whom lives we each touch. It takes a village…

LIPS Trip 2014 will be in Sydney, Australia, and I hope to share the trip with a big group of my lovely SeneGence Distributors, representing our commitment to work and play hard while prospering and seeing all the world has to offer! That means – you! Start taking steps now towards earning this wonderful trip, because it is sure to be full of adventure, fun, and great memories too. Log into your Back Office and find out exactly what you need to do to qualify, which simply is ‘to share’. When you earn the trip, not only are you rewarded tremendously for your hard work, but your business will grow and thrive as well, meaning you will reach other goals along the way. I know that with motivation and clearly set goals, each of you can earn the LIPS Trip!

I am excited to be back in the SeneGence corporate office this week, and continue to plan and work towards our next big event, Seminar “BeDazzled” in Las Vegas!

Until next time, choose to live life in love and abundance…then work for it (and reap the rewards!)

Love, Joni

On the Air!

Recently, I had the opportunity and pleasure to be a guest on The Voice of America, which is the leader in Internet media. The show host, Deanne DeMarco asked me to come on her show about “Today’s Most Inspiring Women.” Here I am being interviewed by Deanne.

Image 

 It was an honor to be invited to join her on the air. I discussed the history of how SeneGence came to be, my goals and dreams of helping other women, and the future of the company, among many other topics.  I loved revisiting the memories and stories of when SeneGence was first getting started, it gave me even more appreciation of how much the company has grown and for the people who have helped my dream be realized.  

You can click here to listen to my interview.

This month, I am traveling with my 3 men (husband Ben, and sons Alan and William) in Europe, meeting with country partners and discussing the possibility of growing SeneGence into new countries, and I will get to train with Polish and Swiss Distributors! I will also join the LIPS Trip qualifiers in Switzerland for an amazing vacation full of adventure, relaxation, and indulgence. Did you know that SeneGence Distributors have the opportunity to win an incredible international vacation annually? LIPS Trip 2014 will be in Australia! Begin working today towards joining us “Down Under” by focusing your business on this goal, or if you are not a SeneGence Distributor, join us this month for FREE and set your sights on this reward. www.senegence.com

Till next time my Lovelies, choose to live life in love and abundance…then work for it! Look out for more blog posts coming from my European travels!

You Have to Show Up to Win

Hello my Lovelies! I hope you are enjoying the holiday season and all of the wonderful things that go along with it, such as spending quality time with family and friends.

Recently, I was reminded of an important life lesson, one that I taught Alan many years ago when he did not want to attend a Karate tournament (I insisted he go as he made the commitment to his team…and, he won!). This past weekend, my youngest son, William, had an Indian Guides Fishing Tournament that he had made a commitment to participate in. Well, the morning of the tournament came along and he did not want to go. Ben and I told him that he had committed to his team to be there, so he really needed to go. He reluctantly went, and what do you know…he was well rewarded for showing up and participating, as he won a place in the tournament…the lesson ? YOU HAVE TO SHOW UP TO WIN!

ImageIf you want the rewards and benefits of winning, you must physically be there, BE PREPARED, DO THE WORK! This is an important lesson not just for William, but for all of us. If you want your business to soar, for you to make and exceed your sales and sponsoring goals, and to earn the SeneStar trip, you must put in the work to make it happen. You must make the time to improve yourself and increase your knowledge by attending PIT Stop, SeneU, and Seminar. Seek to become a Demoing Diva where you allow others to win by asking – “Customer? Or Distributor?”

I hope that you take this advice to heart and join the SeneGence team for PIT Stop in January and Seminar in April. These are events that you absolutely cannot miss if you are serious about succeeding in your business- I look forward to seeing you there and helping you to win.

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

East Coast Work and Play

Hello my Lovelies! Last week, I was joined by my husband Ben and SeneGence President, Michael Moad for a training geared towards executive management in Ohio. It was a great experience, as we all learned so much, gained additional knowledge and were given new tools to implement here at SeneGence that will surely help us to acheive our overall growth goals. It is important to be in a constant state of  improvement; seeking ways to improve the success of our business as well as our personal productivity and growth is vital to achieving the overall success we dream of, which also includes family life. Constant education and improvement is something that I personally strive for, and it’s also something we at SeneGence work to provide our Distributors, with each unique training event we offer (the next one is coming up in January- P.I.T. Stop Glam it Up!). The location of the Seminar was beautiful, located just outside of Dayton, Ohio; the architecture of the offices and buildings were expertly designed into nature.

Image

Next, it was on to New York City to train our NYC Distributors alongside Crown Princess Lisa Johnson and Distributor Maria Williams. But, before the training, a girl’s got to have a little fun, right? Lisa and I were joined by my son Alan for some city shopping and sightseeing in the city!

ImageThe training was a success and I had a fantastic time meeting new Distributors and connecting with those I already know. CP Lisa did a spectacular job training makeup artistry. I know that the attendees received knowledge and ideas that they can take home and implement into their own businesses. 

Image

These Certified Area Training events are ones that you should take advantage of when we come to your area. The SeneGence corporate team and leading Distributors work diligently to design trainings crafted especially for you. Make sure you always reference your weekly Sentiments email to see if there is an event coming soon to your area.

This week, Director of Distributor Development, Leslie Boyd-Bradley, is off to Australia to train in 3 cities: Perth, Brisbane, and Sydney. If you or someone you know lives near one of these areas, contact us to find out how to register. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn from the best and get your business off to a great start, or simply learn about our lucrative career opportunity and products that really work (Guests are free!). As for me, I’m back at the home office in Irvine, CA, and happy to see my son, William! He participated in his first chess tournament the other day, and I could not be more proud…..mostly because I don’t even know how to play, as the rules seem to be too complicated – and he’s six?!

R&R and Boys’ Fun Hunting

Hello my Lovelies! Last weekend, my Husband Ben and son William and I set out for a little exercise and another treasure hunt – Cache Hunting. Ever heard of it?  Turns out there are hidden treasures buried all over the world, placed in locations by one for other treasure hunters to find.  There’s an app that tells you the locations of the treasures – just enough information to lead you to the location, then the hunt begins.  Anyway, Ben and William placed their first treasure cache this weekend for other adventurers to find! Here are my boys in the wilderness: note the weatherproof flashlight containing their treasures hanging in the branches behind them…it could be there for years!

Image

 Looper was happy to join in on Texpedition’s adventures, and as always was on William’s heels.

Image

This was a busy week as we were hosting our lovely SeneGence International country partners from Indonesia, Poland, Switzerland, and Australia. While here in the U.S., they attended Leaders Conference and worked with our corporate team to develop strategies to continue the growth of SeneGence in their respective countries. I am ecstatic for the bright future of our International partners and am confident they are all capable and motivated to help as many women as possible discover our products and career that really works.

While here, Irene of SeneGence Indonesia and my son Alan became great friends. They did a lot of shopping together before Irene had to hop on the plane home!

Image

 The busy and fruitful week with friends and family ended with some rest and relaxation. William and I went to the spa for a little pampering in the afternoon. Polish shade of choice? Yellow to match William’s shoes of course!

Image

 At the end of the day, I was able to take a few moments to enjoy hot tea by my bedside before a restful night’s sleep, the perfect end to a full and productive week.

Image

 Now, on to the next task! The holidays are coming up fast, are you prepared? Keep your eye out for SeneGence Sentiments and SeneService in the coming month; we will be including great SeneGence holiday gift ideas that you can use as inspiration, winter makeup looks and trends, and holiday Demo ideas. We are here to help you and your family to have the fullest and most abundant holiday, please use the tools we give you as a SeneGence Distributor to your advantage. Now’s the time to fill your calendar with bookings of all types and finalizing any holiday promotions, packaging, or gift sets you have planned. SHOP AT YOUR OWN SENESTORE! The holiday gift-giving season can be the most lucrative time of year; don’t let it pass you by without thinking about your business!
