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.

goal-setting

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.

DSCN2821

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.               

 DSCN2892DSCN2890DSCN2891

 

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!

DSCN3036

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.

DSCN2965

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
11. Indonesia
12. Brazil
13. Guam

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.

Image

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.

 Image

Image

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.

Image

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

Image

 

Image

Image

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.

 Image

Image

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.

Image

Image

 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.

 Image

Image

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.

 Image

Image

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

Image

    Image

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

Image

Image

Image

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.

  Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

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!

Choose to live life in love and abundance…then work for it!

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.

Image

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.

10294446_10152092472609080_6853013533663320112_n

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!  :)

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.

Image

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.

Image

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.

Image

 

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.

DSC_4925

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
