New Seminar Year Excitement

Happy New Year! You read correctly- at SeneGence, our year ends on March 31st and begins anew on April 1st, a time of new beginnings and fresh starts. We are just beginning the 2015-2016 Seminar Year, and already we have wonderful memories and accomplishments to treasure and celebrate from Seminar Rise to Royalty, which took place earlier this month. The amount of information and excitement that took place at Seminar was staggering- in the best way possible! Highlights include crowning new Crown Princess Cathy Hoolihan, learning valuable business and sales tips from Stephen Gregg and Hollywood makeup applications from Celebrity MUA Myke Michaels, and getting to spend time and have wonderful conversations with SeneGence Distributors from around the country and the world. In attendance, we had representatives from the United States, Australia, Canada, Switzerland, Poland, and Indonesia.

We launched three new WOW products: Purple Reign LipSense, a collection of ShadowSense Shimmers, and MakeSense Advanced Anti-Aging Foundation. Purple Reign is a gorgeous bright violet shade created by Make It Mine Winner, Sheri Moran, and fits in perfectly with the trend of matte electric lip shades so popular right now. It will also layer beautifully with existing LipSense shades. Try it with Kiss For A Cause for the most gorgeous pink-purple you’ve ever seen!

Ending the Seminar Year with Success

It’s almost the end of our Seminar year here at SeneGence, and what a fantastic one it has been! March is a time to say “goodbye” to one Seminar year and “hello!” to another one, and celebrate how much we have achieved during the past year. My heartfelt congratulations to each of you for the amazing progress you’ve made and achievements you’ve attained. Once again, watching you achieve your goals, talking to you on the phone and reading your inspiring posts on Facebook motivates ME daily to improve and grow. This year, we’ve again added thousands of new Distributors not only in the US but in our partner countries around the world, launched 6 new products that really work, a number of beautiful new SenseCosmetics shades, grown sales numbers significantly and traveled the globe to exciting destinations, together.

What a great year we have had together, and it’s not yet over! You still have time to reach your Seminar goals before the big event. Did you tell yourself you would reach Royal, add 10 new members to your team, or earn your SeneBlends Certification before Seminar? You can do it! Use these last weeks of the Seminar year to push for your goals. Just think about how fulfilling and rewarding it will be to walk across stage at Seminar and be recognized and rewarded in front of your SeneSisters. And, Joni Rogers-Kante Founder & CEO 3 Message From The Founder of course you will receive jewelry, recognition and congratulations. But remember, what you receive by achieving your goals is not as important as what you BECOME by achieving your goals. When you achieve your goals you become self-empowered, confident, and motivated to achieve more for yourself and your family. I, along with the entire SeneGence corporate staff, believe in you.

goal-setting

This is also a great time to look back on your year and find ways to improve. Maybe you didn’t push yourself as hard as you could have this past year, or didn’t achieve as much as you know you could have. Setting concrete goals is always the first step towards making your dreams reality. Remember, March both an ending, and a new beginning. Here’s my advice: make small goals, and write them down- commit them to paper and also make yourself accountable to your Upline or team. Small goals will ultimately help guide you closer to the achievement of your long term goals. These small goals might be attending more SeneGence events and trainings, sponsoring 3 more monthly, or becoming more organized in your business by using your Back Office tools. Whatever your business goal, attending Seminar 2015 will give you the tools and motivation to reach it- it’s the perfect way to start this year on the right track.

Seminar 2015 logo

Now, let us plan a new beginning filled with determination for an even more brilliant future. We’ll celebrate the end of the 2014-2015 Seminar year with joy and pride in what we’ve achieved, but also gratitude for the many blessings we have been able to experience. Hand-in-hand, we’ll resolve to improve, set concrete goals, and work to achieve our dreams. Don’t forget: it’s great to have a dream, but what good is a dream if it’s never realized? Make sure you are on the right path and are actively working towards achieving it- every day.

I am excited and looking forward to seeing many new and familiar faces at Seminar “Rise to Royalty” next month; it’s going to be an unforgettable event! If you can join us, register today. You will not want to miss the incredible opportunity to receive top-notch training and network with your fellow Distributors, high-ranking Royal Court members, and SeneGence staff, including myself.

Crown Princess Weekend 2015 Recap

Hello my Lovelies, much has happened since my last blog post! SeneGence headquarters are bustling with exciting Seminar planning, inter-department collaborative meetings, and preparations for new Seminar product launches. We are revving our engines for a very successful, exciting and productive Seminar! I am thrilled to listen to our guest trainers, the Sales Coaching Pro Stephen Gregg and celebrity MUA, Myke Michaels. It is my belief that we never stop learning new things that will help us succeed in our businesses. There is always room in our minds to listen to someone who might be able to help us learn something, even if it’s just to learn it in a new way. I am looking forward to seeing many lovely new faces attending this year in Irvine, and well as my seasoned pros. Sunny Southern California is going to be Sene-fied!

Seminar 2015 logo

In addition to Seminar preparations, I would like to share with you the happenings of last weekend, when I hosted Crown Princess Weekend at my home in Irvine, CA. 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 growth, sales and sponsoring, 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 Queen Jeri Taylor-Swade, Sapphire Crown Princess Sheila Young, Crown Princess Leanne Avant, Crown Princess Dawn Christian, Crown Princess Renee Stewart, Princess Cathy Hoolihan, Princess Amanda Vivial, Lady Lee Blakeney, Lady Jodie Bray of SeneGence Australia, Lady Karole Lewis, Lady Deb Perrin, Royal Sheri Joyce, Royal Linda Kump, Royal Christi Farrar, Royal Katie Sevenants, and Royal Kitty Wiemelt. As well, we missed having Ruby Crown Princess Lisa Johnson, Countess Jackie Bailey, Countess Cindy Watson, Lady Millie Green, Royal Ana Smith, and Royal Kim Smith due to weather and travel complications- but we were thinking of them!

Year after year, I continue to be impressed by SeneGence Leaders. Whether they are seasoned or newer to the SeneGence family, they always have one thing at least in common: they think about the well-being and success of their team members and are committed to their success. They also truly embody many of the characteristics of great leaders, including confidence, commitment, ability to inspire, helpfulness, and a great positive attitude. It fills my heart with happiness and pride that they are out in the field representing SeneGence and what it stands for. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for their beautiful personalities and positive attitudes and contributions. These women ARE SeneGence!

When attendees arrived, they were lead to glamorous black and white striped “Crown Princess Chambers,” complete with crystal chandeliers, plush carpets and beaded pillows, comfortable beds, and couches and chairs perfect for lounging or learning. The setting was fit for Royalty!

During the course of the weekend, attendees enjoyed spending time with one another, inspiring and motivational goal discussions, and focused leadership training with VP of Distributor Development, Leslie Boyd-Bradley, where topics ranged from mapping out training calendars to understanding the numbers required to promote through the Royal Ranks.

One of the things that SeneGence likes to treat Crown Princess Weekend attendees to, besides beautiful surroundings and valuable training, is delicious gourmet meals and gorgeous table settings. This event was no different, and our attendees truly dined like royalty, with stunning tableware, elegant lighting, fresh flowers, sunset views and of course, delicious food!

No Royal gathering would be complete without crafting handmade art pieces for our Seminar 2015 attendees. We had fun painting, coloring, and bedazzling dozens of “Rise to Royalty” artwork pieces to lovingly give away to each Seminar attendee next month. Every piece is personally designed by a SeneGence leader with unique color schemes and personalities instilled into each.

DSCN6807

Finally, attendees were also given the chance to be featured in the filming of a brand new Glamour Demo DVD. It was exciting to watch these businesswomen in action, selling the product to the camera and putting their unique touches on their demonstration technique. They are true professionals who know this business inside and out!

It was a fantastic weekend with some inspiring business-minded and motivated women. Now, the SeneGence corporate headquarters and myself are full steam ahead for Seminar, which is coming up in a few short weeks! There is still time to register for this incredible event. I guarantee 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!

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!

DSCN5875

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!

SeneGence Sydney Bridge

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!

When you earn a trip with us, you are treated like royalty and experience a first-class vacation, from beginning to end.

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.
