Sizzling Summer Travels

Hello my Lovelies! It’s been a busy few weeks of traveling and meeting fantastic women all over the country, and I’d love to fill you in on the exciting happenings and impressive business-builders I’ve had the pleasure of meeting.

Earlier this month, my oldest son Alan and I flew to Dallas, Texas for the day to surprise all of the attendees at the Summer Sizzler training event, organized by Ruby Crown Princess Dawn Christian and Ruby Crown Princess Lisa Tippen-Morris. It was so wonderful meeting in person the inspiring women I’ve heard about from others and watched absolutely blossom in their SeneGence businesses over the past few months. I was thrilled to meet new Crown Princess Duo, Sharon & Jada! They are lovely ladies with fantastic business sense and the motivation and passion to take their business to the top.

I was excited to meet new Crown Princess, Kimberly Massey too! She is also a wonderful and inspiring businesswoman and her rapid rise up the Royal Ranks has been a joy to watch.

I too was able to meet soon-to-be Crown Princess, Princess Jenny Hemingway, who equally impressed me with her drive and determination (pictured to the right of me below).

I have so much admiration for all of our SeneGence Leaders, and am elated that SeneGence has been able to bless the lives of so many new Distributors, who truly understand what it means to live life in love and abundance, and work for it. Keep on growing and breaking records, ladies!

Shortly after my quick trip to Texas, my family and I took off for New York City, where we joined Crown Princess Lisa Tippen-Morris on her Bayou Beauty Queens incentive trip. We had the pleasure of sharing the trip with Lady Christi Farrar, Royal Jackie Bailey, and Countess Kathy Freeland. This trip was earned by Lisa’s Downlines members based on qualifications that Lisa set, and what a trip it was! We all had a fabulous time sight-seeing and exploring the sprawling metropolis that is NYC.

We also enjoyed some wonderful meals together, laughing and discussing life, family and the goals that we are going to reach together.

It was a pleasure spending time with these impressive business-builders. I treasure every opportunity I receive to get to know SeneGence Distributors better, and to hear about how they plan to use SeneGence for the betterment of themselves and their family.

The SeneGence career opportunity is truly unique, because it allows you to grow a successful business right alongside your friends, and even your family. A SeneGence business can become a legacy that you leave to your children and grandchildren- that can pass along down the generations. This idea of legacy and family bond is something that we at SeneGence find beautiful and compelling. For instance, new Crown Princess Duo, Sharon & Jada, are mother and daughter-in-law who work so beautifully together, and who are able to succeed and grow alongside each other in business, and experience the rewards of success together. Several of you are in business with your mother, aunt, daughter, or niece, and we would love to capture your special bond at a professional photo shoot at Leaders Conference 2015! The portraits of you and your loved one will be featured in the upcoming edition of the SeneScenes Annual Magazine to be released at Seminar 2016. Make it a goal to come to Leaders this October with your family member, and be professionally photographed and featured by SeneGence!

Next, Ben and I are off to Bologna, Italy for Cosmoprof Worldwide, the leading international event for professional beauty. We attend Cosmoprof to ensure that SeneGence continues to offer you the most cutting edge advanced products available today, and to do trend research for the hottest upcoming colors, packaging and more.


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

Prepping For the Upcoming Season and Staying On-Track

I hope that this month finds you growing in business and achieving your goals! At SeneGence, we just wrapped up an exciting sponsoring month. This is because our amazing Distributors are out there working their businesses, WOW-ing, qualifying for contests and programs, and taking advantage of the Bonus Bucks promotion. I congratulate each Distributor for seizing the daily opportunities that are presented to them to grow in business. We are expecting another fantastic month for July as well. We also added  NEW Crown Princesses to the SeneGence Royal Court: Kimberly Massey (who reached CP in 7 months) and the dynamic duo, Sharon & Jada (who reached CP in just 5 months)! Sharon & Jada hold the Record Breakers title for achieving Crown Princess in the shortest amount of time, with Kim Massey holding the second shortest. Congratulations ladies, you are truly inspiring!

I find that July and August are great months to finalize your business and marketing plans for the upcoming season. It may seem far, far away, but holidays like Back to School, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are a few months away. These are important holidays for your business, as they present great opportunities and occasions to market your highly desired SeneGence products and personable shopping experience. Begin NOW to fill your September booking calendar, plan your open houses, and finalize the promotions you will be running for your business. Challenge yourself to grow your SeneGence Team even more this month and the remaining months of this season, and you will see your business prosper into fall (or spring for SeneGence Australia).

July is the perfect time not only to finalize your holiday plan, but to evaluate and re-evaluate your business goals. This month marks the beginning of the second half of the 2015 calendar year, and the second quarter of our Seminar Year. How are you doing with the goals that you set for yourself at the beginning of 2015, or after Seminar in April? Did you meet your Sponsoring goals, or see your commission checks increase? Don’t lose sight of what you want to accomplish. Keep active in your business and do something to work towards achieving your goals everyday- even if all you have time for is making follow-up Customer service calls, or posting to Facebook. To stay accountable to your goals, involve others to help you stay motivated. Attend your weekly/monthly team meetings, post into your Team’s Facebook Groups, register to attend Area Training Events taught by SeneGence staff and Leading Distributors in your area, and log on for weekly webinar training. Keep active in the SeneGence community! I know that SeneGence Distributors are always willing to help each other grow and achieve goals- it’s one of the many things that makes our company culture so wonderful.


I bet you are enjoying our newly launched product, SeneDerm Advanced Hydration Body Lotion! It has made a huge difference for the health and texture of my skin. If you have not tried this extra moisturizing lotion yet, order yours today and experience it for yourself. You’ll be glad you did.

I wish you a wonderful month full of opportunities and growth, and remember to choose to live life in love and abundance…then work for it!

Aloha! SeneStars in Hawaii

Hello my Lovelies, I am so excited to tell you all about the SeneStar trip to Hawaii that took place this month. I’m sure I say this after every trip, but it’s true: each SeneGence trip just gets better and better! Ben and I were accompanied by 29 guests to the “Big Island,” where we enjoyed amazing natural surroundings with wonderful company!


SeneStar attendees enjoyed beautiful accommodations at the Hilton Waikoloa Village, with breathtaking, breezy ocean views, soft sand beaches and glistening pools.

11402812_10153388516208923_3510460020825899267_n 10353623_10153382882728923_4809743591287986035_n10570425_812172428836637_1772238472843605727_nWe began our Hawaiian adventure with some R&R! SeneGence reserved all of the cabanas at Lagoon Beach, and everyone had a great time lounging, swimming, snorkeling, paddle boarding and surfing in the turquoise water. It was absolute paradise, as everyone chose activities they wanted to do, even if it was simply taking a nap in their cabana, listening to crashing waves. Some explorers even saw some sea turtles and fish!






The next day we laced up our golf shoes and played a round on the pristine Hilton golf course. What a gorgeous and perfect day it was. The “SeneMen” really enjoyed it too!



That evening, SeneStars were invited to attend the wedding of Lisa and Kerry on the beach, followed by a real Hawaiian Luau! After the heartwarming beach ceremony, we all enjoyed authentic Hawaiian fare and fabulous entertainment, as we watched talented Hula dancers and fire performers. My blessings and congratulations to Lisa and her husband Kerry!





Another highlight of the trip was night snorkeling with manta rays. What an amazing life experience! These fantastic creatures have a wing span larger than our arm span, and they glide gently through the water as if they were flying. The boat sunset boat ride to and fro was an added plus!




The next morning, Ultimate Royals Sheila Young, Jeri Taylor-Swade, Cathy Hoolihan, Lisa Tippen Morris, Leta Greene, and Dawn Christian were treated to a shopping spree and lunch with me. We had a fantastic time bonding and picking up some great souvenirs for ourselves and loved ones back at home.


The SeneStar Trip to Hawaii really was amazing. 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 night.



I know that each and every SeneGence Distributor can earn the SeneStar trip if they make it a goal to be there! SeneStar 2016 will take place in beautiful Vancouver, BC! If you are a Distributor, take advantage of the rewards that SeneGence offers you for your hard work (if you aren’t a Distributor yet, join us today and begin working towards your vacation), and start planning to join me for SeneStar next year. Surprise your partner, your family, or a friend with a luxurious vacation of a lifetime; but most importantly, earn this trip for yourself. I know you can do it!

This is the key:

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

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!

ShadowSense Shimmers are our answer to your many requests for shimmery, shiny shadows. They perfectly complement our existing matte shadows, and add a pretty pop of elegant shimmer to your eye looks. I know Joni Rogers-Kante Founder & CEO 3 Message From The Founder you will love these, my favorite is Sandstone Pearl Shimmer. It’s a pearly champagne color perfect for highlighting.

My absolute must-have product from the new Seminar launches, though, is MakeSense Advanced Anti-Aging Foundation!

This is your year to earn a memorable SeneStar or LIPS vacation for yourself and a guest. This is your year to make sure you are recognized on stage at next year’s Seminar for your achievements in the SeneSales and SeneSponsoring programs. Make the 2015-2016 Seminar year the year of YOU. After all, as you achieve your business goals and qualify for these incredible programs, the benefits, financial and beyond, will extend to your family and loved ones. I also hope each of you take a moment to recognize your own growth. We have achieved so much together, and yet the opportunities that still lie ahead are infinite. I look forward to this New Year and continuing to be amazed and thrilled with all the incredible things to come.

Seminar was a wonderful, informational event, and I would like to thank all of you Lovelies who decided to fuel their business success and attend.

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.


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.


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!
